He Lights Our Path

Rainfall, incessant since daybreak
Gently soaking into the ground
Giving life to all that lives
Much like God's word - the water of life
The living water that springs from within
Incessant, ever flowing
Drawing us closer to Him
The wind, howling wildly
Starting when it wants, where it wants
Ending without a trace
I never know when it is coming,
Or where it is going.
So is the Holy Spirit
Blowing through my life
Encouraging me, guiding me
Showing me His will, His life
Drawing me loser to Him
The sun, giving light to all
Warming us with its radiance
Helping us to see what s around us
Giving life to all it touches
So is the Son, Jesus Christ
He gives life to all he touches
He helps us to see what is inside us
He lights our path
Drawing us closer to Him
All the world glorifies the Father
The heavens declare the Son
All of nature testifies of Him
All of His creation praises His wonderful name
Let us rejoice and be glad in Him!

He Is Always There

In the silent night, He is there
In the midst of thunder, He is there
In the cold north wind, He is there
In the darkest cave, He is there
In the loneliest dungeon
In the lion’s den
In the fiery furnace
He is always there
On the threshing floor
On the mountaintop
On the gathering clouds
He is always there
He is in the burning bush
He is in the fire by night
He is in the cloud by day
He is always there
When trouble comes.  When none stands with you
When darkness is all about.  He is right there beside you
Bow your head.  Fall to your knees in His presence
Let Him lift you up.  Let Him be your strength
He will always be with you
He will never leave you
He is right there beside you
He is always there

Are You Alive?

Are you alive?
Is blood flowing through your veins?
Is your heart beating?
Are you breathing?
Then praise the Lord!
That is all that matters
No trial should keep us from praising Him
No test,
No sickness
No injury
No heartache
No setback
No hurt
Nothing should keep us from Praising Him
Not because He blesses me,
Not because He saved me
Not because He delivers me
Not because He heals me
Not because He guides me
But just because He is!
Let everything that hath breath
Praise the Lord!

Beside Me

Today I can say how good it is
To sleep in my house 
To lay in my bed
To rest in my living room
With the one I love beside me
It was lonely when we were apart
It was hard to sleep
It was uncomfortable to rest 
It was unusual in its waiting
With one beside me now and then
Our Father in heaven gave his son
To be born in a Manger
To die on a cross
To forgive our sins and give us life
So we could be with Him eternally
He cries to us 
Come, rest in my peace
Come, lay in my arms
Come, be with me forever
For you are the one I love
If you don't know Jesus
As your Lord and Savior
Why not ask Him today to forgive you
Ask Him into your heart
And He will save your soul
And you will be with Him
Forever.

Do You Hear Me?

Are you there?
Do you hear me?
As I quietly call your name.
Are you there?
Do you hear me?
My prayer is still the same.
I want to know you more
I want to feel your touch
I want to hear your voice
Do you hear mine?

Are you there?
Do you see me?
As I go through trials of life.
Are you there?
Do you see me?
When my life is full of strife.
I want to know you more
I want to feel your touch
I want to hear your voice
Do you hear mine?

Out of the silence
I hear your voice - 
Gently it speaks to my soul
"I am here
I hear your voice
I will answer in my time
I am here
I see your life
My help is near you all the time
Do not fear
Do not worry
I will never leave your side."

All It Takes

Healed
By His miraculous hand
Healed
He was wounded for our transgressions
Bruised for our iniquities
The chastisement of our peace was upon Him
And by His stripes we are healed
Could the prophet make it any clearer?
Can God make it any clearer?
Have you experienced His healing?
His forgiveness?
His deliverance?
Do you have His peace?
It is right there, waiting for you -
A simple acknowledgement of His sacrifice
And your unworthiness
Is all it takes.
Won't you ask Him in today?
Allow the Savior to heal your hurt
Remove your iniquities
Grant you His peace?
He is standing at the door knocking
Gently knocking at the door of your heart
Now is the accepted time
Today is the day of salvation!

