Change

I am not who I was
Before I met Jesus
I am not who I was
The day before yesterday
Because inside me
Lives my God Who daily
Works to change
Who I am
To look more like
Who He designed me to be
It’s a change
That doesn’t end
Until my last breath
When He brings
Me to Him
That’s the day
I finally go home
Home to Heaven

Grace

Life is bumpy
Jagged and hard
We bruise constantly
Cut in shards
Of things people say
Of being ignored
Of going down the street
And treated like we’re creeps
Instead of who we are
Which is people
Created and unique
Designed just to be
Exactly who we are
We need grace to deal
With the bumps and pain
Unbudging grace
That can’t be explained
By human standards
Because it doesn’t make sense
And it’s just what we need
That free grace
That comes from God
Wholly from Jesus’
Sacrifice on the cross
His death brought healing
Forgiveness we all need
And He did it all through
Grace, holy grace, freely given
Holy grace straight from God
That’s what we need

In Your Hands

I put my hurt, my pain
In Your hands, Lord
I’m in Your hands, Lord

I put my need for healing
In Your hands, Lord
I’m in Your hands, Lord

All that I am, all I’ll be
Is in Your hands, Lord
I’m in Your hands, Lord

When the world rises up
Chewing on me
Filling the air
So I cannot breathe

That’s when I jump into the air
And I land wholly
In Your hands, Lord
I’m in Your hands, Lord

Forever and always
I belong to You
My life is firmly and completely
In the hands of God

Forever and always,
In Your hands, Lord
I’m in Your hands, Lord

Hope

Hope is this thing we all need
That can’t be brushed off
Or washed away
It can’t be taken
By another person
Because hope comes
From within, not from outside
And hope is completely contagious
Hope will carry is forward
When all other things are lost
When logic says to quit
And everyone says
It’s time to surrender
Hope is the crazy,
Often stupid seeming thing
That propels us on
When all seems lost
Hope is essential to life
And if you still draw breath,
There is hope inside of you.

Judgement

What are we doing
Running around
Labeling and judging
One another
Stop it, fellow Christians
There is only one judge
And that is Jesus
We have neither the right
Nor the authority
To examine each others’ hearts
That’s not our job
We’re here to love
And to bring glory to Christ
That’s our job.
Judgement belongs
Only to the Lord.

Agree

Agreement, alignment
Together for a single purpose
That has a power
To get things done
That can’t be done alone

I align myself
In agreement with
The One Who made
The entire universe
Out of nothing

God’s plan is the one
I agree with
I set my feet on
It is the only
Path for me

Put me in
Full agreement
Only with God’s
Purpose and plan
I agree with Him
Only with Him
