“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.

“Each Moment”

“Each Moment”

Entrust each moment to the Lord
Extinguish all fiery arrows of fear
Plant deep His Truth in your heart
For He is your Solid Fortress near

Listen with your heart to His Word
Intently, purposefully, prayerfully
He’ll change you from inside out
Follow His commands carefully

Things you do for Him are eternal
Let Him be your joy and delight
Think on that which lasts forever
That which is true, pure, and right

Psalm 9:9-10 (NASB)
9 The LORD also will be a stronghold for the oppressed, A stronghold in times of trouble
10 And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, For You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You

II Corinthians 10:5 (NASB)
We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ

“Wellspring”

“Wellspring”

God’s Word is an eternal, life-giving wellspring
Fountain of rich grace flowing from His Throne
Forgiven and cleansed by the blood of the Lamb
Forever we are justified; for our sin Jesus atoned

Mercy and lovingkindness our Father has shown
He is always worthy of our praise and adoration
Let us worship our God in the beauty of holiness
Let us sing joyfully to the King of All Creation

Psalms 36:7-9 (NASB)
7 How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.
8 They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; And You give them to drink of the river of Your delights.
9 For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.

John 7:38 (NASB)
“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’”
