Sinking Sand

The sinking sand where I once walked was treacherous indeed
More troublesome than all my woes, more stormy than the sea
While I would struggle to get out, the deeper I did sink
Until I found myself so stuck, I couldn’t even think

But one thing had my head afloat above the muck and mire
A little ray of faith did shine inside my weakened mind
I shouted out to God above to pull me from this mess
I told Him I would walk away and all my sins confess

Then I felt a hand from heaven grab hold of my hand
My body lifted from the mud and landed on dry land
I felt a wind come dry me off and soon I was all clean
I looked up to the heavens above and with my voice I screamed

Thank you, Lord, for saving me and giving me new life
I wasn’t sure if all my sins were too much to survive
I now know that you are the way to leave my troubled past
I only have to call your name to have a peace that lasts

Please help me Lord to always call when troubles come my way
Help me turn to you when temptation comes to play
Help me always turn from sin and walk within your light
Help me to remember your redeeming sacrifice.


Free From Satan’s Games

Jesus you're my guiding light
Jesus you turn dark to light
Jesus you have won the fight
And set the captives free

Jesus you have shown the way
Jesus you give grace each day
Jesus you're the one I praise
For you have set me free

Free from all my past of sin
Free from troubles deep within
Free from what my life has been
You've made me new today

Free from fear and doubt and shame
Free from playing Satan’s games
Free from being quite insane
You've showed me a new way

So I will sing your praises loud
So all the world can hear
That Jesus is the Lord of all
There's nothing now to fear

Just give your life to Him today
And He'll show you a brand new way
His mercy and His grace abound
To all who call His name.

Greatness out of This Great Mess

This was written back in 2017 when I was still undergoing Chemo treatments. I never did get it posted on this site

Riddled with cancer
Shoulder just quits
Neuropathy covers my feet
Two stem cell transplants
Weakness ensues
God will make some greatness out of this great mess

Jesus the master healer 
He supplies all the strength that I need
I fill all my days
With words of His praise
As His healing starts working in me

First I walked with a walker
A cane followed closely behind
I walked just a block at a time
But my drive just kept up
With my faith in my Lord
Now a mile a day isn't long

My shoulder would not move at all
The doctors could not understand
They said maybe never would heal
Movement came in ten months 
Therapy started at once
Now full range of motion is here

Jesus the master healer 
He supplies all the strength that I need
I fill all my days
With words of His praise
As His healing starts working in me

God will make some greatness
Out of this great mess
Cancer is no longer found
I'm healed from above
With doctors involved
In the therapy of Jesus love 

Jesus the master healer 
He supplies all the strength that I need
I fill all my days
With words of His praise
As His healing starts working in me

Astounding Grace

I am not forsaken.  I will not give up
I found my strength in Jesus. He is enough
Though Satan storms against me I will not turn aside
I will stand strong in the battle with Jesus by my side

It seems old Satan tries every means he can
To turn me from my Savior so I will trust in man
I will not be deceived by all His trickery
I’ll turn my heart to God for He’s my victory

Right now I call on Jesus and all the host of heaven
To come and hold me up in the comfort of His hand
The enemy seems strong but God is stronger still
I’ll fight on through this trial and heed my Saviors will

And when I gain the victory I’ll lift my hands in praise
To my precious loving Father who filled me with His grace
I’ll worship Him for giving me the mercy that I need
When Satan comes against me I’ll be found down on my knees

On my knees to pray for deliverance each day
On my knees to offer up my life to Jesus way
On my knees to praise Him for Her will show the way
On my knees before His throne astounded by His grace

For victory can only come when I am on my knees
The enemy is helpless when my cries to God increase
And even if it seems that my prayers have not been heard
I will stay down on my knees and trust His holy word

I know He won’t forsake me.  I know He won’t depart
I know that His great joy and peace will come and soothe my heart
I know without a doubt that all things work for good 
I know that Jesus loves me and my prayers He understood

Thank you Lord for giving me this peace within my soul
Thank you Lord for mercy when the devil seemed so bold
Thank you Lord for showing me your astounding grace
This day and every day I will lift your name in praise
Effective Prayer

Help Me

 Lord I need your mercy
 For the sins I do
 Help me know your love, Lord
 Help me follow you
  
