Die to Self and Live

March 12, 2018

Many times I chose to live unto myself and sin.

I paid no mind to others and thought that I would win.

 

Until one day a mentioned Name made me stop and think.

Realizing the hurt I'd caused, my heart began to sink.

 

Knowing now I was wrong, a new decision was made.

I would live for Someone Else and let my own life fade. 

 

When I confessed His Name and believed with all my might, 

His Word said I would be saved, my black heart turned to white. 

 

Now Jesus lives within me, I've been crucified with Him.

My new life craved Him more; my old life began to dim

 

To know God loved me so much, His own Son He would give.

True love helped me have the strength to die to self and live!
