A Woman's Voice

SPIRITUAL SATURDAY ~ Shadow Walking ~ March 5, 2011 by Charles Betts


Often I have found myself with my back toward the Son

Creating my own shadows in which I stumble as I run

Trying to escape the voice of God that I hear calling

I rush on into the darkness, tripping, blindly falling


The shadows make it difficult. It’s just so hard to see

All the snares and pitfalls that are waiting there for me

To think that I know better makes it hard to understand

Why I’d turn my back on God and let go of Jesus’ hand


Out here in the shadows, just a glimpse of fading light

And a voice I can’t remember, teaching me what’s right

I put it all behind me for a chance at wealth and fame

Knowing deep inside me, it would only bring me shame


Then I cry out from the darkness, my soul filled with pain

Begging for forgiveness. He would take me back again

Now it’s so much better with the Son upon my face

Walking in the truth and light of God’s amazing Grace
