What An Awesome God I Serve

I’ve had days when I was weary and days when I was sad
Days when I was healthy and days when I was glad
In all my days I realized one very simple truth
Gods goodness always overwhelmed my trials

What an awesome God I serve
Always there to meet my need
I will sing His praise
Worship Him always
What an awesome God I serve

I’ve had days when I was sick and days when I was down
Days when I was healthy and days I walked alone
But one truth stood for sure through every single hour
God helped me through each moment by His power

What an awesome God I serve
Always there to meet my need
I will sing His praise
Worship Him always
What an awesome God I serve

In my weakness He gives strength
In my struggles He gives hope
In my loneliness He comes and talks with me
In my sickness He brings health
In my sorrow He bring joy
In my weariness He restores my seeking soul

What an awesome God I serve
Always there to meet my need
I will sing His praise
Worship Him always
What an awesome God I serve

Our Emmanuel 

I cannot tell thee whence it came
This peace within my soul
When cancer reared it’s ugly head
He’s all I chose to know
When days were tough and weakness reigned
And I was feeling low
His calm assurance rescued me
From satan’s vengeful blow

I stand in His unfailing love
I look to see His face
For He has been so good to me
He showered me with grace
In all the days since illness struck
His merciful embrace
Has held me closely to His side
He’s worthy of my praise

Lift His name
His matchless name
Jesus Lamb of God
King of Kings, Lord of Lords
Our Emmanuel

When I have gained the victory
And stand whole once again
I know I’ll owe it all to Him
My Savior and my friend
I’ll lift my voice up louder still
To reace the God of heav’n
Hosanna, praise His mighty name
Jesus Christ the Lamb

Lift His name
His matchless name
Jesus Lamb of God
King of Kings, Lord of Lords
Our Emmanuel

It Moves!

I never before have announced
Something special in one of my rhymes
But today I am breaking tradition
‘Cause I want to announce this on time

I’m pleased to let all of you know
This bad shoulder I’ve had for a year
Has now started to move on it’s own
In response to all who gave prayer

So I thank you with all my heart
For the prayers you have said for me
This cancer will certainly pass
Since we all have the faith to believe

 

In response to the daily prompt Pleased

Your Reward

 

When Jesus walked
On this old ground
He came across people in need
The word says whoever
Came to Him sick
Would find that His touch would heal

Leprosy, blindness
Lame or disabled
All of them walked away free
Deaf ears and dumb mouth
All the diseases
Just by His touch they would leave

If you need a touch
From Jesus today
Simply trust Him as Savior and Lord
He’ll bring in His spirit
And transform your heart
And healing will be your reward

 

In response to the daily prompt Heal

In The Midst

I’m tired of being tired
I’m sick of being sick
I’ll lift the name of Jesus in a song
But while I sit here waiting
For good health to return
I’ll lift the name of Jesus in a song

You wonder why I praise Him
When things are not so right
When He allowed this sickness in my life
The answer is so simple
It’s not hard to understand
When you think of all He’s done for me through time

He has loved me
He has saved me
He has healed me
He will raise me
He removed my sin and promised me new life
He delivered me
He’s been merciful to me
I will praise Him every day of my life

Now even when I suffer
When my life seems out of place
I do not forget what he has done for me
In the midst of any trial
I can raise my voice and sing
Hallelujah to my soon and coming King

His promises are true
His love is everlasting
His grace will cover all my foolishness
His mercy never fails me
His peace is inn my heart
His joy unspeakable flows endlessly

He has loved me
He has saved me
He has healed me
He will raise me
He removed my sin and promised me new life
He delivered me
He’s been merciful to me
I will praise Him every day of my life

Sheltering Wing

I look to the Lord for answers
When questions are all that I have
I look to the Lord for direction
When may path has taken a curve

I look to the Lord for healing
When my health has been not so good
I look to the Lord for wisdom
When I know I’ve been misunderstood

He says peace
Come into me and find peace
All that you look for you’ll find
Under my sheltering wing
Peace
Don’t let your worry arise
Tomorrow is in my hand
Grace will always apply
And bring peace

