Give me a revelation!

Sometimes you just need an exclamation point!
At least, that's how I feel about the song "Revelation" by Third Day.

I heard this song one morning and it just seemed to crystallize how I felt right at that moment--I just didn't have a clue as to where I was going.

This song is not a casual prayer request.

This is not the song of someone just sitting at a desk with their hands folded, running down their daily prayer list, asking God to, "please bless . . . please take care of . . . please be with . . . "

Rather, this is the song of someone begging, pleading, with hands upraised, stretched out to heaven, screaming, crying, "Give me a revelation!"

It fits very well with what my "word" for this year is, which is "dissatisfaction".

I don't know if Third Day intended for these lyrics to be written with an exclamation point, but as far as I'm concerned, they need it!

Just my .04, adjusted for inflation.
My life
Has led me down the road that's so uncertain
Now I am left alone 
And I am broken
Trying to find my way
Trying to find the faith that's gone
This time
I know that you are holding all the answers
I'm tired of losing hope
And taking chances
On roads that never seem
To be the ones that bring me home


Give me a revelation!
Show me what to do!
'Cause I've been trying to find my way
I haven't got a clue!
Tell me should I stay here?
Or do I need to move?
Give me a revelation!
I've got nothing without you
I've got nothing without you!


My life
Has led me down this path that's ever winding
Through every twist and turn
I'm always finding
That I am lost again
Tell me when this road will ever end?


Give me a revelation!
Show me what to do!
'Cause I've been trying to find my way
I haven't got a clue!
Tell me should I stay here?
Or do I need to move?
Give me a revelation!
I've got nothing without you
I've got nothing without you!


I don't know where I can turn
Tell me
When will I learn?
Won't you show me where I need to go?
Let me follow your lead
I know that it's the only way
That I can get back home


Give me a revelation!
Show me what to do!
'Cause I've been trying to find my way
I haven't got a clue!
Tell me should I stay here?
Or do I need to move?
Give me a revelation!
I've got nothing without you
I've got nothing without you!
