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!

I Can’t Help but Praise Him

I can’t help but praise Him when Sorrows come
In the midst of the storm or in the midst of the calm

I can’t help but praise Him when doubts arise
When fear is real and when hope has died

For He has taken my transgressions and covered all my sins
Because of his compassion I’m free to walk with Him

CHORUS
So I lift his name is mighty name the mighty name of Jesus
I lift His mighty name. The mighty name of Jesus

I can’t help but praise him when my life is a mess
I can always count on his faithfulness

For He has taken my transgressions and covered all my sins
Because of his compassion I’m free to walk with Him

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I lift my hands I lift my voice and I sing Hallelujah
I lift my hands I lift my voice and I sing Hallelujah

CHORUS

Praise & Worship

I Can

I can hear Him
Gently speaking
In a whisper
Above the noise of this world
Kind words
Gentle words
Words of life and hope
Words that lift me out of darkness
Into light
I can hear Him

I can see Him
Shining brightly
Everywhere
In all of His creation
The stars
And the birds
Testify of His presence
His presence that is always near me
Without question
I can see Him

I can feel Him
Flowing softly
Through my being
Letting me know He is near
Holding me
Helping me
Walking close beside me
Carrying me when I fall down
He is there
I can feel Him

Oh God of wonder
How precious you are
How wonderful your ways
You fill my days
With your great grace
Your mercy runs
When I am down and out
You always pull me through
And then I know
No matter what comes
With you right here
I can

You Provide Everything

When I am down
You pick me up
When I am dry
You fill my cup
When I am tired
Your strength is enough
You [provide everything

When I have doubts
You give me faith
When I feel hopeless
You’re never late
When I face trials
You send me your grace
You provide everything

CHORUS
All that I need is from you
All I could want
All I desire
All that I need is from you
Help me to trust only you

When I mess up
Mercy finds me
When I face storms
You are my peace
When sorrow comes
Your joy surrounds me
You provide everything

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I can not do it myself
I can not make it myself
I can not handle this life on my own
Lord I depend on you

CHORUS

Rearranged

I was running far away from you
Lost in sin not knowing what to do
Wasn’t looking for a change
Thought I had life all arranged
Then you came running to me

When I heard of your deep love for me
How you died that day on Calvary
Tears welled up and filled my eyes
My mouth opened up and cried
Thank you Lord for running to me

I’m so glad you came running
I’m so glad you searched me out
I’m so blessed by your great love for me
You came running to me
You came running to me

Now I stand on your great promises
Every day I’m feeling free and blessed
I’m no longer bound in chains
My life has been rearranged
All because you came running to me

I would never have found you on my own
I would never have known your love
Yet you sought me out
Turned me about
You never gave up on me
You never gave up on me

I’m so glad you came running
I’m so glad you searched me out
I’m so blessed by your great love for me
You came running to me
You came running to me

Your Still Small Voice

I want to hear your voice
When the sunrise dawns
I want to hear your voice
When the sandman yawns
I want to hear your voice
Above all the noise
That crowds into my mind

I want to hear your voice
Not the enemies rants
I want to hear your voice
By my choice not chance
I want to hear your voice
To know in advance
Your plans for my life

CHORUS
Your voice is always directed at me
Your words are meant to bring me peace
Let not an hour go by, Oh Lord
That I don’t hear your still small voice

I want to hear your voice
When I wander away
I want to hear your voice
As it calls me to pray
I want to hear your voice
So I’ll know the way
To draw closer to you

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Speak into my life this hour
Speak to me and show your power
There’s power in your voice
Power when you speak
Speak into my life today

CHORUS

Jesus Is Your Name

Lord I sing your praise
To this generation
Lord I lift my voice up
To your holy name
You alone are worthy
To be lifted higher
With every breath you give me
I will sing your praise

Glory, glory to you Lord
Glory, glory to you Lord
Glory, glory to you Lord
Jesus is your name
Jesus is your name

Holy, holy are you Lord
Holy, holy are you Lord
Holy, holy are you Lord
Jesus is your name
Jesus is your name

Everywhere You Are There

As I wake from my sleep in the morning you are there
As I walk down the street in the noontime you are there
When I lay my head down in the evening you are there
I can help but rejoice
And lift up my voice
Because I know you are there

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
I praise you for you are there
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
I praise you for you are there

In the hardest of times when I need you you are there
When I can’t seem to find a way through you are there
If I wander away from your path you are there
‘No matter what I might do
You’ll always see me through
For everywhere you are there

In the mountains of life
In the valley of death
In the sea of despair
In the storms that I face
In the good times
In the bad times
In everything you are there

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
I praise you for you are there
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
I praise you for you are there
