Running Back to you

How can you forgive me when I've often gone astray
How can you think of me when I do things my way
Turning my back from you
The one who loved me first
Having my own desires
Renewing worldly thirst

You told me you loved me and I should make up my mind
You tell me come back now, but I keep wasting time
Feeling so very weak you say I can be strong
I feel I've gone too far you tell me to come home
You love me still
And I know this is real

Chorus:
And I am running back to you
I see your standing there for me
Your arms are opened wide
And I don't have to cry no more
You're standing there for me
And I am running back to you,
Why do I go away when I know I am no good when I'm on my own.

You told me you could keep me, but I've turned it away
I failed you so much now I don't know what to say
Using the same excuse that I am just a man
You tell me you've been there and hold your nail scarred hands so I can see
Now I know I am free

Chorus:
And I am running back to you
I see your standing there for me
Your arms are opened wide
And I don't have to cry no more
You're standing there for me and I am running back to you,
Why do I go away when I know I am no good when I'm on my own.

I have taken advantage of your love and grace
Forgive me Lord and take me home, take me home.
I'm running to you Jesus please take me home,
You see I've been in this run way too long and I can't do right anymore.
I'm tired of pain and I don't like fear but Lord I want to be more sincere.
I never should have left your side.
Return me to your guiding light I'm running back to you I see your standing there for me.

    I was once was on the straight and narrow path to redemption, and I allowed things in my life to steer me back to a carnal mindset. I'm bringing back sin in my life I was once delivered from and acting out in it. Now is see I rathered be with Jesus than the enemy and confess my sins to Jesus and asking can I come back to his Kingdom. I love you Lord with all my heart and soul.
