You Will Send Your Grace

You’re my refuge and my fortress
In the raging storm you bring rest
You will send your grace to still the waves
In your loving arms I am blessed

Your my hope and my assurance
You give strength for my endurance
You will send your grace. I will run the race
While I’m holding on to your hand

No weapon formed against me
No fiery dart thrown at me
Can ever stop me for you are for me
The wind and waves may lash me
No way that they’ll outlast me
You will uphold me for you are with me

Your my everlasting Father
I will love you like no other
I will lift my praise for your wondrous grace
And your will I will discover

And when the storms of doubt when the waves of fear
Crash around me you will surround me
In your loving arms I am safe from harm
No matter what I face you will send your grace

No weapon formed against me
No fiery dart thrown at me
Can ever stop me for you are for me
The wind and waves may lash me
No way that they’ll outlast me
You will uphold me for you are with me

You don’t make us invincible, Lord. You don’t keep the trials and tests way from us. You don’t keep sickness at bay or injury away. Our lives continue on just like the unbeliever’s do. You say the rain falls on the just and the unjust. In the same way the trials of life fall on all of us. You allow them into our lives, you don’t cause them. I often wonder why this happened, or what did I do to deserve that? But I have learned that your plan is always good and right and just. I only need to trust you.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and he shall direct your path.

 

He Is With Me

He was with Abraham on his journey
He was with Jacob in the night
He was with Joseph in the prison
With Joshua in the fight

He was with Samuel when he whispered
He was with David against a giant
He was with Daniel giving visions
And in the den against the lion

He is with me. He is with me. Every hour of every day
He is with me. He is with me as my guide to show the way
He is with me giving strength. He is with me in His power
I know that I have Jesus. He is with me

He is with me showing mercy
He is with me showing grace
He is with me in my battles
He is with me when I pray

I can walk with great assurance
In the middle of the storm
Because I know the one who calms the sea
I can pray with expectation
That each prayer will be heard
His word says when I pray He’ll answer me

Don’t spend one more day without Him
Don’t spend one more hour without Him
Give it all. Give it all to Jesus

I can trust Him in every storm, in every test, in every trial and in every way. There is nothing that can separate me from His love. Not fire, not flood, not height or depth. No mountain or valley or strange event. When I come to Him, he will meet me where I am. If I am in sin, he will forgive me if I ask. If I am struggling he will pick me up and help me along. If I am crying he will dry my ears and comfort me. If I am troubled, he will say peace be still. There is nothing in life greater than knowing Jesus is right there loving me every minute of every day. What a joy it is to serve Him with all my heart and soul and mind and strength.

Psalm 16:8 King James Version (KJV)
8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

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

He Watches Over You

He knows my doubts, my fears and my sorrows
He knows the way I will go tomorrow
He’s always there
Showing me care
He watches over me

Even when my feet will stumble and fall
He is right there to hear my faint call
He’ll forgive me
Of all my misdeeds
He watches over me

CHORUS
There’s not a day that goes by
That He is not at my side
His love will always abide
I can trust in Him
I can trust in Him

He is so faithful and always true
He’ll never leave or abandon you
Trust in His love
He’s always enough
He watches over you

CHORUS

BRIDGE
In my struggles
In my weakness
In my sickness
He’s there for me
In my wand’ring
In my doubting
In my hurting
He’s there for me

CHORUS

You Found Me

I was wandering in the valley of despair
With no hope in sight
Could not see the light
I tried to look up but could not lift my head
I was down and out
Feeling all alone

Then you found me
You lifted me up
Set my feet on the solid rock
When you found me
You just smiled at me
And you said you loved me so
I’m glad you found me

When I wander off the path you have laid out
I can lose my way
Farther off each day
I try my best to turn around and come back to you
Then you take my hand
Lead me back again

I’m glad you found me
Set my pathways straight
Gave my heart more faith to trust
When you found me
My doubt vanished away
I drew closer each day
I’m so glad you found me

Like a lost sheep I had gone astray
Wandering farther from you every day
I could not find a way to return to you
Then you same running and found me
You came running and found me

I’m glad you found me
Now I lay in your arms
I am safe from all harm with you
You found me
When I could not find you
Did not know what to do
But you did
You knew where I was
And you found me
I’m glad you found me
So glad you found me

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

 

Safe

“For you alone, oh Lord, make me dwell in safety” Psalm 4:8:

Safety from the ravages of sin
Safety from the error of my ways,
Safety from the darkness within
Safety from the troubles of my days
Safety from the tempters luring voice
Safety from the storms in the night
Safety from the world and all it’s noise
Safety from the things that block the light

You, Lord make me dwell there.
Safe from all danger
Safe from all harm.
Safe from myself when I wander away.
Safe from the thief who would hinder my way.
Safe from the wiles that satan employs.
Safe from His trials that would steal my joy
Safe from confusion that takes away peace
Safe from the tempter who tries to appease
Safe from the things that would steal all my praise
Safe in the arms of the Lord of all grace
Safe in the mercy that He does bestow
Safe in the love that He brought here below

I am set apart by the Lord
And He hears my prayers
He has put gladness in my heart
He makes me lie down in peace
He sets me apart
And keeps me safe
