Ok, this one was mainly written because of some specific thing I feel God has been leading me to! Well, it's a prayer I've prayed for a long time now asking God for direction... and for some reason, I feel He's been pointing me in the direction in which all logic and human understanding says that can't be... or at least 75% of the people I've talked to said it shouldn't be. However, everytime I ask God to show me if it really is Him telling me this, He continues to do so (or is it my imagination?). I don't know, and I don't want to get too wierd, but I also wrote this as a song for those who may be called to preach or something. I felt like God was calling me to be a Christian singer/songwriter not long after my dad felt he was being called to preach in 2007. I asked him one day how you know God's calling you to do something, and he said "you'll just know." 2nd verse makes a point. It was either my dad or youth pastor that said if you feel God's calling you to do something that you can do without God's help, it's not a calling.
I feel through all these circumstances,
You're calling me to take my chances...
or is it me just getting in the way of You?
How can I really know if this is You?
Oh Lord, I just don't know what I should do.
I feel You're calling me out of the ordinary. Is it true?
Are You calling me tonight?
'Cause I'm not sure if I'm right!
I'm just a man, I don't understand!
What do You want me to do?
'Cause I don't know if it's true!
I would gladly, but help me to see!
Oh Lord, speak to me!
I feel it's my imagination,
because it's out my comprehension.
I don't feel I have the strength to do
what You want me to do!
But You say, "This is not all about you!
It's not your strength in which you're called to do!
Rely on Me, and I'll help you get through, it's true!"
Show me the way!
Lord, speak to me!
Help me to know
if You're calling me!
Oh, You say that it's not all about me!
The clouds are clear, I think I finally see!
Just help me be what You have called me to be!
