Brand New Start

There was a time in my life that I had nothing at all
Then God rang me up, and I answered his call
I found an inner peace, because I relied on Him
He lifted my burdens, and forgave me of my sins

Not a day went by without prayer and a devotional
The work he did in me, still makes me emotional
He brought me out of the mess, that I found myself in
Then I relied on myself and forgot about Him

Struggle after struggle seemed to enter my life
I lost it all once again, even lost me wife
No matter how hard I tried, I kept hitting walls
Tried to pull myself up, but I continued to fall

Self destruction and self pity was the soup of the day
I need to stop running and kneel down and pray
God will tear you down, and bring you up again
So there is no doubt, that it all came from Him

Forgive me Father, for I know I have sinned
Like the prodigal son, I want to come home again
Though my sin debt is high, you paid the price
For my sins, Christ Jesus, was my sacrifice

Open your arms and I will open my heart
Today is the day for a brand new start
Let me be a light that the world can see
I will do all things through Christ, who strengthens me
