You are mighty, You are strong

You are here and never gone

 

When I am falling, I am raised

I will forever sing Your praise

 

When I am scared you hold my hand

Then lead me back to the promise land

 

When I run, You bring me back

You help me when I am attacked

 

When I stumble and I am falling

It is Your voice that I hear calling

 

When I’m lost You provide a way

Your Word says that I never have to stray

 

When I sin You are there to forgive

It’s You Lord that teaches me how to live

 

When I’m lost You come for me

All because You died on cavalries tree

 

When I finally surrender to God

He will heal me of my flaws

 

As I’m on my knees and pray

It’s You who promised a way

 

You are Mighty, You are Strong Lord

It’s You Lord who I forever long for

We are told to turn and run from lust

One look can take away all our trust

One look is never just one look

You sneak another and that’s all it took

One look has you captured by surprise

You never look into their eyes

One look inhabits the pleasure zone

Which in the end leaves you all alone

You’re captured by an adrenaline rush

Which turns your reality into mush

One look will cause you to sneak around

When in full bloom has you bound

One look gets you all aroused

Before you know it has you soused

One look has deception whispering in your ears

Then tells you lies that turn into tears

One look has you in chains of selfishness

Then has you blind and saying To Hell With This

One look will rob you of your family

Which will have you chained to calamity

But there is someone who can free you of these chains

Turn to Jesus and hand over the reins

Submit to God resist the devil and he will flee

When you submit to God He’ll be all you’ll see

My Father is known for His grace

This is a gift that I must embrace

As I learn to walk with God

One by one He heals me of my flaws

I’ve been called to live by His ways

Staying in His Word helps me not to stray

I submit to Him all my life

This helps not to act out in strife

Christ is my Lord He is my King

I know I can trust Him in everything

He prunes and trims me so I grow

I read His Word so it I will know

I’m a follower of the most High

He set me free so no longer will I die

I follow His ways I follow His Word

It’s the Gospel Message that I have heard

He calls me His child He calls me friend

This message of grace will free you from sin

He alone chose to die for me

When we nailed Him on that Calvary’s tree

It was a decision that God had made

Jesus was the man who obeyed

He walked this earth for thirty three years

He paid the price for all of our fears

Now sin and pleasure come with a price

Who’s counting the cost it never ends nice

The price for sin is death this I know

You must die to yourself and let the change show

When I say die I mean turn from your sin

This is a change that God can only do from within

Christ reaches in and changes your heart

Regenerates your life to give you a new start

Forgiveness of sin is what we desire

As we walk with our God His ways we aspire

You are our Lord, You are our King
It’s praises to You that we want to sing
We bow in your presence, we kneel at Your cross
It’s Your message of grace that saves all whose lost
You are the light, You are the way
All who come to You Christ will be saved this very day
You are the well that never runs dry
All who drink of you now will never have to die
You are the banner that hung high on a hill
All who submit to You now will forever be filled
You are the bread that gives us new life
We are Your bride like a husbands new wife
You sent us Your Spirit to convict us of sin
Because of Your grace it’s our hearts that get cleansed
You are the Truth that offers us freedom
We change our old ways for we no longer need them
It is out with the old and in with the new
We give glory to God all because of You

A Fork In the Road

I got lost somewhere along the way
From Your Word is where I started to stray
On this path my walk began to shift
Right and wrong I could no longer sift
I was being distracted by the pretties of the day
It appeared to me that I was following my own way
In my heart I was always being torn
The separation that it caused had me feeling worn
Everyday I came to a fork in the road
This is getting hard for alone I carried this load
This is my burden I chose to carry by myself
My walk with Christ I chose to put on a shelf
I put up a wall to avoid the conviction in my heart
But deep within my chest I knew just where to start
It all started with a simple prayer
Asking God if He will help me pull back the layers
But first things first I must confess my sin
I walked away from God what a mess it caused within
I ask God to forgive me and my wicked ways
On His righteous path is where I want to stay
I must confess it is me that walks away from God
I believe the same lie that caused man to be flawed
I know the devil comes to kill, steal and destroy
He uses the pretties of the day as his decoy
He tries to get me to live a defeated life
To live in sin which causes strife
But thankful to God Jesus is my Lord
He gave us His Word which we call our Sword
From the beginning God had a master plan
To send Jesus as the redeemer for man
He put Jesus high up on a cross
To save all who’s getting lost
So if you are like me and have lost your way
Turn to Jesus, He’s the only Way

Christ came to redeem all who’s lost
He paid it all while upon that cross
If you’re lost and have no one to cling
All your burdens to the cross you must bring
And if you’re lost and have no place to go
Tarry to our Lord His way you must know
And if you’re lost deep in sin
He is the way forgiveness comes from Him
He is the Way the Only Way
From His Word we must not stray
He is the Way the Living Water
He is the only way to the Father
So when I seem to have lost my way
I remember it was Christ who paid
