Because He lives, God truly does bless!     Ro.5:2; Ep.2:18; 3:12

Because He lives, I can overcome sin,                  Ro.6:11; Col.3:3

BEING CONTENT

The Lord leads and guides, truly indeed,    Ps.23
And He will always supply our needs.                 Phil.4:19
As our Shepherd, He’ll lead the right way,         
Trust His pow’r and wisdom, ev’ry day.

His Spirit within us does abide,                  Ro.8:9
Ne’er to leave us, what e’er may betide.    Jn.14:16; 2 Jn.2
MUCH greater than Satan is God’s Spirit, 1 Jn.4:4
So, humbly to God, we must submit.           Ro.6:13; Jam.4:7

We should not e’er covet worldly things,   Lu.12:15
But trust in the Lord and what He brings.  Mt.6:19-21
He will never leave us, nor forsake,            Heb.13:5
Turning from God, is a big mistake!           Jer.11:14; Is.1:15

Being content with what God provides,     1 Tim.6:6-12
Is a great secret that can’t be denied.        Phil 4:11-13
Without Jesus we’re nothing at all,            Jn.15:5
But with Him on our side, we’ll not fall.    Jn.3:15-16; 14:6

Better Than Life

Better than life, is Thy lovingkindness,
My lips shall praise Thee, for You always bless.
For as long as I live, I will bless Thee,
I’ll lift up Thy Name, for eternity.

As I lay on my bed, and meditate,
I remember Thy love and goodness so great.
Thou hast been my help, each time I do pray,
In Thy wings shadow, I’ll praise Thee always.

My soul will follow hard, after Thee,
For Thy wondrous right hand upholdeth me.
Truly God hath attended to my pray’r,
Bless’d be God, for His love, mercy and care.

For the Lord God is my Sun and my Shield,
And unto my Lord, I will totally yield.
No good thing will He withhold from me,
Or anyone who does walk, righteously.

Thou art good, always ready to forgive,
Mercy so plentiful, each day I live.
Lord, there are no other gods like unto Thee,
The Creator God, of eternity.

(Ps.63; 66:19-20; 84:11-12; 86:5-8)

Bumps, Bruises, Blessings

Do life’s bumps and bruises, plague you each day?
Do trials and temptations, come your way?
Does the devil and his tactics, deceive?
Do you shut your mind, to what you could receive?

Life’s bumps and bruises, are a certainty,
But our Lord has blessings, for you and me.
Do you from Christ, foolishly turn away?
When He could help you, in so many ways.

Life’s bumps and bruises, can make you afraid,
But, if you are wise, you’ll run to Christ for aid.
Christ offers abundant blessings, indeed,
If you will just admit, His help you need.

Thru’ bumps and bruises, Christ will not forsake,
If we walk with Him, blessings we’ll partake.
He doesn’t promise, to make troubles flee,
He does promise His Spirit, eternally.

His blessings, make bumps and bruises look small,
He will always lift us up, when we fall.
His amazing grace, is what we should seek,
Great blessings will be poured out, on the meek.

Christ Will Be There

Christ will be there, in your time of need,
Answer to your pray’r, He’ll send with speed.
He’ll give comfort, in your time of pain,
His loving Presence, is such great gain.

Christ will be there, any time you call,
His outstretched Hand, is there if you fall.
He gives such great peace, deep down inside,
For His Holy Spirit, does abide.

Christ will be there, when you need His pow’r,
He can give great strength, at any hour.
He nourishes us, for He is the Vine,
What joy it gives me, to know He’s mine!

Christ will be there, any time, any where,
When we go to Him, in earnest pray’r.
Faithfulness like His, is very rare,
O how He loves us, and truly cares.

When troubles come, He’s always close by,
With awesome comfort, He’ll not deny.
His Presence is with us, ev’ry hour,
Granting us always, love, wisdom and pow’r.

GOD IS SUFFICIENT

God is all sufficient; with mighty pow’r,
There for ALL His children, at any hour.
Just trust Him completely; He’s all you need,
BUT, if you’re not His child, He won’t take heed.

God gives us permanent stability,
He can stablish your soul, eternally.
It is only by His marvelous grace,
That any one shall ever see His Face.

God gives ALL His children great joy and peace,
His Spirit abides, and will grant increase.
If you are not His child, He will not bless,
With these wonderful gifts, that relieve stress.

Do you know our God? the Almighty One?
Do you know His only begotten Son?
The Father sent Jesus, to save your soul,
Of Heaven and Hell, Christ has full control.

Turn your life over to Jesus today,
Only He can save; there’s NO other way!
Tomorrow’s bright dawn you may never see,
Do you know where you’ll spend eternity?

