How He Loves Me So

 I long for the sound of His voice
 Teaching me how to rejoice
 He whispers so clear
 In my spiritual ear
 Hoping I'll make the right choice
  
 I long for the touch of His hand
 Confirming the path of His plan
 As he gently leads
 And quietly pleads
 He urges me to understand
  
 He loves me, more than I can know
 He loves me, and promises to show
 His grace is complete
 As I sit at His feet
 Oh, How He loves me so
  
 I long to see His face
 To feel His warm embrace
 He's always right there
 To hear every prayer
 He leads me inside heavens gates
  
 I long to know His love
 Streaming down from above
 He dwells deep inside
 In my heart he abides
 His spirit descends like a dove
  
 He loves me, more than I can know
 He loves me, and promises to show
 His grace is complete
 As I sit at His feet
 Oh, How He loves me so
  
 I shout Hallelujah to His name
 Glorious Hallelujahs to His name
 His praises I sing
 My worship I bring
 My voice cries blessed be His name
 My voice cries blessed be His name
   

Your Great Love for me

As i look at all you’ve done for me
My heart explodes with love
This undeserving sinner
Knows that you have done enough
And if all of your great mercy
Were to ens this very day
I would atill lift up my voice ro you
And give you all my praise

Great God of grzce and holiness
You’ve made my heart brand new
I think about all you have done
And draw my strength from you
My prayers are always heard by you
You answer ecery time
All that I am and will become
Comes from your great supply

Great God of peace and joyfulness
I come to you today
And ask that you will hear my cry
And gyide me on my way
I don’t deserve all that you’ve done
I don’t deserve your grace
But you have sent yoir only Son
He came to take my place

So i will lift my voice to you
My worship I will give
Because you have redeemed my soul
You’ve given me this gift
All of my days I’ll lift your name
All of my days I’ll give my praise
All of my days I’ll celebrate
Your great love for me

Amazing, Incredible Love

 What kind of love did He have for me
 When He came to earth to die?
 What kind of love did He have for me
 When He sacrificed His life?
 What kind of love did He have for me
 That I did not realize?
 Amazing, incredible love is what He had for me
  
 What kind of love does He have for me
 That He walks with me each day?
 What kind of love does He have for me
 That He guides me on my way?
 What kind of love does He have for me
 That I know He’s here to stay?
 Amazing, incredible love is what He has for me
  
 What kind of love should I have for you
 Even in the hardest times?
 What kind of love should I have for you
 Would I die to give you life?
 What kind of love should I have for you
 Every time you cross the line?
 Nothing short of amazing
 Nothing short of incredible
 Nothing short of a miracle should be my love for you
   

Forever I Am Yours

 I don’t know why you love me Lord
 But you do.  Yes, you do
 I don’t know why you love me
 But you do.
  
 I’m not a model citizen for heaven
 So many things I don’t deserve
 Yet you have given me your mercy
 You’ve given me a heart that’s pure
  
 The love you’ve shown me has saved me
 From every trial that I might face
 By faith I’ll follow in your footsteps
 I know I’ll never lose your grace
  
 I don’t know why you saved me Lord
 But you did.  Yes you did.
 I don’t know why you saved me Lord
 But you did
  
 I know you’ve called me out of darkness
 So I can show the world your holy light
 I pray my life will be a witness
 Of your redeeming sacrifice
  
 You took on the stripes, the curses of man
 The crown on your head and the nails in your hands
 You carried your cross to calvary’s hill
 You gave up your life so I could be filled
 With your love.  Hallelujah
 Hallelujah.  Hallelujah
  
 I don’ know why you love me
 But you do.  I know you do
 I don’t know why you saved me
 But you did.  Oh Yes, you did
 Your love has saved me forever
 Your love has saved me forever
 Your love has saved me forever
 Forever I am your, forever I am yours! 

If He Loves Me

If He loves me why do I suffer
If He loves me why do I hurt
If He loves me why do the trials of my life bring trouble at every turn
If He loves me why do I tremble
at what the next day will bring
If He loves me when will He come to my side and remove all the things that sting
 
Isn’t it enough that He died for me to take away my sins?
Isn’t it enough that the comforter comes to settle your heart within?
All that this life will throw at you will never compare to His love
So when trials and tests try to steal all your rest
Come to Jesus for He is enough
 
His love is always there.  It is always a comfort, always a resting place when trouble comes.  We don’t have to wonder if he loves us if we will just look at the cross.  Look at what he went through for you.  Look at how much He suffered because he loves you.  There is no pain greater than the pain of His heart breaking when the Father turned His head and darkness covered the sky.  He had never been separated from His Father, not for all eternity past.  And yet for three hours, He was covered with sin, and the Father could not look.  That is how much Jesus loves you and me.
 
When trouble surround you and it seems that a temptation is too hard to bear, get that picture of the cross in your mind.  Think about Jesus on that cross.  In your minds eye look at the blood dripping down from His brow.  Look at the tears in His flesh.  Look at the nails in His feet and hands.  Look at His love poured out.  This is the image that will get you through your tests and trials.  He loved you so much that he stretched out His hands and died for you.  Isn’t that enough?  Does He really need to do any more for you to show you His love?
 
John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believed in Him would have everlasting life.
 

