Out of the Fog

There are times when I am restless
There are times when I am down
There are times when life seems useless
And I feel so all alone
In those days when I am weary
I will go to God In Prayer
When I bring to Him my query
I will find an answer this

He hears my cry
All the time
He hears my prayer
He’s always there
I never have to worry or be afraid
Because I know that I have prayed.

There are times when I am hungry
There are times when I’m in doubt
There are times I feel unworthy
When my faith has given out
In those days when I am weary
I will lift my voice in praise
When I bring Him all the glory
He will bless all of my days

He hears my cry
All the time
He hears my prayer
He’s always there
I never have to worry or be afraid
Because I know that I have prayed.

I’ll cry out to Jesus
I’ll lift up His name
He is my refuge
He lights my way
When I am down
When I feel lost
Jesus will lift me
Out of the fog

He hears my cry
All the time
He hears my prayer
He’s always there
I never have to worry or be afraid
Because I know that I have prayed.

 

The Culture of Peace Love and Dope

I wish it was different in our world today
I wish people had more respect
But this will not be
As long as we see
A culture profuse with neglect

Neglect of accountability
Neglect of respect for the law
Not knowing what’s right
Not having the light
No care for morality

We seem to have lost our way somewhere
In the culture of peace love and dope
Now true joy is gone
Real peace never dawns
Most people have lost all their hope

But there is a hope that is sure
One that never will fail to win
Just turn to the one
Who’s Gods only Son
All you need can be found in Him

 

In response to the daily prompt Profuse

Turn to Jesus

If you’re struggling today
And you don’t know where to turn
Turn to Jesus

If you’re lost along the way
And it’s hard to understand
Turn to Jesus

He will guide you and protect you
He will light your way
He will set your feet on solid ground
If you’re wandering through life
And you think there’s no return
Turn to Jesus

If you’re sick and in despair
And you have no place to go
Turn to Jesus

If it seems your life’s a wreck
And you just can’t get it right
Turn to Jesus

He will heal your broken body
He’ll restore you’re wounded heart
He will make you feel brand new again
If you’re wandering through life
And you think there’s no return
Turn to Jesus

He is the way when there is no way
He is the truth when you doubt
He is the light when the darkness comes
He is the only way out

If you’re looking for the answer
To the questions in your life
If you’re ready to surrender
All your sin and shame and strife
If your heart is truly broken
If your words are faintly spoken
If you have just one last prayer
Turn to Jesus

Fixer-Upper

When I was lost He found me
Set me on the narrow path
I could not find my way without Him
When I was sick He healed me
Gave me strength to rise from bed
My body healed without and within

When I was lonely He sat with me
Let me know that he was near
Oh what a comfort He is when by my side
When I was afraid He calmed me
Whispered peace into my ear
Now in His daily presence I can hide

The Lord is my fixer-upper
He makes me new each day
I’ll trust in Him
I’ll always win
As long as I follow His way

When I was broken He fixed me
Put me back together again
I’m a new creature whole and alive in Him
When I was in bondage He freed me
Paid the price to redeem me from sin
I owe my life to my Lord so I give it to Him

The Lord is my fixer-upper
He makes me new each day
I’ll trust in Him
I’ll always win
As long as I follow His way

In sorrow or in pain
In sunshine or rain
In doubt or in faith
In loss or in gain
He always is near
To ease me from fear
I trust in His holy name

The Lord is my fixer-upper
He makes me new each day
I’ll trust in Him
I’ll always win
As long as I follow His way

Taking The Bait

My mind was blank
I didn’t care about life
Or after life
Many said I was
A human vegetable
At one time
Party after tumultuous party
Always a little
Out of my mind
Not caring
Who I hurt
Or where I was going

Then an old friend
Caused me to ruminate
About a Savior
Who my life would illuminate
I heard his words
And I took the bait
Now I am born again
