I Chose Jesus

When I was young I made a lot of choices
Some good, some bad and some fell in between
I really didn’t know
Which way that I should go
I wandered through my life quite aimlessly

Through drugs and alcohol my journey took me
Wild women and a lot of lonely nights
I couldn’t find my way
Sank lower every day
Until I couldn’t see the dark from light

Then an old friend invited me to visit
Across the country travelling I went
It’s then I met his friend
On whom he did depend
I made a choice that’s been mine ever since

I chose Jesus
From a missionaries’ words
I chose Jesus
He convinced me I was lost
I chose Jesus
I had no desire to live my life that way
I chose Jesus
He has filled me with His love
I chose Jesus
His sweet spirit leads the way
I chose Jesus
Now I choose Him each and every day

Now I have a wife and family beside me
Many friends encourage me along the way
With Jesus as my choice
He is my inner voice
I strive to take in very word He says

I choose Jesus
As the one that I will love
I choose Jesus
He will guide me from above
I choose Jesus
I will follow Him wherever He may lead
I choose Jesus
Won’t you come along with me
I choose Jesus
Make Him the one you seek
I choose Jesus
He will fill all your desires and your needs

Today and Tomorrow

The past is the past
It is gone
Over with
What has been done is done
And can’t be undone
Can’t be redone
What has been said has been
And can not be been back
We can not change
The past
We can not go back
And do it over
We can not escape it

But we can overcome it
Wipe out any negative effects
Rise above any wrongdoings
Become better because of it
We can
Make it disappear
And no longer be a conduit
For doubt
Or fear
Or worry
Or misgivings
We can
Let it go
To embrace the only thing we have
And tomorrow

God says
He will wipe away our sins
And wash them white as snow
He will remove our sin
As far as the East is from m the West
They no longer have a hold on me
They no longer control me
I look to the only thing I have
And tomorrow

Rise up
Start over
Let your life shine
Let your voice be heard
Be free from your past
Live the life you were meant to live
And tomorrow
