He Longs To Hear

I often seek to hear God’s voice
To guide me day by day
He comes and gently speaks to me
Showing me the way

He spoke before the dawn today
His words were very clear
He told me that most every day
My voice He longs to hear

He longs to hear me giving thanks
For all that he has done
From the Spirits leading in my life
To the giving of His Son
Each day He makes the sun to rise
And the stars to shine at night
Oh that we would thank the Lord
For the blessings in our lives

He longs to hear me praying
For the many that I know
Who need a touch from Him today
His power He wants to show
All week I told those close to me
That I would pray for them
He longs to have me take the time
To lift those prayers to Him

He longs to hear me praise Him
With all my heart and soul
To lift His name above all names
His glory to be told
With mighty anthems raising high
Our Hallelujahs ring
Lift up His praise for all to hear
As His great name we sing

Jesus mighty Son of God
All power and praise to you
Glory in the highest
I lift my arms to you
Praise and adoration
With all I have within
Exalted is your name oh Lord
My God, my everything


I Come To You

I come to you this morning Lord
With my heart open
My ears open
My eyes open
My mind open
Hoping to hear your voice
To sense your presence
To feel your touch

I cry out to you
With words of praise
With words of worship
With words of thanksgiving
With words of repentance
Hoping for your mercy
Hoping for your grace
Hoping for your compassion

I remember your promise
If I seek you first
That all things will be added
That I must put you above all
Then all things will be put under my feet

I stand on your word
As I seek you
As I cry out to you
You Are all I need
All I seek
All I long for
All I desire

I worship you this morning Lord
With all my heart
With all my soul
With all my strength
With all my mind
I lift my praise to your throne
Ad magnify your mighty name

Jesus, Emmanuel
Jesus, King of Kings
Jesus, Savior of my soul
Jesus, Lord of all

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

Many thanks

An extra post today
To thank you in my way
For you have made my day

You may ask me how
I got such a big wow
I’ll tell you here right now

Thius day is the first time
100 viewed my rhymes
I’m thrilled you took the time

So I give my thanks to you
To everyone who viewed
I pray God blesses you!

Completely Whole

I hear His midnight call to me
In His quiet gentle voice
Saying do not doubt these words of mine
Will cause you to rejoice

Healing will soon come to you
It’s slow but very sure
You’ll see improvement every day
Until you know your cured

There’s nothing that will keep you back
From this reality
I paid the price for healing
On the cross that fateful day

So walk in faith and lift your praise
And you will be made whole
Remember ten who I had touched
Just one gave thanks it’s told

And that one walked away brand new
No pain or scars remained
The other nine still bore their scars
From thanks they did refrain

But you my son have lifted praise
And thanks to me each day
So you will be completely whole
For you did trust my grace

With that His words were finished
And I broke down and wept
Tears of joy rolled down my cheeks
His praise I’d always kept

I knew He had the best for me
Of this there was no doubt
That is why in all our trials
It’s time to sing and shout

Sing His praise and shout with thanks
When hard imes hit your life
Sing hosanna worship Him
His healing comes in time

He hears your prayers and all your needs
He keeps His promises
Be the one who brings back thanks
Healing was soon his

Forever Grateful

I’m forever grateful for
What Jesus did that day
When He came to earth a babe
In a manger filled with hay
When He left His royal throne
He knew the price He’d pay
Yet He came and did it anyway

I’m forever grateful for
The mercy He shows me
I am such a sinner
Yet He died to set me free
And He rose up from the dead
So I will live eternally
I can’t believe He did it all for me

Oh, what a Savior
He is to me
My love grows deeper
Each time I see
His hand of mercy
Sweep over me
He is my Savior
My friend indeed

I’m forever grateful for
The joy He gives to me
It conquers every fear
And fills my heart with glee
He also gives me peace
That calms the storms in me
Fear and doubt just have to flee

I’m forever grateful for
His amazing grace
When I make all my mistakes
He won’t throw them in my face
He calmly reassures me
That beside Him is my place
And one say I’m going to see His face

Oh, what a Savior
He is to me
My love grows deeper
Each time I see
His hand of mercy
Sweep over me
He is my Savior
My friend indeed

My Thankful Song

I take some time this morning 

To write a song for you

A song of thanks for all you’ve done for me 
And in this song I lift my voice
And give you all the praise
Your love inspired this new melody

Thank you, Lord, for giving up
Your royal,  heavenly throne 
To come down to this earth
Only to die alone

Thank you for your courage
To fulfill your Father’s plan 
Beaten and rejected 
Yet you didn’t lift a hand

Thank you that you died for me
To take away my sin 
Thank you that you rose again
So in heaven I will sing

Thank you for your mercy
That forgives me when I fall
Thank you for your grace
That supplies me for the call

Thank you for your joy
Thank you for your peace 
Thank you for the hope
You’ve forever given me

Thank you for your love 
That’s always there for me
Thank you for your Spirit
That guides and comforts me

The list of things to thank you for
Goes on and on and on
I bring it to a close right now 
And end this thankful song.
