Let’s Worship

I’ll clap my hands

I’ll lift my voice

I’ll shout His praise

And I’ll rejoice

The King of Kings

Salvation brings

Let’s worship Him today

 

He bore the price

For all my sin

So I would have

A way to win

His grace did reign

That fateful day

As on the cross

My debt He paid

 

He did not balk

He did not fail

He took the whip

He took the nails

He walked the road

He bore His cross

He gave His all

At such a cost

 

They buried  Him

In borrowed tomb

They sealed it tight

A darkened room

The stone rolled back

The soldiers slept

He rose again

His promise kept

 

And now He stands

By Father God

He prays for me

He watches out

His love for all

Reached out to me

Now heaven’s home

Eternally

 

I’ll clap my hands

I’ll lift my voice

I’ll shout His praise

And I’ll rejoice

The King of Kings

Salvation brings

Let’s worship Him today

 

Praise to Jesus

Praise on high

Lift your voice

Unto the sky

Shout His praise

Oh, shout and sing

Loud Hosannas

To the King

Beneath the Light

The stars shine so brightly at night

They really are quite a sight

I love when they twinkle

My heart feels a sprinkle

Of joy as I watch in delight

 

Yet as soon as the sun shows it’s face

The stars are all faded away

And though they’re still there

Way up in the air

They seem to be gone out of space

 

When Jesus came into my life

I faded beneath His pure light

Jesus shines through

In all that I do

I pray that His ligt outshines mine

Faded

Amazing Love

I came running to my Lord today

I had Jesus on my mind

He wrapped His arms around me

And He said “My son, your mine”

A calming reassurance

Flooded through me from above

As He held me close beside Him

I could feel His awesome love

 

Love that overlooks my faults

Love that conquers all

Love that washes sin away

Love that hears my call

His love is amazing

It is with me everyday

I’m not sure what I would do

Without His love today

 

I found that I was lost again

And couldn’t find my way

Somehow, I’d walked away from Him

So I knelt down to pray

I asked Him to draw close to me

And soon I felt Him near

His tenderness surrounded me

And wiped out all my fear

 

Love that wipes away my fears

Love that calms my heart

Love that tells me I’m okay

Love that never parts

His love is amazing

It’s always there for me

Even when I’ve lost my way

He fills my deepest need

 

This time I stayed real close to Him

I did not want to leave

He told me that He loved me

And He’d always be with me

Now I must go tell others

About His wondrous love

So they can know the Savior too

And be blessed by God above

 

Love that took Him to the cross

Love that gave His life

Love that washed away my sin

Love that came to die

His love is amazing

He gave His life for me

And rose again so I could be

With Him eternally

 

I’ll shout about this wondrous love

As long as I have breath

For He has given everything

From birth until His death

I will sing His praises

Everywhere I go

For He is Lord of all the earth

And everyone should know

 

His love is amazing

His love conquers sin

His love is for everyone

His love always wins

His love gives and gives some more

Until the day is done

No one can out give His love

No, not anyone

 

When to Wake?

Today;s Daily Post challenge was One, Two, Three!  I decided to take the last three days and do a short limerick for each one.  I hope this satisfies the requirement

images

Two days ago sleep was real easy

I woke up to sun shining through

I couldn’t believe

That late I did sleep

I was happy I’d finally slept through

earl-morniing-dark

Yesterday I woke up real early

Couldn’t go back to sleep

So I got in my chair

At computer I stared

Until I was fast asleep

one-light

I woke up this morning in darkness

One light on in the house

So I went back to bed

And I laid down my head

Never even waking a mouse

It’s All About Your Heart

I watch the news each morning

And what do I often see

Our cullture seems to be amidst a change

So many feel their slighted

And the balance is not fair

They think the way their treated is quite strange

 

I have news for each of them

Who feel entitlement

To have their own way be the way of life

It wonlt make any difference

What laws are put in placed

Unless you work to make your heart just right

 

The only way to change a heart

Is to give yourself to God

Let Him repair that broken heart with love

Jesus died uopn that cross

To take your sin away

You will find His grace is quite enough

 

So stop the demonstrations

And the murders and the hate

Let’s bring out culture back to moral ground

The heart is all that needs to change

To make our country great again

Today’s the day to let His love abound

 

 

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Culture

Chasing The Blues

Sometimes I just don’t feel like

Lifting up my voice in praise

My mood is down and dreary

And My hands don’t want to raise

There’s  no joy in my heart

My peace has been disturbed

I just want to jump back into bed

Where my moans will not be heard

 

