GOD is ONE who shows

HE…

Cares for even the sparrows

Created us flesh, blood, and marrow

Is greater in love laying down HIS life with obedience to the cross HE chose

Died to save us from sin and death HE did swallow

Shed HIS blood to forgive us making us whiter than snow

Redeems our lives in victory for HE arose

Will restore relationship if in disobedience we once froze

Let’s us know we are no longer solo

Helps us to walk through the valley of death’s shadow

Comforts, heals, and builds us up after sorrow

Lifts up our heads toward on high after being low

Lifts us up from being stuck in our woes

Lifts up our countenance until we glow

Changes us within to no longer be hollow

Loves us on the straight and narrow

Provides HIS grace to overflow

Provides HIS mercy to always know

Provides HIS compassion for us to go

Provides HIS Spirit for strength to follow

Helps us break up the ground that’s fallow 

Gives us faith, hope and love to grow

Gives us HIS will to disclose

Gives us the seeds to sow

Gives us commands from above to make disciples here below

Wins souls as wise to store up treasure in Heaven to bestow

Helps us throw off the sin that so easily entangles with our no

Leads us in paths of righteousness for HIS name sake for HIS will never to overthrow

Creates in us pure hearts so as not to fall into the world’s undertow

Delivers us from evil and defeats every foe

Defends HIS children from the enemy against us and all who may oppose

Aims our kids to go beyond as HIS arrows

Takes us further than beyond the status quo

Makes us vessels beyond what we think, ask, or imagine even more so

Stays the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow

Keeps HIS promises as evidenced by the rainbow

Prays we are willing to obey with the lives we borrow

Remains faithful if we falter or fall down even though

Will come again on the clouds to call us home lifting us up even so

Why am I inspired late at night

Why not when the sun is bright

I guess the darkness is what you saved me from

I profess YOUR Light given is what has brought my freedom

It’s YOUR blood poured out that has bought my life back from the dead

It’s YOUR Word of life that has taught me to renew my mind to offset dread

It’s YOUR Spirit that has caught my undivided attention to walk on ahead

It’s YOUR Presence that has sought my soul deserving punishment to restore instead

It’s YOUR touch that has given my life vision and purpose to be mission led

It’s YOUR love that has chased away the fear and how now life is lived and interpreted

 

Reach for the stars

However far

 

What’s better by far

Save souls to shine like stars

 

Dream of Heaven’s Light

However bright

 

What’s brilliance beyond sun to earth so bright

Reflect HIS love walking in the Light

 

Get to know to do GOD’s will

However difficult

 

What’s the cost and then count it all joy to takes steps difficult

Overcome fears more than a conqueror to carry out HIS perfect will

 

Wait on HIM for renewed strength

However long

 

What’s the difference it will make, to walk the extra mile, to help others along the way all life long

Depend on HIM in trust and humility to provide all that is needed found in HIS strength

 

Long for HIS appearing 

However busy

 

What’s the focus need to be as a priority that is worthy to keep us busy

Delight oneself in HIM above it all ready with faith to show at HIS great appearing

 

Live pure to be secure

However tempting

 

What’s the purpose other than to order one’s steps aright to set face like flint forward on the straight and narrow right on past tempting

Seek Heaven’s wisdom to find pure motives being pure lived out continually until one day see GOD and be found in HIM secure

 

Alive again

Just breathe

 

Spirit send

Then frees

 

Broken pieces

Into tears

 

Awoken, releases

From fears

 

Impart wisdom

Once grieves

 

Restart, listen

Past leaves

 

Walk on

Now aware

 

Strong bond

Will care

 

Stand upright

Fight for 

 

Command insight

Ignite, restore

 

Redeem lives

Share truth

 

Dream drives

Bear proof

 

Future become

Love’s reality

 

Nurture someone

Above’s modality

 

Make me faithful within

A heart pure and open

Not turn left or right into sin

Walking forward even if broken

Grace filled spaces taken

Straight and narrow not forsaken

Mercy and compassion awaken

Encouragement gladly given

All sin can be forgiven

Cast to the bottom of deepest ocean

As far as east to west forgotten

YOU gave all for many ransom

To be in that number not random

Drawn by HIS Spirit to the Son tandem

Find faith, hope, and love start to fathom

Into Living Water spring forth in rhythm

Overflowing cup no longer hidden

No longer run to what is forbidden

Run to seek the prize on mission

Now that I am set free from prison

All because HE died, buried, risen

HE is worth it to accept HIM

Now is the day of salvation’s decision

Words of life -time to listen

Better than into a well wishin’

There is faith to perceive new vision

There is hope to believe anew driven

There is love to conceive and newly breathe in

There is grace to receive for victorious livin’

There is mercy to leave guilt and shame ridden

There is compassion to grieve until you mend reopen

Know HE loves you when HE chooses to discipline again and again

Know HIS anger lasts only a moment, but HIS favor lasts a lifetime your heart to win

Weeping may last for the night, but joy comes with the morning when the sun will glisten

Trying to find my place

Want to know YOUR will

YOU may just want me still

My heart to seek YOUR face

I’m in a hurry to discover FATHER

How my gifts are to be used

For YOUR Spirit overflow infused

Faith, hope, love outpour Living Water

Giving all I am to serve YOU first

To those who need YOU most

Until those are found and knows

The Way, the Truth, the Life for worth

Dying to self lose haste

Want YOUR will to fulfill

YOUR wisdom to instill

YOUR goodness to taste

Bring YOU more sons and daughters

Save souls as wise proves

YOUR Words of Truth renews

All of us the clay molds by the Potter

Living Water is able to quench our thirst

Willing and available where YOU go goes

Grace, mercy, and compassion grow shows

Follow wholeheartedly as desires come true when delights immersed

Arriving at the destination if its YOU I chase

Waiting on YOU renew my strength, restore my soul, refill

Forgetting what is behind going for the goal heavenward until

I’m in YOUR arms away from harms to hear well done embrace

Continuing onward for YOU are the Finisher of my faith Author

Trusting your leading and guiding to be who you want me to be choose

Find my life to lose, no, rather lose my life for YOUR name sake enthuse

Rewriting my story to enjoy good health even as my soul will prosper

YOU give choice of life and death, blessing or curse

YOU hold the keys to life and death, because YOU died then arose

I take YOU up on the life and blessing part impart better than any med dose

YOU are the Good Shepherd and Pastor of the lambs and sheep to gather the dispersed
