On Christ Alone I Stand

Faith rises up within me
As on His word I stand
There is no greater mercy
Than Jesus Christ commands
My surgery behind me
My healing quickly comes
I stand upon His promise
My victory is won

On Christ alone I stand
I’m healed by His great hand
There is no greater plan
On Christ alone I stand

I had hernia surgery two days ago. It was quite a thing to go through. I had no fear, no trepidation, as I knew it had to be done. I was so calm that my heart rate was down around 50 and my body temp was at 96. The nurse asked if that was normal and I said no, but I am calm, cool and collected about having this surgery. The nurse laughed and my wife gave me that look that only a loving wife can concern over the pain that would accompany my recovery, as they said they would give me hydrocodone for the pain, and I knew they didn’t prescribe that very often. But I was ready. The surgery went smoothly and I awoke in the recovery room slowly. When they tried to get me up on my feet, my right leg just gave way like rubber due to the local anesthetic they used. It took a little bit to get me walking. An hour later we came home.

Recovery has been aided greatly by my granddaughter being here to care for me. The hospital called yesterday to see how I was doing. They were so pleased that was walking around without any help, there was no swelling or bruising, no pain when just sitting or walking. There was a sharp ten pain when getting up, and about a five getting down again. But that is survivable. I am thankful for all those who have been praying for me. Jesus Christ is my healer and He is doing a swift job of it. By faith I will be better than ever in a few more days (maybe weeks, but I accept His timetable). In Christ alone I stand!

Isaiah 53:5 New International Version (NIV)
5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.

I Have No Doubt

I have no doubt He loves me
Despite what I have done
He washes all my failures
Forgives them, every one

I have no doubt He’ll heal me
When sickness comes my way
If I should come up fragile
He’ll make me new each day

I have no doubt He saved me
He washed my sins away
He shed His blood in my place
And took away my shame

I have no doubt He’s with me
He’s walking by my side
When I need to be counselled
He hears my every cry

I have no doubt He hears me
When I kneel down to pray
His ear is inclined to me
Every single day

I have no doubt He’s coming
Real soon to take me home
Until then I’ll be faithful
My heart will never roam

There was a time that I was far away from God.  I was a wild child, full of mischief and always looking for the next party,  I had no desire to  serve God because I was having way to much fun.  I put my trust in the things of this earth and what I could see and hear and touch.  Those were my gods you might say.  Those were my comfort and my companions.  I didn’t think there was any purpose in serving God or even knowing Him.
I thought I had life all figured out.

Then He decided to let me know where I was headed.  He came to me suddenly and caught me in His loving arms.  I felt the warmth of His love and did not want to be without it.  I asked Him to forgive my wayward ways and to save me from that place that was never intended for me.  He did.  He did that and so much more.  Now I know who He is and who I am.  I am learning more each day about His love for me and what he did for me on that cross.  I know I will never leave Him and he will never leave me.  There is no doubt we have found each other.  And I am so glad.

Ephesians 2:8 King James Version (KJV)
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Praise and Worship

At Your Name

At your name the lame man walked
At your name the dumb man talked
At your name many were shocked
At your name
Your mighty name

At your name demons shall flee
At your name I’ve been set free
At your name I am redeemed
At your name
Your mighty name

CHORUS
All of heaven. All of earth
All creation shouts your worth
Let me lift my hands in Praise
Jesus Savior, at your name

At your name I am healed
At your name truth revealed
At your name love is real
At your name
Your mighty name

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Light of the world
My creator
Savior to all
My redeemer
Coming again
To take me home
Jesus Savior
I am yours

CHORUS

The Believers Life

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

God's Provision

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

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
He overcome the world for me

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!