 Lord I need forgiveness
 For my thoughts today
 Help me cleanse my mind, Lord
 Help me find my way
  
 Lord I need your healing
 For my aches and pains
 Help me to believe, Lord
 Help me breathe again
  
 Lord I need compassion
 For all who are in need
 Help me to reach out, Lord
 Help me do good deeds
  
 Lord I need deliverance
 From the mess I’m in
 Help me see your grace, Lord
 Help me rise within 

His Benefits

 I will bless the Lord with all my soul for all He’s done for me
 When He gave His life so long ago on a hill called Calvary
 The stripes He took and the pain He bore He suffered all for me
 Now I’ll lift my voice and raise my hands to the one who set me free
  
 Through His death that day upon the cross I am blessed in many ways
 His benefits will follow me through each and every day
 The sins I have committed against Him were washed away
 I now stand before my Savior for my debt has been repaid
  
 What a host of benefits He has for me
 Forgiveness off my sins and healing for my pain
 Redemption from destruction a crown of mercy there for me
 He fills me with good things so my youth is back again
  
 He is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and so kind
 He has taken all my sins; they have all been left behind 
 He has separated them as far as east is from west
 Now every day He gives to me only what He knows is best
  
 I will bow down at His throne and lift my voice in praise
 For the wonder of His mercy and His amazing grace
 He deserves to be the center of my world all of my days
 Jesus is the only one who is worthy of my praise
   
The Believers Life

You Are Enough For Me

 When I am down, you pick me up
 When I am dry, you fill my cup
 When I am lost, you give me hope
 You are enough for me
  
 When I have sorrow, you give me joy
 When I’m in doubt, your faith I employ
 When there are storms, you fill me with peace
 You are enough for me
  
 When I had nothing, you came along
 When I was sad, you gave me a song
 When I get lonely you whisper to me
 You are enough for me
  
 You are enough, more than enough
 You are enough for me
 All this world offers will never fulfill
 The needs that well up in me
 When I turn to you, I find I am full
 Because you are enough for me
  
 Through terror and fear
 Through troubles and tears
 You always come through for me
 Through trials and tests
 You know what is best
 Because you are enough for me
  
 Stay close to me, Jesus
 Stay right by my side
 I’ll try my hardest to always abide
 And when I should wander
 To left or to right
 You’ll guide me back on the path
 Because you are enough for me’
  
 Your grace is enough
 Your mercy enough
 Your peace is enough
 Your joy is enough
 Your hope is enough
 Your strength is enough
 Your healing enough
 Your love is enough
 Yes, you are enough for me 

Darkness Can Not Stay

 I saw the Light.
 It shone in my heart,
 And darkness fled before it.
 Where the Light shines in my life
 Darkness cannot stay.
 Oh, Lord
 Help me open all the doors in my life to your Light.
 Help me allow all my darkness to be purged
 By your glorious Light.
 The Light of your word will heal
 The Light of your word will deliver me
 The Light of your word will set me free
 The Light of your word will bring me peace
 The Light of your word will bring me Joy
 The Light of your word will help me love my neighbor as myself
 The Light of your word brings me life abundantly
 Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
 So that I may see your glorious Light.
 So darkness will be removed from my life
 And I will walk with you every moment of everyday.

It’s All Good

 When I come up against an ocean of fear
 And doubt surrounds me like the enemy
 There is nowhere to turn for escape
 There is nowhere to hide
 Defeat seems imminent
 I hear you say
 It’s all good
  
 When the trials are hotter than I can stand
 And the lion is waiting in his den
 There is no hope for relief
 There is nowhere to run
 Death is right around the corner
 I hear you say
 It’s all good
  
 I turned the sea to dry land
 I turned air into manna
 I turned water into wine
 I turned bones into flesh
 I turned walls into rubble
 I turned death to life
 I turned all these things before
 I can turn them again
  
 So when all seems lost
 And there’s nothing left to do
 Turn to Jesus
 Turn to prayer                       
 Turn to peace
 Turn to joy
 Turn to hope
 Because in the end
 No matter what it looks like now
 No matter how bad it might seem
 No matter what you think
 God says it’s all good
