Myself

I wandered in darkness for so many years
Full of myself yet empty with fear
My life was a mess my eyes filled with tears
What did I do to myself

Every pleasure my heart would desire
So many riches my flesh would require
Whatever my soul longed for transpired
What have I done to myself

I looked for an answer in so many places
Tried to find love with so many faces
But never did I find a thing that replaces
What I have done to myself

I heard of a love that never would die
A love that would save one such as I
A love that would take away all the lies
That I always told myself

I turned to this man who came from above
I came to this man who had all this love
When I cam to Him He was enough
For me to turn from myself

He brought me into His wonderful Light
My life turned to day from the dark of the night
I knew He had come to transform my life
Because I couldn’t do it myself

Oh what a wonderful Savior is He
Oh what a miracle He did for me
Jesus my Lord brought me to my knees
He took me out of myself

I am no longer bound to my sin
I now have joy and peace within
With Him I know I always will win
Because I’ve given Him my self

 

Effective Prayer

Jesus I Trust You

There are days that I don’t know
Just what God will do
It seems that it find trouble
In everything I do

Then comes disappointment
As I try to work it out
Soon I get discouraged
When things don’t turn about

Its then I hear His still small voice
Calling out my name
I try to listen closely
I’m sure this is what He said

Trust me
Trust my child
Everything is under my control
I always have a plan
And it’s always for your good
Just trust me my child
Just trust me

Once I heard those words
My spirit came alive
Despite my circumstances
I knew I was alright

I lifted up my hands
While a lifted up my voice
Knowing He was with me
Caused me to rejoice

Then with my loudest voice
I worshiped His dear name
I spoke with affirmative
These words I did proclaim

I trust you
Jesus I trust you
You have not ever failed me
You won’t leave now
From now on when the trials come
When storm clouds loom ahead
I’ll trust you
Jesus I’ll trust you

Jesus Touched Me

I was lost and all alone
Having no place to call home
Then the light of heaven shone
Jesus touched me

I could not find my way
Traveled aimlessly each day
Then I raised my voice to pray
Jesus touched me

Jesus touched me
Jesus touched me
Jesus gave His life for me
When He died at Calvary
Jesus touched me
Jesus touched me
I’m so glad that He has set me free

Now I can call heaven home
I’m no longer here alone
I will worship at His throne
Jesus touched me

In a moment He saved me
In a moment I was free
In a moment sin was washed away from me
When Jesus came to me
I could feel His love and peace
Now forever more I will be with Him

Jesus touched me
Jesus touched me
Jesus gave His life for me
When He died at Calvary
Jesus touched me
Jesus touched me
I’m so glad that He has set me free

 

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

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

I promise you will not be harmed

 

You Are My Truth

You are my truth
I can depend on you
When all the world does not know truth
I can point to you
I can trust in you
You will never fail me
Or forsake me
Your truth is a testament I can rely on
Your promises are true
Your warnings are true
Your judgments are true
Your prophecies are true
I never have to wonder
Or doubt
Or question
Because they were true
They are true
And they always will be true
When I struggle
When I have trials
When I have worries
Or sorrows
Your truth will revive me
Your truth will pull me out
When I question my way
Your truth will show me the way
When I am without good health
Your truth says You are my healer
When I fall into a dark place
Your truth says you are my deliverer
When the enemy comes in like a flood
You will raise up a standard against him
That standard is your truth
I never have to live in fear
Or wonder if I will make it through
For you are my truth
