Lord Of My Strength ~

Preview in new tab

Lord, my strength isn’t in my bones,
for they’re too weak and frail . . .
my strength is in the knowledge
Your Spirit in me will never fail.

My strength does not come,
from anything that I can do
for, I have very little power
if it does not come from You.

Lord, my strength can’t be found,
by going to the gym or spa . . .
it shows up when I exercise
to You, my holy awe.

My strength is thin and feeble,
and sometimes I cannot stand
but, when I draw close to You
I feel the power of Your hand.

Lord, my strength doesn’t measure up,
when compared to Your own . . .
my burdens would be too heavy
if I had to carry them alone!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things
through Christ which
strengtheneth me.

Fortitude ~

Sometimes my eagle wings,
get fatigued and weary . . .
especially when this world
seems so grim and dreary.

But I know I will not faint,
nor give up the flight
as long as God remains
my strength and guiding light.

Sometimes my eagles wings,
get tattered and ripped
especially when my freedoms
from me are being stripped.

But I’m determined to fly,
against the resistance
for I know to endure I need
the wings of persistence.

Daily my eagles wings,
need to be renewed . . .
so I pray to the Lord
give me the fortitude!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:31

But they that wait upon the Lord
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings
as eagles; they shall run, and
not be weary; and they shall walk,
and not faint.

Matthew 24:13

But he that shall endure
unto the end, the same
shall be saved.

When Jesus Is All You Have ~

When all you have is anguish,
when there’s nothing more to do
and all of your pain and suffering
has taken the very best from you. 

When trials turn into desperation,
when they start to overburden you
and the pressure of your troubles
you can no longer alone get through.

When your misery turns to despair,
when you feel hopelessness inside
and another raging, internal storm
you don’t have the strength to ride.

When Jesus is all you have,
when you finally come to your knees
and you give Him all your hardships
you’ll find He will meet all your needs.

For Jesus is your burden bearer,
and He will never disappoint . . .
so cast your cares upon Him
before you reach your breaking point!

~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:7

Casting all your care upon him;
for he careth for you.

God Equips Us ~

God equips His vessels,
according to His will
all He wants them to do
is to wait and be still.

He has a purpose,
for each vessels use
and until He is done
He’ll not set them loose.

God shapes His vessels,
as He sees fit
He molds each one
of them bit by bit.

He has a plan,
for forming each one
as He works into them
the image of His Son.

