Safely Back to You

I was lost on the waves of the storms of life
Being tossed all about feeling so uptight
Hope was lost that I’d ever turn upright
Suddenly He came to me

Called my name out loud through the whirling wind
I had heard that voice so I knew it was Him
I stepped out of the boat and I walked to Him
Walking high above the waves

When I looked out on the wind and waves
I began to sink ‘neath the water ways
He reached out His hand and I found His gaze
Looking deep inside my heart

He brought me back to the storm tossed boat
That He calmed the sea set us back afloat
Suddenly a calm came into my soul
I knew all would be all right

Oh sweet Jesus take my hand
Help me please to understand
Why these storms keep tossing me
Off the path you have for me
Of sweet Jesus guide my way
Stay close by my side each day
When I’ve fallen off the path
Bring me safely back to you

Trust Him

Trust God!
What a concept we should follow.

Trust Him
in the midst of the battle,
in the height if the storm,
in the depths of the valley
and in my deepest sorrow.

Trust Him
when He does not answer,
when He seems far away,
when I don’t hear His voice
and when I feel lost and alone.

Trust Him
even if I am sick,
or poor,
or hungry
or thirsty,
even if my soul longs to be closer to Him
yet my flesh keeps me away.

Trust Him
when I can’t trust in myself,
my family,
my friends,
my neighbors,
my coworkers,
or even people in my church.

Trust Him.
Always trust Him!

More Than Faithful

If the waves should start crashing around me
And the Stars would fall down from the sky
I would still look my hands and praise thee
For you are the one who gives life

If my friends should all decide to leave me
And my body would be filled with pain
I will still lift my voice to praise thee
Or you will restore me again

You are more than faithful to me
By your grace you have forgiven me
When life is a mess
And I’m filled with stress
Your mercy is all that I need

If I find myself down on my knees
Crying out “Oh Lord How can this be?”
I know you will hear my heart’s cry
You are more than faithful to me

In all my trials
In all my tests
In all my anguish
In you I can rest
In every sorrow
You are my joy
Your faithfulness
Relieves my soul

You are more than faithful to me
By your grace you have forgiven me
When life is a mess
And I’m filled with stress
Your mercy is all that I need

A Simple Lesson

There are times that I feel invincible
That no harm can come unto me
Then the enemy comes
He grabs me buy the arms
And the trials begin to surround me

It is then that I cry out to Jesus
I pray He will hear my voice
Then I hear Him say
I’ll show you the way
By calling you made the right choice

Suddenly it seems I am floating
In a sea of great joy and peace
In the midst of this test
He gives me His rest
My worry is transformed to ease

The lesson I share is quite simple
No matter the trouble you have
Just cry out to Him
Then you’ll always win
He will come and surround with His love

Isn’t It Enough

If He loves me why do I suffer
If He loves me why do I hurt
If He loves me why do the trials of life
Bring trouble at every turn

If He loves me why do I tremble
At what the next day will bring
If He loves me when will He come to my side
And relieve all that burns and stings

Isn’t it enough that He died for me to take away my sin
Isn’t it enough that the Spirit comes to settle your heart within
All that this life will throw at you
Will never compare to His love
So when trials and tests
Seem to steal all your rest
Come to Jesus for He is enough

If He loves me why is there heartache
If He loves me why am I poor
If he loves me why does it feel like each day
I find myself behind a door

I can’t explain it
I don’t know why
The troubles of life
Keep coming by
I’ll just press on
Giving Him praise
For he is the maker
Of all my days

Isn’t it enough that He died for me to take away my sin
Isn’t it enough that the Spirit comes to settle your heart within
All that this life will throw at you
Will never compare to His love
So when trials and tests
Seem to steal all your rest
Come to Jesus for He is enough

Press On

You may have stumbled and fallen
In your life today
But the Spirit would say press on
You may have troubles and trials
That will not go away
But the Spirit would say press on
You may think what you’ve done
Is a sin far to great
Bu the Spirit would say press on
You may think that you’ve failed’
And now it’s too late
But the Spirit would say press on

Press on toward the mark
Press on toward the goal
Jesus is waiting for you
He is not concerned
By things covered with blood
He only wants you to press on

If you doubt you are saved
But you’ve confessed His name
Then the Spirit would say press on
The enemy will try
To deny His sweet name
But the Spirit would say press on

Nothing can be done about what has been done
But something can be done about what will be done
Nothing can be done about what has been done
But something can be done about what will be done

Press on toward the mark
Press on toward the goal
Jesus is waiting for you
He is not concerned
By things covered with blood
He only wants you to press on

His Perfect Plan

I was tired and worn out
I faced the world with doubt
I didn’t know what was in store for me
I looked up to the sky
And my soul began to cry
God why have you allowed these trials for me

Then I heard His gentle voice
He said son you have a choice
The way you choose determines how you’ll do
You can face them with your doubt
Or you can lift your voice and shout
From the joy you feel that I am here with you

In the middle of the test
I will never rest
I will always walk beside you through the fire
So just trust me do not doubt
For I will bring you out
This trial has a purpose in your life

I listened to His words
And knew life could be worse
So I rose up from my feeling of despair
With God close by my side
I decided to abide
With Him until this trial disappeared

He will bring His perfect will
As He does I will be still
And see His plan begin to come about
For He will walk beside me
His Spirit is within me
There’s nothing that can stop His endless love

 

Effective Prayer

Jesus I Trust You

There are days that I don’t know
Just what God will do
It seems that it find trouble
In everything I do

Then comes disappointment
As I try to work it out
Soon I get discouraged
When things don’t turn about

Its then I hear His still small voice
Calling out my name
I try to listen closely
I’m sure this is what He said

Trust me
Trust my child
Everything is under my control
I always have a plan
And it’s always for your good
Just trust me my child
Just trust me

Once I heard those words
My spirit came alive
Despite my circumstances
I knew I was alright

I lifted up my hands
While a lifted up my voice
Knowing He was with me
Caused me to rejoice

Then with my loudest voice
I worshiped His dear name
I spoke with affirmative
These words I did proclaim

I trust you
Jesus I trust you
You have not ever failed me
You won’t leave now
From now on when the trials come
When storm clouds loom ahead
I’ll trust you
Jesus I’ll trust you
