I Need Help

This is going to be a difficult post to write. I have always tried to encourage and uplift the body of Christ through my poetry and words, but tonight I come to you with a different purpose. I hope you will understand.
I have been scammed big time. I have not used Godly wisdom and been taken for several thousand dollars. It humbles me to admit this, bit it is true. I need help. My marriage, my home and my lifestyle are at stake tonight and I don’t have anywhere else to turn at the moment, so I am turning to God, and turning to you, my faithful followers.
I am not going to get into details with you, I am only going to ask once. If you can help me out, I know God would be pleased and I would be richly blessed. Any amount will help, but I do need thousands. I pray you will ask God what you might be able to do. And please share this message with anyone and everyone who you think might be able to help me out,.
You can make checks out to Pete Gardner and mail to 707 3rd Ave NEBelmond, Iowa 50421
If you would like, I would send you a copy of my book “The ASK Principle”, which is all about prayer, for your donation. Just include your return address.
I can also receive cash through CashApp at $pgandj7
Thank you for bearing with me and for your faithfulness in following my page. I know I have not been here much lately, but this financial burden has me reeling, and I have not been listening close enough to my Savior’s voice.,
May the blessing of God be on you and your house.
In Christ

Jesus Life

Happily Ever After

Once upon a time there was a Savior
Who came down from the heavens high above
He came a humble babe
And in a manger lay
He came to teach us of His Father’s love 

He walked upon the earth and brought deliverance
The common people flocked to hear him speak
But man of high estate
Thought death would be His fate
They convinced the people that His life was fake

This Savior was condemned to cruel death
They whipped Him so His blood ran crimson red
Then they nailed Him to a tree
Thinking they had victory
They’d be rid of Him once His flesh was dead

Then on that cross He spoke some words that traveled
Down through the course of man for all of time
He said father forgive them
For they know not what they do
Then he bowed His head and silently He died

The men of high estate were quite elated
The man they couldn’t stand was finally gone
But three days after death
He rose again to life
Bringing happily ever after to us all

This little verse may seem a fairy tale
But it is true and Jesus lives today
Just give your life to Him
And He’ll forgive your sin
Then for all time you will reign and live with Him

My Child

When I woke up this morning, I heard Jesus
He was calling out my name loud and clear
I rose up from my bed and said I’m here Lord
Please speak your words of comfort in my ear

He said I love you son
I said I love you Lord
He said I’m with you everywhere you go
He said I’ll lead you, Son
I said I’ll follow, Lord
He said You’re my child forevermore

As I go about my daily preparation
I keep listening to hear the words He says
If we block out all the noise that this world offers
We can know His voice is there throughout the day

He says I’ll heal you son
I say forgive me Lord
He says I forgave all your sins upon the cross
He says I’ll give you peace
I say my words of praise
He says you’re my child forevermore

My child I’m with you in the darkest moments
My child I’m with you in the raging storm
My child I’ll lift you up out of the valley
And set your feet on the solid ground

He said I love you son
I said I love you Lord
He said I’m with you everywhere you go
He said I’ll lead you, Son
I said I’ll follow, Lord
He said You’re my child forevermore

Your Glory

 What makes us different than all the other beasts
 The bear and the squirrel, the otter and geese?
 What is it that makes us humans unique?
 It’s the glory.  The glory of the Lord.
 What gives us the right to call on the Lord?
 What helps us to follow His life-giving word?
 What is it that leads us to eternal rewards?
 It’s the glory.  The glory of the Lord
 His glory is life giving, shining so bright.
 His glory is healing. His glory gives light.
 His glory shines through every darkness of night.
 His glory extends to the highest height
 What is it that draws us so close to Him?
 What is it that settles His love deep within?
 What is it that will bring our Lord back again?
 It’s the glory.  The glory of the Lord
 His glory brings peace in the midst of the storm.
 His glory brings shelter and keeps our hearts warm
 His glory will keep our soul joyful and calm
 His glory will hold me safe in His arms
 Thank you, Lord, for your glory today
 ‘It guides us and leads us and shows us the way
 Your glory is what provides mercy and grace
 Your glory is all that I need 

