This Fourth of July My Thoughts Are Clear
Published by Deborah Negron
To Know You Is To Live In Peace
For In You I Am Free
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit. I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” And You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You In a time when You may be found; Surely in a flood of great waters They shall not come near him. You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah
Psalms 32:1-2, 5-7
You have kept me.
You have held me in the hollow of your hand.
When you knew I would fail, you had already prepared Redemption for me since before you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Before the sperm of my father and the egg in my mother came together you knew me. Before the embryo was even formed by your power, you knew the steps I would walk in. For you preordained them.
Your desire for me was for good and not for evil. You knew the plans you had for me before the very foundation of the world.
Oh such knowledge is too great for me.
To think I was in your plan of Redemption is a marvelous thing.
Lord and Saviour how can I walk away from the love that sustains me?
My life is now hidden in Christ. You saw me and the day of my awakening before I knew my first breath, before I was born again. You drew me with chords of love.
You have never forsaken me. You have delivered me from my poor wanderings.
You have bought me with a great price.
On the cross you made yourself a spectacle for all to see. You poured out your life for me. Then on the third day, You rose up from the Grave. How manifold are your blessings for those whom you have loved from everlasting.
Your blood was shed on my behalf. In your scars are written all my faults.
Yet your pain has become my gain.
Your sorrow has given me tomorrows.
Your story has brought me glory.
Your forgiveness has given me free access yes an
entrance to the throne of Grace.
How precious is your Love
and your mercy every day.
Until you return for me, I will remain steadfast and committed to proclaiming your great grace. Your great love will be spoken of from my lips. And songs of praise will I sing all of the days of my life. For you have loved me all of my days.
My tears you’ve changed to dancing….
My despair to a place where your presence is shared. Your strength is now mine in the midst of my weakness. Your peace carries me through every storm. I fear not evil that may come to torment me. For you are my shield. Under the shadow of your wings I am placed securely. I am rejoicing and enduring in you, my King.
I’m Living Free its where you have brought me…
Living in Faith and trusting in the One who wrote my story is the place of Freedom and Glory.
All my sin is now forgiven
All my shame covered in your stains.
The blood you poured out blotted out the record of all of my iniquities.
I am Truly Free from sin.
Sweet Freedom in Jesus,
My independence in Him.
Now I live Life Just to Praise His and to Bring Glory to his Name.
