Jacob

Bending the rules
Tricking and being tricked
Normal way of life…

Seasons change
I am tired of ALL the lies
The tricks
The shortcuts
I can’t live like this anymore
Something has to change
I don’t want to leave this kind of legacy behind
I need a fresh start
My children NEED a fresh start
Their children need a fresh start
A new name
A clean slate

A savior
I need a savior
One who can break these Cycles
Yes!
I will do what it takes
I will fight for this blessing
It is mine!

Paniel
Face to face

Oh no! He wants to leave!
He can’t go without blessing me
Without breaking this curse
Without breaking this cycle!
Help me Lord!  

Eccleciaties 3:15
You determine the seasons
I have learned my lesson
Tomorrow I meet my brother
Full cycle
This is where it all began
I cannot live like this anymore

Dear Lord
Bless me
Save me
Break this cycle  

The man asked him, “What is your name?”“Jacob,” he answered.Then the man said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome.”

Genesis 32:27-28

Paniel
Face to face
With my creator
My help comes from the Lord
Maker of heaven and earth
He has blessed me
Given me a new name

I am His
He is mine
I am not afraid
I will face the future
Come what may
Life is worth living
I will fulfill my purpose
With Jesus by my side
Step by step
Into a new season

Selah