But something deep within me

Starts to stir my spirit ‘round

And from somewhere in my being

A song begins to sound

It’s not a song of mourning

Or of grief or deep despair

But it’s a song of praise

That struggles to find air

 

Hallelujah, He is Lord

He rules the heaven and earth

Hallelujah, He is Lord

I’ll praise His matchless worth

I’ll sing a song of worship

As I lift my voice to Him

Hallelujah, He is Lord

To Him my praise I bring

 

Now I feel much better

My mood has turned around

I feel the peace of God

Praise fills my heart with sound

It’s the sound of heaven’s angels

As they praise the Lord with me

I’m no longer down and dreary

My spirit’s been set free

 

The lesson here today

Is that moods can be erased

Just open up and praise Him

And your blues will leave when chased

Your heart is ready always

To lift His holy name

So, prepare yourself for worship

Let’s lift up Jesus Name!

 

Hallelujah, He is Lord

He rules the heaven and earth

Hallelujah, He is Lord

I’ll praise His matchless worth

I’ll sing a song of worship

As I lift my voice to Him

Hallelujah, He is Lord

To Him my praise I bring

What? I Have Cancer?

 

March was a tough month for me

I was told I had cancer, you see

Now my vigor is gone

And I still have long

To rid  myself of this disease

 

But nothing will change my mind

I will still praise the Lord all the time

He has been good to me

As He gives me mercy

And I know that I’ll end up just fine

 

Maybe you have some disease

You’ve been praying down on your knees

He hears your cry

And he wil supply

As you praise Him, He will bring peace

 

In response to the daily prompt Vigor

Grace is Enough

Though my body is worn and feeble

And I have trouble walking at all

I know that you hear all my prayers

And your grace is enough

 

Though my spirit is troubled with worry

And I can’t seem to muster much faith

I know that you walk beside me

And your grace is enough

 

When all else fails

Your grace comes through

It reaches me

In all I do

There’s nothing else

That I can plead

Because your grace

Is all I need

 

Though my world has been turned upside down

And I can’t seem to find solid ground

I know that you still love me

And your grace is enough

 

Though my enemy keeps getting closer

And I feel surrounded and lost

I know that you’ve won the victory

And your grace is enough

 

I don’t need everything to be perfect

I don’t even need to know why

I just need to know you’re near

For your grace is enough

 

And no matter what comes I will praise you

I will worship your almighty name

Because you are seated in heaven

And your grace is enough

 

When all else fails

Your grace comes through

It reaches me

In all I do

There’s nothing else

That I can plead

Because your grace

Is all I need

Unthinkable Stink!

If you had a choice

To have one simple smell

That would be with you for all time

Would you choose something pungent

That makes you quite sick

Or a sweet smelling savor divine?

 

I’m here to tell you

You do have that choice

It must be made while you’re alive

Because hell is a place

Of unthinkable stink

While heaven has scents so sublime

 

To avoid the bad stink

And eternity’s flames

One choice is all you must make

Accept Jesus Christ

As Lord of your life

And you’ll pass through those heavenly gates

 

 

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Pungent

Ten Lepers

Ten lepers heard that Jesus Christ

Was coming soon their way

He was passing by their camp

It could be most any day

 

They knew that He had healed the sick

And made the lame to walk

He opened eyes and ears for some

And made the deaf to talk

 

So they thought perhaps if He would pray

Their leprosy would go

The called out to Him as He passed

And He turned around real slow

 

Walking over to them, Jesus smiled

And reached out with His hand

He prayed, and touched them one by one

And their sores dried up again

 

Jesus sent them to the priest

And he’d pronounce them clean

Their lives would be restored

They’d return to family

 

Rejoicing, they all went

Down the road to their new lives

But one of them turned back

And came to Jesus side

 

He told the Master thank you

Then Jesus smiled and said

My son, you are made whole

Your body is no longer dead

All your sores are vanished

Your skin again does shine

Now go your way rejoicing

But where are the other nine?

 

The former leper turned to Him

And said I do not know

He thanked Him one more time

And headed down the road

 

You see that simple thank you

Made quite a difference

Instead of only being cleansed

That leper was made whole

No more scars to show His plight

No more nasty skin

He had a new life now to live

Again He would begin

 

The lesson for us all in this

Is to always be aware

When Jesus comes and touches us

That Thank You should be said
