Forgiveness

Forgiveness

This sure rings a bell for me.

I tried so many times to find forgiveness for me, and just couldn’t find it being so self-convicted.

God’s told me I’ve done nothing wrong and He has forgiven me.

But I’ve had this repeated conversation with our Lord God Almighty for 22 years.

I’ve carried this self -conviction that long.

Time for healing I believe.

 

Forgiveness

Forgive my heart,
for my mind did sin.

For to temptation,
it did give in.

But not my heart,
true to you it did stay!

So why for my minds mistake,
should it pay?

Not through my actions,
but through my thoughts, I did wrong.

If you must, blame my weak mind,
for not being strong.

But not my heart,
true to you it did stay.

And I could not bear,
to be turned away.

For any action, my mind did make,
in no way, did my heart partake.

In my mind one’s faults,
one’s errors or mistakes.

If you must displease my mind,
for what it did make.

But not my heart when  
all it’s done is love you.

Desires Within Me

Desires Within Me

There are no regrets without you,
without us; for today never ends.

There are no tomorrow’s without you,
just ends left untied.

There are no boundaries to seek,
just love to be shared with each other.

There are no lies to hide,
only questions unasked.

There are no secrets to hide,
only sincerities from our heart’s.

Sanctuary

Sanctuary
To my daughter,
Tiphanie Dawnette.

Crawl into my sanctuary,
and leave this world behind.
Open your heart and let me in,
then close the door of your mind.
Wrap yourself in my blanket,
as dark as the ocean’s deep.
Your tears gently sparkle,
like diamonds while you weep.
I will hold you tightly,
protect you from all that is wrong.
And when you long for comfort,
I will bring you a Phoenix’s song.
Don’t cry my flightless Angel,
your Halo still shines so bright.
Together we will find your wings,
and soon you will be in flight.
So to night, please be peaceful,
I know you are feeling weary.
So rest, wrapped up in my blanket,
inside my sanctuary.
Tiphanie:
I love you more today,
more than I did yesterday.
And I will love you even more tomorrow!

Me, A Servant

Me, A Servant

My what an honor today,

that I serve Jesus.

To take His loving hand,

please show me the way.

He opened my eyes,

allowed me to see.

He blew life in my lungs,

He brought me to breathe.

It was in nick of time,

I wouldn’t have it any other way.

You took me from that storm,

that thrashed me away.

You brought Peace in me now,

I’ll never live without.

Your my center of my world,

I’ll give it a shout..

I have more Love for You,

that one person can give.

My what a pleasure it is,

that You live within.

I was foolish in the first place,

not to be with You.

I love You more today Lord,

more than I did yesterday too.
