Not This Time – 1 John 5:4-5

Not This Time – 1 John 5:4-5

I felt them come for me
To take away my freedom
Placing me in the prison of my mind
But they could not win
No, not this time
Because He who is in me is stronger
He who overcome death
Leads me to overcome their words
To rise again like the morning sun
When they surround and I feel empty
And my faith is all I have left
That faith that He within shall overcome
And with faith I fight
And with faith I overcome

1 John 5:4-5

My Smile Will Shine – Lamentations 3:22-24

My Smile Will Shine – Lamentations 3:22-24

A shattered soul
Yet still I fight
A quiet word
At which I cry
A hope in the light
A light that’s mine
And through the tears
My smile will shine
I am not consumed
By their angry words
I rise again
Like a feather on the wind
I trust in Him
Keeper of my heart
And I overcome
What I wait for Him

Only You – Psalm 140:6-7

Only You – Psalm 140:6-7

Part of me wants to run and hide
Part of me wants to stand and fight
Part of me wants to give up the battle
Part of me wants to find peace tonight

Who I am is shattered by their words
Who I am is broken by their anger
Who I am is dying in my truth
Who I am is trying to hold on to You

Maybe I will have nothing to give
Maybe I will cry a thousand tears
Maybe I will pray for my deliverance
Maybe I will just let them win

Only You, my Lord can free me from this prison
Only You can silence their cutting voice
Only You can deliver my broken soul
Only You can bring me back to peace again

Psalm 140:6-7

The Light – John 1:9

The Light – John 1:9

Around me my darkness
Prizes open my scars
Tearing at my soul
Shattering this heart
Yet He is the light
That came into this world
And as this darkness tries to rise
I cling to Him evermore
I long for His heart
To once more beat within mine
For Him to bind up these scars
And set free this soul
So here I look to the light
And cry out His name

Amongst The Shards – Exodus 17:11-12

Amongst The Shards – Exodus 17:11-12

Upon my floor
Are all the broken mirrors
And here I lie
Broken amongst the shards
No longer standing
I have not the strength
My arms are failing
This battle soon to be lost
Oh, here I am
Amongst the shards on this floor
I need their strength
If I am to stand again
I cry to the Lord
As the tears stain my face
This can’t be the end
You promised me so much more
But how can I fight
When my arms I can no longer raise
Here I am
In need of a sign

To raise me from this place
In need of a hand
To lift this spirit high
In need of Your words
To fill this broken heart
In need of Your love
So I can live again
So upon my floor
Are all the broken mirrors
And here I lie
Broken amongst the shards
Will anyone find me?

Exodus 17:11-12

Grateful – Psalm 116:5-9

Grateful – Psalm 116:5-9

Do I always show?
How grateful I am
To the God of all compassion
Do I show my thanks?
For the new life I have found
Maybe I could sing more
Raise greater praise to His name
To let Him know how I feel
Yet times I hide away
Not showing who I truly am
Or who He needs me to be
For He’s the one who saved me
In my trials He protects me
When I stumble He catches me
And the collects all my tears
So how can I tell Him?
Just how much it means
Still He’s deep in my heart
So I’m sure He really knows
But sill I’m going to do my all
To make sure He really knows
Just how much I love Him so

Psalm 116:5-9

Forever Shining – Psalm 97:11-12

Forever Shining – Psalm 97:11-12

There is nothing you can do
To stop it’s coming
It’s there for you
Forever shining
Though our eyes
Don’t always see
And our hearts
Don’t always feel it’s warmth
It’s forever there
The light of Christ, our Lord
So let your heart rejoice
Your voice sing a song of praise
To His Holy name
Giving thanks for the light that shines
There forever on your life
Forever shining

Psalm 97:11-12
