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.

A Mountain Called Calvary

 

We know Jesus came from heaven for we’ll see Him face to face

It is His power that he gives us to run this very race

 

It’s all because of mercy, His grace He freely gives

It’s only thru the cross we learn how to live

 

His commands are a guiding force for us to obey

It is His path we walk and learn to not stray

 

His Truth is what frees us from our death and sin

His Spirit is who draws us then comes to live within

 

His grace He freely offers for all who want to partake

It is chains of unforgiveness that He wants to break

 

It’s our heart He wants to change from the inside out

It’s our faith wants to increase so we never have to doubt

 

Jesus is our teacher for He wants us to learn

That grace is a gift that we can never earn

 

Jesus paid the ransom by hanging on the tree

He hung on the mountain called Calvary

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

Christ freed me from the bondage of sin

Oh my, what a mess I was in

My freedom came with a price

He died to give me new life

This new life consists of His ways

In which my aim is to not stray

He gave me His Spirit as a guide

His conviction is what I want to abide

I confess my sin to my Lord

My heart is where His Word is stored

There’s nothing I can do to earn grace

Nor strength to run in this race

Christ is the one true God

He gives healing where I am flawed

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain

Christ died to break all my chains

Oh my, how I used to be lost

I’m now thankful that Christ died on the cross

He was raised to life on the third day

To give me a life worth living today

Blessed is the pure in heart

For we will see Jesus

 

Through His righteousness

Is the only way God see’s us

 

When we are blind and can not see

On a dead end path

 

Jesus is the only source

That saves us from God’s wrath

 

When we’re lost and have strayed away

It’s Jesus that’s our light

 

He guides us on a narrow path

He protects us with His might

 

When we have taken all we can

And have endured the test

 

We put our trust in sovereign God

We know that Jesus gives us rest

Are you sick and weary and feeling lost

A slave to the grind not counting the cost

Is your aim set high but your head’s hung low

Your eyes they weep not knowing where to go

Is your mind spinning always turning you around

You have smile on your face turned upside down

Are your choices eschewed causing you to doubt

Always going in circles with no way out

At the end of the tunnel you see a light

He’s drawing you close wanting your fight

With arms stretched wide he calls out your name

He wants all your struggles and all your shame

He’ll break your chains and set your heart free

He came to redeem by hanging on a tree

He was scorned and beaten had no deceit

With forgiveness in His heart it’s you He wants to meet

He gives you a choice, while offering you grace

He’ll even give you strength to walk in this race

Give Him your burdens lay them at the cross

It’s salvation He offers for all who’s lost

If the waves are high and you’re lost in a storm

Reach out to Jesus it’s you He’ll transform

Grab His hand and hold on tight

Jesus is the answer all thru this fight

Christ humbled Himself and became a man

He came with a message obeying God’s plan

He would bleed on the cross to save man’s soul

For this was said by the prophets of old

He came to die to set man free

On a cross that was meant for me

Death could not hold Him in the grave

It was for the lost and broken He came to save

He was raised to life on the third day

Ahead of us He prepared the way

He heals the sick, the lame and the lost

If you want to follow Jesus you must count the cost

He gave us His Spirit to be our guide

Our heart is where His Spirit resides

I used to be broken with a hole in my heart

Until I met Jesus, He gave me a new start
