A New Song

Psalm 40:3…He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God

Psalm 98:1…Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvellous things

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

This is a new song for me, I just can’t help myself.

It reminded me of an old poem I wrote and blogged way back when I first started blogging.

I love to sing, if you don’t then I’m sorry, but after all this is my blog,

and it is…”A place where I can be me!”

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

This is the poem I spoke of

Who am I?

by Lisa Lock

Can anyone tell me who I am?

As I sit and wait to see God’s plan

Only times ticking on, and I’m getting older

My once hot faith is now growing colder

Years spent in searching

Trying to understand

Making sense of perseverance

Being guided by Gods hand

Only now I feel a nuisance

’cause it’s me who’s feeling weak

I don’t know where I’m going

I don’t know what I seek

Trying for so long to hear this nagging voice

I need a navigator to de-code me with this choice

To follow in the path the Lord wants me to take

Become Gods will for me, and not become a fake

Serenity is what I need, and not a head of chaos

Can you help me Jesus? Give me strength to bear this cross

Emotionally damaged, my life is yours, I’m waiting to see where to go

I don’t have the confidence on my own, my self-esteem is extremely low

I feel a failure most of the time

I’m negative about myself

I’m trying to reprogram how I think

It’s not good for my mental health

Still small voice, calmly speak

As your will I will seek

Be my friend as well as my Lord

As I fight the good fight

Choose to walk in your light

Be my armour

my shield

and

my sword

  1. Lovely to hear that you love to sing! Me too! After going to Yom Kippur services on Friday night (very emotional–my first services in awhile), I found myself singing psalms I hadn’t sung in years. My favorite is “Esa Einei”: I look to the hills/From where will my help come?/ My help comes from God/Maker of heaven and earth.”

    I feel like an alien hippie, too. Except that sometimes I think that I’m one of the few native earthlings and that most people are from another planet. Depends on the day. 🙂

    • Hi Rachel,
      Thank you for popping by and thank you for your comment . You got me interested, so I went on a little trip around YouTube. I’m such a YouTube junkie…lol
      I loved this one, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpji1QIRKn4
      Then I found this which really did appeal to my dyslexic/aspie, visual-brain,

      And lastly because I used to sing in a Taize choir at one of the churches I attended.

      Thank you again and I’m so glad I’m not the only Alienhippy around.
      Love and hugs. x

  2. Another really beautiful and heartfelt poem. I especially loved the lines “My once hot faith is now growing colder”. This poem could have been written about me! Thanks for being able to express your emotins so well in poetry form xx

    • Arrr, you are so lovely Chloe.
      I wrote this poem in 2008. I can see now that the times when we feel that our faith is growing cold it is because we are being moulded/crafted/pruned/sifted
      The superficial religious self righteousness that I was holding onto at that time, was actually what was making me feel cold and cutting me off. The Father’s love never left me, I just needed to be stripped and refined.
      Hold onto these lines my friend if this is how you are feeling,

      Still small voice, calmly speak
      As your will I will seek
      Be my friend as well as my Lord
      As I fight the good fight
      Choose to walk in your light
      Be my armour my shield
      and my sword

      God bless you,
      Love and hugs. Lisa. x
