Spoken Verse

Everything God made, He made with a boundary.

From the heavens to the sky, the birds and stars of light;

Kings of earth and all peoples;

All fit within his framework.

Disbelief. The biggest sin on earth. Did God really say?

In the garden, in creation, when we thought that we were right.

We lived in deepest pleasure and then darkness came at night.

The serpent tempted fast and with him he brought guilt

for a seed of doubt to enter and destroy all God had built.

They chose the sin and fear within,

it found its dwelling place.

Where God was meant to reign it found in the human race.

Empty on the inside, they started filling up

with everything from outside

They couldn’t fill their cup

Today we look around for something that will fill.

Our empty holes are waiting to be satisfied and thrilled.

Yet in our desperation, grasping at straws,

We find humiliation

In our weakness and our flaws.

Unloved. Without value. Afraid and unknown.

The fear it whispers, “you are alone.”

Have you not known? Have you not heard?

The Lord, the everlasting God, the creator of the ends of the earth.

He does not grow faint or grow weary.

His understanding is unsearchable.

But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength;

They shall mount up with wings like eagles,

They shall run and not be weary,

They shall walk and not faint.

Every pleasure on earth is from God…Satan can’t create, he can only distort.

What God has made for us we take and contort

We were made for so much more than this.

Our souls were meant to be satisfied; our hearts were meant to be pure

With something so much more, it needs the everlasting cure.

His scandal our freedom, our freedom His ALL.

He laid down His life so that we could fall

On our knees,

Wiped away our tears

Taking down our walls

My prayer

This day

Is all of you, less of me

Pour out my fear

Father, draw near

Make me fear less

Found spotless

I lift my all,

My all my gift.

Fill me with faith

Till the day we embrace

Oh Lord

Let me see your face.