Only Christ has the key to Heaven’s gate,
Repent, and accept Him, ‘fore it’s too late.
If you reject Jesus, I’m here to tell,
Eternity for you, will be in Hell.

GOD IS WELL ABLE

Our God is able to do all things,
He’s the Creator, and mighty King!
He can save us from the fire of Hell,
And in Heav’n, for ever, we will dwell.

God could speak to stones, and make them men,
Raise up unto Abraham, children.
He is able, with Almighty power,
To make the devil, cringe and cower.

God is fully able to perform,
All He has promised; mid calm or storm.
He’s able to give us grace so free,
And ‘twill be sufficient, for you and me.

God is able to do all we ask,
Able to give strength, for ev’ry task.
To do exceeding abundantly,
His power in us, gives victory.

He’s able to save, to the uttermost,
This is something, of which we should boast.
If we come to God, thru’ Christ, His Son,
Eternal life for us, has begun.

I’m sure He’s able, to keep my soul,
For He’s Almighty, and in control.
Christ is able, to not let us fall,
And present us faultless, at God’s call.

GOD NE’ER DID PROMISE

God ne’er did promise skies always blue,
There are times when He’ll send a storm too.
God ne’er did promise sun without rain,
There are times we’ll be subject to pain.

God ne’er did promise no trouble or woe,
But He’ll be with us, His grace to show.
Trials and temptations will on us come,
‘Til that fateful day He calls us ‘home’.

God ne’er did promise roads smooth and wide,
But when things get rough; He’ll be our ’Guide’.
Should our path get treacherous and steep,
We know He’s there, His strength we can reap.

God ne’er did promise life without toil,
But He’s near, and our efforts won’t foil.
Rivers of waters; raging and deep,
Should not scare; for His children He’ll keep.

God DID PROMISE His children great things,
True love, mercy, and forgiveness, He brings!
Strength, rest, peace, and joy, all from above,
Grace and compassion, from a God of love!

GOD TAKES CARE OF ME

God takes care of me, for Him I believe,

My whole life is under His watchful eye,
His loving goodness, I’ll never deny!

God takes care of me, for I am His child,
I’m part of His fam’ly, I’ll not be exiled.
Because I believe in His beloved Son,
God will never, ever, my presence shun!

God takes care of me, when I have pain,
The consolation He gives, is such great gain.
When sorrow comes, and my eyes fill with tears,
Loving comfort I find, for He is near!

God takes care of me now, and for ever more,
For the bliss of Heaven, He holds in store.
I have peace, joy and hope, for all eternity,
Because I trust Christ, God takes care of me!

GOD’S  CARESSING  LOVE

Our very soul, God’s love does caress,
Loving us always, He’ll always bless.
Surrounded by His love; His children are,
They’re WHOSOEVER, both near and far.

Caressing love; it’s so very real,
I feel it always, as I humbly kneel.
His caressing love is always near,
No matter my plight, I’ve nought to fear.

I feel this love, when He forgives me,
That sin is gone, from it I am free.
Caressing love, from my Father who cares,
There in a heartbeat, in my prayer.

His gentle touch, caresses my soul,
For this love, I gratefully extol.
Such a blessing, this caressing love,
It can come only, from God above.

GOD’S FAITHFULNESS

“I am with thee, and will keep thee,”
When God speaks; we should listen, closely!
Almighty God cannot tell a lie,
If He makes a promise, He’ll not deny!

God will never, ever, forsake His own,
He is faithful; His love will be shown.
Not one of His Words has ever failed!
He and His Words, will always prevail.

His faithfulness reacheth to the clouds,
With blessings and mercy, we’re endowed.
Thank Him for His love; thank Him for His grace,
Always thank Him, till you see His Face!

Commit unto Him, your heart and soul,
He’ll then write your name on Heaven’s roll.
He will never leave nor forsake you,
Count on His promises; they are true!

Believe what He says, every Word,
Trust His Son, and accept Him as Lord.
Jesus will save your very own soul,
God is faithful; He gave Him control.

In your confusion, did you ask Him to guide?
Did you ask that your daily needs, He provide?
Did you ask, that your doubts He remove?
Did you ask that you live a life, that He approves?

Have you thanked Him, for removing your fear?
Have you thanked Him, for His Presence, near?

HE’S THERE FOR YOU

Did you e’er have all things, seem to go wrong?
And your strength was gone, you felt weak, not strong?
Did you ask for help, or go it alone?
He’s there for you, why do it on your own?

