Above Everything

God is the lover of your soul
Only in Him can you be whole
Jesus is Lord and King
He is above everything
Life is in His hand
Sovereign over the land
He will guard your life
And remove needless strife
He will bring you peace
So fear and worry cease
Only He can deploy
An endless amount of joy
Go to Him and for joy ask
For Him, giving is an easy task
He really does care for us
Gracious and loving is Jesus

Hope to Cope

You can more than cope
If Jesus is your hope
All that you can scope
Plus fear and worry is a nope
No need to be a dope
Put all of your hope
In Jesus, who is Lord & King
He can help you with everything
Yes, every single thing
If you make Jesus Lord & King
Your heart will joyfully sing
Peace, hope, contentment He will bring
His love & care is better than anything

Help Came

I feel like I’ve been had
this leaves me quite sad.
If only I could break out
and not give way to doubt.
I feel like my life is a wreck
I can’t say, “What the heck!”
I feel so ugly inside
it makes me want to hide.
I know it’s definitely not God
making me feel like a fraud.
I’ll tell God how I feel
sometimes I wonder what’s real.
I don’t want to go on this way
no, not one more day!
I am trying to abide
but I feel fried.
I don’t want to be down
nor do I want to frown.
Enough is enough!
No more of this stuff.
Tomorrow is a new day
to this I say hooray!
I will thank my God
to Him I applaud.
Thank you Lord for coming to me
You have come and set me free.
I can be on my way
now, I’m free to pray.
Thank you for all that You do
You do know how much I love You.

So Sad

One little doubt let in
surely does take my grin.
The battle rages on
I am now forlorn.
For what does it matter?
I feel I’m useless chatter.
What is the use?
Will I ever be loose?
I don’t want things to be on my own
I want them to come straight from Your throne.
I feel like what’s the use
I’ve had so much abuse.
I know this is the wrong way
I feel I don’t even know how to pray.
No matter what I do
I feel it’s not enough for You.
You are so kind
am I out of my mind?
Your words I have heard
And now they think I’m absurd.
I feel I’ve been belted around
and my feet are on shaky ground.
I worry about this and that
they all need to scat.
When I am filled with dread
You are the lifter of my head.
My mind, it does roam
And here You’ve given me a poem.
I haven’t written one in so long
Nor have I written You a song.
When I cry out to You
You know exactly what to do.
You dry my tears
take all my fears.
You restore my life once more
You restore my inner core.
You, O God, are so wonderful to me
It makes me want praise Thee.
All I need to do
is spend time with You.

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!

Take It to the Lord

If you are feeling down and blue
Take it to the Lord in prayer
~
If you feel so all alone
Take it to the Lord in prayer
~
If you hurt or have pain
Take it to the Lord in prayer
~
If you have guilt or shame
Take it to the Lord in prayer
~
If you are tired or weary
Take it to the Lord in prayer
~
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
~
If encouragement is what you need
Take it to the Lord in prayer
~
Whatever the pain or gain
Take it to the Lord in prayer
~
If you need help
Take it to the Lord in prayer
~
All that we need
comes from the Lord by prayer
For He truly does care.
~
When you do
get through
make sure you
take care
not to spare
“Thank you God” 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.
