Marvel

Grass dusted with dew
Dawn coming in view
Stars glittering bright
Moon absent from light

Birds greeting the day
Leaves falling like rain
Breeze gentle and cool
Freeze coming real soon

Marvel at His creation
Wonder that’s ever-changing
One day differs from others
All as a gift from the author

Precious each passing moment
Our job to be a witness
All who love this creation
Need to know their situation

Heaven or hell does await them
Their choice determines the outcome
Choose Christ and His wondrous mercy
Or fall to the depths of pure misery

He’ll make you a new creation
When you give Him your life without caution
Repent of your sin
Ask Jesus in
He’ll build you a mansion in heaven

Marvel at His creation
He’s made you an heir to His glory
Love, peace, joy and hope
Will fill up your home
As you tell His marvelous story

The Gift of Love

He’s given me life everlasting
And a joy this world cannot afford
But it’s only for me
When I bow on my knee
And make Him my Savior and Lord

Some think they are saved by their actions
That His grace covers them through their lives
His Word shows one way
That you can be saved
The blood that He shed must apply

It’s a gift of love that must be received
A gift of love that you must believe
A gift of love that covers your sins
You must ask the Savior to come live within

If you are not sure that heaven’s your home
If you have depended on your deeds alone
Repent of your sin
Give your life to Him
This gift of love then you will know

It’s a free gift and you must accept it
It’s there in the Saviors hands
Just humble yourself
And ask for His help
Receive Jesus Christ as your Lord

It’s a gift of love that must be received
A gift of love that you must believe
A gift of love that covers your sins
You must ask the Savior to come live within

Rise up

From the ashes I rise

As I look in His eyes

I soar to the skies 

Like an eagle 

My sins are erased

By His glorious grace

My heart filled with praise

For my Savior

Rise up

Let His love by your guide 

Rise up

As He walks by your side

Rise up

Let the world know about His great love 

Rise up

He has given new life

Rise up

Let your voice testify 

Rise up

Let us boldly go forth for the Lord

Now heaven’s my home

I’m at peace in my soul

Jesus paid what I owed

At the cross

There’s a mansion for me

By the clear crystal sea

That’s where I will be

Evermore 

Rise up 

See the glory He brings

Rise up

Jesus Christ King of Kings

Rise up

Let the world know about His great love

Rise up

Your purpose is clear

Rise up

The world needs to hear

Rise up

Let us boldly go forth for the Lord 

We shall rise on wings like eagles 

We shall walk and not be faint

We shall run and not be weary

As we rise

He will give us words of wisdom

He will teach us how to pray

He will always go before us

To prepare the way 

So rise up 

Be a witness bold and strong

Rise up

For His coming won’t be long

Rise up

Tell them all the battles won

Rise up

Rise up

Rise up

Can You Hear Me?

Can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear my still, small voice?
Or is the noise of this world all you hear?
Can you hear me calling you?
It’s time to make your choice
Will you follow the world or follow me?
Will you follow the world or follow me?

When the trials that you face become too much to bear
And the storms of life are drowning out my voice
That is the time for you to wait and pray
And not give in to a worldly choice

These are many times that you are searching for the truth
And you cannot figure out which way is clear
Your friends will try to calm you with their words
And when I speak, I know it’s hard for you to hear.

For I will tell you that my plans for you are always for your good
And that I’ll always be right here by your side
The storms and trials are oh so big and you don’t know what to do
I can give you peace when you are mine

Can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear my still, small voice?
Or is the noise of this world all you hear?
Can you hear me calling you?
It’s time to make your choice
Will you follow the world or follow me?
Will you follow the world or follow me?

Focus

In the morning I put in my contacts
When I look up they need to align
I take a quick wink
Then hurry a blink
And finally my focus arrives

My phone has a nice built in camera
That I use rather sparingly
My hand has a shake
Like a mild earthquake
The focus just won’t quite agree

There are times my mind wanders from reason
I just can’t seem to focus on God
I’ve succumbed to sin
Or I’ve struggled within
I have walked off the path of the Lord

When a finally realize what’s happened
I need to repent of my ways
Just bow my head down
Kneel in prayer on the ground
Asking God to forgive my disgrace

He is faithful and just to forgive me
He’ll restore me to His righteous side
His joy and His peace
Will put me at ease
As my focus in Him does abide

God Thinks of Me

Why should I ever worry
Why should I ever doubt
Why should I ever fear inside
When His thoughts are on me

Why should I fuss and fret
Why should I lose my peace
Why should my joy be down
When His mind is stayed on me

His thoughts are precious
Precious toward me
His thoughts are countless
Like sand by the sea
I cam not fathom
His love for me
His thoughts are precious
Precious to me

Why would my troubles throw me
Why would I oft feel lonely
Why would my hope escape me
When His precious thoughts touch me

Mercy abounding
Grace everlasting
Joy overflowing
Peace overwhelming
These are His thoughts
Precious toward me

His thoughts are precious
Precious toward me
His thoughts are countless
Like sand by the sea
I cam not fathom
His love for me
His thoughts are precious
Precious to me

His Presence

Brand new psalm of praise this morning.  the YouTube video link is at the bottom.  Let me know what you think!

