Lost in the Conflict
When did You lose You?
That loving child, that trusting child, that happy child,
A child of laughter, adventure, curiosity,
A child with a ferocious appetite for life?
Life has a way of enhancing our joy
Or siphoning our strength;
Bringing smiles to our heart, or sadness to our souls.
Ever since the fall (Genesis 3) the internal conflict has raged.
The True You was displaced, removed from the
Garden where true intimacy with JEHOVAH GOD was Our portion,
A place of wholeness, provision, relationship as
Sons and Daughters of Our Creator,
Our purpose to fellowship with the One True GOD,
Thus began Our Identity crisis; the first recorded Identity
Theft (Genesis 3);
If Our belief is not strong, it is easier to go wrong;
Adam and Eve did not pass the Test,
They were talked out of their Identity,
They did not know who they really were.
Life has taken from You and Me
The things in the beginning We Believed.
The disappointments have caused us to stop reaching,
To settle in the valley of despair.
I have Good News —- JEHOVAH GOD sent HIS SON
JESUS to reconcile, restore, revive, reestablish,
To forever resolve our Identity crisis.
Back to The FATHER
Through The SON
The battles over the
Victory is WON
Our relationship restored
Our Identity renewed
Because GOD in
Gave JESUS for Me and You.
“Therefore the redeemed of The Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.” Isaiah 51:11
