Die, Old Man, Die

Die, old man, die
get thee out of my way
I want nothing of yours
so just die and go away.

Die, old man, die
I have no use for you
die to self and to flesh
for in Christ I am new.

Die, old man, die
I’ll not follow your lead
die to worldly ambition
for Jesus is all that I need.

Die, old man, die
you don’t rule this heart
die to all that is keeping
Christ and I apart.

Die, old man, die
I will not let you win
die to all the trappings
I won’t give in to sin.

Die, old man, die
get thee out of my way
for I will die to you . . .
even if I have to every day!

2 Corinthians 5:17
King James Version
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new

creation; old things have passed away;
behold, all things have become new. “

Stressless with Jesus - Stress less within

Stress can turn into something we can't handle on our own. Do not confuse being busy with feeling stressed. Stress can be the controller of your life - or not! If you feel stressed - Remember that the one who walks beside us also lives within us - to give us peace and rest for our souls. We don't need to face a giant on our own. Jesus has the power to release the stress and defeat the giant.
