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!

Safely Back to You

I was lost on the waves of the storms of life
Being tossed all about feeling so uptight
Hope was lost that I’d ever turn upright
Suddenly He came to me

Called my name out loud through the whirling wind
I had heard that voice so I knew it was Him
I stepped out of the boat and I walked to Him
Walking high above the waves

When I looked out on the wind and waves
I began to sink ‘neath the water ways
He reached out His hand and I found His gaze
Looking deep inside my heart

He brought me back to the storm tossed boat
That He calmed the sea set us back afloat
Suddenly a calm came into my soul
I knew all would be all right

Oh sweet Jesus take my hand
Help me please to understand
Why these storms keep tossing me
Off the path you have for me
Of sweet Jesus guide my way
Stay close by my side each day
When I’ve fallen off the path
Bring me safely back to you

To Die For Us

What a light
What a light so bright
Came down to us
To die for us

What a child
What a lowly child
Came down to us
To die for us

King of glory
Lord of all things
We come now to bow before you
God of wonder
Radiant splendor
You have given us your son

What a day
He went to the grave
Three days later He arose
He came to save us

King of glory
Lord of all things
We come now to bow before you
God of wonder
Radiant splendor
You have given us your son

To redeem us
To restore us
To return us back to you

King of glory
Lord of all things
We come now to bow before you
God of wonder
Radiant splendor
You have given us your son

Great is Your Name

I can’t believe
That you loved me
In spite of my sin and my shame
When I was lost
You paid the cost
Since then I am not the same

I’m no longer dead
Your word I have read
Your truth has given me life
Now I will rejoice
I’ll lift up my voice
I’ll give you my praise sacrifice

Worthy, you are worthy
Holy, you are holy
Righteous, you are righteous
Lord of my life
King of my days
Worthy, you are worthy
Holy, you are holy
Jesus, you are Jesus
Great is your name
Great is your name

Mighty is Our God

Lord of all Lords I love you
King of all Kings I praise you
God of all Gods I worship your name
Mighty is our God

I will lift up my voice to praise you
I will lift up my hands to praise you
I will lift up my heart to worship your name
Mighty is our God

Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Mighty is our God

The Splendor of Your Spirit

Beauty all around me
Everywhere I see
Mercy overwhelming
Grace that blesses me

Peace is like a river
Joy flows up within
Love is like an ocean
Cleansing me from sin

Oh the glory
Of your presence
Everywhere I look
You are always there
Oh the splendor
Of your Spirit
Guiding me
Saving me
Hiding me
Surrounding me
With your love

Into the Wilderness

This is an old song I wrote from 2012. I felt the Holy Spirit telling me to post it this morning. I pray it blesses you.

My life is filled with ups and downs trying to find my way around
In a world that keeps me guessing everyday
And when I pray I just don’t know if the answer’s coming slow
Or if he’s showing me his plan another way.

CHORUS
He leads me into the wilderness from the mountaintop
He rows me into the storm then he calms the sea
I don’t need to know where he’s leading me or what he’s going to do
For I know that all he does is for my good

I will follow where he leads me
I will go when he says go
If he opens up a door I will walk through
And if he suddenly turns quiet and I cannot hear his voice
I will wait…..I will wait

CHORUS

END
I will wait. I will wait. I will wait on the Lord. I will wait

Words of Love

When I stop and closely listen
When I calm the thoughts inside
When I take the time to be still
When my inner man I find

Then I hear His gentle voice
Speaking words of love to me
I just want to hear him more
So I ask the Lord to speak

He says
I love you
I bled for you
I died for you
I rise again
I walk with you
I hear your prayers
I know your needs
I’m everywhere

One He says these things I know
I must lift my hands in praise
For the blood he shed for me
I just worship His sweet name

Jesus, Jesus
How I love you so
Jesus, Jesus
I’m so glad I know you

He says
I love you
I bled for you
I died for you
I rise again
I walk with you
I hear your prayers
I know your needs
I’m everywhere
