You are good 10-26-12

26 Nov

You are good

 

I have sinned against my Lord

Stumbled once again I’m sure

Here I am 

Here I am 

Humbled by your faithful cure

 

I am new

I am new

This is not my life no more

 

Instead I shout

Instead I shout

This is not my cursed route

 

No matter what I do

No matter what I say

You are good

You are good 

And your love remains for me

 

Not relying on my flesh

Not trying by myself

You are good 

You are good

And your death has set me free

 

I have repented to you Lord

Sin no longer keeps me bound

I will change 

I will change 

You have turned my life around

 

I am free

I am free

Sin no longer holds me back

 

Instead I yell

Instead I yell

I am not goin’ to hell

 

No matter what I do

No matter what I say

You are good

You are good 

And your love remains for me

 

Not relying on my flesh

Not trying by myself

You are good 

You are good

And your death has set me free

Intersections 10-22-12

26 Nov

The path of life

Filled with long stretches

Sometimes bring strife

Going over rough patches

 

Life’s road

Filled with waiting

Young yet feeling old

Quenching but never fully sating 

 

Intersections hold the key

That determines our destiny

Intersections provide the chance

To look upon life with a new glance

Intersections forcing a pause

Reevaluating our life’s cause

 

Intersections are my favorite limbo

Like the pause before shooting an arrow

Stretching our lines thin

Building up for the next burst

Then we shoot forward again

With hunger and new thirst

 

I know not what life will bring

I know that life will bring many things

Things that make my heart do sing

Things unknown and unseen

 

 

 

My life is Yours to take and mold

I put all my priorities on hold

Giving all to You as told

Doing that which is bold

 

An intersection lies before me

Filled with uncertainty 

Grant me peace 

If not prosperity

 

An intersection soon to come

I need direction and a guide

Directing me as I am dumb

So I give you the chance to decide 

 

The path lies before me 

Which way shall I go

Different outcomes do I see

Neither one a definite no

Intersections 

 

I see the path the lies beneath

On this road I am bequeath

Weak and Strong 10-17-12

26 Nov

Weak and Strong 

 

I am broken

I have failed.

The future laughs at me

The past mocks me

The present taunts me.

My defenses are destroyed

My stronghold is overrun

 

I am broken

I’m a failure

I am nothing

I’m a loser

 

I give it all away

I give it all away

 

You surround me.

You protect me.

You control my future

You forgive my past

You strengthen me in the present

You reclaim my stronghold

You shore up my defenses

 

You are whole

You’re the successor

You are everything

You’re the victor

 

You take it all away

You take it all away

 

For when I am weak

You are strong

I must be weak

For Your strength to shine bright in me.

Your grace is sufficient for me.

I become weak

So that You are strong

 

I give it all to the one who sets me free

I give it all to the one who restores me

I’m a failure.

Your my success.

 

The day goes on.

The week remains.

I will fail,

But I have hope that You will succeed

 

Eternally Pure 10-15-12

26 Nov

 Eternally pure 

 

Sin finds a way

Temptation creeps in

Adjustment brings temporary solace

But routine amplifies the siren’s singing

 

Temptation abounds

Protection is vital

By humbling myself

I gain armor of stature

 

Even when I fall

I stand once more

Battles fought till the end

Though victor am I

Dirty, filthy, excrement

Sin’s repulsion defined

Yet I am seen as clean

Wash white as snow

 

Even when I am dirty

Even when I am clean

You view me through the blood of the Lamb

So eternal pure am I in Your sight.

Lonely 9-29-12

Lonely

 

Drifter, Outcast, Outsider

I sit here feeling all

Yet I am not alone

Lonely but not forsaken

 

Loneliness is a sad state

Loneliness can cause so much pain

Loneliness brings so much

Loneliness leads to a decision

 

I either wallow in self pity

Or find contentment in my blessings

 

When I am lonely

I am not alone

When I am lonely

I am not alone

 

Constantly trying to be a friend

Yet rarely receiving the same

I sit here not knowing where this leads

Not knowing what will happen next

Content to be here

Lonely but not abandoned

 

Loneliness is a slow state

Loneliness can cause some good

Loneliness brings me closer

Loneliness leads to the next point

 

Here I am lonely 

I am not alone

Here I am lonely

I am not alone

 

Even in this limbo of loneliness

Still I can say it is well with my soul

Even here

I still am not alone

Lonely but not rejected

 

Loneliness is a state of turmoil

Loneliness can cause confusion

Loneliness brings patience

Loneliness leads to growth

 

Even when I am lonely

I am not alone

Even when I am lonely

I am not alone

 

I look back to the past

Recollections of times spent with others

Times spent without feelings of loneliness

I never forget those times

Yet they are gone

Even if they happened only

Yesterday

 

Loneliness is a state quick in coming

Loneliness can cause doubt

Loneliness brings You

Loneliness leads to times of blessing

 

I look back when I was not lonely

I was not alone

Back when I was with others

I was not alone

 

I am here again

Back home

In a state of loneliness

Why does loneliness feel like home?

When did loneliness become my natural state?

 

Loneliness is a state filled with waiting

Loneliness can cause brokenness

Loneliness brings openness

Loneliness leads to submission

 

When I am lonely

I am not alone

When I am lonely

I am not alone
