Our Betrayal – Luke 22:53

Our Betrayal – Luke 22:53

Would we betray the Lord?
To the haters in the garden
We are not the Judas
But do we betray Him still?
With our actions
With our sins
Before the unbelievers of this world
If the Lord is seen through our actions
Then do we betray Him still?

In A Moment Of Need – Psalm 34:4

In A Moment Of Need – Psalm 34:4

In a moment of need
At a darker time
When nights were spent
Disappearing within a bottle
When all became lost
And I cried out for help
The Lord answered my call
Opening the door to a new world
Where the darkness ended
And the bottle truly shattered
To deliver me to something new

Psalm 34:4

Wasted Years – John 8:13-16

Wasted Years – John 8:13-16

Spent so many years
Denying who You are
Questioning Your being
When I should have been
Questioning mine
I know I wasted
All those years
But now I know You
Know Your love
And who You are
I pray I won’t waste
All my years to come

Test Me – Exodus 20:20

Test Me – Exodus 20:20

Test me
Refine me
Mould me
Into something new
That I do not fear
Do not hate
And the love I hold
Be true
I won’t fear the test
Willing to suffer
The fires
To be a better person
To be a better me

As We May Stumble – Jude 1:24-25

As We May Stumble – Jude 1:24-25

To Him praise
As we may stumble
Our feet never falter
We never really fall
Not to a place
Where we could never rise again
So praise His name
For now and evermore
For He halts our fall
Catches our every stumble
To Christ Jesus
Be our praise

Fear And Love – 1 John 4:18-19

Fear And Love – 1 John 4:18-19

Our fear
A punishment
We place upon ourselves
A feeling
A thought
A failing
I can’t do this
I’m just not good enough
This just isn’t me
With every thought
We think like this
We heap the punishment
Upon ourselves
But He came for us
With His perfect love
To put an end
To our fear
To drive it out
Remove it all
So when we feel like this
That we’re just not enough
Let’s try to remember
That He loves us so
And in this love
We shall have no fear

The Path – 1 Timothy 6:11

The Path – 1 Timothy 6:11

The path you follow
The ways in which you walk
Are they righteous
Or just a lie
Are the steps in faith
Or taken in indifference
Love and gentleness
Or anger and hate
Could it be a yes and no
Does it depend upon the day
The mood
The feeling
Because I feel this too
But we have to strive
To endure all the seasons
And break free from the mess
To see it to the end
This race we are to run
This path the Father set us
Just keep doing the best we can
And we’ll make it to the end

1 Timothy 6:11

Gathering Storm – Psalm 121:2-8

Gathering Storm – Psalm 121:2-8

As I sleep this night
If the storm may arise
Where dreams turn to nightmares
And burn the mind behind the eyes
If the storm clouds gather
And the coldness of life comes closing in
To touch the soul
And chill it so
Where the vitally of life slowly disappears
If this shall come to pass
Oh Lord watch over me this night
And all the nights still to come
Not letting me fall within this storm
To lose just who it is I am
Oh Lord stay with me through the nights
Until I find the joy
That will come from the morning

Psalm 121:2-8

Though I May Shake – Hebrew 12:28

Though I May Shake – Hebrew 12:28

Though I may shake
In fear and failing
I know this
I stand upon solid ground
The Rock
It’s never shaken
It will never fall
This Kingdom I am given
These ramparts
Behind which I stand
My protect from it all
My past
My fears
My failings
For this
I am ever thankful
For this I praise Him so
With everything within me
With everything I am
