God Our Stronghold ~

When God is our stronghold,
we will not faint
when He is our refuge
we’ll trust and wait.

When God is our rock,
we will be strong
when He is our fortress
we’ll sing a new song.

When God is our hedge,
we will be protected
when He is our salvation
we’ll never be rejected.

When God is our deliverer,
we will never fall back
when He is our shield
we’ll win satan’s attack.

When God is our strength,
we will not be shaken
When He is our shelter . . .
we’ll not be forsaken!

~~~~~~

Psalm 18:2

“The Lord is my rock,
and my fortress,
and my deliverer;
my God, my strength,
in whom I will trust;
my buckler, and the horn
of my salvation,
and my high tower.”

God Is My Strength ~

God is my strength,
on which I daily rely . . .
for, there’s no other way
I could ever get by.

Without Him I would be,
trembling with fear . . .
but, instead He’s my Rock
who is always near.

God is my Stronghold,
He too is my Fortress
I go to Him first . . .
whenever I feel stress.

For in His High Tower,
is my shield of trust . . .
and for my salvation
it’s to Him I entrust.

God is my refuge,
in Him I’m secure . . .
He gives me the faith
to persist and endure!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:1-2

The Lord is my rock,
and my fortress,
and my deliverer;
my God, my strength,
in whom I will trust;
my buckler, and the horn
of my salvation,
and my high tower.

Enlarge Me Lord ~

Enlarge me Lord,
deepen my faith in You
for I am a witness
to all You can do.

You’ve helped me before,
I trust You will again
for Your mercy for me
You cannot contain.

Enlarge me Lord,
expand my faith in You
for without Your power
there’s nothing I can do.

I know You hear me,
when Your name I call
as to You my prayers
from my mouth fall.

Enlarge me Lord,
my strength increase
so my faith in You . . .
I can boldly release!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 4:1

Hear me when I call,
O God of my righteousness:

exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

While we look not at the things which
are seen, but at the things which are
not seen: for the things which are seen
are temporal; but the things which
are not seen are eternal.

Lord, Take My Eagle Wings ~

Lord, take my eagle wings,
give them renewed strength
so I may fly the distance
no matter how far the length.

Help them to soar upon,
the winds of trusting You
give them the patience
til You tell me what to do.

Help them not to get weary,
so they will never tire
when with obstacles they meet
promise to lift them higher.

Help them to understand,
when to wait, when to fly
give them wisdom knowing
on their own they needn’t try.

Lord, give my eagle wings,
a boost of Your power . . .
for You may call for me
to take off at any hour!

as my cares I release.

without His fortitude
I can’t do anything.

it keeps me keeping on
in the faithful fight.

Through Jesus I have,
a hope that’s complete
for all of my worries
I lay at His feet.

My strength is the Lord’s joy,
His joy is my power
for Jesus gives to me . . .
the faith to not cower!

for the joy of the Lord is your strength.

With God You Can Do It ~

When you feel like,
you’re not enough
and the road ahead
seems way to tough.

Turn straight to God,
He’ll give you strength
to go the distance
no matter the length.

When at first you think,
you just can’t do it
and before you start
you just want to quit.

Know that God,
is right there with you
and with His guidance
you’ll know what to do.

When you start to think,
the climb you can’t make
ask God for the power
to do what it takes!

Strength Everlasting ~

Everlasting strength,
the Lord gives to us
when it is in Him . . .
that we put our trust.

Strength to be courageous,
to be bold and dauntless
strength that will make us
in all things fearless.

Strength that never gives up,
nor never gives in
to the demands of evil
or the temptation of sin.

Strength for the unlikely,
the hard and impossible
strength to do the things
once unimaginable.

Strength everlasting,
is given to those who trust
a promise from the Lord . . .
to everyone of us!

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!

I can do all things

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.

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,

be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

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

in case, He tarries longer!

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:

you each day entrust.

His power mighty!

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.

When You Need A Hand ~

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

Reach for the hand,

and He will keep
you in His grasp.

and His power
you will glean.

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