I Worship You

With all my heart and all my soul
I worship you. I worship you
With all my mind and all my strength
I worship you. I worship you

You are the truth, the light, the way
You give me hope for every day
Your joy and peace are here to stay
I worship you. I worship you

Holy, holy Lord
Worthy of my praise
Honor, glory power and might
I sing to you. I sing to you

This world worships a lot of gods. In this time of great tribulation due to COVID-19, people are scrambling to find hope. Their gods have been taken away from them. First to go was sports. One by one, seasons were cancelled or postponed, bringing a halt to television sports broadcasts. The idols of the game were set on the sidelines, hoping to one day be back on their lofty perch. Second was entertainment. With sports closing down, Hollywood soon followed. Movie theaters, concerts, zoos, Broadway shows all came to a halt. The stars who people idolized were set on the sidelines. Next was leisure travel. Campgrounds, hotels, theme parks, national parks were all closed. Restaurants closed their doors to become delivery specialists The allure of Mickey Mouse faded in the dust. Even our churches were told not to meet. Then our money was affected as businesses all over closed their doors leaving us all with a sense of fear to even go outside. And lastly our freedom was taken as, state by state, shelter in place orders were handed out. All these things we idolized.

God still sat on the throne. He was always there, will always be there, and is there today. What better time to lift up our voices in praise to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer has not changed. This world around us will slowly get back to normal. I hope and pray that during this time you have come to realize that all you can really depend on is Jesus. He is worthy of our praise!

Revelation 4:11 King James Version (KJV)
11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

Rock of Ages

When the storm clouds gather
And the North wind roars
Do not be discouraged
God will make you soar
High above your troubles
Where the sky is clear
You’re on higher ground
When the Lord is near

He lifts me up to higher ground
He calms my soul without a sound
I know I’m safe when He’s around
He is my rock of ages

Rock of ages, fortress strong
Rock of ages, I’ll go on
Jesus, Lord, please keep me safe
You’re my rock of ages

David writes many psalms about the one who is his fortress, his refuge, his strong tower. There will be storms that rage in our lives. There will be trouble on ever side. There will be heartache and there will be strife. But Jesus says He has overcome the world! He has overcome to bring us joy, peace, and hope. His love has brought us up out of the grave of sin and set our feet on solid ground. He is our rock and our fortress strong.

So don’t get lost in the storm. I live in the Midwest and we get blizzards quite often out here. The first thing they tell you is not to get out of your car if you are stranded. In a blizzard you can easily get disoriented and turned around if you start walking. Stay in the car. Stay in Jesus loving arms when the storm comes. Strand on the Rock and you will be safe.

Isaiah 26:4 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
4 “Trust in the LORD forever, For in [a]GOD the LORD, we have an everlasting Rock.

Rearranged

I was running far away from you
Lost in sin not knowing what to do
Wasn’t looking for a change
Thought I had life all arranged
Then you came running to me

When I heard of your deep love for me
How you died that day on Calvary
Tears welled up and filled my eyes
My mouth opened up and cried
Thank you Lord for running to me

I’m so glad you came running
I’m so glad you searched me out
I’m so blessed by your great love for me
You came running to me
You came running to me

Now I stand on your great promises
Every day I’m feeling free and blessed
I’m no longer bound in chains
My life has been rearranged
All because you came running to me

I would never have found you on my own
I would never have known your love
Yet you sought me out
Turned me about
You never gave up on me
You never gave up on me

I’m so glad you came running
I’m so glad you searched me out
I’m so blessed by your great love for me
You came running to me
You came running to me

Jesus Life

The Glory of the Lamb

The Lamb of God came from above
To show us all the Fathers love
Upon the cross He bled and died
And thus became my sacrifice

Oh what a love is this
That He would give His life
Oh what a love is this
That freedom now is mine

The Lamb of God sits on the throne
From death to life His body rose
The angels praise His worthy name
Jesus my Lord Lamb that was slain

Oh what a love is this
That He would give His life
Oh what a love is this
That freedom now is mine

Heaven and earth declare His glory
Heaven and earth declare His glory
Heaven and earth declare His glory
The glory of His name
The glory of the Lamb

Oh what a love is this
That He would give His life
Oh what a love is this
That freedom now is mine

This Love

I believe that God sent His Son to die
I believe He was brutally crucified
I believe Jesus gave away His life
This is what I believe

I believe in the cross of Calvary
I believe in the blood He shed for me
I believe that this blood has set me free
This is what I believe

Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
This love that God has for me

I believe that He died that fateful day
I believe that He rose up from the grave
I believe that He’s coming back one day
This is what I believe

Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
This love that God has for me

His word He has given
His promise is true
His mercy forgives me
His grace makes me whole
His power is in me
His peace floods my soul
His joy overwhelms me
I give Him control

Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
This love that God has for me

Take Control (Music Video)

This is a new chorus the Lord gave me yesterday.  Hope you enjoy it!

Here are the words.

What else can I do but to worship you
What else can I say but give you praise
What else can I offer you but this life you’ve given me
All I have is yours Oh Lord

All of my heart
All of my soul
All of my spirit take control
All of my heart
All of my soul
All of my spirit take control

The Believers Life

Tune of Life

Every day I sound a tune
With all I say and all I do
What others see
And hear from me
Will tell them who I did choose

I used to sound a party song
And all my friends came right along
A song of doubt
My heart did shout
My life style made me feel alone

Now I sound out praise and joy
Every day I am employed
By His sweet grace
I have been saved
I now belong to Christ my Lord

We all are instruments in life
We play a tune from deep inside
I hope God holds
Your heart and soul
So you will play a tune of life
