Some might wonder
How I could speak Your name
After all that I have done
It’s not because I’m worthy
But because of Your grace
That I am unconditionally loved
This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin.
Seek to understand, not to judge
Reach out to hold a hand, not a grudge
“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.”
Do not promote guilt
When I died to set you free
Who decides which sin is worse
When this wasn’t even clarified by Me?
It is the condition of the heart
That only the Father can see
And He deals with it in grace
Not in condemnation to imprison thee
1 Samuel 16:7
“…The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”
“Leave them; they are blind guides. If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.”
People will let you down
They’ll disappoint you, fail you,
misunderstand, mistreat and leave you.
And when they do, turn to Me.
Turn to me in your hurt,
your sadness, disappointment and fear.
Turn to Me to learn forgiveness
To gain understanding
Turn to Me to be healed.
I forgive and love like no one else
I’ll teach you to do the same
It won’t always make sense
but My way is the best
not just for you
but for everyone here.
You are our Creator
Defender of the weak
You love beyond measure
You rescue, forgive and seek
He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
Because of You
I have stability, security and strength
I know where and to whom I belong
Storms are used to strengthen me
Heartaches turn into song
Because of You
All troubles find their purpose
All questions are met with grace
All sins are cleansed and forgiven
There is hope in each new day
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
It’s all around
She’s wrong, he’s right
Whoever you hear first
May pull you
To their side of the fight
But don’t rush in
Everyone has a side
Each their own perspective
Not 100% wrong or right
Look at every angle
Seek to understand
For tomorrow, it might be you
In their place, needing a hand
No, it’s not that simple
There’s real hurt, there’s pain
But let’s try not to add to it
Seek to forgive, not to blame
In a lawsuit the first to speak seems right, until someone comes forward and cross-examines.