Does the road you’re trudging, seem all uphill?
Are your tired legs weak, with no pow’r to fill?
Did you take it to Christ, ask Him for aid?
He’s there for you, when you can’t make the grade.

Has funds been low, but bills keep piling high?
There’s no peace within, all you do is cry?
Have you thought, maybe Christ could assist?
He’s there for you, you should cease to resist.

Have daily cares and worries, pressed you down?
Do you rarely smile, but just wear a frown?
Jesus could make things easier for you,
He’s there for you, and He will see you thru’.

A dark cloud could have, a silver lining,
Ev’n worst troubles, could end with a blessing.
Many great Promises, to us He makes,
He’s there for you, He will never forsake.

Christ won’t make all your troubles go away,
But He’ll walk with you, each step of the way.
His yoke is easy, and His burden light,
He’s there for you, no matter your plight.

HIS LOVING PRESENCE

Lord, You have promised, to ever present be,
For where Your loving presence is, grief will surely flee!
Let me realize, that come weal or come woe,
The joy that abides within, will be a constant flow!

My precious Saviour, will always comfort be,
For He took sin away, and set my troubled soul free!
His Kingdom of love, is deep within my heart,
And His loving Presence, comfort does impart!

Be it gladness or sorrow; what e’er may betide,
I have great peace, for I know He does abide!
In quiet confidence; His strength I truly know,
For I know deep down inside; He’ll never tell me “No.”

His loving Presence, gives hope of what will be,
For I have His Promise, of life eternally!
A “mansion” in the Heav’nly realm, by the street of gold,
For He is my Shepherd, and I’m a sheep within His fold!

HIS UNSEEN HAND

His unseen Hand guides me as I go,
Ev’n if the path is steep and narrow.
He guides me safely to the summit,
But I must trust Him ev’ry minute.

His unseen Hand leads me all the day,
Patiently guiding an unknown way,
Tho’ I cannot see what lies ahead,
I have trusted Him; there is no dread!

His unseen Hand, so gentle and kind,
Always loving; not leaving me behind!
Tho’ I may have sorrow, hurt, or pain,
He’ll not forsake; He’ll always remain!

His unseen Hand will comfort when I die,
And lead me to my Home on high.
He’ll wipe tears away, for ever more,
In His wondrous House, on Heaven’s shore.

But I must trust Him, and in Him abide.

For one day soon, I’ll see Jesus’ Face!

I Can’t See Jesus Now

Even tho’ I can’t see Jesus now,
One day at His Feet, I’ll humbly bow.
He’ll be Lord of lords, and King of kings,
And He’ll be Ruler, of everything.

I can’t see Him now, but soon I will,
And all my hopes, He’ll abundantly fill.
He has promis’d, life eternally,
Where for e’er I’ll serve Him, faithfully.

I can’t see Him, but I know He’s near,
I feel His Presence, I have no fear.
One with Christ, is the majority,
Tho’ the whole world, be my enemy.

I can’t see Him, but His peace I feel,
The joy and contentment, is so real.
I am so grateful, that He abides,
Of my Saviour, I have such great pride.

I can’t see Him today, but it may be soon,
We know not when, morning, night or noon.
We must keep watch, and live for the Lord,
Disobedience, we can’t afford.

I live for the day, when Christ I shall see,
Then I’ll live with Him, eternally.
Then, every singly day, I’ll see Him,
In our glorious Home, that’s never dim.

I CAN’T SEE YOU

Today I can’t see You with my eyes,
But soon in the clouds, You’ll materialize.
My glad heart shall know You, instantly,
Because it knows You so intimately.

My soul with tremendous joy shall leap,
I’m so grateful that it, You safely keep.
Soon in the clouds, I shall hear You shout,
My ecstatic soul has not any doubt.

High in the clouds, one day You’ll come,
You shall take, all true believers home.
I look forward to that special day,
Let me keep watch, as I go my way.

I can’t see You now, but soon I will,
My heart with abundant joy does fill.
As I ponder, that day You’ll arrive,
Help me Lord, as thru’ this life I strive.

It might be today, or tomorrow,
It could be in a time, of joy or sorrow.
Let me keep watch, as I live for You,
Till that day I see You, e’er so true.

Help me Lord, so I don’t go astray,
Let me be vigilant, ev’ry day.
Morning, noon or night, soon You shall come,
To take us to our eternal Home.

I Can’t Understand

Lord, there are times I can’t understand,
The grace that comes from Your loving Hand.
When I think of what a sinner am I,
It seems that my pleas You should deny.

Lord, when I think of my wicked heart,
I can’t understand why You don’t depart.
When I think of all the sins I’ve done,
I realize I’ve sinn’d, ‘gainst God’s own Son.

