Redeemed

 

Do you remember when the world started to become a mess?

 

I can digress

 

Remember when Jesus Christ died for us?

 

My flesh, I detest

 

How many people in this world died for Him?

 

They died with Jesus Christ on their lips

 

Their last breaths were prayers to Him

 

Whereas I can’t even get a confession out to Him

 

Do you remember, God?

 

Those long years were so hard

 

Trust me, I’ve seen

 

God, why did you let them touch me?

 

Didn’t you hear me screaming?

 

My body still feels like its burning

 

All those nights

 

Contemplating suicide

 

Oh, how I wanted to die

 

But God you knew what you had in store for me

 

That pain in me

 

You wanted me to use my pain to help others

 

Those women who suffer

 

You knew I had a big heart

 

How do I even start?

 

I was so naïve

 

To think that God didn’t love me

 

But God knew what plan he had for me

 

The devil was slick enough to get inside of me

 

To get me to resent the creator who made me

 

Can I win?

 

The devil always trying to fight within

 

God, do you hear me?

 

I am trying not to be so weak

 

The kids around me always tryin’ to pick on me

 

Never ending

 

Could they see?

 

The potential that God saw in me?

 

I bet it was the devil tryin’ to get at me

 

Destroy me

 

Cuz he saw a light in me

 

Jesus, why do you love me?

 

Do you really want me?

 

Ain’t I obscene?

 

I need to be redeemed

 

Truly, God you know more than I

 

What plans you have

 

They’re hidden in my eyes

 

I know I keep messin up

 

Why can’t I live up?

 

To what Jesus did

 

I can’t even fathom

 

My Christ, He is so glorious

 

While the devil is notorious

 

He’ll try to ruin me

 

But my God will protect me

 

Can’t the demons see?

 

See, they try to grab me

 

But now I know they don’t have to have me

 

I can pray

 

Look, even my enemies run in shame

 

I may be a sinner

 

But, I don’t gotta let that define me

 

I’m a winner

 

Just try me

 

Fools, be trying to persecute me

 

They even try to hurt me

 

Now they be hatin’ even more

 

Now that Jesus is my Lord

 

They keep rollin’ up for more

 

But I know that Jesus got my back

 

They all think I’m whack

 

But now look who’s on crack

 

Can’t even fathom that

 

Man, get your life on track

 

Just cuz you don’t know how to act

 

Doesn’t mean you gotta pull me back

 

Don’t you know?

 

Jesus got my back

 

I’ve been redeemed because Jesus Christ lives in me!

 

Yeah, you heard me!

 

Jesus Christ lives in me

 

I am free

 

The world doesn’t have to define me!

 

The drugs, they don’t even appeal to me

 

Before Christ, I use to be a mess

 

Men always using me for sex

 

Pregnancy scares

 

Man, can’t believe I would dare!

 

It was a living nightmare

 

But even through all of that God still cared

 

Lost friends left and right

 

Didn’t care who I’d fight

 

I didn’t even care if I died

 

Just lyin’ to myself

 

Thinking this was hell

 

While as God sent help

 

Through my brother

 

He was a huge help

 

Never gave up on me

 

He inspired me to see God differently

 

I thank God every day

 

For changing my brother to the man who he is today

 

It’s hard to say

 

Express what I say

 

My pride is always getting in the way

 

Lord, your plan is working perfectly

 

The people I am meeting

 

Disciples

 

They are a blessing

 

I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me

 

The devil in me is slowing diminishing

 

The Jesus in me

 

Takin ahold of me

 

God, do you remember?

 

Jesus Christ redeemed me

 

now, I am FREE

My life and how I got redeemed

Carnal Minds

Carnal Minds

There was a time henceforth when I had ten thousand dollars to spare
Happy with what the Lord hath already blessed me with, I decided to share
Having no need for the money I called two local men to mine house
Rumor had it the second man had the reputation of a cheat and a louse

The first man whose name was Greed, came in and sat near as could be
Behind him was a man named Wisdom, but he sat far, as he smiled at me
I told them both that I had five thousand dollars to give to each
Then said Greed, "give it here now!" as he leaned closer so as to reach

While I counted the money I looked upon wisdom's silence as wise indeed
For I knew he was patient, and of life's carnality he did heed
I counted aloud the words "Five thousand" and then quickly did Greed snatch away
His half of the money, so in life's pleasures he could foolishly play

