The Voices of Thanksgiving ~

May the voice of thanksgiving,
be heard joyfully today . . .
may words of our gratefulness
be sung merrily as we pray.

May our heartfelt thoughts,
offer God His due praise
may our indebtedness
to Him we constantly raise.

May the voice of gratitude,
be heard loud and clear
may our humble thanks
be detected by every ear.

May our praise reflect,
words of our gratification
may God hear and see
our sincere appreciation.

May the voice of thanksgiving,
be our joyful noise today . . .
may our words of gratitude
be heard by God everyday!

Prayer Heals All Our Wounds ~

Prayer heals all our wounds,
releases the hurt inside
prayer brings peace . . .
when to God we confide.

Prayer heals all heartache,
mends the brokenness
prayer restores and renews
it brings back wholeness.

Prayer heals all anguish,
releases despair and grief
prayer brings restoration
grants our soul sweet relief.

Prayer heals all suffering,

when to God we appeal.

Prayer heals all our wounds,
releases the hurt inside

A Thankful, Grateful Heart ~

Lord, give me a thankful heart,
one always appreciative
one that to all your blessings
is attuned and meditative.

Let it be a heart filled,
each day full of praise
let it show my gratitude
as my thanksgiving I raise.

Lord, let me have a heart,
truly thankful for all things
no matter what in my life
You should choose to bring.

Let me have a heart flowing
with the rivers of Your peace
so my appreciation to You
I may continually release.

Lord, give me a thankful heart,
one that is forever hopeful
let it be the heart of one . . .
who to You is steadily grateful!

O give thanks unto the Lord;
for he is good: because his

In The Wilderness of My Soul ~

Lord, in the wilderness of my soul,
there are valleys deep and low . . .
and sometimes I wander in them
not sure the direction I should go.

In my doubt I meet with despair,
and my thoughts turn to giving up
for in my desperation . . .
I don’t see Your grace in my cup.

Lord, in the wilderness of my soul,
there are mountains high and wide
and sometimes all I want to do
is just to run away and hide.

In my fear I meet with dread,
with each obstacle I come to
but, I know I must get past them
if I want to get closer to You.

Lord, there’s a wilderness in my soul,
a vast land of empty spaces
long roads for me to travel on
with plenty of rough places.

But, I know I’m on the path,
leading me straight to You . . . .
and with Your strength and help
I know I’ll make it through!

~~~~~

Luke 3:4

“The voice of one crying
in the wilderness,
Prepare ye the way of the Lord,
make his paths straight.”

God Will Always Mend ~

I have lived a life of losses,
with hardship as my friend . . .
but I’ve come to understand
how God will always mend.

For there is not a problem,
too great for Him to take
not a soul He can’t change
regenerate or remake.

There isn’t a broken heart,
Jesus cannot repair . . .
not a soul He won’t save
from the depth of despair.

For there is not a worry,
which for Him is too small
no trouble is too imposing
for He came to bear them all.

So no matter what your loss,
no matter where you’ve been
let God repair and mend . . .
the effects of pain and sin!

~~~~~~

Psalm 34:18

The Lord is nigh unto them
that are of a broken heart;
and saveth such as be of
a contrite spirit.

He Heals The Soul ~

He repairs hearts,
fills in the holes
mends the spirit
heals the soul.

His love reaches,
the deep recesses
where painful thoughts
hide and depresses.

He gives grace,
to those in need
His tender mercies
vastly exceed.

He steadies the nerves,
calms down the mind
so our fragile past
we can leave behind.

