“Only One God Can Save You”

You’re shaking in your flesh,
You’re losing your mind,
Your body falls to the ground,
Your spirit fills with a great fear,
Cracks in your hope grow
And shatter before you know it.

Your god left you,
You’re losing faith in your god,
Your god let you down,
Your god left you to drown,
Your god left you to die,
The end couldn’t be otherwise.

Your mind conceived a false hope,
Your heart was enslaved by the false,
Your faith was in a false god,
You traded one for another and another
But the result was always the same:
Another false god that couldn’t save you,
Another trick the devil pulled on you
And another lie that you fell for.

Stuck in a cycle of looking to false gods
To get what they can never give;
Another search for salvation in vain,
Another fruitless search for happiness,
Another scale over your eyes to keep you from seeing the truth
That every god you chased and served was just another lie.

If you had sooner seen the truth
You’d sooner see the futility of serving false gods,
The waste of time and energy, of money and life,
The truth would become painfully clear:

There’s only One God Who can save you,
Only One can give you new life,
Only One can give you real joy,
Give life to your dead spirit,
Turn your stone heart to flesh,
Put a living hope in your heart,
He can be your strength to fight
The battles we all must fight in life,
He can give you what you need
To do what you must, what you ought to do,
He can illuminate your mind,
He can take away your fear of man,
He can change your life for the better,
He can take away your long-existing confusion,
He can give you the blessed assurance,
He can open your eyes to so much
That you’ve missed, overlooked, ignored, haven’t seen,
He can kill your pride and give you humility.

Life in Christ isn’t the absence of difficulties;
It’s not a daily walk through soft grass and flowers;
It’s not the absence of obstacles and challenges
For without those you couldn’t grow;
Temptations, struggles, tests and trials will come
And through them all we will grow
In faith, hope, patience, endurance, trust in God;
Without it all we’d never grow,
We’d be too weak to do anything good.

Welcome life’s challenges and trust in the Lord,
Seek His face and rely on His strength,
Call on His name without hesitation or shame,
He can be trusted, He is faithful and just
And He does all He said He will.

Jesus Christ is the only true Lord and Savior,
He alone can save your soul,
He can take away your guilt and shame,
He can wash you clean by His Blood,
He is the only Way to God the Father,
The only Mediator between God and man,
The only One who makes atonement for our sins,
He’s the Lamb of God and the Lion of Judah,
He’s the Son of man and the Son of God,
There’s no one else like Him anywhere,
He has no rival, He has no equal,
He’s the Prince of peace,
He’s the Warrior King,
He is Sovereign over all,
He is Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient,
He alone is God now and forever.

Come to Jesus Christ,
Come, you are called,
Come while you can,
Come while you live,
Don’t put it off, please,
One day it’ll be too late.

“Thoughts Aired”

What in anything is worth anything?
What in life is worth the pain?
What’s worth losing to something gain?
What’s it all for if all goes to nothing?

Shine bright, dream, before vanishing;
Pray true, heart, for some hopeful time;
Fail fast, body, from this famishing;
Hang low, hands that worked the crime.

Above the soft white swims by,
Below the hard hears a goodbye
Uttered by dying lips, last dance,
Burns now away change’s chance.

Little lasts my strength for need,
Fallow lies the ground for seed,
Burns slow another part of given thread,
Stagnates the water and molds the bread.

Ends the dream of happy days,
Fades the hope of comfortable life,
Strife’s filled many yesterdays,
Comfort dies at the hands of strife.

Never forget it nor its value diminish,
What is worth most, treasure, cherish,
Until last breath, yes, until life’s finish,
Ever in salvation through Christ relish.

Sight to see the given good is imperfect, truth I say,
Damage see like the sun in the sky on a cloudless day.
