Let Me Tell You Why

Let me tell you why

I

Walked away from Christ

It’s not because I wanted to do wrong

But because I struggled to do right 

Like turning out the light

Because the glory was to bright

And I was a creature of the night 
Let me tell you why

I

Walked away from the Saviour

Not because I had no will power 

But a weak will

I couldn’t say no in the tempted hour

Doesn’t mean I didn’t want to climb the tower

But I was prepared to climb against a shower

Not a waterfall of self in full power
Let me tell you why 

Walked away from Christ

It’s not because I walked alone

But because I was the leader of the group

And all thought I was the strength of the troop

And satan saw it too

And shot for two

And nothing but net swish and no alley-oop

I expected words to lighten that which made me stoop

Didn’t so I flew the coop

And they continued to whoop whoop

Not even intercession in a prayer group

Maybe no one else on the team shared my struggle 
Let me tell you why 

Walked away from God 

It’s not because I tried to hurt Him

But I wanted to stop hurting Him with my sin

Trying but always falling 

This constant backsliding 

And it’s not that I gave up, I gave in
Let me tell you why 

Walked away from Him

It’s not because I wanted to walk away

But because I tried to walk with Him

You can’t divorce if you are not married to Him

You see the problem I am in

Is unique to those who walk this thin

Road we walk when we decide

For right

And finally walk in the light
You’ve seen children roll down the grassy hillside

That’s easy

But when you decide 

It’s not a game and start to make the climb

Your intentions you can longer hide

And the enemy has you in his sight

But he knows Who is by your side

So he whispers “you’re out your stride”

It’s not an easy ride
The problem is not that we never stood up

The problem is we stood and played up

The expectation that was layed up

And acted like it never made up

Our motive to stay up
The problem didn’t begin when we

Walked away you see

The problem started when we stopped thinking the Cross was for me
Let me tell you why

I

Had an

I

Problem. The Road was too tough for me.

We think Calvary was easy

And it’s presented to be

Until you take the time to read

And see

Wait…..

He did this for me!?

He became sin so I can live free

His love for me, special delivery 

He became sin so I don’t have to be

And by faith alone can I live Holy
Let me tell you why

We walked away

Not because we never began

But because we stopped looking at Him as our stay