I look to the Lord for patience
When the answers are taking to long
I look to the Lord for His strength
When all of my strength is gone

I look to the Lord for provision
When there seems to be lack in my house
I look to the Lord for all my needs
For He is my ultimate source

He is always right there
Giving ear to my prayer
He inclines to me each time I speak
His answers will come
When His timing is done
He will bring me the needs that I seek

Until then
He says peace
Come into me and find peace
All that you look for you’ll find
Under my sheltering wing
Peace
Don’t let your worry arise
Tomorrow is in my hand
Grace will always apply
And bring peace

Always

I asked the Lord to bless me
He said I always do
I asked Him if He’d heal me
He said it’s done for you
I asked the Lord to give me peace
He said I left it long ago
I asked Him to fill me with joy
He said it always flows
Always He is there
Always taking care
Meeting every need
Doing righteous deeds
Building up my faith
Answers never late
He is always there for me
I asked the Lord to build my faith
He said to read His word
I asked Him for a hope that lasts
He said I could be sure
Whatever thing I asked of Him
He said it’s been supplied
All things were given on that day
When Christ was crucified
There’s no more sacrifice for sin
The work has all be done
Now I just have to live the word
And victory is mine
Always He is there
Always taking care
Meeting every need
Doing righteous deeds
Building up my faith
Answers never late
He is always there for me

Every Single Time

When I am down and feeling blue
I lift my eyes and look to you
Because I know you’ll see me through
Every single time

When I am sick or feeling pain
I look to you, Lord, yet again
Because I know your healing came
Every single time

Your mercy is remarkable
Your grace is ever free
I never will quite understand
The love you have for me

When I’m alone and feeling down
I look to you before I drown
Then you bring me to higher ground
Every single time

No eye can see
No tongue can tell
The greatness of your love
No one can start
To count the times
You’ve touched them from above

Your mercy is remarkable
Your grace is ever free
I never will quite understand
The love you have for me

If You Could, Would You?

If you could walk up to a bind man
And pray that he would see
Then watch as his eyes opened
Would you?

If you could touch a deafened ear
And proclaim that he could hear
And watch as he rejoiced
Would you?

If you could look up at a storm cloud
And ask it to change course
Then watch as blue skies opened
Would you?

If you could see the homeless hurting
And give them food to eat
Then watch as they gained favor
Would you?

Well, you can
In Jesus mighty name
You can
All these things are possible
With faith
Step out of your comfort zone
And pray
That they be saved
And healed today

If your finances were hurting
Your desire was to give
To a needy missionary
Would you?

If someone asked for prayer
When you met them on a street
And you said you’d pray for them
Would you?

If a friend offended you
Very deeply in your heart
And asked you to forgive
Would you?

Well, you should
Trusting God each moment
You should
All these things are needful
For your peace
Don’t delay one moment
Follow through
So that God will bless you
And bless those around you
With His love

Completely Whole

I hear His midnight call to me
In His quiet gentle voice
Saying do not doubt these words of mine
Will cause you to rejoice

Healing will soon come to you
It’s slow but very sure
You’ll see improvement every day
Until you know your cured

There’s nothing that will keep you back
From this reality
I paid the price for healing
On the cross that fateful day

So walk in faith and lift your praise
And you will be made whole
Remember ten who I had touched
Just one gave thanks it’s told

And that one walked away brand new
No pain or scars remained
The other nine still bore their scars
From thanks they did refrain

But you my son have lifted praise
And thanks to me each day
So you will be completely whole
For you did trust my grace

With that His words were finished
And I broke down and wept
Tears of joy rolled down my cheeks
His praise I’d always kept

I knew He had the best for me
Of this there was no doubt
That is why in all our trials
It’s time to sing and shout

Sing His praise and shout with thanks
When hard imes hit your life
Sing hosanna worship Him
His healing comes in time

He hears your prayers and all your needs
He keeps His promises
Be the one who brings back thanks
Healing was soon his
