Liar In Me

There’s a liar in me

In deep fantasies it sinks

My most desires

As if I don’t know

What better to choose from

From what the world gives

And what I receive from God

But he does know

Yet he keeps me in the shadow

Of what really has value

In my life

To serve God with all my heart

It takes the truth

And changes all

Creating false pretensions 

Of what is pleasing to God

When revealing truth

Shows that God’s way, not mine

Is the truth

But I let him stay

The liar inside of me 

Robbing my true joy everyday

The joy that comes from Him

I fight, but seems I can’t 

Win over a battle to live in truth

And not in lies

I sink deeply in sorrow of all that I wish

The liberty I no longer have

Since this liar in me came to abide

The precious presence of my Lord and king

I long for to find

Oh how I wish 

The liar would depart

To cast him out 

To live in light

Of the One who says always to me

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life

You can only come to the Father by me.

Fighting

I’ve been fighting with myself

Of how I’m supposed to act
If to act like a servant
Or like a wicked one
You may know the struggle
That I’m talking within
The one that draws the line
Between walking in holiness
Or drifting to sin
Where our spirit wants to be
Like Christ Himself
But our flesh take us away 
Going everywhere else
What should I do in this dilema of life?
When I want to serve and act
Like Christ
But the circumstance of hurt and pain
Bring us to a place 
Where we want to explode in uncivil ways
That is the moment I stand still
I choose to trust and kneel
Where only my prayer 
Is the sure thing I need
To keep walking like Christ
And to His Word heed…

Thoughts…

In the silence of a voice much of all is told…

The cry from deep in the soul…

Reaches out to God… 

The only one that knows…

The one in control…

Who knows the best…

Who knows ALL…

That Moment

That moment
Where I see things different
Where I notice the spark
Revelation from divine
Where Christ’s light shines
Oh how He opens our eyes!
To see what we didn’t see
Clouded by all the turmoil within

It’s that moment
When I realize
The pain and suffering
Changed something in my life
I see all clear inside of me
All the lies of the enemy I believed
And now with the truth
My soul receives freedom
My heart fills with peace
I don’t longer see the pain as a burden
But a lesson to keep
That what God does
Is always better for me

It’s that moment
That I can rejoice with praise
God shows why is worth the pain
To surrender our wishes and dreams
For what He has is greater
Than now we can see
Walking in the path of Christ
That in every situation
His light may shine

Gratitude

I have held on to You
Trusting all the promises
All the things You said you will do
In my wait
I breath your peace
I see Your work in me
Even through tough times
You have been strengthening me
I express deep gratitud
To my God
The Almighty

It’s Time

It’s time to let go
It’s time to advance
To push foward
Over all circumstance
To find the happiness within
The joy that Christ brings
It’s time to forget
To stop the regrets
To focus on future events
It’s time to be free
From prisons within
From all that has hurt
No past can be changed
Just the future we have
To receive what God has
Given to us to enjoy our lives
It’s just that time
To start over and live
To not pity ourselves in
Accepting the peace
Jesus promised to give
Just enjoy what we have
The greatest gift of life
The assurance of salvation
Through Jesus Christ, Eternal Life

The Voice

Listen to the voice
The one you hear call
Speaking to your soul
Is not your conscious
Is the voice of God
Yes, the strong one
The one you struggle with
Trying to the way lead
And you keep shutting it
You keep pretending to be deaf
Than surrender to Him who wants best
The harm is not on God
The harm is on you
Struggling alone
Carrying the burden
Of things you can’t resolve
How long is it going to be?
Till you realize the pain
You’re choosing to bare
Could be taken away
If you give Him all your despair.

Pain & Healing

images-5

I am slowly dealing with all the pain that was caused
By a silent attack that destroyed my soul
I have yet understood this stealth act
If it was truly hidden or I to myself lied
Did I lie to not open my eyes?
I think it was more comfortable the darkness in which I abide
So comfortable in imagination I lived
That when my eyes where opened the light destroyed me
It penetrated my soul like a spear
No defense did I find to go near.
Now I am slowly picking my scattered pieces
In the midst of the carefulness to remove the spear
I cannot explain how now I feel
Is a mix of the pain and a hope unreal
The pain that cause me almost to expire
But a hope that I will be healed in the entire
Does that make sense?
It surely won’t in the human laws
But my healing will only come from above
From Him who knew pain like no other of us
With His love I am learning now
The pain that almost killed me He is turning around
I will trust Him even in the pain
He will heal me fully; I will rise again

Day II – Fragile

20130305-164438.jpg

On this day I have realized how fragile I am.

How fragile one is! No matter how strong willed you are your fragility will show from moment to moment. The wonderful thing is knowing that the strength of God will fill us in the most fragil moments of our lives. Today remember God knows that we are going to break at one moment or another. The difference is in our decision if we lay our stressed hearts and soul in His wonderful hands. He knows how to keep us strong even in our fragile nature.
