Champion

I am not some minor peon.
I am a victorious champion.
My mind is alert and clear.
My ears are ready to hear.
The past no longer has a hold
For I have broken out of the mold.
~
A new, good way is straight ahead,
One that I won’t fear or dread.
I will hold steady
While God’s getting me ready
His comfort I have found
Because His love does abound.
~
I have awakened to the Light
Now I request it burn bright.
No matter the situation or event
Whether lots of energy or spent
During the day or during the night
I will obey and do what’s right.

Heaven Bound

When we have fumbled
and go to Him humbled
He hears our prayer
and our every care.
~
He answers our voice
then we can rejoice
for we are made whole
God’s lifted our soul.
~
No longer do we mourn
or look forlorn
We have no defeat
standing on our feet.
~
With the Lord as our guide
we will not be fried.
We are heaven bound
and that’s a good sound

Quiet Life *1 Thes. 4:9-12

9 Now about your love for one another we do not need to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love each other. 10 And in fact, you do love all of God’s family throughout Macedonia. Yet we urge you, brothers and sisters, to do so more and more, 11 and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, 12 so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.

Lord, help us to love one another more and more. And to lead a quiet life; minding our own business and to work with our hands, just as the Bible says, so that our daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that we would not be dependent on anybody. In Jesus Name. Amen. (1 Thes. 4:9-12 prayer)

Troubled Heart

I came to God with trouble in my heart
As usual, He gave me a brand new start
Him I did implore
Now I can go through the door
I am no longer stuck
In the yucky muck
My needs have been met
Only He can set
Me free from whatever ails
His love and care never fails
What a gracious God we serve
He always gives us the nerve
To do what needs to be done
We can do it in the Name of the Son
I will not hesitate
to say, “God is great!”

Come

Thank you Lord
When I’m sad or blue
I can come to You
When I feel there’s a block
I can just come and talk
I can tell You what’s bothering me
as far as I can tell and see
I don’t need to focus on my flaws
You are more concerned about the cause
You look much deeper within
You see us and grin
You are the One who gives rest
From the one who is more than a pest
Thank you Lord again for this day
You’re the One empowering me on my way

Past

The worst has passed
and this too shall not last.
I have much to gain
getting over grief and pain.
It was tough going
through the not knowing,
But the Lord held me tight
all through the night.
Through thick and thin
He enables me to win.
With the Lord at my side
I won’t tremble and hide.
No longer am I cold
for now I am bold.
I have found
if I hold my ground
demons have to flee
because of the Almighty.