Lord Jesus, I’m not worthy of Your love,
That You shed on me daily, from above.
And You are always there, You never leave,
Ev’n tho’ my wicked ways, Your Heart does grieve.

Precious Lord, why do You put up with me?
For I am so fill’d, with iniquity.
It seems that You should turn, and run away,
Far away from my hateful, wicked ways.

At times Lord, I can’t understand at all,
Why You pick me up, each time that I fall.
I want to please You, I want to do good,
But it seems I never, do as I should.

I’m truly grateful for Your wondrous love,
And I thank You always for my home above.
I do not deserve You, not ev’n a bit,
But You prove o’er and o’er, Your love won’t quit.

I thank You for all, that You’ve done for me,
I thank You for Your grace, that is so free.
I thank You for forgiveness ev’ry day,
Ev’n when my actions are a bad display.

Romans 7:24-25 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? [25] I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin. [KJV]

I Know These Things

I know He loves me, and truly does care,
And is with me always, everywhere.
No mortal could e’er be such a friend.
He’ll be with me to my journey’s end.

I know He will never leave or forsake,
And He’ll stand by me, in my mistakes.
It’s such a comfort to know He’s near,
As He whispers to me “You need not fear.”

I know He loves me, for He cannot lie,
On His strength and wisdom, I can rely.
He forgives me when my sin I confess,
With His faithfulness, He does bless.

His grace is sufficient, for me always,
No matter the trouble of my days.
Pain or sickness, or deepest sorrow,
His love makes me see, a brighter tomorrow.

As I consider His great love for me,
He’ll be with me, thru’ eternity.
He prepares for me, a wondrous place,
And one day soon, I will see His Face.

As He sits on the Father’s right Hand,
He has power to control all the land.
Just He holds the key to Heav’n’s shore,
Where blissful delight will be in store.

As I wait for my mansion above,
I can envision His wondrous love.
I know all that He tells me is no lie,
And I know on Him I can fully rely.

It Could Have Been Worse

It could have been worse, you must consider,
As o’er your circumstance, you do ponder.
God may test us, with great severity,
To see where we’ll stand, both you and me.

When painful troubles, on us does arrive,
Our faith must be strong, or we’ll not survive.
The closeness of Jesus, is O’ so near,
When we stand firm with Him, we need not fear.

“It could have been worse; I cannot see how,”
These words you speak, as you wipe sweat from your brow.
But there’s been someone before, who’s felt your woe,
Consider this, as thru’ each day you go.

Worry and depression, these do you feel?
And agonizing pain, so very real?
Confusion in your mind, as you ask “Why?”
Many tears flow, as you continue to cry.

There’s someone worse off, if you’d look around,
Troubles to many people, do abound.
Our faith must be steadfast, we must trust the Lord,
Let’s always stay close to Him and His Word.

We know not what another person feels,
When they go thru’ their trouble, as they heal.
We must remember as we go thru’ each day,
When Christ is your Friend, He’s there all the way.

Paul and I are getting up in years and neither of us have good health. We both abused our bodies when we were working. We made our living with horses and we've both been banged up time and time again over the years. So now, we suffer from arthritis and bad backs, etc. But through it all, no matter how bad things seemed, our Lord Jesus NEVER left us! He did not take away our misery, but He walked with us through them. And I don't care how bad things are . . . if you just look around . . . there is ALWAYS someone worse off than you are. We need to give thanks in EVERYTHING!!! 1 Thes. 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. (KJV)

It Matters Not

As I walk with my Lord, Hand in hand,
I’ll follow Him and obey His command.
It matters not, just where He shall lead,
I’ll walk in faith, to Him I’ll heed.

Life’s narrow road, does get rough and steep,
If we walk in His Light, He will keep.
It matters not, the road blocks ahead,
As I walk in His Light, I’ll have no dread.

As I walk with my Lord, each new day,
I’ll walk in His footsteps, all the way.
It matters not to me, where we go,
My faith will lead me, as I follow.

At times I feel that I can’t go on,
But surging strength comes from God’s own Son.
It matters not, that I’m worn and weary,
Faith in Jesus, gives me victory.

As I walk with my Lord, I’m ne’er sad,
Great joy is within, that makes me glad.
It matters not, what others might say,
I’ll continue in faith, on Heav’n’s way.

I NEED HIM!

Without Christ, I have no pow’r at all,
In ev’ry hour, on Him I must call.
O’ how I need, His strength ev’ry day,
And His guidance, to show me the way!

I need Him, when temptation sets in,
His pow’r alone, can keep me from sin.
Satan comes at me, from ev’ry angle,
Christ makes me strong, when with him I tangle!

