admitting we are wrong

admitting we are wrong

admitting we are wrong
seeking God's wisdom
a good look in the mirror
not blaming others
making needed changes
starting with ourselves.

speaking your light - v4

speaking your light - v4



Speaking your light

your love, your forgiveness;

Sharing this great joy

this change growing within me.



Not being timid, silent,

not fearful, hiding this blessing;

Sharing your love, my joy,

with the world, now forgiven.

not hidden, timid,

shining your life

through our changed lives.

sharing your love

your mercy, your forgiveness

offering others a way

to your loving heart.

wanting to know you - v2

wanting to know you - v2

wanting to know you
more deeply, completely,
wanting to have you
in more of our lives.

drawing closer
reading holy scriptures
seeking to feel you
right by our side.

wanting to know you
fully, completely
trusting only in you
Almighty God.

drawing closer
nearer and nearer
sensing your presence
as near as breath.

worth the fight - v2


worth the fight, the effort,
our continuing struggle
between our flesh, the spirit,
taking up the Book, our cross,
fulfilling our divine purpose
our part in God's plan.

worth the fight, the effort,
putting in our time, the work
seeking to change, to serve,
not in fear but in victory
not overwhelmed by the storms
the continuing lies of this world.