Jesus fills in the hole,
He’s the missing piece . . .
He is the only One
who can bring true peace!

~~~~~~

Philippians 4:7

“And the peace of God,
which passeth
all understanding,
shall keep your
hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus.”

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.

Shine Your Light ~

Your light can shine,
without saying a word
volumes it can speak
without being heard.

The light of your smile,
says I’ll brighten your day
the light of your touch
says I’ll help show the way.

The light in your eyes,
says Jesus loves you
the light of your hug
says I’ll stay with you too.

The light of your mind,
says I’ll show you mercy
the light of your tears
says to God were all worthy.

You don’t have to say,
not a word of any kind
just let Jesus’ light shine
so His love others may find!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:16

“Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

Autumn Blessings ~

Autumn brings the soul relief,
as hot Summer days slip to an end
God sent the season to weary hearts
so He can restore, repair and mend.

Just as with the Autumn winds,
there comes a new refreshing rain
God sent the season for fraying hearts
so they can mature, grow and gain.

Unlike the Autumn trees,
that shed their changing leaves
God sent the season for wary hearts
so to Him they’d adhere and cleave.

The Autumn sun is slow to climb,
dipping much earlier into the night
God sent the season for sleepy hearts
to rise, shine and awake in His light.

God gave to us the Autumn season,
so we could have a respite and rest . . .
for it is the season for our beset souls
to see how much we are truly blessed!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 16:9

“Therefore my heart is glad,
and my glory rejoiceth:
my flesh also shall rest
in hope.”

A Soul Conquering~

It takes courage,
a spirit willing to go the length
it takes confidence
letting God supply the strength.

It takes commitment,
a determination to do God’s will
it takes patience
a willingness to wait and be still.

It takes persistence,
a resolve to keep pressing on
it takes diligence
for the faithful race to be won.

It takes perseverance,
a heart willing to go the distance
it takes a dedicated mind
able to handle the resistance.

It takes focus,
eyes always kept on the goal
it takes Jesus . . .
to have a conquering soul!

~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:14

I press toward
the mark
for the prize of the high
calling of God
in Christ Jesus.

Hebrews 12:1-2

Wherefore seeing we also are
compassed about with so great
a cloud of witnesses, let us lay
aside every weight, and the sin
which doth so easily beset us,
and let us run with patience
the race that is set before us,

Looking unto Jesus the author
and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before
him endured the cross, despising
the shame, and is set down at the
right hand of the throne of God.

Keep Me Steadfast ~

Lord, keep me steadfast,
in my pursuit to abide in Thee
keep my heart faithful
so Your love will dwell in me.

Lord, keep me patient,
in my quest to walk like Thee
keep my feet established
so Your Spirit can lead me.

Lord, keep me faithful,
in my search to become like Thee
keep my branches trimmed
so Your fruit will mature in me.

Lord, keep me loyal,
in my endeavor to follow Thee
keep my mind established
so Your peace will be seen in me.

Lord, keep me steadfast,
so my works will glorify Thee
keep my faith abounding
so Your Spirit can encourage me!

~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15:58

Therefore, my beloved brethren,
be ye stedfast, unmoveable,
always abounding in the work
of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know
that your labour is not
in vain in the Lord.

A Sound Heart ~

A sound heart,
doesn’t miss a beat
it lays its cares
at Jesus’ feet.

It puts its trust,
into His hands
it faithfully knows
to follow His plans.

A sound heart,
knows to pray
it’s at peace
night or day.

It allows Jesus,
to live in it
so to be guided
by His Spirit.

A sound heart,
is not shameful . . .
for the Word of God
it is grateful!

“Let my heart be sound
in thy statutes; that
I be not ashamed.

Daily Renewed ~

I was consumed,
but not destroyed
I was unsettled
but not paranoid.

I was frightened,
but not horrified
I was alarmed
but not terrified.

I was drained,
but not depleted
I was derailed
but not defeated.

I was shattered,
but not broken
I was stunned
but not shaken.

I was afflicted,
but not subdued
for my inner man . . .
was daily renewed!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

For which cause we faint not;
but though our outward man perish,
yet the inward man is
renewed day by day.

For our light affliction,
which is but for a moment,
worketh for us a far more
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, Tell Me What You See ~

Lord search my heart,
tell me what You see . . .
let me know if any evil
is still left inside of me.

Take a real close look,
for the sin that’s hidden
any idols I hold onto
keeping me yet smitten.

Once You point them out,
let me get rid of . . .
all that still keeps me
from Your prefect love.

Then put me on the path,
to the everlasting way
so that I may follow it
whole heatedly every day.

Lord search my heart,
tell me what you see . . .
let me know how I can live
a life more pleasing to Thee!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 139:23-24

“Search me, O God, and know my heart:
try me, and know my thoughts:

And see if there be any wicked way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.”

Cling ~

Cling
when you’re heart
is broken
Cling
when no words
can be spoken.

Cling
when you’re downcast
and depressed
Cling
when you’re troubled
and harassed.

Cling
when you’re stricken
and afflicted
Cling
when you’re confused
and conflicted.

Cling
when you’re defeated
and overburdened
Cling
when you’re weak
and disheartened.

Cling
when you’re worried
and tormented
Cling
when you’re restless
and discontented.

Cling
when you’re feeling
sad and blue
Cling
when you don’t know . . .
what else to do!

God’s Saving Light ~

If I could gather,
all the rays of God’s light
every blinded eyes . . .
would be given a new sight.

For within each beam,
the blinded eye would see
how the grace of Jesus
came to set them free.

If I could reap,
every ounce of God’s light
everyone would be full
of the power of His might.

For within each burst,
His love would crystallize
and His mercy for them
they would personalize.

If I could gather,
each beam and every ray
I’d forever shine God’s glory
on the Truth and the Way!

~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:6

” For God, who commanded the light
to shine out of darkness,
hath shined in our hearts,
to give the light of the knowledge
of the glory of God
in the face of Jesus Christ.”

Grace and Faith ~

Grace and faith,
brings true liberation
for, it’s the only way
to finding salvation.

There’s no other path,
that we can take
only Jesus can seal
our eternal fate.

Grace and faith,
fits just like a glove
for it’s the greatest gift
of God’s merciful love.

There’s no other road,
for us to travel on
there’s only one way
to God and His Son.

Grace and faith,
nothing else to do
but to believe . . .
Jesus died for you!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:8

For by grace are ye saved
through faith;
and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:

King James Version

Wresting With My Spirit ~

Sometimes with my spirit,
I use to wrestle with . . .
I’d toss and I’d turn over
whether God was just a myth.

I tussled with the thoughts,
of God’s mercy and His grace
I contended with the fact
that I’d ever see His face.

Sometimes with my heart,
I’d have a great debate
over whether heaven
would be my eternal fate.

I mulled around in my mind,
if Jesus died for me
and whether from my sins
I’d ever really be set free.

 I use to wrestle with,
the very enemy of my soul . . .
but, now to his attacks I’m aware
and refuse to give him control!

A Shout of Joy~

Sing Praises used with permission IBible Verses

Early in the morning,
before the sun is ablaze
give a shout of pure joy
a song of heartfelt praise.

Make a sweet melody,
and show your gratitude
sing out your praises
with a joyful attitude.

Early in the morning,
before the sun begins to rise
remember His loving-kindness
under the darken skies.

Clap your hands together,
lift your arms up in praise
give your day to the Lord
thank Him for His ways.

While the dew is still set,
on the morning lawn
while the house is dark
before there is a new dawn.

Show your thankfulness,
to the Lord up above
lift up your heart-song
and praise Him for His love.

When your day is over,
as the sun dims its blazing light
thank God for His faithfulness
all though the starry night!

~~~~~~

Psalm 92:1-2
King James Version

“It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
and to sing praises to Your name, O Most
High; To declare Your lovingkindness in the
morning, and Your faithfulness every night.”
