Let Go

Reach out your hand to Jesus
open it up to Him
He’ll take whatever is inside of it
that’s causing your light to dim

God has called Him worthy
to take hold of the Scroll
to break open it’s seven seals
and in time, let the end events unroll

So, no matter what you’re holding
it’ll never be too much
Jesus is always willing
to take whatever burdens you may clutch.

Heaven Someday

Oh! What a glorious day it’ll be

when that trumpet sounds and calls us home

Oh! What a glorious day it’ll be

The face of Jesus we’ll finally see

Oh! What a glorious day it’ll be

when I can call a mansion in Heaven my own!

Oh! How beautiful it will be

when we all get to Heaven someday.

Oh! How beautiful it will be

to be reunited with the ones we love

Oh! What a wonderful day it will be

when the troubles of this world have all gone away

Oh! What a glorious day it’ll be

when we all get to Heaven someday!

My Jesus

My salvation

My comfort

My light in the dark,

There through my pains

and my troubles and fears

Someone to talk to,

always there to wipe my tears.

A Father, a friend

A loving voice in the dark,

Even on the worst days

You’re always there to make it right.

One day in Heaven we’ll meet face to face

My Jesus, my Shepherd,

My amazing, saving Grace.

A Letter to God: My Psalm 63

IMGP6783  To My Creator:

Your love for me is amazing, unfathomable even. It’s Your Presence that my heart constantly thirsts for. Being lost in it, tears flowing down my cheeks, is one of the most incredible feelings in the world. Even though I’m not perfect, I may not remember to read my Bible everyday, or come to You in prayer every night, Your love remains the same. My hope is that through me, the light I shine for You, those around me that are lost may come to know this breathtaking, unending love.

You’re CONSTANTLY on my mind. I know people get sick of seeing my “Jesus posts,” but their opinions can’t and won’t stop me from posting and talking about You all of the time! My job is to be a light, a personal representative for You, in this dark, rundown world, I take that responsibility pretty seriously! I can hardly wait until the glorious day I get to be face to face with You, surrounded in Your presence and amazing grace. Until that day comes, I’ll continue to live for You and wait on You to move in my life. I know whatever plans You have for me will be beyond anything I could ever wrap my mind around. I pray that You will continue to make me a blessing to the people around me, especially those that don’t know You. Thank You for the amazing people You’ve blessed my life with, each one of them has made an impact on me, even if they were only temporary!

Love,

An Appreciative Sinner saved by Your endless, amazing Grace.

His Love

Jesus

His Love

A love that is eternal
A love you cannot shake
from bondage it will break you
and take away your chains

This love can make you new again,
refresh your view on life
it can take away your burdens
and rid you of all strife

Do you know this love?
His name is Jesus Christ
He bled and died upon the Cross,
for you He paid the price

You can come to Christ in brokenness,
with every joy and pain.
His love will make you whole again,
and wash away each stain.

When you come to know Him
a light begins to shine,
a light you’ll carry everywhere,
have with you all of the time.

All Christ wants from you is you,
He’ll take you as you are,
He’ll fix your broken pieces,
and He’ll heal your every scar

Even when you stray away

His love will stay the same.

He’ll wrap you in His presence

And call you back by name.

His love is free for you and me

No other gift can compare

How? You ask, the answer is simple

Just go to Him in prayer.

I know one day, not long from now

We’ll hear that glorious trumpet sound

On that day no joy will be greater

Than when I’m finally face to face with my creator.