God equips His vessels,
with all things pleasing
as the power of Jesus
He begins releasing!

~~~~~~

Hebrews 13:21

Make you perfect in every
good work to do his will,
working in you that which is
well pleasing in his sight,
through Jesus Christ; to whom
be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

I’ve Got God’s Strength ~

I’ve got God’s strength,
it makes me strong
I trust it to keep me
sturdy all the day long.

When troubles I meet,
I face them head on
for I have the power
of His begotten Son.

I’ve got God’s might,
it makes me robust
it’s helps me each day
my life to Him entrust.

When worry I face,
I just keep hanging on
for I have the fortitude
of His resurrected Son.

I’ve got God’s strength,
each day it gets stronger . . .
it keeps my eyes on His Son
in case, He tarries longer!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:10

Finally, my brethren,
be strong in the Lord,

of his might.

It’s One Of Those Days~

It’s one of those days Lord,
You know what I mean
it’s a time when on You
all I can do is lean.

It’s a day like no other,
where I feel so helpless
it’s a time where without You
I’d be totally hopeless.

It’s one of those days Lord,
where I need You to uphold me
it’s a time when I need faith
for that which I can’t see.

It’s a day of uncertainty,
where I’m feeling distraught
it’s a time when I need You
to capture my every thought.

It’s one of those days Lord,
I know You understand . . .
It’s a time where I need
the strength of Your right hand!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 41:10

Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee;
yea, I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee with
the right hand of my righteousness.

The Power Of God’s Might ~

May you have the power,
the strength of God’s might
may you have the faith
to stay in the good fight.

May you see right through,
the schemes of the devil
may you be able to expose
the darkness of all that’s evil.

May you be able to stand,
up against the enemy
may you have the faith
to make him up and flee.

May you stand firmly,
on your faith and trust
may God with your life
you each day entrust.

May you keep God’s armor,
around you clinched tightly
so He can transfer to you
His power mighty!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:10-18

Finally, my brethren,
be strong in the Lord,

When Overwhelmed ~

When you’re overwhelmed,
with trepidation and fear
no harm will come your way
if you draw Me close and near.

For he who makes Me,
his safe, dwelling place
will be sheltered under
the wings of My grace.

When your heart is laden,
from life’s strain and stress
no injury will befall you
when into Me you press.

For he who abides in Me,
I will shield and protect
so with My peace and rest
you’ll be able to connect.

When you’re inundated,
with the problems you encounter
come to Me for your strength . . .
so with it you I may empower!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 91:14-16

Because he hath set
his love upon me,
therefore will I deliver
him: I will set him on high,
because he hath known my name.

He shall call upon me,
and I will answer him:
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him, and honour him.

With long life will I satisfy him,
and shew him my salvation.

An Upward Look ~

An upward look,
will save you
bring heaven
right into view.

Just one glace,
at Jesus alone
for your sins
to be atoned.

A vertical glimpse,
into the Light
will bring His glory
into your sight.

at His undying grace
so by faith His love
you may embrace.

An upward look,
a turn of your eyes
a repentant heart . . .
a lost soul’s cries!

God’s Awesome Power ~

Glory, Glory, Glory,
God’s awesome power
strikes in the darkness
in this gloomy hour.

Troubles may be brewing,
but His awesome love
beams down brightly
from His throne above.

Times may be testing,
but His awing peace
to all of His believers
will never fail or cease.

The tempest is a blowing,
but His amazing trust
keeps His faithful standing
against the strongest gust.

The earth is a trembling,
but His loving flock
knows He will not forsake
those clinging to the Rock.

Glory, Glory, Glory,
God’s awesome wonder
is shaking up the world
amidst His mighty thunder!

May You Be Enlightened~

May the eyes of your faith,
be so enlightened . . .
may the hope of Jesus
be in you heightened.

For there is great power,
when in God we do trust
for He has put His spirit
right into each one of us.

May your confidence,
be filled with God’s might
so the hope of your calling
may inflame and ignite.

For there is no other One,
on whom we can rely
only God our strength
and power can supply.

May the eyes of your faith,
be flooded with His light
for it is on His power
we are called to fight!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:18-21

The eyes of your understanding
being enlightened; that ye may
know what is the hope of his calling,
and what the riches of the glory
of his inheritance in the saints,

And what is the exceeding greatness
of his power to us-ward who believe,
according to the working
of his mighty power,

Which he wrought in Christ,
when he raised him from the dead,
and set him at his own right hand
in the heavenly places,

Far above all principality, and power,
and might, and dominion, and every
name that is named, not only in this
world, but also in that which is to come:

You May Be Weak ~

You may be weak,
but, God is strong
you may be anxious
but, His patience is long.

You may be troubled,
but, God is not
you may be concern
but, He is never fraught.

You may be distraught,
but, God is not frantic
you may be desperate
but, He never panics.

You may be restless,
but, God never tires
you may give up
but, He never retires.

You may be weak,
weary every day . . .
but, with God’s strength
you’ll not faint away!

He giveth power to the faint;
and to them that have no might
he increaseth strength.

When You Need A Hand ~

When you need,
a hand to hold . . .
before your knees
begin to fold.

Reach for the hand,
of God’s to clasp
and He will keep
you in His grasp.

When you need,
extra support . . .
before you legs
start to contort.

On God’s hand,
trust and lean
and His power
you will glean.

When you need,
to be bold . . .
onto God’s hand
keep a firm hold!

~~~~~

Isaiah 41:10

Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea,
I will help thee; yea,
I will uphold thee with the
right hand of my righteousness.

The Quiet Heart ~

The quiet heart,
doesn’t fret
over its worries
it dosen’t sweat.

It knows to be,
composed and collected
it knows its strength
to God is connected.

The quiet heart,
doesn’t stew
over its cares
it doesn’t spew.

It knows to trust,
to be clam and still
it knows its life
is in God’s will.

The quiet heart,
doesn’t panic
over life’s woes
it’s not frantic!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 30:15

For thus saith the Lord God,
the Holy One of Israel;
In returning and rest shall
ye be saved; in quietness and
in confidence shall be your
strength:

Oh, To Know The Power ~

Oh, to know the power,
that Jesus’ death brings
is to have the saving faith
to trust Him for all things.

For in His resurrection,
we’re eternally transformed
and by the power of His Spirit
we are forever conformed.

Oh, to know the power,
that Jesus’ life brought
is to know your sins
on the cross He bought.

For in His death springs,
new birth, new purpose
for your very soul
He endured to purchase.

