They told me you’d show me where to go
They said you’d always lead the way
That I could count on you for direction
But all I’ve been able to count on you for lately
They said you cause everything that happens
But bad has happened
And i can’t believe you’d be behind it.
I don’t believe them anymore
But I still kind of believe in you.
Are you there?

I was driving home late one night and got to thinking that there aren’t a whole lot of songs on Christian radio that speak to people who aren’t certain of everything, and I got this idea to write some Psalms for us. I didn’t really follow standard Psalm format, but I thought, we need poetry that helps us see that we’re not alone in our questions.
If you’re reading this and thinking, “I can fix this,” you’re the reason I was nervous about publishing this in the first place.
If you’re reading this and thinking, “I thought I was the only one who felt that way,” this is for you.
