Truly Amazing

There are many who seem to think’
That they are in control
They run along in life
And end up in a hole
I know ‘cause I have been there
I thought I had a hold
But soon it all came crashing down
And brought me to the floor

There is a God in heaven
Who has a plan for you
When you become imperious
He knows just what to do
He lets you go your own way
You’ll find there is no groove
It’s then you must decide
Which life you want to choose

You can choose a life of pleasure
Of doing your own thing
But in the end it costs you
And death is what it brings
Or you can trust in Jesus
And then your soul will sing
The song of His great mercy
Truly amazing

What Can I Do

What can I do but thank you
For all you’ve done for me
What can I do but praise you
With all that’s within me
What can I do but shout out
Your wondrous love for me
I will testify of my Lord Jesus Christ
Who died for me

Thank you Lord for saving me
I praise you for the victory
I’ll shout and sing of all you’ve done
So others know of your great love

Do You Feel Special?

I can’t remember when I felt so special
As the day that I asked Jesus in my heart
I felt His love come in
As He wiped away my sin
And now I know I never will depart

You see I never thought that I was someone
Who had a very unique call to live
But He showed me the way
As He guided me each day
To the calling He had meant for me to fill

Perhaps you have never felt important
Maybe you just feel you disappearhttps://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2018/11/11/your-daily-word-prompt-unique-November-11-2018/
Just come to Jesus Christ
And He’ll transform your life
You’ll find you have a purpose every year

Rue the Day

This world does not respect the truth
It often can’t define it
So when we bring Good News to them
We innovate to share it

We make sure that they understand
That this one truth will save
And if they balk and go their way
In time they’ll rue the day

I urge you to pick up God’s Word
And read the stories over
If you will open up your heart
My God will show His glory

One Path

I’ve traveled many roads
While living on this earth
Some led to a party
While others had not worth

It seemed I’d often end up
On a dead end in my life
I saw many ways to turn
But never could decide

But now my life is easier
The labyrinth is gone
There is now just one path
That I want to be on

It is the straight and narrow one
That leads to heaven’s gates
Are you now walking on that path
Come now and don’t be late

For Jesus Christ will soon return
To take the saved away
There’s only one path leading there
Accept His cross today

The Only Way

I find it funny that some people think
That all we have is life on earth
And others think we will come back in some form
So that our life will have more worth

Still others think they must do good deeds to earn
A place in the heavens above
And others think all have been rescued from hell
Whatever they do is enough

It seems so bizarre to me
That Jesus died on a tree
So that all of us could be free
If we did not have a choice

If God would save everyone
Then why would He send His son
Why not just have it be done
By the sound of His mighty voice

After all the whole world was made
By His voice in just 6 days
Couldn’t He make us all saved
So we could all rejoice

When you think about what God has done for us
And how He has showed us His grace
Than you’ll know that accepting His Son as our Lord
Is truly the only way

I Adore You, Lord

I adore you, Lord
You have done great things for me
I adore you, Lord
You gave up your life for me
When I think of your great love
That came down from heav’n above
I can only sing this song
I adore you Lord

You came to me when I was lost
You gently called my name
I didn’t know you’d paid the cost
To wipe away shame
Your Holy Spirit gently dealt
He showed all my sin
He showed to me my lack of wealth
How I was poor within

Then one night my heart came to know
The choice that I would face
A life forever lived below
Or in a glorious place
I chose you Jesus on that night
The years have passed by since
I’ve learned the choice I made was right
Now from my heart I sing

I adore you, Lord
You have done great things for me
I adore you, Lord
You gave up your life for me
When I think of your great love
That came down from heav’n above
I can only sing this song
I adore you Lord

Perhaps you haven’t made the choice
To make Jesus your Lord
You better think about it now
Because the time is short
The Lord is coming back real soon
The saints will all be gone
And you’ll be left alone on earth
With men who’ll seek your harm

On that day
We’ll fly away
Our hearts will soar
With Christ our Lord
The angel choir
Will take us higher
And we will sing
Yes we will sing

I adore you, Lord
You have done great things for me
I adore you, Lord
You gave up your life for me
When I think of your great love
That came down from heav’n above
I can only sing this song
I adore you Lord

He Peeks Through

When storm clouds have gathered
When lightning cracks loud
He peeks through the storm
Rainbow colors abound

When sickness has found us
We’re feeling quite low
He peeks through the hurt
And all pain must go

He parts the darkness
He shines His light
He peeks in with mercy
And brings us new life

When finances crumble
Our battle seems lost
He peeks through the chaos
He pays all the cost

When sin was abounding
Our lives bound for hell
He peeks in with grace
His story we’ll tell

He parts the darkness
He shines His light
He peeks in with mercy
And brings us new life

He peeked down from heaven
He saw our estate
He died on a cross
Provides our escape
From sin’s deathly blow
He made us a way
He peeked past our sin
And showed us the way

He parts the darkness
He shines His light
He peeks in with mercy
And brings us new life

 

It Seemed Enough

I’ve given myself to studies
I’ve given myself to work
I’ve given myself to liqueur
I’ve often been a jerk

I’ve given myself to women
I’ve given myself to drugs
I’ve given myself to this world
At times it seemed enough

Bu then I heard a voice calling
Calling me by name
‘Twas the voice of Jesus my Savior
I have never been the same

So from now on I dedicate
My life to Jesus my Lord
And I give my whole self to Him
I will trust in Him alone

The Nature of our Soul

Some say that they will be fine in the end
That Jesus saved us all that fateful day
The sacrifice was made
On Him our sins were laid
And now we can go on our merry way

There’s an element of truth in what they say
Jesus did atone for all our sins that day
But still you must repent
Of a life that has been spent
With the sin stain of the past still in place

You see it’s not the sin that we all see
That is critical to rid from this body
It’s the nature of our soul
That keeps us from being whole
It’s been there since the beginning of all time

This natural sin is deep within your heart
And there is only one way it departs
Confess that you have sinned
Repent and ask Him in
Take a personal step to Jesus Christ our Lord
