Guilt and Shame

Guilt and shame are not from God
For Jesus washed our sins away
And continues to do so
As You walk with Him each day
God has declared you His Beloved
Pure and holy in His sight
Not because you are yet perfect
But Because Jesus lives in you today

When Adam and Eve in Eden
Ate the forbidden fruit
God simply asked them questions
So they’d confess their sin
And He could come to the rescue
Sewing clothing of skin

He didn’t want them to remain
Forever locked in their sin
So He barred them from the garden
To let death have it’s way in
Keep them from the tree of life
Until Jesus died for them

Guilt and shame are not from God
For Jesus washed our sins away
And continues to do so
As You walk with Him each day
God has declared you His Beloved
Pure and holy in His sight
Not because you are yet perfect
But Because Jesus lives in you today

Abraham was a lier
Lying to protect his life
Said his wife was his sister
A lie we’re told, he used twice
Putting his wife in danger
Of bearing another man’s child

But God came to the rescue
Revealing Abraham’s mistake
The kings sent Sarah safely back
To Abraham’s tent
God did not condemn him
For Abraham was God’s friend

Guilt and shame are not from God
For Jesus washed our sins away
And continues to do so
As You walk with Him each day
God has declared you His Beloved
Pure and holy in His sight
Not because you are yet perfect
But Because Jesus lives in you today

King David was an adulterer
Using murder to cover up his sin
But God did not condemn him
Or leave him in guilt and shame
Instead God sent a prophet
To reveal David’s heart problem

David grieved and repented
Changed his heart and his direction
Sought again to do things God’s way
Relying on God’s direction
And God himself call King David
A man after My Own heart’s affection

Guilt and shame are not from God
For Jesus washed our sins away
And continues to do so
As You walk with Him each day
God has declared you His Beloved
Pure and holy in His sight
Not because you are yet perfect
But Because Jesus lives in you today

The Pharisees brought an adulteress
To the dust at Jesus feet
Expecting Him to condemn her
Heaping guilt and shame upon her
But Jesus’ question revealed their hearts
And they slunk away instead

Peter denied Jesus
Said he never knew him
Because he was afraid
Of what would happen to him
But Jesus asked Peter to speak his love
Giving Peter forgiveness and healing

Guilt and shame are not from God
For Jesus washed our sins away
And continues to do so
As You walk with Him each day
God has declared you His Beloved
Pure and holy in His sight
Not because you are yet perfect
But Because Jesus lives in you today

Saul was a murderer
Who thought he was doing right
Protecting God’s people
From heresy’s blight
But when he saw Jesus
His mistake was identified

Jesus did not use
Words of guilt and condemnation
Merely showed Saul the truth
Of his perilous situation
Allowing Saul to become Paul
Jesus’ Apostle to the nations

Guilt and shame are not from God
For Jesus washed our sins away
And continues to do so
As You walk with Him each day
God has declared you His Beloved
Pure and holy in His sight
Not because you are yet perfect
But Because Jesus lives in you today

There is now no condemnation
For those whom Jesus has saved
For His death paid the price
All our sin died with Him that day
And He has given us His new life
So we can live His way

Jesus gives us a new heart
That can love His way
And a new spirit
Joined to His Spirit seal
Filling us with Jesus Presence
And His power to rule

Guilt and shame are not from God
For Jesus washed our sins away
And continues to do so
As You walk with Him each day
God has declared you His Beloved
Pure and holy in His sight
Not because you are yet perfect
But Because Jesus lives in you today

Guilt and shame are Satan’s tools
With which he tries to keep us chained
Keep us hiding from God
As though we cannot be redeemed
So we will not find the truth
That Jesus is all we need

Jesus is our covering
So we need not fear exposure
He washes away our sin
So we are whole and pure in Him
And takes up residence in us
Securing us as God’s Beloved

Guilt and shame are not from God
For Jesus washed our sins away
And continues to do so
As You walk with Him each day
God has declared you His Beloved
Pure and holy in His sight
Not because you are yet perfect
But Because Jesus lives in you today

There is no damage or sin
That Jesus Presence can’t repair again
He is the compensation
For all the damage we have done
And of which we have been victims
He is our prize and emancipation

If the world ever really knew
What freedom Jesus bought us
We’d be dancing on the rooftops
With love and joy and gladness
Continually giving Him the praise
For all that He’s accomplished

Guilt and shame are not from God
For Jesus washed our sins away
And continues to do so
As You walk with Him each day
God has declared you His Beloved
Pure and holy in His sight
Not because you are yet perfect
But Because Jesus lives in you today

