What A Savior

It’s hard to explain

This joy I have inside

It makes my disappointments

Run away and hide

When sorrow tries to come

I tell it to subside

Because the joy I have from Jesus

Will constantly abide

 

It’s hard to comprehend

This peace I have attained

When trouble comes my way

It never causes pain

When fear tries to surround me

I tell it to refrain

Because the peace I have from Jesus

Will constantly remain

 

What a Savior

What a friend

Jesus is to me

Giving Hope

Giving mercy

He is all I need

Answering my prayers

Always guiding me

Wonderful Messiah

Jesus is to me

 

Impossible to know

The depth of His great love

He showers it upon me

From heaven up above

It overflows my spirit

There is more than enough

I’m so glad He gives me

His unfailing love

 

And then there is His greatest gift

His Amazing grace

It forgives me when I falter

And lifts me when I praise

I’ll look to Him each morning

In hopes too see His face

I’ll never turn away from

His amazing grace

 

What a Savior

What a friend

Jesus is to me

Giving Hope

Giving mercy

He is all I need

Answering my prayers

Always guiding me

Wonderful Messiah

Jesus is to me

No Contest

I sit and wonder why, Lord
Do people not choose thee
When they hear you’ve paid the price
From sin to set them free

Down here they feel so happy
And they think it’s the best
But if they just choose you today.
They would be richly blessed

In this life they party
Thinking all of life’s a game
If you would fill them with your joy
They’d never be the same

And when the party’s over
And the happiness is gone
They sit their all alone and wonder
When some peace will come

But I can tell them truly
That the peace that Jesus gives
Will permeate  their soul each day
As long as they shall live

You ask me how I know these things
So I’ll tell you here and now
‘Twas not that long ago my friend
That I refused to bow

I loved the party life at night
But hated waking up
My mind was filled with torment
My thoughts were so corrupt

It took at least 10 times
For me to head His call
But when I did, He kept His word
And gave to me His all

He blesses me each day
With His presence,  oh so sweet
He fills my heart with joy
Happiness just can’t compete

His peace is so remarkable
It soothes me every day
And His love is unforgettable
He walks along my way

But most of all His mercy
Is always reaching me
And His grace is so amazing
As it works to keep me free

You see it really is no contest
What the best life is
So why not turn your life around
And make your heart be His.

The Resting Place

I need to find a resting place

Where troubles will all cease

It seems the daily battles rage

And I can’t find His peace

 

I long to find a resting place

Where healing will be mine

It seems this worn out body

Gets sorer all the time

 

I hope to find a resting place

Where doubt is cast aside

Where faith is all that rules

My heart and soul and mind

 

I’m searching for a resting place

Where I can dwell in peace

I need a calm, assuring voice

To end my worried speech

 

And when the day is over

And my rhyme is almost done

A small voice whispers in my ear

And now I can rejoice

 

Jesus is the resting place

That I am longing for

In His arms your comfort waits

Come and make Him yours

He’ll heal you and deliver you

And peace will flood your soul

And soon you’ll find a quiet rest

That soothes and makes you whole

 

Come into the resting place

Where peace is alt for you

Jesus is the resting place

He’s there awaiting you.

There Are Times

There are times when I can hear Him
Whisper softly in my ear
And I listen so intently 
Yes, my Lord, I am here

 

There are times when I can feel Him
Reaching out to touch my pain
Warmth flows through His hand of mercy
And my hurt will not remain

 

There are times when I can sense His 
Holy Spirit by my side
He’s protecting me from danger
As His presence there abides

 

There are times I see His power
Working miracles for me
With amazing grace providing 
All that I will ever need

 

There are times His peace comes flowing 
Like a river over me
It is always overwhelming 
To be covered by His peace

 

There are times joy comes in bubbling 
Like a fountain in my soul
Even when my heart grows weary 
In His joy I can be whole

 

There are times His love surrounds me
With a presence oh so sweet
And I know that I must share it
With each person that I meet 

More Than Enough

My God is mercy
More than enough
To wipe away all of my sin
He gave His own Son
To die in my place
So I could have peace deep within

My God is grace
Amazing and True
He places His Spirit in me
Each day He guides me
Into His truth
As I grow to what I’m made to be

He’s more than enough

More than enough

More than enough for me

And when I lay down

To sleep, I have found

His peace washes over me

 

My God is love

Compassion abounds

He loved me before I knew Him

And each day he sends

This wonderful love

Into my heart once again

 

My God is holy

Purer than gold

His holiness Is what I yearn

He calls me to be

As holy as He

He is patient and kind as I learn

 

He’s more than enough

More than enough

More than enough for me

And when I lay down

To sleep, I have found

His peace washes over me

 

My God is faithful

Day after day

He’s always right there by my side

When I call on Him

He hears every word

And answers when it’s His time

 

All of these things

My God is to me

He says that’s how I ought to be

I must spread the word

Of my wonderful God

To all that He brings close to me

Stay Calm

Image result for calm

I see a lot of people

Who panic at the news

That fills our ears and eyes most every day

It seems the world’s in chaos

And nothing  comes out right

Killings, bombings, protests are the way

 

But I know a secret

To rid myself of fear

And every time it works just like a charm

I simply trust in Jesus

And He fills me with peace

He says He’ll always hold me inHis arms

 

So when you’re feeling panicked

And your trouble way to much

Why not turn to Jesus Christ for peace

He always is the answer

And He will never fail

To calm your soul and fear will be released

 

In response to trhe daily prompt Panic

Go To Jesus

If you’re looking for peace in your turmoil

And you can’t find the solace you need

There’s one place to go

Where peace always Flows

Go to Jesus

 

If the joy in your life is depleted

And sadness is claiming your day

You’ll find what you need

If you sit at His feet

Go to Jesus

 

Jesus has all that I need

And all I could ever desire

He’s always right there

To hear every prayer

I will never go wrong with Him

 

If you think you’re unloved by the world

And you feel like you’re always alone

I know that you’ll find

A real love divine

Go to Jesus

His grace flows freely from His throne

When you ask Him in

He will be your friend

And you will be loved evermore
