CHICKEN

by mikeb

 

Rushing around like a headless chicken
Trying to do everything you can
To be a good Christian, be accepted
Proving that you have the job in hand.

CARING

by mikeb

 

Are you hanging on like mad
To someone that you know
Walking every step they walk
And feeling every blow
Are you trying to badger them
Into the life you crave
Surely you are getting tired
Or trying to be brave.

CLEAN

by mikeb

 

Jesus Christ was sinless
The only One so far
We as Christians stumble on
Trying to raise the bar
But we cannot serve two Gods
We have a choice to make
Do we love a fallen world
Or change for Jesus sake.

THE SUFFERING OF JESUS

by mikeb

 

Born into a world of anger
The rich and greedy ran
You came to help the leper
The poorest kind of man
Brought light into the darkness
And lived a simple life
You suffered, oh so greatly
In Your walk of toil and strife.

AS JESUS HUNG

by mikeb

 

As Jesus hung upon the Cross
Can you imagine how He felt
A man defiled by human hand
The worst of outcomes He was dealt
What was the point of all the pain
A separation from His Dad
The crowd was baying for His blood
Inside, He must have felt so sad.

GOT

by mikeb

 

Got is the attitude of haste

A sure foundation of needless waste

I’ve got to have it yesterday

It’s something new, I’ll gladly pay

Whether I have the cash or not

My plastic card will stem the rot

And I’ll be in a heavenly mood

Because, to me, it’s just like food

That feeds the boredom in my soul

And fills my hungry God shaped hole

But only lasts a little time

Before that mountain I must climb

If only I would ask The One

Who satisfies through His dear Son

Then I would surely lose the taste

For all my piles of needless waste.

COLD

by mikeb

 

I’m striving and straining
To change what I am
My patience is poorly
I’m shut like a clam
Nothing has altered
I’m still cold as ice
Emotions abandoned
I’m not very nice.

GREAT

by mikeb

 

If you think you’re thick and naff
Hate to see your photograph
Self worth sinking in the bath
God thinks you are great.

BEAM

by mikeb

 

A beam of light has found it’s way
Into the darkness that is me
And broken up the sullen state
That took a hold of all I be
The wilderness is where I was
Abandoned,lost and deep in shock
The Lord has raised me from the sand
And now I stand upon The Rock.

BAGGAGE

by mikeb

 

Everyone has got a past
A cupboard full of bones
And there are many instances
That no one could condone
The baggage that you carry round
Would take a forklift truck
To lift the weight off of your back
So with it you are stuck.

HALLWAY

by mikeb

 

He sits in the hallway, a vigil to keep
Waits for a call, but there’s never a peep
Nothing is moving, not even a mouse
Why was He invited, into this house
Windows dirty, doors tight shut
Decaying air a knife could cut
When is their journey going to begin
Or is the devil going to win.

HAND IT UP

by mikeb

 

You have a pain that’s deep within
It’s crippling you inside
You will not hand it up to Me
From Me you’re trying to hide
I am the great physician
I have the means to heal
But only if you hand it up
To change the way you feel.

HAPPINESS

by mikeb

 

Everyone longs for happiness
But few possess it’s fruit
It’s easier to wear a mask
Than give away your suit
As we are all self centred
We care for number one
Concerned with all our pressing needs
No wonder we’re so glum.

MEANS

by mikeb

 

You have the means to carry out
The task I have for you
If only you would trust in Me
My vision would come true
I know you’re only human
Your ship can’t ride the wave
Jesus lives upon your boat
And it is you He’ll save.

HAPPY

by mikeb

 

Do you want to be happy
At ease with your lot
A life of contentment
With all that you’ve got
Ignoring your feelings
That rain like a storm
By looking to Jesus
Who should be your norm.

HARVEST

by mikeb

 

The fields are ripe
The harvest’s here
But who is there to reap
The countless land
Of ripened corn
That ends up in a heap
If only we were energised
To activate our calling
We could change their destiny

CESSPIT

by mikeb

 

Standing in a cesspit
Tainted by the world
I’m clinging on defiantly
With all my morals curled
I know I am forgiven
I am Your precious child
How can You love someone like me
So easily defiled.

HEAT AND SHADE

by mikeb

 

It’s very hot, it’s stifling
And I feel so oppressed
The world is burning round me
I’m feeling overdressed
So I retreat into the shade
Where coolness welcomes me
In peace and calm where I can sit
Is where I want to be.

AT LAST

by mikeb

 

At last there is a beam of light
Coming from your being
Years of wear and tear have brought
The sight that you are seeing
You’ve tried to keep the past contained
Believing you’re okay
Finally you’ve seen the truth
You’re calling it a day.

CHOICE

by mikeb

What is the purpose
Of living a life
Conformed to a world
That’s stagnating in strife
Where beauty is laughed at
And it is the norm
To follow the devil
In one aimless swarm.

HECTIC

by mikeb

 

What a hectic life we lead
Busy people doing stuff
Read our bibles, say our prayers
As long as we are doing enough
To live the life that we believe
Will earn our way to pastures rich
Where we can graze like fatted calves
And go through life without a hitch.

CALCIFIED

by mikeb

 

Stumbling through the wilderness
I’ve reached a wall so high
Preventing me from going on
I can no longer lie
About the way that I have changed
I thought my past was dead
But still I am my selfish self
I am myself instead.

Which doesn’t ever go away
Knowing what He did for us

BURDEN

by mikeb

 

The rubbish presses on your back
As you head for the cross
The things that fill your heavy sack
You’re desperate to toss
The burden of your sinful life
Is weighing on your mind
But soon you’ll drop it on the ground
And leave your sins behind.

HELLO LORD

by mikeb

HELLO LORD

Hello Lord, I’ve come to chat
About the coming day
Knowing You have plans for me
Means You must have Your way
So I offer up myself
My thoughts, my words, my deeds
Everything I give to You
The blossoms and the weeds.

Be humble in my sounds.

COLOSSUS

by mikeb

 

You have the power and the might
To turn me into a colossus
I need not fear the strains of life
All of the things that boss us
For if I choose to turn to You
Trusting that You will provide
Then surely nothing can overcome
The Lord I have inside.

WRONG

by mikeb

 

You mean to be a Christian
And follow in His ways
But something that you practice
Proves this is not the case
Deep inside you know it’s wrong
But hey you feel so great
The devils’ got his claws in you
You’ve gone and grabbed his bait.
