As I Am

Who knows where the waves take form and start out?

Who knows where they travel, or when they will stop?

Who knows how high or how far they will go?

Only the God I serve

 

Who knows where the clouds have taken their shape?

Of how big they’ll get, or when dissipate?

Who guilds them at morn and paints them at night?

Only the God I serve

 

Our God is amazing, He knows everything

From the depths of all nature to what makes birds sing

His wisdom is more than imaginable

And He loves me just as I am.

 

Who placed the stars and calls them by name?

Who has arranged them to show us His grace?

Who knows how for their light will stay bright?

Only the God I serve

 

Our God is incredible.  There’s no one like Him

He sits in the on His throne and controls everything

Yet He still takes the time to hear when I pray

And He loves me just as I am.

 

So I will lift up His praise to the sky

I’ll shout from the rooftops as others pass by

My God is the one who can transform your lives

And He loves you just as you are.

The Great Escape

Lions and tigers and bears oh my

Roar out their power as we pass by

Fierce is the word that we use to describe

Their countenance on this earth

 

But fiercer still is the wrath of God

I don’t want to be in His anger caught

And there’s only one way to avoid the onslaught

That will come to those who don’t believe

 

Jesus, the way the truth, the life

You need to accept His sacrifice

He is the great escape for your life

Trust Jesus, and you will be saved.

 

In response to the Daily Prompt Fierce

Closer

I want to be closer.  Closer to your side

I want to be nearer.  Never let me hide

I want to be purer.  As I walk through life

I want to be yours.  In you I will abide

 

There is never a time you will leave my side

But I may wander away

When I do I can rest assured you abide

In my heart each and every day

 

You promised you’ll never leave or forsake me

Even if I should mess up

When I find myself far from where I should be

You come and fill my cup

 

When I cannot hide from the trials I face

I just want to walk away

But you come and guide me to a peaceful place

Where I can bow and pray

 

These are the reasons I trust in you

Every promise I know is true

You will be with me my whole life through

Jesus, my Lord

Fruit For Life

Flooding up within my soul
Your Spirit comes to make me whole
Bringing with it fruit for life
Filling me with sheer delight

Joy unspeakable fills my heart
Overtakes all other parts
Fear no longer bothers me
Because His joy makes me complete

Peace that passes knowledge comes
Soothes my mind from what I’ve done
Worry ’bout the future gone
Now that peace has overcome

Patience, goodness, faith thrown in
Measured full from His blessing
I know He is in control
In His time all things will flow

Temperance, meekness,  gentleness
My life free from all my mess
Overcoming victory
That’s what His fruit brings to me

Over all His love abounds
Sets my feet on solid ground
Love that transcends everything
Washes over all my sin

Fruit for life this is to me
Giving me a life that’s free
Free from all of life’s dismay
Free to praise Him all my days

Go To God

If you had a Rolex watch

And it was not working properly

You would take it to an expert Rolex watchmaker

 

If you had an expensive camera

And the pictures were not coming out clear

You would take it to an expert in cameras

 

Any piece of equipment we have

If it is broken

And we would want it repaired

We would take it to

An expert

 

So why do we seek out all kinds of help

When we are broken

Or run down

Or needing help

Instead of going  to the expert

The God who formed us in our mother’s womb

The God who created all things by His word

The God who loves us more than we can imagine

 

Next time your life is just not working

Go to the expert

Go to God

His Amazing Love

Higher than the mountains

Wider than the oceans

Deeper than the canyons

That’s His love for me

 

Purer than spring water

Makes us sons and daughters

Fills our heart with wonder

That’s His love for me

 

What amazing love He has for me

When He gave His life on Calvary

He left His royal throne

To come and die alone

All so I could be set free

 

Always sends His blessings

Joy that’s never ending

Fills me so my heart sings

That’s His love for me

 

Peace that calms my heart’s cry

Guides me safely through trials

His Spirit teaches me life

That’s His love for me

 

What amazing love He has for me

He rose from death and lives again

And one day He’ll return

To bring me home with Him

To a mansion He’s prepared just for me

 