Presence

“All at once their eyes were opened and they realized it was Jesus! Then suddenly, in a flash, Jesus vanished from before their eyes! Stunned, they looked at each other and said, “Why didn’t we recognize it was him? Didn’t our hearts burn with the flames of holy passion while we walked beside him? He unveiled for us such profound revelation from the Scriptures!”” Luke 24:31-32 TPT

Your Presence Lord
Ignights in us a Holy passion
You speak to our hearts
To the depth of our soul person
And we recognise that Your love
Is what we need to make us whole
And we want to remain there
By Your side forever more
To live in Your Presence
You are our love’s true goal

There are no words to express
The pure love of Your Presence
It is far more precious
Than all earthly treasures
You ignight a flame of love
Holy passion and desire
As Your Presence causes our heart
To truly come alive
And the flame of Your holiness
It Purifies us

In the words that You speak
There is profound revelation
An understanding of Scripture
That defies explanation
For You share with us
Your own relationship with God
So we can know Him
Through the insights You give
And come into His Presence
Knowing we are His beloved

You fulfil our hearts’ longing
To be truly known and loved
Not for what we can do
But for who we really are
You bring out the best in us
For which we were created
Rejoicing in us
As God’s beloved children
In You we find where we belong
Now and for eternity

As we walk through this day Lord
Open our eyes to Your Presence
So we can see You are with us
And hear Your words of wisdom
Let Your Glory be
Our guiding light
Let Your empowering love
Our hearts fully ignight
So with all we say and do
We give all glory to You

Your Joy

“We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection. His example is this: Because his heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be his, he endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God!” Hebrews 12:2 TPT

The judgement the crowd
Pronounced against You
The “Crucify! Crucify!”
Was to me due
But Your joy in me meant
You took it in my stead

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

The cut of the whip
That was used on You
That punishment
Was to me due
But Your joy in me meant
You took it in my stead

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

The crown of thorns
Which cut Your head
To bring down pride
Was due me instead
But Your joy in me meant
You took it in my stead

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

The nails that pierced
Right through Your hands
Punishment for sin
That was my inheritance
But Your joy in me meant
You took it in my stead

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

The agony that you endured
As You hung upon the cross
Your body broken like a thief
That was my sin’s cost
But Your joy in me meant
You took it in my stead

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

The shame of being crucified
As a criminal, fully tried
The wages of sin
For which justice cried
Your joy in me meant
You took it in my stead

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

Death in this world
And separation from God
Complete death for sin
Was my sin’s due cost
But Your joy in me meant
You took it in my stead

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

With Your resurrection life
Raising You to God’s side
You lifted me with You
One as Your eternal bride
Joyfully, freely, In Your love divine
Your prize for all that You have done!

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

Now I live in Your love divine
Freely dwelling by Your side
You and I, Jesus, one, united
In Your Holy Spirit’s Presence
Filled with joy and love forever
For they are Your very essence

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

I embrace Your joy, Your Joy in me!
For it gives me life and  strength to be
Your faithful lover, Your pride and joy
God’s child, Your Joy, eternally
One with You, forever free
To live in Your joy, Your joy in me!

The Pieces of My Life

“At each and every sunrise you will hear my voice as I prepare my sacrifice of prayer to you. Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for your fire to fall upon my heart.” Psalms 5:3 TPT

The pieces of my life I bring
To You my God as an offering
I lay them on Your altar of love
And wait for Your fire to fall upon my heart

The fire of Your Presence consumes all the dross
All my sins and failings turned to ash
The gold of Jesus holy life
Purified in me, His glory revealed

The fire of Your Presence fills my new heart
With Your passionate love to receive and impart
Being wrapped and filled with Your love, eternally
Empowers me to love others as You have loved me

From the fire of Your indwelling Presence
You speak to me, bringing peace, joy and gladness
My heart and soul rejoice in Your Essence
You are life and love, joy and transcendence

From the broken pieces of my life
You build a glorious holy temple
All I thought was lost, destroyed or broken
The fire of Your Presence restores, healed and holy!

All the grief and losses I have experienced
All the pain and trials of this life’s journey
Are consumed in the fire of Your Presence
As I’m blessed by Your Presence in me overflowing

The depth of Your honour in loving me
In accepting the sacrifice I bring
Pierce’s through every part of my being
Brining joy and hope, love and healing

In the flame of Your love I rejoice and sing
That You delight in accepting my offering
Filling my heart with the fire of Your Presence
Making me Your temple and holy dwelling place!
