Phil 2: 5-11 Lenten Day 40

Servant he became
In the likeness of men
He humbled Himself

And obedient unto death
All confess Jesus is Lord

the scripture for yourself.

Your Desires Deserve

Why are you making it so hard
Keeping your lonely heart on guard
You want to get me down on my knees
To help you decide to become free

I’m too tired to try and play the game
Tit for tat is never quite the same
It’s time to come down on your own
Off your towering self-absorbed throne

This is our last chance before I leave
Let me turn back for you to see
Here I am giving my hand and heart
Your desires deserve a new start

Mark 10: 32-34, 46-52 Lenten Day 39

His time has arrived
He shall be delivered up
Condemned to death

The blind man asks for his sight
And his faith had made him whole

Phil 2: 13-18 Lenten Day 38

God worketh in you
To do of his good pleasure
Both in front and back

Be blameless and harmless
Shine as lights in the world

Holding Hands

 

Hiding in shadows I whispered aloud
With the idea of opening the clouds
I crossed into the light ready to be seen
Letting you know that the light’s now green

I’ve wanted to bring light into my day
In hopes that you’ll listen to what I say
There’s nothing worse than being alone
Or being the one who had to be shown

Phil 2: 1-11 Lenten Day 37

Do nothing through strife
Be like minded through Christ Jesus
Become obedient

Let every tongue confess
That Jesus Christ is Lord

Black Sheep

I look at you now and all I want to do is weep
Open your eyes and see that your life is cheap
Look at this guy who treats you like black sheep
It’s no wonder why all you do is want to sleep
