We thought we were a bunch of nobodies

Who was loved by a special somebody

He enables us to love everybody

Loved by the Blood

 

We weren’t but a bunch of busy bodies

Whose love came through that special somebody

He empowers us to serve all bodies

Loved by the Blood

 

We now belong to just one body

Who hung from His own created tree

That Blood’s purpose when touching the ground

Was to reach you and me

Loved by the Blood

 

We love and praise God above

We are Loved by the Blood

  • Seeing Red (reeknittingwordswithgod.wordpress.com)

I have pain and anger inside

The more I have the more I hide

 

The promise of Gods Word, I seem to know

However, this freedom I can’t at this time show

 

Why do I feel guilty, sad and alone

Because this burden I carry on my own

 

This burden seems not to end

All because I walked out on a friend

 

To be honest and not want to lie

I want to run but I must not hide

 

The pain and fear I must walk through

Is to gain freedom and be renewed

 

This comes from Christ knowing me

It started because He hung on a tree

 

This is a relationship I no longer deny

Christ is the answer to the Hope inside

Hell is a very real place

For all who won’t walk in God’s ways

 

Evil comes to kill, steal and destroy

He plays with you like some toy

 

His aim is to cause hurt and pain

For all who, his ways, won’t refrain

 

He will not wait for tomorrow

To cause suffering and sorrow

 

He wants to steal your soul

So down to hell you will go

 

He has no love to measure

Your soul is his valued treasure

 

He is a creature made by God

Under Christ’s feet he will trod

 

This spiritual war is already won

Because God sent Jesus, His son

 

So no longer do you have to delay

To come to Jesus and be saved

Gods Word we must study and obey

For this is what Jesus does say

Gods will is what we do seek

As we study so diligently

This is when we can test and approve

That Gods will is for me and for you

As we study we can hear Gods voice

What the world believes is that this is all noise

Too many people are living for the world

As disciples of Christ we live by the Sword

The Sword is Gods Word that we must read

It is the Truth that sets captives free

That’s when Christians are made free from the

Bondage of sin

So by serving Jesus we now win

The prize of salvation and eternal life

As members of Gods church we are His bride

If you don’t read Gods Word every day

We implore no longer should you delay

By following all of Gods commands

We can firmly take the right stand

To have faith in God is to trust

To grow in Christ is a must

 

As I grow what I learn is to serve

While on Gods path not to swerve

 

What I desire is to study and obey

And to walk and follow in Gods ways

 

To not sin as I walk is a struggle

Two styles of life I can not juggle

 

Although I’ve tried and gave into sin

My flesh is weak and I can not win

 

As I trust in Him I learn not to lie

In a bed of sin that will cause me to die

 

I know a man stronger than I

I put my faith in Christ, who gives eternal life

To God in the name of Jesus I pray

I offer the thoughts of what I will say

 

I petition You on behalf of family and friends

For us to not be selfish and follow the trends

 

For your Spirit to give guidance and lend me a hand

To walk in your ways and follow your commands

 

To confess and ask forgiveness of sin

To stand firm through the storm I am in

 

I thank you for the Armor you alone provide

For the ability to stand firm and not hide

 

For the willingness to serve you and not ignore

The Truth that can only come from Your Sword.

I always have struggled with some sort of pain

On the just and unjust, us all it does rain

 

It can be psychological, emotional or even physical

So when asking God for strength, I can not be cynical

 

I always seem to want for God to be fair

Often I ask Him to remove pain and despair

 

Often this pain will cause me some hurt

With Christ in my life, pain I learn not to avert

 

There is good that will come from this pain

So that in Christ Jesus, I will always remain
