I See

I see beauty all around me
I see life abundantly
I see healing for my weakness
In my storms I see His peace
I see hope for my tomorrows
I see love for all I meet
When I keep my eyes on Jesus
All I see is victory

I see joy within my sorrows
I see freedom for the bound
I see the lame man leaping
I see the lost are found
I see hearing for the deaf
I see all the blind can see
When I keep my eyes on Jesus
All I see us victory

There is nothing too hard
Nothing to small
Nothing escapes Him
God sees it all
His timing is perfect
His love is immense
When I look to Jesus
My faith will be blessed

I see rest when I’m weary
I see faith when I doubt
I see comfort when teary
Jesus makes a way out
I see oceans of mercy
I see mountains of grace
I see vict’ry abounding
When I look on His face

There is nothing too hard
Nothing to small
Nothing escapes Him
God sees it all
His timing is perfect
His love is immense
When I look to Jesus
My faith will be blessed

All But Tame

I Dream of Genie was a favorite show
For all my kids when on the grow
The laughed at how she folded arms
Providing good but sometimes harm

Aladdin was a movie name
The genie there was all but tame
He made us laugh and wish that we
Could have a genie just like he

But genie’s will not bring us peace
Joy and hope they can’t release
If you need these and also love
The place to look is God above

He may not fold His arms and blink
He may not work as you would think
But He will fill your life with good
More than a genie ever could

Trudging Along?

Many people go through life
Trudging from day to day
They don’t have a spring in their step
They are not quite sure of their way

The thing that there missing is easy
It’s a hope that is steadfast and sure
When we put all our trust in Jesus
That glimmer of hope is assured

In fact it’s no longer a glimmer
But a bright shining light up ahead
When Jesus is Lord and Savior
Then Heaven a bright light instead

So set your mind squarely on Jesus
Let Him be your guiding Light
No longer will life be just trudging
You’ll find it is sunny and bright

What A Merciful God

What a merciful God we serve

What amazing grace He gives me
Al His blessings divine
Are forever mine
What amazing grace He gives me

What abundant hope God has shared
I know heaven is mine
For He lives for all time
What abundant hope God has shared

What adoring love God reveals
What adoring love God reveals
Every promise I own
As He sits on the throne
What adoring love He has shown

This Chaotic World

I had tried to get much knowledge
I had tried to find true joy
I had tried to find real love
But it all was one big ploy

I was frantic to find something
That would make my life seem full
But emptiness was all I found
In this chaotic world

It was then I found my Savior
Actually, He came to me
He called my name out load
He said He’d set me free

No more would I lack comfort
Or peace, joy, hope or love
He would give them all to me
If I’d call to Him above

Ever since that day
I have lifted up my praise
To the one who called to me
And saved me by His grace

In response to the daily prompt Frantic

A Glorious Plan

I can’t always see
Where this road is lead
I can’t always know
What His grace will bestow
I can’t always understand
The way of His master plan
But I know all things work for my good

Whether sickness or pain or trial of faith
Whether heartache or sorrow or doubt for tomorrow
No matter what comes I know He’s right there
His hope is my refuge His grace is my stay

He has a plan that nothing can change
Full of blessings prepared just for me
As I walk by faith
In His mercy and grace

Unbroken

Unbroken peace
He gives to me
Amidst the storm
He calms the sea

Unbroken joy
In darkest night
From deep within
He’s my delight

Unbroken hope
In times of doubt
Whatever comes
He brings me out

Unbroken grace
That flows so free
When I fall down
He pardons me

Unbroken love
Will never fail
I may give up
But He prevails

Unbroken praise
To Christ my Lord
I’ll lift His name
Forevermore

Sunday Morning

Sunday morning
I feel fine
I’ve got Jesus on my mind

He’s a real
Friend of mine
He is with me all the time

Gives me joy
Peace of mind
Looks at me with love divine

Hope that keeps
For all time
Home in heaven will be mine

How I love Him so
Jesus Lamb of God
Pardoned all my sin
Wraps me in His arms
Loves me through my faults
Dries my every tear
Calms the storms of life
Calms my every fear

Heals my ills
Soothes my pain
Always near when I should call

Teaches me
Of His ways
Picks me up each time I fall

Urges me
To go on
Even when I’ve hit the wall

Precious thoughts
He has of me
Always keeps me standing tall

How I love Him so
Jesus Lamb of God
Pardoned all my sin
Wraps me in His arms
Loves me through my faults
Dries my every tear
Stills the storms of life
Calms my every fear

Sunday morning
I feel great
I will lift my hands in praise

Once Upon A Time

I once had sorrow then joy filled my heart
I once had troubles then peace stilled the storm
I once was doubtful then faith came along
My life is not what it once was

Once upon a time I was lost
Wondering if I would survive
Then Jesus came in
He took all my sin
Now I am free and alive

I once was bound up then hope brought me out
I once was fearful then love brought a shout
I once had weakness them He gave me strength
Now my life rests in Him

Once upon a time I was useless
Nothing of good came from me
Then Jesus did call
Now I give my all
To be what He made me to be

No more will I go drifting
No more will I live in fear
No more will I be doubting
Jesus is all I need

Once upon a time I was lost
Wondering if I would survive
Then Jesus came in
He took all my sin
Now I am free and alive

Once upon a time I was useless
Nothing of good came from me
Then Jesus did call
Now I give my all
To be what He made me to be
