He Peeks Through

When storm clouds have gathered
When lightning cracks loud
He peeks through the storm
Rainbow colors abound

When sickness has found us
We’re feeling quite low
He peeks through the hurt
And all pain must go

He parts the darkness
He shines His light
He peeks in with mercy
And brings us new life

When finances crumble
Our battle seems lost
He peeks through the chaos
He pays all the cost

When sin was abounding
Our lives bound for hell
He peeks in with grace
His story we’ll tell

He parts the darkness
He shines His light
He peeks in with mercy
And brings us new life

He peeked down from heaven
He saw our estate
He died on a cross
Provides our escape
From sin’s deathly blow
He made us a way
He peeked past our sin
And showed us the way

He parts the darkness
He shines His light
He peeks in with mercy
And brings us new life

 

Help Me, Lord

Help me Lord
Help me see the depth of sin in me
Help me be what you called me to be
Help my heart be opened up to see
Help me Lord

Help me Lord
Help me know your mercies when they come
Help me understand the wrongs I’ve done
Help me see the victory you’ve won
Help me Lord

You have done it all for me
There’s nothing I can do
But fall down humbly on my knees
And cry out help me Lord

Help me Lord
Help me follow you all of my days
Help me walk in all your lovely ways
Help me lift my hands in lofty praise
Help me Lord

From manger to grave
Your life you gave
To show me the way
Into your grace
Now help me obey
Your word everyday
My lips will lift up your praise

You have done it all for me
There’s nothing I can do
But fall down humbly on my knees
And cry out help me Lord

 

My Prayer

Lord please help me to find my way
My feet to often go astray
I need your guidance every day
While walking in this world

I find myself on the wrong path
I must abscond or face your wrath
Then I return to you at last
Looking to your word

Have your precious mercy flow to me
Make me all that you want me to be
Keep my eyes from sin that lurks within
So that I might walk with you again

I wander off so easily it seems
The enemy has evil schemes
But by your blood I’ve been redeemed
I once again can stand

Your strength not mine Oh Lord
Your will not mine Oh Lord
Your way not mine Oh Lord
This is my prayer
This is my prayer

Have your precious mercy flow to me
Make me all that you want me to be
Keep my eyes from sin that lurks within
So that I might walk with you again

He Has Been Merciful to Me

Through all of my struggles
And all of my pains
Through all of my heartaches
And all of my days
Through life’s hardest battles
I know this one thing
He has been merciful to me

He has been merciful
So merciful
All of my life, all of my days
He showed me His love
When my life goes through the battles
He’s always at my side
He has been merciful
So merciful to me

Through troubles in marriage
That caused me to cry
Through loss of a job
Twenty years left behind
Through every trouble
I know this one thing
He has been merciful to me

He has been merciful
So merciful
All of my life, all of my days
He showed me His life
When my life goes through the battles
He’s always at my side
He has been merciful
So merciful to me

I’ve battled through cancer
I’ve battled through pride
I’ve battled through sin
Long settled inside
Losing a finger
Or a shoulder that hung
He has been merciful to me

He has been merciful
So merciful
All of my life, all of my days
He showed me His life
When my life goes through the battles
He’s always at my side
He has been merciful
So merciful to me

In His Image

He guides me by His hand
To walk within His plan
Day by day
He shows the way
To follow His command

He holds me in His arms
I never feel alarm
Tight and secure
I’m always sure
I’m safe from earthly harm

In His image He made me
To walk these daily steps indeed
But not by earthly form
His grace I do adorn
His mercy flows through me
His love to others seeps
This is the image He had planned for me

He walks beside my way
So I won’t go astray
He’ll pick me up
If I get stuck
He’ll make sure I’m okay

I am His hands and feet
I am His mouth and heart
I am His messenger
Through me He does impart
His mercy and His grace
Must flow through my embrace
So may I always know
His image I must show

In His image He made me
To walk these daily steps indeed
But not by earthly form
His grace I do adorn
His mercy flows through me
His love to others seeps
This is the image He had planned for me

 

I Want to Thank You Lord

In appreciation of all the psalms, poems, songs and worship choruses the Lord has given me over the past 8 years, I am posting my favorite one for the daily prompt this morning.  My singing is not the best, but the message is from my heart.  Even through my battle with cancer, I never stopped thanking Him for His mercy.  We serve an awesome God.

I want to thank you Lord for your mercy in my life
I want to thank you Lord for your great sacrifice
You have given me your all
Help me give my all to you
I want to thank you Lord

You deserve the highest praise
You deserve the highest praise
You deserve the hghest praise
My heart can give

Be Blessed!

No Other God

He spoke and there was light
He made the heaven and earth
His voice brought forth the plants
Creation heeds His word
The animals were next
He made them every one
Then man was formed by Him
Beginning then was done

There is no other God like Him
There is no other God like Him
Beginning and the end
All was made by Him
There is no other God like Him

His mercy is so evident
His grace is ever free
He fills us with His joy
He keeps our souls at peace
He understands our sorrows
He feels our deepest pain
When our lives take a fall
He picks us up again

There is no other God like Him
There is no other God like Him
Beginning and the end
All was made by Him
There is no other God like Him

When I have doubts
When I have fears
His loving hand
Will wipe my tears
When I am lost
When I’m alone
His voice will say
I am His own

There is no other God like Him
There is no other God like Him
Beginning and the end
All was made by Him
There is no other God like Him

No Complaints

Some people give out hatred
Others emit fear
There are those who always have complaints
Some will bring you down
Others make you doubt
There’s even some who have a hundred pains

All of the above
And many more beside
Can truly work to bring a person down
It’s not the way to be
If Christ is in the lead
The words He spoke gave mercy all around

Let us dispense His mercy
To everyone we meet
That we might speak in words of love and grace
No place for our complaining
No murmuring or doubt
Only those things that fill our hearts with praise

It Matters Not

It matters not what I’m going through
Or what the day may bring
The Lord deserves my praise this day
So, I will gladly sing.

I’ll sing of His great mercy
I’ll sing of His great love
I’ll sing of His amazing grace
He lights the star’s above

He gives me joy abundant
And peace within my soul
Never does a day go by
He makes my spirit whole

I’ll shout His praise from the rooftops
I’ll lift my voice and sing
Eternal Hallelujahs
To the King of Kings
