Faith,

Faith is described in Hebrews 11:1 in this way, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” I think It takes a greater amount of faith to not believe than it does to believe God is there. This is because the Bible also says in Psalm 19:1, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”

If you gaze at any piece of art or read any book or poem you will catch a glimpse of the artist in them. The same is true of the world. If you take the time you will see God in many places in the art of the world He created even if you only have a little faith. The poems were created out of faith and using Bible verses as a basis for many of them, I hope you enjoy these poems of faith.

Day by Day

1 Timothy 6:12, “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”

Thought the battle was over

When you came to Christ

Thought you could sit back

And breeze through life


Took only a few days

To see you were wrong

The war may be won

But inside the battle

Rages on


Day by day

Day by day

Were fightin’ battles

Until glory

Battles will not stop

Cause the devil wants

To take us down

Like it or not


The world is alluring

If you let it

It can draw you away

But Christ stood up

To the world

With his power

So can you today


Day by day

Day by day

Were fightin’ battles

Until glory

Battles that will not stop

Cause the devil wants

To take us down

Like it or not


Find Your Way Back

Proverbs 3:5-6, “
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

Stay on the right course

You can find your way back

Lose the light you’re done for

Better start watchin’ you back

The devil is waitin’ watchin’

Like a lion on the prowl

One small mistake, one small mistep

He’ll come to take you down


Find your way

Find your way

Find your way back

To the fold

You’re lost in the

Wilderness

Tryin’ to be bold

Think what you’re doin’

Is what’s best for you

When you’re taken down

Then what will you do


A sheep without a shepherd

Will go its merry way

Never even knowing

That it has gone astray

It doen’t have to be like this

It’s possible to enjoy life

Without giving into

All the sin and strife

So obsessed with what you don’t have

To see what you do

The blessing of God

Are right there before you


Find your way back

Find your way back to him

Live life again

In the end you win

The World

John 16:33, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

I feel like the world is broken

And can’t be fixed

But really it’s just sinful man

Up to the same old tricks

Let me be me

Is the new battle cry

Gotta take the church

Outta the states, tell you why

Don’t want to be told we’re sinners

By any Bible preachin man

Cause then we won’t be free

To do what’s in our own plan


Something’s wrong in the world today

I can tell you what it is

We’ve turned our backs on God

No longer think we’re His


Kids are taught from day one

to achieve and aquire

And the only purpose in this life

Is to fill your own desires

Making millions

Is the new American dream

Don’t care how you get it

Don’t have to be clean

What about those who don’t have

But they still want to get

They set out to rob and steal

And take it from the rest

God is not mentioned

Except in a negative tone

It seems the world is ready for god

To come back and claim his own


Something’s wrong in the world today

I can tell you what it is

We’ve turned our backs on God

No longer think we’re his

H.E.A.V.E.N

John 14:2, “In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you.”

If you ask me where I live

The only answer i can give

Is H.E.A.V.E.N


This earth I briefly roam

Till I get called back home

To H.E.A.V.E.N


My home I have never seen

Till the day I move in

But I know its a better place

Then the one I’m living in

The streets are paved with gold

There is no night just day

And we will be praising god

With everything we do and say

I’m a stranger to this town

Don’t know when I’ll be movin’ on

New neighborhoods a better place

Give him your heart, come along


If you ask me where I live

The only answer I can give

Is H.EA.V.E.N


This earth I briefly roam

Till I get called back home

To H.E.A.V.E.N

I Owe Everything to You

Psalm 89:18, “All we are and have we owe to God…”

I owe everything to you

I close my eyes for a moment

Lord, to thank you for all

The things you’ve done for me


I owe everything to you

All i have i owe to you

Oh i owe everything to you

All i am, i get from you

Everything i owe to you

I don’t want to live

For only me

After all is said and done

You are the one, who set me free


I owe everything to you

I close my eyes for a moment

Lord, to thank you for all

The things you’ve done for me


my life won’t last forever

No matter how hard i try

i know where i’m gonna’ be

At that moment when i die


I owe everything to you

I close my eyes for a moment

Lord, to thank you for all

The things you’ve done for me

The Love Of God

1 John 4:16, “So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.”

The love of God

Can change your heart

Wash away your sin

Offer you a new start

Might wonder how I know

This to be true

Cause what God did for me

He can do for you


Once I was lost

Afraid of what life would hold

Each day I would dread

Each day would feel so cold

But I sought out God

I felt him calling to me

He offered me his love

The truth was finally set free


God’s love will renew

Your heart and mind

Help you to take words of love

Offer them to those you find

So they to may be drawn

Under the wings of his love

As they travel in this world

And the world to come


The love of God

Can change your heart

Wash away your sin

Offer you a new start

Might wonder how I know

This to be true

Cause what God did for me

He can do for you

The Battle Belongs to the Lord

1 Samuel 17:47, “And that all this assembly may know that the Lord saves not with sword and spear. For the battle is the Lord's, and he will give you into our hand.”

Who are we to think

We can

Do battle on our own

On our own

We don't have the power

Nor the strength

To wage this war alone

So all alone

An army of one


No

We must open our eyes

Realize

The battle belongs to the Lord

The battle belongs to the Lord

In Him only

Is this war won


In His power alone

Will the enemy fall

In his strength alone

Will we stand rall

All you need to do

Is lift the sword

Of His Word

Call on His name

He will lift you up

Won’t let you fall

Seal the victory over all


We must open our eyes

Realize

The battle belongs to the Lord

The battle belongs to the Lord

In Him only

Is this war won


We don't have the power

Nor the strength

To wage this war alone

So all alone

An army of one


We must open our eyes

Realize

The battle belongs to the Lord

The battle belongs to the Lord

In Him only

Is this war won

Thank You

Faith to me is life. I lived through a lot of good times but there has also been a lot of bad times. It is only my faith in God and knowing He could help me through the bad was I sustained. I hope you find a little faith in these poems and song lyrics. Again I would like to thank you for taking the time to read them.
