Trusting Jesus Oh How Sweet

It’s so hard to describe it
This peace down in my soul
Whenever trouble comes my way
His peace will take control
There is no doubt or worry
There is no fear or dread
He gives me blessed assurance
That vict’ry is ahead

Once you understand this peace
Then joy is next in line
When all of life seems out of sorts
Abundant joy is mine
He fills my heart with singing
That new song that I love
His joy does overtake me
For I know that He has won

Trusting Jesus oh how sweet
His Spirit is to me
Trusting Jesus all the way
Gives life abundantly

Peace and joy are settled in
Now hope comes crashing through
I know my troubles are but brief
As blessings are produced
There is no hesitation
To face whatever comes
This hope will help me forge ahead
For He has overcome

Trusting Jesus oh how sweet
His Spirit is to me
Trusting Jesus all the way
Gives life abundantly

I’m resting in His mercy
I’m trusting in His grace
No trial can defeat me
His truth I do embrace
His peace is always present
His joy does fill my heart
And hope will bring me through
If from Him I don’t depart

Trusting Jesus oh how sweet
His Spirit is to me
Trusting Jesus all the way
Gives life abundantly

God Thinks of Me

Why should I ever worry
Why should I ever doubt
Why should I ever fear inside
When His thoughts are on me

Why should I fuss and fret
Why should I lose my peace
Why should my joy be down
When His mind is stayed on me

His thoughts are precious
Precious toward me
His thoughts are countless
Like sand by the sea
I cam not fathom
His love for me
His thoughts are precious
Precious to me

Why would my troubles throw me
Why would I oft feel lonely
Why would my hope escape me
When His precious thoughts touch me

Mercy abounding
Grace everlasting
Joy overflowing
Peace overwhelming
These are His thoughts
Precious toward me

His thoughts are precious
Precious toward me
His thoughts are countless
Like sand by the sea
I cam not fathom
His love for me
His thoughts are precious
Precious to me

The Voice of My Savior

There are days when my heart grows weary
I don’t feel I can carry on
The worries of life overtake me
I can feel so all alone

Then I hear the voice of my Savior
Speaking softly in my ear
Gentle words of His blessed assurance
That He is always near

He gives me peace when there is no peace
He gives me joy when there is no joy
He gives me hope when all hope is gone
He sends His love to comfort my soul

When there’s no rest
When I’m not my best
He gives me His all
Oh what a Savior
Oh what a friend

When I hear the voice of my Savior
I am lifted to higher ground
There’s no longer a need for anguish
His presence is in that sweet sound

I determine to spend my days seeking
His face and His will for me
In the hope that I’ll never grow weary again
In the quest for my destiny

He gives me peace when there is no peace
He gives me joy when there is no joy
He gives me hope when all hope is gone
He sends His love to comfort my soul

When there’s no rest
When I’m not my best
He gives me His all
Oh what a Savior
Oh what a friend

 

My Desire

This poem was written with inspiration from Scott’s blog this morning.  You can read it at  THIS ADDRESS

I used to desire riches
I thought they would satisfy
And though I gathered up many
My heart had a lonely cry

I used to desire pleasures
That took all my riches away
They made me feel good for a moment
Then pay for them dearly next day

I used to desire real power
So I could feel big and alive
But pride was what then resulted
I fell flat on my face and I cried

Then I learned of someone named Jesus
Who would fill the desires of my heart
I did not believe it was possible
But I needed a brand new start

I knelt down one day at the altar
I slowly looked up to the sky
Then I cried out to Him
Asking Him to come in
That day my life changed on the fly

My desire is now for just Jesus
He is all that I want or need
He fills me with love
His joy fills my cup
And to top it all off I have peace

If your soul is longing for more
And you never are satisfied
Just cry out to Him
Asking Him to come in
And you’ll suddenly feel alive

His Love Will Always Come Through

I sing of the mercy and the grace of Jesus
How He gives them freely and changes my life
My provider my protector my refuge and fortress
My shelter in storm and in darkness my light

I sing of His peace and His joy overflowing
How He gives me hope that fills up my soul
He calms all my doubts and takes worry away
His plan for my future will be evermore

But it’s His love His sweet love that I cherish
A love that is lasting and true
Even if I should fail
Or if I should fall
His love will always come through

I sing of the Spirit He gives me abundant
The Comforter sweet that’s always beside
He teaches me truth and leads me through trouble
In times of decision He is my guide

I can depend on all of these things
No matter what my come or go
His great faithfulness will be my comfort
Everywhere I go

But it’s His love His sweet love that I cherish
A love that is lasting and true
Even if I should fail
Or if I should fall
His love will always come through
Even if I should fail
Or if I should fall
His love will always come through

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

He’s Mine

If not for the Lord I’d still be in sin
No pardon for me the devil would win
I’d flounder through life and wish for retrieve
Then in the end hell my soul would receive

If not for the Lord no joy would be mine
My laughter would be empty echoes through time
Sorrow below in my merriest rhymes
I’d wind up with smiles my face would tell lies

But He’s mine, all mine
He redeemed me that day long ago
He’s mine, eternally mine
He is with me wherever I go

If not for the Lord all hope would be lost
I’d pay the price now an eternal cost
No future would hold anything prosperous
I’d flounder through life in a whirlwind of loss

If not for the Lord my peace would subside
I’d think I was calm but I’d tremble inside
When it seemed things were right only fear would reside
Only terror would fill up the thoughts of my mind

But He’s mine, all mine
He redeemed me that day long ago
He’s mine, eternally mine
He is with me wherever I go

I don’t have to worry
I don’t have to fret
I don’t need to have any doubt
When I asked Him to save me
He did it that day
And my life was turned about

Yes He’s mine, all mine
He redeemed me that day long ago
He’s mine, eternally mine
He is with me wherever I go

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

Escape The Rat Race

There’s a pattern this world likes to follow
Of hustle and bustle and fame
Go after riches and fortune
Live life and never be tame

I use a pattern that’s different
That seeks peace and joy, love and hope
Following Jesus is simpler
Then the pattern that makes this world cope

Why not step out and come with me
Escape the rat race as they say
Come to the Savior, He’s waiting
To change your life’s pattern today
