Your Choice

We are not robots
Not programmed for life
Not controlled by another
Not hard wired to a specific task
Not bound to a certain set of rules
Not mindlessly obedient

We are human beings
Independent
Determined to our own way
Free to choose our destiny
Free to decide our path
Free to walk where we want to walk

God created us
To love Him
But to make our own choice
Salvation is free
But not mandatory
You can choose
Heaven or hell
It’s up to you
What will you choose

Unexplainable

Sometimes I can explain and other times I can’t
The science of this world is not enough
It can only go so far
To explain the sun and stars
But just cannot explain my Father’s love

They say it was a big bang that started everything
And all creation came from not a thing
But then they say that something
Cannot come from nothing
It seems they just can’t grasp a lot of things

Perhaps it was a big bang that began the world we know
It happened in the blink of an eye
The Father spoke the Word
Let there be Light was heard
And all the universe came into sight

But to explain a Father that would give His only Son
To die a painful death upon a tree
To save a sinful soul
To come and make us whole
I can’t explain His ardent love for me

So when you talk of science and logical response
Just remember that He died to give you life
It just does not make sense
For God to recompense
This kind of love for one’s who cause Him strife

We all were sinners lost with no hope for future life
Hell and it’s torture was our destiny
But God did send His Son
He was the only one
Who could give eternal life to you and me

So today I ask you please to put aside that hardened heart
And accept what Jesus did for you and me
Because science can’t explain
His purpose and His plan
It’s faith that will decide your destiny

No Matter What

I will praise you
No matter what
The storm may come
Lightning may flash
Thunder may roll
Flooding rains may sweep in
These may depict
A trial in my life
Where all seems lost
Where life seems bad
Yet I will praise you

I will praise you
No matter what
Illness may come
To weaken me
A deadly cancer
Chemotherapy
Neuropathy affects every move
Fatigue is always present
In the midst of it all
At the lowest of times
I will praise you

I will praise you
No matter what
When finances falter
Bills can’t get paid
There seems no relief
Worry sets in
Doubts of your provision
Wonder if we will make it through
Will the creditors sue
Will it only get worse
In the midst of it all
Yet I will praise you

You Oh God are my source and strength
My stronghold in the midst of the storm
My healer when sickness comes
My provider when I see no way out
My strong and mighty tower
My deliverer and counselor
You are always there
By my side
So no matter what
I will praise you

Treasures in Heaven

I used to seek fame and fortune
My friends were what mattered to me
I’d laugh and I’d smile
I was high all the while
In their favor I wanted to be

Now my life values are different
Pleasing God is what matters to me
The one that I seek
Is truly unique
Just like Christ know want to be

This world has some treasures of dust
Their future is dim and bleak
What I will lay up
Will not corrupt
It is treasures in heaven for me

All Hail the King

I see cherubim and seraphim
As they dance in sheer delight.
The elders bow before the Lamb
A he comes full in their sight.
The sound of anthems fills the skies
And the clouds bear majesty
As we sing around His throne
.
All hail the King
Who is sitting on the throne
All hail the one
Who came to earth below.
He chose to bleed and die
So that I could have new life.
Now the heavens sound his praise forevermore.

As angels gather ’round the throne of God
And their praises soar to the heavens,
I enter the throne room and bow on my face
At the sight of Holy splendor.
I hear loud hosannas ring
And hallelujahs sing,
I can’t help but join the chorus with my praise

All hail the King
Who is sitting on the throne
All hail the one
Who came to earth below.
He chose to bleed and die
So that I could have new life.
Now the heavens sound his praise forevermore.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah to the King.
Loud Hosannas in the highest
Is the chorus that we sing.