I need Christ Jesus, when pain appears,
Comfort is there, when His Presence is near.
The pain lessens, considerably,
When I feel His Presence, close to me!

Without Christ, the wrong roads, oft’ I take,
I need His help, right choices to make.
Always on paths of light, me, He leads,
I must love and honor Him, and pay heed!

Without Christ, ‘twould be the Lake of Fire,
WITH Christ, ‘tis Heav’n, which is my desire,
His Promise, a mansion that awaits,
And a glorious entrance, at Hean’n’s gate!

WITH Christ, we will spend eternity,
Taking in all, Heav’n’s glorious beauty,
A grand Saviour and Lord, we have indeed,
Heav’n is ours, if we trust Him and pay heed!

Lessons From Life

What have I learned, in my life on Earth?
My wisdom and strength, are of no worth.
I must be humble, I must be meek,
If the Lord’s guidance, I truly seek.

I must ne’er think, “I’ll do it on my own,”
If I e’er want, God’s will to be shown.
I must have faith, and trust Him each day,
And I must love Him, and Him obey.

The Lord many troubles, will permit,
But He’ll always help, by His Spirit.
His Promise “I will not leave or forsake,”
But a commitment to Him, first we must make.

Tho’ temptation and trials, oft are great,
Vast comfort from Him, won’t e’er be late.
His loving Presence, is e’er so near,
We must have faith, not worry or fear.

At times His will, we can’t comprehend,
But if we love and obey, He’s our Friend.
Lessons from life can sometimes be hard,
But from His Throne of grace, we’re ne’er barr’d.

If we are God’s child, and love Him true,
He will always be there, for me and you.
We must be humble, we must be meek,
If the Lord’s guidance, we truly seek.

Such a great comfort, to know He’s there,
So encouraging, to Know He cares.
No matter our trouble, no matter our pain,
Christ’s love, strength, wisdom and help, we can gain.

And thank You again, for Your awesome grace.

My Shield and Hiding Place, I hope in Thy Word,

The warmth of His Presence, is with me always.

“I will never leave you, never forsake.”

His grace is indeed, an amazing thing,
There for me always, such a grand blessing.

An awesome Gift, God promised to me.

For Christ made me a child, in God’s family.

Reserv’d for me, and on Him I can rely!

I count on His guidance, each and ev’ry day,
As He lovingly guides me, in the right way.
He guides me with His counsel, ‘tis no story,
And when I pass on, He’ll receive me to glory.

His faithfulness gives me hope, abundantly,
Giving me assurance, and security.
‘Tis such a comfort to know, He cannot lie,
And that on ALL of His Promises, I can rely!

Forgiveness of my sins, I can’t comprehend,
What an awesome God, that He calls me “friend.”
I praise Him for all, that He does for me,

One way is a large and protective bird.
With His feathers, He shall cover thee,

Under the shadow of His wings, we can hide,
When with the Lord Jesus, we do abide.
We can run to Him, and find safety there,
We can forget all our worries and cares.

His lovingkindness is wondrous indeed,
When to His Holy Word, we truly heed.
Under the shadow of His wings, we can trust,
But our believing in faith, is a must.

My soul trusteth in Thee, ev’ry new day,
You are my Refuge, as I go my way.
To the shadow of Thy wings, I run fast,
Until calamities, be overpast.

Because Thou hast been my help, I rejoice,
When I cry out to You, You hear my voice.
In the shadow of thy wings, safe I feel,

When troubles that besiege, come into play,
Dear Lord, give me strength, to accept Your way.
When I feel as if, flood waters o’er flow,

You do allow trials, to come to me,

When troubles come, there’s a choice to make,
I can run fast to You, or You forsake.

We all have a free will, that You did give,
We all use this gift, as our life we live.
But so many times, I choose the wrong path,
And my error at times, can bring on Your wrath.

When You allow pain, to You I must run,
It’s a bad decision, when You I shun.
You ne’er promise, to take all pain away,
But feeling Your Presence, can make my day.

Pain and suffering, and troubles of all kind,
But thru’ these all, I can have peace of mind.

It matters not, when Your Presence I feel.
Your strength is made perfect, when I am weak,

I should take pleasure in infirmities,
For this must be for me, a necessity.

But the Holy Spirit is always near.
Over and over, He comes to our aid,

When we trust the Spirit, and don’t quench His pow’r,

Doubt will always eat your faith away,
Don’t give in to Satan, on any day.

Gently he will urge you, into sin.
Take hold of His Hand, as Christ you follow,
He truly will help you, in your sorrow.

