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.

Nothing

I waited
For nothing to come
Not even the wind
Was bringing forth
Any hope; any joy
Barren land I’m in 
Where the truth is not seen
Lies take away my peace
Help Lord! Please!
I need to sleep!
Recue me from this pit!
Tears keep rolling
I’m waiting for happiness to stop them
And truth to dry them up
But what truth am I waiting for?
The patched up?
The ones with a facade? 
Hiding the cruel reality inside
Do I want to know?
Is there any truth at all?
In men not at all
But of you, Christ, I recall
Saying You are the Way, Truth and Life

So in you my Lord, the living Truth, I will rely

A Love

I love you
Eventhough it hurts
All the pain
Did not blow my love away
It is still beating
Strong with each pulse
Strong love you don’t know
It is not human to love again
When wounds cover
Still opened in dismay
It is a love only from Divine
A love only given by JesusChrist
The love that trascended
Time and space
Overpassing any hurt and pain
A love given so freely to me
Even when I don’t succeed
I have the unconditional fountain of love
That is God in me

Speaking Heart

Let your heart speak
All that you hold within
The feelings that pressure
Forcing out the hidden treasure
Of who you are
Let your heart
Bring forth the words
Those never heard
Those you think insane
That many not understand
But I do
I want to hear them all
The essence of your soul
What’s beneath it all
Tell me, let me know
Don’t let shame stop you though
Theres no shame in truth
To say and to be you
To be honest and real
Your words are your appeal
To trust you more and more
Don’t let fear become a wall
Making silence great enemy in all
Impeding me to walk
With liberty in your life
How can I walk in the dark?
Is the light of your opened heart
That shines the trust path
Things have to be right
Let honesty and truth always abide
Then freedom will be your life
And everything will be alright

True Love

I will love you
More than you can comprehend
I will love you for ever
My love will never change

This I’ve tried to tell you
Oh, so many times
Tell you that I love you
No matter what you do, have done
No matter the circumstance

How can I be so sure
That this promise is true?
I am who created you
No one knows you like I do

My promise is unconditional
There is no limitation in it
Just a pureness of truth
That only I, your God have it

Your human mind cannot comprehend
The truth and reality
That is so great
I will be with you till the end

Trust Me, I tell you
You will see
If others do leave you
I will surely stay with thee

There is no other love
That can be like mine
My love has been prove
Sending my Son for you to die

Integrity

Job 2:9     Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast to your integrity? Curse God and die!”

Job 27:5  Far be it from me That I should say you are right; Till I die I will not put away my integrity from me.

What does integrity mean to you? We learn since early age what is honesty. We are drilled on the right things we have to always do, and the wrong things that always will bring forth a punishment. We are taught to be honest. But rarely were we taught to have integrity. What is the difference? What does it mean to have integrity before God? Are we being integral before God in all we do?

Honesty vs. Integrity

Honesty is truthfulness, sincerity or frankness – Its synonyms are integrity, probity, rectitude. When we are honest  truthfulness in all we do is our companion

Integrity is adherence to moral and ethical principle. It is the state of being whole, entire, or undiminished. Its synonyms are rectitude, probity, virtue. When we have integrity all we do is truthful, right and in accordance with our values.

Integrity of the world

It shows you can be trusted.  It shows you will do the right thing of what you are told.

Integrity before God

Is doing everything in accordance to God’s values stated in His Word.

When we look at integrity before God we have to see that is not only having the moral and ethical values that the Word of God gives us, but the major part is to follow, put in practice and maintain it in us over all types of circumstances that may come, even if people do not agree or the circumstances are not in our favor.

Integrity before God means we want and desire with all our hearts to honor Him, obey Him and serve Him in every way, circumstance and situation even the worst ones.

Is doing what God wants and is right in His eyes over what we think is right and is right to our convenience.

It is faithfulness to God – Job 2:3

Job was God’s faithful servant. On Job 1:3, God describes him as there being no other like him on earth. Do you imagine God saying that about you? Why was Job so special? God answered that saying that he was “perfect and upright.” Job’s faithfulness to God made him perfect and upright.

It is faith in action

When your integrity adheres to the Word of God, (which is your guidance) is maintained. You are using your faith put in action knowing that God is more important than anything else in your life. That every situation that come you decide to stay by His side than drift away from Him.

Your faith is shifted towards doing everything for His glory whether in word or action even in the worst times.

In Psalm 25:21 David expresses “Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.” David was calling to God while trouble surrounded him and ask God that integrity and uprightness preserve him. Why? Because David knew that if he maintained his integrity before God and kept obeying God over everything and doing what He commanded him instead of taking matters into his own hand, while he waited God will take care of the rest.

Our Integrity

We should keep faithful to the Word of God over everything and everyone.                                                                                        We should maintain our integrity before God in all situations even the ones that hurt us.

Maintain our trust, faith, service and gratitude above all things we will be able to say like Job 27:5 “God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.”
