No Matter What

I will praise you
No matter what
The storm may come
Lightning may flash
Thunder may roll
Flooding rains may sweep in
These may depict
A trial in my life
Where all seems lost
Where life seems bad
Yet I will praise you

I will praise you
No matter what
Illness may come
To weaken me
A deadly cancer
Chemotherapy
Neuropathy affects every move
Fatigue is always present
In the midst of it all
At the lowest of times
I will praise you

I will praise you
No matter what
When finances falter
Bills can’t get paid
There seems no relief
Worry sets in
Doubts of your provision
Wonder if we will make it through
Will the creditors sue
Will it only get worse
In the midst of it all
Yet I will praise you

You Oh God are my source and strength
My stronghold in the midst of the storm
My healer when sickness comes
My provider when I see no way out
My strong and mighty tower
My deliverer and counselor
You are always there
By my side
So no matter what
I will praise you

More Than Able

Oh Lord, My God
I worship you because you are more than able
When my finances run dry,
My cupboards are bear,
And the bills are due
You are more than able to provide
In some way things will get taken care of
You will send someone
Or simply have someone mail a check
Or wire help to me
Because you love me
And I have followed your way

When I am sick
My body in pain
No energy to do daily tasks
You are more than able to heal me
Give me strength again
Take away all the pain
Whether through doctors or a miracle
I know it’s your hand that heals me
Because you love me
And I have followed your way

When the enemy comes in
And torments my mind
Luring me away from your word
Away from your way
Enticing me with his words of pleasure
And earthly treasures
You are more than able to deliver me
Keep me safe
Guide me back to your path
So I will again hear your voice
And run from the enemy
Because you love me
And I have followed your way

When I am alone
My friends have turned their backs on me
They speak evil of me
They only want me out of their lives
Not from anything I have done
Except kept your word
And shared your love
You are more than able
To comfort me
And walk with me through the hard times
You protect me from slander
And bring me close to your side
Because you love me
And I have followed your way

When I have sinned
And done what was not right in your eyes
I feel overwhelmed with grief
Because it hurts you
When I stray from the truth
I feel distant from you
I fall on my knees
Repent
And ask you to forgive me
You are more than able
And more than willing
To forgive me
To wash me white as snow
To remove my sin
As far as the East is from the West
Because you love me
And I have followed your way

Oh Lord My God
I worship you because you are more than able
In every storm
In every trial
In every sickness
In every heartache
In every need
In every mess up I may have
You are there
You are more than able to bring me back
To your side

Keeping me warm
I am safe in Jesus arms

 

Let Your Prayer be Heard

I pray today that you be healed
Of sickness you may carry
Take up your bed
By God be led
Don’t let this sickness tarry

I pray today that you be free
Of finance that does bind you
Ask wisdom from
The Lord above
He’ll tell you what to do

God does authorize our prayers
Over all the power of the enemy
Nothing can stand against His word
He overcome the world for me

I pray today that you be free
Of sins that haunt your life
He died that day
On Calvary
Accept His sacrifice

I pray today that faith will rise
Within your new creation mind
And you will know
He loves you so
And will for all of time

No matter what your prayer may be
He authorizes you to speak
To quench the power of the enemy
So let your prayer be heard

God does authorize our prayers
Over all the power of the enemy
Nothing can stand against His word

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.
