It was another typical day for me,
Nothing really going on,
Except that in my spirit,
I felt something was wrong.
I prayed and asked God to reveal,
Why I felt this way,
I sat quietly and waited,
For what God had to say.
I heard a voice that said to me,
“You’ve not been living right.
And you my child, need to repent,
So you can walk in My light.”
I realized then just like a light,
Was shown upon my sins,
I never knew that I’d done such wrong,
I began to pray again.
I cried out, “Abba Father,
I come to You in Jesus name,
Will You please forgive my sin?
I don’t want to be the same!
The same as I’ve been in the past,
I want only to live for You,
My Savior, my Redeemer,
Please make me honest and true.
I cried and prayed and then once more,
I listened for Him again,
I heard “My child you are forgiven,
And freed from the bonds of sin.”
Then He said “You must crucify,
Your worldly pleasures and your flesh,
For I want you to serve me,
Yes there will be some tests.
But God told me I would pass these tests,
Standing on my faith,
Standing on the word of God,
And by seeking His face.
I’m learning to walk in His way,
Because He instructs me,
Through His voice, and through His word,
He’s helping me to see.
I now see the truth,
Though formerly I lived a lie,
But God was merciful to me,
Sometimes I wonder why.
Because truly I’m not worthy,
To even speak to Him,
But I know He loves me enough,
He sent Jesus to die for my sins.
So now I don’t question,
If I’m worthy or not,
Because God is my Father,
With Jesus blood I’m bought.
I was convicted in my heart and soul,
And that brought me back to Him,
I never want to be the same,
As I was, ever again.
Thank You God for speaking to,
A humble servant such as I,
Because of your compassion, mercy and love,
To You I’m drawing nigh.
Now I am a new creation,
I’ve had a renewing of my mind,
Because of the grace of God,
And His power, love and might.
