The Vine

Lord feed me wisdom
That I might see
All the injustice
That’s all around me
All of the heartache
All of the pain
All of the suffering
All the disdain
Feed me a heart
That will reach out in love
And touch all the broken
So they’ll know your love

Lord feed me courage
That I might know
How to change doubt
Into faith that shows
All of the fear
All of the worry
All of the sorrow
All of the hurry
Feed me the strength
To open their eyes
And lead them to you, Lord
So faith will arise

You are the vine
I am the branch
Fill me with love
Give me a chance
To bear you much fruit
As I follow your plan
Tend to my life
With your loving hand

Feed me compassion
So others  may see
Your love for them, Lord
Through the life that I lead
All of the joy
All of the peace
All of the grace
All the mercy
Feed me with life
In all that I do
So I can successfully
Lead them to you

And all of the fruit I bear dear Lord

I owe it all to you

It is your loving hand that prunes the branch

To make it bear more fruit

So do with me what you will, dear Lord

To shape and mold this branch

No matter the trial or test that comes

My life it will enhance

You are the vine
I am the branch
Fill me with love
Give me a chance
To bear you much fruit
As I follow your plan
Tend to my life
With your loving hand

My Offering

I offer you my life, my heart, my soul

I offer you myself, dear Lord

I offer you my praise, my words, my mind

I give it all to you, my Lord

 

It’s my offering of praise

The worship of my heart

All I have I give to you

I lift up holy hands

I lift my voice in song

All I have I give to you

 

I offer you today, tomorrow and all time

To use me as your vessel, Lord

I offer you each hour, each minute of my day

Fill me with your love, oh Lord

 

Everything I have

Everything I am

All of it is yours

Lead me in your plan

All that I can do

All that I can say

I offer it to you

Use me, Lord, today

 

It’s my offering of praise

The worship of my heart

All I have I give to you

I lift up holy hands

I lift my voice in song

All I have I give to you

It’s Not Up To Me

It’s not up to me

To save a soul

To take their sins

And make them whole

But it is up to me

To tell them of Christ

So That they can accept Him

And change their lives

 

It’s not up to me

To heal the sick

To take their pain

And help them live

But it is up to me

To help them see

The one who heals

And dries their tears

 

My task is to tell them of Jesus

And the wonders He’s done for me

To open their eyes to the light of His love

So that they will truly believe

 

It’s not up to me

To convict of sin

To judge the lost

And purify them

But it is up to me

To witness each day

Of the love of Christ

And to pray and pray

 

It’s not up to me

To look down on them

Or to think I’m better

Because I have Him

But it is up to me

To love them with all

My heart must go out

To both big and small

 

My task is to tell them of Jesus

And the wonders He’s done for me

To open their eyes to the light of His love

So that they will truly believe

 

For I do not know what tomorrow brings

It just might be their last day

I need to tell them of Jesus

And pray, and pray, and pray

End the Chaos

When life gets chaotic

And you can’t find your way

I have a solution

To rearrange your day

 

Just start out with Jesus

Give His word some time

Sing praise to His name

It will trasnform your life

 

Because time spent with  Jesus

To start out the day

Will stiffle the chaos

Amd bring peace always.

 

 

 

In respone to the daily prompt Rearrange

Touch The Lord

I see the Lord

Most every day

He’s right beside me

As I pray

He walks with me

Along the way

He’s everywhere I go

 

When I see someone

Steeped in pain

I see the Lord

Inside of Him

I go and pray

That health would win

And I have touched my Lord

 

If someone’s feeble

In their home

And I go visit

When their alone

They brighten up

That someone comes

And I have touched my Lord

 

Jesus said that when we touch

One of His children, him we touch

He asks us to go out of our way

To make a difference in the world today

 

If one’s in prison

For their crime

And I go visit

And give my time

It cheers them up

They glad I came

And I have touched my Lord

 

Do you see Jesus

As you walk

In other people

In the park

He’s right there

Inside their heart

Waiting for a touch

 

Open your eyes

To others needs

And soon you’ll see

Their needs are real

It’s up to you

To help them heal

Your time to touch the Lord

Proceed With Caution

I  used to never be careful

About what I said or did

I just had fun and I partied

And most of my life was hid

 

But then I made Jesus my Savior

And He asked much more of me

He asked me to be His disciple

And live a life for His glory

 

So I put aside all of the parties

And I watched every word that I said

I wanted to glorify Jesus

And not bring reproach to His name

 

Now I know it’s hard to be perfect

In all that we say and do

So I will proceed with caution

As I witness to  all the world

 

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Careful

The Coming Storm

Winds are swirling

Seas are churning

Storm is drying near

Windows boarded

Food is hoarded

Forecast bringing fear

 

Time is wasting

Storm’s approaching

Skies are growing black

Rain starts falling

Wind is howling

No time to turn back

 

We see the forecast looming

And prepare for what’s to come

Anticipate the worst case

And hope for much more calm

 

And when the storm has passed

And the skies all start to clear

We start the lengthy clean-up

That will last throughout the year

 

But a different storm is coming

One that has no warning signs

It’s a promise in the Bible

And it’s getting close to time

 

Jesus will return soon

To take His children home

And once we all leave with Him

You won’t want to be alone

 

But today you can prepare

For this day that’s coming soon

If a storm you will prepare for

Why not the coming doom?

 

Just ask Jesus to be Lord

And repent of all your sin

He will come and save your soul

And come to live within