Prints in the Snow

When I can’t sense your presence you’re still there
When I’m not sure you’re list’ning you hear my prayer
If the clouds fill the sky
Or the stars are shining bright
I know that you’re still there

When I can’t hear your voice you still speak
When I feel alone my heart you seek
If I hear the birds sing
Or this wind on the wing
I know that you’re talking to me

When I can’t feel your touch you are near
When I’m lost and in despair I’ll not fear
With the sunrise at morn
And the new day is born
I can know that my prayers you will hear

When I don’t understand you still know
When I can’t see your plan your love shows
Day by day you give grace
As I lift up my praise
Then my path is like prints in the snow

You’ll never leave me
Never forsake me
Never let me go
I can take rest
And know that I’m blessed
Because your love will always show

More Than Able

Oh Lord, My God
I worship you because you are more than able
When my finances run dry,
My cupboards are bear,
And the bills are due
You are more than able to provide
In some way things will get taken care of
You will send someone
Or simply have someone mail a check
Or wire help to me
Because you love me
And I have followed your way

When I am sick
My body in pain
No energy to do daily tasks
You are more than able to heal me
Give me strength again
Take away all the pain
Whether through doctors or a miracle
I know it’s your hand that heals me
Because you love me
And I have followed your way

When the enemy comes in
And torments my mind
Luring me away from your word
Away from your way
Enticing me with his words of pleasure
And earthly treasures
You are more than able to deliver me
Keep me safe
Guide me back to your path
So I will again hear your voice
And run from the enemy
Because you love me
And I have followed your way

When I am alone
My friends have turned their backs on me
They speak evil of me
They only want me out of their lives
Not from anything I have done
Except kept your word
And shared your love
You are more than able
To comfort me
And walk with me through the hard times
You protect me from slander
And bring me close to your side
Because you love me
And I have followed your way

When I have sinned
And done what was not right in your eyes
I feel overwhelmed with grief
Because it hurts you
When I stray from the truth
I feel distant from you
I fall on my knees
Repent
And ask you to forgive me
You are more than able
And more than willing
To forgive me
To wash me white as snow
To remove my sin
As far as the East is from the West
Because you love me
And I have followed your way

Oh Lord My God
I worship you because you are more than able
In every storm
In every trial
In every sickness
In every heartache
In every need
In every mess up I may have
You are there
You are more than able to bring me back
To your side

Little Mercies 2

Little mercies day by day
Little mercies all the way
God provides them one by one
Through the love of His own Son

Came to die that I might be
From my sin and shame set free
Leads me by His gentle hand
Guides me to His loving plan

All the way gives joy and peace
Causes me to be at ease
Always stays right by my side
Just in case I fall or slide

I will praise His love and grace
As I worship every day
For the mercies He has shown
To all of us He calls His own

Lord of Lords I love you so
On your path I’ll always go
I will lift your name on high
I will raise hands to the sky

Glory glory to the Son
For all the wonders He has done
He is holy just and true
Helping me and helping you

Little mercies day by day
Little mercies all the way
God provides them one by one
Through the love of His own Son

His Eye is on Me

There are days when I wander off the path
Like a sheep that wanders off from the flock
I find that I have lost my way
Because my heart is prone to stray
I wonder if I’ll ever make it back

The briars and the brambles prick and wound me
I find myself desiring to return
I cry out to my God above
He watches over me with love
And guides me so I’ll know which way to turn

His eye is on me
He watches over me
Even in my darkest times
He is there beside
His eye is on me
He will guide me safely home
When I wander away
He is there

I’ve learned that in His love I will abide
For even when I turn and go astray
His eye is always watching me
Eventually I come to see
That when I’m lost He’s there to make a way

He makes a way through sickness
He makes a way through doubt
He makes a way through trials
He’ll always pull me out

His eye is on me
He watches over me
Even in my darkest times
He is there beside
His eye is on me
He will guide me safely home
When I wander away
He is there

Constant Change

It amazes me to this day
That we’re alarmed by climate change
God created the heavens above
He created the winds and waves

There’s a constant change going on
It’s the way it was made to be
But we acquiesce to the thought
That man can destroy God’s decree

Man also desires to dispel
The truth about Jesus Christ
That He is the only way
To procure eternal life

Our choice is plain you see
Will we listen to God or man
I for one choose my God
And always trust in His plan
