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

Christ humbled Himself and became a man

With a message He came, obeying God’s plan

He would bleed on a tree to save our soul

This was said by the prophets of old

He came to die to set man free

He died for you, He died for me

He brought us His Word, He brought us grace

Christ gives us power to run in this race

He gives what we need to live a holy life

He’s our strength in temptation and in strife

I’ve tasted God’s goodness, I’ve tasted His ways

From His commands I never want to stray

Christ is my Savior, He is my Lord

He is my comfort when in discord

Christ changed my heart, for this I know

As I practice His ways there’s fruit that shows

Jesus is more than just a friend

I know He’ll be with me till the very end

I love my Jesus with all of my heart

I try to put Him first right from the start

There’s power in the blood, there’s power in the resurrection

If you submit to Jesus He will give you more than affection

He gives us love, He calls us His heir

I hope you will choose Jesus, This is my prayer

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

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

It was is in the wee hours of a star lit night

Wise men were guided by a star so bright

They were following what the prophets foretold

Bringing with them myrrh, frankincense, and gold

They were gifts for the new born king

The child of which the angels did sing

Conceived by God’s Spirit not by a man

Born of a virgin for this was God’s plan

Sent from God this child sublime

Redemption came from this perfect paradigm

This child came with a message that He must tell

His message of redemption that saves us from hell

This message of redemption we all must hear

Oh Holy Spirit come open our ears

Open our hearts to receive God’s Word

The message of Christ is the message we heard

The Son of God is King at birth

His message is told throughout the earth

If you’re in need of hope on Christmas this year

It’s the message of Christ I pray that you hear
