Sometimes I Cry

Sometimes I Cry

I look the part, blend in with the rest of the crowd.
I know the routine,
pack a list of the Bible studies in town.
Watch Christian TV, I know all the preachers and their cliche's.
I've been born again and without a doubt I know I'm saved.

But sometimes I hurt,
Sometimes I cry-
Sometimes I can't get it right
no matter how hard I seem to try.
Sometimes I fall down,
Stumble over my own disguise.
I try to look strong as the whole world looks on,
But sometimes alone I cry.

I try to speak faith, never give the devil one inch to get in.
I do worship and praise,
let everybody know just where that I stand.
On the back of my ride is a fish & a cross for the world to see.
I know God is good all of the time, there's no doubt for me.

That was beautiful. I feel like that sometimes. Just always trying to do everything, keep up with everything and always have a brave face on. No one sees me when I'm all alone falling apart. I'm so glad my Lord is with me and helps me. Because lately without Him I truly couldn't make it. Life has been too busy for me and I need to make some changes, I just don't know where. Everything I do I love. But it's too much. I can't keep going at this pace. I needed to see this song. I'm going to look it up and listen to it as well! Thanks!
