The Only Way

I can’t imagine what I’d do without you
Your Spirit guides me every single day
Not a soul goes by that I don’t talk about you
For all must know that you’re the only way

CHORUS
The only way
The only way
Jesus you are the only way
Because one day
We’ll be swept away
All must know that you’re the only way

Lord, help to reveal my testimony
The story of my life can touch the heart
You brought me out of darkness into glory
You brought me out of sin into the light

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Now I must pray every day
I must witness to all who come my way
Jesus you receive my praise
Let my voice exalt your name

CHORUS

Come Light My Fire

All that I am is yours
All of my heart. All of my soul
All that I am is yours
Jesus you are my Lord

All that I want is you
All that my life requires
All that I want is you
Jesus, my heart’s desire

Come and fill my Spirit
With your amazing love
Come with your mercy
Come with your grace
Come light my fire
Come light my fire

I’ll worship you with all me heart
I’ll lift my hands and sing your praise
The hallelujahs ring out loud
I magnify your name
I magnify your name
I magnify your name
Jesus. Jesus

I need Him so desperately. It seems every day brings a new trial, a new test. There is seemingly no end that my enemy won’t stoop to in trying to lure me away from my only hope. The old song says “My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness.” This has always been true and it will always be true. God gave the hymn writer these words so that I might remember this truth. If I want my hope renewed, my spirit restored, my heart feeling loved and my soul satisfied then I need Jesus. I need Him every hour of every day. I need Him no matter where I go or where I do. I need Him leading and guiding me into the pastures he has for me. I know that wherever he leads me, good will come out of it. I don’t need to worry or fret. He is the one whom I must seek. He is my fortress and my stronghold.

Where do you stand today? Do you stand on the solid rock? Or are you stuck in the miry clay. Are you facing a fiery furnace or is there a sea blocking your path? Wherever you are in life right now, I promise He will hear you if you call out today. Make Him Lord of your life. Give Him complete control. Let Him light the fire within you that only He can light. Lift His name up high, and He will lift you as well.

Matthew 6:33 King James Version (KJV)
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Jesus More

More than all the riches this world can afford
More than all the power I can find
More than all the glory man may cast my way
I need Jesus more

More than all the wisdom I can yet attain
More than all the knowledge I could gain
More than all the things this world can offer me
I need Jesus more

He gives me life and hope
He gives me peace and joy
He gives me grace abundantly
He gives me pardon for my sin
He gives me life so deep within
There is nothing I would not give
To have Jesus more

There is so much I have to learn. So much I want to know. So much I can yet attain if I would just spend more time with Him. He is the source of all knowledge and wisdom, the source of all that I could ever want. It is not the riches or fame of this world that will satisfy the human soul. It is not attaining great fame that will bring me pleasure in this life. Many have walked that road and failed to accomplish the one thing that all desire – happiness and contentment. That is what the human soul longs for more than anything else. We try our drugs, alcohol, sinfulness, power grabs, riches attained and all those other worldly things but in the end they do not bring these two things. They only bring a desire for more in us. There is never enough to fulfill our lust for this world and for satisfying the flesh.

Desiring more of Jesus is different than desiring the things of this world because He is the source of all things good and right. In Him we can find contentment even though we still seek to know Him more. In Him we can be blessed even though we do not have the trappings of this world’s wealth. Indeed, we are much opposite to that. When we have more of Jesus, we are poor in spirit, we mourn, we are meek, we hunger and thirst for righteousness, we are merciful, we are peacemakers. When we have more of Jesus we do for others as we would want them to do for us. We do not have to satisfy this earthly flesh, but have a much higher calling to please Him. More of Jesus is truly the place of blessing and contentment for our lives.

Philippians 4:11 King James Version (KJV)
11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

Desire of Jesus

More Than All

More than silver
More than gold
More than riches
I can hold
More than all my earthly things
I need Jesus

More than power
More than fame
More than all
That I could gain
More than what this world can give
I need Jesus

I need Jesus every hour
I need Jesus in His power
I need Jesus in my life today
I need Jesus by my side
In His love I will abide
Above all this world can give
I need Jesus
