In Your Place

Can you see Him
Bloodied
Beaten
Bruised
Nailed to a cross
In your place

Can you see Him
Suffering
Sacrificing
Solitary
Taking on sin
In your place

Can you hear Him
Thirsty
Forgiving
Compassion
Agony for hours
In your place

Can you hear Him
Cry out to God
Cry out to man
It is finished
Gave up His life
For you

Will you trust Him
Give Him your life
He gave His for you
When He died
In your place

Will you believe
Three days later
Rose from the grave
Our lives to save

Come to Him now
Give Him your life
Because He gave His
In your place

Every Single Time

When I am down and feeling blue
I lift my eyes and look to you
Because I know you’ll see me through
Every single time

When I am sick or feeling pain
I look to you, Lord, yet again
Because I know your healing came
Every single time

Your mercy is remarkable
Your grace is ever free
I never will quite understand
The love you have for me

When I’m alone and feeling down
I look to you before I drown
Then you bring me to higher ground
Every single time

No eye can see
No tongue can tell
The greatness of your love
No one can start
To count the times
You’ve touched them from above

Your mercy is remarkable
Your grace is ever free
I never will quite understand
The love you have for me

Running To You

I run into your arms Lord
Where I am always safe
You wrap your love around me
Your spirit builds my faith

I run to your great mercy
When I have lost my way
You help me in my trials
And lead me to escape

Running to you, Lord.  Running to you
My destination sure
Running to you with all my heart
Lord, I am running to you

I run to your sweet grace, Lord
Where blessings always flow
When I am discouraged
Your grace helps me to grow

I run to know the joy, Lord
You plant inside of me
It overwhelms my senses
And fills my heart with glee

Running to you, Lord.  Running to you
My destination sure
Running to you with all my heart
Lord, I am running to you

I run to feel your peace, Lord
That calms my weary soul
It flows so gently from you
Your peace fills me with hope

I run too you for faith Lord
That never dims or fades
It comes from knowing you, Lord
Your Word shows me the way

Running to you, Lord.  Running to you
My destination sure
Running to you with all my heart
Lord, I am running to you

A Blogging I Will Go

I got my letter the other day
Directly from the SSA
The wrote me to gladly say
Disability approved

Right now my job I cannot do
Cancer has my chemo due
I have to see the program through
To make my cancer cured

So writing blogs now fills my days
It seems more overworked always
But I have so much left to say
Enjoying this tiime off
