I know you had a plan for me;
I chose my path so stubbornly!
Now looking back my road is black.
I cannot change this path without Thee.
Body broken, mind unsound;
I’ve given up, there’s no more ground.
A twisted path is all I see–
Oh dearest Lord please help me.
Please wake me up, un-taint my heart!
Straighten my road, perfect my part.
Revise my plan, help me to stand
and keep me safe from Satan’s hand.
Lord, make my dark road white as snow.
Forgive my sins, restore my soul.
Purify my heart and make it whole.
Set me free that I may show
Other sinners the way to go.
While I cannot speak for other Christians, my life road has been rather rocky with both physical and mental disorders. I wrote this a long time ago when I was gripped with issues related to Borderline Personality Disorder. At the time, I didnt know what was wrong, and God in His mercy has allowed me to be diagnosed and treated. Just because one is a Christian doesn’t mean that one has perfect mental health. God heals whom He will, and for others He plans to use your problem or condition to further His will. Seek His will and be ready for the call.
