Mercy Meant for Me

I looked to the Lord for healing
My body racked in pain
I knew He would not fail me
He’d healed me again and again

I looked to Him for deliverance
From the guilt stains of past sins
He offered me His salvation
Then delivered me deep within

All of it is mercy
God’s mercy abundant and free
Everything I’m blessed with
Is mercy meant for me

I looked to the Lord for patience
To walk through the trials of life
He said I will always be with you
I’ll give you the strength to survive

I knew then that all would be wonderful
As I looked to the Lord for life
I bowed down and thanked Him for mercy
Abundant and free He supplies

All of it is mercy
God’s mercy abundant and free
Everything I’m blessed with
Is mercy meant for me

What An Awesome Feeling

By faith I claim my healing
From cancer’s ugly snare
Not one small symptom will remain
Good health beyond compare

By faith I am delivered
From such a dread disease
There is no power on earth that lasts
When Jesus sends His peace

What a righteous Savior
Redeemer friend indeed
That by His grace He saved me
Supplied my every need
What an awesome feeling
What a gracious God
That He would give this faith to me
Then bask me in His love

By faith I’ll share my story
So others will gain hope
The Word of God goes forth to bring
An anchor to their soul

By faith I’ll stand before Him
Once again made whole
No power on earth can keep me from
The healing He will show

What a righteous Savior
Redeemer friend indeed
That by His grace He saved me
Supplied my every need
What an awesome feeling
What a gracious God
That He would give this faith to me
Then bask me in His love

I’ll walk by faith in God above
I’ll claim His Word more than enough
I’ll stay within His loving arms
I’ll praise His name with heaven’s song
I’ll count on His unfailing help
I’ll worship God above all else
I’ll lift Him up for all to see
How much my Savior loves me

What an awesome feeling
What a gracious God
That He would give this faith to me
Then bask me in His love
Then bask me in His love

Cancer Testimony Video

Several of you have asked for me to post this video, so here it is.  This is from our service at church Sunday night, April 22.  This service went well and we had an opportunity tom pray for several who were sick at the end of the service.  It was a blessed time in the Lord.

I am going to post this on both of my blogs, so if you are following both, you will see this on my God’s Maintenance Man blog as well.

I pray it blesses you!

Words of Love

His name will move all my mountains
His name will heal all my pain
His name will bring strength and courage
His name gives me joy again

His name is my rock and refuge
His name is my fortress strong
His name always brings me mercy
His name fills my soul with songs

To worship Him is what I long for
My heart cries to give Him praise
Hands uplifted toward the throne room
Words of love for Jesus name

His name has removed my sin stains
His name has forgiven me
His name rose to gain the victory
His name spoken sets me free

Oh the mighty name of Jesus
Jesus, Jesus Lord of life
I will sing the name if Jesus
All the day and all the night

To worship Him is what I long for
My heart cries to give Him praise
Hands uplifted toward the throne room
Words of love for Jesus name

Turn to Jesus

If you’re struggling today
And you don’t know where to turn
Turn to Jesus

If you’re lost along the way
And it’s hard to understand
Turn to Jesus

He will guide you and protect you
He will light your way
He will set your feet on solid ground
If you’re wandering through life
And you think there’s no return
Turn to Jesus

If you’re sick and in despair
And you have no place to go
Turn to Jesus

If it seems your life’s a wreck
And you just can’t get it right
Turn to Jesus

He will heal your broken body
He’ll restore you’re wounded heart
He will make you feel brand new again
If you’re wandering through life
And you think there’s no return
Turn to Jesus

He is the way when there is no way
He is the truth when you doubt
He is the light when the darkness comes
He is the only way out

If you’re looking for the answer
To the questions in your life
If you’re ready to surrender
All your sin and shame and strife
If your heart is truly broken
If your words are faintly spoken
If you have just one last prayer
Turn to Jesus

I Waited on the Lord

The flood waters were rising against me and I cried into the Lord for help
They would not cease
Their volume was more than I could fathom
Covering my ankles
Then my knees
Up to my waist
I considered putting my finger in the leak
And solving it myself
But I waited on the Lord and He came
He turned the water into blessing
And it overwhelmed me
Oh how good and how merciful is our God
He makes our trouble into our testimony
As He delivers us from them all
My finances were dwindling and I cried into the Lord for help
Money was tight and food was scarce
The winter was closing in and the storehouse was bare
My belly was empty
My hunger was growing
I considered taking food from a neighbor unawares
Just to survive
But I waited on the Lord and He came with manna from heaven
Through men He brought food to fill my cupboard
It overflowed from that day forward
Oh how good and merciful is my God
He will not suffer His children to go hungry
But will fill them with honey and milk
From His vast storehouse
I was sick and fever racked my bones so I cried into the Lord to heal me
My belly groaned with cramps that would not cease
If I ate the food would not stay put
Nourishment did not sound soothing at all
Chills and sweats abounded
Headache wad unceasing
I considered just giving up as death sounded like sure relief
But I waited on the Lord and He healed me
He made the fever to go out of me
The sweats finally covered my bed clothes
My strength was restored and my appetite wad renewed
Oh how good and how merciful is my God
He does not leave me sick unto death
His living arms wrap around me in my hurting
And He takes it from me every time
I was down and feeling sad and lonely so I cried unto the Lord
The sorrow on my heart was worsening
My soul grieved out of my loneliness
As I idly sat in my house
No one there to commune with
No one calling or stopping by
Not able to go outside
I despaired for me life
But I waited on the Lord and He came in like a flood
He brought His peace and His joy and filled my heart
His love surrounded me wo beautifully
Ob how good and how merciful is our God
He comes when I call
He rescues me from all my despair
He loves me with an everlasting love
Thus I will praise His name
I will lift up my voice to the heavens
And exalt the name of the Lord my God
Because He is good and His mercy endures forever.

