You Are Mine

You ask why I allowed sickness
That had you in bed for days
You spent the time praying to heaven
In hopes that I’d take it away

You ask why you went through a trial
When finances were a mess
You spent the time asking provision
In hopes I’d take care of the rest

I allow these because I know you
I know you will call out my name
You’ll depend on my strength
My mercy and grace
I always know you are mine

You ask why so many temptations
Have come across your path
You spent the time asking for mercy
In hopes you’d avoid my wrath

I allow these because I know you
I know you will call out my name
You’ll depend on my strength
My mercy and grace
I always know you are mine

I’ll protect and provide
I’ll stay by your side
I’ll watch over you
When you are mine
Healing
Deliverance
Strength day by day
All will be yours
When you are mine.

I allow these because I know you
I know you will call out my name
You’ll depend on my strength
My mercy and grace
I always know you are mine

I Waited on the Lord

The flood waters were rising against me and I cried into the Lord for help
They would not cease
Their volume was more than I could fathom
Covering my ankles
Then my knees
Up to my waist
I considered putting my finger in the leak
And solving it myself
But I waited on the Lord and He came
He turned the water into blessing
And it overwhelmed me
Oh how good and how merciful is our God
He makes our trouble into our testimony
As He delivers us from them all
My finances were dwindling and I cried into the Lord for help
Money was tight and food was scarce
The winter was closing in and the storehouse was bare
My belly was empty
My hunger was growing
I considered taking food from a neighbor unawares
Just to survive
But I waited on the Lord and He came with manna from heaven
Through men He brought food to fill my cupboard
It overflowed from that day forward
Oh how good and merciful is my God
He will not suffer His children to go hungry
But will fill them with honey and milk
From His vast storehouse
I was sick and fever racked my bones so I cried into the Lord to heal me
My belly groaned with cramps that would not cease
If I ate the food would not stay put
Nourishment did not sound soothing at all
Chills and sweats abounded
Headache wad unceasing
I considered just giving up as death sounded like sure relief
But I waited on the Lord and He healed me
He made the fever to go out of me
The sweats finally covered my bed clothes
My strength was restored and my appetite wad renewed
Oh how good and how merciful is my God
He does not leave me sick unto death
His living arms wrap around me in my hurting
And He takes it from me every time
I was down and feeling sad and lonely so I cried unto the Lord
The sorrow on my heart was worsening
My soul grieved out of my loneliness
As I idly sat in my house
No one there to commune with
No one calling or stopping by
Not able to go outside
I despaired for me life
But I waited on the Lord and He came in like a flood
He brought His peace and His joy and filled my heart
His love surrounded me wo beautifully
Ob how good and how merciful is our God
He comes when I call
He rescues me from all my despair
He loves me with an everlasting love
Thus I will praise His name
I will lift up my voice to the heavens
And exalt the name of the Lord my God
Because He is good and His mercy endures forever.

Greatness out of this Great Mess

Riddled with cancer
Shoulder just quits
Neuropathy covers my feet
Two stem cell transplants
Weakness ensues
God will make some greatness out of this great mess

Jesus the master healer
He supplies all the strength that I need
I fill all my days
With words of His praise
As His healing starts working in me

First I walked with a walker
A cane followed closely behind
I walked just a block at a time
But my drive just kept up
With my faith in my Lord
Now a mile a day isn’t long

My shoulder would not move at all
The doctors could not understand
They said maybe never would heal
Movement came in ten months
Therapy started at once
Now full range of motion is here

Jesus the master healer
He supplies all the strength that I need
I fill all my days
With words of His praise
As His healing starts working in me

God will make some greatness
Out of this great mess
Cancer is no longer found
I’m healed from above
With doctors involved
In the therapy of Jesus love

Jesus the master healer
He supplies all the strength that I need
I fill all my days
With words of His praise
As His healing starts working in me

In The Midst

I’m tired of being tired
I’m sick of being sick
I’ll lift the name of Jesus in a song
But while I sit here waiting
For good health to return
I’ll lift the name of Jesus in a song

You wonder why I praise Him
When things are not so right
When He allowed this sickness in my life
The answer is so simple
It’s not hard to understand
When you think of all He’s done for me through time

He has loved me
He has saved me
He has healed me
He will raise me
He removed my sin and promised me new life
He delivered me
He’s been merciful to me
I will praise Him every day of my life

Now even when I suffer
When my life seems out of place
I do not forget what he has done for me
In the midst of any trial
I can raise my voice and sing
Hallelujah to my soon and coming King

His promises are true
His love is everlasting
His grace will cover all my foolishness
His mercy never fails me
His peace is inn my heart
His joy unspeakable flows endlessly

He has loved me
He has saved me
He has healed me
He will raise me
He removed my sin and promised me new life
He delivered me
He’s been merciful to me
I will praise Him every day of my life

What Are Yours?

We pay it little attention
We hardly know it’s there
We go through life so blindly
And most of us don’t care

When we’re young we learn to say no
And push the limits of all
As we grow our pride takes center stage
And our own way is our call

We strive for worldly riches
And we thing we know all things
There’s nothing that can teach us
Of a better way to live

My friends this is the symptom
Of the sin that’s born in all
From Adam’s seed it entered
And caused us all to fall

But Jesus paid redemption’s price
To take our sin away
Won’t you accept Him as your Lord
And save your soul today?