Sometimes tho’ I try not, I worry,
Then try so hard to set my mind free.
I know I should give my worry to You,
Help me to trust You, each day anew.

Sometimes bad thoughts, creep into my head,

In my heart I know, I should do right,

Sometimes I feel envy, also pride,
These sinful things, I must set aside.
Coveting displeases You, this I know,
I need Your help, as thru’ life I go.

Sometimes it’s hard to imagine why,
You claim me as Yours, and don’t deny.
It’s then that I praise You and Your Son,
For all Your love, and all that You’ve done.

Sometimes in life, we will choose the wrong friends,
And the result, is a v’ry dreadful end.
Sometimes we may choose, the wrong roads to go,
That will end, in great pain and sorrow.

We must forget those things which are behind,
And to Satan’s leading, we must be blind.
No matter what, past things we cannot change,
We must let Jesus, our life re-arrange.

Christ Jesus loves us, He wants us to know,
Comfort and peace on us, He can bestow.
No matter how great our difficulty,
His amazing grace can give victory.

He can encourage us, for He is near,
His awesome Presence, casts out all our fear.
His Spirit within, gives us great peace,
From worry and doubt, we find release.

Such tremendous joy, just Jesus can give,
Walking with us in trouble, as we live.
All our troubles, He will not take away,
But His abundant love, makes a better day.

His grace is sufficient, to see us thru’,
For He truly does love us, me and you.
He will never leave us, never forsake,
When we know this, a better day it makes.

Sometimes in life, pain and suffering will arrive,
But if we trust Jesus, we will survive.
Trust His love and mercy, and grace so true,
He truly loves us, and will see us thru’.

When you have worry, that “blows your mind,”
Jesus is there, and He’s loving and kind!
Don’t let that worry, take hold of you,
Take it to Jesus, He’ll see you thru’!

Jesus is there for you, night or day!

Jesus is there, for He will ne’er depart!

Take it to Jesus, let Him have control!

When you feel downtrodden, and so low,

TELL IT TO JESUS!

Tell it to Jesus, when you feel sad,
When you talk to Him, your heart is glad!
Sadness will leave, joy will take its place,
All because of His wonderful grace!

Tell it to Jesus, when troubles abound,
His wondrous love is simply profound!
Trials and tribulations, plague us all,
But they seem minor, when on Him you call!

Tell it to Jesus, when worry sets in,
Worry leads to doubt; and that is sin!
He has promised to supply our needs,
When you talk to Him, He will take heed!

Tell it to Jesus, when you’re lonely,
Your burden He will gladly help carry!
Loss of a loved one, who did depart,
Can be eased by comfort He’ll impart!

Tell it to Jesus, if you have grief,
Trusting in Him grants such great relief!
He’ll never leave you; never forsake,
Nor guide you into a bad mistake!

Tell it to Jesus, when things go right,
Praise and thank Him always, day and night!
An awesome Saviour, whom we adore,
Will grant eternal life, on Heav’n’s shore!

Tell it to Jesus, pray without ceasing,
Only He, can eternal blessings bring!
Tell it to Jesus, our Saviour and Friend,
For friendship with Him will have no end!

THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD

The Lord is my Shepherd, I’m one of His sheep,
He watches ov’r me, and does tenderly keep.
The Lord is my Shepherd, He supplies my needs,
To green pastures and still waters, He leads.

The Lord is my Shepherd, He sees something in me,
That all those around me, just fail to see.
The Lord is my Shepherd, He leads on right paths,
Restoring my soul, keeping me from God’s wrath.

The Lord is my Shepherd, no evil shall I fear,
Thru’ the shadow of death, He is always near.
The Lord is my Shepherd, great comfort He brings,
 My enemies can’t comprehend, His blessings.

The Lord is my Shepherd, He’ll always be there,
Lovingkindness He reveals, because He cares.
The Lord is my Shepherd, I do not have dread,
Because of the Words, my Shepherd has said.

The Lord is my Shepherd, He truly loves me,
What follows me, is goodness and mercy.
The Lord is my Shepherd, in His House I shall dwell,
And for eternity, my fears He shall quell.

I can tolerate the pain each day,
For His grand Presence eases the way.
He’ll ne’er give us more than we can bear,
His comforting compassion, He shares.

No matter what Satan sends my way,
Christ’s wondrous Presence is there each day.
He’s always there, He’ll never leave,
Comfort from Him, I always achieve.

The wonder of His Presence I feel,
Love, comfort and strength, is O so real.
His Presence is amazingly true,
It’s there for me, and can be for you.

