Amazing Love

I came running to my Lord today
I had Jesus on my mind
He wrapped His arms around me
And He said “My son, your mine”

A calming reassurance
Flooded through me from above
As He held me close beside Him
I could feel His awesome love

Love that overlooks my faults
Love that conquers all
Love that washes sin away
Love that hears my call

His love is amazing
It is with me everyday
I’m not sure what I would do
Without His love today

I found that I was lost again
And couldn’t find my way
Somehow, I’d walked away from Him
So I knelt down to pray

I asked Him to draw close to me
And soon I felt Him near
His tenderness surrounded me
And wiped out all my fear

Love that wipes away my fears
Love that calms my heart
Love that tells me I’m okay
Love that never parts

His love is amazing
It’s always there for me
Even when I’ve lost my way
He fills my deepest need

This time I stayed real close to Him
I did not want to leave
He told me that He loved me
And He’d always be with me

Now I must go tell others
About His wondrous love
So they can know the Savior too
And be blessed by God above

Love that took Him to the cross
Love that gave His life
Love that washed away my sin
Love that came to die

His love is amazing
He gave His life for me
And rose again so I could be
With Him eternally

I’ll shout about this wondrous love
As long as I have breath
For He has given everything
From birth until His death

I will sing His praises
Everywhere I go
For He is Lord of all the earth
And everyone should know

His love is amazing
His love conquers sin
His love is for everyone
His love always wins

His love gives and gives some more
Until the day is done
No one can out give His love
No, not anyone

Chasing The Blues

Sometimes I just don’t feel like

Lifting up my voice in praise

My mood is down and dreary

And My hands don’t want to raise

There’s  no joy in my heart

My peace has been disturbed

I just want to jump back into bed

Where my moans will not be heard


But something deep within me

Starts to stir my spirit ‘round

And from somewhere in my being

A song begins to sound

It’s not a song of mourning

Or of grief or deep despair

But it’s a song of praise

That struggles to find air


Hallelujah, He is Lord

He rules the heaven and earth

Hallelujah, He is Lord

I’ll praise His matchless worth

I’ll sing a song of worship

As I lift my voice to Him

Hallelujah, He is Lord

To Him my praise I bring


Now I feel much better

My mood has turned around

I feel the peace of God

Praise fills my heart with sound

It’s the sound of heaven’s angels

As they praise the Lord with me

I’m no longer down and dreary

My spirit’s been set free


The lesson here today

Is that moods can be erased

Just open up and praise Him

And your blues will leave when chased

Your heart is ready always

To lift His holy name

So, prepare yourself for worship

Let’s lift up Jesus Name!


Hallelujah, He is Lord

He rules the heaven and earth

Hallelujah, He is Lord

I’ll praise His matchless worth

I’ll sing a song of worship

As I lift my voice to Him

Hallelujah, He is Lord

To Him my praise I bring

Mercy To Me

When I think of His mercy 
His wonderful mercy
I can’t help but lift up my voice
For it is His mercy
Magnificent mercy
That gives me great cause to rejoice


I was a sinner
A mess of a man
When mercy came calling to me
I heard His voice
And accepted His words
His mercy has now set me free


Mercy saved me
Mercy raised me 
Mercy gave me a brand-new life
Mercy healed me
Mercy sealed me
I’m a child of the King for all time


Now I have Jesus

Beside me each day

He guides me with His gentle hand

I call on His mercy

Whenever I fall

And He will restore me again


Mercy touched me
Mercy cleansed me

Mercy washed all my sins away
Mercy called me
Mercy loved me
And this love follows me every day


So, I sing of His mercy 
His wonderful mercy
I lift up my voice to His name
For it is His mercy
Magnificent mercy
That’s worthy of all my praise


Praise be to Jesus

Wonderful Jesus

The author of mercy is He

I worship you Jesus

Magnificent Jesus

You have shown mercy to me


What A Change!

I have long been searching

For fulfillment in my life

As a child the toys and play would fit the bill

Then my friends would fill my life

But I always needed more

And I searched both in the dale and up the hill


I turned to drugs and alcohol

Thinking this would be the way

Girls were thrown into the mix quite often too

But the more I went that  way

The more I needed more

I just nver got enough to make me full


Then I met Jesus, and all that changed

Every need I had He did supply

His mercy forgave all my misgivings

And His grace has sated every thing inside


I  no longer need to search for my fulfillment

Because all that I need is in His love

If today your life is wandering, not sated

Then why not look to Jesus up above!


