Our Emmanuel 

I cannot tell thee whence it came
This peace within my soul
When cancer reared it’s ugly head
He’s all I chose to know
When days were tough and weakness reigned
And I was feeling low
His calm assurance rescued me
From satan’s vengeful blow

I stand in His unfailing love
I look to see His face
For He has been so good to me
He showered me with grace
In all the days since illness struck
His merciful embrace
Has held me closely to His side
He’s worthy of my praise

Lift His name
His matchless name
Jesus Lamb of God
King of Kings, Lord of Lords
Our Emmanuel

When I have gained the victory
And stand whole once again
I know I’ll owe it all to Him
My Savior and my friend
I’ll lift my voice up louder still
To reace the God of heav’n
Hosanna, praise His mighty name
Jesus Christ the Lamb

Lift His name
His matchless name
Jesus Lamb of God
King of Kings, Lord of Lords
Our Emmanuel

In The Midst

I’m tired of being tired
I’m sick of being sick
I’ll lift the name of Jesus in a song
But while I sit here waiting
For good health to return
I’ll lift the name of Jesus in a song

You wonder why I praise Him
When things are not so right
When He allowed this sickness in my life
The answer is so simple
It’s not hard to understand
When you think of all He’s done for me through time

He has loved me
He has saved me
He has healed me
He will raise me
He removed my sin and promised me new life
He delivered me
He’s been merciful to me
I will praise Him every day of my life

Now even when I suffer
When my life seems out of place
I do not forget what he has done for me
In the midst of any trial
I can raise my voice and sing
Hallelujah to my soon and coming King

His promises are true
His love is everlasting
His grace will cover all my foolishness
His mercy never fails me
His peace is inn my heart
His joy unspeakable flows endlessly

He has loved me
He has saved me
He has healed me
He will raise me
He removed my sin and promised me new life
He delivered me
He’s been merciful to me
I will praise Him every day of my life

He Will Handle It

People ask me why
There’s cancer in my life
When I have done my best to serve the Lord
Others ask me how
A loving God allows
The suffering of a baby with disease

Some will ask me when
The prejudice will end
So people of this world can live in peace
Others ask me what
Will stop those who corrupt
The morals keep on going down it seems

I answer them with patience
For my faith is in the Lord
I know that He works all things for our good
It matters not to me
The answers that you seek
Because I know that God is in control

He will handle it
All the heartache that you feel
He will handle it
When your life seems so unreal
When all reason has escaped you
And it seems there’s no way out
Just trust your loving God
He will handle it

The word says that His ways
Are much higher than mine
His thoughts are too magnificent to know
If I would just give in
And trust His loving hand
All worry in my life would have to go

We live this life by faith
Where we place it is the key
To how each day will bring us peace or fear
I’m trusting in the Lord
Through every coming storm
My confidence in Him will long endure

And when I face a test
I can calmly sit and rest
For it matters not what storm will come my way
I’m trusting in His word
I know He’s in control
He’ll bring good out of every single day

He will handle it
All the heartache that you feel
He will handle it
When your life seems so unreal
When all reason has escaped you
And it seems there’s no way out
Just trust your loving God
He will handle it

Keeping Him Around

The last 10 months has been quite a journey
Through the battle we face with cancer
Two stem cell transplants on top of chemo
Has helped to give us some answers

I have to admit that my body is saying
That this has been quite overwhelming
I have also been blessed by a wife at my side
Who has truly been quite amazing

But the biggest thing I have going for me
Is my faith in an Almighty God
Who comforts me day after day with His love
I just know He will not let me down

I have been overwhelmed by the strength He has given
When my strength has hit the ground
I know that my health will one day be whole
As long as I keep Him around

 

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Overwhelming

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
