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!

Minister Grace

At the end of the day when I’m weary
And I’m ready to lay down my head
I think back on the things that have happened
And the words that were flippantly said

I don’t know why I spoke things I shouldn’t
I don’t know why my words slipped out wrong
But I know that now when I look back
I ask forgiveness before long

Let the words of my mouth be cautious
Let the thoughts in my mind show mercy
Let my spirit be full of your great great love
So that I might minister grace

As I lay my head down I pray softly
Asking God to help me tomorrow
I desire that my words will flow gently
To help all that they touch see my Lord

Words of love and peace
Words of joy and hope
Words of salt and light
Words of grace thats bold

Let the words of my mouth be cautious
Let the thoughts in my mind show mercy
Let my spirit be full of your great great love
So that I might minister grace

Inner Peace

I still remember when I came to Jesus
And asked Him to forgive all of my sin
He did not hesitate
To wash me clean that day
I felt His peace sweep over me within

And since that day I’ve even grown much fonder
Of what my Savior did for me that day
It was so long ago
Yet it still seems as though
Each day my heart is cleansed once again

I need Him every day
I need Him so I pray
Each day I ask Him to renew my vow
I need His joy and peace
His love will never cease
To fill my heart with all that He bestows

I hope that you have asked Jesus to save you
And wipe away the sin that’s in your life
Repent of all today
Let Jesus guide your way
He died as your redeeming sacrifice

By His grace He saved you
By His grace He gave you
Freedom from the sin that troubled you
By His mercy He
Will bring you inner peace
Just ask Him in your heart today

Precious Lord and Savior
I fall down at your feet
Please let me stay here for eternity
You are all I could want
All that my heart desires
My Lord of Life how I love you so

Then Alpha and Omega

He is the Alpha
The beginning
He was before anything else was
He spoke and there was Light
Before that only darkness ruled
He spoke the world into existence
He formed the sun
The moon and the stars
With His voice
The plants and trees
Came forth at His command
The animals and birds and fish
The insects
Flying and crawling insects
Appeared when He spoke
All of creation came forth by His Word
Except man
He formed man from the dust of the ground
With His tender loving hands
Every organ
Every muscle
Every bone
Hundreds of miles of veins and arteries
An intricate web of nerves
All assembled by His hand
Then He breathed life into the man
The only part of creation that was not spoken into existence
But lovingly
And carefully crafted
Molded like clay
Then He made the woman from man
From a rib He formed her
She was formed to be with Him
The same tender care went into forming her
As forming him
She is his helpmate
Because man needed help
Help to see his faults
Help to walk with God
Help to survive
He looked at all the creation He had made
And said it is good
Everything that is was made by Him
Nothing came by itself
He is the Alpha

He is the Omega
Time does not have hold on Him
He will be until forever
Until there is no more time
Even then he will still be
He will still be guiding us
Watching over us
Caring for us
Providing for us
As He made all things in the beginning
He will keep all things going for eternity
There is no end to Him
He will not die
He will not fade away
He will not disappear
He will be there
When we need Him
When we long for Him
He will come to our side
His Word will also be there
His Word will never fail
Every promise
Every prophecy
Every hope
Will come to pass
And will last for all time
When time is no more
He will still go on
His Word will still go on
His love will still go on
He is the Omega

Yesterday He is the same
Tomorrow He is the same
Today He is the same
He never changes
He is still creator
He still molds us
And shapes us
As a potter does the clay
So are we in His hands
He never stops loving us
Caring for us
Providing for us
Delivering us
Guiding us
Protecting us
From the very beginning
Until the very end
His love will not change
It will always remain
You can depend on it
Moe than the sunrise
More than the stars that shine
More than the day and night
More than anything
You can depend on His Word
It will never fail
It will never return void
His Word will accomplish what He desires
Every time
It will move your mountains
It will dispel your enemies
It will provide your needs
It will comfort your sorrow
It will turn storms into peace
It will guide you on your way
His Word is who He is
Forever and forever
The Alpha
The Omega
The here and now
Always the same
Always remains

