Delicious Chicken

Oh boy do I like chicken
Cooked any way is good
Once a week or maybe twice
Those birds provide my food

There are so many methods
To cook a tasty meal
I just admit my favorite
Is shake-n-bake for real

Now in life I’m quite different
Because of what awaits
It’s either glorious heaven
Or a fire that I’ll face

I’ll call out to my Savior
To avoid that fiery lake
He’ll rescue me from all my sin
So I won’t shake-n-bake

What An Awesome Feeling

By faith I claim my healing
From cancer’s ugly snare
Not one small symptom will remain
Good health beyond compare

By faith I am delivered
From such a dread disease
There is no power on earth that lasts
When Jesus sends His peace

What a righteous Savior
Redeemer friend indeed
That by His grace He saved me
Supplied my every need
What an awesome feeling
What a gracious God
That He would give this faith to me
Then bask me in His love

By faith I’ll share my story
So others will gain hope
The Word of God goes forth to bring
An anchor to their soul

By faith I’ll stand before Him
Once again made whole
No power on earth can keep me from
The healing He will show

What a righteous Savior
Redeemer friend indeed
That by His grace He saved me
Supplied my every need
What an awesome feeling
What a gracious God
That He would give this faith to me
Then bask me in His love

I’ll walk by faith in God above
I’ll claim His Word more than enough
I’ll stay within His loving arms
I’ll praise His name with heaven’s song
I’ll count on His unfailing help
I’ll worship God above all else
I’ll lift Him up for all to see
How much my Savior loves me

What an awesome feeling
What a gracious God
That He would give this faith to me
Then bask me in His love
Then bask me in His love

Always Be Kind

As life goes on by us each day
We all have to find a way
To be at peace
And keep others at ease
In hard times and even in play

Our words should be kind and sweet
Our demeanor should not be elite
Amicable smiles
Will carry us miles
As each day one another we greet

I pray that you’ll always be kind
True and honest all of the time
For then we will see
How great life can be
If we’ll only take hold of our mind

That Which Surpasses

I used to love seeing those games
Where everything stays the same
Balls set set strings
Ducks go diving
The pure motion always remains

Perpetual games they were called
And I would get quite enthralled
When my life took a turn
Twas then that I learned
Perpetual is not this at all

The sunrise and sunset each day
The wind and the sun and the rain
These are the things
That surpass everything
When it comes to perpetual ways

These gifts that come from above
Filled with our Father’s love
Will always remain
For His love will not change
His mercy is always enough

Mercy Paintings

I saw the sunset painting hanging in the air so high
So I asked my painter neighbor why he hung it in the sky
He said is was not him who put that painting where it lie
It must have been another one’s surprise

So I asked around the art museum who might be the one
Who hung their painting in the sky when they thought it was done
When I walked back out to see the sight I noticed what had come
A new painting was shining like the sun

Now I was quite perplexed another painting had appeared
Then I noticed that it changed again and I broke down tears
I realized that no earthly one could paint such brilliance here
That God was sending me a message clear

Every moment mercy comes into my life to stay
Just like the brilliant sunset it’s faithful every day
And no one does provide it like the master in His way
I take it so for granted as it fades

From now on I will recognize His mercies all brand new
From the brilliance of a sunrise to the wet of grassy dew
From the singing birds that greet the sun rising with its hue
His mercies do abound for me and you

And when I see the mercy paintings hanging in the sky
There will no longer be a question why it hangs so high
I will know that God does show His love and that He’s always nigh
Then I will l lift His name with praises high

Awesome Redeemer

His glory abounds in the heavens
His light shines o’er all the earth
His hand shows in all of creation
He’s lived with us since His birth

His peace is abundant to all
His joy is unspeakable
His hope will endure forever
His love is remarkable

Oh what a wonderful Savior
Who came down from heaven to die
He took away all of my burden
And gave me eternal life

Oh what an awesome redeemer
Who freely gives us His grace
I look for the day of His coming
For then I shall see His face

And until that day He will keep me
By mercies abundant and free
Forever I’ll give Him my praises
For He is so good to me

Deceiving Myself

As I look back on my youth
All the fun times I used yo have
Seem to pale in reflection of thoughts
That I formed about life and God

As a young adult I would wrangle
Hoping I could hold my own
But I had deceived myself
Into thinking I was alone

In the end His love one out
I no longer question His grace
He’s shown me that I’m His child
Now I’m happy in His embrace

Nothing Can Separate

In every storm I still hear His voice
Calming the wind and the waves
There’s never a time He is not there with me
His peace sustains me always

In every sorrow I know He is there
Comforting me in my grief
He always speaks words that cause me to soar
His joy always brings sweet relief

Nothing can separate me from my Lord
His mercy makes my life whole
His joy and His peace
Are always with me
And His love tarries deep in my soul

When I feel down He lifts my head up
Inclining to hear my prayer
His back never turns away in disgust
His love will always remain

Nothing can separate me from my Lord
His mercy makes my life whole
His joy and His peace
Are always with me
And His love tarries deep in my soul

Through trial and test
He knows what is best
He’ll carry me through
From doubt He’ll rescue
To don’t to fear
He always is near
My Jesus, my Savior, my Lord

Nothing can separate me from my Lord
His mercy makes my life whole
His joy and His peace
Are always with me
And His love tarries deep in my soul

Be At Ease

This world has its troubles that won’t go away
It seems there’s a new disease every day
Just this morning I watched the news and they say
That addiction to video games is not safe

Then there’s cancer and heart disease  flu and a cold
Dementia and Alzheimer’s as we grow old
Lou Gehrig Disease Tommy John elbow
Diabetes and lupus and Crones so much more

Now if any of you have a nasty disease
Especially if you should have one of these
Your situation may be robbing your peace
But I know a way you can be at ease

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
From your understanding now depart
In all your ways let your words give Him praise
And He will direct you all of your days