In response to the daily prompt Sated

He Is Your Sacrifice

I can’t imagine heaven

Beyond what I can read

A paradise unlike

Any that I’ve ever seen

Prepared from the beginning

For those who find the way

And no one knows when Jesus

Will declare “This is the Day”


Way back in the beginning

The Father had a plan

He created all this earth

And then He made a man

But man’s seed became sinful

When he chose to disobey

And God chose Cherubim

To block our access to the way


Many centuries went by

Before a virgin heard the call

The Holy Ghost descended

And His seed produced a child

They named the child Jesus

He was born to save the world

He taught men of the Father

And healed them with His words


He was hated by the leaders

For the people all loved Him

So, the leaders of the day

Decided He they should condemn

They beat and crucified Him

As He hung His blood dripped down

Then He died before they killed Him

And they buried Him in the ground


Before He went He told us

That He was the Way

And that no one came to God

Unless they came through Him by prayer

His blood would cleanse their sins

And bring healing for disease

And because He rose again

He gave us life eternally


Those who have accepted Him

Will make heaven their home

We’ll dance upon the streets of gold

Never more to roam

If you have not accepted Him

And His wondrous gift of life

Any not ask Him in today

He is your sacrifice.

Don’t Be Psychotic!

Life is full of ups and downs

And ins and outs

And all arounds

It can be so chaotic

We almost get psychotic


But Jesus changes evrything

The joy and peace I found

Keep my life real sound

He loves me oh so much

And I can feel His touch


Do you know Him and His grace

Do you know His love today

If not, dont wait

It’s not too late

Ask Him in your heart today

And bid chaos goodbye!

Are You Prepared?

This time of year is thrilling

As Christmas lights get lit

Anticipation fills the air

As Santa has his list

The children are all smiles

Awaiting the big day

It couldn’t come to fast

For they’re prepared to play


Much like the signs of Christmas

Are the signs of the end times

Calamity throughout the world

And loss of civil minds

The church awaits the coming day

With great anticipation

Are you prepared for Christ’s return

Do you have His salvation?


If not we can take care of that

Right now if you don’t mind

Just ask Jesus to forgive your sins

And make Him Lord of your life

Acknowledge that He died for you

And that he rose again

To give eternal life to you

Forever up in heaven

When Tomorrow Comes

Tomorrow is a day.

We stop to give our thanks

For all the things that bless our earthly lives

We gather with our loved ones

And eat a worthy feast

Remembering all the wonderfully good times


When we give our thanks for family

And those who eat with us

Will we also pray for those we know

Who a close one they have lost?


When we thank God for the meal we eat

So abundant and so good

Will we pray for those who have much less

And perhaps take them some food?


When we give thanks for all the things

That we have been blessed by

Will we pray for those in poverty

That a blessing they will find


When we give thanks to God above

For His salvation plan

Will we pray for those who don’t know Him

And give to them His plan?


When tomorrow comes it’s easy

To give our thanks to God

But this year let’s remember

That’s really not enough


Let’s lift our prayers for others

Who suffer through this day

Let’s lift our hands to help them

With aid along the way


Our blessings weren’t for us to hoard

And save up for some day

They were given so we can give

So let us find a way.


Yes, when tomorrow comes

Let the Golden Rule win out

We can change the world this way

By simple acts of love

Changing Words

I used to think sarcasm 

Didn’t matter much to most 

I use to use it every single day

But then I found my words 

Were hurting all my friends 

Like an arrow from a bow, a mark they made
Then one day I met Jesus 

And His gentle voice called out 

In a way that did elicit my response 

I knelt down on my knees 

And I asked Him in my heart 

 I knew my life was changed from that day on
The first thing my friends noticed 

Was the changing of my words 

The sarcasm and cursing was all gone

I told them I’d met Jesus

And you should do the same 

You’ll be glad you did your whole life long.

My Thankful Song

I take some time this morning 

To write a song for you

A song of thanks for all you’ve done for me 
And in this song I lift my voice
And give you all the praise
Your love inspired this new melody

Thank you, Lord, for giving up
Your royal,  heavenly throne 
To come down to this earth
Only to die alone

Thank you for your courage
To fulfill your Father’s plan 
Beaten and rejected 
Yet you didn’t lift a hand

Thank you that you died for me
To take away my sin 
Thank you that you rose again
So in heaven I will sing

Thank you for your mercy
That forgives me when I fall
Thank you for your grace
That supplies me for the call

Thank you for your joy
Thank you for your peace 
Thank you for the hope
You’ve forever given me

Thank you for your love 
That’s always there for me
Thank you for your Spirit
That guides and comforts me

The list of things to thank you for
Goes on and on and on
I bring it to a close right now 
And end this thankful song.
