Before

Before I rise from sleep
Before the day begins
Before I take one step
I’m going to talk to Him

Before I think of work
Before I plan my day
Before I fix my hair
I’ll ask Him for His way

Jesus knows what this day brings
Before it even starts
If I will place my trust in Him
His peace will rule my heart
When trouble rears its ugly head
I will not lose my joy
Because my faith is anchored sure
He’ll go before the storm

Before my thoughts get full
Before my worries soar
Before my plans are set
I’ll look to His true Word

Before I take a sip
Before one bite goes down
Before my news is read
I’ll turn to His sweet sound

Jesus knows what this day brings
Before it even starts
If I will place my trust in Him
His peace will rule my heart
When trouble rears its ugly head
I will not lose my joy
Because my faith is anchored sure
He’ll go before the storm

He knows the plans He has for me
Plans for good to build my faith
Whatever comes what trials may fall
He knows before to guide my way

I Love God and He Loves Me

I love God.  He loves me
What a blessed life I lead
New each day is His mercy
I love God and He loves me.

I love God and keep His word
Knowing I must tell the world
Of this love that never fails
I love God and He loves me

He loves me His promise clear
He has promised to be near
And to listen to my prayer
He loves me His promise clear

I love God and do my best
To follow all His commandments
They’ll testify to all the rest
I love God and do my best

He loves me and gives His grace
All my sins He does erase
And one day I shall see His face
He loves me and gives His grace

I love God and trust in Him
No matter what this life may bring
When trials come my heart will sing
I love God and trust in Him

God loves me and lends His hand
Helps me find His loving plan
His spirit helps me understand
God loves me and lends Hs hand

I love God and God loves me
What a blessed life I lead
I pray you will know His peace
I love God and God loves you

Feeding Time

It seems it’s a natural occurrence
To eat and drink plenty each day
It’s something we do by instinct
To survive there’s no other way

But there is another part to us
That needs  to nourished as much
The spirit that lives within us
Is hungry to feel wisdom’s touch

Your body is well taken care of
Your spirit guides you in this world
Make sure that you feed your spirit
For me that means time in God’s word

Where Will You Gather?

Some people get caught up in things
Like soap operas and TV shows
Their lives revolve around a set
Of characters they think they know

Others are consumed by work
They toil all day and night it seems
Their goal is to achieve the top
But often they get caught in schemes

I prefer to immerse myself
In the Word of God, where life abounds
As I look through His words each day
I hear just joyful, peaceful sounds

To God I’ll gather ’round each day
For that is where I find my rest
If you need more from life today
Open the Word and find God’s best.

Tell It Like It Is

Some people trust in stars
To come and tell their fate
Others use a horoscope
I see if they should date

To others it’s a Ouija board
And others use a seance
I’ll just take God at His word
In Him there is no nuance

He always tells it like it is
The truth is always clear
You’ll be much better off each day
If His words you will hear
