New Height

This is about,
That awful doubt.
Doubt is such a bad thing.
It’s power sure does sting.
~
Doubt leaves you high and dry.
It makes you want to cry.
Doubt is such a pain.
There is nothing to gain.
~
When doubt takes over,
You’re in trouble moreover.
Because you’ve let it in,
It develops into sin.
~
All these doubts inside.
They do not try to hide.
It may start out just as one.
Before you know it, there’s a ton!
~
A doubt can be a sly little devil,
Keeping you from the right level.
It brings you down fast,
If you let them last.
~
They dwell inside your being.
They keep you from seeing.
The truth that does abound,
Is no where to be found.
~
Truth gets pushed aside,
While doubt goes for a ride.
It goes where it wants,
And it certainly haunts!
~
Doubt tries to fill you full.
You now are in a pull.
It likes to rule your life,
Bringing a great deal of strife.
~
Once this is made known,
The seed that was sown,
Must be removed,
In order to improve.
~
A battle will take place.
Doubt wants to win the race.
You must grab a hold.
Stand firm. Be bold.
~
The battle will be hard and long.
Don’t give in, and be strong.
It will be over at last,
If you’ve been steadfast.
~
Keep your eyes on the Lord.
Keep your hands on the Sword.
If you do this,
You can not miss.
~
Doubt will soon go away,
But will come another day.
Do not put your guard down,
For doubt likes to hang aroun’.
~
Eventually it will get tired,
And find a new place to be hired.
Make sure you don’t give in,
For this is the only way to win.
~
Call upon His name.
This is my claim.
Remember, before you fight,
He will show you what is right.
~
He will bring you to a new height,
For you have fought a good fight.
You are precious in His sight,
And in you He does delight!

If you can’t seem to manage the load
Take it to the Lord in prayer
~
If you can’t find the right road
Take it to the Lord in prayer
~
If worry and doubts grab a hold of you
Take it to the Lord in prayer

Take it to the Lord in prayer

Rearrange

Here I am again
Your love is amen
I am in the midst of change
Lord come and rearrange
~
Lead me to be
Where I need to go
~
Take me by the hand
May I boldly stand
Not swerve left or right
Lord, shine Your light bright
~
Guide me in Your grace
Wrong doing erase
~
Lord, my faith increase
May all doubt decrease
Keep me from being in a hurry
Take all the fear and worry

Why

Why do I worry so
for God does know.
It was God’s thought
that brought
me peace of mind.
I did find
and understood
just how good
all this was.
God surely does
know what I need
I don’t need to plead.
He is ALWAYS there
taking extra good care.
I wish I could forget
how to fret.
To stay in peace
would surely cease
the contrary thought
which is always for naught.
God knows what He’s doing
so I need to start chewing
on trusting in Him
and not give way to whim.
I must not let go
of the truth I know,
and when I’m not sure
He will send a cure.
On Him I will wait
He’s a sure date.
This truth I know
the Bible tells me so.

Work Done

When my work was done,
I decided to have some fun.
I’d take a long walk
to my Lord I’d talk.
~
It is a beautiful day
on this March Friday.
The rain is done
and now there’s sun.
~
The sun is shining bright
It’s such a pretty sight.
There’s a warmth in the air,
yes God does care.
~
There’s no need to worry
and no need to hurry.
We can now rest
knowing we are blessed.
