January (J-2) Gratitude
J-2, is the glue that seals the deal
That fuels the passion of what I feel
To have faith that the promises be made real
I can’t touch it yet; but I see it still
And taste it… so yes I believe.
I believe I can have what my mind has conceived
I can taste the victory my dreams have retrieved
From the yester- year that faded so fast
With fragments of hope from desires past
The strings of fulfillment within my grasp
So I’m ever, ever reaching for my goals.
Working out my salvation in my most holy faith
Through prayer, building stamina to run the race
Set before me.
Lord I need You now, like never before
The enemy’s trick is keeping a score
Of the times I have sinned and fallen short of the glory
And the times I’ve messed up he re-tells the story
Of how I have squandered your marvelous grace
As he comes to Your throne, to throw up in Your face
The ways I’ve let you down… Father.
Yet still I come BOLDLY before Your throne of grace
I fall to my knees and lay on my face
And cry out to you, for I know you will hear
You have not given me the spirit of fear,
But of power, and Love, and a mind that is sound
You died for my sins, so I won’t be bound
You will not give me over to the killer and thief
You are well acquainted with temptations and grief
We’re connected by blood
You’re the branch. I’m a leaf
On this tree of life so filled with fruit
I have loved you Lord from the days of my youth
I am grateful that You first loved me.
