Through the Storm

I come to you down on my knees
Hoping you will hear my plea
Ease my suff’ring ease my pain
So I can praise you once again

You speak to me so plain and clear
Making sure that I will hear
When you praise me through the storm
I will rescue you from harm

Through the storm I’ll praise you
Through the storm I’ll worship
Every trial
Every test
Will find me praising you

I rise up from my knees in haste
I lift my voice in grateful praise
Your word has spoken to my heart
From your praise I’ll not depart

Hallelujah hallelujah
Hallelujah to my King
Hallelujah hallelujah
Praise to you I sing

Through the storm I’ll praise you
Through the storm I’ll worship
Every trial
Every test
Will find me praising you

That Wand’ring Spirit

There are times that I get caught up in the battle
My enemies will come to taunt and shout
It seems my situation will defeat me
And all that taunting starts to grow my doubt

Then I hear a voice so gently come and whisper
It’s the voice of my dear Savior calling me
My son do not be troubled by the trial
It’s there to make you all that you can be

I let this trial come so you would trust me
No matter what the circumstances bring
If you will just determine to go through it
You’ll find that soon your soul will dance and sing

I’ll give you strength to hold up under pressure
I’ll give you hope to come and light the way
I’ll give you joy and peace to calm your spirit
And you will see the victory one day

I slowly heard the voice of doubt go weaker
The taunting want it’s evil way as well
The only voice I heard no was my Savior
Guiding me out of that wand’ring spell

The trouble quickly faded into nothing
As I determined I would trust His word
I knew that I had grown a little stronger
The next storm would not throw as much a curve

He gave me strength to hold up under pressure
He gave me hope to come and light the way
He gave me joy and peace to calm my spirit
I now I see the victory today

Sweet Victory

We were not born for heartache
We were not born for pain
We were not born for suffering
We were not born for shame

We were not born for trials
We were not born for doom
We were not born for sorrow
We were born to overcome

Through all our disappointments
Through all of life’s hard tests
There’s someone walking with us
Who always wants our best

Jesus is our Champion
Our mighty victor strong
When He lives within us
We sing His victory song

I’m an overcomer
Through Jesus precious blood
No matter what I’m facing
His mercy is enough

He’ll walk me through the valleys
He’ll guide me day and night
When life is at its darkest
He’ll lead me to the light

I was born for victory
I was born to win
I was born to overcome
This flesh that lives within

I was born for Jesus
As He was born for me
From now on I will walk
In His sweet victory.

A Spring Within

I’ve got joy in troubles
Joy in tears
Joy in sorrow
Joy in fears
I can say without a doubt
When I am hurting joy wins out

You ask how joy can overcome
The heartaches that will often come
How can a man be rocked with pain
And have a joy that still remains

It is no secret gift I have
Nor is it hid from any man
This joy is here for you to gain
When life seems to go down the drain

Just turn your mind to Jesus Christ
And realize He bled and died
Was tortured and was crucified
In nine short hours paid the price

Yet His word said that joy was there
As He gave sight to what’s ahead
His eyes not fixed on earthly things
Or all the troubles this life brings

If we would turn our eyes and see
The gifts that grace has meant to be
Our lives are filled with His sweet love
Besides those things that wait above

If we could only rest our mind
Away from troubles in our lives
Than joy would be a spring within
That never will grow dry again

 

The Journey

This journey I am on has it’s pitfalls
Sometimes I’m in holes so deep
I look for ways out
Then to God I shout
His loving hand rescues me

This journey I’m on has its turmoil
I’m dazed and confused in the mess
I try to stay calm
Then Gods graceful arm
Embraces me and i feel blessed

The road can be long
The path can be hard
The rocks can be sharp
The hill can be steep
The way can be difficult
But God has a plan
He’ll carry me through every time.

