Trust in God

I Will Trust You

When times get hard
And I see no end
To the test I’m in
I will trust you

When joy is gone
And my sorrow grows
It is then I know
I will trust you

When my health is poor
And I feel so sick
My heart faints within
I will trust you

When my finances
Are so steeped with debt
I can’t seem to win
I will trust you

When I stand for you
And my friends are gone
When I’m all alone
I will trust you

You have always been there
Always cared
Always done what’s best for me
Even when I cannot see
Your grace always wins
Your love just begins
To ease my suffering
It is then I know
I can trust you

In Hard Times

Isolated

Sulking in a corner
Downstairs in my room
Thoughts of taking my life
All is doom and gloom
I can’t see a future
When I see my past
Why don’t I just end it
This misery will last

Isolated
All alone
The enemy attacks here
Going crazy
Hope is gone
Why am I in such fear

I search my inner being
I find a ray of hope
There’s something deep inside me
That rises like a smoke
It fills my mind with wonder
Then I can sense a joy
The Holy Spirit rises up
His peace I now employ

I won’t get isolated
I won’t go off alone
I won’t look at my past
That robs me of my hope
I’ll look to the future
Where God has plans for me
And in His loving arms
I will always be

Don’t get isolated
Don’t crawl inside your head
Allow the Holy Spirit
To bring joy instead
He is waiting for you
To summon Him today
Rise up from that depression
For God will show the way

Mercy and Grace

His Mercy is There

I struggle some days to see
The mercy of God for me
I know He is there
I know that He cares
I just don’t know why He loves me

I know He sees all my faults
He sees the worst parts of me
But He quickly forgives
Then He helps me to live
In the mercy He pours out to me

His mercy is always there
His mercy is always there
No matter where I go
His mercy is there
I cannot escape His love
He showers me from above
When I look at myself
His mercy is there

I have to open my eyes
To see all the love He provides
It’s more than enough
To fill up my cup
He has an enormous supply

Now I can plainly see
That His mercy is meant for me
I raise up my hands
I thank God for His plans
He always does the best for me

His mercy is always there
His mercy is always there
No matter where I go
His mercy is there
I cannot escape His love
He showers me from above
When I look at myself
His mercy is there

The Believers Life

At the Time Appointed

Every morning
Day after day
The sun rises slowly
Casting it’s light
Whether cloudy or clear
We see it approaching
The rays stretching far across the horizon
Creeping slowly across the sky
Until the brilliant light
Peaks above the horizon
At the time appointed

Twice a day
Day after day
The tide rushes in
Farther up the sand
Or higher against the rocks
Footprints disappear
Sand castles fall
Reaching its peak it than recedes
Leaving seaweed and shells
And a smooth sand
At the time appointed

The moon travels
Day after day
Across the sky
Various shapes fill our eyes
Crescent moon then half
Half then full
Then back the other way
Affecting oceans by its pull
Causing the tide to rise and fall
The suns light causes the moons shape
Over and over again
At the time appointed

We all will face God
We all will give account
We all will answer for this life
Jesus is the Way
The Truth
The Life
No man comes to the Father but by Him
Have you accepted Him
So that you will be with Him
At the time appointed

He Watches Over Me

As I lay down and try to sleep 

My eyes well up as tears they weep

I have no doubt my soul He keeps

He watches over me
I try to write the words I hear

Within my heart not through my ear

His words come softly but so clear

He watches over me
I see His face like in a dream 

He is so close He breathes on me

I know He’s there so real it seems

He watches over me 
This reassurance calms my mind

I know His love is surely mine

Now I can sleep sound and sublime

He watches over me 
When I awake in morning time 

To watch the sunrise slowly climb 

I’ll know without a doubt in mind 

He watches over me 

Trusting Jesus Oh How Sweet

It’s so hard to describe it
This peace down in my soul
Whenever trouble comes my way
His peace will take control
There is no doubt or worry
There is no fear or dread
He gives me blessed assurance
That vict’ry is ahead

Once you understand this peace
Then joy is next in line
When all of life seems out of sorts
Abundant joy is mine
He fills my heart with singing
That new song that I love
His joy does overtake me
For I know that He has won

Trusting Jesus oh how sweet
His Spirit is to me
Trusting Jesus all the way
Gives life abundantly

Peace and joy are settled in
Now hope comes crashing through
I know my troubles are but brief
As blessings are produced
There is no hesitation
To face whatever comes
This hope will help me forge ahead
For He has overcome

Trusting Jesus oh how sweet
His Spirit is to me
Trusting Jesus all the way
Gives life abundantly

I’m resting in His mercy
I’m trusting in His grace
No trial can defeat me
His truth I do embrace
His peace is always present
His joy does fill my heart
And hope will bring me through
If from Him I don’t depart

Trusting Jesus oh how sweet
His Spirit is to me
Trusting Jesus all the way
Gives life abundantly
