the Testament of Gods Power

It was God that gave me life
It was him that put me on this earth
And to him I shall one day return

The earth is a lonely place
Separated so far from God
A distance farther than the reaches of the universe
A distance that brings about skepticism

And yet the God of the world still reaches to us
As easily as the wind picks up the fallen leaf
We are picked up
We are set upon solid ground
We are loved and led by God

One day I will go to his kingdom
One day I will dine with Jesus
Whether that day come in life
Or on my dying day
And I will smile as the world passes me by
And I go to the better place

It was God that gave me my heart
And it was Jesus that died for my sins
He freed me from the chains of sins
And nothing can separate me from the one true God

He gave me a place on this world
He gave me a purpose to live
And I shall live for God and make that purpose a reality

Nothing on this world or any other shall separate me from his embrace
He has the unbreakable hold
And I am his
The testament of his power shall ring through the atmosphere
Like the church bells ringing
And that wondrous choir of angels voices
When the shout of his name comes from the lips of the believer
He shall be recognized as no Idol can be
And the people will fall at Jesus feet
Laying their crowns before him in awe of his presence
And the testament of his power shall be shown

he shall come again

The satisfaction
The happiness
All the laughter

In what successes we accomplish
The joy of something knew and complete takes over
We can walk as though we are on air
Knowing that another trial has passed
And we can look to something knew

Never do we anything alone
We belong to a wonderful and beautiful group
And the Group we belong to belongs to God

Through God we can do all things
And in Gods name we can live marvelous lives
To live as his children and to be his messengers
Gods children are who we are made to be
And some day the whole world will resound in the cry of Jesus name

So dance for Joy in the knowledge that one day he will return
Don't fear to speak your faith
the strength of the holy spirit is inside
Bring out the hymn inside of you
For the time to rejoice is now
Jesus Saves every day
And one day we will all go home with him

What do we Say other than Praise Your Name

God my amazing God
King of kings
Lord of lords
You are my ruler in this world
And the next

You are the God I doubted
You are the God who is changing hearts
And raising your children lovingly

I fear no more
And I will open my mouth to speak for you
Lifting my heart in your name
I am amongst your people now and forever

I shall have no fears with you in me
And I will let you lead the way
Because without you I am blind

No person survives alone
But in others we find you
And in you we find strength

I accept you and love you

Live, Love, and Learn

Two steps forward one step back
two young lovers
one all for less
we search, we try
we go for the top
we fall we cry

why do we pick ourselves up
when we fall
to live our lives out to the fullest
to pick ourselves back up
to learn what we can while we stand
our falls just postpone the knowledge that will one day come

we live by the rules our logic
and we love by the rules of our hearts
our spiritual being is the definition of what makes us whole
we cannot be ourselves on our own
we are defined by the people around us
molded and formed into a piece of art by the  people around us

we live to learn how to live properly
we love with our hearts
so we may learn to love unwaveringly
we learn to live love and try through our distractions
