Implicit Trust

I trust the Lord
Implicitly
No doubt
No confusion
No wondering

Many times
It’s not a matter of what
Or How
Or Why

It’s a matter of when
The answer will come

It’s in His hand
And on His schedule
Because
He knows what’s best
For me.

So I learn to wait
Wait for healing
Wait for deliverance
Wait for understanding
Wait for Him
 
And in my waiting
I praise Him
I rejoice
In His mercy
And grace

What an awesome God
I serve
He gives so much
To me
When I lift up
My prayer
He hears me
Yes  He hears me
What an awesome God
I serve

Get A Boost

It won’t make us faster
Or taller or thinner
When we give our hearts to the Lord
It won’t make us stronger
Or better or purer
To start to rely on His word

But He promises us
He will quicken our bodies
That means we will be more alive
Most days I need a good
Boost to my spirit
So I’m glad to give Him my life

Friend To All

I looked up at the Lord
And He saw me
He saw my pain
And misery
He brought me out
And set me free
What a Savior
What a friend

I cried unto the Lord
He heard my plea
Then He came
And rescued me
He’s always near
Where I will be
What a Savior
What a friend

Savior of the world He is
Crowned with love and righteousness
Friend to all who call His name
I will always sing His praise
 
I waited for my Lord
To strengthen me
As I lift up
My prayer of need
Until the answer
I would see
What a Savior
What a friend

Savior of the world He is
Crowned with love and righteousness
Friend to all who call His name
I will always sing His praise

Merciful to me, so merciful
Loving me despite my sins
His grace is given out
His love is without doubt
He’s always there to help me win

Savior of the world He is
Crowned with love and righteousness
Friend to all who call His name
I will always sing His praise
Friend to all who call His name
I will always sing His praise
 

Quiet Ruled The Nght

Sometime in the night
I heard Him call my name
Quietly whispering His sweet words to me
I waited for His words
Yearning for His voice
Hoping He would tell me what would be

But quiet ruled the night
He did not speak again
I tried to recall what my Lord had said
His whisper was so faint
And I was half awake
I wasn’t sure what words were in my head

I took up pen and paper
And started to write down
Hoping it would spark my memory
But once I got the story down
Of how He woke me up
There was no more to write that I could see

I realized I’d missed it
I waited much to long
To write the words my Lord had said too me
I pondered getting up
To write what He had said
And once I took the pen the words did flee

A sadness filled my heart
As I lay back down to sleep
I knew that I had missed His word this time
I promise Him the next time
He starts to speak to me
I’ll quickly rise and write down every line.

If you’re awakened in the night
By the still small voice of God
Make sure you have a pen and paper near
You never know what He may say
Or what words will speak to you
Just open up your heart and lend an ear

The Narrow Gate

Not to the left
Not to the right
Will I find your way, oh Lord
Right down the middle
I’ll center my life
On the straight and narrow path

For wide is the gate
And broad the path
That leads to destruction down here
Narrow the gate
And straight the path
That leads to my heavenly home

Don’t Wiggle!

First, I start to giggle
Then there is wiggle
As I see this word today to prompt us all
My belly starts to jiggle
As I start that silly giggle
Like a bowl of jello ready to devour

But as I give it thought
I realize it’s not
Such a funny word to laugh about
There’s one place I can’t jiggle
Or give a little wiggle
In the word of God I must be stout

You see there is no doubt
What Jesus was about
Love and mercy were His stock in trade
If we’re to follow Him
Then love for all must win
Our wiggling and jiggling must fade

Nowhere Fast

The life I lived was full of drink
Not water I’m afraid
I never thought I’d stop and think
How helpless I became

My life was going nowhere fast
My arid soul was weak
Then someone helped me know at last
It’s Jesus I should seek

I looked into the word of God
The living water flowed
That day I took Him as my Lord
His life did fill my soul

He rescued me in every way
He gave me life brand new
If you are struggling day by day
He’ll do the same for you

Lend Him An Ear

Sometimes I feel all grown up
Like I knew all  needed to know
Then someone comes
And makes me feel dumb
My ego has nowhere to go

It is then I am meek as a baby
And I try to take in every word
For there’s so much to learn
The truth I do yearn
As I hear the sweet voice of my Lord

It is time to rely on the bible
And the wisdom that God has put there
He will show us the way
Teach us day after day
If we only will lend Him and ear

I Adore You, Lord

I adore you, Lord
From the breaking of the dawn
Right through the dark night
I adore you,  Lord

I adore you, Lord
When my days are dreary
Or when they are bright
I adore you, Lord

I adore you, Lord
On days when I’m restful
Or when I must fight
I adore you, Lord

Not a day will go by
Not a minute shall pass
That I will not praise your name
In the midst of my trials
Or when I have pain
I’ll lift up my voice in praise

I adore you, Lord
When life goes my way
Or when I have to wait
I adore you, Lord

I adore you, Lord
When blessings do flow
Or when life gets too hard
I adore you, Lord

It’s not for the blessings
It’s not for your grace
That I love to praise your name
It’s just because you
Are my God up above
That I will continue to praise

Not a day will go by
Not a minute shall pass
That I will not praise your name
In the midst of my trials
Or when I have pain
I’ll lift up my voice in praise
