LOST WITHOUT JESUS

LOST WITHOUT JESUS

Brokenness will dog our steps
No matter our clout-No healing for the lost
Healing comes from Jesus
We will be with Jesus or we will be lost

Jesus paid it all – praises to Him
Thankfulness wells up from our soul
We don’t start with Christ and move on
We will be with Jesus or we will be lost

Sin brings helplessness – dead in our sin
Sin cauterizes our heart – it stomps out our yearning to praise
Our heartbeat is hollow those days
We will be with Jesus or we will be lost

Doesn’t matter how lost – the ground is level at the cross
Everyone comes the same way – No one can pay the price
Jesus paid it all – while we were dead in our trespass and sin Christ died for us
We will be with Jesus or we will be lost

Praise His name – hallelujah -Jesus is Lord
I am so grateful He saved me
Every moment clinging to Him-He lives in me
We will be with Jesus or we will be lost

I claim His promises for life – He guides me in paths of righteousness
The evil I face – Jesus faced it first
He walks ahead of me – He knows the way
We will be with Jesus or we will be lost

All of our victory is in Jesus
We are not called to know the future
We are called to work and do what Jesus says
We will be with Jesus or we will be lost

Jesus is worthy of all our praise – We live and breathe because of Him
His live gives us life – Lord I am grateful
Thank you for today
We will be with Jesus or we will be lost

Blessings abound in each of our lives – count them
Thank Jesus – all praise is due Him
Keep your eyes on Christ – Remember who you are and whose you are
We will be with Jesus or we will be lost

Who?

Who has a God like our God?

He is our rock, our fortress

Who has a God like our God?
Before anything began
He saw us
He knew our greatest need
Three in One, His provision made

Who has a God like our God?
He knows our great need
Forgiveness of our sin
His righteousness in Christ
A relationship with Him

A God of justice and fairness
Speaking to us in His Bible

A gift free for the asking

BE GLAD

BE GLAD

You’ve heard your master’s voice
Come follow me
You know He’s speaking to you
It takes your choice
Be glad

The Gospel is His calling
Would that all might come
Many are there to hear from you
You are His choice
Be Glad

Now we know so little
Even the brightest miss out
Jesus came to forgive us
His Word is our concern
Be glad

Today is all we have
Tomorrow never comes
Speak the truth of Jesus
With love and concern
Be glad

Those that hear may spurn you
Some choose to spit
Still they must hear about
The God whose love we need
Be glad

Happy are the children
That do what Christ has done
Caring for others
Sharing God’s Word
Be Glad

One day soon
Today will fly away
You will stand in His presence
Well done He will say
Be glad

SIN SPEAKS

SIN SPEAKS

Sin speaks
From the depths of our heart
Calling us to do our own thing
Go where you want to go
Think what you want to think

God calls us to discipline
Thief steal no more
Liar tell the truth
Adulterer stop, now

It’s a difficult situation
We find ourselves in
Strength and courage are rewarded
Discipline is heavily criticized

Lord why?
Why do we sin so much?
Satan gets us started
Then we sin on our own

I cry out to the Lord
I am drowning in a sea of sin
The Lord responds
Take my hand-together we will win

WALK LIKE A ROMAN!

Proud, fierce and focused
A Roman was most envied

Engineers of renown
Roads built to tame a world
Bridges spanning any obstacle
Order out of chaos
A hard life led by hard men

They were great adapters
You may have discovered it
The Romans made it better
There armies were ferocious
Their buildings majestic

Nothing could stand in their way
Except themselves
Their decadence renowned
Destroyed their strength
One day it fell to the ground

The glory of Rome no more
Hard times less their empire
The northerners ruled Rome
Their empire had no home
This place once known as Rome

TODAY

Today

Lord hear me, I am in need of You
I desire your answer
As You bend down to listen
I know you hear me
I know my needs are often selfish
Point me in the right direction

Lord hear me
I need answers to my fears
Direction for my cares
When I’m in trouble I know You listen

Lord hear me
You are my God
I desperately seek to serve You
Underscore my surrender
Help me to listen to you

THE LION – JEANETTE HENRY – 2/4/2019

Brilliant, committed, focused on her role-wife, mother, grand
She brought stability to a pressured life
Her strength-family focus, husband needs, church value
An outstanding Bible teacher

Gifted in developing Sunday School classes, in serving the Lord
A lion, capable and smart and strong
She was the type of mother her family needed
The wife that matched Brother Jim’s larger than life persona

How can you count the ways a person measures-up
Jeanette was trustworthy, friend worthy
Capable, witty, youthful, vibrant, vivacious
A Southern beauty with a constitution of steel

An accomplished adventurer
Mission minded, well-spoken and genuine
A courageous servant, erudite speaker
Exceptional teacher, a local legend

Jeanette was never too busy to help
Too engaged to care
Too focused to miss the needs around her
She valued people and committed her life to help and to serve

Jeanette was a blessing to all she met
An expert caregiver, she knew how to help
Her life was orderly, prayerful and faithful
Jesus was the center of her existence

The Lord used her in a multitude of roles
Jeanette was always willing, always fresh
She listened to the Lord, and comprehended the needs
Now face to face with Jesus, Jeanette is walking by sight

LIFE’S VALUE

LIFE’S VALUE
Victories are not the measure
Of a person’s life
Who did they help
Who helped them
Write the score
That which does not rot of disintegrate
Builds Value and worth
By the people you help and
things you give

All we deal with is passing away
People are eternal
Giving once done can never be taken away
Life has a way of tearing us down
Caring for others rebuilds our losses

We never know
what challenges we will face
Build grace and good
In people you know and
Those you don’t
Jesus says they are eternal

Jesus is God’s everything
He knows what we will face
He walks with us
He will not let us go
His love is eternal
Simply do what Jesus says
Life will blossom and grow
