To God Be The Glory ~

To God Be the Glory,
this is why I write . . .
to His honor
for His delight.

Sharing my needs,
up lifting yours
so together our hope
we can explore.

To God be the glory,
to Him be the praise
for knowing His Word
to following His ways.

Praying to God,
learning to be still
so we can understand
His most perfect will.

To God be the glory,
this is why I do write . . .
using the grace given me
to shine His saving light!

The Mercy of God is Powerful ~

The Mercy of God is potent,
it can loosen every chain
holding one of His children
in the torment of their pain.

The mercy of God is powerful,
it breaks the sinful binds
it restores and it can heal
His children’s hearts and minds.

The mercy of God is delivering,
it weakens wickedness’ grasp
it gives His children strength
from satan’s hold, to unclasp.

The mercy of God is freeing,
it separates good from evil
His children it will save
from the schemes of the devil.

The mercy of God is bountiful,
it’s sufficient and plenteous
His children know intimately
just how much, He is gracious!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 103:8

“The Lord is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.”

In His Strength ~

When troubles waters,
start to churn and swirl
before my faith . . .
can begin to spiral.

To my Lord,
I take my distress
and with His strength
I am blessed.

When my worries,
start to push and pull
before my faith . . .
becomes void and null.

To my Lord,
I take my praise
and in His strength
I am not fazed.

When troubled waters,
are all I can see . . .
I pray to my Lord
to strengthen me!

~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:13

“I can do all things
through Christ
which strengtheneth me.”

God Makes Things Happen ~

God makes things happen,
in His time, at His will
He can make the wind’s gust
or He can cause them to still.

He can alter the course,
of the season’s of the year
He can make them painless
or cause in them great fear.

God, makes things happen,
nothing is a coincidence
everything He does . . .
is of great significance.

He makes kingdoms rise,
He causes them to tumble
He can withdrawn His wisdom
or give it to the humble.

God, makes things happen,
in His time, at His will
there is no one else who has
His power, or His skill!

~~~~~

Daniel 2:20-21

“Daniel answered and said,
Blessed be the name of God
for ever and ever:
for wisdom and might are his:

And he changeth the times
and the seasons: he removeth kings,
and setteth up kings: he giveth
wisdom unto the wise,
and knowledge to them
that know understanding:”

God’s In Control ~

When I look out at the world,
and all God has created . . .
I see everything He’s made
though this fact often is debated.

But, I will not contend,
with what I know to be true
for the earth and the heavens
Lord, I know belong to You.

When I see all the beauty,
I know it’s not man-made
to all the other theories
I cannot be swayed.

For, I know God is powerful,
and what is His will, will be
though man fights this reality
in the end the truth, all will see.

When I look out at the world,
I see the earth, to us on loan
and I believe with all my soul
God controls it from His throne!

~~~~~~~

1 Chronicles 29:11

“Thine, O Lord is the greatness,
and the power, and the glory,
and the victory, and the majesty:
for all that is in the heaven
and in the earth is thine;
thine is the kingdom,
O Lord, and thou art
exalted as head above all.”

Decluttering ~

Today I’m decluttering,
my heart and my mind
dumping all the things
I keep dragging behind.

I’ll be getting rid of,
any bitterness I see
and if there be envy
I’ll purge it right out of me.

I’ll toss away the guilt,
dispose of the shame
free any need to point
to others any blame.

I’ll remove all the fear,
eradicate any doubt
eliminate the dread
so to block anxiety out.

Today, I’m decluttering,
so I can stay on track
I’ll destroy the dead weight
that’s been holding me back!

~~~~~

Hebrews 12:1

“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,”

Jesus To The Rescue ~

Lord, today I’m feeling,
a little off course
like a ship without . . .
a navigation source.

I feel like I’m drifting,
in a sea of doubt
and I need Your guidance
to find my way out.

Things are a little foggy,
my head is feeling light
and these waves of fear
I’ll need Your help to fight.

I feel I’ll soon get caught,
like a fish on a hook
for satan’s traps and snares
are everywhere I look.

Lord, today I’m feeling,
like a ship lost at sea
so I’m counting on You . . .
to come and rescue me!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 107:28

“Then they cry unto the Lord
in their trouble, and he
bringeth them out
of their distresses.”

Get a Grip on Fear ~

Whenever fear begins,
messing with my head
when it fills up my heart
with anxiety and dread.

It’s when I go to Jesus,
to still the storm inside
soon the waves of fear
calmly start to subside.

Whenever fear grips me,
squeezing my very soul
when with it I battle
to take back control.

It’s when I go to Jesus,
for that stillness exceeding
soon the trembling I feel
starts peacefully receding.

Whenever fear creeps in,
just as it starts to invade
it’s when I go to Jesus . . .
for He makes me not afraid!

