Walking with Jesus

I have walked many places in my life
In the valleys and the mountains and the woods
I have seen many sights
I have taken many flights
And through all of it my life has been quite good

Walking through childhood was fun and games
Walking through the teens i was bored
Then i walked through drugs
And booze and many lusts
Before I started walking with the Lord

There’s nothing like walking with Jesus
He guides me through every mistake
And when I go astray
He helps find my way
He’ll carry me if that’s what it takes

Walking with my Lord brings peace and joy
Walking with my Lord brings hope
He brings me new life
Through His great sacrifice
His love is walking with me as I go

There’s nothing like walking with Jesus
He guides me through every mistake
And when I go astray
He helps find my way
He’ll carry me if that’s what it takes

 

Refine Your Plans

It used to be in days of old
That miners would assess their gold
By biting in and taking hold
To see how soft it was

Then men developed great techniques
To check the gold for strength and weak
When the assay was done they’d speak
To tell what they had found

We all are like gold in God’s hands
He tests us and refines our plans
To make the most of every man
By taking out the bad

So give your life to Him today
Let Him be your guide every day
He’ll lead you in His golden ways
Because He loves you so

 

In response to the daily prompt Assay

He Gives Relief

He’s leading me
Through waters deep
Up mountains steep
His way I’ll keep
He’s leading me

He speaks to me
In still of night
With words of light
Keeps me upright
He speaks to me

Jesus Savior
My Messiah
Always by my side
Jesus, soon and coming King
In Him I abide

He’s here with me
When I am down
He makes no sound
But He’s around
He’s here with me

He comforts me
In times of grief
When joy seems brief
He gives relief
He comforts me

And when the road is hardest
When all hope seems to go
I know that He will see me through
Because He loves me so

Jesus Savior
My Messiah
Always by my side
Jesus, soon and coming King
In Him I abide

Lead Me

I rarely can see where He’s leading

I often must simply obey

My walk is by faith

As I quietly wait

While He leads my along the way

His plan will unfold before me

The road always turns for my good 

No matter the test

My soul can find rest

When I know that He’ll carry me through

Lead me, Lord, lead me today

I’ll follow you through the fire

Lead me by your Holy Spirit 

Your will is my desire

You always know my limitations 

You stretch my faith further each day

I know I’ll come through

When I trust in you

As I quietly learn to obey

No test too hard

No trial to big

No turn to sharp 

No time to think

Simply by faith

You’ll bring me through

As long as my faith remains

Lead me, Lord, lead me today

I’ll follow you through the fire

Lead me by your Holy Spirit 

Your will is my desire

I Chose Jesus

When I was young I made a lot of choices
Some good, some bad and some fell in between
I really didn’t know
Which way that I should go
I wandered through my life quite aimlessly

Through drugs and alcohol my journey took me
Wild women and a lot of lonely nights
I couldn’t find my way
Sank lower every day
Until I couldn’t see the dark from light

Then an old friend invited me to visit
Across the country travelling I went
It’s then I met his friend
On whom he did depend
I made a choice that’s been mine ever since

I chose Jesus
From a missionaries’ words
I chose Jesus
He convinced me I was lost
I chose Jesus
I had no desire to live my life that way
I chose Jesus
He has filled me with His love
I chose Jesus
His sweet spirit leads the way
I chose Jesus
Now I choose Him each and every day

Now I have a wife and family beside me
Many friends encourage me along the way
With Jesus as my choice
He is my inner voice
I strive to take in very word He says

I choose Jesus
As the one that I will love
I choose Jesus
He will guide me from above
I choose Jesus
I will follow Him wherever He may lead
I choose Jesus
Won’t you come along with me
I choose Jesus
Make Him the one you seek
I choose Jesus
He will fill all your desires and your needs

Dear Jesus

Dear Jesus I need you
More each day
I promise I will cling to
Your holy way

Dear Jesus I love you
More each day
You always watch over me
You hear me pray

Precious are you Lord
Precious to me
Giving your grace
Abundantly

Precious are you Lord
Precious each day
You are my Refuge
Fortress and stay

Dear Jesus please help me
Through all these tests
Show me the pathway
To just have your best

Dear Jesus hold me
In your loving arms
Settle my spirit
Please keep me calm

Precious are you Lord
Precious and kind
You walk beside me
Soothing my mind

Precious are you Lord
Words can’t describe
How much I love you
I’m glad you are mine

Entangled In You

I Him I live
He is my source
He provides all that I need
Strength in my weakness
Joy in my sorrow
Faith in my times of doubt
Peace in the storms
Truth when I worry
All of my fears He removes with His love
He is my source of life

In Him I move
He has the plan
That will bring me a glorious end
Answers to questions
Guidance each day
His Spirit leads me to the truth
Holding my hand
Carrying me
When the steps are too hard to take
I only move when He moves

I have my being
Only in Christ
Grace that’s Amazing
Mercy that’s free
He paid the price on the cross
Poured out His spirit
Setting me free
I owe Him my life for eternity
I only will be where He is

My glorious Savior
My wonderful Lord
My life is entangled in you
There’s no place on earth
That I’d rather be
Than safe in your loving arms

In you I live and move
And have my being
You are my Heavenly Father
All I desire
You have provided
Your child I will always be

I Can’t Begin

I can’t begin to say how much I love Him
The one who came from high in heaven above
He gave His life for me
When He died upon that tree
I’m a demonstration of His awesome love

I cant begin to say how much He helps me
As I go about my business day to day
He guides me as I go
Gently leading me to know
The plan He has for me when I obey

Merciful Savior
So good to me
I lift my praise to you
Honor and power
Glory forever
Unto your name is due

I can’t begin to know how much He loves me
His grace has covered all my sin and shame
He is the King of Kings
Yet He gives me everything
I lift my hands to worship His sweet name

Merciful Savior
So good to me
I lift my praise to you
Honor and power
Glory forever
Unto your name is due

My words of praise are lifted to you
High upon the throne
My voice declares your majesty
I worship you alone

Merciful Savior
So good to me
I lift my praise to you
Honor and power
Glory forever
Unto your name is due
