Unite My Heart

My heart is divided, Lord
I am undone
I know that I’ve failed you
This cannot go on
When my fear of you falters
The enemy’s won
Lord, please unite my heart
 
One side wants to serve you
Giving you praise
My fleshly heart falters
And wanders away
All this division
Keeps me in a daze
Lord, please unite my heart
 
CHORUS
When I put it together you can use me.  Use me.
When I no longer wander from your presence. Your presence
There is nothing I can’t do
That you have called me to
You will hear me when I pray
I will hear the words you say
I’ll no longer walk away from you,
Oh Lord, my God
 
My heart is wide open
Come to me now
I need your forgiveness
Please touch me now
Only by your mercy’
Only by your grace
Lord, please unite my heart
 
CHORUS
 
One side wants to praise you
The other wants to sin
One side wants forgiveness
The other lies again
One side wants your mercy
Implores to find your grace
Come and turn my fleshly heart
To give you all the praise
 
CHORUS

Mercy Greater Than My Sin

All around me people worship
Giving praise to God above
Filled with joy they lift their voices
Celebrating His great love
 
I can’t help but join the chorus
Lifting hands I humbly sing
He has given me such mercy
Mercy greater than my sin
 
In my deepest, darkest caverns
Down below this mask I wear
I am drowning in my weakness
With a test that I still bare
 
I know that I should walk away
From all the devil’s schemes
Every day he comes alongside
Robbing all my righteous dreams
 
Every word of praise I’m singing
Works to drown his dreadful voice
Still I find my flesh is weakened
Even though my soul rejoiced
 
God of heaven, Lord of mercy
Take away this heart of stone
Fill me with desire that’s burning
Set my mind on you alone
 
Again I raise my soul to praise Him
He has made me pure within
I will be forever grateful
Mercy greater than my sin

I’m Done

I’m done with this sin that creeps up every day
I’m done with a lifestyle that just brings me shame
I’m done with these thoughts that so quickly betray
I’m done running from my Lord

I’m done doing things that I cannot eras’
I’m done playing games that defy His grace
I’m done having eyes that can’t look in His face
I’m done running from my Lord

I’m heading back to my Father’s house
He will make me whole and remove all doubt
I know He loves me and when I repent
He makes me into a new man again

I’m done giving time to the enemies whims
I’m done with defeat as I kneel close to Him
I’m done keeping quiet about my best friend
I’m going to run back to my Lord

This is the day the Lord has made
I will rejoice and be glad in it
For He has destroyed the enemies hold
Victory is now in my grip.

It’s been long enough, too long in fact. I have been hiding behind a façade thinking no one will know. No one will know the things I do when no one is around. No one knows the crazy mixed up thoughts I have when I am trying to focus on Him. The enemy works hard to get me to take time away from God, and he succeeds way too often. He captures my mind and takes me far away to a place I know I should not be. I cry out to God in the midst of my struggle and he hears me. But the enemy keeps atm it, saying I will return even if I give up now. He most often convinces me so I don’t fully repent.

Not this time. This time I’m done. I’m done playing games. I want all that God has for me and the only way that will happen is if I give my all to Him. If I throw away my sin and take on His armor, He will keep me safe. He will keep me from harm. He will deliver me from the depths, wipe off the miry clay and make me whole again. I need to be made a new creation again. Lord, shape me and mold me into the vessel you desire

.
Jeremiah 18:6 King James Version (KJV)
6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.

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.

More Than Faithful

If the waves should start crashing around me
And the Stars would fall down from the sky
I would still look my hands and praise thee
For you are the one who gives life

If my friends should all decide to leave me
And my body would be filled with pain
I will still lift my voice to praise thee
Or you will restore me again

You are more than faithful to me
By your grace you have forgiven me
When life is a mess
And I’m filled with stress
Your mercy is all that I need

If I find myself down on my knees
Crying out “Oh Lord How can this be?”
I know you will hear my heart’s cry
You are more than faithful to me

In all my trials
In all my tests
In all my anguish
In you I can rest
In every sorrow
You are my joy
Your faithfulness
Relieves my soul

You are more than faithful to me
By your grace you have forgiven me
When life is a mess
And I’m filled with stress
Your mercy is all that I need

Follow Jesus

I have decided
To put my sin behind
To clean this filthy mind
Let light remove the blinds
And follow Jesus

I have determined
My path has gone astray
That I have lost my way
Please turn me back today
And follow Jesus

He is the way the truth the light
His is the only way that’s right
He’ll turn my darkness into light
Jesus only Jesus

Mercy is All I Need

Lord how I need to cry out to you
In the middle of my distress
I cannot find rest
In the midst of this mess
Your mercy all that I need

Lord I have walked away from you
I cannot find peace for my soul
I’m desperate for you
Don’t know what I should do
Your mercy is all I need

Mercy is all I need
Mercy is all I need
My soul’s in your hands
Only you understand
The depth of the mercy I need

Then I hear your sweet voice calling out to me
Saying son I’ve forgiven your sins
Don’t give them a thought
Just turn and walk
Follow the path where I lead

I do not hold them against you
I do not tell them again
I do not see your sins anymore
To me you are sin free and clean

Mercy is all I need
Mercy is all I need
My soul’s in your hands
Only you understand
The depth of the mercy I need

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

Effective Prayer

I Come To You

My days are filled with great temptation
Sometimes I can’t resist
My flesh is weak
Your grace I seek
Out of despair I come to you

I don’t deserve to feel your presence
Yet every day your Spirit comes
You help me see
What I might be
If I will only come to you

I come to you to plead for mercy
I come to you to feel your love
I come to you seeking forgiveness
With all my heart I come to you

Down on my knees I plead for healing
My tears of sorrow touch the ground
My heart is spent
As I repent
My soul rejoices as I come to you

I come to you to plead for mercy
I come to you to feel your love
I come to you seeking forgiveness
With all my heart I come to you

I need your strength
I need your power
I need your joy
I need your peace
I need your love
I need your Spirit
All these will come when I come to you

I come to you to plead for mercy
I come to you to feel your love
I come to you seeking forgiveness
With all my heart I come to you

What A Savior, What a Friend

Forgiven
Set free
That’s what Jesus did for me
I was lost in sin
No peace within
When Jesus rescued me

In darkness
Was my life
Then He showed me the light
Now He guides me
Satisfies me
Turns away my darkest night

What a Savior
What a friend
I will praise Him once again
I will lift His name on high
He is worthy glorified
What a Savior
What a friend
Jesus