~~~~~~

Luke 8:23-25

“But as they sailed he fell asleep:
and there came down a storm of wind
on the lake; and they were filled
with water, and were in jeopardy.

And they came to him, and awoke him,
saying, Master, master, we perish.
Then he arose, and rebuked the wind
and the raging of the water:
and they ceased, and there was a calm.

And he said unto them,
Where is your faith?
And they being afraid wondered,
saying one to another,
What manner of man is this!
for he commandeth even the
winds and water, and they obey him.”

Waiting ~

Lord, You have given me,
these mighty eagles wings
said they’d give me strength
in the problems life brings.

You said for me to wait,
for Your Son to return
until such time to give
You all of my concern.

You said there would be,
no weariness or fatigue
to wait until the day
the crown of life I’ll receive.

You said I would walk,
without ever fainting
to focus on the future hope
You have for me awaiting.

Lord, You have given me,
these powerful eagle wings
and so I patiently wait . . .
for the newness of all things!

~~~~~~~

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.”

Without The Lord’s Strength ~

Without the Lord’s strength,
like ice I would melt
from the frigid hand
in life, I’ve been dealt.

Without the Lord’s strength,
like the sand I would shift
if not for His grace
I’d be in a faithless drift.

Without the Lord’s strength,
like a towel I would fold
if not for His love
I’d be left out in the cold.

Without the Lord’s strength,
like a box I would cave
if not for His power
I’d still be to sin a slave.

Without the Lord’s strength,
like a flower I would fade
if not for His mercy
I’d be alone and afraid.

Without the Lord’s strength,
like a tree I would fall
if not for His forgiveness
I’d be nothing at all.

Without the Lord’s strength,
mercy, power, grace and love
I would be lost . . .
like a hand, missing a glove!

~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:29

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

Fill Me Up Lord ~

Fill me up Lord,
till I overflow
with Your love
keep my heart aglow.

Fill me up Lord,
till I burst inside
with Your power
help me to abide.

Fill me up Lord,
till I bust all out
with Your peace
rid me of my doubt.

Fill me up Lord,
till I gush and spew
with Your grace
restore and renew.

Fill me up Lord,
till I over-spill . . .
with Your love
let me have my fill!

‘Blessed are they which do hunger
and thirst after righteousness:

Like An Eagle ~

Renewed like an eagle,
my strength restored
the closer I sweep in
to Jesus, my Lord.

He gives me courage,
to go the distance
gives me His strength
when I meet resistance.

Just like an eagle,
the clouds I climb above
rising over my troubles
on the strength of His love.

I have the fortitude,
to  look into the eye
of each raging storm
that passes me by.

He renews my faith,
my trust He restores
until the day like an eagle
into heaven I soar!

~~~~~~~~~

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.”

Thrown To and Fro ~

Lord, what is this feeling,
churning inside of me
it feels as if inside . . .
I’m in a swirling sea.

I know You’re my Anchor,
but, I’m losing my grip
oh, please dear Lord . . .
do not ever let me slip.

Lord, why is my trust,
ebbing in and out . . .
why are these deep waters
causing me to doubt?

I know You’re my strength,
I know You’re my hope
but I feel as if . . .
onto You I blindly group.

Lord, why am I getting,
thrown to and fro . . .
it must be so Your stillness
I may come to know!

“He maketh the storm a calm,
so that the waves thereof

God Never Gets Weary ~

Are you feeling fatigued,
by your weariness
are you exhausted
and feeling listless?

Then wait on the Lord,
your energy He’ll renew
for He never gets tired
of strengthening you.

Do you need recharging,
a shot of endurance
do you need fortitude
some extra assurance?

