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

A Young Boy’s Lunch

It took a young boys lunch,
A little bread and fish
To feed the multitudes that day

You may not have much
To offer to the Lord
He’ll make it more
If you let Him have his way

The crowd came one by one
To hear what Jesus had to say
They came to Him from near and from far
As the time drew on they still remained
And it was nearing end of day
The disciples said it’s time to send them home

But Jesus knew what He would do
And told His men to gather round
And have the multitudes sit on the ground
He told them they should feed the crowd
But they could find no food around
Except a little boy and his lunch

So the Lord took the lunch
A little bread and fish
And offered thanks unto God
Then he asked His men to go
To pass it out to everyone
And there was more than enough for all

It took a young boys lunch,
A little bread and fish
To feed the multitudes that day

You may not have much
To offer to the Lord
He’ll make it more
IIf you let Him have his way

There are times we don’t know
And our hearts are filled with doubt
Because our mind can’t see to work it out
But then the Master comes
With his arms stretched out
And takes the little faith that we have left

And He lifts us up
Giving thanks to God Father
Multiply your mercy in your child’s life today
And let him know you’ll help him on his way
For it only takes a little in the Master’s hand
To mold and shape my life into His plan

It took a young boys lunch,
A little bread and fish
To feed the multitudes that day

You may not have much
To offer to the Lord
He’ll make it more
If you let Him have his way

The Eyes of Jesus

I dreamed I was walking down the street
Saw a beggar begging bread
I drop a few coins in His tin cup
Then on down the street I head

I sew a drunk man crossing the street
Has trouble finding his way
I take his arm to help him across
Then continue on with my day

I saw three young men coming my way
Their clothing and look was a mess
I bowed my head and walked silently
So as not to give them offense

What did I see when I looked at them all
Through these judgmental eyes of mine
Did my pride rise up and see their sin
Or did His mercy fill up my eyes

With all the hatred throughout our land
The church needs to rise up tall
One by one we must take a stand
And humble ourselves at the cross

He looked on us full of compassion
No matter what filled up our lives
He cried Father forgive them for you and I
As He hung His head and died

If I’ll look with the eyes of Jesus
Full of compassion and love
Perhaps I can plant a seed in their lives
And turn their hearts above

Help me Lord when I cross their paths
To see the sinner and not the sin
Give me courage to share your love with them
Give me the right words within

Make me humble and down to earth
Make me appeal to their needs
Help me to find some common ground
Help me to plant a seed

Incredible Love

His love is more than I can know
It reaches inside me
The love He brought from heaven above
The love that set me free
He taught me how to live each day
In love and harmony
Oh that I could demonstrate
His incredible love

His mercy reached my struggling soul
And forgave all of my sin
His grace has blessed abundantly
It flows from deep within
His strength is now my sure defense
I know that I will win
Oh that I could only show
His incredible love

I feel it when I rise each day
‘Til when I face the night
I feel it when I work and play
His love is like a light
It shines on me and gives me joy
I feel His awesome might
All because He gives to me
His incredible love

Love that’s filled with power
Yet it’s sweet and kind
Love that knows no limits
Touching all mankind
Love that shows compassion
Troubled ones He finds
How I want to demonstrate
His incredible love

It’s up to me to tell the world
And show them by my ways
That there’s a God in heaven above
Who cares about their days
They all should know that He is there
To touch their lives today
Oh how I must spread the word
Of His incredible love

Why?

Early Saturday morning
Lightning dazzles the sky
I woke up asking one question
The word on my mind was why

Why do I love God so much
Why does He give me such choice
Why do I love to praise Him
Why did He give me a voice

The answers came rather quickly
As I penned these words today
I’d like to share with you now
And then be on my way

I love Him because of His mercy
And His wonderful grace to me
He found me when I was a sinner
Then He lovingly set me free

He gives me a choice to follow
Or stumble right back to my shame
Just to see if I really love Him
Or if I’ll just make fun of His name

I praise Him for He’s the creator
Nothing equals His majesty
I praise Him for who He is
And all He has done for me

He gave me a voice to tell others
Of my wonderful Savior above
To share with all that I meet
How they can know His great love

Now that He gave me the answers
To the why’s I was having tonight
I think I’ll go back to sleep
And pull the covers up tight

