The day or night is tough
All I do seems wrong
What is after me?
I feel sad and lonely

Then I stop and think
I turn to Christ’s Word
Help me I plea
I know that I am heard

Soon, very soon
My heart and soul respond
His Word is true
Jesus watches out for me

I get to know the Lord
I think of Him
As I walk and live
His Word is in my heart

I have needs
Only He can meet
He sees my soul
And comforts me

His strength is great
His love destroys hate
What I need He gives
Jesus hears me


Ps 112:1 Praise the LORD! How blessed is the man who fears the LORD, Who greatly delights in His commandments.

I want God in my life. I recognize the brevity and tenuousness of life. I have experienced first hand the results of making a poor decision. I want God in my life.

Only I can cultivate the awareness of God in me. It takes intentional thinking. It requires that I get serious about what I am saying to the Lord and that I will take time to listen to Him.

Everything I do must have room for the Lord. What I cannot share with the Lord Jesus potentially has the earmarks of self and sin. When I am obsessed with Jesus nothing else can grab my attention. An obsession with the Lord will be an effective, aggressive activity that combats loneliness, worry, tribulation and addictions.

When I am focused on Jesus I am equipped with a strong defense against the assaults of evil.

HAVE COURAGE-Ephesians 4:13

Stand where you are
Do not bemoan your luck
You are a creation
For good and God’s work

Know that you are beloved
A servant of the Christ
Able to live in joy
You represent the KING

Fighting for the Gospel
Involves great trust
You can’t see the future
And will suffer with us

Remember you’re a visitor
Not here for very long
God is your Father
Heaven is your home

The world condemns your courage
It says grab the gold
Gold is used for streets
Where eternity roams

Telling why you’re faithful
Retelling God’s goal
Puts you in the circle
With Heaven’s boldest souls

Tell and keep on telling
The harvest is for Christ
Courage brings you closer
To the Cross of Jesus Christ


The ways of the Lord are right
Include me in them
Letting Christ control
Giving me His might

I am His to use
His way is complete
Giving me His strength
The Eternal blessing me

The future’s just a cloud
The Father sees it clear
His path gives me grace
The cloud is displaced

Every time I stumble
It’s time to repent
The way is given
His Words are heaven sent

Compounding all my issues
Is wisdom from the world
Am I, Did He confuses
His Word is always sure

Now the day is dawning
I can walk by faith
Faith that Christ still loves me
No matter what comes today


Is required of you
To grow
And be like Christ

Every day is riddled
With sin’s active advice
So that you
Must get before Christ

Live a Holy Life
Ignore the world’s advice
Bend the knee to Christ
And obey His words to you

Time is required
Alone before the Lord
His Word in you
As He listens to you

Speak to the Lord
About your hurts and sin
Ask Him to cleanse
Commit to not sin again

Failure will come
Run to Christ
Forgiveness can win
Ask His advice again

Remember who you are
That Christ died for you
The world doesn’t love you
It only wants a slave

It is a daily life
To be like Christ
Requiring you to change
To live a Holy Life

Come to Jesus
Ask Him true
Forgive my sin
Save me for You

Build in me
Eternal life
It’s a gift
To deal with strife

Know Jesus
He is the way
Ask Him in
Now, today

All the world
Wants its rule
Bending the knee
Is refused as the way

You can have
Life in Christ
It’s your choice
It’s your life

It’s up to you
What will you do?
Choose the Lord
Let Him have you


It’s a rough road
When you’re alone
All that trouble
No one home

The past is full
Of if I could
The future bleak
I never would

Conscience screams
You are lost
The world is evil
You’ve paid your cost

Change is gone
You will never count
Forget the good
You’re self bound

Foolish thoughts
Actions dumb
I cannot think
Of when I’ve won

Then Jesus comes
To fill your life
He brings with Him
Strength and a heart

You can win
You should you know
Your life is His
Your way He chose

Victory within
Begins right now
The Lord of life
Will show you how

Every day He lives in you
To build your life
To see you through
Knowing Jesus is life


Life is hard
Don’t forget
Bumps and bruises
Typify it

Christ in you
Is victory
Your life is His
In Him you win

Claim His Word
It’s written to you
7,000 promises
To see you through

He knows the things
That gets your goat
Bend your knee
Ask for hope

And when you sin
Confess to Him
I was wrong
Please come in

Ask Him for
This moment’s strength
He will change your thoughts
He will fight your sin

Be of God
Walk His way
Change those things
That hurt you today

And when you change
Your strength will grow
Surrender all
And Christ you will know


In the Lord
I find my strength
To deal with life
To live like Christ

He is Lord
He rules my life
I seek His face
I ask His advice

What Christ says
I hear and do
His change in me
Will bless you

The value of
God’s victory
Is from
The pain I knew

Pain of hurt
That stalked my path
Calling me
In failure’s plea

Now I live
Christ in me
Giving me
My victory
