Lenexa Baptist Chruch = Serving God's Purpose - Poem by Tom Zart
FIGHT YOUR BATTLES ON YOUR KNEES
What does it mean to fight our battles on our knees
Simply-that you and I must depend on prayer.
We must invest our time in seeking the Lord
Listening for His answer to our despair.
Why should we fight our battles on our knees
Because it is the Biblical pattern of love.
Prayer connects us with the power of God’s will
As we surrender to His divineness above.
God causes all things to work together
For the good of those who willfully serve Him.
As we focus on faith and not our self
He gives us our hope to overcome the grim.
If you wish a new start, begin with prayer
And fall on your face before God.
It’s the last thing the devil wishes us to do
As the tongues of the unfaithful calls us odd.
Praying empowers us with comfort of heart
As we submit to the wisdom of God’s voice.
If you wish to feel happy, delivered and complete
You must heed to His whispers by choice.
MOMENT BY MOMENT
Moment by moment we must listen to our sprit
As God speaks through our soul within.
When we fail to comply and go our own way
We’re disobedient and suffer the punishment of sin.
The Devil whispers in each and every ear
And his favorite tool of corruption is fear.
But when we totally summit to our faith in God
We turn away from temptation and our destiny is clear.
Remember all the times you have had shameful thoughts
And there was a voice that warned you to beware.
Our holey sprit helps us stay hole and complete
When we heed to its call without hesitation or despair.
Surrender your soul to the power of God
And your life will be a testimony of love.
Surrender your heart to the deeds of evil
And you will loose your deliverance above.
SERVING GOD'S PURPOSE
There’s only one trip through life and that’s it;
So what are you leaving for those left behind?
Will they miss your wisdom and unselfish love
Or will there be laughter, happiness and words unkind?
You may live your life as wicked as the devil
And regardless of your sins God still loves you.
But when you serve His purpose and intent
You’re transformed by His grace and renew.
You can’t convince me nothing really happens
When righteous men gather, confess and pray.
God has His purpose for all who submit
To His commandments for believers to obey.
Always be ready to fight your battles on your knees
Before and after you are tested by time.
Never underestimate the power of God’s will
And what happens when your purpose is “Divine”.
All of us are accountable to the judgment of God
And when we die without Christ our sadness never ends.
By the deepest longings of our heart and soul
We serve our Lord, ourselves, family and friends.
With accountability we apply God’s wisdom
And His protection to promote a righteous life.
We receive His grace by our demeanor
As He leads us through sadness and strife.
All through the Bible over and over again
The chronicle of life is our accountability.
The devil is a roaring lion feasting on souls
Corrupting man’s heart with dominance and disability.
Always remember you are never alone
And God is aware of all things around you.
Through faith, prayer, trust, love and comment
We find fulfillment and purpose in the life we pursue.
