9-22-15 On Addiction

Jesus-Saves

14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

James 1:14-15 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

We’ve all been tempted; still we’re tempted now

For Satan pays attention to our lusts.

Then when we fall and break most every vow,

His demons ride our shame, feed our disgust.

Then like a horror movie sin’s revived

As if it will not die by force or will,

Until your prayers seem wooden and contrived,

And then when you give up death has its fill.

Cry out unto the Lord though you feel dead,

And pray until your tears have soaked the ground.

He leads you to the help you need ahead;

Just trust in Jesus – grace much more abounds.

It seems like all is lost; don’t be deceived.

Salvation comes to those who first believed.

2-3-15 He Hears You

A-Prayer-For-You

Incline to Heaven both your head and heart;

It matters not the place or circumstance.

The only thing that counts is that you start;

A dialogue with God’s not happenstance.

The Lord is listening to every prayer

Regardless if you form a single word;

The groanings of your soul He is aware,

The achings of your heart have all been heard.

You think that God is mum – don’t be deceived!

He’s talking to you now; don’t use your ears.

He answers every prayer that you’ve conceived.

Just practice listening; your spirit hears.

The Lord receives your prayers both large and small

He loves to hear you talk to Him at all.

~~~~~~~~~~~

The LORD hath heard my supplication;

the LORD will receive my prayer.

Psalm 6:9 KJV

9-9-14 Restoration

restoration

Conceived into a realm of sin and pain

There was no hope for me until His call.

I recognized my Shepherd’s telling strain,

Releasing my poor soul from evil’s caul.

Sometimes I leave the straight and narrow way,

Distracted by temptation’s bright allure,

And when I realize I’ve gone astray

My Shepherd then restores my soul for sure.

He turns me from the darkness into light;

His steady love revives me when I doubt.

Despite my roaming ways He sets me right

And through His grace my faith becomes devout.

            When He renews my spirit I become

            A bright example of His Kingdom come.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

He restoreth my soul

Psalm 23:3 KJV
