Oh, What A Savior He is to Me

I once was bound but now I’m free
I once was blind but now I see
I once was troubled but now have peace
Oh, what a Savior He is to me

I once had fear but now have faith
I once was guilty but He took my place
I once was a sinner but he showed me grace
Oh, what a Savior He is to me

What a Savior He is to me
Took my sin, nailed it to a tree
All my shame and guilt gone forevermore
Gave me new life, my heart restored

I once had sorrow but now have joy
I once had despair, but hope I enjoy
I once was so poor, but now riches untold
Oh, what a Savior He is to me 

What a Savior He is to me
Gives me life eternally
Relieves all my fears and all of my doubts
From all of my troubles He leads me out

So, I will praise Him, I will lift my voice
Up to the heavens with a shout of praise
So, I will praise Him, I will lift His name
Higher and higher will I lift my praise.

I’m Resting

I’m resting today in the power of His love
There is no greater power on earth
His love never fails and it never gives up
I’m resting today in His love

I’m resting today in the light of His joy
There is no greater happiness found
His joy lifts me up when this life gets me down
I’m resting today in His joy

I’m resting today in the calm of His peace
There is nothing that unsettles me
His peace stills the wind and the waves when they come
I’m resting today in His peace

I’m resting today in the strength of His hope
There is no way I’ll let go of Him
His hope lets me know that my future is bright
I’m resting today in His peace

I hope that today you are resting in Him
There is no greater life than this
To know that the Savior is walking with you
Please rest today in Him

Make It So

I feast on the bread of this world
Instead of the bread of Life
I drink from my cup and my glass
Instead of the Living Water
I wake up to cares of this world
Rather then thoughts for your word
I’m not sure what I’m searching for
But I know what I need from my Father

I need a deeper desire to learn
A deeper desire to pray
A deeper desire to walk with you
A deeper desire to praise

Make it so, Lord
Make it so today
Let not another day go by
That I do not walk in your way
Fill me with your grace and mercy
Help me give it out to the world
Make it so, Lord.  Make it so
Make it so today.

He Breaks Me Down

He breaks me down, so he can build me up.
He pours me out so he can fill my cup
He dries me out so I will thirst for him.
He wears me down to lift me up again

His desire is to reach into my heart
take the old man out and make me new
His desire is to empty me of me
And fill me up with everything brand new

He uses trials in my life to show me I am weak
He uses every circumstance to build my faith
When I give my life to him and fully trust his grace
I will see his mercy working every day

He builds me up whenever I break down.
He fills my cup when I have been poured out
He satisfies the thirsting of my soul.
He lifts me up when life has got me down

His desire is to put his hope in me,
Drive away my doubt, and lift my faith
His desire is to fill me with his joy
And overwhelming peace every day

He uses trials in my life to show me I am weak
He uses every circumstance to build my faith
When I give my life to him and fully trust his grace
I will see his mercy working every day

I will see his mercy working,
And in faith I will be trusting
That his grace will give me hope every day
I will see his mercy working,
And in faith I will be trusting
That his grace will give me hope every day

Beside Me

Today I can say how good it is
To sleep in my house 
To lay in my bed
To rest in my living room
With the one I love beside me
It was lonely when we were apart
It was hard to sleep
It was uncomfortable to rest 
It was unusual in its waiting
With one beside me now and then
Our Father in heaven gave his son
To be born in a Manger
To die on a cross
To forgive our sins and give us life
So we could be with Him eternally
He cries to us 
Come, rest in my peace
Come, lay in my arms
Come, be with me forever
For you are the one I love
If you don't know Jesus
As your Lord and Savior
Why not ask Him today to forgive you
Ask Him into your heart
And He will save your soul
And you will be with Him
Forever.

God Never Changes

God never changes.
If there are trouble in your life, God can change them to miracles
If you have doubts, God can change them to faith
If you are sick, God can change you to healed
If you're in sorrow, God can change it to joy
If you're trouble, God can change it to peace
If you're heart hurts, God can change it to comfort
If your lost, God can change you to found
If you're in sin, God can change you to righteous
If your alone, God can change it to oneness with Him
God never changes in His character, but he is ever changing our character - if we let Him.
Allow Him to change you as He sees fit - It's always for the best.

Look in the Mirror

I looked in the mirror and what did I see
A reflection of the old man who lived in me
But I know that Jesus has set me free
So, I need to see what He wants me to be

I adjusted my mirror and focused my eyes
As I looked for the Spirit that lived inside
Suddenly I saw, much to my surprise
The new man in me was very much alive

CHORUS
He filled me with peace.  He filled me with joy
He filled me with hope that flooded my soul
He filled me with His love and with a love for Him
And now there’s a new man living within

Now I need to make sure that the whole world will see
This new man that’s taken up residence in me
If I show grace to others in their time of need
They will see that Jesus is living in me
They need to see that Jesus is living in me

BRIDGE
He wants me to live holy. He wants me to be free
He wants me to show others this love He has for me
Looking in the mirror all that I should see
Is the man that He made me when He set me free.

CHORUS

All That I Desire

I want to see your face
Put my hand in your hand
 Hear you whisper in my ear
 Walk beside you through this land
 
 I want to have your blessing
 As we walk side by side
 Knowing you will never leave me
 If with you I abide
  
 Jesus, precious Jesus
 You are all that I desire
 Your Holy Spirit guiding me
 Will set my heart on fire
 Help me live a life of mercy
 Help me live a life of grace
 Because that is what it takes
 If I want to see your face
  
 I want to have you smile at me
 And tell me job well done
 I want your love to flow through me
 Reaching everyone
 
 I want to see the nations saved
 So all will sing your praise
 Because there's nothing more I love
 Than worshiping your name
  
 Jesus, precious Jesus
 You are all that I desire
 Your Holy Spirit guiding me
 Will set my heart on fire
 Help me live a life of mercy
 Help me live a life of grace
 Because that is what it takes
 If I want to see your face

I Live For You

I gave up my old ways. I started anew
For the rest of my days I’m living for you.
No turning back because I’m breaking through
For all that I want is to live for you

In the heat of the day with a cool morning dew
I’ll make the decision to live for you
When storms come around me with waves crashing through
I don’t have to worry I’m living for you

And when people ask why I have such Joy
I’ll say I found Jesus and He fills my soul
Because every day and every hour
You give me strength and you give me power

Precious Lord Jesus thanks for the cross
For so many years I counted it loss
But now I’ll give my life and all that I have
I’ll live for you until this life is passed

So when this old life is finally through
I’ll meet you in heaven because I live for you

Where would I be if I had not traveled to visit a friend of mine half way across the country in 1976? Where would I be if I had not gone to church with him that night and heard that message? The message that convinced me I was headed for hell and I made me know I did not want to go there. Where would I be if the pastor had not come to my friends’ house the day before I left and asked if I wanted to get saved and live for Jesus? Where would I be if I had not prayed that prayer and, with sweat coming from deep within and drenching my clothes, knew that something had changed inside me?

I believe with all my heart that the night I prayed that prayer would have been my last if I had not sincerely prayed that prayer. I travelled 70,80,90 mph all the way home from Iowa with a wobble in my front left tire. When I took it to my mechanic he could not believe I had just come all the way home from Iowa. I had a broken tie rod! I have no doubt that if I had not prayed that prayer, I would not have had God’s protection on the way home that day and the tire would have fallen off, as it should have. I would have had a terrible accident and be serving a life sentence in a hell none of us want to go to.

Have you prayed that prayer today? Have you been Born again, which Jesus says is a requirement to even see the Kingdom of Heaven? Are you living for Jesus? If you have not, please do it today. It may be your last.
