A Long Way To Go

 I don’t understand your mercy that wipes away all my sin
 I don’t understand your marvelous grace that blesses me once again
 I don’t understand the peace that instills a calm within my soul
 I don’t understand the joy overflowing when sorrow tries to take hold
 I have a long way to go but I know how to get there
 I’m trusting you all the way
 Day by day you will show me the road I should travel
 There is no other way
 I’m falling in love with you more all the time
 I just want to see your face
 So I will praise you.  I will praise you.
 I don’t understand this hope that arises when darkness is all I see
 I don’t understand why you give me wisdom when I act so foolishly
 I don’t understand the way that your light reveals all my deepest shame
 I don’t understand your love for me before I knew your name
 I have a long way to go but I know how to get there
 Your Spirit dwells in my heart
 There is no other one who can light up my path
 Reveling to me my part
 Every day I desire to do your will more than the day before
 My one desire  is to see your face
 So I will praise you.  I will praise you
 Down on my knees, my face in my hands
 I humbly bow down at your throne
 Lord hear my cry, hear my plea
 I’m begging you please hear my cry
 I love you Lord.  I love you Lord 

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.

I Can Trust In Your Love

In the Still of the Night
You are there by my side
And I know I can trust in your love

At the dawn of the day
You provide me a way
Then I know I can trust in your love

As the Sun rises high
You will strengthen my life
So I know I can trust in your love

When the sun paints the sky
And the day has gone by
I have known I can trust in your love

There’s never am hour
When I don’t need your power
For I know who I can trust in your love

Keep me close by your side
For in you I’ll abide
There I know I can trust your love

I know there are times that I don’t love Him like I should. After all, He gave up a throne in heaven to come to earth as a babe because He loved me. He walked all over the nation of Israel, healing and preaching about the ways of our Father in heaven because He loved me. He took the ridicule and harassment of the religious leaders because He loved me. He was beaten and laughed at, mocked and ridiculed. He carried His own cross on which He was crucified because He loved me. He took the nails in His hands and feet and He cried out Father forgive them because He loved me. He rose again and sent the Holy Spirit Comforter to help me because He loved me?

And what do I do? How much time do I spend with Him each day. Every day he reminds me of His love for me by appearing in the little things, in nature all around me, in the people I meet and talk to. Every moment He is giving me breath and sight, hearing and taste and so many other things I do not deserve. And he will always do that because He loves me.

Romans 8:32-39 King James Version (KJV)
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


I Feel Victory

Whatever the enemy puts in my way
I’ll never surrender
For my God will prosper
No storm or temptation can lead me astray
He is my defender
My Lord and my Savior

In every battle I’ll feel no alarm
I’ll trust in Him
Through every storm
With Him by my side I cannot be harmed
I know He’s beside me
His armor I’ve worn

I feel victory
By His righteous hand
I feel victory
Not by my might
Or power in me
But by the Spirit I can walk free

Now I am climbing higher each day
He holds my hand
He shows me the way
Soon He is coming down from above
I can’t wait to see Him
Since I’m in His love

I feel victory
By His righteous hand
I feel victory
Not by my might
Or power in me
But by the Spirit I can walk free

Trust in God

I Will Trust You

When times get hard
And I see no end
To the test I’m in
I will trust you

When joy is gone
And my sorrow grows
It is then I know
I will trust you

When my health is poor
And I feel so sick
My heart faints within
I will trust you

When my finances
Are so steeped with debt
I can’t seem to win
I will trust you

When I stand for you
And my friends are gone
When I’m all alone
I will trust you

You have always been there
Always cared
Always done what’s best for me
Even when I cannot see
Your grace always wins
Your love just begins
To ease my suffering
It is then I know
I can trust you
