Where do we turn when life gets hard?
Destructive habits can be enticing when life is low
but the things of this world don’t satisfy us at the deepest level.
They numb the pain for a while but don’t bring any lasting hope. God calls us to return to him.
He is our first love. His love satisfies our aching hearts and brings hope when we are depressed.
His loving character contrasts starkly with the selfish living that we’re surrounded by.
The bible says “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7)
Living in this world often feels so overwhelming
Pressure building up, tearing you down
People everywhere so controlling, so demanding
Love is growing cold, gone without a sound
I want to fall in love again… I’m so alone
The power of your spirit in my heart
God I am desperate for your touch… to live again
Take me back to my first love
I’m longing for your touch
Living in this world, leaves you feeling love is colder
Everywhere you go the outlook is grim
People’s main concerns;
building wealth and getting older
It is hard to breathe, the candle so dim
