“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.

 

 

“Behold Him” (re-post)

“Behold Him”

Behold Him; Your Eternal Creator
All Creation reverberates His glory
Behold Him; Your Heavenly Father
Lovingkindness; redemption’s story

Behold Him; Your Matchless King
Majestic, Holy; Crowned in Might
Behold Him; your Savior and Lord
The Only Way; the Truth and Life

Behold Him; Christ Jesus, Messiah
One Sacrifice; blood spilled for you
Behold Him; Lamb Enthroned Above
Everlasting; the Word Pure and True

Revelation 5:13 (NASB)
And every created thing which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all things in them, I heard saying, “To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever.”

Psalms 113:4-7 (NASB)
4 The LORD is high above all nations; His glory is above the heavens.
5 Who is like the LORD our God, Who is enthroned on high,
6 Who humbles Himself to behold The things that are in heaven and in the earth?
7 He raises the poor from the dust And lifts the needy from the ash heap

“Sole Delight”

Lord, I am safe and secure in You
Let Your Word be my sole delight
That I may think upon Your Truth
From morning through the night

Renew my mind; Light my way
Plant Your Word deeply within
You are the Potter; I am the clay
Liberated from the power of sin

In You, I have an oasis of peace
Abiding in You, I have my rest
All my worries to You I release
In You, I am happy and blessed

Psalms 37:4 (NASB)
Delight yourself in the LORD;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.

For I delight in it.

Psalms 1:1-2 (NASB)
1 How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.

“Gems of Grace”

“Gems of Grace”

How immeasurable; the spiritual riches of God’s Word
Precious Gems of Grace; His Treasures to be explored
Designed to empower and to properly equip the saints
That they may walk in a manner pleasing to their Lord

The Spirit teaches them; quickens their understanding
In His power, they are strengthened daily from within
They will know the boundlessness of the love of Christ
He lives His life out in them; they are complete in Him

Romans 11:33 (NASB)
Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!

“Heavenly Things Above”

“Heavenly Things Above”

Looking forward toward the future
Leaving behind what’s gone before
Seeing your life through God’s eyes
Getting to know and love Him more

Gaining insight from mistakes made
Thinking upon His Word every day
Growing in wisdom and knowledge
Jesus the Only Truth, Life, and Way

Glorifying Him in deeds and speech
Submitting and obeying Him in love
Praying, listening to the Spirit teach
Focusing on Heavenly things above

Colossians 3:1-3 (NASB)
1 Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
2 Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.
3 For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

Philippians 3:13-14 (NASB)
13 Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead,
14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

“An Enduring Legacy”

“An Enduring Legacy”

God’s given you His sufficient grace
To handle whatever today might bring
Don’t fret over what you can’t control
Seek Him in prayer about everything

Let your mind linger upon His Word
Let Scripture refresh your weary soul
Let Him do with your life as He wills
Let knowing Him better be your goal

This life passes by in the blink of an eye
It’s like a drop of water in an endless sea
Treasures stored up in Heaven last forever
A tribute to His glory; an enduring legacy

Psalms 84:11 (NASB)
For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
The LORD gives grace and glory;
No good thing does He withhold
from those who walk uprightly.

“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.’”

“Night and Day”

“Night and Day”

I’m looking forward to the future
When I’m face to face with Him
When I’ll finally see Jesus as He is
When I’m done with this body of sin

Through eyes of faith, I see His Light
And His Word encourages me along
From start to finish, He upholds me
Helping me to continue to be strong

When I wander off, He pulls me back
He leads me to safety, out of harm’s way
My Shepherd keeps His watch over me
Every minute of my life, night and day

Proverbs 18:28 (NASB) For You light my lamp; The LORD my God illumines my darkness.

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