SERVING GOD'S PURPOSE & GUILT = 2013
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".
At times people seem consumed by guilt
Long after it should have been resolved.
Some rightly suffer their shameful feelings
Because they refuse to give up evil deeds involved.
Guilt is our Lord's most effective tool
For prompting repentance and remorse.
A sad heart can transform our purpose of soul
By the power of God's love, not force.
Victory over guilt begins with the cross
Where Jesus paid our penalty and shame.
The battle to overcome should not be delayed
For it's our disobedience that's to blame.