What amazing love He has for me

I can only lift my voice and sing

Jesus is His name

I’ll give all my praise

Forever He will be my Lord and King

Awake, My Soul

 

Awake, my soul, awake
For the King is drawing nigh
Arise and lift your praises
To Jesus, Lord most high
His majesty is radiant
His glory fills the sky
Awake, my soul, awake
The King of Heaven is close by

A week of toil and labor
Has left my spirit dry
My daily meditation
Has silently slipped by
I need a restoration
Of my spirit here today
So open up the heavens
As I lift my voice in praise

I enter in the church door.
And I hear the choir sing
Amazing grace how see the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I marvel at God’s mercy
And I feel my spirit soar
Hallelujah is the chorus
That the choir has in store

Awake, my soul, awake
For the King is drawing nigh
Arise and lift your praises
To Jesus, Lord most high
His majesty is radiant
His glory fills the sky
Awake, my soul, awake
The King of Heaven is close by

The congregation sings
And they lift their worship high
I can feel the Spirit moving
As King Jesus passes by
My spirit is uplifted
I feel revival here
Being in thus corporate worship
Is exactly what I need

So I lift my voice to praise Him
That He brought me to this place
There’s no substitute for worship
With the saints who seek His face

Awake, my soul, awake
For the King is drawing nigh
Arise and lift your praises
To Jesus, Lord most high
His majesty is radiant
His glory fills the sky
Awake, my soul, awake
The King of Heaven is close by

Have You Seen the Lord?

Have you seen the Lord today?

Looked in His eyes?

Have you walked down His street?

Have you stopped to say Hi?

 

There was that beggar who asked you for bread

You walked on by, hanging your head

You had the money to spare him a dime

But you did not want to take the time

 

You passed by a lame man trying to walk

Your spirit said help him, but the flesh just balked

You watched as he fell and tried to get up

But you did not want to stay and get stuck

 

Then there’s that girl who asked you the time

She said she was late, but you drove on by

You were going her way with plenty of room

But you were afraid she would do harm to you

 

Have you seen the Lord today?

Looked in His eyes?

Have you walked down His street?

Have you stopped to say Hi?

 

Jesus said even when I do it for them

It is the same as I’d done it for Him

If I’d look in their eyes, I’d see my Lord

As He asks me to help His floundering child

 

When will I learn to reach out in faith

And help those in need when they pass by my way

God showed me His mercy when I was so lost

Now I must reach out and help His dear cause

 

Every day we’d see the Lord if we’d look

Every day we can do what he says in His book

Every day we can show grace to meet needs

Every day we must reach out and believe

 

Have you seen the Lord today?

Looked in His eyes?

Have you walked down His street?

Have you stopped to say Hi?

No Mistake

When God called me I wondered

If there was some mistake

I was just a sinner

Far away from grace

But then I met my Savior

He washed away my sin

And now I serve the Lord of Lords

This changes everything

 

He fills me with His Spirit

His peace and joy abound

His love is overwhelming

My soul found solid ground

I’ve learned that He knows all

And there are no mistakes

So If He calls to you today

Just trust His love and grace

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Mistake

My Past Has Passed

Your love is more than I can fathom
Your hope is way beyond compare
I can’t imagine why you chose to save me
When all I did was mock your name

When I fall into sin you send mercy 
When trials come around you lend grace
I see your hand surround me when I wander
And gently lead me back to your embrace

You see my future.  I see my past 
I need to learn that you always know what’s best
That when the trials of life come in I need to rest
You know my future.  My past has passed

I have been blessed by the joy that you give

It overwhelms me each day that I live

Your peace is a river that flows slow and free

I am so thankful that you have blessed me

 

When sickness of pain should enter my life

I know that you’ll heal me in your chosen time

And if I should lose someone real close to me

I know that your spirit will comfort my grief

You see my future.  I see my past 
I need to learn that you always know what’s best
That when the trials of life come in I need to rest
You know my future.  My past has passed

I can’t praise you enough for what you have done

Or for what you are going to do

So I yield control to your marvelous plan

And I lift my worship to you
