If He Loves Me

If He loves me why do I suffer
If He loves me why do I hurt
If He loves me why do the trials of my life bring trouble at every turn
If He loves me why do I tremble
at what the next day will bring
If He loves me when will He come to my side and remove all the things that sting
Isn’t it enough that He died for me to take away my sins?
Isn’t it enough that the comforter comes to settle your heart within?
All that this life will throw at you will never compare to His love
So when trials and tests try to steal all your rest
Come to Jesus for He is enough
His love is always there.  It is always a comfort, always a resting place when trouble comes.  We don’t have to wonder if he loves us if we will just look at the cross.  Look at what he went through for you.  Look at how much He suffered because he loves you.  There is no pain greater than the pain of His heart breaking when the Father turned His head and darkness covered the sky.  He had never been separated from His Father, not for all eternity past.  And yet for three hours, He was covered with sin, and the Father could not look.  That is how much Jesus loves you and me.
When trouble surround you and it seems that a temptation is too hard to bear, get that picture of the cross in your mind.  Think about Jesus on that cross.  In your minds eye look at the blood dripping down from His brow.  Look at the tears in His flesh.  Look at the nails in His feet and hands.  Look at His love poured out.  This is the image that will get you through your tests and trials.  He loved you so much that he stretched out His hands and died for you.  Isn’t that enough?  Does He really need to do any more for you to show you His love?
John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believed in Him would have everlasting life.

This Moment

In this moment right now
I will praise you
I’ll forget the past
And I’ll praise you
I’ll press toward the mark
As I praise you
Going forward not back
Praising you

Looking to you
I will praise you
You are my source
I will praise you
My trust is in you
As I praise you
You settle my course
While I praise you

With all of my heart
With all of my soul
With all of my strength
I will praise you
Every day
In every way
I will give all
Of my praise unto you

Behold My Son

The time has come
The night is passed
The sun is soon
To rise at last

As I await
The morning light
I look to God
To give me sight

Behold the sun
It’s brilliant rays
Light up the clouds
When comes the day

Amidst the shadows
When trouble looms
I wait for God
To bring good news

His voice I hear
In grace so mild
Lift up your head
My little child

Behold my Son
Look on His face
Soon all your sorrow
Will erase

He’ll bring you joy
His peace abounds
Stand near to Him
On Holy ground

Behold my Son
His grace will shine
Just like the sunrise
In the sky

In every day
When trouble comes
Get rid of fear
Behold my Son
