Was my heart open when You knocked at it’s door

I remember distinctly for it was a quarter past four

It was the flock you left to come search me out

I had been living lost and broken with nothing but doubt

It seemed like a dream for I was floating on air

Was lost in the world without one single care

I thought my heart was hardened for I was living in fear

Was scared as a baby hiding behind tears

I was big and tough thought I was strong

I missed the mark because I knew I was wrong

My heart is wide open please come live inside

Heal me of my sin so I no longer hide

OH WHAT A DAY, WHAT A GLORIOUS DAY

You healed my broken heart now I walk in Your ways

You relieved me of stress You taught me to trust

How to put my faith in You now for me is a must

I haven’t reached perfection I still lose my way

Even the sky gets cloudy at times it gets gray

I learn to persevere and put my trust in You

I’m learning to love and right choices to choose

It’s Your ways that I walk, Your Word I read

Thankful to the cross and fresh air that I breathe

For You are amazing, You keep me in awe

Your love covers my sin and even my flaws

For most of my life I hadn’t a care

I wore a mean mask that put on a scare

I was guided by the bondage of fear

That developed over many a year

Hardship and heartache led to choices that were flawed

Leading me to wonder, is there a God

Pushing thru life without any rest

My choices and decisions were skewed at best

Toiling and turning was the event of the day

Always leaving me to wonder is there another way

Sobering up I got squeaky clean

But never got rid of the mask that was mean

It wasn’t until I invited Him in

That I was freed from the bondage of sin

What I received was forgiveness and grace

That day on the cross Christ took my place

I’m a new creation the old life is gone

This new life I live with no mask on

If you’re on the road that leads to sin

Turn and seek the power within

 

It is God’s Spirit that guides our way

We read His Word so we will not stray

 

It is His commands we must obey

To follow His Truth and love His way

 

We heard Christ’s message we must fulfill

We hear His voice when we’re still

 

The message of the cross is the power within

Christ conquered the grave and covered our sin

 

He feeds our hunger and quenches our thirst

God desires for us to put Him first

 

To love is the command that we must fulfill

Although we are sinners He loves us still

Seducing My Soul

I hear you calling when no one’s around
You’re easy to find one click and you’re found
This is my little secret no one will ever know
I’ll clean my computer the history will never show
If anyone finds out there’s so much at stake
But you whisper sweet nothings that make my skin quake
I feel so guilty when I open your site
The temptation’s so strong I’m weak in this fight
You’re so seductive I can hardly say no
I’m so ashamed but I don’t want you to go
You’re constantly whispering come check me out
Dividing my marriage causing me doubt
Hurting my family you haven’t a care
I cry out to God my soul I must bare
Lord please help me the temptation’s too strong
Be my strength so my choices aren’t wrong
Change my heart so I walk in Your Ways
Be my guide to help me not stray
The Lord’s my strength to persevere in this fight
He convicts my heart to make choices that are right

All my life I seemed to have been lost

The heavy weight of my choices

Never counting the cost

Not thinking or penalties I had to pay

I was stuck in my choices

So there I would stay

My Savior has found me

Redeemed me at last

Given me new choices

Now I don’t live in the past

The old is gone in with the new

I still make bad choices

But try to limit them to few

Jesus is Savior, He is my Lord

I can find life’s answers all in the Sword