I can sense Him
Sense His presence
As I lift my
Hands in Praise

He is close now
Holy Spirit
Come and fill my
Heart today

Holy Holy God Almighty
Unto you our voices raised
Holy Holy Lamb of Heaven
Worthy of my highest praise

He is here now
In our presence
Heaven on earth
In this place

Holy Holy God Almighty
Unto you our voices raised
Holy Holy Lamb of Heaven
Worthy of my highest praise

What a wonder you are
What a marvelous God
What a presence is here
When your Spirit is near (REPEAT)

Holy Holy God Almighty
Unto you our voices raised
Holy Holy Lamb of heaven
Worthy of my highest praise

 

His Presence

Make the Time

If I wait until I have the time I’ll fail to ever praise Him

My day is always full of things to do 

I have time to eat and sleep and work a list I made ahead

Making sure I do the things I have to do

If I look around to find the time I’ll fail to lift my worship

The time to finish all just can’t be found 

My list just keeps on growing from one day to the next

Worshiping is just some time that can’t be found 

I’ve heard both of these stories 

I’ve heard their seeming truth

So here is what I recommend you do

Make the time

Make it first 

Before the day consumes all time

Before your day gets out of line 

Make the time

Put Him first

Lift up your voice in praise

Let holy hands be raised

Make the time 

You say your time is limited you have so much to do

There aren’t enough hours left in any day

These things down on your list are a must from dawn til dark 

If you tell me that here is what I’ll say

Five minutes earlier ten is better yet

Before you get one foot away from bed

Lift your praises high let your worship begin

His glory will soon fill your heart and head

Then you’ll find your day goes better

You’ll have more to get things

You’ll find time to give Him thanks along the way

Make the time

Make it first 

Before the day consumes all time

Before your day gets out of line 

Make the time

Put Him first

Lift up your voice in praise

Let holy hands be raised

Make the time 

You Are Amazing

This was one of the first full songs I wrote back in 2011, and is still one of my favorites.  The link at the bottom is to my video recording of the song..

I can see the birds fly
I can see the trees wave.
I can see the clouds roll by in splendor
I can see the sun rise
I can see the star shine
So how can I not see your majesty

You are amazing
You take my breath away.
So Amazing.
I marvel every day
Oh Lord Open up my heart
And show me how amazing you are

I can hear the bird sing
I can hear the north wind
I can hear the lightning clap with thunder
I can hear the wave crash
I can hear the rain splash
So how can I not hear when you call to me

You are amazing
You take my breath away.
So Amazing.
I marvel every day
Oh Lord Open up my heart
And show me how amazing you are

Every day through all me senses
You are calling out to me
Hoping to get through so that I’ll
Know that you’re in love with me
All that you desire
Is just to walk with me
Lord, Open up my heart,
Please open up my heart

I can feel the snow flake
I can feel the earth quake
I can feel the summer heat surround me
I can feel the wind blow
I can feel the stream flow
So how can I not feel your love to me

You are amazing
You take my breath away.
So Amazing.
I marvel every day
Oh Lord Open up my heart
And show me how amazing you are

You Are Amazing

He’s the One

I never will forget
The day He set me free
When I learned about the cross at Calvary
I never will forget
His sacrifice that day
Mercy flowed from His wounds and rendered grace

He took all of my shame
He healed my every pain
The burden of my sin was lifted off
He gave me peace within
He broke off all my chains
Gave me faith and hope instead of all my doubt

Who is this King of Kings
Who is this Lord of Lords
That He would care about this lowly man of sin
Who is this Savior
Who is this Mighty God
His name is Jesus He’s the one.

He’s the one who made all things
He’s the one who all life brings
He’s the one who came to earth
He’s the one with lowly birth
He’s the one who healed the lame
He’s the one who had no blame
He’s the one who died for me
He’s the one who set me free

His name is Jesus
His name is Jesus
Son of God Word of life Light to all
His name is Jesus
His name is Jesus
Lord of Lords King of Kings He’s the one

I made a video with the melody to this one this morning. Its a rough video, but it gives you what God put in my head.

 

He’s the One
