My Daily Praise I Raise~

Each new day I rise to,
I start it off with praise
to the Lord my God . . .
my gratitude I raise.

I thank Him daily,
for all He has supplied
I can’t tell Him enough
how much I am obliged.

My gratitude is ongoing,
as I go about my day
for the many blessings
He showers on my way.

I’m grateful for His mercy,
His every good, perfect gift
unto my Lord and Savior
my thankfulness I lift.

As I thank God for being,
my powerful, wise creator
my gratefulness to Him . . .
grows ever-more greater!

onto Whom we cleave.

Garments of kindness,

we need to put on
so we can reflect
the love of His Son.

Garments of humbleness,

and forgiving one another,
if any man have a quarrel
against any: even as Christ
forgave you, so also do ye.

Through It All ~

Through the mountain,
God led me . . .
through the hardships
He supplied me.

Through the storms,

Through the desert,
God guided me . . .

He shouldered me.

Through the wilderness,
God was with me . . .
through all of my doubts
He waited for me!

My Soul’s Delight ~

My soul delights in those,
who trust and wait on Me
it gives My heart pleasure
when blind eyes start to see.

They are My faithful servants,
to whom I will uphold
the elect I have chosen
to gather into My fold.

I have poured out My Spirit,
on those who are the meek
for on Me their sights are set
and My will they do seek.

They call me their Lord,
I call them My sheep
they know to follow Me
for their souls I will keep.

Into righteousness I call them,
in My glory they’ll rise and sing
behold all things come to pass
things new to them I will bring!

pleasure of his will,

Wisely Walking ~

Father I thank You,
today for Your grace
and the wisdom I need
to wisely run the race.

For, I know of the evil,
I will witness today
and to walk cautiously
must be my mainstay.

Father I thank you,
today for Your direction
for the wisdom to have
in the world no connection.

For, though times are dark,
You make it clear to me
how living like a fool
I do not want to be.

Father I thank you,
for helping me to walk wise
so that I can be mindful
of satan’s traps and lies!

Soaking Up All Of God’s Peace ~

Sometimes I want to stand,
on top of the highest hill
raise my hands to the Lord
tell Him how I really feel.

I want to shout my love out,
hear His echo back at me
I want to close my eyes tight
hoping His glory I might see.

Sometimes I want to sit,
on the tallest mountain top
sing my praises to the Lord
and never let them stop.

I want to shower on Him,
my heartfelt gratitude
I want Him to see in me
for Him a thankful attitude.

Sometimes I just want to stand,
soak up all of God’s peace . . .
I want to raise my hands up high
and my praise to Him release!

You Can’t Take It With You ~

Hearses don’t pull trailers,
filled with earthly treasures
they don’t tow your assets
or your worldly pleasures.

They don’t carry the living,
with their prized possessions
they only bring along coffins
to the grave side processions.

You can’t take it with you,
all you’ve got will turn to rust
what you adore and cherish
will be left behind in the dust.

You can’t haul away your stuff,
there’s no place in heaven for it
one day all you own and love
you will be forced to forfeit.

There is no trailer hitch,
attached to that black hearse
all your valuables down here
others one day will disperse.

You can’t take it with you,
so you might as well let it go
for where your heart is . . .
to the world it will show!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:20-21

“But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,
where neither moth
nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not
break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.”

Tears Fall From Up In Heaven ~

Tears fill up their ducts,
with deep sorrow they fall from
for His eyes see the sadness . . .
of the days still yet to come.

They well within their rims,
till they begin to overflow
for His eyes see the grief . . .
of what only He could know.

They trickle down His cheeks,
as they slowly start to run
for His eyes see the world . . .
without the love of His Son.

They flood from their brims,
and puddle onto the floor
for His eyes see the day . . .
this world will be no more.

Tears fall from up in heaven,
like a thunderous mighty rain
so many still live their lives . . .
in futileness and in vain.

God cries for the unsaved,
the lost, the unforgiven . . .
His tears reflect those who reject
what His Son has so freely given!

How oft did they provoke him

God took my broken life,
healed and made it whole
empty His love and mercy
right into this sinner’s soul.

He rescued me from this world,
the direction I was headed in
helped me to grasp to its ways
only lead to death and sin.

He gave me a heart of flesh,
removed the stony one
showed me the way to Him
was only through His Son.

He gave me ears to hear,
the eyes I needed to see
so I’d know how much . .
He was in love with me.

God took this sinner’s soul,
once doomed and hopeless
saving me from going . . .

at the works of His hand
how all came together

I worship Him and marvel,
as I gaze out into space
in awe I stand in wonder
of His mercy and His grace.

I tremble and I shake,
my understanding fails me
for, it’s hard to comprehend
all I can and cannot see.

I fear God for one reason,
but, it’s not that I am fearful
I fear Him because I know . . .
He is mightily powerful!

O, Taste and See ~

I’ve tasted the goodness,
from God’s banquet table
I’ve feasted on His Word
and now it’s a daily staple.

I’ve supped on the truth,
with my Lord and Savior
and now His Way of Life
I’ve come to truly savor.

I’ve been to the buffet,
of God’s benevolence
and now I understand
the meaning of excellence.

I’ve had my hunger satisfied,
by my faith supplier
and now I know just who is
my daily bread Provider.

I’m blessed beyond measure,
for I’m full of God’s fullness
now that I have feasted . . .
upon all of His goodness!

Psalm 34:8

“O taste and see
that the Lord is good:
blessed is the man
that trusteth in him.”

Sing To God Your Praise ~

O, sing of God’s goodness,
sing of His grace . . .
sing about His mercies
for all to embrace.

Sing in the morning,
sing into the night
sing of God’s wonder
sing of His saving light.

Sing to God’s honor,
sing of His name
sing how forever
He’s always the same.

Sing in the storm,
sing in the calm
sing about His peace
sing of His healing balm.

Give God His glory,
give Him your praise
O, sing of the Savior
for you He has raised!

Psalm 96:1-3


“O sing
unto the Lord a new song:
sing unto the Lord,all the earth.
Sing unto the Lord,bless his name;
shew forth his salvation
from day to day.
Declare his glory among
the heathen, his wonders
among all people.

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.”
