Repentance

June 30th, 2012

I repent, Lord, for I realize the error of my ways,
Despite recognition before my sinful tendencies want to stay.
So although this repentance is one of many that have been and shall come,
The willingness my old self has to back track never ceases to stun.

My safety nets have torn, my wonderwall collapsed,
Yesterday’s redemption fades away as my addictions relapse.
There are times when my resistance fails and seems weakened for the next attack,
But maybe I’m realizing your supernatural power is what I lack.

When focused on you with my eye on the goal,
I excel, everything is well, and I feel whole.
It is only when my eyes divert and my ears deter,
From the wise counsel and sense of Your word.

O’ Lord, create in me a clean heart.
I probably have a record for the most false starts.
But oh Lord I am a sinful man for being blind despite being given sight,
For questioning the morals I know to be right.

My vision seems clouded, so let the Sun penetrate through,
Provide for me manna when I try to supply my own food.
I need not your superior knowledge to recognize my short comings,
I need not to be told I have no sensation when I feel numbing.

I need someone to hear my prayers and give me wise instruction,
I need supernatural intervention before I become my own destruction.
I need You, O’ Lord,
I need You, and nothing more.

Sinful Man

June 26th, 2012

Oh my Lord I am a sinful man,
But I promise I’m doing all I can.
To leave my old ways behind me,
And let love shine from me brightly.

But my old self just doesn’t like letting go,
Of the fact that you are the star of the show.
It’s a change of heart and a change of mind,
It’s discovering the gem that some spend their lives trying to find.

I’ve been born again and given a chance to live for,
So much more than we could have wasted our lives living for.
Sometimes I need rescuing from myself before you,
But slowly my night is being intruded by your hue.

I wanna be a light for you,
I wanna die to myself.
Let my heart melt in your presence,
Because I wanna be a light for you.

upside down Kingdom

June 26th, 2012

I preach for the stars, with words as empty as my heart.
Calling on your grace to give your bride a new start.
Now that unity is a priority, as it should have always been,
Suddenly our loving attitudes have meaning.

Oh Lord you have opened our hearts and mind,
To the darkened areas of service to which we were blind.
At times we choose to love although we don’t like,
In this upside down Kingdom that none other is alike.

For now awakening has come in the morning,
After the pain caused by the night’s mourning.
We realise the error of our ways,
And call once again on your saving grace,

That we so heavily relied on before the light was realised,
And we shall continue to rely on as your Church of faith arises.

The time is now

June 26th, 2012

There’s songs arising from these burnt lips,
Emotion from the unprecedented kiss.

There’s talents being realised,
Sinful ways pushed aside.

There’s saints uprising,
Finding serving appetizing.

There’s a youth denying convention,
Saints serving a sinner’s detention.

There’s a guilty World turning back,
On the apocalypse we nearly had.

There’s a generation awakened,
Death’s sting taken.

There’s a time for dreams to come true,
On the horizon’s hue.

There’s a time for dream to become reality,
And time is now.

Insignificance

June 26th, 2012

We humans feel we have to have some purpose and effect as mere ants in this Universe, otherwise our fear of insignificance becomes truth.
