Amazing Things

What keeps me from giving my all
To answer the call
You’ve given to me

Why do I hold back
Is it for lack of faith
That you’ll do what you say

Help me Lord to see
That I can be
All that you’ve showed to me

Lord I humbly come before you
Take my pride away from me
Lord I truly do adore you
Make me all that you want me to be
If I’d only trust in you
And not myself
If I’d give all that I have
Get off the shelf
You’d do amazing things

I must find a way
To walk in faith
And reach the lost today

Open my eyes
Help me realize
You’ll give the words to say

All of you
None of me
So that others may see
Of your love
From above
Shine through me

Lord I humbly come before you
Take my pride away from me
Lord I truly do adore you
Make me all that you want me to be
If I’d only trust in you
And not myself
If I’d give all that I have
Get off the shelf
You’d do amazing things

The Believers Life

Let My Words

Let my words be graceful every day
That whoever hears is blessed
Let me speak only what edifies
That the hearer will lift up his eyes

Let my words bring peace to troubled souls
Comfort in their darkest times
Let me speak only what soothes their pain
So that they might lift your name again

Let my words bring joy where sorrow lurks
That will bubble up inside
Let me speak only what brings a smile
To their saddened face for just a while

Let my words bring hope to those in doubt
That will build their confidence
Let me speak only what their souls need
So that once again through faith they’ll see

Let my words bring love to everyone
That they’ll know my Savior’s heart
Let me speak encouragement to them
That they’ll lift their praise to Him again

This poem was inspired by Ephesians 4:29
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

The Good Life

It’s just a fact of life
We think we know it all
We have it figured out
Why question it at all

After this life’s done
There’s not much more for me
I might as well have fun
For this is all there’ll be

That misses one big question
That can’t escape my mind
Why are we here at all
Why is there a mankind

When I truly think about it
One basic truth comes out
We were put here on this earth
To help one another out

We’re not here for ourselves
How pointless that would be
We’re here to lift each other
And live in harmony

Let’s stop all the confusion
That comes when it’s just me
Let’s put the other first
How good would life then be

The Believers Walk

Change the World

I’m going to learn to follow
Follow you wherever you lead
Follow you despite what I see
I’m going to learn to follow

I’m going to learn to trust you
Trust you with all that I have
Trust you with all that I am
I’m going to learn to trust you

There’s only one way
There’s only one truth
It’s found in your Word
Please open my eyes
So that I might see
The wonderful things you have for me

I’m going to learn to listen
Listen whenever you speak
Listen for every word
I’m going to learn to listen

When I do what you ask me to do
When I go where you ask me to go
When I hear your sweet voice in my ear
Then I can change the world
Then I can change the world

There’s only one way
There’s only one truth
It’s found in your Word
Please open my eyes
So that I might see
The wonderful things you have for me

What A Wonderful Day

I heard Jesus today
In the song of the birds
In the gentle cool breeze
In the rustling leaves
I heard Jesus

I saw Jesus today
In the eyes of a child
In the glow of their smile
In the faith the displayed
I saw Jesus

I touched Jesus today
When I prayed for the lame man
When I sat with the widow
When I sang to the lonely
I touched Jesus

So often we go through our life
Letting Jesus just pass us by
Because often we don’t recognize
He is right there by our side

Remember He said to beware
That the person we meet unaware
If we minister to them and share
It’s the same as if He was right there

So take notice throughout this day
That you recognize Him all the way
And in the evening you’ll say
I heard Jesus today
I saw Jesus today
I touched Jesus today
What a wonderful day

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

 

Will You Be Jesus To Me

I am the man on the street
Watching His life go by
I lost my job
My wife and kids
I just cannot figure out why

So I sit day by day in the gutter
Looking for some food to eat
A handout would help
As I beg for bread
A touch from the Master I need

Will you be Jesus to me
Will you help me today
Help me find my way
Could you be Jesus to me?
I need some help
I can’t find my way
I need His touch today

I am a woman who’s lost
I was thrown out of my house
My money is gone
I’m broken and bruised
I was abandoned by my spouse

The street has been cruel to me
I have sold myself for bread
So many bad men
Have treated me mean
I need God’s touch instead

Will you be Jesus to me
Will you help me today
Help me find my way
Could you be Jesus to me?
I need some help
I can’t find my way
I need His touch today

I watch as people walk by me each day
They shake their heads and just walk away
One touch from Jesus can ease all my pain
Are you a Christian? Do you know His name?

Will you be Jesus to me
Will you help me today
Help me find my way
Could you be Jesus to me?
I need some help
I can’t find my way
I need His touch today
