I Believe

I do believe that I am here, for a reason and a purpose that is my own and that I alone can control it. I also believe that God will never leave me or forsake me; He is mighty to save and takes great delight in me. He has set me free and when I am free, I am free indeed.

Who am I, Father that You would die for me that You would declare me holy and pure; a Priest in Your Temple.

When I was a sinner You saved me from destruction, when I cursed You, You gave me life that I have not earned and a gift that I don't deserve.

Who are you Lord? When I cry You listen, Your love supports me and keeps me safe from that which tries to take my life.

However, because I am Yours, my life is not my own; I have died to myself so I am dead to sin. The grave cannot hold me, one day I will live and reign with You in heaven.

There is much to do until that day comes; I have waves that I must walk on; giants I must conquer, and Judas' that I must face. Do not remove Your love from me, or Your helping hand from mine. I am powerless without You.

Father, grant me peace today as I walk through my school; bless them with peace; Father, forgive me for my sins and forgive too. They do not know what they are doing.

I walk alone on this road and yet there are so many who walk the same road, thank you, Father, that you put praise in their hearts because through praising Your Name victory comes.

Bring me to my knees, Father, I want to see Your face and experience Your power. Thank you for the cross, for forgiveness; Grace; mercy; and love. Without you, Oh Lord, life is worthless.

I believe You are here, alive and on the throne. There is no one like You, no one but you deserve the praises that come from my heart and no one can touch me like You do.

Father, forgive me if I don't live up to these words, if my love lies somewhere else change my mind and my heart. Forgive me, if I don't place You above everything. Forgive me, if I have gossiped or slandered my neighbor. I'm sorry Lord, if I worship and praise Your name but then plan the destruction of the one's abilities that exceed mine. I pray for others but cannot control my tongue.

My heart is torn and ugly with sin, wash me in Your blood, cleanse me, and make me a new creation. Help me to change and mature in you.

In the name of Jesus Christ

Amen
