Then Alpha and Omega

He is the Alpha
The beginning
He was before anything else was
He spoke and there was Light
Before that only darkness ruled
He spoke the world into existence
He formed the sun
The moon and the stars
With His voice
The plants and trees
Came forth at His command
The animals and birds and fish
The insects
Flying and crawling insects
Appeared when He spoke
All of creation came forth by His Word
Except man
He formed man from the dust of the ground
With His tender loving hands
Every organ
Every muscle
Every bone
Hundreds of miles of veins and arteries
An intricate web of nerves
All assembled by His hand
Then He breathed life into the man
The only part of creation that was not spoken into existence
But lovingly
And carefully crafted
Molded like clay
Then He made the woman from man
From a rib He formed her
She was formed to be with Him
The same tender care went into forming her
As forming him
She is his helpmate
Because man needed help
Help to see his faults
Help to walk with God
Help to survive
He looked at all the creation He had made
And said it is good
Everything that is was made by Him
Nothing came by itself
He is the Alpha

He is the Omega
Time does not have hold on Him
He will be until forever
Until there is no more time
Even then he will still be
He will still be guiding us
Watching over us
Caring for us
Providing for us
As He made all things in the beginning
He will keep all things going for eternity
There is no end to Him
He will not die
He will not fade away
He will not disappear
He will be there
When we need Him
When we long for Him
He will come to our side
His Word will also be there
His Word will never fail
Every promise
Every prophecy
Every hope
Will come to pass
And will last for all time
When time is no more
He will still go on
His Word will still go on
His love will still go on
He is the Omega

Yesterday He is the same
Tomorrow He is the same
Today He is the same
He never changes
He is still creator
He still molds us
And shapes us
As a potter does the clay
So are we in His hands
He never stops loving us
Caring for us
Providing for us
Delivering us
Guiding us
Protecting us
From the very beginning
Until the very end
His love will not change
It will always remain
You can depend on it
Moe than the sunrise
More than the stars that shine
More than the day and night
More than anything
You can depend on His Word
It will never fail
It will never return void
His Word will accomplish what He desires
Every time
It will move your mountains
It will dispel your enemies
It will provide your needs
It will comfort your sorrow
It will turn storms into peace
It will guide you on your way
His Word is who He is
Forever and forever
The Alpha
The Omega
The here and now
Always the same
Always remains

You Are My Truth

You are my truth
I can depend on you
When all the world does not know truth
I can point to you
I can trust in you
You will never fail me
Or forsake me
Your truth is a testament I can rely on
Your promises are true
Your warnings are true
Your judgments are true
Your prophecies are true
I never have to wonder
Or doubt
Or question
Because they were true
They are true
And they always will be true
When I struggle
When I have trials
When I have worries
Or sorrows
Your truth will revive me
Your truth will pull me out
When I question my way
Your truth will show me the way
When I am without good health
Your truth says You are my healer
When I fall into a dark place
Your truth says you are my deliverer
When the enemy comes in like a flood
You will raise up a standard against him
That standard is your truth
I never have to live in fear
Or wonder if I will make it through
For you are my truth

You Are My Light

You are my Light
You shine into the darkness of my soul
Showing me the error of my ways
Shedding your brilliance on my plight
Revealing to me my hidden desires
The desires of my deceitful heart
I have trusted in my heart
It tells me all is well
My heart tells me I am a good man
The blood pumping organ that brings life to my body
Providing nourishment to my cells
Keeping everything going
Everything running
Is true and faithful to my physical body
My heart will always do everything it can
To make the provisions needed for my well being
Physically
But not spiritually
Spiritually my heart does not reveal my sin
It hides it in darkness
Until the light of Jesus shines in
Revealing my sin
This light only comes when I ask
When the Holy Spirit convicts me of sin
Then the Light comes in
The Light that is Jesus
The Light that opens up the dark places
The Light that allows me to see myself as I am
A sinner in need of Salvation
Shine you’re light into my heart Lord
Shine it every day
Reveal every dark place
Every hidden sin
Every wicked way
So that I might truly repent
Not from my intellect and what I know
But by what you reveal to me
I do not want to be intellectually saved
I want to be cleansed completely
Washed with the blood of the Lamb
Free from all sin
All iniquity
Only your Light can do that
So shine your Light into my soul
For you are my Light

I’m Forever Grateful

I was shackled
Bound with chains
Heavy chains
They wrapped around me like a serpent
My mind was in a prison
A prison of sin
Of shame
Of doubt and sadness
I looed good on the outside
But these chains bound my spirit
My mind
My soul
My being
There seemed to be no escape
I could not loose the chains
I could not pick the lock that held them
I could not free myself
I was stuck in darkness
Solitude loomed over me
I sank deeper
And deeper
Into the depravity of my sin’
My thoughts
My actions
I felt surrounded by a force
Too strong for me to fight
It beat me down every day
I became weary
And depressed
I was ready to just give up

Then I met Jesus
I met the Savior
The Redeemer
I learned he died for me
For my sin
To take away my shame
And doubt
And guilt
He came to loose the chains that bound me
He came to fight my battle for me
He came to bring victory
All I had to do was call His name
Confess my sins
Repent of my ways
Put on His yoke
Make Him my Lord
And follow Him
The rest of my days
He would free me
He would fight for me
He would give me strength
And joy
And peace
He would guide me safely through life
He would teach me His ways
He would become my friend
Always with me
Always helping me

Jesus, I’m yours
I’, all yours
I trusted in you
And you set me free
Free from my shackles
Free from the chains of sin
You set me feet on solid ground
Turned my life around
Gave me all this by grace
A free gift
No charge
You just want me
All of me
Every thought
Every action
Every word
For your glory
I thank you Lord
For your mercy
And your grace
On a sinner such as I
I didn’t deserve any of it
‘Yet you loved me anyway
You sought me out
You pulled me out
I’m forever grateful
Forever grateful to you

The Lord is With Me

The Lord is with me
Wherever I go
He is before me and behind me
He is to my right and to my left
He is above me and He guides my steps
If I should turn
He turns with me
And guides me back on the path
If I should stumble
He steadies my feet
And gently holds me up
Even if I fall
He is there to pick me up
And set me on my feet again
And if I tire
He is there to carry me

The Lord is with me
He knows my every thought
Whether good or bad
His Holy Spirit helps me see
When I have not thought right
He guides me to the truth
His wisdom comes from above
He helps me understand
Where I went wrong
Then He gives me His word
Which transforms my mind
So that I might speak with grace
To build up those around me
I listen for His voice
To tell me the words to say
Day in and day out

The Lord is with me
He knows my every deed
He knows when I do good
He knows when I do wrong
He forgives me when I mess up
Then he shows me the right way
The way to ask forgiveness
Of those I may have wronged
He keeps me from being offended
Then I ask forgiveness
When I have wronged others
He shows me the needy
So that I might help them
He shows me the sick
So that I may lay hands on them
Then He will heal them

The Lord is with me
Thus I will praise Him
I will lift my voice
I will raise my hands
I will look for His face
I will sing Hallelujah
Hosanna in the highest
Honor glory and power
To the Lamb upon the throne
Holy is He
High and lifted up
Worthy of my praise
Worthy of all honor
Forevermore
I will praise Him
For the Lord is with me
