Keeping Me Safe

I walked alone for many years
Trying to find my way
It seemed I was going in circles
Life was just wasting away

I tried lots of different methods
Designed to bring me some joy
But each one turned to disaster
As my life was just further destroyed

Then one day I met the Savior
Who died on a cross for me
He took all my sins upon Him
And from guilt He set me free

Ever since that day I’ve been resting
In the Master’s loving embrace
There is no longer reason to look more
Because He always keeps me safe

I Rest

I rest in your promises Savior divine
Because of your mercy they all can be mine
I rest in your promises Jesus my Lord
You show them all to us throughout your word

I rest in your peace it calms every storm
I rest in your joy which bubbles and warms
I rest in your hope that never will die
I rest in your love forever it’s mine

I rest in your healing for every disease
I rest in deliverance that you bring to me
I rest in your cleansing from every sin
I rest in your Spirit that dwells within

There’s no need to worry
There’s no need to doubt
When I have a conflict
You’ll carry me out
And when indecision
Has darkened my way
You’ll speak to my heart
And guide me each day

I’ll rest in your mercy abundant and free
I’ll rest in the mercy that you give to me
I’ll rest in your grace amazing and grand
I’ll rest in the grace that helps me to stand

And when I am weary and day is done
I’ll look to the west and the setting sun
I’ll know that you’re with me throughout the night
I’ll quietly rest in you

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

Nothing Can Separate

In every storm I still hear His voice
Calming the wind and the waves
There’s never a time He is not there with me
His peace sustains me always

In every sorrow I know He is there
Comforting me in my grief
He always speaks words that cause me to soar
His joy always brings sweet relief

Nothing can separate me from my Lord
His mercy makes my life whole
His joy and His peace
Are always with me
And His love tarries deep in my soul

When I feel down He lifts my head up
Inclining to hear my prayer
His back never turns away in disgust
His love will always remain

Nothing can separate me from my Lord
His mercy makes my life whole
His joy and His peace
Are always with me
And His love tarries deep in my soul

Through trial and test
He knows what is best
He’ll carry me through
From doubt He’ll rescue
To don’t to fear
He always is near
My Jesus, my Savior, my Lord

Nothing can separate me from my Lord
His mercy makes my life whole
His joy and His peace
Are always with me
And His love tarries deep in my soul

What A Wonderful Day

I heard Jesus today
In the song of the birds
In the gentle cool breeze
In the rustling leaves
I heard Jesus

I saw Jesus today
In the eyes of a child
In the glow of their smile
In the faith the displayed
I saw Jesus

I touched Jesus today
When I prayed for the lame man
When I sat with the widow
When I sang to the lonely
I touched Jesus

So often we go through our life
Letting Jesus just pass us by
Because often we don’t recognize
He is right there by our side

Remember He said to beware
That the person we meet unaware
If we minister to them and share
It’s the same as if He was right there

So take notice throughout this day
That you recognize Him all the way
And in the evening you’ll say
I heard Jesus today
I saw Jesus today
I touched Jesus today
What a wonderful day

The Greatest Brilliance

It’s not the stars that twinkle
Way off in outer space
It’s not the smile that radiates
On a little child’s face
It’s not the sun that rises
And sets with beauty rare
It’s not the thoughts of men
That make us all aware

When searching for the greatest
Brilliance of them all
We have to look at Jesus
And just stand back in awe
For there are many attributes
That we could mention here
I think I’ll list a few of them
Because He is so rare

His majesty is glorious
His might beyond compare
His wisdom is so high above
He’s always everwhere
His power never ceases
His mercy falls like rain
His grace is so amazing
His love will never fail

I could go on forever
His brilliance shines so bright
But now I’ll stop and praise Him
For He has brought me light
He’s worthy of my worship
All day and into night
Let’s give Him all the glory
And praise Him with delight

Worthy Are You Lord

When I wake from my night’s sleep
Then I find my soul did keep
In my heart I gently weep
With joyful praise to God

When my feet first hit the floor
Then I walk right to the door
My spirit lifts up high and soars
To sing the highest praise

Worthy are you Lord, my keeper
Worthy are you God most high
Worthy are you Lord, my strength and shield
Worthy are you Jesus Christ

When my eyes behold the light
Then I look to sunrise bright
My soul rejoices in His sight
My voice sings out His song

Worthy are you Lord, my refuge
Worthy are you God most high
Worthy are you Lord, my joy and peace
Worthy are you Jesus Christ

All that I am
All that I will be
All that I can fathom
Dwells in thee
All the mercy
All the grace you give
Never ending fountain
Come from thee

Worthy are you Lord, my Savior
Worthy are you God most high
Worthy are you Lord, you set me free
Worthy are you Jesus Christ

Open the Flood Gates

His mercy and grace abounded to me
When I saw the blood at Calvary
Was meant to pardon and set me free
The flood gates were open wide

Now when I look up at that old rugged cross
I now longer see the life that was lost
My eyes now are open to know of the cost
He paid just to give me life

Wonderful Savior
Glorious Lord
Abounding in mercy
Fulfilling your word
Perfect redemption
Bought with your blood
I lift your praise up high

Open the flood gates of mercy today
Open them wide so all can be saved
Open my mouth so I’ll declare your ways
Sharing the message of life

My heart will worship
My lips will praise you
My soul will honor your name
My voice will sing out
Hosanna to Jesus
Open the flood gates of praise

Wonderful Savior
Glorious Lord
Abounding in mercy
Fulfilling your word
Perfect redemption
Bought with your blood
I lift your praise up high

 

More Than Enough for Me

More peace when I believe
More joy abundantly
More grace from Calvary
You’re more than enough for me

More hope within my dreams
More mercy for my need
More love flows like a stream
You’re more than enough for me

More than enough for me
More than enough for me
Jesus my Lord
It’s you I adore
More than enough for me

More than my heart can imagine
More than my mind can grasp
More than my soul has ever seen
Your strength will always last

More than the stars in the heavens
More than the sand of the sea
More than a number I can count
Are your precious thoughts of me

More than enough for me
More than enough for me
Jesus my Lord
It’s you I adore
More than enough for me

A Mouthpiece for Jesus

What’s it about oh Lord my God
These words you give to me
Each day that goes by bring more and more
They never seem to cease

I write only what I hear from you
I write at those times you speak
Your voice comes so gentle yet so clear
As your presence I do seek

Sometimes it’s a poem of rhythmic gait
Sometimes it is in free verse
Sometimes it’s a song and melody
Sometimes it’s a chorus of praise

You then have my post on the blog as you ask
Then onto my Facebook page
With the mission complete I pray they will touch
Many lives with your wisdom that day

But what’s it about to you my Lord
What is it that you require
Am I doing all that I can do
Because that is my heart’s desire

My son just keep on listening and writing my words
Your mission is clear as day
I’ve chosen you to be a mouthpiece of mine
To show all my children my ways

You have been faithful in so many ways
Through good times and horrible trials
You’ve listened and written with joy in your heart
The words that have brought many smiles

I’ll keep asking you to write down these words
As sure as the sun will rise
Don’t worry about the timing or length
And don’t be concerned with the whys

You are reaching a people I love very much
With words that they need to hear
And it will continue as long as you keep
A longing and attentive ear

With that I bowed down and wept in my heart
As I realized my task
I’ll write every word for your benefit
Because that us what He has asked

And all of your likes and comments each day
Will bring blessings that never depart
I’ll know beyond doubt that He’s working through me
To bring joy and peace into your hear

I thank you my Lord for the mercy you’ve shown
To make me a Psalmist for you
Forever I offer myself as your scribe
Do with me as you want to do.
