Your Joyfulness ~

Your joyfulness to Jesus,
is of great concern
He doesn’t want you troubled
at every turn.

Your faith to Jesus,
is invaluable
He doesn’t want your fear
to be palpable.

You hope to Jesus,
is indispensable
He doesn’t want your doubt
to be indefensible.

Your trust to Jesus,
is immeasurable
He doesn’t want your heart
to be vulnerable.

Your joyfulness to Jesus,
is of great concern
for He wants you to be fruitful
until the day He returns!

John 15:11

“These things have I spoken unto you,
that my joy might remain in you,

Jesus Prays For Us ~

When my words,
I cannot form
and to God my pleas
I cannot inform.

That’s when Jesus,
steps right in
with moans coming
from deep within.

When I can’t even,
begin to pray
all though I have
a lot to say.

That’s when Jesus,
for me advocates
and my prayers to God
He formulates.

When my words,
can’t form my needs
that’s when Jesus . . .
for me intercedes!

Lean ~

Some days when I feel,
I’ve lost faith’s composure
I stop and lean closer
on my Savior’s shoulder.

I lay my head there,
letting it rest for a while
until my trust in Him
I once again compile.

Some days when I feel,
tired and down right beat
I stop and lean closer
to my Savior’s feet.

It’s there were I lay,
my burden and my care
until unto my hope
I’m again made aware.

Some days when I feel,
I’m about to fall apart . . .
I stop and lean closer
to my Savior’s heart!

Faithful Is He ~

Jesus will do it,
He is faithful
He wants you to be
to Him grateful.

Jesus will fulfill it,
He is loyal
He will help you
through your trial.

Jesus will perform it,
He is dependable
so don’t you fret
He is reliable

Jesus will deliver it,
He is committed
He wants you to Him
fully submitted.

Jesus will do it,
He is trustworthy
in every single thing
He is praiseworthy!

When God Looks Down ~

When God looks down,
on us He sees . . .
the work of His Son
and not our sleaze.

He sees beyond,
our sinful lusts
for He sees His Son
in whom He trusts.

For God gave His Son,
the gift of life . . .
for He knew with sin
we’d always have strife.

He sees the grace,
of a dying Savior
mixed with His mercy
pity and favor.

When God looks down,
at every one
He sees our worth
through His Son!

hope is found
I know in Him

The Light of My Life ~

Today I am singing,
though outside it is gray
I can still see the Light . . .
though the sun’s tucked away.

For the Light that shines in me,
makes my heart radiate
though there maybe clouds
my joy they can’t alienate.

Jesus is that Light,
the song of my salvation
and I don’t need the sun
to sing out my elation.

For the Light of Jesus,
lights up both night and day
nothing stops it from shinning
on the Truth, Life and Way.

Today I am singing,
though outside it is dreary
the Light of my life. . .
is all I need to be cheery!

~~~~~~~

John 8:12

“Then spake Jesus again unto them,
saying, I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk
in darkness, but shall have the
light of life.”

with hearts laden down

My Shepherd knows me,
and I know His voice
so I follow Him . . .

When I need comfort,
on His staff I lean
so His peace and calm
my heart can glean.

When in a valley,
He guides me along
when I get weary
He makes me strong.

When a mountain,
I have to face

more of His grace.

The Lord’s my Shepherd,
He knows me oh, so well
I choose to follow Him . . .
so not to end up in hell!

When I’m Restless ~

When I am restless,
in need of a break
I go to the only One
who never will forsake.

As I lean into Him,
He rests inside of me
all my anxiousness
on Him, I set free.

He takes my cares,
releases the strain
any worries I have
He begins to drain.

A sense of renewal,
stirs within my soul
over my anxieties
He resumes control.

When I am restless,
to Jesus I will go . . .
for He is the only One
who my breath can slow!

with His love and grace!

I’m Never Alone ~

I once thought,
I could do it alone
but, then I invited Jesus
to come into my home.

Now He resides,
inside of these walls
He’s always around
when His name I call.

for, on Him my worries
I am free to release.

with joy and good cheer.
