This is a poem written by my daughter and was inspired while at a womens retreat with my wife.

 

Yours

By: AnnaMarie Jones

 

Today whilst I prayed,

God led me to him

 

God, help my walk

and my talk

and my life to be yours

 

Help my sorrow

and my pain

and my sadness to be yours

 

Help my love

and my joy

and my heart to be yours

 

Help my tears of joy

and tears of love

and tears of laughter to be yours

 

Help my words

and my talk

and my pen to be yours

 

Help my jealousy

and my anger

and my forgiveness to be yours

 

Help my friends

and my family

and everything to be yours

 

But most of all…

Help me to be yours

Oh my God, I need more of You
You give me life, I know this is true

If it wasn’t for You, I’d be lost in sin
Eternal death would have been my friend

You put Your Son up on a cross
You came for me where I was lost

It’s Your Son that gives me hope
With You I do more than cope

I was blind but now I see
It’s Your love that died for me

You gave me life to start a new
I am loved all because of You

Christ is the Author of our faith
Sin is why He came to save

He came to save the lost
And give life to those who count the cost

So let’s throw out the things that bind us
Walk away from sin that entwines us

Let’s run the race at hand
And firmly take a stand

To keep our eyes fixed on Jesus
Because He’s the one that frees us

For He endured the cross
Giving hope unto all whose lost

Hebrews 12:1-3
1. Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2. fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross,scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

God has called us out of darkness
And living our life in sin
We are called to be a chosen people
It’s His righteousness that we live in

We are called to be a royal priesthood
A people belonging to God
To abstain from sinful desires
To not live in the flesh that’s flawed

We are called to be a holy nation
Not living like the world
We are called to live separate
Than the world that’s coming unfurled

We are God’s special possession
That we might declare praises of Him
Again He called us out of darkness
That we might bring glory to Him

Once we were not a people
But now we belong to God
We have now received Gods mercy
To refrain from living like we’re flawed

1 Peter 2:10
9. But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, Gods special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10. Once you were not a people, but you are the people of God; once you had not received Gods mercy, but you now have received mercy.
