Jesus Life

I Remember the Cross

There are times that I get hurt by those around me
They do something that I don’t really like
I’ll fuss and moan about offenses given
And I’ll hold my anger right ion through the night

I don’t feel any better
In fact I feel much worse
This feeling that’s inside of me
Can soon become a curse
Somehow I must release it
I search for ways to cope
And then I look to Jesus
That’s where I find my hope

I remember the cross
And the price that He paid
To purchase my salvation
To show me heaven’s way
He said I am forgiven
Now I must pass it on
Forgiving those who hurt me
Forgiving everyone

Now each time someone might say something offensive
Or do something that hurts down in my soul
Right there and then I pray and I forgive them
There’s none of that offense that I will hold

Forgiveness I will give
Forgiveness I will live
I’ll put aside offenses
I’ll live a life of love
For Jesus paid the price
And He’s forgiven me
I’ll practice that forgiveness
So others will be free

I remember the cross
And the price that He paid
To purchase my salvation
To show me heaven’s way
He said I am forgiven
Now I must pass it on
Forgiving those who hurt me
Forgiving everyone

God's Provision

More Than Able

Oh Lord, My God
I worship you because you are more than able
When my finances run dry,
My cupboards are bear,
And the bills are due
You are more than able to provide
In some way things will get taken care of
You will send someone
Or simply have someone mail a check
Or wire help to me
Because you love me
And I have followed your way

When I am sick
My body in pain
No energy to do daily tasks
You are more than able to heal me
Give me strength again
Take away all the pain
Whether through doctors or a miracle
I know it’s your hand that heals me
Because you love me
And I have followed your way

When the enemy comes in
And torments my mind
Luring me away from your word
Away from your way
Enticing me with his words of pleasure
And earthly treasures
You are more than able to deliver me
Keep me safe
Guide me back to your path
So I will again hear your voice
And run from the enemy
Because you love me
And I have followed your way

When I am alone
My friends have turned their backs on me
They speak evil of me
They only want me out of their lives
Not from anything I have done
Except kept your word
And shared your love
You are more than able
To comfort me
And walk with me through the hard times
You protect me from slander
And bring me close to your side
Because you love me
And I have followed your way

When I have sinned
And done what was not right in your eyes
I feel overwhelmed with grief
Because it hurts you
When I stray from the truth
I feel distant from you
I fall on my knees
Repent
And ask you to forgive me
You are more than able
And more than willing
To forgive me
To wash me white as snow
To remove my sin
As far as the East is from the West
Because you love me
And I have followed your way

Oh Lord My God
I worship you because you are more than able
In every storm
In every trial
In every sickness
In every heartache
In every need
In every mess up I may have
You are there
You are more than able to bring me back
To your side

Time to Remember

It’s time to remember
What Christ has done for us
When He came down from heaven
To die upon that cross
Too often we forget
The price He paid for us
It’s time to remember
What Christ has done for us

He left His royal throne
To be a mortal man
Leaving all His majesty behind
He left the angels worship
He left His Father’s side
To come to this world and be despised

He walked on this earth
And spoke the truth in love
But leaders of the day all sought His death
Miracles and wonders
Were everywhere He went
Yet They hated Him with fury in their breath

They brought Him to trial
In the middle of the night
They broke their own laws on that fateful night
Accusing Him of blasphemy
Condemning Him to die
They had the trial until the break of light

They beat Him and mocked Him
Then another court was held
This time with more hatred than before
Pilate had Him beaten
His wounds were open wide
His blood was seen by all the watching hoard

They placed a crown of thorns
Upon His weary head
The sharp ends cut into His naked brow
Then they put a robe upon Him
And beat Him with their fists
Before Him they would mock Him as they bowed

They lead Him to Golgotha
His own cross He did bear
He struggled up the hill without a sound
They took the rugged cross
From off His blood-streaked back
And laid Him down upon it on the ground

They took the long hard spikes
And ran them through His hands
Stretched out on the cross that fateful day
They folded up His feet
Then ran a spike through them
Then they dropped the cross down in the hole they’d made

Six agonizing hours
The crowd watched all the while
The sky was darkened from the time of noon
Finally he breathed His last
But not before these words
Forgive them for they know not what they do

These words have passed through time
To every one of us
For Jesus has forgiven every sin
Take time to remember
The price He paid for us
To give each one of us true peace within

Jesus Life

Forgive Them

Has someone said some words
That are absurd and caused deep hurt
They have sent you reeling
Hurt your feelings
Now you’re dealing with these thoughts
They have wrought
In your heart
Forgive them, for they know not what they do

Has someone done something
That starts to ring and leaves a sting
To your pride
Down deep inside
You try to hide and want payback
Except you lack
A plan of attack
Forgive them, for they know not what they do

Have people whipped you hard
Beaten with a rod for who you are
Put thorns on your head
Falsely accused and led
To death
Upon a cross crucified
Left to die
Forgive them, for they know not what they do

We do not have
A life that is so bad
Yet we complain
Of the pain
That others cause us
And we discuss
Those things that sting
With those who can do nothing
To fix the pain
And we disdain
From what God said
In His word
Forgive them, for they know not what they do

The next time you feel hurt
Become the person God intended
Bring an end to any strife
Give out life
As you forgive them
For they know not what they do

Our Salvation

White as Snow

I’ve made a lot of messes in my day
I’ve spilled a lot of stuff
That caused some massive stains
Industrial strength cleaner
Was the only way
To clean up all the messes I have made

But there is one mess that I cannot touch
No cleaner in this world
Can cleanse this stain enough
It is the sin stain that is left
Upon my heart
Whenever I far away from God

However there is one way that I know
To take this sin stain out
And make it white as snow
The blood of Jesus Christ was shed
To cleanse my soul
He takes my sin stains out and makes me whole

Today if you are wallowing in sin
All you have to do is ask
And Jesus will forgive
Don’t let the sin stain in your life
Remain within
Give up your sin today and ask Him in

Through the Muck

It’s easy to be calm and cool when things are going right
My mind seems so much clearer and my outlook seems so bright
Every thought and every action comes out shining in the light
My day becomes a breeze that soothes my soul

I’m glad that I can say this verse describes most of my days
There is no sign of conniption as I go about my ways
When offenses come against me I just do what Jesus says
Shake the dust off of my feet when tales are told

When we follow Jesus there’s no place to hold a grudge
Forgiveness should be foremost as through the muck we trudge
We should never think we have a right to be another‘s judge
Just take the high road when the gossip rolls

Keep your mind on things that bring good thoughts and stay away from bad
Do not say a word that hurts someone but strive to make them glad
When trouble comes about you keep yourself cool and relaxed
No worry should prevent you from this goal

On My Knees

Praise the Lord
Worthy is He
I come before Him
Down on my knees
Seeking His mercy
Longing for grace
Hoping that soon
I’ll see His face

Jesus my Savior
You’re me redeemer
Lamb of God died for the sins of the world
Rose again bringing
Eternal Life to me
Sending your Spirit to reveal the Word

Praise the Lord
Glorious in splendor
Worship His holiness
Forevermore
Seated in heaven
All creatures before Him
Bowing their heads
Falling down on their knees

Jesus my Savior
You’re me redeemer
Lamb of God died for the sins of the world
Rose again bringing
Eternal Life to me
Sending your Spirit to reveal the Word

Down on my knees
I sing hallelujah
Down on my knees
My head bowed down low
Broken before Him
Needing forgiveness
Worthy of nothing
Have mercy on me
