About Pete

I love the Lord. Each day, he gives me words of praise and encouragement, and asks me to share them with you I pray that they minister to you as you read them, share them, or ponder on them. Have a blessed day!

Her Sustains You

 I will sing of the wondrous love of Jesus
 He has given His life for me
 He took stripes on His back for my healing
 He rose again to give me life eternally
  
 I will praise the precious name of Jesus
 He taught me the meaning of love
 He showed me how t treat others around me
 And gave me the pathway to peace
  
 I will worship the mighty name of Jesus
 He brings joy into my weary soul
 He lifts me up when I have fallen down
 And carries me when I am too weak to stand
  
 I will sing glory to the matchless name of Jesus
 Every knee will bow at His feet
 Every tongue will confess he s Lord of Lords
 So I will make Him my King today
  
 Exalt Him, lift Him high
 Sing forth His praise in all the earth
 For it is he that made you
 That gave you breath
 And it is he that sustains you
  
 Exalt Him, lift Him high
 Sing forth His praise in all the earth
 For He has pardoned your transgressions
 And has provided for your redemption.
 I will never cease to praise Him
 For he has been merciful to me.

The Door

 I’m waiting for Jesus to walk through the door
 I need Him today more than ever before
 He has the answer for all of my needs
 So I will wait here, down on my knees
  
 My petitions are simple and He hears them all
 I just have to listen so I’ll know when He calls
 I know that real soon His knock will announce
 That He has a word that He’ll soon pronounce
  
 I bring you healing, He says loud and clear
 I bring you wisdom to soothe all your tears
 I bring you peace that will calm every storm
 I bring you hope that will keep your soul calm
  
 I bring deliverance from Satan’s strong grip
 I bring my armor so you’ll be equipped
 I bring redemption from all of your sins
 I bring salvation to clean you within
  
 I’ll only come in if you answer my call
 I’ll knock on your door and wait in the hall
 Please come and open the door of your heart
 Then I will be with you and never depart 

I Will Wait On You

 I wait on you Lord
 For you give me strength
 You lift me up above the tempest
 You set my feet on higher ground
 You instill peace down in my soul
  
 I wait on you Lord
 For you give me health
 You favor me with your loving breath
 You smile on me as I recover
 You breath life into my soul
  
 I wait on you Lord
 For you give me purpose
 You guide me through hard places
 You show me the path to take
 You whisper to my soul
  
 I wait on you Lord
 You are my all in all
 You are my heart's desire
 You are my everything
 So I wait.

 Gave His life to bear our sins
 Then He rose again

 Power and dominion
 Praise and adoration
 To the King who reigns on high

Something I’ll Always Need

 I’m amazed at His mercy that covers me
 Since the day that He died on Calvary
 He forgave all my sins and set me free
 His mercy is something that I’ll always need
  
 I’m amazed at His grace that blesses me
 One gift to the next to fill every need
 I do not go hungry and have shoes on my feet
 His grace is something that I’ll always need
  
 I’m amazed at His peace that settles my mind
 I know in the difficult times He is kind
 He helps me to see when my own eyes are blind
 He’s peace is something I need in my mind
  
 I’m amazed at His joy that fills up my heart
 In times of great sorrow His joy will not part
 From the dawn to the dusk each moment will start
 With the joy that is something which never departs
  
 I’m amazed at His love that came down to me
 From the time He was born to when he did bleed
 He showed His great love by His death on a tree
 His great love is something that I’ll always need
