It’s good not to …

It’s good not to care
About worthless things,
I’m learning to break free
Of them, leave them behind.

Onward without caring
About temporal things
Which won’t last at all
But are just a waste.

“Not Alone In This”

“Not Alone In This”

Well, look at you now,
Down on the ground,
You want to give up,
You feel you can’t win.

Would you look up now?
I reach my hand out to you,
I’ll help you up, are you willing?
I know you can stand again.

Are you hoping this will pass
If you fold your hands and wait?
Can you hope this won’t last
Even if you just watch and wait?

Are you running out of hope?
Every morning grey and routinue,
Every night your bed’s for one,
Every dream you’ll just forget.

Are you crying out for answers
But nobody seems to be replying?
Do you think nobody cares now,
Everyone’s too busy being busy?

Do you just want to escape this?
Memories replay in your mind,
All those good days are gone,
So what’s ahead, on the horizon?

Is it all crashing down around you?
Are you trying to bear the weight
Of all you past wrongs and failures?
Can you leave the past in the past?

You’re not alone in this,
You’re not left for dead,
Not left to wither away,
Not left to be forgotten.

I may not have been
Just where you’ve been,
I may not have seen
Just what you’ve seen

But I know it can get so dark
And I know things can get hard
Making you want to stop trying,
Making you want to give up on it all.

I haven’t lost all that you’ve lost,
I haven’t felt all that you’ve felt,
But we’re all on a journey in life
And I’m not too far away from you.

Pour out your sorrow, I’m not deaf,
I’ll hear it all and I’ll listen
Though I may not say a word,
Presence and attention are needed.

“Do Not Look Away”

“Do Not Look Away”

Do not look away
And do not sway
To evil influence
Or false pretense.

We’re dreaming our dreams
And can’t hear the screams,
The suffering still cry,
Their tears who’ll dry?

The eyes that look away
Say what lips won’t say:
Some are too greedy to share
And some too busy to care.

Oh, it’s easy to see
We’re all too busy,
Just too busy to love,
Give of what we have.

We wake up and we see the world,
It seems things are cold and whirled,
Things are not as they could be,
Things could be better, you see.

We’re all prone to doubt,
To wandering further out,
We are falling faster still,
We’re running farther still.

Do not look away,
Avoid the evil way,
Stand your ground,
Hear truth’s sound.

Trying to fill empty hearts
And put back together parts
Broken by words and deeds;
Oh, this is where it all leads.

Honestly, oh, honestly, it’s a sad life
If it consists of emptiness and strife.
Fight it now and rise above,
Life is not life without love!

Who wants things to be this way?
Who doesn’t want it to go away –
All the strife and the wars and the pain?
We must do what we can, it’s not in vain!

Don’t go that way,
Do not look away,
Stop and turn around,
Follow the true sound.
…………
Glory to God Alone.

“Fear Not, Christ Overcame”

“Fear Not, Christ Overcame”

You profess the Deathless Conqueror as your King, so don’t fear mortal humankind!
You claim the resurrected Jesus Christ as your Savior, so don’t fear your inevitable death!
Christ overcame the world, so don’t think you’re defeated!
Christ has redeemed your soul, so don’t think sin has power over you to enslave you!
Christ has transferred you into His Kingdom, so don’t think the devil owns any part of you!
Christ is greater than he who is in the world, so don’t fear a possible victory by the archenemy Satan!
God is always in control, so fear not the devil’s wrath!
God has already won the war, so fear not the war’s outcome!

“Let Not …”

“Let Not …”

Let not changing times become an opportunity to disobey God’s commands.
Let not others’ opinions of you lead you to compromise your faith in Christ, in God.
Let not temptation become a predator of which you are easy prey.
Let not the devil’s wrath weaken your resolve to serve God with your whole heart, soul, mind, strength and life.
Let not your weaknesses be excuses to keep you from doing what God called you to do by the power He wants to use to obey His will.

“God is Not Dead!”

“God is Not Dead!”

We can hear them saying: “We do not believe in your God,
But even if He was alive before, He’s obviously now dead!
Tell us, believers, if He exists, where is your God now?
Where (where) is (is) your (your) God (God) now (now)?!”

We declare confidently: God is not dead! He was never dead!
He has always existed, He never died to any, only ignored!
He always was, and is, and always will be
Everlasting, unchanging, Almighty God!

“The Most Vile Knows Not”

“The Most Vile Knows Not”

Most precious blood has never poured down upon you
It never covered your pitiful frame, your soul has never known
The grace unfathomable and most lovely, what you do
Only shows your damned state, planned ruination in motion.

The vile conception of the devilish mind takes form
In actions too heinous to describe, the condemned bleeds
The blood of hell upon the eyes of blinded, foolish allies.

Standing wretched, cursing the blessed with the view
That you could never have or hold or understand,
Devil, know, blessed are we that we are free from thee.
By the power of our Savior we now truly live and see.
