I first got acquainted with the Lord’s hand when I was 18,
Had just accepted the Lord,immediately after,lost my dad,
Bad grades in college and a messed up family,
I just wanted to die.
Just when I was contemplating the great act of suicide,
I felt a hand on my head and I knew instantly it was the Lord's
And my life has never been the same again.
Everyone in the family was deciding my life,
Marriage /career I seemed to have no choice
I just had to go in with the pool of voices
But he Lord’s hand provided me the best in both cases
Nothing came to me too easy, for every blessing there was a fight
The battles increased with the years
And I spent many a day in tears
But I always knew the Lord will give me the victory.
I realized over the years just like grandfather did at the age of 94
‘Nee matharam madhee… (In Malayalam an Indian language)
Lord it’s only you I need.
