THE BEGINNING

THE BEGINNING

Faithful to the Lord
Following Christ from somewhere to nowhere
A place unknown, except for the fear
The Lord said go, she went

Applied her heart and mind
In service and in the classroom
A second language, still she thrived
It wasn’t easy but it was right

Her life was hid in Christ
She succeeded where so many failed
Her faith grew, service too
The Lord sent friends her way

A hard worker, a kind person
She drew various ones by her charisma
Now she was known, friends, success
Still she focused on Christ, her life

Corey came, her heart flamed
But not without a great deal of prayer
Now husband and wife, combined life
She continued her walk with Christ

Missions, missions, missions
A degree, home, return
All of her actions pointing to Christ
Her life faithful, she follows the Lord

A leader, a reader, a friend
A worker, a servant, now His leader
Missions the center of her work
She lives where the Lord has called

There is still the unknown, no one knows the future
Blanca simply serves wherever Christ leads
A wonder, a servant, a friend, a leader
Her life is hid in Christ with God

BE KIND

BE kind to the poor
The hurting
The alien at your door
Seek to help, to stand for
Be kind to the poor

The Lord will rescue you
He will see you through
Every heartache and failure
Protecting you and yours
If you are kind to the poor

Prosperity will follow you
The Lord will nurse you in sickness
He will restore your health
He will heal your sin
Protect your life
If you are kind to the poor

We are our brothers/sisters keeper
People count with the Lord
He uses us to help the abused
Healing our confusion
Life is often unfair
We must be kind to the poor

Lord I have so little
But I am wealthy in You
Help me to be kind to the poor
To give what I can
To do my best
To be kind to the poor

Grace

Before the world created
God provided for our redemption
Raised us up in Jesus
He Already provides the grace
We so desperately need

All of us shifting feet
Dealing with the anxiety of life
Peace comes unbidden
Part of His gift of lIfe

He provides the wisdom
Our heart consistently needs
Blessing us with every
Spiritual blessing
Even before our need

Jesus is God’s everything
Equipping us to be
The kind of person
In our minds eye
We knew we could be

Today draw a line
No more will you roam
Hither and yon
To find the news
Christ has come to you

Let this be your lesson
God has a hold on you
He will not let you stumble
You will never, ever
Be out of His control

Peace and grace aplenty
Joy inside of you
Christ shares all of His blessings
Everyday with you

HOW WICKED!

How wicked
Bethsaida, Chorazin and Capernaum.
More evil than the pagans
Jesus did great work here
Totally ignored

The religious had God in a box
Refused to follow Jesus
They knew best
Even though God was on site
They were dead in their trespasses
Deaf in their sin
They thought they were the object

God grace we need
He is Christ the Lord
Came to us
Died for us
Risen to take a stand
Offering us freedom

Therefore
We live for His glory
He loves us
An Overwhelming love
He Forgives our sin
He Brings us in
He will never let us go

GOING UP THIS DAY

GOING UP THIS DAY

What is it that beckons me to Israel
Christ is with me wherever I go
Something speaks deep in my soul
Jesus lives here, this is His place
Walking there reveals the reality
Of His walk on Earth
I know Him and now l see Him
Amazing that Jesus was really here

Scripture comes alive
The black and white in living color
I’ve seen His cities, I’m seeing His land
The miracles He works in my life
Were done in this land
Scriptural events are not myths
They are actual facts with real people involved
I see Him being baptized
His family walked here
His teachings were done here

The Judean Hills wrap around me
My gaze to the Crest
The gentle slopes lead up to the Holy City
Jerusalem just above

Always we go up to Jerusalem
It is the Lord’s habitation
He is calling us to His home
We willingly journey there
Seeking to know and be known
As we grow we know
As we serve we are known

I was told these things
Now I’ve seen these things
Jesus was in the flesh, alive and here

HURTING HEARTS

HURTING HEARTS

Hurting hearts, destroyed lives
Everywhere I look
Boys and girls living in strife
Parents befuddled and lost
Jesus came that we might have life
Abundant life

He is seeking the lost
A hand out to the hurting
Willingly identifying with the outcast
In Christ we find light for living
And life worth living
He knows where we are
He has come to us

The World says we have no worth
We seek to sear our hearts
All we see is failure and pain
Jesus comes to heal our pain
To give us value and worth
What we do has meaning
We are our brothers and sisters keeper
We can do those things that lift us up

Drugs are not the cure
Life in Christ gives us a new heart
A valuable life
Forgiveness flows like a river
To us, and through us in daily torrents
His grace is sufficient to meet our need

Jesus is Lord
Jesus is Lord of all
He is Lord of our hearts
He is Lord of our pain
He is Lord of our value and worth
In Christ I find the reason I need
To face the hardship of today
To dispel the pain of the past
To propel me into the future
Jesus is our hope

LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER

LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER

Let God speak first
When your world is undone
Your heart has sunk
Peace has run
No joy In disappointed-Ville

Cast all your cares upon Him
He is God and He cares for you
He gives to us
He desires to be with us
He loves you

He calls us to pray freely
Ask anything
He gives us only good things
He dispels our anxiety
Especially pain and heartache

Forgive me Lord as you begin
He will, He has, He does
Rich, deep and wide
His grace is sufficient

Know Him better
Lord as I pray
Reveal yourself to me
That I might grow
That I might serve
Help me to forgive
As I am forgiven
And wisdom for living

Help me to obey
Your Word
Your laws
Those I know and ignore
Things I’ve not thought
All of your direction

I will do as you say Father
Your way is my way
I will set aside my ego
Exercising self-control
Today you reign supreme in me
I am yours
Thank you on bended knees

LIGHT IN THE LAND

Let there be light
The Lord declares
As the Word of God begins
Each of us in need of truth
Each in need of love

Christ came to the least of us
And any of us
Knowing our need for light and life and truth
The Holy One, God’s Son
Stepped down from His throne
Willingly sacrificing Himself to come to us

We are not alone, we have access to the light
We do not have to be blind
Unless we ignore God
For light and life is sent to us
Christ has come

Every day can be a hard day
We choose the way we will grow
Dead to Christ is blind to self
Alive in Christ is life and growth
He is seeking us
Let Him have your heart
It is a choice, claim Christ

YOUR WAY!

YOUR WAY

New year, new day, new way
I will Lord, the key for me is: I will
Listen to your Word, hidden in my heart
Setting me apart, claiming my mind
Calming my soul
Your Word will make me whole

Walk your way, each day, every day
Conversations with you salted with quiet
Speak Lord, I will hear
You Lord have the floor
Scarred knees, broken heart
Your way Lord not mine

Surrender my ego, it’s not about me
A servant’s heart, needs galore
All around are your hurting ones
You’ve called me to help, to serve
Service is not a position of rulership
It issues forth from a loving soul
Love you with all my heart and soul
Love my brother, sister as myself

Forgive, forgive, forgive
Seventy times seven
As you forgive me, so I forgive others
Even those that are wrong, Father I forgive
Before they wrong me I forgive
When they are hurtful I forgive
When I am right I forgive

All that I do will be done in your sight
I will accept your correction
I will blaze a trail of joy and peace
My heart will be open, my life yours
Please do not give up on me
Lord Jesus I am yours!
