I'm Alive!

I wanted to thank you, thank you, thank you!

When I was locked inside my head
When I was lost in a maze of doubt
You called my name and woke me up
You called my name and let me out

And when I chased one more mirage
'til I was tired and parched again
You gave me one more cup to fill
And sent me one more desert rain

I was sure of all I knew
I knew the world was mine to claim
I had directions printed out
And then I hit a world of shame

Out there alone and left to die
Cut off from You, my sole supply
You shed your tears for me and then
You took my hand and raised me high

I'm alive, I'm on fire
And my spirit burns with desire
You set me alive
And with no way to hold it inside

I wanted to thank you, thank you, thank you!

What an amazing life we have in Christ, the lonely despair and shame that the devil wants us to live in has been taken away from us in exchange for peace, forgiveness and joy.
