To Stand

I feel you reaching out for me calling me to come

To stand despite my brokeness and failure that leaves me numb

There are no illusions left for me,  I was sure I could never live this Christian life

But patiently you wait for me , to whisper my helplessness, to ever win the fight

So you can fill me with your spirit and guide my steps into the light

Knowing I no longer walk alone, because you live inside my heart

The sooner I submit myself to you, my fear and stress will soon depart

And your peace will be a salve upon my wounds and your truth my path to seek

Showing me  how you can raise me up, in times I feel so weak

And if I ever learn to live my life this way, I know I will never be alone

For you will thrive in my conquered heart and at last I will be home .

A Heart Under Siege

Psalm 31:21

“Praise be to the Lord

For He showed me the wonders of his love

When I was in a city under siege.”

A Heart Under Siege

When I had no one You were there

When no one believed in me You always cared

When I was crippled You carried me

When I was blind You helped me see

Jesus, You set the captive free

Free from self loathing, free from regret

Free to be me without worry or frets

Always forgiving You showed the way

You broke up the boulders of shame and remorse day after day

Binding up wounds with Your love and Your grace

Finding strength in Your promises while seeking your face

Teaching me how to be only me

And not what others think I should be

For you have told me I am the work of your hands

It doesn’t matter if others don’t understand

The path that you want me to walk as you lead

All the while rescuing a heart under siege

Your Faith Will Be Your Song

Ephesians 6:16

“above all, taking the shield of faith with which
you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of
the wicked one.”

1 John 1:5-7

This is the message which we have heard
from Him and declare to you, that God is light
and in Him is no darkness at all
6 If we say we have fellowship with Him,
and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice
the truth
7 But if walk in the light as He is in the light
we have fellowship with one another, and the
blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin

Isaiah 12:2

“Behold God is my salvation
I will trust and not be afraid
For Yah the Lord, is my strength
and song;
He has also become my salvation.

Your Faith Will be Your Song

Although I am under rainy skies and I can hear the thunder loudly  bellow

The Lord says hush my child trust and not be afraid, of things that linger in the shadows

For while you walk in the light with Me, you are safe and sound

It’s when you wander far from Me, that trouble soon abounds

Your best defense of defeating fear, is to bring it to My feet

Than with my word you will speak to it and chase away defeat

Why do you worry so about the things that kill the body

For tonight could claim your very soul, tell me  what would you embody

Would you be going to paradise full of My Glory and My Grace

Or would you be an empty shell that is not called to a better place

You see the safest place for you, is to stay close to Me

Learn My ways and obey My commands and than you will be free

And if the devil should attack your shield of faith you should find it strong

Because of all you learned from Me your faith will be your song

Faith for Me

Acts 17:27-28
“27 that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though he is not far from each one of us;28 for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, for we also are His children.”

Hebrews 11:1
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for,
The conviction of things not seen.”

Faith for Me

Faith for me is believing that You won’t leave me in the condition You found me in
Faith for me is believing that You do exist and You cover all my sins
Faith for me is knowing Your there even if I can’t see You
Faith for me is when You cause something to happen that verifies Your listening before I ask You too
Faith for me is when You answer prayer in a way I know it must be You
Faith for me is learning about Your promises and watching them come true
Faith for me is the blessings that You give, for things I really don’t deserve
Faith for me is seeing miracles happen for God’s people who I serve
Faith for me is looking for Your light when evil comes to call
Faith for me is hearing no and learning to take a fall
Faith for me is sharing all I think and feel with You
Faith for me is knowing that You feel the same way too
Faith for me is searching to know Your character, the essence of who You are
Faith for me is knowing that You searched for me, my Awesome God the one who made the stars
Faith for me is to know that Your perfecting me, to be the person of Your heart
Faith for me is knowing that I am accepted as You daughter unconditionally and we’ll never part

The Old Man

Songs of Solomon 2:8-10
“The voice of my beloved!
Behold he comes
Leaping upon the mountains,
skipping upon the hills.
My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag.
Behold he stands behind our wall;
He is looking through our windows,
Gazing through the lattice.
My beloved spoke and said to me;
Rise up, my love, my love my fair one
And come away.”

More than anything in the world the Lord wants to have an intimate relationship with us. In order to cultivate this we as believers must find quiet time alone to be with the Lord. This is where we should pray and talk to him about our concerns and joys. Just like the stag that is looking through the windows are walls are always before the Lord and he is waiting for us to share our pain, our joy, our tears and our laughter so he can guide us, comfort us, and protect us. All we have  to do is make the time.

The Old Man

Thank you Lord for Your piercing eye

that can spot trouble on the fly

You swoop right down to warn me, but tonight I passed you by

You can see that I was busy,  I stayed way past five

I need that promotion to pay all my earthly bills

And You were probably busy, healing lots of other people’s ills

Lord You have given me a great start, You saved my very life

But I can’t meet with You tomorrow, we have to meet the bosses wife

I  really want to learn about You and all that you hold dear

But the kids  come this Saturday, but I’ll make time for You don’t fear

We were looking forward to the Sunday service but will have to take a pass

The family’s been invited to the cottage, these invitations happen so darn fast

Today is another day and Susie has the flu

I just don’t feel like sitting down with all I have to do

I was out getting groceries when I came across this old man

Who face was worn and his clothes were old and he said he knew my greatest fan

What do you mean by that, you don’ t know me from Adam

He said I know the Lord, your greatest friend, why don’t you have at him

Sir I said,  whatever do you mean, the Lord is very busy why would he miss me

He said because you are his child and he is so in love with thee

And every time you pass him by he is distraught from your rebuff

I said in my defense, I been busy making a better life, times they’ve been so tough

The man said who do you think blessed your work, your home, and your lovely wife

In fact he saved your soul from hell, by giving up His very life

He will never ever tell you about the  pain you put him  through

But if you just let him in, he’ll reveal to you, all that he has for you

For times are getting harder and the world is getting cruel

And all the money in the world won’t save you, once evil pays it dues.

So while the sun is shinning and the Lord still calls on you

Please make time and learn who He is and what He wants to do

And maybe one day you’ll be here, trying to win one for the Lord

Convinced of all the good He does and all the peace He has in store

For all those Sick, lost and hurting people, He loves with all his heart

Maybe it will be your turn, to help others make a brand new start

To have their sin forgotten and to have their soul so loved

That years of emptiness and cruelties are healed from Jesus up above

You could be apart of this, if you’d only take the time

The ball is in your corner, the Lord is waiting on your dime

I must admit, I took the slow way home and thought of that old man

How did he know, I would be there, how did he know my plans

Well it really didn’t matter, because his words hit home today

Suddenly I was so aware of what I had to lose and so grateful to that brave old man and all that he had to say

I kissed my wife when I got home and brought her up some dinner

Than I turned off my phone, my computer and fell upon my knee’s and confessed I was sinner

With tear-stained cheeks I called to the Lord and said that I was sorry

Than I thanked him for that old man and his heart-felt story

Lord just because I know Your name doesn’t mean I know You

But if you give me another shot, I hope you will be true

And teach me all I need to know, so I can be like that old man

I know I can make it, if You’ll hold my hand

And show me how, I can win one for Your Glory

So another hurting human soul, can begin a brand new story.
