I Woke Up With A Mission On My Mind…
I woke up this morning with a mission on my mind.
I wanted to tell others of Jesus! It was about time!
There were so much scripture I began to ponder.
My love for Christ grew down here and “up yonder!”
When I needed some help. And needed it the most.
Christ saved and filled me with the Holy Ghost!
The excitement I had for Jesus began to brew.
I wanted others to know this one that I knew!
Others from church just couldn’t help to explain it!
My love for Jesus... It’s hard to contain it!
I pray that others will share of God’s life eternal.
It’s my wish for their name to be in heaven’s journal!
I pray that God will use the words that are spoken.
To minster to the needy, bruised and the broken!
Lord… Help me not to be ashamed of your GOOD NEWS!
May there be a shout of victory
beyond the church pews!
A mission for Jesus... God has stirred in my soul!
To be his example… Wherever I go!
May the banner of the cross be lifted above…
As an example of Christ sacrifice from his heart of love!
A testimony of God’s goodness is a joy to share!
Spreading his glad tidings to people everywhere!
A mission for Jesus is what he’s already given!
So others may know of a brand new way of livin’!
