Do I Sow – Galatians 6:7-8

Do I Sow – Galatians 6:7-8

Do I sow lies?
Expecting to reap truth
Do I sow destruction
Expecting to gather life
Or do I sow anger
Expecting to receive love
Yet I should sow to please the spirit
To receive eternal life

Galatians 6:7-8

Galatians 6:7-8

Lose Ourselves – 1 Thessalonians 4:4-5

Lose Ourselves – 1 Thessalonians 4:4-5

Do we lose ourselves?
To the desires
Of this corrupted world
Letting the flesh sin
With our wrongful lust

Or do we give ourselves?
To the One who died for us
Whose body holy and honourable
Took the scars of our sin
To wash our flesh clean

1 Thessalonians 4:4-5

These Bones Shiver – Romans 6:11-14

These Bones Shiver – Romans 6:11-14

These bones shiver
Beneath it’s pull
As fingernails stripped
The skin from the bones
A mind rang
With voices of desire
As the bottle stood waiting
So weak a spirit
No resistance to give
Addiction led to sin
And all to near death
Until the Lord’s voice
Rang true within the mind
The bottle lost it’s pull
To a new spirit within
To fight the sin of the past
Resisting the sin of tomorrow
The bottle was smashed
Long ago
When a new being rose again
His grace runs through my all
As I died to myself
Sacrificed with my Christ
So in mercy I could rise again
No longer these bones shiver
I am alive
In my Christ
My strength
All wrapped up in Him

Romans 6:11-14

My Song – Psalm 33:1-3

My Song – Psalm 33:1-3

I wish I could play piano
Sometimes I wish I could play guitar
Or write the notes down
To the music of my heart
To put a rhythm to the words I write
I guess these are my songs
This is what my heart sings
These are the words of my praise
I lift up to my Lord
Maybe someday they will become a song
But just for now I’ll record them this way
Here is my praise and my love
All mixed up with my fear and my hope
They make up the words
That my heart is singing
Out to my Lord
The One who loves

Psalm 33:1-3

The Way – Romans 12:2

The Way – Romans 12:2

I see the way
They carry their darkness
I see the way
They embrace it’s worth

I once walked
In the ways of this world
I once walked
Into the shadows of their ways

But He came
And He showed me new life
He came
And He showed me His ways

Now my ways
Do not conform to theirs
Now my ways
Are to follow the steps of the Lord

Romans 12:2

What Is It – Proverbs 3:3-4

What Is It – Proverbs 3:3-4

What is it I hold within these hands?
What is it I carry in my walk?
What do I truly let weigh me down?
What do I let guide my feelings?
When love is what I am supposed to carry
When faithfulness should be my way
When what I carry should lift me up
When His faith and love should be my guide
So what is it I am going to do today?
What is it that I’m going to carry?
What is it that I will let guide my feelings?
And what is it I am going to see before me?

Proverbs 3:3-4

The Message – Luke 2:10-11

The Message – Luke 2:10-11

Do you remember this message
Do you recall it’s meaning
It’s not just for one day a year
It’s for every day of you live
He was born unto the world
To bring true love to all life
To bring light where there is dark
To release the captive from their chains
So remember this today
Remember this as you face tomorrow
Christ was born to this world for you
To be the light within your life

Luke 2:10-11
