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!

Jesus Warms My Heart

The temperature is frigid
I have to walk the dogs
I’d love to build a fire
And warm up with some logs

But even in this weather
When zero would be warm
I know that deep inside me
My Savior keeps me calm

Jesus warms my heart
His peace comes over me
I feel His gentle hand
As He gently takes the lead

I don’t have to worry
How cold it is outside
Jesus warms my heart
So in Him I’ll abide

As His Own

The Lord sits on His Holy hill
Who can stand opposed
He reigns in royal majesty
From His lofty throne

Filled with all the power
The angels lift His praise
Yet He still looks down on us
And showers us with grace

Holy is He, holy is He
Seated on His throne
Creator of the world below
He loves us as His own

There is no reason I can think
Why He should love us so
Yet daily He will walk with us
His presence all will know

I will join the angels
In choruses of praise
For He alone is worthy
Jesus is His name

Holy is He, holy is He
Seated on His throne
Creator of the world below
He loves us as His own

In Hard Times

Be Still and Know

Be still
And know that I am God
In the middle of your trial
In the middle of your test

Be still
And know that I am God
In the middle of the sorrow
In the middle of the storm

I will never leave you or forsake you
I will always be there when you call
I will walk beside you when you’re lonely
I will lift you up when you fall

Be still
And know that I am God
When all around seems hopeless
When all around seems lost

I will give you strength in ever weakness
I will give you courage when you fear
I will give you faith when doubts assail you
I will run to you
Yes I will run to you
Oh I will run to you
When you call

Here I am
Take my hand
Walk with me
Trust in me
Here I am
Take my hand
Walk with me’
Trust in me

I will never leave you or forsake you
I will always be there when you call
I will walk beside you when your lonely
I will lift you up when you fall
Be still

Walk With Me

I stepped out of the path
That God had planned for me
Every day I found myself
In a place I should not be

I tried to turn and fix my course
But could not find the way
Ready to give up I wept
Then I heard Jesus say

Walk with me my son
I’ll show you the way
You cannot do this on your own
I’ll give you the strength
I’ll hold your hand on every step
Pick you up when you fall
Walk with me through every storm
Fulfill your heavenly call

When I heard His voice I wept
Peace came over me
I knew that it would be all right
He would carry me

I found myself back on the path
That God had led me to
My hope is in the Lord alone
His will now I will do

 

Lift Your Praise

When I woke this morning I heard you
Calling out my name
You said arise and worship
Take time to lift your praise
For I have come to rescue
I’ve come to give you grace
No matter what may come your way
Take time to lift your praise

I determined in my heart right then
That I would praise His name
No matter what the trial
Or temptation I might face
For He alone has power
To free me from disgrace
No matter what may come my way
I will lift His praise

Glory to the Lord most High
Jesus Lamb of God
Hallelujah to His name
Jesus I adore
On the throne eternally
King of Kings is He
Holy, holy is the Lord
Jesus Prince of Peace

Not A Day Goes By

Oh Lord, how I need your power
Lord, how I need your strength
Oh Lord, how I need your wisdom
Every day
Every day

Oh Lord, how need your mercy
Lord, how I need your grace
Oh Lord, how I need the Spirit
Every day
Every day

Not a day goes by that I don’t need you
Showing me the way
Not a day goes by that I don’t get down
On my knees and pray
Not a day goes by that I don’t fall
You’re there to pick me up
You are with me
Every day
Right beside me
Every day
