Condemnation – 1 John 3:20

Condemnation – 1 John 3:20

My heart, my soul, my mind
All condemn
Throwing me down
Onto the floor
And as the tears flow
I hear His voice

I am greater
Than all you face
Trust in me
We’ll make it through

And all the fear
Behind my condemnation
Just fades away
And I stand once again

Burning Heart – 1 John 3:20

Burning Heart – 1 John 3:20

Feeling the burn
Of a heart
In all it’s brokenness
I feel it’s condemnation
For all my acts
That split it in two
Causing the pain to spread
Deep into my soul
But my Father
He says let go
Don’t let it grow
For He is greater than my heart
In His hands
Is my healing
In His voice
The words to lead my way
My Father knows all
My beginning to my end
The pain of this heart
Won’t burn forever
He shows me a time to come
Where a veil of peace
Will cloak my heart
To extinguish the fire
Of the pain of acts past
And love will thrive
For He is great
And love shall
Conquer all

Condemned Heart

Condemned Heart (1 John 3:20)

When the heart condemns
And this body shakes
To the rhythm of dark thoughts
A soul cannot comprehend

It’s my heart
It’s tattered
It’s torn
It’s ragged
It’s frayed
It’s me

The condemnation of my heart
Is like a prisoner of my mind
Rattling chains of captivity
Until it wakes the whole world

It’s my heart
It’s hurt
It’s bleeding
It’s broken
It’s pain
It’s me

And even though this heart condemns
It doesn’t mean I’m bound to fall
I may be down upon my knees
So let the prisoner inside cry

It’s my heart
It’s empty
It’s weak
It’s distant
It’s cold
It’s me

And when my broken hallelujah
Reaches the edge of my lips
Then this heart is restored
By the Holy Father’s love

It’s my heart
It’s renewed
It’s bound
It’s beating
It’s rebuilt
It’s me

NOTE:
My heart once more tried to condemn me earlier today, but as I stood there beginning to drift into bad memories, my mind switched to these words that I had written earlier in the morning, immediately my mind snapped out of it and I found the heart to worship.

1 John 3:20

There are so many times that my heart condemns me, I’m thankful I can turn to the Lord and find peace.

GREATER by MERCYME
Bring your tired
Bring your shame
Bring your guilt
Bring your pain
Don’t you know that’s not you’re name
You will always be much more to me

Every day I wrestle with the voices
That keep telling me I’m not right
But that’s alright

‘Cause I hear a voice and He calls me redeemed
When others say I’ll never be enough
And greater is the One living inside of me
Than he who is living in the world
In the world
In the world
And greater is the One living inside of me
Than he who is living in the world

Bring your doubts
Bring your fears
Bring your hurt
Bring your tears
There’ll be no condemnation here
You are holy, righteous and redeemed

Every time I fall
There’ll be those who will call me
A mistake
Well that’s ok

There’ll be days I lose the battle
Grace says that it doesn’t matter
‘Cause the cross already won the war
He’s Greater
He’s Greater

I am learning to run freely
Understanding just how He sees me
And it makes me love Him more and more
He’s Greater
He’s Greater
