That Wand’ring Spirit

There are times that I get caught up in the battle
My enemies will come to taunt and shout
It seems my situation will defeat me
And all that taunting starts to grow my doubt

Then I hear a voice so gently come and whisper
It’s the voice of my dear Savior calling me
My son do not be troubled by the trial
It’s there to make you all that you can be

I let this trial come so you would trust me
No matter what the circumstances bring
If you will just determine to go through it
You’ll find that soon your soul will dance and sing

I’ll give you strength to hold up under pressure
I’ll give you hope to come and light the way
I’ll give you joy and peace to calm your spirit
And you will see the victory one day

I slowly heard the voice of doubt go weaker
The taunting want it’s evil way as well
The only voice I heard no was my Savior
Guiding me out of that wand’ring spell

The trouble quickly faded into nothing
As I determined I would trust His word
I knew that I had grown a little stronger
The next storm would not throw as much a curve

He gave me strength to hold up under pressure
He gave me hope to come and light the way
He gave me joy and peace to calm my spirit
I now I see the victory today

Sweet Victory

We were not born for heartache
We were not born for pain
We were not born for suffering
We were not born for shame

We were not born for trials
We were not born for doom
We were not born for sorrow
We were born to overcome

Through all our disappointments
Through all of life’s hard tests
There’s someone walking with us
Who always wants our best

Jesus is our Champion
Our mighty victor strong
When He lives within us
We sing His victory song

I’m an overcomer
Through Jesus precious blood
No matter what I’m facing
His mercy is enough

He’ll walk me through the valleys
He’ll guide me day and night
When life is at its darkest
He’ll lead me to the light

I was born for victory
I was born to win
I was born to overcome
This flesh that lives within

I was born for Jesus
As He was born for me
From now on I will walk
In His sweet victory.

Defeating Every Enemy

The gladiator stands his ground
Defeating all who come around
He roars a valiant vict’ry sound
The champion of all

The colosseum stands and cheers
The gladiator proudly hears
He pounds his chest and shows no fear
He stands both proud and tall

There was one man who came before
The gladiator took the floor
He came to open different doors
A meek and mild man

The crowd did cheer to have him die
They shouted out to crucify
The devil laughed an evil cry
And made his final stand

He struck the man with whips of stone
The bruises bashed right to the bone
A crown of thorns denounced his throne
He gave himself away

Up on a cross them hung him high
Nails in His hands and feet applied
A spear pierced through his fleshly thigh
He spoke that he forgave

They laid him in a borrowed tomb
The sealed it shut with stone of doom
The guards did watch all night of gloom
To ensure no escape

But when the stone did roll away
He rose again a victor great
The greatest champion was raised
From death He had escaped

Alive forevermore is He
Defeating every enemy
Providing grace and His mercy
To all who trust in Him

To all who would just call His name
Jesus will come and freedom claim
For you today, just give Him Praise
For in Him we all win

Only a Mask

He is so honest
He is so true
He is so righteous
He’s never blue
He is so loyal
Trustworthy too
He’s just as good as can be

This is a faceless man you see
Trying so hard to make them believe
All of the good things he can be
But all of it’s only a mask

Inside he’s hurting
Inside he’s worn
Inside he’s lusting
Inside he’s torn
Inside he’s wishing
He’d never been born
He’s really not what he seems

I know this guy because He was me
I was the guy who seemed so complete
I was just drifting away to sea
Wondering where I would land

Then I found Jesus
I found new life
Then I found mercy
God reconciled
Joy fills my days now
Peace is all mine
Born again only by grace

Praise Rises Up

I can feel a praise is rising up
When I think about what Jesus did for me
He captured victory
From the hand of sure defeat
His sacrifice became what set me free

The praise within me bubbles to the top
As the story has an ending full of hope
He was buried since He died
In three days from death He’d rise
He returned to heaven which I can now call home

Praise Rises Up
Within my Spirit man
My voice lifts high His name
As I praise the Lord again
Worthy are you Lord
Of the praises of my heart
I’ll sing my Hallelujahs
To your name

I can’t contain the joy He brings
That’s why my mouth must shout and sing
He’s worthy of my praise
I’ll lift His name all day
An offering of praise I humbly bring

Praise Rises Up
When I think of what He did
He gave His life for me
In freedom I can live
Worthy are you Lord
Of the praises of my heart
I’ll sing my hallelujahs
To your name

The wonderful name of Jesus
The matchless name of Jesus
The merciful name of Jesus
The precious name of Jesus
The delivering name of Jesus
The providing name of Jesus
The marvelous name of Jesus
No other name like His

Praise Rises Up
Within me every day
When I think about His love
And the price He had to pay
Worthy are you Lord
Of the praises of my heart
I’ll sing my hallelujahs
To your name

Lord of All

If you will put your trust in Him
The one who saved you from your sin
The one who died upon that cross
Jesus, Lord of all

Then He will wipe away your tears
You’ll conquer doubt, you’ll conquer fear
Because His strength will pull you through
Jesus, Lord of all

There s no mystery to this
He conquered death so we could live
His Spirit lives within us now
Jesus, Lord of all

I will lift my voice n praise
To the one who my life saved
Gives me victory each day
Jesus, Lord of all

 

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Conquer

He Overcame

He overcame sickness
So I could be healed
The stripes on His back paid the price
He overcame sorrow
So I could have joy
His suff’ring would more than suffice

He overcame turmoil
So I could have peace
More peace than the world ever knew
He overcame doubt
So I could have faith
I can trust that His word will be true

By the stripes on His back He is victorious
By the thorns in His brow He is glorious
By the nails in His hands
He became Christ the Lamb
He has overcome for all of us

He overcame fear
So that I could have hope
My eternal home was secured
He overcame hate
And gave me His love
A love that is faithful and sure

He’s laid up a crown for me
Heaven’s my destiny
I’ll soon be with Him up there
But until that day
He’s made a way
For me to have victory

By the stripes on His back He’s victorious
By the thorns in His brow He is glorious
By the nails in His hands
He became Christ the Lamb
He has overcome for all of us
 
 
 

We Win!

The stage was set just perfect
For Satan and his crew
Jesus they were going to crucify
Satan thought he’d pillage
Peace and joy and hope
From all who thought this Jesus brought them life

He used the guards to thrash Christ
Then they nailed Him to that tree
He died and then was burred in the tomb
Satan danced in victory
He thought the battle won
The Son of God was dead, and not too soon
Suddenly Christ then appeared
And took the keys of hell
Satan’s power was pillaged from within
Jesus Christ defeated death
He lives forevermore
He made the way for all of us to win
