“Hand of Grace”

“Hand of Grace”

Anything of value I’ve done
Is only by Your Hand of grace
Forever You my pardon won
Which nothing can ever erase

Strength in self I don’t possess
But all I am and have is in You
My Rock, My Mighty Fortress
Without You, no good do I do

All that matters is You, not me
If not for You, I’d certainly fall
I pray to serve You obediently
My Jesus, My Lord, All in All

Romans 5:17 (NASB)

For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.

John 1:16 (NASB)

For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace

“More To Our Existence”

“More To Our Existence”

There’s more to our existence
Than going through the motions
We get preoccupied with self
Carried adrift by our emotions

Life becomes very unstable
Thoughts turned inside out
Your Word quells the chaos
Banishes all fear and doubt

You’re the most glorified
When we’re satisfied in You
Trusting You wholly in heart
Firmly rooted in Your Truth

Sin for us holds no appeal
If Your statutes we obey
Nor will feelings rule us
If we follow You and pray

Psalms 19:11 (NASB)
The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
Psalms 16:11 (NASB)
You will make known to me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.

“His Holy Light”

“His Holy Light”

As myriads of stars illumine the nighttime sky
So do Saints in Christ display His Holy Light
Purified and refined by the Truth of His Word
Walking by faith in Him, not by physical sight

Apart from Him, they are like ships lost at sea
He loses none; He brings them safely to shore
He is their Shepherd Who watches over them
He is their God Who loves them forevermore

Psalms 36:9 (NASB) For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.

 

 

“As It Was Meant To Be”

“As It Was Meant To Be”

This is our prayer to You for each day
To set our hearts upon eternal things
You are sovereign; You are in control
Of whatever tomorrow to us brings

This life is but a wisp; a mere vapor
Treasures stored up on earth will pass
Each breath and heartbeat is Your gift
Only works done for Your glory will last

A brilliantly wonderful future we have
Perfect, Heavenly harmony of life anew
Joy unspeakable; as it was meant to be
And forever we will be worshipping You

II Corinthians 4:18 (NASB)
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.

“He Is Your Destiny” (re-post)

“He Is Your Destiny”

He is your Redeemer; Your Forever Friend
His love, mercy, and grace will never end
He is mighty and invincible in His power
Eternal Lord and King; Shelter and Tower

Dependence upon Jesus makes you strong
His Word sustains and carries you along
Prayer is your source of peace and hope
Brings you through; enables you to cope

Remember all that He has done for you
He has forgiven you and made you new
His Truth is like a mirror; in it you see
Your Savior’s Face; He is your destiny

Psalms 37:39-40 (NASB)
39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; He is their strength in time of trouble.
40 The LORD helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, Because they take refuge in Him.

“For His Glory”

“For His Glory”

Who are we that God notices us?
Creator of All; Transcendent King
Why did He send His Son to die?
On the Cross, a Perfect Offering

Why does He hear our prayers?
In Jesus, we have righteousness
How can we receive forgiveness?
When our sins to Him we confess

Why were we put upon this earth?
For His glory, and because He lives
What motivates us to live for Him?
Because He is ours; and we are His

Ephesians 2:4-7 (NASB)
4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
5 even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
6 and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
7 so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

“To My Brethren”

“To My Brethren”

To My Brethren; My Dear Family in Christ
May He fill your thoughts with His peace
May you take comfort in His loving arms
All your fears and anxieties in Him cease

May you rise up in His infinite strength
May He meet the longings of your heart
May He bestow His blessings upon you
Grace and goodness to you He imparts

As you travel with Him along this road
Though you can’t see around the bend
He’s your sufficiency in your weakness
He’ll uphold you right to the very end

Ephesians 1:18-19 (NASB)
18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints
19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.

“Joy That Will Not Fade”

“Joy That Will Not Fade”

The nearer God’s Children draw to Him
The more they will grow to hate their sin
His Pure Holiness; of this they are aware
His mercy toward them; His loving care
Through refining fire, their faith He tests
They are strongest when in He they rest
In light of His grace, their troubles dim
There is peace; a quiet assurance within
He is their Lord; He comes to their aid
He is their Hope; Joy that will not fade

Psalms 32:11 (NASB)
Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous ones;
And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.

“All He Wants Us To Know”

“All He Wants Us To Know”

Our eyes will gaze upon Jesus
From this world, we will depart
We discern this in our spirits
Hold His promise in our hearts
No longer will we be strangers
Aliens in a hostile, foreign land
Our Heavenly Home is calling
Prepared by His own Hand
It is beyond imagination
What our Lord has planned
For we who love Him so
But He has provided us
Through His Holy Word
All He wants us to know

I Corinthians 2:9-10 (NASB)
but just as it is written, “THINGS WHICH EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND EAR HAS NOT HEARD, AND which HAVE NOT ENTERED THE HEART OF MAN, ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.”
For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.

“Best Friend”

“Best Friend”

Amidst the waves; the thundering tide
I know that my Savior stays by my side
When chaos and confusion fill the air
I will not be struck down by despair

I will walk by faith alone, not by sight
In His power; the strength of His might
He sought me out; He called my name
He forgave me; He paid for my shame

Each day I spend with my Best Friend
My relationship with Jesus has no end
When I finally meet Him face to face
Thankful tears will flow for His grace

He was with me when I needed Him
He released me from my prison of sin
And in that moment, He revealed to me
I was His forever, and always would be

Psalm 100:5 (NASB)
For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting And His faithfulness to all generations.

“At Your Weakest, He Is Strongest”

“At Your Weakest, He Is Strongest”

God will provide a way for you
When it seems there is no way
What appears to be impossible
Is possible with Him as you pray

Fearful thoughts that assail you
Are only the enemy’s vicious lies
Feeding your mind with His Word
Makes your thinking clear and wise

It is not about what you can do
But what He can do through you
At your weakest, He is strongest
And He is always faithful and true

II Corinthians 12:10 (NASB)
Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.
