Forever Love

He loves us always
Yes it is true
Forever His love
Abides with you

Through sunshine and rain
His love abides
Through sorrow and pain
His love does not hide

When difficult times
Come in like a flood
His love will be there
Always enough

When i feel defeated
When my hope is gone
His love will hold me
And bring me along

When heartache has touched me
When life disappoints
His love will uplift me
His spirit anoints

There’s no situation
His love will not win
Forever His love
Is settled within

All But Tame

I Dream of Genie was a favorite show
For all my kids when on the grow
The laughed at how she folded arms
Providing good but sometimes harm

Aladdin was a movie name
The genie there was all but tame
He made us laugh and wish that we
Could have a genie just like he

But genie’s will not bring us peace
Joy and hope they can’t release
If you need these and also love
The place to look is God above

He may not fold His arms and blink
He may not work as you would think
But He will fill your life with good
More than a genie ever could

He Called Me

He called me out of darkness
He called me into light
He called me out of sickness
He called me into life
He called me out of sorrow
He called me into joy
He called me out of worry
I trust Him evermore

He called me out of doubting
He called me into faith
He called me out of hurting
He called me into grace
He called me out of bondage
He called me to be free
He called me out of judgment
His mercy covers me

Oh what love He has for me
This love that pardoned me
This love that gave His life at Calvary
Oh what love he does provide
This love that’s so divine
This love He gave to me to give away

He called me out of this world
He called me to His side
He called me out of selfishness
Asks me to sacrifice
He called me from myself
To give my life away
He called me to be His
And love others every day

Oh what love He has for me
This love that pardoned me
This love that gave His life at Calvary
Oh what love he does provide
This love that’s so divine
This love He gave to me to give away

 

What A Merciful God

What a merciful God we serve
What a merciful God we serve
He gave His own Son
To die in our place
What a merciful God we serve

What amazing grace He gives me
What amazing grace He gives me
Al His blessings divine
Are forever mine
What amazing grace He gives me

What abundant hope God has shared
What abundant hope God has shared
I know heaven is mine
For He lives for all time
What abundant hope God has shared

What adoring love God reveals
What adoring love God reveals
Every promise I own
As He sits on the throne
What adoring love He has shown

This Chaotic World

I had tried to get much knowledge
I had tried to find true joy
I had tried to find real love
But it all was one big ploy

I was frantic to find something
That would make my life seem full
But emptiness was all I found
In this chaotic world

It was then I found my Savior
Actually, He came to me
He called my name out load
He said He’d set me free

No more would I lack comfort
Or peace, joy, hope or love
He would give them all to me
If I’d call to Him above

Ever since that day
I have lifted up my praise
To the one who called to me
And saved me by His grace

In response to the daily prompt Frantic

Unbroken

Unbroken peace
He gives to me
Amidst the storm
He calms the sea

Unbroken joy
In darkest night
From deep within
He’s my delight

Unbroken hope
In times of doubt
Whatever comes
He brings me out

Unbroken grace
That flows so free
When I fall down
He pardons me

Unbroken love
Will never fail
I may give up
But He prevails

Unbroken praise
To Christ my Lord
I’ll lift His name
Forevermore

Tried and True

This world is full of wonder
This world is full of life
This world is full of sorrow
This world is full of strife

This world is full of chaos
This world is full of fear
This world is full of friendship
This world has love for me

So many different feelings
Flood our minds each day
We all have to determine
Which path we’re going to take

If you get discouraged
Because you turned aside
Take time to find patience
Within your daily life

You are His creation
His love is tried and true
Keep that promise close
His grace will cover you

Sunday Morning

Sunday morning
I feel fine
I’ve got Jesus on my mind

He’s a real
Friend of mine
He is with me all the time

Gives me joy
Peace of mind
Looks at me with love divine

Hope that keeps
For all time
Home in heaven will be mine

How I love Him so
Jesus Lamb of God
Pardoned all my sin
Wraps me in His arms
Loves me through my faults
Dries my every tear
Calms the storms of life
Calms my every fear

Heals my ills
Soothes my pain
Always near when I should call

Teaches me
Of His ways
Picks me up each time I fall

Urges me
To go on
Even when I’ve hit the wall

Precious thoughts
He has of me
Always keeps me standing tall

How I love Him so
Jesus Lamb of God
Pardoned all my sin
Wraps me in His arms
Loves me through my faults
Dries my every tear
Stills the storms of life
Calms my every fear

Sunday morning
I feel great
I will lift my hands in praise

A Spring Within

I’ve got joy in troubles
Joy in tears
Joy in sorrow
Joy in fears
I can say without a doubt
When I am hurting joy wins out

You ask how joy can overcome
The heartaches that will often come
How can a man be rocked with pain
And have a joy that still remains

It is no secret gift I have
Nor is it hid from any man
This joy is here for you to gain
When life seems to go down the drain

Just turn your mind to Jesus Christ
And realize He bled and died
Was tortured and was crucified
In nine short hours paid the price

Yet His word said that joy was there
As He gave sight to what’s ahead
His eyes not fixed on earthly things
Or all the troubles this life brings

If we would turn our eyes and see
The gifts that grace has meant to be
Our lives are filled with His sweet love
Besides those things that wait above

If we could only rest our mind
Away from troubles in our lives
Than joy would be a spring within
That never will grow dry again

 

Only His Love

What is it that draws me to His name
What is it that turns my heart to praise
What is it that I would hope to gain
Only His love
Only His love

His love is more than I can attain
Yet He gives it freely to all the same
He gave His life so that I could be saved
Only His love
Only His love

He made the earth in a special way
Provided for me in the first five days
Then He made man out of water and clay
Only His love
Only His love

Now I lift up my eyes to Him
The one gave His life to cover my sin
Not due to anything that I did
Only His love
Only His love

Only His love can set me free
Only His love can bring me peace
Only His love can satisfy me
Only His love
Only His love
