Thorn in my flesh

How troublesome It may have seem to be.
Reminding myself of how I need Thee,
I have search all over too and far.
Nothing holds to your magnificence.
Thorn in the flesh ...
You didn't have to let it be...
Thorn in Paul's flesh was me...
You kept me when my world was crumbling full of sin...
You didn't let me stumble...Nor let my faith bend...
Thorn in my flesh..
I remain humble at all cost..
You protected my spirit...
You turn fear into praise....
I stay on my knees because i am truly amazed...
Thorn in my flesh....
Father.." I will go into the deepest valley '
Dryest Desert too ..
For in my weakness..
your strength carries me through....
