Thank You Jesus

My mind keeps spinning, round and round

I hear a voice but not a sound

I’m broken, beaten, black and blue

My scars and shining, they’re breaking thru

I try to hide and push them down

But up they come, like breaking ground


I’m falling, falling, can’t get up

My mind is scattered, like a broken cup

I get twisted, twisted in a knot

My temper rises, like a boiling pot

Add water to the boiling pot

Sizzle, sizzle, it’ll never stop


I’m deaf and blind, don’t know what to do

I lost my way, got stuck like glue

My mind’s still spinning, round and round

I’m sinking, sinking, like I’m gonna drown

On this journey, I seemed to be lost

But thank You Jesus, I see the cross


Thank You Jesus, I see Your way

You are my Savior, You saved the day

You came to me, when I lost my way

You guided me, so I wouldn’t stray

You picked me up, when I was falling down

You set me back up on solid ground


Now I’m walking, walking, running this race

Thank You Jesus, You provided me grace

Because of Your mercy, I’ll never die

I love You Jesus, I’ll do more than try

It’s because Your love, You died for me

In my place at Calvary

On the hill at Calvary

You died upon that cursed tree

I hid my life in shame and fear

I trust the One who draws me near

I cast my anxiety on the cross

You died for me when I was lost

My soul is free I will not die

I trust my Lord and not the lie

It’s when I put my trust in You

I know that You will carry me thru

From the beginning to the end

I’ll have Your Spirit that You did send

Your Spirit lives with-in my heart

Every day with You I start

You died upon that cursed tree

You died alone to set me free

I’ve been set free from guilt and sin

Never to go back again

It’s when I put my faith in You

You keep me awed in all You do

I bring my burdens to the cross

It’s in You I never get lost

My forgiveness come from faith in You

Grace thru faith is Your Truth

On the hill at Calvary

You died and rose, that’s what set me free

Who’s my strength, who’s my power

Who’s my help in every hour

I can lean on Him when times are rough

He convicts my heart when I’m acting tough

He’s the joy in my heart when I’m down and out

He picks me up when I frown and pout

When my world seems to be crashing down

He extends His hand when I’m on the ground

He is my fortress, He is my rock

He never times out off the clock

Christ’ always there when I’m a mess

Or when someone in the world causes stress

He’s my pick me up when I’m all depressed

He’s the stable in my camp when I regress

When I am lost and know not what to do

He comes along beside you know who

When I’m stuck in pride and it’s all about me

He gently prunes dead limbs off my tree

It’s fruit that He wants me to bear

Even when I’m pulling out my hair

I must remember where it all began

Back in the garden God had a plan

Adam ate the fruit and believed the lie

That he’d be like God and never have to die

God had a plan to redeem all sin

Even every mess we get stuck in

He sent His Son to hang on the tree

To provide salvation to all who believe

This is what God does all for me

When He decided to hang on that tree

If you’re lost and know not what to do

Put your faith in Jesus, He’ll save you too

It was on a hill that You died for me

A blessed place called Calvary

I remember how I was blind and lost

You never fretted at the cost

You called me out of sin and shame

It was from Your voice I heard my name

I was broken, beaten, black and blue

What a day to be called by You

What a day, a glorious day

I’m free at last, to walk Your way

I obey Your Word, I obey Your voice

You calm my mind caused by noise

I have voices living in my head

You cast them out, now their dead

It was out of hell that I’ve been called

You broke my chains, You, crashed my walls

From out of the darkness, into the light

My trust is in You thru this fight

You are my strength in this war

It was my sin that You bore

I’ve been made new, the old is done

I’m living in victory cause the war’s been won

When her love seems so far away

I remember who gave me this day

I know she doesn’t belong to me

It’s Your love that sets me free

How can You do this to her and me

Why do I have to think so selfishly

Why do you have to put her thru this pain

What’s the loss and what’s the gain

Is there a risk that we have to take

You know it’s fear that makes me shake

I try to put my trust in You

But I get depressed and it makes me blue

I try to show that I’m so tough

But my strength goes up with a puff

There are times she’s my inspiration

And there are times I’m lost in depression

When depressed I want to weep

Then at night I cry myself to sleep

It’s a fear that You’ll take her home

Then I’ll be lost and all alone

I never dreamt this will happen to my love

But I know Your Sovereign and seated above

It’s to You I’m crying out

I’m trusting You but help me where I doubt

You love her more than I ever could

But I’m learning to love her like I should

What are we to learn, how are we to live

What’s the message that we’re supposed to give

You have Your will, and nothing will thwart Your plan

Help me to be grounded in You and firmly stand

These are the questions that run thru my head

Please give us peace so fear will not be our dread

Jesus Paid It All

Posted: March 25, 2019 in Poems about God

Jesus paid it all

To Him I give my life

He freed me with His call

Now I join Him in His fight


My debt of sin’s been paid

I can live life brand new

The war on sin’s been waged

He did this all for you


I’m called to firmly stand

When life has a grip on me

Your Word is my command

By Your blood I’ve been set free


These trials I must endure

I find my rest in You

Jesus You are my cure

When life seems all so blue


I believe Your Word is true

It stood the test of time

I want to live like you

Now that I no longer live in crime


I’m no longer living lost

Because You died and took my place

You hung up on the cross

So I can run this very race


You truly are my God

I stand in awe of You

Even though I’m flawed

I embrace your Holy Truth


I want to be like You

By obeying Your commands

You are faithful and so true

It’s in You presence I can firmly stand

Broken Pieces

Posted: March 21, 2019 in Poems about God

Broken Pieces


I see broken pieces

All crashing down

Lying there scattered

On the ground


I’m wounded in battle

Weak in my faith

As I stand

The ground gives way


I keep falling and falling

Into the deep

My mind gives way

To the thoughts that just creep


There is no control

With these evil desires

My mind gives in

To what they require


I’m sick to my stomach

I have no control

Like broken pieces

I no longer feel whole


I cry and I cry

Then I hear a soft voice

He says, reach out your hand

Make a new choice


He say, here I am now

Your salvation draws near

I see my dear Savior

My choice becomes clear


I’m tasting Gods goodness

I will never turn back

Even though satan

Continues to attack


I’m walking with Jesus

I walk in His ways

He started a fire

That will blaze and just blaze


I still have my struggles

I feel weak at times

I’m no longer in darkness

I have peace in my mind


Life’s been a battle

The struggle is real

But I’m thankful to Jesus

My spirits been sealed