The Door

 I’m waiting for Jesus to walk through the door
 I need Him today more than ever before
 He has the answer for all of my needs
 So I will wait here, down on my knees
 My petitions are simple and He hears them all
 I just have to listen so I’ll know when He calls
 I know that real soon His knock will announce
 That He has a word that He’ll soon pronounce
 I bring you healing, He says loud and clear
 I bring you wisdom to soothe all your tears
 I bring you peace that will calm every storm
 I bring you hope that will keep your soul calm
 I bring deliverance from Satan’s strong grip
 I bring my armor so you’ll be equipped
 I bring redemption from all of your sins
 I bring salvation to clean you within
 I’ll only come in if you answer my call
 I’ll knock on your door and wait in the hall
 Please come and open the door of your heart
 Then I will be with you and never depart 

I Will Wait On You

 I wait on you Lord
 For you give me strength
 You lift me up above the tempest
 You set my feet on higher ground
 You instill peace down in my soul
 I wait on you Lord
 For you give me health
 You favor me with your loving breath
 You smile on me as I recover
 You breath life into my soul
 I wait on you Lord
 For you give me purpose
 You guide me through hard places
 You show me the path to take
 You whisper to my soul
 I wait on you Lord
 You are my all in all
 You are my heart's desire
 You are my everything
 So I wait.

His Benefits

 I will bless the Lord with all my soul for all He’s done for me
 When He gave His life so long ago on a hill called Calvary
 The stripes He took and the pain He bore He suffered all for me
 Now I’ll lift my voice and raise my hands to the one who set me free
 Through His death that day upon the cross I am blessed in many ways
 His benefits will follow me through each and every day
 The sins I have committed against Him were washed away
 I now stand before my Savior for my debt has been repaid
 What a host of benefits He has for me
 Forgiveness off my sins and healing for my pain
 Redemption from destruction a crown of mercy there for me
 He fills me with good things so my youth is back again
 He is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and so kind
 He has taken all my sins; they have all been left behind 
 He has separated them as far as east is from west
 Now every day He gives to me only what He knows is best
 I will bow down at His throne and lift my voice in praise
 For the wonder of His mercy and His amazing grace
 He deserves to be the center of my world all of my days
 Jesus is the only one who is worthy of my praise

In Your Arms

 I have travelled here and there
 But I can’t find anywhere
 That is more reassuring than your arms
 I have seen some gorgeous sights
 But you are my guiding light
 I can’t find a better place than in your arms
 In your arms I’m safe from danger
 In your arms I find my peace
 In your arms no enemy can bring me harm
 In your arms I am no stranger
 In your arms I know your grace
 I can’t find a better place than in your arms
 Now each day I look to you
 For you show me what to do
 As I walk the path you planned for me
 I can know all things are good
 I have finally understood
 That your arms are where I truly need to be
 In your arms your mercy rests
 In your arms my healing lies
 In your arms there is no reason for alarm
 In your arms I’m always blessed
 In your arms I’ll never die
 I can’t find a better place than in your arms
The Believers Life

You Are Enough For Me

 When I am down, you pick me up
 When I am dry, you fill my cup
 When I am lost, you give me hope
 You are enough for me
 When I have sorrow, you give me joy
 When I’m in doubt, your faith I employ
 When there are storms, you fill me with peace
 You are enough for me
 When I had nothing, you came along
 When I was sad, you gave me a song
 When I get lonely you whisper to me
 You are enough for me
 You are enough, more than enough
 You are enough for me
 All this world offers will never fulfill
 The needs that well up in me
 When I turn to you, I find I am full
 Because you are enough for me
 Through terror and fear
 Through troubles and tears
 You always come through for me
 Through trials and tests
 You know what is best
 Because you are enough for me
 Stay close to me, Jesus
 Stay right by my side
 I’ll try my hardest to always abide
 And when I should wander
 To left or to right
 You’ll guide me back on the path
 Because you are enough for me’
 Your grace is enough
 Your mercy enough
 Your peace is enough
 Your joy is enough
 Your hope is enough
 Your strength is enough
 Your healing enough
 Your love is enough
 Yes, you are enough for me 

Every Moment

 Making time
 Losing time
 Forgetting the time
 We all have the same amount
 Ever minute, every day, every year
 It's not a matter of how much time
 But how we use the time
 It is a gift to us
 A precious gift
 From God
 Do I squander it?
 Do I plan it?
 Do I ignore it?
 Do I watch it?
 Do I use it to the fullest,
 Or squander it away?
 God's gifts are meant to be cherished
 Every moment should be cherished
 Every moment accounted for
 Every moment be made special
 Every moment given back to Him.
 I will lift my praise every moment
 I will lift my prayers every moment
 I will lift His name every moment
 I will honor Him every moment
 How will you use your time today?
