It Moves!

I never before have announced
Something special in one of my rhymes
But today I am breaking tradition
‘Cause I want to announce this on time

I’m pleased to let all of you know
This bad shoulder I’ve had for a year
Has now started to move on it’s own
In response to all who gave prayer

So I thank you with all my heart
For the prayers you have said for me
This cancer will certainly pass
Since we all have the faith to believe

 

In response to the daily prompt Pleased

My Poor Tired Feet

I cannot remember the last time I ran
My body is older and larger
There is no doubt
That running is out
It’s too hard on my feet and my arches

But I do run to Jesus when troubles arise
And He gives a pause that refreshes
He inclines His ear
My prayers He does hear
And blesses me with His good answers

 

In response to the daily prompt Pause

Grace Is Everyting

He is here very near
Guiding me each day
Helping me to overcome
Trials on the way
He is watching eyes on me
Keeping me from harm
Seeing that I have His love
In His outstretched arms
Jesus my dear Savior
What a friend To Me
Always there
Always cares
Filling all my needs
Jesus precious Jesus
My redeemer King
Watching me
Hearing me
Grace in everything
He is hearing ears on me
Every single prayer
What a comfort I can feel
Knowing that He hears
He will answer in His time
His word has promised me
I will never doubt His love
What He wants will be
Holding me hearing me
Loving me watching me
Guiding me cares for me
Grace in everything
Jesus my dear Savior
What a friend To Me
Always there
Always cares
Filling all my needs
Jesus precious Jesus
My redeemer King
Watching me
Hearing me
Grace in everything

Nothing Too Hard

There’s nothing to hard
Nothing impossible
Nothing my God can’t do
Mountains can move
Rivers can stop
So He can guide you through
No sickness can stay
Disease must obey
When God sets His mind on you
All enemies flee
When my God speaks
His words are power and truth
Lift up His name
Give our God praise
Worship His holy name
Jesus our Lord
King evermore
Worthy of all our praise
When my prayers go up
To His throne above
His answer is on the way
Just wait on the Lord
His timing is sure
There’s blessing in every delay
When fear fills your heart
And doubt gets a start
That God may not hear your request
Just turn to His word
And know that He heard
He’ll give you His absolute best
Lift up His name
Give our God praise
Worship His holy name
Jesus our Lord
King evermore
Worthy of all our praise
When Jesus had died
On the cross crucified
A large stone was sealed for the door
The stone rolled away
That marvelous day
Now He lives forevermore
Lift up His name
Give our God praise
Worship His holy name
Jesus our Lord
King evermore
Worthy of all our praise

Implicit Trust

I trust the Lord
Implicitly
No doubt
No confusion
No wondering

Many times
It’s not a matter of what
Or How
Or Why

It’s a matter of when
The answer will come

It’s in His hand
And on His schedule
Because
He knows what’s best
For me.

So I learn to wait
Wait for healing
Wait for deliverance
Wait for understanding
Wait for Him
 
And in my waiting
I praise Him
I rejoice
In His mercy
And grace

What an awesome God
I serve
He gives so much
To me
When I lift up
My prayer
He hears me
Yes  He hears me
What an awesome God
I serve

Friend To All

I looked up at the Lord
And He saw me
He saw my pain
And misery
He brought me out
And set me free
What a Savior
What a friend

I cried unto the Lord
He heard my plea
Then He came
And rescued me
He’s always near
Where I will be
What a Savior
What a friend

Savior of the world He is
Crowned with love and righteousness
Friend to all who call His name
I will always sing His praise
 
I waited for my Lord
To strengthen me
As I lift up
My prayer of need
Until the answer
I would see
What a Savior
What a friend

Savior of the world He is
Crowned with love and righteousness
Friend to all who call His name
I will always sing His praise

Merciful to me, so merciful
Loving me despite my sins
His grace is given out
His love is without doubt
He’s always there to help me win

Savior of the world He is
Crowned with love and righteousness
Friend to all who call His name
I will always sing His praise
Friend to all who call His name
I will always sing His praise
 

My Payers Go Up

A faint light
Escapes from the kitchen
As I awake this morning
And my prayers go up

There are those
I know who are hurting
As I petition God for them
And my prayers go up

There are those
Who need His salvation
As I intercede for their souls
And my prayers go up

He hears my every word
From His throne on high
As in Jesus name I pray
The answer will come
In His time

I ask God
To give them strength
As they wait for relief
And my prayers go up

I ask God
To give them peace
In the midst of the battle
And my prayers go up

I ask God
To give them joy
To replace their suffering
And my prayers go up

He hears my every word
Before His throne I bow
As in Jesus name I pray
The answer will come
now, it will come now

God will see you
Through the heartache
Through the pain
Through the suffering
Through every battle
Until the answer comes
Just trust Him

I am awake
My prayers have ceased
And my praise goes up
To the God
Tho answers prayers
My praise goes up
 
For I know
That He has heard me
And the answer’s
On the way
 
I will praise Him
I will worship
I will bow
Before His throne
As my prayers go up

The Lord Knows

When you’re feeling sick
And you’re stuck in your bed
You pray but the answer is slow
You wonder if God
Has heard your request
I can honestly say the Lord knows

When trouble surrounds you
And you see no way out
You pray but the answer is slow
As the trouble gets worse
You question His love
I am confident that the Lord knows

He knows every pain, every hurt, every stain
He knows every doubt, every tear
He knows every sorrow and every heartache
He knows every doubt, every fear

Hold onto His promise
Don’t ever let go
Because no matter what comes your way
The Lord knows

When doubt settles in
And you cannot feel God
You pray but the answer is slow
Time passes by you
The days and then weeks
You wonder if God really knows

These are the times
When our faith is tested
This trial will help us to grow
We must trust in Him
And endure to the end
You can be sure the Lord knows

He knows every pain, every hurt, every stain
He knows every doubt, every tear
He knows every sorrow and every heartache
He knows every doubt, every fear

Hold onto His promise
Don’t ever let go
Because no matter what comes your way
The Lord knows
