All The Day Long

Gently laying on my bed
Pillow nestling weary head
By His hand He wisely led
All the day long

Closing tired eyes to sleep
Falling into night so deep
Knowing He my soul did keep
All the day long

Sun awakens as I rise
Looking to the eastern skies
He will brighten waking eyes
All the day long

Hours are filled with things to do
Giving joy to me and you
He has plans forever new
All the day long

Constantly amazed by grace
Looking for His loving face
Lifting up my voice in praise
All the day long

What a Savior what a King
Walks with me through everything
He deserves the praise I sing
All the day long

Time has swiftly passed away
Night has overtaken day
He has been my Rock and stay
All the day long

What An Awesome God I Serve

I’ve had days when I was weary and days when I was sad
Days when I was healthy and days when I was glad
In all my days I realized one very simple truth
Gods goodness always overwhelmed my trials

What an awesome God I serve
Always there to meet my need
I will sing His praise
Worship Him always
What an awesome God I serve

I’ve had days when I was sick and days when I was down
Days when I was healthy and days I walked alone
But one truth stood for sure through every single hour
God helped me through each moment by His power

What an awesome God I serve
Always there to meet my need
I will sing His praise
Worship Him always
What an awesome God I serve

In my weakness He gives strength
In my struggles He gives hope
In my loneliness He comes and talks with me
In my sickness He brings health
In my sorrow He bring joy
In my weariness He restores my seeking soul

What an awesome God I serve
Always there to meet my need
I will sing His praise
Worship Him always
What an awesome God I serve

Today and Tomorrow

The past is the past
It is gone
Over with
Finished
What has been done is done
And can’t be undone
Can’t be redone
What has been said has been
And can not be been back
We can not change
The past
We can not go back
And do it over
We can not escape it

But we can overcome it
Wipe out any negative effects
Rise above any wrongdoings
Become better because of it
We can
Make it disappear
And no longer be a conduit
For doubt
Or fear
Or worry
Or misgivings
We can
Let it go
To embrace the only thing we have
Today
And tomorrow

God says
He will wipe away our sins
And wash them white as snow
He will remove our sin
As far as the East is from m the West
They no longer have a hold on me
They no longer control me
I look to the only thing I have
Today
And tomorrow

Rise up
Start over
Let your life shine
Let your voice be heard
Be free from your past
Live the life you were meant to live
Today
And tomorrow

Wonderful Is Our God

I was walking down the street this morning
Just before the breaking dawn
The birds were singing melodies
It made a joyful song
I asked the Lord to help me understand
The chorus they sang out
And He whispered these words in my ear
And I began to shout

Wonderful is our God
So wonderful are His ways
He makes the sun to rise
Every single day
Wonderful is our God
So wonderful to me
I’ll sing my song out loud for all to hear

When I wake up tomorrow I’ll know what to do
As I rise up out of bed
The birds have given me a song
It’s stuck inside my head
I will offer up my praise to the Lord most high
For the blessings He gives me
He is worthy of my praise each day
I will gladly stand and sing

Wonderful is our God
So wonderful are His ways
He makes the sun to rise
Every single day
Wonderful is our God
So wonderful to me
I’ll sing my song out loud for all to hear

There is never a moment He’s not worthy
Never a moment He’s not there
Waiting to hear my voice
Waiting to hear my praise
He inhabits the praise of His people
And I want Him to be near
I will lift my voice up high

Wonderful is our God
So wonderful are His ways
He makes the sun to rise
Every single day
Wonderful is our God
So wonderful to me
I’ll sing my song out loud for all to hear

Stay Calm

If you want to gain
A sure sense of peace
Then don’t let tomorrow creep in
Today’s all you’ve got
So give that to God
His grace is a timely free gift

He does not give more
Than you need for today
Until the next day has come
So don’t fret or worry
And don’t be distressed
He’ll give what you need to stay calm

 

In response to the daily prompt Timely

The Plan

I can assure you
That God has a plan for you
Which will be better than yours
I know for certain
That His way is destined
To wipe away all of your tears

When you give in
And respond to His calling
He’ll guide you each step of the way
And when it gets hard
He’ll send in His mercy

Just put them in His loving hands

To put you together again

He Will Handle It

People ask me why
There’s cancer in my life
When I have done my best to serve the Lord
Others ask me how
A loving God allows
The suffering of a baby with disease

Some will ask me when
The prejudice will end
So people of this world can live in peace
Others ask me what
Will stop those who corrupt
The morals keep on going down it seems

I answer them with patience
For my faith is in the Lord
I know that He works all things for our good
It matters not to me
The answers that you seek
Because I know that God is in control

He will handle it
All the heartache that you feel
He will handle it
When your life seems so unreal
When all reason has escaped you
And it seems there’s no way out
Just trust your loving God
He will handle it

The word says that His ways
Are much higher than mine
His thoughts are too magnificent to know
If I would just give in
And trust His loving hand
All worry in my life would have to go

We live this life by faith
Where we place it is the key
To how each day will bring us peace or fear
I’m trusting in the Lord
Through every coming storm
My confidence in Him will long endure

And when I face a test
I can calmly sit and rest
For it matters not what storm will come my way
I’m trusting in His word
I know He’s in control
He’ll bring good out of every single day

He will handle it
All the heartache that you feel
He will handle it
When your life seems so unreal
When all reason has escaped you
And it seems there’s no way out
Just trust your loving God
He will handle it

I Need You, Lord

I need you, Lord

In the morning
When I awake
Before the sun comes up
I need you

You give me air to breath
You give the light for sight
You give the sounds of spring
As bird’s sing
I need you, Lord

I need you, Lord

I the midst of the day
When the world is all around
Trouble presents itself
Temptation lurks in corners
I need you

You light my path with your word
You remind me of your great love
You keep me safe in the storm
In your arms
I need you, Lord

I need you, Lord

At the end of the day
When sleep is knocking
My tired body needs rest
From all the day’s events
I need you

You calm my soul so I can sleep
You reassure me of your grace
You lay me down with your peace
And mercy
I need you, Lord

Not a moment goes by
A second or minute
That I do not need you, Lord
What a wonderful thing
To know you are near
Whenever I need you, Lord

Surviving The Tempest

I’ll weather the storm
Because you own the weather
You send the wind and the rain
So when dark clouds roll
And life seems too dreary
I’ll know you control the day

I’ll survive the tempest
For you own the sea
The wind and waves obey
So when I’m adrift
And I think I might drown
I’ll know you will guide my way

There’s nothing can come my way
That you do not rule the day
I trust you alone
Through all of life’s storms
I know you will guide my way

I’ll get through this trial
For you are my guide
You urge me to keep going on
So when hard times come
And I’m ready to quit
I know that you’ve just begun

There’s no situation
No storm and no sea
That can ever topple this ship
For you hold me up
When I think I’ll fall
I daily depend on your grip

There’s nothing can come my way
That you do not rule the day
I trust you alone
Through all of life’s storms
I know you will guide my way

Wonderful You Are

I lift my heart
I lift my hands
I lift my eyes
In praise to you

I lift my voice
I lift my words
I lift my song
In praise to you

I lift your name
Above all names
I lift my praise
And worship you
Jesus, wonderful you are

Wonderful, oh so wonderful
Jesus Lamb of God
Came to save the world
Wonderful, you are wonderful
What a friend I have in you
