The rain gently falls The sound is oh, so sweet Nurturing the ground Refreshing the air Life giving water from above This blessing falls on the just And the unjust As does the warmth of the sun The calming breeze The birds sweet lullaby The brilliance of sunset And the glorious splendor of the stars Do you take notice? Do you give thanks each day For the blessings of that day? Even when all is going wrong God is still sending His blessings Start to count them Name them one by one Count your many blessings See what God has done.
Early morning, waiting To hear the voice of God Calling to me deep within my heart Listening so intently For the Spirit's call Suddenly His voice comes like a shout I am here to heal you Lay your burdens down Let me touch you where it hurts the most I am here to save you Give me everything Let me hold you in my loving arms I hear Him calling, longing To draw me close to Him So he can speak so gently in my ear I slowly turn to greet Him Into my life this day And then I hear Him speak some words of cheer I am here to rescue Take you from your trials Bring you into freedom from your flesh Let me overwhelm you Fill you with my grace Give you faith to overcome your fears Finally I yield to Him Peace does flood my soul The world and all its trials fades away I'm leaning on His bosom He holds me in His arms I'm ready to go out and face the day For He has come and spoken Truth into my life That He is with everywhere I go And I can rest assured That He is always mine And in His loving hands I find my home.
Let us journey on Not in our own strength Not by our own power Not following our own spirit But by the Holy Spirit within us Let us journey on Not on our own path Not by our own will Not following our own plans But with the Holy Spirit leading us Don’t worry about where he might lead you Or what you might have to leave behind Let us journey on Let us hear the call Let us leave our cares behind Let us journey on In the Spirit's might Let us fill the will of God
When I consider all that He has done for me When I consider all the love that came from Calvary When I consider that he died so I could be set free I can't help but praise His name When I look up to the heavens and see His majesty When I see the trees to colors and the wind blow mightily When I hear the bird sing sweetly as the sun dawns in the East I can't help but praise His name He is always there to guide me Always right beside me Always there to pick me up if I should start to fall He is there to hear my prayers He is there to dry my tears That is why I praise His name When I lie my body down, and try to go to sleep I can hear His voice speak softly as the day fades quietly He whispers in my ear "My Son I love you, Oh so dear I can’t help but praise His name.
Oh Lord, what a blessing you are to me Each day you wake me and give me breath You make my eyes to open and see your glory The moon shining brightly in the night Smiling down at me The stars flickering so far away, yet so radiant Then comes the dawn The sun showing it’s light ever so slowly And so brilliantly, gilding the clouds with gold Spreading through the sky above You give the birds songs of praise to greet the morning And the day has begun Oh Lord, what a blessing you are to me You give me peace in the midst of my storms You adorn me with joy in the midst of my sorrows Your faith rises up in me when doubt comes in There is hope in just knowing you Hope that all will work out well in the toughest of time Hope that knows there is a better tomorrow Hope that carries me through each day Your love comes in like a flood Capturing me in its arms and holding me close Oh Lord, what a blessing you are to me You heal all my diseases and pains You set my troubled mind at ease You deliver me from all that can oppress me You forgive all my sins and transgressions You teach me through the word of life Your Holy Spirit guides me through this world And comforts me when I am troubled You give me living water that I might not thirst The bread of Life that I might never be hungry You provide all my needs and strengthen me for every battle Oh Lord, what a blessing you ae to me You brought me to a wife who would love me through good times and bad She helps me keep a level head and walk in your ways She is a wonderful mother to her children She is a woman of grace and mercy She laughs and brings joy to the whole house She makes things for her grandchildren to bless them She works hard to provide for our household She loves you with all her heart and serves you with all her soul She is fair and just in all her ways I love her with all that is within me And I know she loves me as well We enjoy being together Oh Lord, what a blessing you are to me You have given me a wonderful family to enjoy Friends that I can call on in times of trouble A church that is loving and kind A Pastor who is wise to help me learn your ways Work for my hands to keep busy A home I can find comfort in A community that is always there for me So many things that bring me pleasure A life filled with joy and peace Oh Lord, what a blessing you are to 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.

The outlook is bleak A cloud descended from above Shrouding the earth with a blanket Dense moisture shrouds all that I can’t see Fog Thick fog Zero visibility when driving fog Pea soup indeed I can’t see the tops of trees Or the house down the street Or the dog barking in the distance Only fog Bleak and dreary As if a sadness covered the earth Direction is lost Where I am is a mystery as I drive Danger lurks closely I must stay aware And awake But then the cloud lifts As if a hand had picked it up It dissipates into nothing Blue sky is all around Either the cloud has just vanished Or it sunk into the ground What is left behind is breathtaking The misty fog left it’s mark Trees covered with frost abound Glistening in the bright blue sky Glorious and beautiful they rise Majestic and full of wonder Wonder at how such a gloomy day’ Could turn so beautiful So quickly I stop to ponder Take a picture And marvel at the glory of God This is our life One minute it can be gloomy Full of lost hope Of fading desires Of things gone wrong Of turns made reluctantly Of dreams dashed Then God lifts the burden He casts His Holy Spirit upon us And we shine We shine by reflecting the glory of the Son His splendor makes us beautiful again ‘His mercy restores our hope His grace removes our faults Once again, the day seems bright Once again all is right I am renewed Restored He has made me shine!
