Sunday Praise (25) 2/24/19

Sunday Praise (25) 2/24/19. by me.

God, You’ve given me life,
You’ve given me everything
I’ve had and have now,
It’s all from Your hand.

Your mercy is evident daily,
Your grace still amazes me,
Your love captivates me,
There’s really no one like You.

My spirit is willing to obey You
But my flesh is weak, o Lord.
There is a war within me
Against temptation and sin.

This life is shorter than I realize,
The brevity of life is an epiphany,
I see the need to give You everything,
To love You and people sincerely.

You’re not less than awesome,
God, You surprise me so often,
I can’t deny Your hand at work
In my life and in others’, Lord.

You open doors for conversations,
You present new opportunities
To bring Your truth to people
Who need it but haven’t heard it yet.

I can see You’re changing me
From who I was years ago
Into who You want me to be,
You change me from inside out.

I still have a long way to go
Until I’m who You want me to be,
This process will continue
Until the day I die, I know.

Your grace sustains me,
It is sufficient for me,
You strength is made perfect
In my weakness, my Father.

My soul blesses You, Lord,
And will bless You forever,
I thank You for everything,
I praise You for who You are.

God, thank You for believers,
For brothers and sisters in Christ,
For fellowship, for times of meeting,
For being able to praise You with them.

Your love is unending,
You’re tougher than granite,
You’re stronger than anyone else,
You’re incomparable, o Lord.

I’ll follow You all life long,
I know You’re always with me,
You will bring me Home,
I’ll forever be with You.

You wonderfully ordain all things,
Nothing’s out of Your control,
God, You’re Sovereign over all,
Creation sings praises to You.


Sunday Praise (24) 2/17/19

Sunday Praise (24) 2/17/19. by me.

A week has come and gone,
Now it’s all in the past,
Only memories of those days
Will remain, but some won’t.

I have seen Your works again
Displayed for all to see, God,
There’s no excuse for unbelief,
You are real, living and true!

I’ve seen Your mighty deeds
Not just in my own life
But in many others’ lives,
You’re loving and living and active.

I can’t deny what You’ve done
For me and for countless others,
I can’t keep my mouth shut,
I won’t be silent, I’ll praise You!

I’ve taken things for granted,
On some days I didn’t even pray
But You’ve always been with me,
Emmanuel, You’re God with us all!

My heart is filled once again
With words of praise to You,
I will declare Your works, O Lord,
It’s too important to not do.

Worthy of all the glory,
You are deserving of it all,
The best of all I can give
I will give You, God Almighty!

I am not ignorant, Father,
Of Your activity in this world,
This isn’t chance at work,
It’s not coincidence, it’s You.

You’re never too far from us, Lord,
You’re never as cold as we can be,
You’re more loving than anyone else,
You’re worthy of honor, love, obedience.

Help me in this journey of life,
On this narrow road You put me on,
I can’t make it on my own, alone,
I need You everywhere I go, Lord.

Teach me to seek Your face
Early in the morning, Lord,
To seek You every new day,
Help me find You every day.

I’m not as devoted as I can be
To You, Master, Savior, Friend,
My God, I need strength and guidance,
I need You everywhere, every moment.

Give me what I need to stand
Against my enemy’s attacks,
He and his army are warring
Against Your children every day.

We’re soldiers in Christ’s army,
He’s leading us, giving orders,
He’s fighting, He won the war,
But there are still battles to fight.

God, I need You to help me now
And every time I am attacked
By the Devil, his servants, temptation,
Be my strength, my victory, always.

You’re the Vine and I’m a branch,
Help me to abide in You, Lord,
I can’t bear fruit without You,
You sustain me, You give me life.

I’m nothing without You,
I’m nothing without love,
I’ve nothing without You,
God, You’re my everything.

Holy are You, O God,
Now and forever You reign,
Righteous and just are Your ways,
Mighty and wonderful are You above all.

Daily fill my heart with praise,
To give a worthy offering to You,
Teach me to seek You always,
You are mine and I am Yours.

How wonderful is Your mercy,
How amazing is Your grace,
How incomparable is Your love,
How holy and righteous You are, God!

I will thank You for what You do,
I will praise You for who You are,
I will bless You, most holy One,
Sovereign King, forever You reign!

Sunday Praise (23) 2/10/19

Sunday Praise (23) 2/10/19. by me.

Blessed above all others,
Holy and righteous One,
Merciful, kind, and loving,
You’re the everlasting God.

I thank You for Your grace,
I worship You, living God,
I count Your mercies for me
And bless Your holy name.

