Search in the Dark

I turned off the lights
Then looked for it
In the dark
There I knew it must be
I knew in the dark
I must find it
But of course
It was so hard to see
I continued my search
May sound crazy
Without light
Tough search at best
But if I turned on the light
Some might see me
Searching for answers
I’d rather continue to guess
I’d rather search in the dark
Even stumble
Make bad choices
Take my failings in stride
Some might say
‘Oh now he’s religious’
He thinks God’s there
On his side
So I turned off the light
And kept searching
Keeping faith in the dark
Because of pride
And the longer I searched
The less peace I had
I had success
But joy I’d not find
So if you leave Christ
Out of your searching
You will never
Have true peace of mind
Of course others
Will see your light
They will notice
It’s intense and does really shine
That is why Jesus saves
Why He keeps you
He wants to say
‘This one is Mine’
Turn on the light
In your search for life’s answers
They are not of flesh
They are truly divine

Jeremiah 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Pr 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

Pr 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Pr 3:7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
