What A Wonderful Father

Oh what a wonderful Father
Oh what a marvelous friend
He’ll keep me in His loving arms
Until the very end

I wandered through my younger years
My path was growing dim
I didn’t know which way to turn
Until I turned to Him

He set my face to better things
He turned my life around
He took my feet from sinking sand
Placed me on solid ground

Oh what a wonderful Father
Oh what a marvelous friend
He’ll keep me in His loving arms
Until the very end

I’m resting in His promises
And when the trials come
I turn to His great mercy
He saves me by His love

One day He will come back for me
And take me to His throne
I’ll worship Him forevermore
In my eternal home

Oh what a wonderful Father
Oh what a marvelous friend
He’ll keep me in His loving arms
Until the very end

Running To You

It’s hard to find the words to say
How much I love my Lord
Every day that passes by
I love Him more and more

He’s with me everywhere I go

For in me He abides

Whenever I am feeling low

As He dwells deep within

Every time I turn around

To make you safe and sound

His joy is so unspeakable
Even when times aren’t good

Like a rapid running brook

But certainly not least
They’re always there protecting me
From the enemy
And I can so depend on them
To carry me each day
I can’t imagine life without
His mercy and His grace

Wonderful He is to me
Marvelous His ways
I will praise His mighty name
Every single day

What is Your Passion

Our world has turned love

Into lust

And it is called passion

But passion is so much more

More than lust

More than emotion

More than a desire or need

Passion is what you pour your heart into

Your life into

Your soul  into

Your mind into

Your strength into

The Word says

Love the Lord your God

with all your heart

And all your mind

And all your soul

And all your strength

In other words

Be passionate about Jesus

 

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Passionate

Go To Jesus

If you’re looking for peace in your turmoil

And you can’t find the solace you need

There’s one place to go

Where peace always Flows

Go to Jesus

 

If the joy in your life is depleted

And sadness is claiming your day

You’ll find what you need

If you sit at His feet

Go to Jesus

 

Jesus has all that I need

And all I could ever desire

He’s always right there

To hear every prayer

I will never go wrong with Him

 

If you think you’re unloved by the world

And you feel like you’re always alone

I know that you’ll find

A real love divine

Go to Jesus

 

His mercy is everlasting

His grace flows freely from His throne

When you ask Him in

He will be your friend

And you will be loved evermore

 

Jesus has all that I need

And all I could ever desire

He’s always right there

To hear every prayer

I will never go wrong with Him

Wonder

I cannot help but wonder
How he came to love me so
And I cannot imagine
How his love I came to know

So is it any wonder
That I lift His name in praise
He’s more than I imagined
His worship fills my days

Oh how amazing is His love for me
He came to save me, and set me free
I am in awe of His sweet grace
I cannot wait to see His face

I cannot help but wonder
Why He left His throne above
And I cannot imagine
Why He’d die to show His love

So is it any wonder
That I give my life to Him
He’s more than I imagined
That is why His praise I sing

My wonderful redeemer will soon return for me

And take me home to heaven where His I’ll always be

All pain and sorrow He’ll erase and death will be no more

I cannot wait to see His face

The one that I adore

Oh how amazing is His love for me
He came to save me, and set me free
I am in awe of His sweet grace
I cannot wait to see His face
Oh how amazing is His great love for me

With Me

I’m walking with Jesus all the day long

He fills up my heart with a joyous song

I am so glad He travels along

With me

 

I’m talking with Jesus all the day long

He tells me he loves me, to him I belong

I am so glad He walks alongside

With me

 

What a wonderful Savoir I have

He takes care of my every need

He meets me in the morning dew

And stays with me all the day

What a wonderful Savior I have

He stays with me through every storm

And when day is done and the sun is set

Through the night He will always stay

 

I’m resting with Jesus under this tree

He tells me how much He really loves me

I lean on His shoulder, glad that He will be

With me

 

I’m trusting in Jesus every day

I know that He’ll lead me in His ways

And He will protect me all my days when He is

With Me

 

What a Merciful Savior I have

He overlooks all my mistakes

When I fall down He picks me up

And helps me start over again

What a Merciful Savior I have

He took my sin and shame away

When He gave His life at Calvary

He pardoned me with His dear grace

 

I will lift my voice and sing

Hallelujahs to the King

I will shout His praise

All of my days

To me He’s everything

 

I will worship His sweet name

He is day to day the same

I can trust in Him

He’s my lifelong friend

Jesus is His name

 

What a wonderful Savoir I have

He takes care of my every need

He meets me in the morning dew

And stays with me all the day

What a wonderful Savior I have

He stays with me through every storm

And when day is done and the sun is set

Through the night He will always stay

The Storm

Storm clouds gather in the west

Lightning claps the sky

Wind is rising, sudden gust

Lifts a tree branch high

Thunder rumbles, drawing near

Majestic dark clouds roll

Smell the fragrance of the rain

Before it starts to fall.

 

Then the drops come slowly downward

Hear their pitter-pat

Picking up the pace they echo

Through the rolling grass

Now a torrent water fountain

Opens up the sky

Streams of raindrops rushing downwards

Onto you and I

 

Suddenly the rain is over

Clouds start to depart

Evening sun peeks through below

And brings a brand new start

As the sun reflects the raindrops

Rainbow does appear

Reminds me of God’s great promise

He is always near

 

When you face the next storm in your life

Remember this

God allowed the storm too come

It may be just test

So guard your way and lean on Him

Throughout the stormy blast

On the other side you’ll see

A rainbow come at last
