It’s in the moment where I feel most helpless that I need to turn

This lesson is simple but sometimes so hard to learn

If I’m helpless then I have no answers, I have no solutions for my problems

I need to turn to someone who knows how to solve them

I used to turn to something, anything to alter my minds sound

But when my mind would speak again no answers would be found

Only more helplessness stuck in my mind doomed for me to keep

It seems as though I dug my hole, once again, even more deep

When God was mentioned, I learned to always quickly turn away

So wrongfully directed, turning towards my own dismay

Then one day I tried something different, turning towards Him

I was amazed at the soundness and joy this brought in

I have practiced this for many years not always getting it right

Sometimes no soundness will come, and even that’s alright

I must have trust that he knows best even if to me it isn’t known

I have much better results relying on His mind than relying on my own

This practice has brought more soundness and more joy with each passing day

Simply learning to turn towards instead of turning away
