Jesus Took the Garbage Out Of My Life

There was garbage in my life,
 that God said would destroy me!
I tried to tell others about this, 
but they wouldn’t believe me!

God clearly spoke to me about some
 garbage I hung on to.
He told me to let go of it… 
 But I didn’t want to!

I was a follower of Jesus Christ…  Or so I thought!
Irregardless of the garbage in my life
 that I had brought!

Soon, this garbage began to bring
 my spiritual life down!
As I was being “pulled in,”
 by the garbage all around!

I could begin to see just what was happening to me!
I needed Jesus to come!  And set me free!

He came!  His cleansing power was soon applied.
He took my garbage, and helped me to be satisfied!

I need to be content, with what God has given!
If I want to enjoy a life that’s 
cleansed and forgiven!

There’s much more to life, that I can clearly gain.
It starts with a life that is serving Jesus’ name!

Won’t you allow Jesus to take your garbage out?
And find out what true life is really all about!
