The Sweet Surrender; in the world to salvation.

Updated on May 25, 2013

Sweet Jesus

Oh Sweet Surrender.

Oh Lord when I think how you were always there for me.

When I sought to the world to see what I could take from thee.

It was in wealth and fame I looked to find.

Moreover, I was disappointed it simply must not be my time.

I sought the world again to see.

Maybe all I was missing was one special key.

I sought for rich’s in a host of awesome things.

Again disappointed I lost most everything.

I sought to the world because I did not find.

The thing to fill the hole I had in this heart of mine.

I knew it had to be out there for me.

The white picket fence with the goodies inside.

A tall handsome man who stood at my side.

That is all I need to fill this empty heart of mine.

When that fell through I did not see why.

I thought I understood God surely knew I truly did try.

I sought for a church to find my way in thee.

Things stayed the same I only longed to be free.

The guilt and remorse made me to cry.

I departed that church and sought to the world again

No need to go back I had the same hole within.

I had much fear and high anxiety.

No wonder people drink and use to try to get free.

Then one day while walking on down the street.

With my precious young daughter close by my feet.

Another failed marriage, I was at my wits end.

Frazzled; I was slipping into numb again.

Did God not see, I had no strength to find?

Why was it I was still lost inside?

Nothing I did measured out with me.

I only stumbled in my mess to try and get free.

Dear God I am on a wild train ride.

I beleive I will soon collide.

I see a sign posted on a small church side.

It said welcome sinners please do come inside.

Well, that was sure me I needed no contemplating.

I opened the door my tears were streaming.

No one was there but somehow I felt free.

I had a peace inside it near swept me off my feet.

Out came a dear woman who spoke quietly with me.

She said to please come this Sunday and bring all the family.

They shared a story on that wonderful April day.

I believe it was for me and I dared to say.

A story about Jesus and how he came for sinners.

He died on the Cross-so our sins would be forgiven.

He takes our life to start anew again.

We do not need to die in guilt and shame.

Believe sweet Jesus repent of sin.

believe in your heart and you will be born again.

Being utterly amazed.

The hole that needed fixing is now redeemed and not afraid.

He molds and transforms His children and enlightens thee.

He cut the chains that once bonded all of me.

His love fills the hole that once was inside.

He is the great love I longed to meet.

He was the sweet surrender I always sought to seek.

He keeps and protects his children when we do stumble.

He helps us rise to stand upon our feet.

We fit into His great and glorious plan.

He has a design for you and for me.

That is how special God created each one of us to be.

He is the best friend who filled this heart of mine.

Do not miss sweet Jesus your light within will truly shine.

If your life is all wonderful, peachy and keen.

But you do not know Jesus, maybe you should re-think it again.

Jesus is the only one who fills the hole inside.

Riches and fame, things and stuff only fade away like the tide.

Wicked and evil long to steal, destroy and kil.

And rob our life by going down hill.

Hallelujah Dear God, sweet Jesus came to rescue us and win.

He conquered the grave and the devil for all that believe in Him.

A child of the living God is who we are created to be.

Oh Sweet Jesus, Wonderful, Counselor, Almighty God and Everlasting Father.

He only wants our love and a relationship with thee.

It does not get better; His precious gifts to his children are free.

All things come together we need only to ask and receive.

The empty fills in with the light of blessed eternity.

Our ears will hear and our eyes will now see.

The way, truth and life Jesus Christ gives for all that choose to believe.

Who do you follow in this life that we are given?

Is it the dark and wicked enemy?

Who comes only to devour and drag down all and any?

Or is it the great IAM, the Lord Jesus Christ?

Who gave His life for you and for me and desires we live now unto eternity

The angels rejoice and sing in love.

When one gives their life to the Saviour from above.

The mountain tops shout glory; the trees do dance and sway.

The living waters flow in His unending grace.

His mercy stands for those once lost now saved.

The King of Kings who lights our way.

Do not be too late call on sweet Jesus this blessed day.

He was the sweet surrender I longed to meet.

He rescued my life and set me on my feet.

If He knocks on your door do let Him in.

Your life will never be the same again.

My Love, Skye

      Lovely poem. You are so right that the secret to happiness and contentment and all the good things we want from life is to simply surrender to God's will and be satisfied with what we have ... right here, right now. Such joy! Voted UP ... beautiful.

      teaches12345 Wow the music is so sweet huh? That was so divinely led it was too much how I landed on that song. God is so amazing. Yes we all have stories, most of them alike in that most of us we were not on a pink cloud when we surrendered to sweet Jesus. It is in our brokeness we are perfected in His image. The words in this poem just came out of me, to paper. Every once in a while I will get led to write a poem and the words dance in my head. It is really cool. Again Glory to God. I am always honored to hear from you sister. I will be over soon for your latest read. You keep going. U will I know it Phil 4:13 Love you teaches. Skye

      "He was the sweet surrender I longed to meet.

      He rescued my life and set me on my feet."

      vinaya Thank You for the visit. I too found meaning in life only when Jesus came into my heart. Before that time I was like a squirrel in a cage running around in circles. I am so grateful I once was lost then found. It is in our experience that we can share with others and hopefully they may be touched. Our trials and tribulations make us stronger or pull us down. When we choose to love Jesus our hearts are transformed. We love only because He loved us first. God Bless you bro.

      Love, Skye

      Oh, thank you for this, I presume, your life story shared, sister Skye.

      It is so true of so many of our stories and the stories we hear from others. Oh to be sure the details are different but at the core, it is the same. Jesus Christ our precious Lord is the one who is a binder of wounds, healer of hearts and restores lives that are lost. Hallelujah. You did an amazing work here. Thank you for proclaiming His Holy name. Voted up and useful, awesome.
