The Sweeter Story

A wrestle in the darkness can feel a lonely thing

But when I trust in Jesus, there is a victory

Maybe not the way I wanted

Maybe there will still be pain

Maybe answers seem too distant

And maybe this is where I am supposed to be

When a struggle seems to be unending

There is strength building underneath

Maybe not in ways I notice

Maybe there are despairing days

Maybe freedom seems too obscure

And maybe here is where I find the key

When all else fails and I am empty

There is room for God to fill me fully

Maybe not with what I wanted

Maybe He knows a better way

Maybe His love is all I needed

To trust His hands with strength to carry

Burdens I bear can feel like safety

To lay them down seems an impossibility

Maybe not because I want them

Maybe I cannot trust in letting go

Maybe if I conquer the fear

Just maybe I will live the sweeter story here.
