We are created in the image of God

No matter how we are flawed

 

It was Jesus who came in the form of a slave

He came, He lived, He conquered the grave

 

There’s freedom in the life that He gives

We are called to obedience in this life that we live

 

It’s by His Spirit we learn to walk

We show our faith more than our talk

 

He died on the cross, was raised on the third day

He freed us from sin to give us The Way

 

It’s by His grace that we are saved

He set us on a path, a way that He paved

 

When you suffer with trials of all kinds

Did into His Word to free your mind

 

He has given us His Word, His Word we can trust

Put action to faith and trust is a must

 

So when the storms of life come your way

You can stand on the Rock and not be swayed

I hear voices what do they say

One says love and another says stray

If I love what must I do

Follow Gods heart and forever be true

If I stray where will I go

Down the wrong path, away from my hope

 

I have sin, it’s deep in my heart

I have Your Spirit, which is where I should start

When sin is my greatest desire

Then trusting the world is my greatest empire

It’s You that gives me direction

Thru Your Spirit I get my correction

 

Your love covers all my sin

And the battle that rages within

I know it’s you that I alone can trust

Faith in You for me is a must

When You died on Cavalry’s Tree

You rose from the grave to set me free

 

I know I can trust in Your Word

For it’s the Gospel Message I have heard

Your Blood freed me from the bondage of sin

Now it’s the abundant life that I live in

Lord, You provide hope in this life I live

Now service to You I freely give

In It To Win It ~

In It To Win It ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Beaten, but not broken,
down, but not out
for I’m in this fight
to win the bout.

Shattered, but not crushed,
weak, but not frail
for there’s no way
Satan’s taking me to hell.

Tattered, but not torn,
bleak, but not resigned
for my heart and God’s
will always be aligned.

Fragile, but not hopeless,
mournful, but not blue
for nothing can shake
my faith, Lord in You.

Beaten, but not broken,
for I’m in it to win it . . .
that’s why you won’t see
me ever give up or quit!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:12

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness
of this world, against spiritual
wickedness in high places.”

Lord, when I’m weary and broken down

Can’t pick my frown up off the ground

It’s Your love that You alone provide

So in my shame I no longer hide

 

When the world has me breathing hard

My character has then been charred

It is Your mercy that provides me grace

So I then can continue in this race

 

When I break down and give in to sin

Then rebel against the Spirit within

I get stuck and lost in pride

But Lord You never leave my side

 

I’m amazed and awed by You

How Your Word is always true

Even tho I wander and stray

You still mold me just like clay

 

It’s Your character You want to perfect

My ideas I still try to inject

But You Lord prune my ways

So on Your path I’ll always stay

 

When my scars are shining thru

And my flaws stick like glue

You freed me from my chains

So I no longer have to strain

 

It’s Your love You hung on that tree

Then died and rose for me

To free me from this fight

Then be my guiding Light

God is Sovereign, He’s in

control

He sent Christ to save our

soul

He walked the earth as a

man

With a message to complete

Gods plan

Christ came to save all

who’s lost

By giving us grace thru

the cross

If it wasn’t for Christ, we’d

have no hope

There would be no way for

us to cope

Life would then just be a

waste

Living then dying in so

much haste

But there is a way to be

born again

We’ll then be free from a

life of sin

In Jesus’ name we must

believe

Cling to His Word is how

we cleave

His Word is Truth and life

it gives

To understand His Word is

how we live

If you believe all this to be

true

Christ Jesus is looking to save

you to

It’s when I’m broken that I see You shining thru

You are my guide when I don’t know what to do

You are my anchor when I’ve drifted out to sea

Christ, You pull me back when I want to run and flee

It’s Your love that covers all my sin

Thankful for Christ’ Spirit who now comes to live within

When I am weary it’s You that gives me strength

That is if I don’t keep You at arms length

When in darkness You are my guiding light

You help me endure when tempted in this fight

You pick me up when I’m falling to the ground

In my sin You kept me from being drowned

It was Your Love that You nailed upon the cross

Thankful for grace, You died for all who’s lost

You are my refuge when I’m failing in this race

Thankful to Christ, You’re the only one that provides me grace

A fool in his heart says there’s no God

We have to ask for grace because we are flawed

Sin entered the world thru rebellion of one man

Tho the redemption of one man God had a plan

In the likeness of man God sent His Son

Thru His death on the cross salvation was won

Forgiveness is what He extended to all

God’s grace is what covered the fall

If you believe in your heart not just your head

That Jesus is God and He was raised from the dead

Then you will be saved from death caused by sin

His Spirit will now come and live within

Have you confessed with your mouth that Jesus is God

Because His love on the cross covers over our flaws

This is fact, not fiction, not false, but True

It comes from the Word of God and He’s looking for you

If you have a question or burden deep down in your heart

Look to Jesus as Savior for He’ll give you a new start

This is God’s story, this is His song

It’s the Word I will preach all day the day long

Romans 10:9

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Amen!
