Messed Up Have You?


Have you really messed up?
Did you do something wrong?
Is ole wretched regret
Now singing your song?

You’ve been asking yourself
"Self, what did you do?
O, how can the Lord
Overlook this sin, too?"

But don’t ask yourself
About things that you do…
Instead ask your God
What He has done for you.

Yes, you will make mistakes…
We all fall so short…
But nothing’s too big
Or too sinful to thwart

God’s plan and His purpose
For all of our lives.
For in spite of our faults
That plan still survives.

Pure sinless perfection
Will not be achieved.
We’re sin free because
We have simply believed

What Jesus accomplished
On cruel Calvary.
He has broken our chains!!
We are totally free!!

Now, we can’t excuse sin…
That would dishonor Grace…
But sometime we fail…
We fall flat on our face.

But forgiveness is ours...
Repentance still works.
God loves us in spite of
Our twists and our quirks.

So just pick yourself up
And dust yourself off...
No, don't stamper or stutter...
Don't sneer and don't scoff.

You're a child of The King!!
You will have to go on
Until you are standing
Before that great Throne.

So don't dwell on the past
God has wiped it away.
The future is yours...
Today is a new day!!!

~~Dedicated to Stella~~

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will
forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.


Acts 3:19
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins
may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may
come from the Lord,


Micah 7:18-19

Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives
the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You
do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy.
You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our
sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.




 











MESSED UP HAVE YOU?