All For His Glory

The mountains bow down
The seas wave
The trees lift their arms
All for His glory

The birds sing their song
The lion roars
The ants build their kingdoms
All for His glory

The sun rises majestically
The moon reflects the light
The stars shine brightly in the dark
All for His glory

All of creation shows His handiwork
All creatures sing His praises
All that have breath praise Him
All for His glory

So should I
I should sing His praises
I should do His will
I should tell others of His love
All for His glory

Declare His mighty works
Tell of His excellent love to us
Shout out in worship to His name
All for His glory

This is what I was designed to do
This is why He made me in my mother’s womb
This is why he gave me breath
To give Him glory
So glorify His name
Shout it from the housetops
Display His wonderful love to others
That they also may know
His glory!

God Never Changes

God never changes.
If there are troubles in your life, 
God can change them to miracles
If you have doubts, 
God can change them to faith
If you are sick, 
God can change you to healed
If you're in sorrow, 
God can change it to joy
If you're trouble, 
God can change it to peace
If you're heart hurts, 
God can change it to comfort
If your lost, 
God can change you to found
If you're in sin, 
God can change you to righteous
If your alone, 
God can change it to oneness with Him
God never changes in His character, 
but he is ever changing our character if we let Him.
Allow Him to change you as He sees fit
It's always for the best.

The Back of the Cross

On the front of the cross is agony 
On the back of the cross is peace
On the front of the cross is sorrow 
On the back of the cross is joy
On the front of the cross is weakness 
On the back of the cross is strength
On the front of the cross is doubt 
On the back of the cross is faith
On the front of the cross is pain 
On the back of the cross is healing
On the front of the cross is deceit 
On the back of the cross is honesty
On the front of the cross are lies 
On the back of the cross is truth
On the front of the cross is bondage
On the back of the cross is freedom
On the front of the cross is darkness 
On the back of the cross is light
On the front of the cross we are lost 
On the back of the cross we find the way
On the front of the cross is sin 
On the back of the cross is forgiveness
On the front of the cross we are stained with sin
On the back of the cross we are white as snow
On the front of the cross is defeat 
On the back of the cross is victory
On the front of the cross is death 
On the back of the cross is eternal life

If we stay on the front of the cross, hell will be our destination
When we go through the cross, and come to the back, our destination is heaven
All is only achieved if we go through the cross.  
Have you seen Him on the front of the cross,  
blood stained, nailed, in agony?  
Have you accepted Him as your sacrifice for your sin? 
If you have, then come through the Cross for victory.  
Come to the back of the cross and realize all God has for you.

He Comes for You

She came into Bethlehem
Meek and mild
Heavy with child
Riding a donkey for many miles
Worn and weary from a long journey
Seeking room to give birth
There was none but a stable
A lowly manger filled with hay
Would be the child’s resting place
Just one stranger in the city
Teaming with visitors
No one knew her
No one cared
No one knew whom she carried in her womb
Yet at his birth
Shepherds from the field came to greet him
They were told by angels to come
Come meet the King
Come meet the Savior
He brings peace on earth
Good will to man
They came
And they bowed
And they worshipped the King
Then they left and told all
And few understood what they said
Mary knew who He was
Joseph knew who He was
But the world did not know who just arrived
In such humility
In such a place as this

He comes into the gate
Lazarus awaits
Freshly risen form the dead
Bartimaeus awaits
His eyes wide open
The crowd awaits
To praise the coming King
Riding on a donkey
Meek and mild
Heavy with His fate and what awaits Him
Not the crowd
Not the praise
But the cross He sees coming for Him
He arrives to Hosannah
Blessed be the one who comes in the name of the Lord
He arrives to praise
Palm branches waving
People shouting and singing
He arrives to death
Calvary looms large in the distance
He knows He will be beaten
He knows He will wear a crown of thorns
He knows He will be condemned to die
He knows He will be nailed to a cross
Crucified
Yet He still comes
In great humility
To fulfill His destiny
And all prophesy
To all who think they know who He is
But have no idea what will become of Him
The pain
The agony
The suffering
The loneliness of the cross
All for us
All for me
All for you 

Will you welcome the King?
Will you lift your palms to worship?
Will you welcome Him today?
Give Him all your praise?
Give your life today?
He gave His for you
Now it’s your turn
Your time
Your destiny
Let Him in
Welcome Him with open arms
He comes to die
Yet He comes to save
He comes to suffer
Yet he comes to heal
He comes to forgive
Yet her takes all your sin
Take His love today
He gives it for you
