High on a mountain what do I see

A world of temptation staring at me

The song it sings is take a big bite

The sin it caused started a fight

The battle is now on it’s a raging war

Good is the winner I strongly implore

Evil is right there right in my face

God is right there providing me grace

The battle I know I have to endure

My strength is from God I know this for sure

Why do I stress, why do I worry

Why do I get in such a big hurry

God is my strength to walk in this race

For He is the only one that provideth me grace

The beginning of time was the start of this fight

When lost in darkness look to Jesus for light

Up Against A Wall

When struggles arise where shall I turn

I lean on Gods Spirit or my desires will churn

It’s His Holy Spirit that is my defense

Whether up against a wall or backed into a fence

He is the strength that carries me thru

When my thoughts run rampant and are askew

He provides freedom from the bondage of sin

Thank God for His Spirit who now lives within

I’m now a disciple and try to follow Gods Word

It’s His message of grace, I hope you have heard

Jesus came from heaven to walk with mankind

He came to save souls and to leave no one behind

He walked as a man for three and a half years

To tell His message of grace for all that will hear

He was the ransom for sin and died on the cross

To save me and you and all who are lost

Now walk in the Spirit and walk in His ways

Stay on Gods path and try not to stray

Be the new creature that you have become

Watch your evil desires and do not succumb

Life following Jesus is better you see

Submit to God, resist the devil and he’ll flee

James 4:7

Submit yourselves to God, resist the devil and he’ll flee.

The Lord is with me wherever I go

Whether wading thru water, quicksand or snow

No matter the valley, no matter the peak

My Lord words are true, for it’s me He will seek

 

There’s been a time or two where I’ve strayed away

Then found myself lost with nowhere to stay

These are the times that I thought are so rough

These are the times when I’ve tried to be tough

 

These are the time where I saw no way out

These are the times I did nothing but doubt

My Lord extended mercy, for He extended me grace

For He gave me all I need to run this very race

 

He even reached down to take my little hand

To lead me across the river into the promise land

My Lord will go before me where ever I go

For He will never leave me for this I now know

Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

Love came from heaven to walk the earth

It was all who’s lost He came to search

 

He was beaten bloody, bruised black and blue

Hung on the cross meant for me and you

 

It is His message that changes our heart

It is His Spirit that He imparts

 

It’s His grace that’s free for all

A response is needed with the call

 

A new creation is what we are

He set the standard, He raised the bar

 

Our walk with Christ is paramount

It is the cost that we must count

 

A humble heart is our goal

We belong now to God’s fold

 

It’s His grace we can’t earn

For this is the message we must learn

 

If you’re broken or lost or can’t find your way

Jesus is the answer for everyday

We come to the alter

Where God’s arms are open wide

He’s gifted us with love

Thru His sacrificial life

 

We come to the cross

Where He’s the source of our rest

He is our strength

When facing all of life’s test

 

It’s in His presence

That we all desire to be

We walk by the Spirit

We are forgiven and free

 

We come to the alter

Where His yoke is lite

It’s thru His blood

We have union with the Light

 

We come to the cross

For the source of life it brings

We will lift up our voice

With praises we will sing

Tear Stained Shoes

 

I’ve got some regrets

Have made some mistakes

Been down a road

That does nothing but take

 

I’ve walked a few miles

In my tear stained shoes

With nothing but scars

My way I did loose

 

There’s wounds in my heart

Scars on my chest

I keep looking to God

To give me nothing but rest

 

It’s His grace He bestowed

His mercy I didn’t earn

I walk with Him now

It’s His presence I yearn

 

His peace He does give

My heart is now full

I feel the nudge from His Spirit

His love has a pull

 

In His ways that I walk

It’s His voice that I hear

Drawing me close

Drawing me near

This is a poem written by my daughter Christina Wilson.

 

I began to dwell in my thoughts

Does He love me or not

It seems in my mind

The devil has me in knots

 

Over and over again

How I repeat my own sin

The devil has me confused

My life is what’s bruised

 

It’s in my mind that I dwell

My voice wants to tell

Of God’s great grace

How He spared me from hell

 

I now dwell in my thoughts

Does He love me or not

It’s His voice that I hear

How He draws me so near