I looked up expecting a gracious word of thanks from the greedy wretch
But he was already gone without a word; it was Satan's lures he did fetch
Then I looked over at my friend Wisdom, who was never reeled in by Satan's lure
He always appreciated the life that the Lord hath given him which in itself was pure

A very uplifting man that always a smile for me and all that did pass by
For he was happy knowing our Lord whom graciously arose in the sky
I handed him his share and he quietly tucked it away
Then he went on about his business until a later day

A week later Greed ran Wisdom's old wagon off of the road with his new car
As he laughed about wisdom spreading his money to the poor afar
Then without notice the man in the sky did call
He said “The books are open, now come one, now come all!”

Greed waited in line continually bragging about his carnal things
Until he learned that he had traded them for his heavenly wings
He went to a place not fit for a man as he looked up at Wisdom flying by
He pleaded "Just one sip of water I beg you bring me from a cloud up in your sky"

Wisdom smiled and said "Dear friend, I stored my money in Gods eternal bank"
It was your earthly treasures that did demote you to a sergeant in Satan's rank
It was only yesterday that you passed a starving woman in your car so nice
I stopped in my tracks, gave her food and shelter, I didn't have to think twice

Now I am here with her in paradise, the place the Lord set aside
For those with a conscience and a heart, who in his laws did abide
Though I did have a thirst for life's carnal things
I knew that I couldn't fly up here without my precious wings

Speak to me no more from the pits of Hell
For justice is served, and I chose well!

This one is scarey... Beware!

Poem to Jesus

How i long to see you face to face
to look into your loving eyes
to feel your warm embrace
and take a pick in paradise...

Oh, come and visit me
i am waiting for you every day
in person or maybe in a dream
appear to me which ever way...

Dear Jesus i'm desperate for You
I'm waiting for you every day
with my whole heart i love You
You are my only way!..

Father have proven

and i'm the victim

 

chaos and hatred are on my way

Numen please sanctify my heart

Reviving Insight

looking up as my redemption draws nigh, running the race it seems that my pace is falling shy. Im trying everyday to remain tame, to refrain from shame, by the end of the day I'm confused and spiritually drained. 

Reaching deep down inside my core for the power I had before but its empty theres nothing more than self willed motivation waging war for the title to my hearts door, there you will see Jesus knocking and pleading bold persistence, the flesh is cold and offers only stubborn resistance, seek Jesus and be relieved of spiritual ignorance or desire the flesh and have a meaningless existence. 

Pick one or the other because you can't have it all and Jesus is pleading His blood and catching me when I fall, the other side offers distraction from the divine call. 

Please Jesus listen and hear me when I yell, I never left you my son its you who tripped and fell. Im always near you and I'm here to redeem your life, claim isaiah 41:10 and then you'll regain your sight.

when you call I will heed and come to your need on the mercy seat I will bleed and then you will be freed. 

I am the way the truth and life give yourself to me my son and come out of the night, come back to the light your not alone in this spiritual war-fight. 

when you are feeling down, sad or wanting heaven thats when you claim psalms 28:7, or drop to your knees and speak psalms 42:11. 

When you can't overcome and you want to be freed, utter the holy words from john 16:33 the bible will open your eyes so once again you can see. 

Jesus knows me when I sit and when I stand up and He's the only one that can truly fill my cup." -Andrew Fields

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This is a glimpse of the spiritual struggle with my flesh in contrast to the awesome power of God.

Jesus in the Shade

The men build temples for God. 

The women look to see.

Jesus is in the shade. 

"Leave me be. Leave me be."

Such A Love As His

 


Such A Love As His

 

Upon a  wooden Cross, He hung,

He knew it was His predestination,

That He die for crimes, He did not commit,

To save us all, from sin's damnation.

 

Willingly, He stretched out His arms,

And took those nails, instead of you and me.

Wiping away, all of our falls from Grace,

As He died there, upon that rugged tree.

 

There's only one way, we can repay Him-

In giving Him, our own heart for redemption.

And in an instant of, His flawless Love,

He gives us each, His pure exemption.


For such a Love as His, is timeless,

And comes with no limit, nor any end.

Because no one has ever, loved me like,

My Lord Jesus...My Truest Friend.
