Trusting Jesus

When my joy turns into sorrow
Under burdens that arise
Days of worry come upon me
As a tear forms in my eye
Sadness could come overwhelm me
If I let these thoughts go on
But I’ve learned to seek my Savior
When my troubles are prolonged

When my peace has been disrupted
Turmoil starts to swirl around
My mind wanders out of wanting
To find rest from troub’ling sounds
Doubt could eas’ly overtake me
If I let these thoughts go on
But I’ve learned to trust my Savior
He will keep me from all harm

Trusting Jesus in my trials
Trusting Jesus in my doubts
Trusting Jesus when I worry
He will turn my life about
When the hard times come upon me
There’s no reason to get down
I have learned to trust in Jesus
Jesus makes my life abound

When I start to doubt His wisdom
My life seems to be off track
I can’t seem to find the answer
To the questions that I ask
Storms of life are gathered ‘round me
Whirlwinds howling in my ear
I have learned to trust in Jesus
In the midst of all my fears

Trusting Jesus in the thunder
Trusting Jesus in the rain
Trusting Jesus when I cannot find
My way back home again
He is always watching over me
He is always by my side
I can rest with calm assurance
When in Jesus I abide

I will trust Him
I will trust Him
I will trust the Lord
Even in the darkest storm
I’ll stand upon His word
I will trust Him
I will trust Him
Each and every day
I will give my life to Him
I will trust the Lord

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

Always and Forever

God’s been good to me
Always
The circumstances may look bleak
My health my not be good
My finances may struggle
But God has been good to me
Always

God’s been merciful to me
Always
He delivers me from evil
He holds me tightly in His arms
He reassures me with His peace
He has been merciful to me
Always

God’s been gracious to me
Always
He has forgiven me countless times
He has overlooked my faults
He has provided when I have failed
He has been gracious to me
Always

Even when I cannot see it
He is good
Even when I cannot understand
He is merciful
Even when I lose my way
He is gracious
Always and forever
He loves me

So when I’m down and out
When life seems upside down
When sorrow or sickness come
When darkness is in my life
I will still praise Him
I will still worship Him
I will still trust Him

Because Always and Forever
He loves me

Implicit Trust

I trust the Lord
Implicitly
No doubt
No confusion
No wondering

Many times
It’s not a matter of what
Or How
Or Why

It’s a matter of when
The answer will come

It’s in His hand
And on His schedule
Because
He knows what’s best
For me.

So I learn to wait
Wait for healing
Wait for deliverance
Wait for understanding
Wait for Him
 
And in my waiting
I praise Him
I rejoice
In His mercy
And grace

What an awesome God
I serve
He gives so much
To me
When I lift up
My prayer
He hears me
Yes  He hears me
What an awesome God
I serve

The Lord Knows

When you’re feeling sick
And you’re stuck in your bed
You pray but the answer is slow
You wonder if God
Has heard your request
I can honestly say the Lord knows

When trouble surrounds you
And you see no way out
You pray but the answer is slow
As the trouble gets worse
You question His love
I am confident that the Lord knows

He knows every pain, every hurt, every stain
He knows every doubt, every tear
He knows every sorrow and every heartache
He knows every doubt, every fear

Hold onto His promise
Don’t ever let go
Because no matter what comes your way
The Lord knows

When doubt settles in
And you cannot feel God
You pray but the answer is slow
Time passes by you
The days and then weeks
You wonder if God really knows

These are the times
When our faith is tested
This trial will help us to grow
We must trust in Him
And endure to the end
You can be sure the Lord knows

He knows every pain, every hurt, every stain
He knows every doubt, every tear
He knows every sorrow and every heartache
He knows every doubt, every fear

Hold onto His promise
Don’t ever let go
Because no matter what comes your way
The Lord knows
