That Same Tree

I was wandering one day in the forest
When I realized I’d lost my way
As I tried to work out my problem
I came to that same tree again

No matter how long I kept searching
I’d try different paths and ways
But as soon as I found some hope
I came to that same tree again

God has a plan just for me
It’s not always what I can see
When I have doubts
He’ll help me out
Then I’ll be where he wants me to be

My life can be full of problems
And I try to find my own way
But as soon as I get down the road
I come to that same tree again

God has a plan just for me
It’s not always what I can see
When I have doubts
He’ll help me out
Then I’ll be where he wants me to be

Lord, lead the way
Help me to stay
On the path you have laid out for me
Open my ears
So your voice I hear
And I won’t pass that tree again

God has a plan just for me
It’s not always what I can see
When I have doubts
He’ll help me out
Then I’ll be where he wants me to be

Limitless

This world is full of questions
Asking what this life is for
Why have we been put on earth
What purpose is in store
Some people look for answers
In horoscopes and stars
Some might find a talisman
To find out who they are

There’s really only one true way
To find your destiny
Give your life to Jesus Christ
And He will give you peace
He is the creator
Of everything we see
That is why He is the one
Who knows what you shall be

He has a plan for everyone
No matter what their size
He wants to take you in His arms
And show you what is wise
He wants the best for you each day
His plan is limitless
If you’ll just trust your life to Him
You truly will be blessed

What is Life?

What is life
Why are we here on this earth
An earth filled with strife
An earth filled with fear

What should we do
With this life we’ve been given
With all we’ve been through
While we’ve been living

I cannot answer for you my friend
But I know the answer I found
The definition of why I am here
Is to tell of my Saviors love

When I was lost He called to me
He loved me even in my lost estate
He died on a cross a long time ago
That from my despair I could escape

My life is now centered on Him
I must tell you all that He died for you
There’s no one that He cannot save from their sin
Won’t you accept His great love for you

Cry out to Jesus forgive me my Lord
I give you my sin please save me today
He’ll gather you up in His loving arms
You’ll be His child for all of your days

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

Make Me Me

Can you figure it out
Does it make sense to you
That a big band just happened
Right out of the blue

Can something arrive
When nothing is there
Can complex life happen
From cells unaware

I’m bewildered, beffudled
Bewitched by belief
That any of this
Can be real and complete

This world and this space
Is much to complex
To be here by chance
As some would reflect

I will choose creation
By God as the means
That all of life happened
It makes sense to me

For if I’m an ape
As some say I should be
Then where did my purpose
Start out to be
Where did my drive
My ability
My goals and my vision
Make me me

 

In response to the daily prompt Bewildered

The Vine

Lord feed me wisdom
That I might see
All the injustice
That’s all around me
All of the heartache
All of the pain
All of the suffering
All the disdain
Feed me a heart
That will reach out in love
And touch all the broken
So they’ll know your love

Lord feed me courage
That I might know
How to change doubt
Into faith that shows
All of the fear
All of the worry
All of the sorrow
All of the hurry
Feed me the strength
To open their eyes
And lead them to you, Lord
So faith will arise

You are the vine
I am the branch
Fill me with love
Give me a chance
To bear you much fruit
As I follow your plan
Tend to my life
With your loving hand

Feed me compassion
So others  may see
Your love for them, Lord
Through the life that I lead
All of the joy
All of the peace
All of the grace
All the mercy
Feed me with life
In all that I do
So I can successfully
Lead them to you

And all of the fruit I bear dear Lord

I owe it all to you

It is your loving hand that prunes the branch

To make it bear more fruit

So do with me what you will, dear Lord

To shape and mold this branch

No matter the trial or test that comes

My life it will enhance

You are the vine
I am the branch
Fill me with love
Give me a chance
To bear you much fruit
As I follow your plan
Tend to my life
With your loving hand

My Offering

I offer you my life, my heart, my soul

I offer you myself, dear Lord

I offer you my praise, my words, my mind

I give it all to you, my Lord

 

It’s my offering of praise

The worship of my heart

All I have I give to you

I lift up holy hands

I lift my voice in song

All I have I give to you

 

I offer you today, tomorrow and all time

To use me as your vessel, Lord

I offer you each hour, each minute of my day

Fill me with your love, oh Lord

 

Everything I have

Everything I am

All of it is yours

Lead me in your plan

All that I can do

All that I can say

I offer it to you

Use me, Lord, today

 

It’s my offering of praise

The worship of my heart

All I have I give to you

I lift up holy hands

I lift my voice in song

All I have I give to you

It’s Not Up To Me

It’s not up to me

To save a soul

To take their sins

And make them whole

But it is up to me

To tell them of Christ

So That they can accept Him

And change their lives

 

It’s not up to me

To heal the sick

To take their pain

And help them live

But it is up to me

To help them see

The one who heals

And dries their tears

 

My task is to tell them of Jesus

And the wonders He’s done for me

To open their eyes to the light of His love

So that they will truly believe

 

It’s not up to me

To convict of sin

To judge the lost

And purify them

But it is up to me

To witness each day

Of the love of Christ

And to pray and pray

 

It’s not up to me

To look down on them

Or to think I’m better

Because I have Him

But it is up to me

To love them with all

My heart must go out

To both big and small

 

My task is to tell them of Jesus

And the wonders He’s done for me

To open their eyes to the light of His love

So that they will truly believe

 

For I do not know what tomorrow brings

It just might be their last day

I need to tell them of Jesus

And pray, and pray, and pray

He’s Calling Out

One day every knee will bow

And every tongue confess

That Jesus Christ is Lord of all

In heaven and in earth

 

One day everyone will gather

‘Round the throne of God

Some will live eternally

Some will be cast out

 

He’s calling out today

For all to find His way

So why not bow and pray

To Jesus Christ today

 

This day you can make the choice

That one day will decide

Whether you will live eternally

Or be the one cast out

 

This day make the choice for Jesus

He’s the only way

Take Him as your Lord and Savior

Call on Him today

 

He will take your sins away

Wash them white as snow

He will give you peace and joy

That you have never known

 

He will grant deliverance

From all that holds you down

He will replace all your fear

With faith that you can grow

 

He will give you hope that lasts

For all eternity

His love will encompass you

And let’s you know you’re his

 

He’s calling out today

For all to find His way

So why not bow and pray

To Jesus Christ today
