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

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

In brokenness that I can’t hide

It’s You Jesus that I confide

In my walk it’s Your strength I need

When I break Your heart, it’s Your blood I bleed

Higher than mine is Your ways

From Your Word I do not stray

In my weakness I need You

It’s Your Word that I hold on to

Faith through grace is what I need

On the Cross Christ did bleed

His blood is the sacrifice that atoned for sin

Will I call on Jesus with the mess I’m in

Jesus Christ is the only way

To see Holy God on that day

If you are in need of grace

Or strength to help you in this race

Call on Jesus , He’s our friend

He’ll walk with us till the end

He sent His Spirit to be our guide

He loves us all with arms stretched wide

Let’s fix our eyes upon Jesus

The author of our faith

Through love is how He sees us

To obey Him is the way

Let’s fix our eyes upon Jesus

A call on our life He placed

The cross is how He freed us

We respond to His call in faith

Let’s fix our eyes upon Jesus

His grace we could never earn

He said He would never leave us

Through trials is how we learn

Let’s fix our eyes upon Jesus

Our ways we must count the cost

His love is what frees us

When He died upon the cross

Let’s fix our eyes upon Jesus

His ways we must learn to obey

His love is how He sees us

When we trust Him all the way

Hebrews 12:1-2

Therefore let us also, seeing we are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses,

lay aside every weight, and sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with

patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and perfecter

of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising

shame, and hath sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Blessed Be Your Name

Lord, I’ve made my share of mistakes

For granted, You, I never want to take

You are the Rock, in which I stand

I know You will lead me to the promise land

I’ve lived in the desert way too long

Help me to sing Your glorious song

Lead me on the path, of the everlasting way

Help me to walk with You and not sway

It’s in You, that I put my trust

Faith in You, for me is a must

You open my eyes when I am blind

It’s Your Truth, that I hope to find

Your faithful, this I know

Your grace, is what I want to show

You search and find me when I’m lost

My ways, I must count the cost

It’s a white flag, that I raise

To You is who I sing praise

Blessed be Your name

You’ll never change, You’ll always be the same

Lord I will not be shaken

Even tho in my boots I am quaking

It is You that I find hope in

Even tho I am broken

Lord I will not be moved

Even tho satan is smooth

You are the rock in which I stand

As long as I reach up for Your hand

You will never lead me astray

For this Your Word does say

I will never have to worry or fear

Because You will draw me near

Your arms are always open wide

You said You’d never leave my side

The same Spirit that rose Christ from the grave

Is the same Spirit that leads me today

Lord you are my strength

As long as I don’t keep You at arms length

You are a promise from God

In You, forever I will be Awed

The King of Israel is born

Unto a world that is sinful and torn

He came for Israel’s lost sheep

But their old ways they’d rather keep

Many miracles He did perform

The Pharisees treated Him with scorn

He healed the sick and the lame

The blind got to see without shame

He had love for all that were lost

His love got Him hung on a cross

Or was it sin that put Him upon that tree

The broken He came to set free

He rose from the grave on the third day

It’s to Him we are thankful we pray

The world is still broken and lost

I am thankful that He hung on that cross

He still comes for all that are broken

His love is what we find hope in
