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.

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.

PRODIGAL

by mikeb

 

The prodigal son was rather bored
His world was endlessly dull
He wondered if by getting some loot
He could make his life more full.
So off to dad he meekly went
To claim what he was due
He nearly fainted, the answer was yes
And gladness did ensue.

CISTERN

by mikeb

 

In my cistern, there I lay
Living water drained away
Open to the devils realm
God no longer at my helm
What a change in such a flash
Covered in a nasty rash
Could I ever hope to be
Back to where I was with He.

CHILL

by mikeb

 

You don’t have to be too good
To do the works of God
You don’t have to know it all
Before you get the nod
He can use you as you are
A sinner just like me
Let Him lead you to the place
Where He wants you to be.

BENEATH

by mikeb

 

Beneath the surface of the pond
Amongst the murky depths
Unseen bodies live a life
Of permanent unrest
The surface is a joyous place
Sunlight streams across
But the deeper that you go
Darkness is the boss.

ASTRAY

by mikeb

 

You wander in and out of sin
It’s difficult to stay
Upon that pot holed narrow road
You trip and go astray
Into the devils’ wonderland
Where naughtiness abounds
You revel in your new found life
Until you come around.

To know that when you sin

There is a way back to your Dad

He’s sure to let you in

For Jesus paid the penalty

For all that we have done

HELP

by mikeb

 

If you’re looking for some help
With what you’re going through
And if everything you’ve tried
Has left you feeling blue
Then hand it over straight away
To He who knows the cure
You needn’t go another day
With what you must endure.

YOU CANNOT TAKE IT WITH YOU

by mikeb

You cannot take it with you
That’s what they always say
No matter how you build your pile
When you’re gone, it will stay
So while you’re being stingy
By hoarding loads of dross
You’re missing out on what it’s for
And all your gain is loss.