Oh, to know the power,
Jesus brings to everyone
is to know being saved . . .
a new life has just begun!

~~~~~~

Philippians 3:10

That I may know him,
and the power of his
resurrection, and the
fellowship of his sufferings,
being made conformable

I Can Do Zip ~

I can do nothing,
zip, nada, nil . . .
for I alone don’t have
the will or skill.

But, with God,
I know I can do
what’s impossible
when His strength I pursue.

I can do nothing,
zero, zilch, naught . . .
for I alone don’t have
the heart or thought.

But, with God,
what is unthinkable
with His mighty power
is accomplishable.

I can do nothing,
but, God can do it all . . .
for He has the power
on which for me to call!

~~~~~~

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through
Christ which strengtheneth me.

God Does the Unfeasible ~

God does the impossible,
when He desires, when He wants to
He can do the unfeasible
in the lives of me and you.

He can change the stoniest heart,
turn it into one of flesh
reshape it until with His own
the two of them begin to mesh.

God does the unthinkable,
when He needs, when He deems
He can do the improbable
with His mercy that redeems.

He can take the most blinded,
and give them eyes to believe
the love and grace of His Son
so salvation they’ll receive.

God does the impossible,
when He opts, when He decides
He can do the unachievable
in those who in Him abide!

~~~~~~~

Luke 1:37

For with God
nothing shall be
impossible.

Jeremiah 32:17

Ah Lord God! behold,
thou hast made the heaven
and the earth by thy great
power and stretched out arm,
and there is nothing too
hard for thee:

Strength In Weakness ~

Weakness allows in us,
Jesus’ strength to flow
it makes us meek
so His power we’ll know.

It makes us proclaim,
when I’m weak I’m strong
it makes our faith firm
when trials come along.

Weakness allows in us,
Jesus’ grace to be
sufficient each day
for everything we need.

It helps us to endure,
the tests and the trials
for His grace is the key
to our spiritual vitals.

Our weakness keeps,
Jesus’ grace moving . . .
so His strength in us
can continue improving!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:9

And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect
in weakness. Most gladly therefore
will I rather glory in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Feeling Sluggish~

Feeling sluggish,
in a slump . . .
can’t seem to get
over that hump?

Then turn to Jesus,
so He can restore
your joy and strength
just as before.

Feeling blah,
a little lackluster
daily fortitude
you can’t muster?

Then take a hold,
of God’s mighty hand
so He can help you
rise up and stand.

Feeling dull,
lost your sharpness
then God’s power . . .
you’ll need to harness!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:10

Finally, my brethren,
be strong in the Lord,
and in the power of his might.

Peter 5:6

Humble yourselves therefore
under the mighty hand of God,
that he may exalt you in due time:

I Have God’s Power ~

I have God’s power,
it’s right inside of me
it blesses me with faith
for things I can’t see.

It dissipates the doubt,
evaporates the fear
it allows me to believe
my God is always near.

I have God’s power,
He gave it to me the day
when to His Son . . .
I gave my heart away.

It lifted the darkness,
revealing His True Light
giving me the ability
to trust in His holy might.

I have God’s power,
to believe without seeing
it fills me with such hope
tis why it’s so freeing!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:19

And what is the exceeding
greatness of his power to
us-ward who believe,

Soar~

Eagles wings,
oh, how they soar
above the world’s
menacing roar.

Glide in faith,
on the air of trust
grows not weary
against the thrust.

Eagles wings,
strong and sure
torrid weather
they do endure.

Fainting not,
upon resistance
fly on hope
to go the distance.

Eagles wings,
mount and rise
above the fear . . .
before their eyes!

~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:31

But they that wait
upon the Lord shall
renew their strength;
they shall mount up
with wings as eagles;
they shall run,
and not be weary;
and they shall walk,
and not faint.

God Is Mightier ~

God is mightier than the battle,
you are facing right now . . .
He’s greater than your struggle
your defeat He won’t allow.

For His peace will overrule,
all your inner conflict
and His mercy will surpass
the hurt life can inflict.

God is stronger than the burden,
that is weighing you down
He’s more powerful than the storm
that’s swirling all around.

His balm is ever soothing,
it will heal all of your pain
His touch is life transforming
when in His hands you remain.

God is mightier than the battle,
that today you have to face
His sufficiency is copious
for abundant is His grace!

~~~~~~~~

God’s Power Generator ~

I’ve got God’s power,
it makes me resilient
it’s energizing the faith
I need to be persistent.

It’s galvanizing,
supplying inside of me
the fuel to believe
in what I can’t see.

I’ve got God’s strength,
it’s alive and well
in my heart it grows
in my soul it swells.

It’s electrifying,
it’s mighty and strong
it sparks me to hope
in God all my life long.

I’ve got God’s power,
in me it generates
my faith and trust
it daily regulates!
