Fight the Good Fight

What is right?
Is my life built on a rock?
What is wrong?
In a whirl, life seems to go faster everyday
What do I love?
If it weren't for God, I would fall in every which way
What should I stand up for?
Time spins
The bell buzzes like a bee
Always ringing in my ear
The second hand seems to tick faster everyday
Spiraling, I keep spinning
Oh how I need Jesus to help me
I need His love to guide me when there is no light
I need to carry his candle when it is dark
I must read His Word
In a whirl, my life goes
Am I coming?
I should stop and prepare for war
Am I going?
I must study His life manual
Will I try to do it all on my own strength?
Or will I rely on God that's living inside of me?
The one who will never leave me nor forsake me
So I can know how to use my two-edged sword
I fight the good fight of faith with God on my side
The light is my Father
For His breath and love letter guide my crooked steps
They lead me unto the way everlasting
Into the light of day
My night time becomes as bright as the sun
I follow the light
I take up the sword
Fighting the good fight of faith
Pursuing love, godliness, and righteousness
Are you prepared for war?
With God and His Word, we will experience victory
Fight the good fight of faith!!

Loud Silence

I stand there by the creek
Watching my reflection in the waters below
My barefeet run through the meadow
Silence all around
Yet it seems to speak so loud
Sitting on a pew in an empty church
I feel Your presence
I hear Your voice
How could I ever say anything?
Anything in this loud silence to describe
How that I feel when I hear you silently speak?
The horse gallops down the field
I can't keep my feet from dancing
When I open my mouth to say something
About what happened
No words will roll off my tongue
All that is there to explain what I felt
Is silence that speaks so loud to me
Louder than anything I could ever say
How can I ever thank You enough
For speaking so loud to me?
Yet I heard it through the silence of the fluttering butterfly
When the ocean tide rolled in and back out again
When the sun set beyond the horizon
What can I do?
Oh, what can I say?
I never knew that silence could make me feel this way

Divine Goal

It is all falling apart
He doesn't know where to start
Cause it is breaking his heart
Yet God is with him
He will help him see
Though his world is ripping away
Jesus is all he can see
His eyes stay steadily on the goal
And when he plays the piano
Tears trickle down and hit the keys
Picks up his guitar
And keeps on praising God
With his blue heart
He can't see the reason for all the hurt
Yet God sees beyond his stubborn heart
He showed him the divine goal
Just need to keep his eyes on it
Don't wander tired eyes
Stay focused on your light
God is speaking to him
Whispering words of life to him tonight
Saying, "My child, everything will be alright."
That is when the young man experienced a taste of heaven
He saw God's angels watching over him
While he sang his heart away
Finally saw in God's shining door
God gave peace divine
Seen the evil in this place
And he knows that Jesus is his only answer
Jesus is stronger than any problem he will face in life
Anything can happen to him
But he chooses to keep his eyes looking up to God
His focus is set on the divine goal
God's angels watch over his soul
Although all of life's strife seems unfair
He knows his Savior truly does care

I can't open the door
Only God and He will
I can't close the door
It's not like I had planned
But I know that it is all in His hand
What happens when you believe in something,
But fear seems to dominate?
Is that when fear and faith collide?
It's like all your feelings are lost in fear.
Yet, it is then that you realize that you are not alone.
Something makes you do it anyway.
Your faith shines over you fear,
Leading to an open door with so much more
It all starts with God opening and closing doors
So we can praise Him only more
I want my lifesong to be written and sung by God himself
If we glorify God in everything we do,
Then nothing can be impossible with Him.
So, I choose to never give up
I won't back down
I am not holding back
I will not lose heart
God can do anything if we just believe
