Hand

Your gracious gentle hand
supports me to stand.
When I am down and feeling blue
Your loving hand pulls me through.
It is Your hand that leads the way
I put my hand in Yours each day.
Your hand keeps me from falling
it also keeps me from hauling
an unnecessary load
on any kind of road.
~~~
His hand keeps me from the snare,
but it is not just the physical care.
He showers me from above
with His unending love.
His hand supports me
when I feel queasy.
He takes my fear
when He is near.
His hand, His hand,
is where I am free to stand.

Not Dead

I am not dead,
I have been wed
to the One above
who sends His love.

I am not in defeat
communion with Him is sweet.
I will feel swell
when with Him I dwell.

Even though I can’t see
He takes good care of me.
He turns my face
to see His grace.

There are many interruptions
trying to cause corruptions.
All my love You deserve
You I will faithfully serve.

On the Brink

When you do not stink
You are on the brink
And it’s not what you think
Look up, you’ll see Him wink

You will be pleased
For God has eased
The moment God has seized
It’s not that you’ve appeased

So come now
Dry your brow
God will show you how
To go out and plow

There is so much ground
Good soil is around
Look and it will be found
Your planting will be sound

I want you to know
you plant, I make grow
New life will show
I will lead you where to go

Type of Season

God does not owe us,
so why do we fuss?
It is by His grace
that we’re in this place.
If there is pressure,
then it is for sure
that there is a good reason
for this type of season.
~~~
If we endure
God will ensure
a good outcome,
so don’t be dumb
trust in the Lord God.
When He uses His rod
it is for our own good,
and by it we should
turn from our harmful ways
giving Him honor and praise.
Then we would walk upright
and be pleasing in His sight.
We must never forget
there need not be regret.
God remembers our sin no more;
He does not keep score.
He always does forgive
freeing us to live
with Him in peace.
If only to Him we release
what bothers our mind
in Him we will find
a wonderful solace,
which would be bliss.

Do You

Do you go before your God
to give Him honor and laud?
Or do you only go to Him
when your life is bleak and dim?
Do you only seek His hand,
or do you adhere to His command?
Of Him, what is your contemplation?
Are you seeking a true relation?
If we could only see
the truth about God Almighty
we would be totally indebted
and regret all we’ve fretted;
our thoughts, ways, and stuff
complaining we don’t have enough,
and wanting so much more
even though we have galore.
We all have a plateful,
so we should be grateful.
