Turn Around

I was wandering in the wilderness this morning
Wondering if my life was headed for a fall
Then I heard a gentle voice
Saying “Son you have a choice.
You can walk away or answer to my call.”
 
I had never thought I’d leave my precious Savior
But it seemed my life was spinning out of place
I was walking really slow
Then my legs began to bow
Soon I found that I had fallen on my face
 
I’m not sure how I got down on my knees
But I knew the Lord would hear my heartfelt pleas
I lifted up my voice
And I started to rejoice
For all the mercy He had shown to me
 
It was not uncommon that He’d speak to me
I heard His voice most every single day
And I always have a choice
To heard His gentle voice
Or to walk into the wilderness my way
 
I slowly raised myself up off the ground
Decided I would quickly turn around
I headed back to Him
From the place that I had been
To find the place where love and peace abound

Will You?

Will you walk with me today?
Will you talk with me today?
Will you listen and hear the words I will speak?
Will you spend just a moment with me?
 
Will you pray for a friend today?
Will you help out a stranger in need?
Will you speak words of faith to a soul who’s in doubt?
Will you be what I want you to be?
 
I have given you this day
Every minute is a gift of grace
I pray you don’t waste it
But please make the most of it
Follow my will today
 
Will you walk in my way, not yours?
Will you speak my words, not yours?
Will you take all your thoughts captive to me?
Will you truly be set free?
 
Every breath you breathe is from me
Everything you see is from me
Make the most of this day by being a friend
Finding and meeting their needs
 
I truly believe that every day God gives us opportunity to minister to someone, and often we don’t recognize that opening when it comes.  When a person starts talking to you and tells you that there is a problem in their life, do you take time right then and there to pray?  I have a habit of saying that I will pray for them ,but don’t always take the time to pray while I am with them.  While Jesus was on this earth, the bible is very clear that He prayed for everyone that came to Him, and they were all healed.  Now, I am obviously not Jesus, but I believe if I walked in this kind of faith, more people would see the healing power of God.  Not because I am praying, but because I extended faith to them so they could believe.
 
The most precious gift we have is our time!  We must utilize it more for Him and less for ourselves.  We all have daily tasks that take up precious minutes in our day.  But taking a minute or two to pray with someone at the time we are with them should be a  flexibility we will have.  May we all take this precious gift and share it with others.  We can change the world one person at a time!
 
James 5:16b King James Version
The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Your Gentle Voice

I’ve come to listen, Lord, to hear you speak
For your truth is what I seek

I long to hear your gentle voice
Come to me now and I’ll rejoice

For you speak life into my soul
You speak hope and make me whole

You speak wisdom so I might learn
You speak glory for which I yearn

You speak peace to calm my storms
You speak joy/ My heart you warm

Lord give me life today I ask
To hear your voice is my only task

Whisper

I heard a voice so softly whisper in my ear
I’m not sure who is speaking. My waking time is near
I roll myself back over and try to go to sleep
The voice returns once more and I ask the voice to speak

My child I want to tell you how much I love you so
How much I want to bless you. More than you could know
I wish to give you blessings to help your faith to grow
So you can spread the message of my love to all below

I rose up out of bed and I put on my shoes
I opened up the curtains. The sunlight filled the room
I went right to my easy chair and began to sing a tune
My spirit sought to praise Him, My worship filled the room

I am so glad you love me. I am so glad you do
I lift my hands in worship and send my love to you
All of my adoration. With every one of praise
I worship you sweet Jesus. I thank you for your grace

I love the story of Elijah. He bursts on the scene out of nowhere, walks into the King’s palace and announces it won’t rain for three years and then walks out. I’m not sure how he got in or how he got out. It was not easy to get to see the king in those days and when you announce something as drastic as a three year drought, I don’t see how the king did not hold him for a bit to find out who he was. Nevertheless, it took a lot of courage to do what Elijah did,

But Elijah did not always have courage. He also got discouraged. After defeating all the servants of Ball, he ran from Jezebel man actually wanted to die. God led him to the side of a mountain and as he was standing there he saw strong wind, an earthquake and fire, but God was not in any of them. He was in the still small voice that spoke to him and encouraged him to keep going.

If a mighty prophet like Elijah can get discouraged, so can we. But in those times, if we listen for that still, small voice we will hear it. God is always talking to us.

2 Chronicles 20:15 King James Version (KJV)
15 And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

 

Everywhere

I can see Him
in the brilliance of the sunrise
in the gilded skies at dawn
in the colors of the rainbow
in the evenings glorious yawn
I can see Him in the stars above
I can see Him in the bird that fly
I can see Him in the leaves that fall
I can see Him everywhere

I can feel Him
in the gentle breeze of spring bring
in the stream that gently flows
in the warmth of summer sun
in the cold of winter snow
I can feel Him in the rain that falls
I can feel Him in the birds that fly
I can feel Him in the still and calm
I can feel Him everywhere

I can hear Him
in the thunder from the storm
in the cooing of a dove
in the howl of the Wolf
in the stillness of His love
I can hear Him when I still myself
I can hear Him when I’m restless
I can hear Him in my sorrow that
I can hear Him everywhere

I can touch Him
in the questions of my prayers
n the times I speak His name
in the showers of His grace
in the words uttered in faith
I can touch Him every moment
I can touch Him in my troubles
I can touch Him when I’m lonely
I can touch Him anytime

I can feel His presence everywhere
He’s given me these senses so I could know He’s there
I use them every day
To guide me on my way
Let my mouth declare
My eyes behold
My ears be witness
My Spirit touch
The Glory of the Lord
It’s everywhere

He Comes Whispering

The business of life has got me down
I try to hear His voice but not a sound
Oh Lord please hear my plea
Come and speak to me
I need to hear your words clear and loud

Then all the world seems bent to swallow me
So bring myself to get down on my knees
Oh Lord I cannot bear
To be alone down here
Come and fill me once again I plead

He comes whispering
Not a loud and roaring cry
He comes whispering
Soft and gently He comes by
If I do not still my mind
I will miss this blessed time
When the Lord of all the earth
Comes whispering

The tears begin to well up in my eyes
As I know the Lord has come to hear my cry
He is faithful He is true
He will also come to you
Just be still and listen as he passes by

When He comes whispering
You must listen and be still
He comes whispering
This is no time to be filled
Empty out your heart and soul
Let Him fill you be made whole
When the Lord of all the earth
Comes whispering

I Listen

Silently
I wait for thee
In the morning
Before dawning
Stars aglow
Snow below
Air is cold
Wind is bold
I listen

Heart for you
Thoughts anew
Your voice I hear
In my ear
Silently
Quietly
You speak to me
These words of life
And sacrifice
I listen

Thank you Lord
For your words
For these psalms
That bring calm
Silently
Gracefully
You speak to me
Words that seek
To set us free
That we might be
Found in thee
Help me Lord
To listen
