Guarded 

The devil will try to destroy you
don’t believe a word that he says

Doubts and lies are all he knows

Don’t let him into your head.

But, the God you serve is greater 

For the battle, you’re prepared 

In His presence you are guarded 

He makes the enemy run scared.

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”

~John 10:10 

The Forever Valentine 

 

Will you be My Valentine?

I gave my life for you

I bled and died upon that cross

to give you life brand new.

 

Will you be My Valentine?

I’ll wipe away your tears

I’ll bear your every burden

and comfort you in fear.

 

If you’ll be My Valentine

I’ll be forever yours,

together for eternity

I’ve opened Heaven’s doors.

“Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you.” 

Hebrews 13:5 

Paid in Full

Cross and Nails

Two crisscrossed tree limbs

three sharp nails

that held His body there

 

He shed His blood

on Calvary’s Mount

to show how much He cares

 

The pain He bore

was all for us

He sacrificed His life

 

For our home in Heaven

a life everlasting

He paid the ultimate price

Perfect Love

Perfect Love

 

More than enough

His love for me

He holds me close

Welcomes me back when I flee

 

He cleansed my soul

It’s white like snow

His grace is unending

Like a fountain it flows

 

On the Cross

He bled and died

He gave His life

In exchange for mine

 

A glorious Savior

His perfect love

One day I’ll join Him

In Heaven above

Cleansed

image

He’s living water
bread of life,
the perfect, sinless lamb

His cleansing blood
will set you free
you need only call on Him

He’ll take you in
with open arms
He’ll wash your garments white

Your sin erased
a life brand new,
A beacon of His light

Broken Pieces

Broken and scattered
each piece has a story
My life was a mess
but could still bring You glory

You picked up my pieces
Your grace became glue,
Your blood cleansed my sins,
made me shiny and new.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come; the old has gone, the new has come!”

~2 Corinthian 5:17

In My Place

image

A perfect love upon the cross
He bled and died for me
He bore my sin and cleared my name
His suffering set me free

A crown of thorns pressed in His head
Blood running down His face
The punishment that I deserved
He took it in my place

At Your Feet

At Your feet

I lay my burdens

I drop each trial, fear, and shame

 

At Your feet

My pain is lifted

Peace comes when I speak Your name

 

On the cross

You died for me

You shed Your blood to save my soul

 

So at Your feet

I humbly bow

It’s in Your presence I become whole.

Hidden in You

Colossians 3

Hidden in You

 

If they don’t know my name

but see Your light in my eyes

feel Your love in my touch

see Your work in my life

 

Then nothing else matters,

nameless I’ll stay

I live for Your glory

To bring Your name praise

 

Keep me hidden in You

wrap me in Your love

use my life to point others

to the Savior, above.

Through God’s Eyes

Mercy

Sin’s heavy burden,

The guilt and shame,

Your pillow stained with tears

 

The sleepless nights,

Your countless prayers,

Seemingly unanswered, does He hear?

 

Your past, He’s forgotten

Those sins? He’s erased

Each tear you shed, He’ll dry

 

Loved and forgiven,

Accepted and worthy,

That’s how you look through God’s eyes.

“So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature. So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins. He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit.”

~Romans 8:1-4 (NLT)
