There Are Times

Lord, to many times now I seem to always lose my way,
Trying to make sure I am walking in Your light each day.
This is simply because as soon as I start feeling weak,
I seem to start to forget Your way is what I need to seek.

You see I get lost often in all the distractions that occur,
Then all the rights and wrongs in my life all start to blur.
Lord I need Your help to focus on always putting You first,
I know living my life without You would be nothing worst.

I wish after so many years of working hard seeking You,
That always keeping You first in life would be easy to do.
Now even the times when I know I should kneel and pray,
Living life seems to often keep me from following Your way.

I understand why it is so important now to read Your word,
Many people lie and distort Your truth as I have often heard.
The real reason why does not matter as their end goal is clear,
They desire to keep us all who believe in You in perpetual fear.

Lord, please give me the wisdom I need to serve you each day,
And the strength to share with others the joys of Your Son’s way.
Help me to never again give into temptations & the need to repent,
And to spread the news that Your free gift of Grace is Heaven sent!!

What Do You Know

What do you know about living so your life is not a disgrace?
How do you tell if your efforts living life haven’t been misplaced?
What do you know about making two into becoming just one?
How do you tell if the one you desire is truly from God & His Son?
What do you know about helping others in need that you’ve seen?
How do you tell if your actions didn’t cause problems unforeseen?
What do you know about helping others find God’s one true path?
How do you tell if your help did not cause them anger and wrath?
What do you know about finding the peace when others disagree?
How do you tell if your suggestions are helpful to those in need?

This & much more can be found in one place each time that you look,
Because God made sure that all the answers to life were in His Book.
So if you desire to have answers to how to live your life at hand today,
Call on the one true God for His Grace and be sure to follow His way!!

When I

When I reach the end of my day,
I often fall on my knees to pray.
But the times I take to talk to God,
Seems to be only when my life is hard.
When days go by with little confusion,
Not thanking God is a foolish delusion.

I know that for me He will always be there,
But when life is good I seem not to care.
Wrong as this is I still seem to forget,
In good times or bad even when in debt,
That God’s love for me will always be there,
And no matter what I do, He will always care!!

Take My Hand

Take my hand if you want to be free,
Take my hand if you want to be with me,
Take my hand & you’ll always have my love,
Salvation is a gift from your Father above.

It doesn’t matter were you are in life,
If you are single, a husband or a wife.
It doesn’t matter what you have to do,
If you call on me I will be there for you.

Take my hand if you want to be free,
Take my hand if you want to be with me,
Take my hand & you’ll always have my love,
Salvation is a gift from your Father above.

My love has no limits and cannot be measured,
I promise my love will be your greatest treasure.
I sent my Son to die for all your sins,
I did this so Satan could never win.

Take my hand if you want to be free,
Take my hand if you want to be with me,
Take my hand & you’ll always have my love,
Salvation is a gift from your Father above.

To me you are more precious than you know,
And without my love your soul can not grow.
It’s always free and there is nothing to do,
My Gift of Grace is always there for you.

Take my hand if you want to be with me,
Take my hand & you’ll always have my love,
Salvation is a gift from your Father above.

If you have faith that is all you need,
I will send the Holy Spirit & you will be freed.
Then when you finally take you last breath,
Rest assured you’ve overcome the second death.

Take my hand if you want to be free,
Take my hand if you want to be with me,
Take my hand & you’ll always have my love,
Salvation is a gift from your Father above!!

Why Can’t I 

To my loving wife:

It never seems right no matter what I say or do,
I am never able to find the way I can please you.
The words are wrong or the tone is not quite right,
No matter the words I use we always seem to fight.

Where did it all go wrong and we lost our connection,
Why are you now unable to return my love & affection.
The harder I try to love you the angrier you seem to be,
Tell me what to do so you’ll again show your love to me.

Is there any hope left in your heart that you can’t find,
Why can you not see I will love you until the end of time.
I’ve tried everything I know to make you happy again,
Please show me what to do as I am ready to begin.

I pray day and night for God to heal both our hearts,
I need you desperately and I never want to be apart.
So Dear please give me a sign that you want my love,
And pray with me to be together forever to God above.

I am waiting to hear from you to let me know you care,
In my heart God says He can heal us through our prayers.
So pray with me at least one more time will you please,
Because it’s you & your love that I want and I truly need!!

I Won’t Compromise 

I won’t compromise,
Are you suprised?
Life on my knees,
My soul at ease.
Peace from prayer,
God’s always there.

Evil still growing,
No sign of slowing.
Wanting it to end,
Then I can begin.
Life with God above,
Eternity & His love.

I will always believe,
His way is for me.
He accepts my petition,
My sins are forgiven.
Freedom from all sin,
Only comes from Him.

I won’t compromise,
Now are you suprised?
Nothing is impossible,
His love is unstoppable.
I will always be heard,
Spreading God word.

We Are Meant To Be

To my loving wife:

I know it is hard at times for you to see,
That together in life we are meant to be.
God had a plan designed just for His Son
Plus He had a purpose for making us one,

Do not blame me when we have no control,
It’s only God’s Grace that can save your soul.
Satan does his best to ruin life for everyone,
But God gave us a way to win through His Son.

He only wants the best for us all every day,
But together we both must ask when we pray.
The true power of Christ only comes by prayer,
This is the message together we must share.

What can I say to you except God loves you,
There is nothing in life for you He wouldn’t do.
I know I could never love you as much as God,
But I truly promise to try to no matter how hard.

Remember that God does have a plan for everyone,
And he designed our paths to come together as one.
So please never believe that we are not meant to be,
Because like God, I will love you forever & an eternity!!
