Fill Every Pore

God so loved the world
That He gave His only Son
That all who would believe would have new life
He called to me one day
That I would share His ways
And tell all men of His great sacrifice

Truly my desire
Is that I would be on fire
With a passion for the lost
Give my life at any cost
Just to see a soul get rescued
From their sin

Fill my mouth with truth, Lord
Fill my heart with love
May compassion for the lost fill every pore
Fill me with your Spirit
Guide me to the lost
That I might share your word with all my soul

All my heart cries out
That my words turn them about
So that they would see their sin
Then their spirit groan within
Causing them to cry to Jesus
Save me Lord

Fill my mouth with truth, Lord
Fill my heart with love
May compassion for the lost fill every pore
Fill me with your Spirit
Guide me to the lost
That I might share your word with all my soul

 

Take Control (Music Video)

This is a new chorus the Lord gave me yesterday.  Hope you enjoy it!

Here are the words.

What else can I do but to worship you
What else can I say but give you praise
What else can I offer you but this life you’ve given me
All I have is yours Oh Lord

All of my heart
All of my soul
All of my spirit take control
All of my heart
All of my soul
All of my spirit take control

Open Me

Open me up Lord so others may see
The love that you’ve placed inside of me
Open my heart and mind and soul
That I may show joy to young and old

Open my eyes to see the pain
That others are facing again and again
Open me up Lord to let you shine
The light of the world for all of time

Open me heart Lord to help the lost
To let them known that you paid the cost
Open my mind to understand
What words it will take to reveal your plan

I want to be open to follow your way
I need to be open to your will today
I vow to be open to others in need
I promised to love them in word and deed

Open me. Open me. Open me Lord
Open me up to witness for you
Open me up to touch those for you
Open me up as a light for you
Open me Lord. Open me for you

I Listen

Silently
I wait for thee
In the morning
Before dawning
Stars aglow
Snow below
Air is cold
Wind is bold
I listen

Heart for you
Thoughts anew
Your voice I hear
In my ear
Silently
Quietly
You speak to me
These words of life
And sacrifice
I listen

Thank you Lord
For your words
For these psalms
That bring calm
Silently
Gracefully
You speak to me
Words that seek
To set us free
That we might be
Found in thee
Help me Lord
To listen

 

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

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

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.
