Restored

I am down on my knees
Here at your feet
Bringing my plea
Lord, help me please
I don’t know where to go
I don’t know what to do
I’ve fallen down once again
Restore me as I repent

I know you are faithful
You will hear my cry
You’ll grant your forgiveness
Your mercy applied
Then by your grace
I will look on your face
I’ll lift up my praise
Restored once again

I am so glad for His word because in it are contained so many promises that I can call upon in my day of trouble. I seem to walk into trouble way too often. I give in to the temptations in my life and feel ashamed that I was not strong enough. It is a battle that goes on between my flesh and my spirit all the time. I always pray that my spirit will win, but I am not always successful. When I fail Him, I just want to run away and hide. I don’t want Him to know and yet He already knows. He knows my strengths and weaknesses. He knows my trials and temptations. He knows where I struggle and what triggers those battles. He knows everything about me, more than I know my self. He knows all things and I cannot escape Him.

His word says He is faithful. He is always with me. He will heal me like He did the woman with the issue of blood. He will deliver me like He did the demonic man of the Gadarenes. He will forgive me like He did the woman taken in adultery. He will provide for me as He did for the five thousand. He will challenge me as He did Peter. He will change my direction as He did with Saul. He will answer my prayer. He has already taken my sin and provided that healing. All I need to do is go to Him in prayer. Then He will answer.

John 15:7
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

You Amaze Me

Out of the ashes. Out of the night
Out of the darkness. I come to you

Out of my sin. Out of my pain
Out of my weakness. I come to you

CHORUS
You wait for me to come to you
I stand amazed at your great love
You died for me when I was lost
What a gracious God you are
What a gracious God you are

Into your presence. Into your light
Into your Spirit. I come to you

CHORUS

BRIDGE
You amaze me
You amaze me
You amaze me by your mercy Lord (REPEAT)

CHORUS

The Believers Life

Alive Again

Who am I Lord
A sinful man
Lost in my own ways
Trying to find a way
To make life right
To feel I’m worth something
To someone
Anyone
Does anyone see me
Or hear me
Or even care I’m alive
Here in this flesh
Walking down this road
The wide road
The wrong road
Lost
Confused
Shattered by life
Crying for help
Looking anywhere I can
Drugs are not the answer
Neither is alcohol
Sex is not even close
Money comforts
But does not bring peace
Power is exhilarating
But is fleeting and empty
Fame only lasts for a moment
Like a vapor in the wind
All of life’s pleasures
Bring no joy that lasts
But only sorrow
Heartache
Solitude
And I despair in my condition
I am not sure of the way out
I do not know where to go next
Everyone looks at me and sees success
They see happy
They see what I want them to see
But it’s only an image
A projection
Of the external man
Not the internal man
Oh, wretched man that I am
Who will save me
Who will rescue me

Then
In an instant
In an unanticipated moment
Jesus whispers into my ear
With words of peace
Words of joy
Words of a refuge
Safe in His arms
And I weep
My heart breaks
My spirit collapses
My mind is fixed
On His words
I cannot deny them
I cannot refuse them
So I ask Him to forgive me
For my sin
My arrogance
My wandering heart
My sinful ways
Surprisingly to me
He does
A wave of freedom flows over me
I can feel the filthiness leave
I can feel His Spirit enter in
There is no doubt
No way to undo
What he has just done
He has washed my win away
Like a tide washes the shore
Like the light dispels darkness

I am a new man
A new creation
Walking the narrow path
Walking with Him
Blessed by his Spirit
No longer alone
No longer in despair
But filled with joy
Peace
Hope and His love
Oh what a Savior
Jesus my Lord
Lamb of God
Wonder of wonders
He has done what I could not do
He has done what no one else could do
He has done what this world cannot d0
He changed my course
From hell to heaven
In the blink of an eye
I am saved
Forgiven
Washed by the blood
Redeemed from my sin
Forever forgiven
Alive again!

Mercy Never Gives Up

I’m not sure why you put up with me
I am not always following you
I turn to the left
Or I turn to the right
I’m ashamed of the things that I do

Yet in the midst of my wandering
Your Spirit still seems to work
He straightens my steps
Puts me back on the path
So I’m running right back to you

Your mercy never gives up on me
Never rests on my behalf
I know I can trust
In your wonderful love
To draw me closer to you

Forgive me Lord my transgression
Help me move past all of my sin
My desire is for you
For your love is true
And your mercy never gives up

Press On

You may have stumbled and fallen
In your life today
But the Spirit would say press on
You may have troubles and trials
That will not go away
But the Spirit would say press on
You may think what you’ve done
Is a sin far to great
Bu the Spirit would say press on
You may think that you’ve failed’
And now it’s too late
But the Spirit would say press on

Press on toward the mark
Press on toward the goal
Jesus is waiting for you
He is not concerned
By things covered with blood
He only wants you to press on

If you doubt you are saved
But you’ve confessed His name
Then the Spirit would say press on
The enemy will try
To deny His sweet name
But the Spirit would say press on

Nothing can be done about what has been done
But something can be done about what will be done
Nothing can be done about what has been done
But something can be done about what will be done

Press on toward the mark
Press on toward the goal
Jesus is waiting for you
He is not concerned
By things covered with blood
He only wants you to press on

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
