“Things We Face”

“Things We Face”

Serenity – we just don’t know it.
Obscenity – we’re used to seeing it.
Imperfection – we all share it.
Desecration – we ruin what’s sacred.

Destroying what we fear –
We’re far from that point.
Being happy in every day –
It’s elusive, not our purpose.

No sense in merely existing
When we’re called to really live.
No sense in keeping score
If we’re the only ones playing.

It’s just too dark here now
To see anything around us.
We want out of this place –
The labyrinth of our failures.

Light reaches us and we turn away.
Oh, we used to welcome the sun
But now we wait for the moon,
Just to get through another night.

Long, dark roads and dead ends –
It’s so familiar and so tiring.
Oh, it’s just wearing us down,
We’re just existing now, it seems.

Things we face
In everyday life
Can build us up
Or tear us down.

We can all really live
And not merely exist.
We can breathe again,
The air so fresh and new.

If it’s in our grasp,
What’s stopping us
From getting it now
And embrace change?

“A Fool on the Wide Road”

Tell lies to get what you want,
Call the faithful “fools” for believing.
You think you have the truth in your hands,
You think unbelief will give your soul relief.

Speaking your words of hate again,
Blaspheming the name of the Holy One,
Scoffing at all that God has commanded,
You tread now the way of the lost fool.

Wide road, smooth path,
Feeling carefree as you go
Down the road you think is right
But it only leads to destruction.

Whatever your reason,
Whatever your goal,
This you should know:
As it stands, your end is Hell.

It’s so easy to believe in nothing
Beyond the visible, what’s sensed;
To believe what makes you feel good;
To believe what comforts your lost soul.

It’s so very easy but it does no good
For you only blind yourself to reality –
You ignore the perilous state of your soul;
You don’t want to believe there’s more
Than what you see and feel in this world.

“A Few Observations”

“A Few Observations”

So many love to lie,
So many bold in sinning,
Cowardly in standing
For what’s right and true.

Crooked spines and empty minds,
Crooked ways and compromise,
Exchanging truth for lies,
Watching as time flies, dies.

Down the slippery slope
At full speed like fools,
Down, down, down they go,
Where, they don’t even know.

“Glory To My God And Savior”

“Glory To My God And Savior”

My Lord, You have found me
When I was dead in my sins,
When my spirit was dead,
When my soul was lost, unsaved,
When my heart was made of stone,
When I didn’t care about You,
When I lived life for myself,
When I wanted You the least,
When I was indifferent to You,
When I was on my own way to Hell.

You found me as I was
Where I was living without You.
I didn’t know or believe then
That You gave me life and You sustained me
And every breath I wasted was a gift from You.
I held on for dear life every day
But I came to a dead end, no hope was left,
I knew something was missing,
I realized I wasn’t really living,
I admitted I was just existing,
I could find no answers within
And the worldlings had none either,
I thought nothing could be done
To be rid of my hopelessness.

I knew something was very wrong
But I didn’t look for You
But You looked for me
And You found me in my darkness,
You found me merely existing
But You kept showing mercy
And You kept sustaining me,
You gave me more days to live,
You showed me where to look
For the truth I’ve missed and ignored before,
Even though I didn’t know then
It was You working behind the scenes,
No events were mere chance and circumstance
It was all the work of Your hands.

You’ve brought me back from the dead,
You alone have given my life meaning,
You alone have given me life’s purpose,
You alone have forgiven all my sins,
You alone have washed me clean,
You’ve cleansed me from unrighteousness,
You have saved my soul,
You’ve brought my spirit to life,
You’ve given me a new heart,
You’ve given me a will to obey You,
You have made me whole,
You’ve done it all because You are love,
Because You love like no other.

God, You are incomparable,
You are my strength,
You are my hope,
You are my song,
You are the Way,
You are the Truth,
You are the Life,
You are my all in all.

You are my Maker and Creator,
You’re my Sustainer and Provider,
You are my Savior and Redeemer,
You are the King of kings,
You are the Lord of lords,
You are the one true and living God.

There is no one like You,
There is no other god,
None greater, none stronger,
No rival, no equal,
You alone reign now
And You’ll reign forevermore.
…….
Glory to God Alone

“Sad Lives Unseen”

“Sad Lives Unseen”

I’ve seen the pages of the past
Stained by the blood of the innocents;
The hands of evil ones spill blood,
Dead hearts obedient to their gods.

I’ve seen the streams of blood
Color the canvases of sad lives
Where hope is a dying ember,
Where real love is unknown.

Sacrificing everthing else
And even everyone else
For the sake of selfish gain
Is the way of the foolish lost.

What a sad sight for fortunate eyes
To know not what the suffering know,
To not feel all the pain they feel so often,
To not have to go through all they endure.

Where are those showing care?
Where is love’s embrace?
Where is the end of suffering?
Where is the work of justice?

If we’ll just carry on with our lives
We’ll be guilty of showing indifference.
If we do nothing more than only pray for them
We show we want nothing more to do with their pain.

Reach out hand if you could care,
Show that there’s love in your heart,
Just sit in silence with the sorrowing;
Sometimes presence is better than words.