This world is not my home,
In Heaven with You is my Home.
I wait patiently for the day
When I’ll see You face to face.

Eternity seems far away
But life on Earth is very short,
It’s over before we know it,
It’s fragile, brief, and passing.

I see the work of Your hands
And the greatness of Your deeds,
I worship and adore You, Lord,
I know there’s no one like You!

I enter Your presence with praise,
My heart rejoices in You,
You’re my soul’s comfort,
You’re the strength of my life.

The beauty of created things
Shows Your design and creativity,
Complexity discovered and yet unseen
Declare Your greatness and majesty.

I won’t stay silent, come what may,
The world system is hostile against You
But You’re worthy to be worshiped and obeyed,
I will declare Your name, Your love, Your ways.

You hold all things in Your hands,
You never lose control, Sovereign,
King of kings and Lord of lords,
All others are impostors, usurpers.

I will glorify You, God, Savior,
Until I die and then forevermore,
You are worthy and deserving
Of honor, glory, worship, praise.

“Every Scar Is A Reminder”

10/21,23,25/18. 11/5/18.

“Every Scar Is A Reminder”

Every scar is a reminder
I am mortal, I will die.
Every scar is a reminder
I have made it this far.

Every scar is a reminder
I have lived here this long
By the grace of Almighty God,
He sustains me every moment.

Every scar is a reminder
I have fought for something,
I’ve fought against something,
Won or lost, it was worth it.

Every scar is a reminder
We don’t live in a perfect world,
Life doesn’t seem fair or easy,
Many things don’t make sense.

Every scar is a reminder
Life on Earth is quite short,
Shorter than we want it to be,
Over before we realize it.

Every scar is a reminder
We can’t live in the past,
We can’t go back in time,
We must live in the present.

Every scar is a reminder
There is hope for the broken,
Life past tragedy and suffering,
Joy can live in scarred hearts.

Every scar is a reminder
There’s pain and loss here,
We’re all going to die,
Live to bring God glory.

Every scar is a reminder
There is more to life than
Searching for happiness,
More than temporary things.

Every scar is a reminder
Actions have consequences,
There’s forgiveness and change,
Life’s not without second chances.

Every scar is a reminder
Love is worth fighting for,
Hope is worth holding on to,
Life is not meaningless.

Every scar is a reminder
There’s a God who loves us
And wants what’s best for us,
We can’t live without Him.

Every scar is a reminder
Wounds take time to heal.
Every scar is a reminder
Time is ever moving forward.

Sunday Praise (22) 2/3/19

Sunday Praise (22) 2/3/19. by me.

Lord, You are always worthy
To be glorified and praised,
Worshiped, exalted, adored,
None are like You, God.

The beauty in creation,
The works of Your hands,
How wonderful and creative,
It shows Your greatness, Lord.

I see it and enjoy it,
My heart is filled with praise,
I bring it to You, Father,
There is no one like You.

God, You are my Healer,
You’re the Great Physician,
The Mender of the broken,
You restore, remake, rebuild.

I have prayed to You,
You’ve heard and answered,
You gave what You knew
Would be best for me.

Every good thing that I have
Is a gift from Your hand, God.
You show me and all Your love,
Your grace is evident, O Lord.

I will not deny
Your part in my life.
I am not blind,
I see Your many works.

My flesh is weak, Father,
I seek Your strength daily,
I confess You’re my strength,
I am weak but You are strong.

I thank You for the Cross
On which Christ died for sinners,
Made a way for reconciliation
With You, Jesus is the only way to You.

I believe You love like no other,
You alone are so merciful and kind,
You’re holy, just, and righteous,
We all need Your grace and forgiveness.

Your love amazes me,
I long to know You more,
Your character and nature,
None compare to You, God.

For Christ’s death for my sins,
I thank You and praise You,
You deserve my lifelong love,
Eternal gratitude and glory.

I’m imperfect and I know it,
I fall and fail, I stumble and sin,
I come to You for forgiveness,
I repent, You help me change.

All other gods are dead and damned,
Worthless idols, counterfeits, poisons,
You alone are the true and living God,
Sovereign King of kings, Lord of lords.

I seek Your presence, Father,
To know and walk in Your ways,
To reach the lost with the Gospel,
To bring Your light to the condemned.

Father, use me for Your glory,
The strength You gave to help others,
The works I can do for their good,
Use me to bring them to You.

My Lord, the perishing need You,
Give me boldness, courage, strength
To speak the truth in love to them,
To share the hope in Christ with them.

Lord, You are merciful and just,
More patient than any person,
More loving and holy, incomparable
Living and true now and forevermore.
