Drifter by DecembeRadio ( Music Video)

In my messy spirituality, I have been a drifter and a prodigal son many times – for days, months and even years. My faith journey has not been one of living a so-called victorious life, but living in brokenness – struggling with my sinfulness, fighting against my many sins, feeling my humanity daily, experiencing many dark nights of my soul; and stumbling, limping or just failing consciously, and in the midst of all that messy life experiencing the faithfulness, goodness, grace, mercy, and forgiveness of God through the Person and Work of Jesus Christ towards me! In the midst of my sinfulness and brokenness, I look to Christ, and Christ Alone who lived perfectly the victorious life for me. Christ is my victory!

Question: What about you, have you been a drifter and a prodigal son in your faith journey?

I used to have a home
A place i started from
A place to call my own
Bright lights and late nights
The devil took me on a midnight ride
Left me out in the desert on my own
Now i feel alone
I need a hand
To help me find my way back home

I’m a drifter out on a dead end road
Trying to find my way back home
To get to you, oh to get to you
Lord i’ve been gone for far too long
Headed to places i don’t belong
And i’ve got to get back home to you

Sometimes i think about the past
The road that i was on
The one that lead me home
I’ll walk on another day
I may wonder but i never stray
Cause i found out the hard way sin don’t pay
Now i feel alone
I need a hand
To help me find my way back home

I’m a drifter out on a dead end road
Trying to find my way back home
To get to you, oh to get to you
Lord i’ve been gone for far too long
Headed to places i don’t belong
And i’ve got to get back home to you

And when i feel the night is closing in
And i can barely breathe the air
I just remember that i’ve got a friend
Who really cares
Oh who really cares

I’m a drifter out on a dead end road
Trying to find my way back home
To get to you, oh to get to you
Lord i’ve been gone for far too long
Headed to places i don’t belong
And i’ve got to get back home to you
