By Faith

I thank you for the faith Lord
That you have given me
In all my deepest valleys
This faith has lifted me
When I have faced a battle
This faith has seen me through
When mountains loom before mefaith
This faith knows what to do

When I was just a wee lad
You gave this faith to me
I fell through broken ice Lord
Was drowning underneath
My best friend threw a branch Lord
You have me faith to reach
He pulled me out to safety
This faith had rescued me

Through teen years into twenties
I drifted for from you
I thought I’d lost this faith Lord
It seemed I forgot you
But one day faith arose in me
I prayed a prayer so true
I asked you to come in my heart
My soul was now rescued

Two years later I came ba k
To visit my best friend
Through faith you led me to a girl
My life you did suspend
I left my job and traveled back
To start up a new life
By faith I left my world behind
This girl became my wife

By faith we’ve gone through battles
Some scars are very deep
We’ve clung to hope in you Lord
Our souls you always keep
When every battle turns out good
We know you have supplied
By faith we once again dug in
And you have given life

Then cancer came to test us
And tried to bring us down
Our trust in you has risen
By faith we’ve overcome
Now we know forever
No matter what may come
If we just walk with you Lord
You’ll bring us safely home

Thank you for the faith Lord
That you have given me
When I look back on my life
It’s blessings I do see
And when I face the trials
That may come down my way
I’ll simply use this faith Lord
To make it through the day

Return to Jesus

i was raised on Jesus
The church a second home
Throughout my high school years
i hardly ever roamed

I then got into crowds
That drew me far away
And i became a rebel
To sin I deeply strayed

But Jesus kept on calling
Throughout those rebel years
Til finally I returned to Him
And shedded many tears

He never will give up on us
He always wants pur hearts
If you have fallen far away
I pray that you’ll restart

Restart your trust in Jesus
He’s always by your side
Restart your trip to heaven
With Him you will abide

In response to the daily prompt Rebel

Trusting Your Way

Day after day I’ll walk with you
Letting you lead the way
I know you see
What’s best for me
From your arms I’ll never stray

Day after day I will trust you
Even when times get quite hard
In every storm
You keep me from harm
Your presence will guide my way

Trusting you always
Trusting your grace
Trusting your mercy
Giving you praise
Walking with you
All of my days
Trusting in you, Lord
Trusting your way

Day after day I will listen
I long to hear your voice
Speak softly now
Please teach me how
To live where I’ll always rejoice

And when the test comes calling
When doubts start to cloud my mind
I’ll turn to you, my Savior
I’ll trust in you all the time

Trusting you always
Trusting your grace
Trusting your mercy
Giving you praise
Walking with you
All of my days
Trusting in you, Lord
Trusting your way

Cancer Testimony Video

Several of you have asked for me to post this video, so here it is.  This is from our service at church Sunday night, April 22.  This service went well and we had an opportunity tom pray for several who were sick at the end of the service.  It was a blessed time in the Lord.

I am going to post this on both of my blogs, so if you are following both, you will see this on my God’s Maintenance Man blog as well.

I pray it blesses you!
