My Salvation Story

What did this mean and what if it’s true?
Jesus was God’s Son, I believed too!

Buried in baptism, my sins washed away
I was raised from the water to live a new life
With His Spirit inside me, forever my guide

Good News!

Let Me tell you a story
Come, lend an ear
I see that you’re searching
The web far and near
While sharing your secrets
Your failures and fears
Looking for answers
Through eyes filled with tears

I want you to know
I AM here with you
Aware of the struggles
And pain you go through
I’ve witnessed your choices
Consequences too
I’m longing to help
Come, see what I do
Continue reading

But God Chose

But You chose
The foolish things of this world
And You chose
The weak in this world, too
And You chose
The lowly things, discarded
And You chose
To call me near to You Continue reading

Please don’t be mad at God
Because of what I did
Don’t turn away from Him
Because of things I said
I was someone you looked up to
But got tangled up in sin
Don’t blame Him!
Don’t blame Him! Continue reading

Let nothing move you
Always give yourself fully
