Unhindered

Posted on Updated on

Lord remove the hindrances from our lives that keeps us from walking out your call on our lives.

Unhindered

I want to be unhindered
The choice is mine
To reach out to the dying
Or leave them behind

Unhindered and fighting
Heading toward the mark
Unmovable and unshakeable
Pressing on through the dark

Unhindered I stand
Unwilling to Let go
The idea of freedom
And a defeated foe

Fighting against a capture
He wants to take the prize
To defeat the chosen
And put blinders on their eyes

Unhindered we stand
To fight one more fight
To share the gospel
And shine the undying light

Lord,  help me live unhindered
Help us listen to your call
Entering  into the quiet place
Forsaking it all

Through the Fire

Through the Fire

I walked through the fire
On my way to you
The flames grew higher
I was lost and confused
I had to let go of what I called me
And stop walking in my own way
So that I could truly see
Sometimes my faith grows weak
The path is like a stormy night
I hold on to his strong hand
I must fight the fight
When the enemy speaks lies
And tries to pull me away
I listen to my Lord
So that I do not stray
I step into the unknown
My feet begin to walk on a wire
He speaks the truth and I grow stronger
As I walk through the fire

Stand Strong

Posted on Updated on

I wrote this poem several years ago, but feel it definitely applies to this season of changing and shifting to a a new level. We need to put on the full armor of God and having done all to stand, stand still. Knowing that it is not a flesh and blood battle that we fight but a spiritual battle. So gird up people of God and stand firm.

Stand Strong

Put on your armor
Stand stronger
Stand taller
Draw your sword today
He will make your way
Having done all to stand
Stand still, Follow his will
Don’t falter, don’t faint
The Eagle’s strength is given to those who wait
So stand behind His shield
And in you let your spirit yield
To the one who made us all
Choose to follow His call.
