"Tears blocking my path"

“Tears blocking the sun of day”

I have walked through the waters of sorrow.
Tears blocking the sun of day
as I stumbled each step of the way.
 
My voice softened to a whisper of sound
in calling my Lord.
I am weary from pushing these feet
wanting to rest but cannot.
Was the answer I seek finally before me?
 
It was only when I finally gave up on me
and turned to thee
that the answer awaited me.
 
Only through sorrow and pain
can we know what Jesus gave us through His death.
Death of the mind
death of desire
death of worldly want.
 
Only then can we surrender to His will
and give up our own do we find Him
in the midst of eternal love.
A garment of light to carry us forward
so that we never will shed a tear again.