Poured Out

I can’t imagine why He would come down
From His throne in the heavens above
To become a little baby in a manger
It was His love.  It was His love
 
I can’t imagine why He would spend time
With a group of ragged men He called His own
He taught them of the ways of His kingdom
It was His love.  It was His love
 
A love that knows no boundaries
‘A love that knows no end
A love that keeps on giving
A love that calls me friend
A love that gives itself away
A love that welcomes all
His love is more than I can know
His love is all in all
 
I can’t imagine why he would give His life
To take away my sin and my shame
Then he rose again to grant me eternal life
It was His love.  It was His love
 
Poured out through the ages.  Poured out on the earth
Poured out from His heart of hearts to all who find His worth
Poured out for our sins.  Poured out for our souls
The blood He shed was poured out by His love
 
A love that knows no boundaries
‘A love that knows no end
A love that keeps on giving
A love that calls me friend
A love that gives itself away
A love that welcomes all
His love is more than I can know
His love is all in all
 

Taking Time

I don’t plan to disappoint Him but I do
I don’t plan to contradict Him but I do
I don’t plan to have a bad day where I walk away from Him
But I do.  Way too often I do
 
I don’t listen to His voice like I should
I don’t walk in His footsteps like I should
I don’t think about the ways I can witness of His love
Not I don’t.  Way too often I don’t
 
Taking time to be with Jesus should be my priority
Not just eking out a life of fun and games
Taking time to be with Jesus is my goal and my desire
I can’t remain where I am.  I have to change
 
I must spend time in His word every day
I must walk away from sin every day
I must tell of His great love to everyone I meet
Yes I must.  Every day I must
 
Taking time to walk like Jesus is my prayer
So that I can touch the sinners where they are
Taking time to spread His story to the ones who need it most
Ever word I speak will make them more aware
 
There was a song many years ago that Larnell Harris sang entitled “I Miss My Time With You.”  It represents the voice of God saying to someone how much he misses spending time with them because they haven’t been praying or reading the word like they should.  It’s a beautiful song with a great message.  When we love someone here on this earth, we want to spend time with them.  We will go out of our way often to spend time with them.  Their voice and their face are like caffeine top our spirit – they pick us up!
 
Way too often the cares of this life take precedence over spending time in prayer, in the word, and in our witness.  At least, that is true with me.  If I do not spend that time in the morning, I may never find it in the middle of the day. I have to Make Time!  I have to deliberately carve out some time, best in the morning, to spend with Him.  If I do that over and  over again, soon it will be a part of my routine and I will be spending the time with Him that I need to.  It is up to me to spend time with Him, because he is always with me.  I just am not aware of that until I turn to Him and seek Him first.
 
Psalm 63:1 King James Version
63 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
 

You Overrun Me

Sometimes I find myself running. Running away from you
Habits and traits of the past will surface and I don’t know what to do
I feel I have called on your mercy much more than you want me to
So I turn and just start running.  Running away from you
 
But you overrun me.  You won’t let me go
You catch me in full stride.  My running is slowed
It’s then that your mercy and grace is bestowed
You pour out your love.  You pour out your love
 
Then I look into your eyes.  Tears roll down my cheeks
I know that your strength has overcome my weakness
You take me in your arms and I can hardly speak
My head rests on your shoulder.  Your mercy at its peak
 
You overrun me when life gets me down
I know in the flood of shame you won’t let me drown
You take off my garment and give me a gown
You pour out your love.  You pour out your love
 
You turn me around and we walk in your grace
I look and I see a smile on your face
I can’t help but wonder what you see in me
That when I run away you come after me
 
Your love overruns me when I go astray
Your mercy and grace will not go away
So I sing this song and give you my praise
You pour out your love on me
 
In the song Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing the last verse says “Prone to wander Lord I feel it. Prone to leave this God I love.”  That is our human condition.  This flesh we live in, that our souls live in, is prone to walk away from the statutes of God.  We find ourselves running from the very God who has saved us and died for us.  We run because we feel shame, or guilt, or unloved or alone.  We run because we don’t think God will forgive us again for that foul mouth, or that lying tongue, or our impulsive flesh. But nothing could be farther from the truth. 
 
In the parable of the prodigal son we find the father looking for His son to come home after he had been gone for weeks, or months or years.  We don’t know how long the son had been gone.  The father was always watching for him, hoping he would come home.  When that day came that he saw his son in the distance, he ran to meet him.  He ran to welcome his son home, to pour out his love on him and embrace him.  I can see the son as his father came running, turn and start to run away, afraid of what the father might do to him.  But the father overran him and wrapped his arms around him and pour out grace and mercy on him.  He loved his son just like God loves us!

Two Things

There’s only two things you must know
To be all you can be
Thing one is His great mercy
Thing two is grace that’s free
 
Mercy reached out to touch our lives
When Jesus came from above
Took the form of a baby
Because of His great love
 
Mercy was with Him every day
As He healed all that would come
Taught the ways of the Kingdom
Truly was God’s Son
 
Mercy then took Him to the cross
Where He bled and died for me
Mercy rose Him up from the grave
So I’d live eternally
 
The greatest show of mercy
The world has ever seen
Is something I must know deep down
Because it was done for me          
 
Grace has supplied my every need
From the moment I was born
From the fresh air that I breath each day
To the sunrise every morn
 
Grace followed us as we grew in years
For it truly gave us life
Each trial that we faced has passed
And grace helped us survive
 
Grace gave the greatest gift of all
When we asked the Savior in
By grace are you saved through faith my friend
It is grace that makes you win
 
This grace that’s so amazing
Grace always blesses me
He gives it freely to us
Supplying ever need
 
When you are looking out ahead
At what your life may bring
Make sure that grace and mercy
Are the most important thing
