The Believers Life

The Lord is My Shepherd

The Lord is my shepherd in him I abide
He is my provider and He is my guide.
When trouble surrounds me in am I hide.
The Lord is my shepherd in him I abide

The Lord is my shepherd He fills every need
When I fully trust him I am blessed indeed.
My troubles will leave me if his word I heed
When He is my shepherd He fills every need

He leads me beside the Still Waters by day
In everything I am refreshed by the way
If I listen to him and his word I obey
He’ll lead me beside the Still Waters by day

He restores my soul when my strength gives out
I know that by his word there is never doubt
When he lifts me up my praise is a shout
He restores my soul when my strength gives out

He makes me to lie down in pastures of green
He keeps me hunger on His word I feed
I’ll never let anything come in between
He leads me to lie down in pastures of green

He leads me in paths of His righteousness
He showers me with His love and I’m blessed
I cannot imagine anything less
Than walking in paths of his righteousness

Yay though I walk through the valley of death
The Shadows around me will not cause distress
My fear will be gone and He’ll give me rest
Whenever I walk through the valley of death

I will fear no evil for He is with me
When I’m feeling danger His help I will see
I never will doubt that He’ll fill all my needs
I will fear no evil for He is with me

His rod and His staff are comforts indeed
They help guide my path when I cannot see
His peace I will know as I sit at His feet
His rod and His staff are comforts indeed

He prepares a table before my enemies
They can see all the help that my Shepherd gives me
They run off with fear because He protects me
I feast at the table by my enemies

He anoints my head with heavenly oil
His Spirit is with me amidst all my toil
The enemy’s darts He will constantly foil
He anoints me head with heavenly oil

My cup runneth over with goodness from Him
Again and again I can feel Him within
Every day with Him I will win
My cup runneth over with goodness from Him

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life As I bow on my knees
In His house I’ll dwell for eternity
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me

The Believers Life

He is a Friend to Me

I can’t begin to tell you
What Jesus means to me
My Lord and my Savior
A friend when I’m in need

My head leans on His shoulder
His arms encircle me
His voice speaks in my ear
He watches over me

Everything I long for
Everything I need
Everything my heart desires
He has given me

I will praise His holy name
Jesus King of Kings
Lord of Lords Messiah
He is a friend to me

Forever I’m Yours

Make me to shine over all the earth
So that others might see only you
Make me a vessel of your peace
In all that I say and do
Make me yours
Make me yours

Make me bring joy to the people I meet
So that they know your near
Make me show love to all those in need
Help me your voice to hear
Make me yours
Make me yours

CHORUS
I am not my own
I’ve been bought with a price
I am yours
I lay my life down
At the foot of your cross
I am yours
Forever I’m yours

Make me an instrument of your peace
Make me the one who brings hope to all men
Make me yours
Make me yours

CHORUS

BRIDGE
And I will lift my voice
I will each day rejoice
You have filled me with joy
You have made me yours (REPEAT)

CHORUS

Trust Him

Trust God!
What a concept we should follow.

Trust Him
in the midst of the battle,
in the height if the storm,
in the depths of the valley
and in my deepest sorrow.

Trust Him
when He does not answer,
when He seems far away,
when I don’t hear His voice
and when I feel lost and alone.

Trust Him
even if I am sick,
or poor,
or hungry
or thirsty,
even if my soul longs to be closer to Him
yet my flesh keeps me away.

Trust Him
when I can’t trust in myself,
my family,
my friends,
my neighbors,
my coworkers,
or even people in my church.

Trust Him.
Always trust Him!

Help Me To Know You More

As I woke from my sleep this morning
I lifted your name
Your wonderful name

My voice shouted hallelujah
Your worthy of praise
All of my days

Then I thought of your grace
Amazing grace
Wonderful grace to me

Mighty God
Why do you love me so
Watch me and help me grow
All of the grace you show
Mighty God
I am in awe of you
Help me to know you more
Help me to know you more

The Desk

I had a dream about a desk
No ordinary desk mind you
But a big desk
Curved and outstanding
This desk had a glass top
With a front panel that shone like silver
Big enough to fill a stage
A stage under multiple lights
They shone brightly
Almost an electric feeling
About the desk

Behind the desk sat a woman
Young and pretty
Blonde hair and blue eyes
Her face mostly neutral in feeling
Soft in compassion
Warm in engaging me
Wanting me to hear what she had to say
Her hair falling around her face
Short of her shoulders
She had on a light blue blouse
Or dress
One could not tell as she sat
Behind that desk

On the desk was a tablet
Which was glanced at by the woman
And she spoke into a microphone
Clipped to her blouse
She spoke of fires
And murders
And trials
And earthquakes
And trade negotiations
And other countries
Far away
Bringing news
News of trouble
News of tragedy
News of wonder
Things I could not imagine
Scrolled across her tablet
Upon that desk

Then one day
In my dream
She got up from the desk
And said she had had enough
Of bad news
And trouble
Enough of things that bring us down
And she was going to leave
But before she did
She sat back down at the desk
Put her tablet aside
And pulled out a big book
The big book was opened
And laid out in front of her
Behind that desk

Then she said
I want to say something good
Good news for all to hear
Good news that crosses the barriers of time
Good news for you
Good news for me
Jesus is alive
H rose from the dead to give you eternal life
He died to set you free from sin
Because He loved you
Romans road tells us so
Verse 3:23
Verse 5:8
Verse 6:23
Verses 10:9-10
Verse 10:13
1 John 1:9
She read with conviction
With passion
Like a fire was within her
Then she looked
Directly into the camera
And quietly said
Have you been born again

Then she got up
And walked away
From the desk