THY WILL BE DONE

Dear Lord, let me to Your will submit,
Let me not ever, quench Your Spirit.
Let me with all my heart, Your will seek,
Let Pride flee from me, let me be meek.

As I seek Your will, keep my faith strong,
Let me not ever doubt, for that is wrong.
Let my faith not waver, let me believe,
That guidance from You, I shall receive.

Thy will be done Lord, not ever mine,
Any glory there is, let it be Thine.
Let me allow You, to lead me each day,
As You shed Your great Light, on my way.

When I come to a mountain, ever so steep,
I know in my heart, my steps You will keep.
I must trust You Lord, but I must obey,
If I expect help, from You each new day.

Let me trust You always, let me not fear,
Let me feel Thy Presence, ever so near.
Let me seek Your will, in all that I do,
For to You dear Lord, I want to stay true.

Your wisdom Lord, not mine, will I trust,
Your will in my life, is simply a must.
My wisdom is ever so foolish to You,
I want Your will Lord, in all that I do.

TROUBLES WILL COME

Over and over, troubles arise,
The secret to this, is look to the skies.
Our help cometh each time from the Lord,
There is great comfort, from His Holy Word.

Satan is all smiles, when you worry,
Submit to God, and the devil will flee.
Temptations come, the Lord does permit,
But strength to endure, comes from His Spirit.

As an angel of light, Satan appears,
But the Holy Spirit is always near.
Over and over, He comes to our aid,
His Presence abides, so don’t be afraid.

Much greater is He who is in you,
Than the world’s devil, so untrue.
When we trust the Spirit, and don’t quench His pow’r,
He’ll help in a heart-beat, at any hour.

With each temptation, trouble and woe,
Great comfort and strength, o’er comes our sorrow.
Fellowship with Christ must be secure,
If troubles in life, we are to endure.

When into your life, doubt starts to creep,
Be sure that Jesus, will safely keep.
Doubt will always eat your faith away,
Don’t give in to Satan, on any day.

Between you and Christ, Satan tries to step in,
Gently he will urge you, into sin.
Take hold of His Hand, as Christ you follow,
He truly will help you, in your sorrow.

TURN TO JESUS

When your troubles all but swallow you,
Turn to Jesus, who is always true.
When things in your life, get hard to bear,
Turn to Jesus, for He always cares.

When the roads of life, are rough and steep,
With rugged mountains, and canyons deep.
Many others travel roads like this,
Turn to Jesus, He’ll not guide amiss.

Heartache and sorrow plague the young and old,
And we are timid, when we should be bold.
To test our faith, God does allow grief,
Turn to Jesus, for He’ll bring relief.

Each hurt we bear, is a stepping stone,
But we don’t have to walk life’s path alone.
When you feel weary, when you feel weak,
Turn to Jesus, as His strength you seek.

As we journey on to Heav’n’s domain,
Our faith in Christ Jesus must remain.
The light of the Lord, brightens our day.
Turn to Jesus, He’ll show the right way.

We all must go thru’ heartache and strife,
Pain and sorrow are just a part of life.
Sometimes we’ll be happy, sometimes sad,
Turn to Jesus, you’ll have more good than bad.

WALK CLOSE TO ME

I can hear Him say: Walk close to Me,
For to life’s problems, I hold the key.
I can help you, your burdens to bear,
I love you dearly, and I do care.

When life’s paths, get foreboding and dark,
Walk in My light, and to Me do hark.
Walk close to Me, I can hear Him say,
For I can make it, a brighter day.

Walk close to Me, Jesus gently states,
Life’s snarls, I can help eliminate.
Chaos that baffles you, I’ll help clear,
My child, I’ll assist, I’m always near.

Walk close to Me, my Master declares,
For no one else, with Me can compare.
I’ll give you wisdom, I’ll give you pow’r,
For I’m with you always, ev’ry hour.

Walk close to Me, my Friend speaks low,
For I will guide you, where e’er you go.
I’ll be with you, ev’ry step of the way,
Loving and caring for you, each day.

Walk close to Me, ‘tis my Shepherd’s voice,
And each time I hear, I simply rejoice.
When I stray, He brings me back to the fold,
His rebuke to me, is worth more than gold.

Walk close to Me, my Saviour does say,
As I get closer to Heav’n each day.
Only Christ Jesus holds Heav’n’s one key,
And just He can give, life eternally.

WHAT IF??

What if things don’t go as you expect?
After so much prayer, why won’t God protect?
If it’s not His will, you don’t want it my friend,
Rejoice, trust Him, He gives His best in the end.

