The Believers Life

That Same Tree

I was wandering one day in the forest
When I realized I’d lost my way
As I tried to work out my problem
I came to that same tree again

No matter how long I kept searching
I’d try different paths and ways
But as soon as I found some hope
I came to that same tree again

God has a plan just for me
It’s not always what I can see
When I have doubts
He’ll help me out
Then I’ll be where he wants me to be

My life can be full of problems
And I try to find my own way
But as soon as I get down the road
I come to that same tree again

God has a plan just for me
It’s not always what I can see
When I have doubts
He’ll help me out
Then I’ll be where he wants me to be

Lord, lead the way
Help me to stay
On the path you have laid out for me
Open my ears
So your voice I hear
And I won’t pass that tree again

God has a plan just for me
It’s not always what I can see
When I have doubts
He’ll help me out
Then I’ll be where he wants me to be

Jesus Life

Limitless

This world is full of questions
Asking what this life is for
Why have we been put on earth
What purpose is in store
Some people look for answers
In horoscopes and stars
Some might find a talisman
To find out who they are

There’s really only one true way
To find your destiny
Give your life to Jesus Christ
And He will give you peace
He is the creator
Of everything we see
That is why He is the one
Who knows what you shall be

He has a plan for everyone
No matter what their size
He wants to take you in His arms
And show you what is wise
He wants the best for you each day
His plan is limitless
If you’ll just trust your life to Him
You truly will be blessed

What is Life?

What is life
Why are we here on this earth
An earth filled with strife
An earth filled with fear

What should we do
With this life we’ve been given
With all we’ve been through
While we’ve been living

I cannot answer for you my friend
But I know the answer I found
The definition of why I am here
Is to tell of my Saviors love

When I was lost He called to me
He loved me even in my lost estate
He died on a cross a long time ago
That from my despair I could escape

My life is now centered on Him
I must tell you all that He died for you
There’s no one that He cannot save from their sin
Won’t you accept His great love for you

Cry out to Jesus forgive me my Lord
I give you my sin please save me today
He’ll gather you up in His loving arms
You’ll be His child for all of your days

The Good Life

It’s just a fact of life
We think we know it all
We have it figured out
Why question it at all

After this life’s done
There’s not much more for me
I might as well have fun
For this is all there’ll be

That misses one big question
That can’t escape my mind
Why are we here at all
Why is there a mankind

When I truly think about it
One basic truth comes out
We were put here on this earth
To help one another out

We’re not here for ourselves
How pointless that would be
We’re here to lift each other
And live in harmony

Let’s stop all the confusion
That comes when it’s just me
Let’s put the other first
How good would life then be

Make Me Me

Can you figure it out
Does it make sense to you
That a big band just happened
Right out of the blue

Can something arrive
When nothing is there
Can complex life happen
From cells unaware

I’m bewildered, beffudled
Bewitched by belief
That any of this
Can be real and complete

This world and this space
Is much to complex
To be here by chance
As some would reflect

I will choose creation
By God as the means
That all of life happened
It makes sense to me

For if I’m an ape
As some say I should be
Then where did my purpose
Start out to be
Where did my drive
My ability
My goals and my vision
Make me me

 

In response to the daily prompt Bewildered

The Vine

Lord feed me wisdom
That I might see
All the injustice
That’s all around me
All of the heartache
All of the pain
All of the suffering
All the disdain
Feed me a heart
That will reach out in love
And touch all the broken
So they’ll know your love

Lord feed me courage
That I might know
How to change doubt
Into faith that shows
All of the fear
All of the worry
All of the sorrow
All of the hurry
Feed me the strength
To open their eyes
And lead them to you, Lord
So faith will arise

You are the vine
I am the branch
Fill me with love
Give me a chance
To bear you much fruit
As I follow your plan
Tend to my life
With your loving hand

Feed me compassion
So others  may see
Your love for them, Lord
Through the life that I lead
All of the joy
All of the peace
All of the grace
All the mercy
Feed me with life
In all that I do
So I can successfully
Lead them to you

And all of the fruit I bear dear Lord

I owe it all to you

It is your loving hand that prunes the branch

To make it bear more fruit

So do with me what you will, dear Lord

To shape and mold this branch

No matter the trial or test that comes

My life it will enhance

You are the vine
I am the branch
Fill me with love
Give me a chance
To bear you much fruit
As I follow your plan
Tend to my life
With your loving hand
