Enduring Love

Nothing I have done. No riches I have gained
Nothing I have written. No fame that I’ve attained
Nothing in this life can ever take the place
Of your enduring love and your amazing grace

I look up at the heavens and see the stars so bright
The dawn will soon awaken and birds will sing delight
All nature points to you and sings their songs of praise
For your enduring love and your amazing grace

CHORUS
All that I am I owe to you
All that I’ll be. All that I’ll do
I will forever sing your praise
Enduring love. Amazing grace

I look back at my past and see all you have done
My sins you bore alone. My victory you’ve won
And now I can not help but sing my song of praise
For your enduring love and your amazing grace

BRIDGE
I look ahead to what the future holds
I know there’s much that you would have me know
I yield myself to run this lifelong race
Enduring love. Amazing grace

I am always amazed when I hear people say they don’t believe in God. All of nature shows Him to us. He gave us this creation so we could see how much He loves us. Do you really think this just happened by chance? That humming birds somehow gained the ability to fly in place, their wings beating at 10 to 15 times a second? Or that the stars just happened to align themselves to form a big and a small dipper? Or that one star could be at the center of all stars and show us true north, becoming a means of navigation? How could that happen if things just scattered at a big bang? How could one planet be exactly far enough away from a sun to form plant life? How could animals even start to exist without a divine creator to begin the process? How could DNA become so complex without a designer? These questions, and so many more, need to be answered if one does not believe in a God who gives us all things.

As for me, I know He is real. I know he loves me. I know He has had grace upon me. I know He is with me every day. I know He carries me when I am down, heals me when I am sick, delivers me when I am in bondage and encourages me when I am discouraged. He calms my storms and gives me peace. He bore my sorrows and replaces them with joy. I am so thankful for His amazing grace and His enduring love. I don’t want to live without Him

John 15:5 King James Version (KJV)
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

I Will Lift My Praise In Song

God you are holy
God you are righteous
God you are worthy of my praise

God you are mercy
God you are gracious
I will lift up your holy name

So I will lift my hands and lift my voice
To worship you and rejoice
You are my rock and fortress strong
I lift my praise in song

When we look into the heavens we see His glory. When a thunderstorm comes through and the rainbow appears in the sky we see His glory. When the sun starts to set and He paints the sky, we see His glory. From the morning dew to the cool night air, His presence is all around us. Minute by minute, day after day, He never ceases to provide everything we need for life. The air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink all come from Him. The sun that heats, the snow that cools and the wind that dries are all His handiwork. There is nowhere on earth that escapes His presence. There is nowhere His glory is absent. In the deepest depths of the ocean there is beauty man has hardly seen. From the loftiest of mountains spectacular views greet all of mankind. His glory is all around us, His presence surrounds us and His unfailing love will never leave us. We should never cease:6 to praise Him and give Him the glory He deserves. It doesn’t matter what others may say, think, or do. I will praise the Lord!

Psalm 150:6
Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord

Praise and Worship

I Sing My Love to Thee

Wonderful Creator
Mighty God is He
He put the stars all up in place
Displays His majesty

Glorious Creator
Nature bows to thee
The trees all wave and birds sing praise
They testify to me

CHORUS
I lift my hands and give my words
To songs of praise for He is worthy
Every day from dawn to dusk
I sing my love to thee
I sing my love to thee

Merciful redeemer
Lord of Lords to me
He came to earth to give His life
So I could be set free

CHORUS

BRIDGE
All of heaven all of earth
All of nature sings your worthy
From highest height to oceans deep
Creation shows your majesty
Witnessing your love for me

CHORUS

I love to walk early in the morning. The air is so crisp and clean. Even on a cloudy morning it smells like a new earth. But on a clear night, when the humidity is low and not a wisp of cloud is anywhere to be seen, my eyes light up. If there is a moon shining that night I wonder at it’s glorious shape. Be it half or crescent, like the Cheshire Cat smiling down at me, it is a glorious sight, riding across the sky like it does. When it is full, it lights my path almost like a dim sun. And when the new moon rises, those clear skies display majesty beyond belief. I walk out to the northern part of our bike trail, where the city lights go dim, to see the wonder of the heavens gloriously displayed. Every star placed there by your loving hand to guide us on our way. It is the most evident display of your great love for us.

Psalm 19:1-2 King James Version
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

 

I Can Trust In Your Love

In the Still of the Night
You are there by my side
And I know I can trust in your love

At the dawn of the day
You provide me a way
Then I know I can trust in your love

As the Sun rises high
You will strengthen my life
So I know I can trust in your love

When the sun paints the sky
And the day has gone by
I have known I can trust in your love

There’s never am hour
When I don’t need your power
For I know who I can trust in your love

Keep me close by your side
For in you I’ll abide
There I know I can trust your love

I know there are times that I don’t love Him like I should. After all, He gave up a throne in heaven to come to earth as a babe because He loved me. He walked all over the nation of Israel, healing and preaching about the ways of our Father in heaven because He loved me. He took the ridicule and harassment of the religious leaders because He loved me. He was beaten and laughed at, mocked and ridiculed. He carried His own cross on which He was crucified because He loved me. He took the nails in His hands and feet and He cried out Father forgive them because He loved me. He rose again and sent the Holy Spirit Comforter to help me because He loved me?

And what do I do? How much time do I spend with Him each day. Every day he reminds me of His love for me by appearing in the little things, in nature all around me, in the people I meet and talk to. Every moment He is giving me breath and sight, hearing and taste and so many other things I do not deserve. And he will always do that because He loves me.

Romans 8:32-39 King James Version (KJV)
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Your Love For Me

No mountain too high. No valley too low
No ocean to wide or depth below
Can ever compare to your majesty
So I stand in awe of your love for me

No thunder too loud or lightning so bright
No sunset to bold or star in the night
Can ever compare to your glory Lord
So I stand in awe of your love for me

I stand in awe that you would come down
From heaven above from your lofty throne
To die in my place on a cross of shame
Be buried alone and then rise again

Oh what a wonderful love that you gave
To a sinner like me when you poured out your grace
Now I will worship and give you my praise
Because I stand in awe of your love for me

No matter how hard I try, I can’t understand why He loved me. He was seated on the throne in heaven. All the earth was His footstool because He created all things. He made the seas and the mountains, the stars and the birds. He made the lightning roar and the thunder clap. He put order to the universe and an atmosphere in this planet. He was above all. Then the Father said “It’s time,” and He left His throne and all of heaven behind and came as a baby in a manger. He grew up, taught us the love of the Father, healed all manner of illness, and yet was crucified. He was wounded for me, scourged for me, beaten for me. I was a wretched sinner, cursing God with every breath, yet He loved me. He made me new just as He made all of creation new. I am no longer the same but I have been bought with a price – the price of His blood. What a great love He has for me.

Romans 8:38-39 King James Version (KJV)
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