This journey I’m on can bring sorrow
Sometimes my soul is real down
I look for his peace
Then God brings release
His joy puts me on solid ground

This journey I’m on can feel lonely
There is no one nearby to call
I search for the Lord
My prayer brings reward
His comforter becomes my all

The road can be long
The path can be hard
The rocks can be sharp
The hill can be steep
The way can be difficult
But God has a plan
He’ll carry me through every time.

Trust Him on your journey
Praise Him on the way
He will guide you safely
Listen while you pray

The road can be long
The path can be hard
The rocks can be sharp
The hill can be steep
The way can be difficult
But God has a plan
He’ll carry me through every time.

Making Things Right

I cannot avoid the trials in life

I cannot avoid the fight

But I can rely

He’ll be by my side

Whenever the testing begins 
I cannot avoid some sorrow 

I cannot avoid some pain

But I know His plan

He will hold my hand

His joy will return again
Always there for me

Right by my side

Calming me

Keeping me

Making things right

Knowing He loves me

He’ll see me through 

He’ll turn every test for my good
I cannot avoid some people

I cannot avoid their doubt

I can build them up

With kind words of love 

I can help them figure life out
Perhaps they were brought to me

By His great plan

Perhaps I was put here for them

I must take the time

I must help them find 

The God who can bring them through
Always there for me

Right by my side

Calming me

Keeping me

Making things right

Knowing He loves me

He’ll see me through 

He’ll turn every test for my good

His Plan

Tiny granules of gleaming white sand
Slither through the hourglass of time
That signifies my lifespan
I cannot see this occurrence
I know not how much sand has emptied itself
From top to bottom
Nor can I perceive how much remains
To still work it’s way through
I am completely at God’s mercy
Then I make a perceived costly mistake
As I proceed down the pathway of life
I pause
I imagine that I have damaged my relationship
With my God who controls the sand
Has the plan been altered
Has the master removed some sand
Have a done irreparable damage
To the outcome
I ponder
Do I really think I am powerful enough
To upset the meticulous plans
Of Almighty God
Who formed me in my mother’s womb
Who knew me before He formed me
Who knows all from beginning end
Reality enters my mind and my spirit
As I acknowledge His authority
To allow whatever is needed into my life
To mold and make me into His perfect vessel
I humbly ask for His mercy
I give Him thanks for giving me this trial
I accept with joy this challenge
I lift my hands in praise
To Him who sits on the throne
I proceed

Lead Me

I rarely can see where He’s leading

I often must simply obey

My walk is by faith

As I quietly wait

While He leads my along the way

His plan will unfold before me

The road always turns for my good 

No matter the test

My soul can find rest

When I know that He’ll carry me through

Lead me, Lord, lead me today

I’ll follow you through the fire

Lead me by your Holy Spirit 

Your will is my desire

You always know my limitations 

You stretch my faith further each day

I know I’ll come through

When I trust in you

As I quietly learn to obey

No test too hard

No trial to big

No turn to sharp 

No time to think

Simply by faith

You’ll bring me through

As long as my faith remains

Lead me, Lord, lead me today

I’ll follow you through the fire

Lead me by your Holy Spirit 

Your will is my desire

He Calls To Me

There’s a voice that calls out to me when I’m afraid
He says don’t you worry, I heard you pray
I will be with you to carry you through
Every trial you face

Times can get lonely here on this earth
Often times I just don’t feel I’m much worth
It is then that His voice whispers soft in my ear
I gave up my Son for you

When I am down
When I’m left out
When I am weakest
I give a shout
A grand shout of praise
To my Lord up above
I know He’ll hear me
And show me His love

The days of my journey often bring tests
Somedays I feel like I hardly get rest
If I listen closely I’ll hear His voice
Come unto me, my child

He’ll hold me up in His wonderful arms
Tell me He loves me as He brings a calm
He’ll carry me through those difficult days
When I abide in Him

He loves me
He cares for me
He is my Lord
He holds me
He speaks to me
Him I adore

When I am down
When I’m left out
When I am weakest
I give a shout
A grand shout of praise
To my Lord up above
I know He’ll hear me
And show me His love