My Mission 

I looked out to the world

To see what there would be

And everwhere I looked

I saw pain and misery

There was no understanding

Compassion seemed misplaced

People were elusive 

They would lie right to my face

Then I looked to God

To see what I would see

His mercy and His grace

Did flow abundantly 

I saw it streaming to me 

Like rays shine from the sun

The blessings that they brought me

Did lift my heart in song 

I asked the Lord to show me

How this blessing could reach out 

To those who only saw the world 

Missing out on God above

He told me that’s my mission 

My calling from above

To share with everyone I know

The message of His love

I must admit I’ve faltered

At this task He’s given me

From this day forth I promise

This mission will drive me

The Answer Is Yes

There’s a call to serve the Lord today
This I know is true
The question that awakens me
Is what can this man do

I open my eyes to look around
At a world that needs His love
I’m just one person in a small town
Can I really do enough

The answer is yes
Absolutely yes
He said I could move mountains
And do much greater things
When I reach out in faith
And I pray most earnestly
I can change a life for someone
Yes, yes, yes

I began to see around me
Little needs I could fulfill
From providing a few groceries
To a gas tank that needs filled

An old man need company
On a long ride for his health
So I rode along beside him
And shared the gospel wealth

There are so many ways we can reach out
So many things we can change
If well just take the time to bow down
And fall on our knees in prayer

The most powerful weapon I can yield
Against the enemy
Is a prayer life for others daily
That’s designed to meet their needs

As I pray for the lost and lonely
God will open my eyes to their needs
Then I step out in faith to help them
Change the world why yes indeed

The answer is yes
Absolutely yes
He said I could move mountains
And do much greater things
When I reach out in faith
And I pray most earnestly
I can change a life for someone
Yes, yes, yes

Potential

Jesus is knocking
Knocking at your door
He’s wanting to give you so much more
Jesus is waiting
Waiting just for you
He’s waiting ti give you so much more to do

You have so much potential
Wrapped up inside your heart
Why don;t you let Him in today
To make a brand new start

Jesus is longing
Longing for your soul
He’s wanting to revive you and make you whole
Jesus is watching
Watching over you
He’s hoping you’ll choose Him so He can comfort you

You have so much potential
Wrapped up inside your heart
Why don;t you let Him in today
To make a brand new start

Today and not tomorrow
Right now not later on
Give Him all you are
You just can not go wrong

You have so much potential
Wrapped up inside your heart
Why don;t you let Him in today
To make a brand new start

Love Like Jesus Loved

To love like Jesus loved we have to love them all the same
It doesn’t matter where there from or how they spell their name
Thin or tall, large or short their size is not an issue
Neither is the color of their skin or what they’ve been through

To love like Jesus loved we must remember who we are
Sinners that are saved by grace because we gave our heart
No one deserves His grace at all especially not me
Who am I to keep that grace when He says set it free

To love like Jesus loved means to reach out every day
We must give all we have to those who need to find their way
We cannot pick and choose who comes across our daily path
Each person that we meet is someone He has planted there

To love like Jesus loved means to put away our pride
It means that when we get put down we take it all in stride
It means that grace is over all and mercy rules the day
It means that when someone needs help we take the time to pray

To love like Jesus loved is not an option we can shun
He gave us His command that we must reach to everyone
So let’s get busy church and do the bidding of the Lord
Because to love like Jesus loved is what He truly called us for

If You Could, Would You?

If you could walk up to a bind man
And pray that he would see
Then watch as his eyes opened
Would you?

If you could touch a deafened ear
And proclaim that he could hear
And watch as he rejoiced
Would you?

If you could look up at a storm cloud
And ask it to change course
Then watch as blue skies opened
Would you?

If you could see the homeless hurting
And give them food to eat
Then watch as they gained favor
Would you?

Well, you can
In Jesus mighty name
You can
All these things are possible
With faith
Step out of your comfort zone
And pray
That they be saved
And healed today

If your finances were hurting
Your desire was to give
To a needy missionary
Would you?

If someone asked for prayer
When you met them on a street
And you said you’d pray for them
Would you?

If a friend offended you
Very deeply in your heart
And asked you to forgive
Would you?

Well, you should
Trusting God each moment
You should
All these things are needful
For your peace
Don’t delay one moment
Follow through
So that God will bless you
And bless those around you
With His love
