Fixer-Upper

When I was lost He found me
Set me on the narrow path
I could not find my way without Him
When I was sick He healed me
Gave me strength to rise from bed
My body healed without and within

When I was lonely He sat with me
Let me know that he was near
Oh what a comfort He is when by my side
When I was afraid He calmed me
Whispered peace into my ear
Now in His daily presence I can hide

The Lord is my fixer-upper
He makes me new each day
I’ll trust in Him
I’ll always win
As long as I follow His way

When I was broken He fixed me
Put me back together again
I’m a new creature whole and alive in Him
When I was in bondage He freed me
Paid the price to redeem me from sin
I owe my life to my Lord so I give it to Him

The Lord is my fixer-upper
He makes me new each day
I’ll trust in Him
I’ll always win
As long as I follow His way

In sorrow or in pain
In sunshine or rain
In doubt or in faith
In loss or in gain
He always is near
To ease me from fear
I trust in His holy name

The Lord is my fixer-upper
He makes me new each day
I’ll trust in Him
I’ll always win
As long as I follow His way

His Plan

Tiny granules of gleaming white sand
Slither through the hourglass of time
That signifies my lifespan
I cannot see this occurrence
I know not how much sand has emptied itself
From top to bottom
Nor can I perceive how much remains
To still work it’s way through
I am completely at God’s mercy
Then I make a perceived costly mistake
As I proceed down the pathway of life
I pause
I imagine that I have damaged my relationship
With my God who controls the sand
Has the plan been altered
Has the master removed some sand
Have a done irreparable damage
To the outcome
I ponder
Do I really think I am powerful enough
To upset the meticulous plans
Of Almighty God
Who formed me in my mother’s womb
Who knew me before He formed me
Who knows all from beginning end
Reality enters my mind and my spirit
As I acknowledge His authority
To allow whatever is needed into my life
To mold and make me into His perfect vessel
I humbly ask for His mercy
I give Him thanks for giving me this trial
I accept with joy this challenge
I lift my hands in praise
To Him who sits on the throne
I proceed

From This Moment On

I was drifting
Far away from you
Didn’t take time to pray
Or praise you each day
I was struggling
To make sense of life
Then I turned to the cross
And I found what I lost

You paid the price for me;
Suffered and died for me.
Rose from the dead to give
Eternal life
I have so much to be
Thankful for now I see
Everything you have done
To give me life

So from this moment on
I am yours every day.
From this moment on
I will follow your ways
From this moment on
I will give you my praise.
You are the Lord of my life
From this moment on

I am trusting
My whole life to you.
I will take time to pray
Ae you each day
I am seeking
To draw close to you
So I’ll worship your name
And I’ll rest in your grace

You give your love to me;
Pour out your grace so free.
Your Holy Spirit brings
Joy to my soul
I have so much to be
Thankful for now I see.
Everything you have done
To give me life

Moment by moment
I’ll take time to pray
Moment by moment
I’ll worship your name
Moment by moment
I’ll trust in your grace
Every moment of every day

So from this moment on
I am yours every day.
From this moment on
I will follow your ways
From this moment on
I will give you my praise.
You are the Lord of my life
From this moment on

Plans

I often come up with wonderful plans
Of when I should go and when I should stand
But most of the time those plans are in place
I find myself falling flat on my face

I’m not very good at thinking real clear
The words that I say are not what they hear
My plan makes me say thing I should not
They cause those around me to grow rather hot

I cry to the Lord please help me to speak
It’s your words I want and your plan I seek
Whenever I revert to ways of my own
I find that I’m closer to being disowned

Your gentle sweet voice echoes soft in my ear
I quiet way down so you I can hear
You tell me to stop and follow your ways
Things will be better in upcoming days

I hope that I will learn something from this
That is my prayer and that is my wish
To follow His plan every day of my life
I will not get lost and peace will be mine

If you find you are wand’ring through life on your own
And the snares are around you outside or at home
Listen to Jesus and follow His plan
He’ll firmly guide you with His gentle hand