What if prayer won’t take disease away?
What if your loved one passes on today?
You must rejoice, tho’ gladness won’t be near,
His Presence is with you always, have no fear.

What if the miracle doesn’t take place?
Will sadness within, show on your face?
Trust in the Lord, rejoice in His pow’r,
He’ll always see you thru’ your darkest hour.

You pray and pray for things to go your way,
What if no answer comes to you that day?
Rejoice, trust Him completely, He knows best,
His wisdom is true, when He runs His tests.

What if, you backslide from the Lord?
What if you neglect His most Holy Word?
You must repent, and to Him turn back,
You can’t rejoice when you’re on the wrong track.

Rejoice always and give thanks for all things,
The Lord’s lovingkindness, great blessings bring.
Rejoice, and walk ever so close to His side,
A wondrous life, when with Him you abide!

When Troubles Come

When troubles come, and you’ve done all you can,
Turn it over to Jesus, the Son of man.
When you simply cannot do any more,
Jesus is near, your faith to restore.

When you feel like screaming, because of pain,
Great comfort from Jesus, you can attain.
When you think to yourself, I’ve done all I can do,
Jesus is near you, and He can help you!

When great sorrow comes, and won’t depart,
Jesus can help, He has a loving heart.
He knows what’s happening, He sees you grieve,
Jesus is near you, sorrow to relieve.

He will not take all your problems away,
But He certainly can, brighten your day.
In all your troubles, with you He will walk,
Go to Him in pray’r, and to Him talk.

Jesus sees all your pain and agony,
My friend, He can help give you victory.
Jesus is near, His Presence you can feel,
And the comfort He gives you, is very real.

Jesus can help you, why struggle alone?
His Presence to you, He wants to make known.
Trust Him always, He won’t e’er let you down,
Wearing a smile is better than a frown.

WORRY

Worry won’t make problems go away,
It just brings stress to burden your day.
Worry puts nagging doubts in your mind,
Peace you long for is then hard to find.

We are told “Be anxious for nothing,”
To obey these words, brings a blessing.
We should always trust in His Holy Name,
Doubting Christ, will always bring shame.

We should place our worries in Christ’s Hands,
And on His Promises, firmly stand.
He promises all our burdens to share,
This wondrous Saviour, who truly cares.

Worry leads to stress, stress leads to doubt,
Ask Jesus to cast the devil out.
Worry can clearly consume your thoughts,
You don’t want in this trap to be caught.

Worry reduces your faith and trust,
These to our Lord, is simply a must.
Worry will never do any good,
‘Tis something that should be understood.

Those who depend on God, He won’t neglect,
His e’er watchful eye will always protect.
One day at a time, for He will aid,
We need not worry or be afraid.

Mt.6:25-34; Mt.11:28-30; Luke 12:29; Phil.4:6; 1 Pet.5:7.

YOUR EYES

Your eyes see, to the bottom of my soul,
You see anger, when I’m out of control.
You see all my thoughts, be they good or bad,
You see when I’m happy, and when I’m sad.

Your eyes see, to the bottom of my heart,
Where all things I do or say, have their start.
Things in my mind, from You I cannot hide,
Your all-seeing eyes, are on ev’ry side.

Your eyes see, the complete and actual me,
As I walk the road, to eternity.
I can fool many people, ev’ry day,
But I can’t fool Your eyes, in any way.

I need to walk, ever so close to You,
On that strait and narrow road, so true.
Approval from Your precious eyes, I need,
For on Your gracious goodness, I truly feed.

Your all-seeing eyes, let me never fear,
For Your kind, loving voice, I need to hear.
I look to the day, when I will then see,
Your beloved eyes, for eternity.

YOUR WALK WITH CHRIST

In your walk with Christ, stay close to Him,
‘Tis amazing, how your troubles will dim.
Ever present, He’s always near,
Gently He whispers “You need not fear.”

In your walk with Him, you may stumble,
Stay close to Jesus, be meek and humble.
Each time you stumble, His Hand extends,
May I tell you, there’s no better Friend!

As thru’ this wicked world you journey,
Satan tries hard to bring you mis’ry.
He’ll make bad things look good, he’ll deceive,
Don’t let your mind, his evil receive.

The road of life may get rough and steep,
Remember, Christ will safely keep.
Walk close to Him, with no room between,
Don’t let the devil degrade or demean.

Walking with Christ, you will make mistakes,
But He will ne’er abandon, or forsake.
All believers are tremendously bless’d,
With Promises of joy, peace and rest.

When to our Saviour and Lord, we stay true,
Heav’n’s glory awaits these faithful few.
Walking with Christ gives us victory,
We’ll then walk the street of gold, eternally.