Fixer-Upper

When I was lost He found me
Set me on the narrow path
I could not find my way without Him
When I was sick He healed me
Gave me strength to rise from bed
My body healed without and within

When I was lonely He sat with me
Let me know that he was near
Oh what a comfort He is when by my side
When I was afraid He calmed me
Whispered peace into my ear
Now in His daily presence I can hide

The Lord is my fixer-upper
He makes me new each day
I’ll trust in Him
I’ll always win
As long as I follow His way

When I was broken He fixed me
Put me back together again
I’m a new creature whole and alive in Him
When I was in bondage He freed me
Paid the price to redeem me from sin
I owe my life to my Lord so I give it to Him

The Lord is my fixer-upper
He makes me new each day
I’ll trust in Him
I’ll always win
As long as I follow His way

In sorrow or in pain
In sunshine or rain
In doubt or in faith
In loss or in gain
He always is near
To ease me from fear
I trust in His holy name

The Lord is my fixer-upper
He makes me new each day
I’ll trust in Him
I’ll always win
As long as I follow His way

The Humble Heart

I saw the angels gather
By the throne of God
Before the sun had dawned one cloudy day
I strained to hear them talking
And then the angels said
Lord, how can we go bless someone today

God smiled and nodded slowly
That question pleased Him so
He rose up from His throne and all got still
His voice then filled the heaven’s
I could hear the words He said
I’ll write them here so you can know His will

Bring peace to those that fear
Bring joy to those that weep
Bring hope to all who think their life is bleak
Bring healing to the sick
Deliverance to the bound
Bring strength to all who tremble and are weak

Give sight to all the blind
Give hearing to the deaf
Give words to those whose tongues have never talked
Wisdom to the seekers
Knowledge to the teachers
Give strength to all the lame who’ve never walked

The angels listened closely
As the master spoke these words
They sang hallelujah when He sat back down
Then one spoke up for all of them
Lord we gladly will do all
Just tell us which ones need which blessing now

God leaned over to the angels
I will not forget His words
Just listen to their prayers was His reply
Give ear to intercessors
As they lift up their requests
Fulfill the cries of those with humble hearts

The angels then retreated
They headed down to earth
One question filled my heart and mind day
When I lift up my voice
In petition to the Lord
Is it with a humble heart that I pray

Will You Be Jesus To Me

I am the man on the street
Watching His life go by
I lost my job
My wife and kids
I just cannot figure out why

So I sit day by day in the gutter
Looking for some food to eat
A handout would help
As I beg for bread
A touch from the Master I need

Will you be Jesus to me
Will you help me today
Help me find my way
Could you be Jesus to me?
I need some help
I can’t find my way
I need His touch today

I am a woman who’s lost
I was thrown out of my house
My money is gone
I’m broken and bruised
I was abandoned by my spouse

The street has been cruel to me
I have sold myself for bread
So many bad men
Have treated me mean
I need God’s touch instead

Will you be Jesus to me
Will you help me today
Help me find my way
Could you be Jesus to me?
I need some help
I can’t find my way
I need His touch today

I watch as people walk by me each day
They shake their heads and just walk away
One touch from Jesus can ease all my pain
Are you a Christian? Do you know His name?

Will you be Jesus to me
Will you help me today
Help me find my way
Could you be Jesus to me?
I need some help
I can’t find my way
I need His touch today

His Healing Touch

Oh, what a glorious Savior we have
He touches in so many ways
Not just those in His day
But today
In my life
He gave His healing touch

He opened the eyes of the blind
By His touch and by His word
He opens my blind eyes
Letting His light
Show me His truth

He opened the ears of the deaf
They could finally hear the sounds
He opens my deaf ears
He asks me to listen
To His still, small voice

He loosened the tongue of the dumb
Finally they could speak
He tames my wayward tongue
He asks me to speak His truth
To all that I may see

He made the lame to walk
When they had been laid up long
He asks me to walk in the spirit
Not according to my flesh
To be a witness for Him

He cast out the demons of some
Freeing them from their chains
He delivers me from sin
Cleansing my soul
As I confess my wary ways

He removed the leper’s spots
Making them whole again
He cleans me from inside out
My mind is transformed
My spirit made whole

He raised the dead to life
Death had no hold on them
He quickens my soul to new life
A life that grows within
Working its way out

He wants to touch you too
To do all these things
In your life
Let Him give you
His healing touch
