Unknowingly Sinful

Help, I’m walking away from God.
I need to turn back to the love I’ve forgot.
Please don’t let me lose my soul.
He’s the only one who cares, and the one to make me whole.
Help, God is coming back.
And when He’s gathering His children, I won’t be in the pack.
Please don’t let God overlook me. Don’t let Him turn away.
I have so much to confess, so much has gone astray.
God is all I’ve ever wanted, yet I’ve walked away.
Please don’t let me burn in hell, or lose on judgment day.
God, I’m sure, is upset with me knowing all I’ve done.
And no one else can take the blame, I am the guilty one.
Shameful and disgraceful too, the sins that I commit.
I need to kneel upon my knees and make myself admit.
There is no use denying it. The wrong is of my own.
I should’ve never walked away, but I had to run alone.
And now I’m running back to Him, asking for forgiveness.
Am I really worthy of it, His mercy and tenderness?
Oh won’t you help me talk to Him, or at least direct the way?
I want to be of God again and live the Godly way.

Thank You, God, for showing that I could never lose Your love.
Your mercies are new every morning, and endureth forever!
God is my hero.

Outrageous Mercy

Wow… what outrage one can feel
believing a killer got away with a crime,
yet no one was outrageous over Barabbas
when they saw him commit the crime.
And placed beside him, an innocent Jesus.
No one was screaming for what was just.
Crucify Him! Crucify Him!
Is what they cried instead.
They let the guilty go free
to see the innocent dead.
Where is the outrage?
Where is the compassion?
Does anyone care?
Where is the passion?
In His death, that’s where.
Yet who seems to care?
God does, that’s who.
His justice is not through.
The only mercy is in Jesus Christ!
Turn to Him before you pay the price!
