Forever Free

I was lost but now I’m found
I was blind but now I see
I was dead but now I live
I was bound but now I’m free

Free from worry, free from fear
Free from satan’s grip on me
Free from sadness, free from shame
Now I’m free. Now I am free

CHORUS
Forever free, forever free
Because you died upon that tree
Rose again new life to bring
I am now forever free

Jesus ransomed my lost soul
Came and made me fully whole
I will magnify His name
Because I’m now forever free

BRIDGE
Praise the Lord, praise His wonderful name
The name of Jesus.  The Lamb of God
Praise His name.  Praise His name
The name of Jesus Christ our Lord
 
CHORUS (2 times)

Grant Me Wisdom

Grant me wisdom so that I can know your ways. 
Grant me courage to walk beside you all the way
Help me listen so that I can know your plan. 
For I know that everything you have for me Is only good

You have given me life and breath 
so that I can follow you. 
You have given me eyes and ears 
to behold your glory
You have given me hands and feet 
that I might be about your work 
Now I pray that all these gifts you give 
will help me in the way I live
To bring the lost into a life with you

Grant me wisdom so that I can know your ways. 
Grant me courage to walk beside you all the way
Help me listen so that I can know your plan. 
For I know that everything you have for me Is only good

You have given me trials and tests 
so I can learn to trust in you. 
You have given me times of silence 
to teach me patience
You have given me friends who bring to me 
heartache and despair
All to drive me to my knees in prayer 
so that I might seek your answers there
And can bring the lost into a life with you.

All of my life is designed for one purpose. 
All of my days are ordered for one goal
To show others through my situations 
That the love of God is real

Grant me wisdom so that I can know your ways. 
Grant me courage to walk beside you all the way
Help me listen so that I can know your plan. 
For I know that everything you have for me Is only good
Now I pray that all these gifts you give
Will help me in the way I live to bring the lost into a life with you

A Resting Place

I stand here thinking if my life 
And all the things I do
I realize that I'd be lost
If I did not have you

I was a soul just wandering 
Through darkness and disgrace 
Then one day I saw the light
When I came to know your grace

CHORUS
No more do I wander
No more do I roam
I have found a resting place
In you and you alone

What a blessed hope I have
What joy now fills my soul
A peace that calms down all my fears
Your love has made me whole

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Only in you, Lord, only in you
Can I find rest in this troubled world

CHORUS

None More Glorified

From the heavens above I can hear the sound
Holy is the Lord
From the earth below all creation groans
Holy is the Lord
The stars in the sky proclaim Hi name
Holy is the Lord
The beasts and birds sing His praise
Holy is the Lord

There is none more Holy
None more righteous
None more magnified
There is none more worthy
None more honored
None more glorified

So I sing holy, holy, holy is the Lord
I sing holy, holy, holy is the Lord

Greatness out of This Great Mess

This was written back in 2017 when I was still undergoing Chemo treatments. I never did get it posted on this site

Riddled with cancer
Shoulder just quits
Neuropathy covers my feet
Two stem cell transplants
Weakness ensues
God will make some greatness out of this great mess

Jesus the master healer 
He supplies all the strength that I need
I fill all my days
With words of His praise
As His healing starts working in me

First I walked with a walker
A cane followed closely behind
I walked just a block at a time
But my drive just kept up
With my faith in my Lord
Now a mile a day isn't long

My shoulder would not move at all
The doctors could not understand
They said maybe never would heal
Movement came in ten months 
Therapy started at once
Now full range of motion is here

Jesus the master healer 
He supplies all the strength that I need
I fill all my days
With words of His praise
As His healing starts working in me

God will make some greatness
Out of this great mess
Cancer is no longer found
I'm healed from above
With doctors involved
In the therapy of Jesus love 

Jesus the master healer 
He supplies all the strength that I need
I fill all my days
With words of His praise
As His healing starts working in me

You Are Always Near

I have wandered in the desert one too many times
I’ve been way down in the valley of despair
So many storms have raged inside my weary mind
Yet I always know that you are near

I know that you are near
Because you whisper in my ear
You tell me everything will be all right
And in the deepest darkness
You help me find my way
My path becomes much clearer by your light

I can trust you, Lord at all times
I can trust you will help me through
I can trust you will take me by the hand
I can trust I will never be without you

I will never be without your mercy
I will never be without your grace
I will never be without your endless love
I will never leave your tender embrace

So, when I wander in the desert, you will guide me
In the valley you’ll remove my fear
When the storms come you will bring me rainbows
And I’ll know that you are always near

Be Still

I’m not sure how much more trouble I can take
I feel that I’m alone about to break
My time is quite filled up
His life is not enough
My wandering mind keeps getting in my way

I cry out to God, “Oh, Lord what can I do?
It seems that I am floundering without you”
Then I hear your voice reply
“Child, look up to the sky.
I am always here and want to talk to you.

Be still and know my peace
Be still and know my joy
Be still and hear my voice
I will speak to you through the noise
Be still and find new hope
Be still and feel my love
Be still and I will guide you
Until you reach your home above

I hear His sweet words and myself
How can I find a place where I can be still
Then I start to realize
That such a place is disguised
Because anywhere He can meet with me

I sit down on the deck in silence
I do all I can be quiet
As the minutes pass by
My thoughts all but die
Until only His voice I hear

Be still and know my peace
Be still and know my joy
Be still and hear my voice
I will speak to you through the noise
Be still and find new hope
Be still and feel my love
Be still and I will guide you
Until you reach your home above

It’ Been A While

It’s been a while since I knelt bedside my bed and prayed
It’s been a while since I opened up the book and read
It’s been a while since I lifted up my arms in praise
But you have been here all along with your amazing grace

It’s been a while since I listened for your words of love
It’s been a while since I thought about your throne above
It’s been a while since I realized you are enough
But you have been there all the time with your redeeming love

Oh God, I miss my talks with you
The fulness of my walks with you
Oh God, I’ve moved so far away from you
Please help me find a way back to your unfailing grace
Have mercy on me now, my Lord, I pray

It’s time to kneel down by my bed to pray
And read the words of your amazing grace
I need to lift my arms and give you praise
For you have been right by me all the way

I soon forget that you are near
And that my prayers you always hear
I must remember that you love me all the time
Help me to see you by my side
Help me to know that you abide
Speak to my heart and open up my simple mind

Oh God, I miss my talks with you
The fulness of my walks with you
Oh God, I’ve moved so far away from you
Please help me find a way back to your unfailing grace
Have mercy on me now, my Lord, I pray
Have mercy on me now, my Lord, I pray
