Battle for My Heart

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be.  –Matthew 6:21

Battle for My Heart

In this world day by day
Wanting so much more
Praying for the Lord to come
Awaiting what’s in store

At times my heart gets derailed
Sometimes I lose my way
Temptation beckons on my hearts door
I try so hard not to stray

Money, power, lust, greed
This world thinks very highly of
Grace, mercy, love, and joy
Belong to the LORD above

Get behind me selfish thoughts
Fall away illusions of dust
You are only temporary
Soon reduced to piles of rust

Hope, peace, eternal life
This is what I prize
Let the song of my heartstrings
Take to the challenge and rise

Be My Comfort

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us,
so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures
we might have hope. –Romans 15:4

Be My Comfort

I am laid low in the dust
My soul is weary with sorrow
Take away the disgrace I dread
May Your unfailing love be my comfort

My soul faints with longing for Your salvation
My eyes fail, looking for Your promise
I have suffered much
Save me for I am Yours

Rivers of water run down from my eyes
Trouble and anguish have overtaken me
Consider my affliction and deliver me
Plead my cause and redeem me

Let my cry come before You O LORD
Let Your hand become my help
Though the wicked bind me with ropes
Deliver me according to Your word

My comfort in my suffering is this
Your promise preserves my life
For You have given me hope
Uphold me and I will be delivered
