Carol's Journey
Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 My Faith in Jesus
I once was lost in my sin and headed for Hell
But the Holy Spirit worked in my heart as well
He showed me I needed Jesus as my Savior
Then I would spend eternity with Him forever

There on Calvary's hill, my Savior died
It was because of my sins that He bled
Jesus, Lamb of God, perfect sacrifice
I deserved to die, but He paid the price

I placed my personal faith in Jesus, God's Son
Believing in who He is and what He has done
He died for me and rose bodily from the grave
I acknowledged my sin and He fully forgave

I am now His child, sealed by His Spirit inside
He is my Counselor, walking daily by my side
Now I have the promise of heaven for eternity
He is my only hope and strength on this journey

Now I no longer face condemnation when I sin
Through Jesus' blood, all sins are covered within
Now confessing sin is not to again receive salvation
But to agree I was wrong and for His restoration

He hears all my prayers and answers by His will
In the times He delays, His timing is perfect still
Even when the requests I pray turn out differently
He knows what is best and I trust Him completely

It has been over 35 years since I gave Him my heart
He blesses me in so many ways words cannot impart
Through the trials of my life, He leads me all the way
Remaining faithful to hold me in His hand day by day

Romans 3:12 (NIV)
All have turned away, they have together become worthless;
there is no one who does good, not even one.
Romans 10:9-10 (NIV)
9 That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord,"
and believe in your heart that God raised him from the
dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart
that you believe and are justified, and it is with your
mouth that you confess and are saved.

Romans 8:1 (NIV)
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those
who are in Christ Jesus.

Romans 4:7 (NIV)
Blessed are they whose transgressions are forgiven,
whose sins are covered.
