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

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

I awoke one morning with pain in my heart

Trying to find words is a hard start

I describe the pain as one big hole

Empty was I with an ache in my soul

I describe the ache with one big sigh

Temptation set in and I wanted to get high

My mouth began to water, I got a taste in my mouth

My mind began to wonder and my thoughts went south

I start thinking about back in the day

How I started using drugs and lost my own way

My soul became empty and broken was I

My thoughts were churning how I wanted to die

I needed a fix and I needed it right then

Broken was I and I thought it was the end

I rolled onto to the floor and on to my knees

I said a quick prayer, Lord will You please

I heard a soft voice whisper in my ear

Come to me child I’ll draw you near

That was the day my life began to change

I found a Savior in Christ who no longer was strange

I gave Him my life and submitted to His ways

With the strength of His Spirit, I don’t have to stray

I call Him my friend, I call Him my Lord

I stay in His Word to sharpen my Sword

He led me with His Spirit and filled that hole

I am no longer empty I gave Him my soul

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

Oh my Lord, I’ve sinned again
What can I do, I can’t seem to win
I’m being tempted, it’s way too strong
I am weak, I am wrong
I know it comes as an attack
It’s like a monkey that’s on my back
It’s a thorn in my side
It’s sticking out, I can’t seem to hide
It’s the sin that drives me wild
I seem to forget that I’m Your child
I try to run but it pulls me in
Oh my Lord I can’t seem to win
You give me armor that I’m to don
It’s of no use unless I put it on
You gave Your Word that I’m to read
It does no good unless I head
Oh my Lord these words I say
Hear them now, to You I pray
It’s Your Word that is true
Oh my Lord draw me close to you
It’s Your Spirit that leads the way
Be my strength so I will not stray
Oh my Lord You are my guide
It’s Your Truth that I must abide
Oh my Lord You are the Light
You are my strength in this fight
You are strong where I am weak
A relationship with You is what I seek
Oh my Lord be my God
Make me pure where I am flawed
It’s Your Word that I believe is true
Help me now to turn back to You

Lord it’s to you my heart I give
Passion for You is how I want to live

You made a way to give grace a start
It’s Your grace that opened and changed my heart

Your mercy is what saved me from death
I’m grateful for each day You give me breath

It’s Your love that put Jesus on a cross
It’s Your plan to redeem and save the lost

You alone raised Jesus from the grave
For all who believe they will no longer be a slave

It is You who breaks my chains to sin
You left me a guide and He lives within

It’s Your Spirit that convicts me when I’m wrong
It’s Your Word that guides and makes me strong

Your wisdom is what I need to help me change
When I do it’s my life that gets rearranged

The gospel is what we’re called to share
Your Truth is how You show You care

Salvation comes only through Your Son
He is the Light and He is the only one

We Are Called
By His Blood

We are called to follow Jesus
On a cross, He died to free us
It’s by His blood that we can live
In response, our life we give

By His walk He is known
Through His Word we are shown
It’s by His Spirit we are led
All because His blood was shed

He sent His Spirit to be our guide
He promised to never leave our side
It’s by His blood we can see
On the cross He died for thee

We are called to testify
It’s His Truth we can’t deny
It’s by blood we are healed
It’s through His Spirit we are sealed

We are called to spread His Word
It’s the message we have heard
It’s through His death our life is new
It’s through His Word our mind’s renewed

As we live for Him each day
Through His Word we trust and pray
It’s by His blood we are blessed
It’s through trust in Him we have rest