Serving the Lord

Sweet Words

I am constantly reminded of my failures
By the enemy that lurks inside my mind
Hew takes every opportunity to mock me
And to make me feel I’ve really missed the mark

It’s so easy to give ear to what he’s saying
For I always seem to think that I fall short
But if I listen closely there’s another voice
Speaking words that cause me peace and joy

Sweet words of Jesus
Words of life
Words that bring healing
Words that end strife
Sweet words of wonder
Words of grace
Words that uplift me
To a higher plane

Now I choose to shut out the enemy
Who would fill my mind with fear and doubt
I will listen to the words of my Savior
In the midst of my trials He’ll bring me out

Sweet words of mercy
Words of faith
Words that deliver
Words that save
Sweet words of His love
Spoken in my ear
Words that bring life
To all who hear

Open up His word
Listen everyday
There is so much
He has to say
Sweet words of Jesus
Spoken to you
Follow His word
In all you do

Praise & Worship

Here I Am

When the enemy is rising up against you
When it seems you have nowhere to turn
When the sky is getting darker all around you
When the clouds above begin to churn

Don’t worry and don’t fret
The Lord is coming yet
He will turn the skies to bright sunshine
Just open up your ears
Soon you’ll begin to cheer
As you hear the Lord speak words of life

Here I am
Walk in my victory
Here I am
Walk in my strength
Here I am
I will never leave you
I will walk with you through every storm

Here I am
To comfort and to guide you
Here I am
To show you the way
Here I am
Trust in my mercy
I promise you will not be harmed

You never have to fear
For He is always near
The battle has been won
By Jesus Christ the Son
Just lift your hands in praise
Give Him glory all your days
Listen closely as He says Here I am

Here I am
Walk in my victory
Here I am
Walk in my strength
Here I am
I will never leave you
I will walk with you through every storm

Here I am
To comfort and to guide you
Here I am
To show you the way
Here I am
Trust in my mercy
I promise you will not be harmed

 

The Wonder of His Love

When I look back at my life before He saved me
And I see the path that I was trav’ling down
I cannot help but think
That I now would be extinct
My sin would have devoured all I owned

I look up to the heavens in amazement
That He would love me just the way I was
He washed my sin away
He made me whole that day
I realized the wonder of His love

His love is more amazing
His love is more divine
His love is made of miracles
His love has become mine
His love has taken over
My heart and soul and mind
Forever I will love Him
And lift His name on high

Now everything within me sings His praises
For the wonder of His precious love
I lift my arms in praise
At the mention of His name
Forever his sweet praise will fill my mouth

His love is more amazing
His love is more divine
His love is made of miracles
His love has become mine
His love has taken over
My heart and soul and mind
Forever I will love Him
And lift His name on high

Hallelujah Hallelujah
Hallelujah to the precious Lamb of God
Hallelujah Hallelujah
Hallelujah He has given us His love

His love is more amazing
His love is more divine
His love is made of miracles
His love has become mine
His love has taken over
My heart and soul and mind
Forever I will love Him
And lift His name on high

Just a Prayer Away

I’m often overwhelmed by what Jesus did for me
When He came to earth from heaven to die upon that tree
I did not deserve it yet He came here anyway
To show His love was just a prayer away

He took away my sins and he set my spirit free
No longer does the devil hold my final destiny
He rose up from the grave to give me eternal life
And all I had to do was make Him mine

He filled me with His Spirit which teaches me His word
The truth has been revealed to me and has become my sword
To fight off all the darts that the enemy does throw
I’m blessed because His promises I know

He brought me to deliverance from all my guilt and shame
I stand now with a peace of mind and feel no sense of blame
He taught me how to rise above offenses that do come
Now over my emotions I have won

He walks with me each day as I travel through this life
He loves me as a friend and He never leaves my side
I know that He is with me through every trial and test
And I know He always brings to me His best

What a mighty Savior
What a King of Kings
I have made Him Lord of Lords
I give Him everything
There is no place for my will
But His will I obey
And I will keep on trusting Him
Every single day

Even though I cannot figure out
Why He did this for me
I still will serve Him always
Throughout eternity
And I will lift my praises
To the one who died for me
Jesus Christ my Lord of Lords
And my King of Kings
