Romans 5

Romans 5
Peace and Joy
1Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, ME we[a]have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, ME 2through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace ME in which we now stand. And we[b] rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. 3Not only so, but we[c] also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance ME; 4perseverance, character; and character, ME hope. 5And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.

FAITH

The restlessness as its best is just

A comfort

I don’t know if this will turn out the way I need

So I sit at night and wonder

Just ponder

I can hear the thunder yet I see no rain

If this doesn’t happen for me then I’ve waited in vain

Yet I refrain in mundane disdain

Do I believe that God will deliver

Do you believe that God will deliver

PEACE

there is no calm in this storm

there was no radar to forewarn

of the bulbous clouds off my coast

w/ tragic light shows adorned

as my vessel rocked and dipped

it tipped and I abandoned ship

until a massive wave capsized my lifeboat

chills align across my spine

in these troubled waters I just float

GRACE

No one will save me from this predicament

I deserve to sink like sediment

For what I did I had no idea I was doing

My God why are you letting me drown

I apologize for my actions and letting You down

The boy in me begs for buoyancy

Yet the man in me understands this tragedy

Ive accepted that these dark waters are my destiny

PERSERVERANCE

I see the dark waters and am at home in this place

I threw my own faith in my face

w/ no solid ground beneath my feet

my peace diminishes as the swells increase

its always darkest before the dawn yet I see no sunshine near

God I’m begging for some grace to help me perservere

CHARACTER

In theory we all are good

We are not defined by those actions that we do in which we not should

But I do what I do and what’s in my heart I pursue

The footprints down the right path turned out to be bigger than my shoe

HOPE

What hope

Hope always disappoint (UNISON)