Then wait on the Lord,
faint He does not
He never gets worn-out
when His power is sought

Are you growing weary,
is your faith getting slack?
Then wait on the Lord . . .
for the strength you lack!

~~~~~

Isaiah 40:30-31

“Even the youths shall faint
and be weary, and the young
men shall utterly fall:

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.”

Dispel Your Despair ~

If your faith is steadfast,
rooted and grounded
when trials come your way
in joy you’ll be surrounded.

For in the very midst,
of your worldly care
counting it all for joy
will dispel your despair.

When in Jesus,
you are truly content
you’ll experience joy
that is heaven sent.

For, whether in sickness,
or in perfect health
joy will bring to you
everlasting wealth.

Joy is not an option,
it’s something God gives
to those where His Spirit
securely abides and lives!

~~~~~

Romans 15:13

“Now the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace in
believing, that ye may abound
in hope, through the power

God Has My Back ~

I have personal needs,
individual wants I lack
but, God always has
my spiritual back.

I trust Him to provide,
for me every day
the patience to keep me
on the narrow way.

I know He will grant,
me with His grace
to meet head on
the trials I face.

I have faith knowing,
He will give me power
to overcome temptation
my every waking hour.

I have many needs,
personal wants I lack
but, I always get wisdom
whenever God I ask!

~~~~~

James 1:4-5

“But let patience have
her perfect work, that ye
may be perfect and entire,
wanting nothing.

If any of you lack wisdom,
let him ask of God, that giveth
to all men liberally,
and upbraideth not;
and it shall be given him..”

A Trembling Mess ~

I use to be,
panic-stricken
I once was
fear driven.

But then Jesus,
said to me
don’t be afraid
by what you see.

I use to be,
a big worry wart
I once was
anxiety’s transport.

But then Jesus,
took my cares
said they were His
alone to bear.

I use to be,
a trembling mess
but then Jesus carried
away all my distress!

A Gospel-Driven Life ~

A Gospel-driven life,
is a life worth living
its full of power
for it knows its calling.

It’s a life full of hope,
it is Christ-driven
it knows by His grace
it has been forgiven.

A Gospel-driven life,
is one full of light
it uses God’s Word
so darkness it can fight.

It’s a life committed,
to the Truth and Way
it is Spirit-driven
it knows not to stray.

A Gospel-driven life,
sets its mind on above
it finds perfect peace
resting in God’s love.

“For whatsoever things
were written aforetime

Winning The Fight ~

Each days a battle,
we must fight
against the darkness
with God’s light.

Against the forces,
lead by the devil
against his armies
saying good is evil.

Our spiritual enemies,
are all around us
to their wicked ways
they want us to adjust.

But, we must stand,
for what we believe
and their evil lies
we must not receive.

Each day it’s a battle,
to shine God’s light
we’ll need His full armor
if we’re to win the fight!

~~~~~~~~~

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the
darkness of this world, against

I am Blessed ~

I am blessed,
with everything good and just
blessed to have a God
in whom I can truly trust.

I am blessed,
with a lively, eternal hope
blessed to have a Savior
to help me each day to cope.

I am blessed,
with every spiritual blessing
blessed to have the Holy Spirit
urging me to keep on pressing.

I am blessed,
with all I could ever need
blessed to have my Bible
so my hunger it can feed!

Fear Fighting Faith ~

Fear fighting faith,
wins many a battle
when it’s enacted
anxiety it’ll tackle.

Fear fighting faith,
tells satan to flee
it says greater is He
living inside of me.

Fear fighting faith,
uses Bible verses
before worry
even surfaces.

Fear fighting faith,
claims victory
as soon as it feels
a little jittery.

Fear fighting faith,
is easy for you to do
now that the Holy Spirit
lives inside of you!

Every Spiritual Blessing ~

Each day we are blessed,
with God’s merciful love
blessed to know one day
we’ll be with Him above.

We are blessed to be,
sealed with the Holy Spirit
to be holy and blameless
so eternal life we’ll inherit.

We are blessed to know,
the mystery of His will
to feed upon His Word
to get our daily  fill.

We are blessed to know,
the hope of His calling
so into temptation His power
will keep us from falling

We are blessed with redemption,
when Jesus’ blood we embrace
for the forgiveness of our sins
through the richness of His grace.

Each Day we are blessed,
with every spiritual blessing
in the heavenly places in Christ
so into Him, we’ll keep pressing!

to keep us steadfast
in the daily race.

May each day,
God’s mercy we find
to fill our hearts
with peace of mind.

May each day,
our faith keep us
on the course
of hope and trust.

we seek God first
to feed our hunger
to quench our thirst.

we keep our eyes
looking forward to
the winner’s prize!
