I HAVE TO BELIEVE I AM WHO I AM IN I AM (Song Lyrics)

I have to believe I am who I am in I AM
Because in Him, I live and move and have my being
So I am all that He says I am, and that’s the truth
Lord, in Your mercy, give me eyes opened, all seeing

I have to believe I am who I am in I AM
His Word says I’m His child, beautifully created
Healed, worthy and cleansed, safe, forgiven and bathed in love
Lord, I’m so sorry I took so much time and waited

I have to believe I am who I am in I AM
No more condemnation, no more wandering alone
You’ve given me rest, peace, that the world can’t comprehend
Lord, You have turned my heart to flesh, where once there was stone

I have to believe I am who I am in I AM
Made every whit whole, and Your Name do I magnify
Justified, glorified, I now have the mind of Christ
Lord, You found me, I was lost, Your word, did satisfy

Yes, in Christ, I am no longer hurting
In Christ, at last I am finally me
’Cause in Christ I am no longer searching
For eternal love that can set me free

IT’S A JOYFUL DAY (Song Lyrics)

cartoon love birds pattern 04 vector

The birds sing heaven’s melody
The crisp air, it beckons praise
Nature’s cups, they open slowly
Ready to reflect His gaze

Listen to the love they’re singing
Every note holds mystery
History from times past till now
Your name’s there in His story

Chorus
You may be feeling lonely
You may be feeling blue
You may have given up
Please don’t
’Cause He’s in love with you

Take each song and make it your own
Hear the Lord gently calling
You’ve been given beautiful life
Raised up when you were falling

Yes, it can be so difficult
When everything seems just lost
Are you battling beyond belief
It took all, His death it cost

Bridge
O joyful day, O joyful day
Though the skies may be stormy and dark and grey
O joyful day, O joyful day
Receive Jesus in your heart and there He’ll stay

No, I haven’t experienced
Hurt and pain that some go through
Please come to the Father above
There’s peace through His Son, it’s true

Chorus
You may be feeling lonely
You may be feeling blue
You may have given up
Please don’t
’Cause He’s in love with you

Yes, He’s in love with you

HAVING DONE ALL, I STAND (Song Lyrics)

the whole armor of god

Chorus
Having done all, I stand
Upon the solid Rock, not man
I cannot do anymore, ‘tis Your command
To be the best I can be, the best I can

To be the best I can be, the best I can
Only in Christ, can this manifest
I’ve tried so hard; but that’s not what You desire
You say be still, and in You, come rest

But Lord, I’m here, don’t I have to do something
Waves are alashing, I need help now
I have on my helmet, breastplate, and sandals
Belt, sword and shield, Your word shows me how

How to pray, and pray, and pray in the Spirit
Then to stand, and trust all unto You
Help me to stand firm, love embraced, not fear it
Fear definitely not sent from You

Chorus
Having done all, I stand
Upon the solid Rock, not man
I cannot do anymore, ‘tis Your command
To be the best I can be, the best I can

You have not given me the spirit of fear
But of power, love and a sound mind
And my heart always beats next to Yours, so dear
Kept forever safe, with mercies kind

Time does not keep you from love across the miles
Lord, please show me, show me how to stand
How does it look to stand midst the fiery trials
I can do it, if You take my hand

Bridge
I stand because You ask me to
I stand because I’m free
Free to follow Jesus
I stand because I’m me

Chorus
Having done all, I stand
Upon the solid Rock, not man
I cannot do anymore, ‘tis Your command
To be the best I can be, the best I can

ALL BEING WELL (Song Lyrics)

IMG_8105.JPG

Chorus
I’ll see you in the morning
All being well
When darkness lifts
And new light shines
Upon the day to come
Yes, I’ll see you in the morning
All being well

How do you tell
A loved one whom you love
That only in Christ Jesus
Will all be well

How do you tell
A loved one whom you love
That only in forgiveness
Will all be well

How do you tell
A loved one whom you love
That only through heaven’s Love
Will all be well

Chorus
I’ll see you in the morning
All being well
When darkness lifts
And new light shines
Upon the day to come
Yes, I’ll see you in the morning
All being well

Only in salvation
Only in His pure, free love
Only believing and receiving truth
Will you be well

Only in the Shepherd
Only as one of His sheep
Only allowing yourself to be led
Will you be well

All will be well
In the morning bright
Dear sweet loved one
May the Lord speak to you this night

THIS IS YOUR BREAKTHROUGH CALLING (A Song of Deliverance)

This is Your Breakthrough Calling

There was a time, a long time
When you’d almost given up
The trials were overwhelming
As you drank of affliction’s cup
But I was there all along
And I’m forever with you now
And throughout it all
Through many tears, much pain
Heaven still was blessed
With love, praise and no disdain

Chorus
This is your breakthrough calling
I’m here at last, at last
There were so many obstacles in My way
But now all doubt and fear has passed

This answered prayer is for all
Who have been struggling so
When prayers seem like they’re silenced
When release, it just doesn’t show
Maybe as you’re reading this
And My Word is laid before you
Take heart My dear one
‘Cause help is on its way
Believe, believe and trust
Breakthrough will break through this day

Bridge
I wanted you to break through
Break through, break through, push through
And with My help, you were never alone
Together, rejoice, you’re through

Chorus
This is your breakthrough calling
I’m here at last, at last
There were so many obstacles in My way
But now all doubt and fear has passed

You’re through, you’re through
And My Name is glorified
You’re through, My child, you’re through
My love now seen and glorified

I’VE SET THE TABLE OF LOVE, DEAR LORD (A Song of Surrender)

I'VE SET THE TABLE OF LOVE, DEAR LORD

Candles burning brightly
Flowers laden with dew
I’ve set the table of love, dear Lord
In my heart where there’s room for two

Come take a seat beside me
This chair’s had Your name engraved
I just never recognized its meaning
Until, my heart, You mercifully saved

Chorus
I’m ready, I’m ready
No longer afraid to change
I’ve set the table of love, dear Lord
I’m ready to accept, accept and change

I’ve laid my all before You
And I pray You’ll never leave
Drink of my cup of love and praise, Lord
And cherish that I now believe

There’s much upon my heart, dear Lord
There’s much upon my heart
I’ve gathered all of my weaknesses, Lord
In Your strength lies a brand new start

Chorus
I’m ready, I’m ready
No longer afraid to change
I’ve set the table of love, dear Lord
I’m ready to accept, accept and change

Plates of anguish, cups of fear
Much to chew upon, You listen, You smile
I go on and on and on and on, sorry Lord
This banquet of mine might go for a while

And then the table’s emptied
And all has been revealed
You sweetly reach across, take my hand
Say You love me and that my future’s sealed

Chorus
I’m ready, I’m ready
No longer afraid to change
I’ve set the table of love, dear Lord
I’m ready to accept, accept and change

Upon the lacework of my emotions, Lord
You’ve opened this heart of stone
You’ve set Your place, filled the cup of salvation
And I know I’ll never again dine alone

O I’m ready, I’m ready
My heart’s ready, the time has come
My heart’s ready, it’s ready and now belongs to You
Jesus, my heart belongs to You

BY FAITH, I’LL CARRY ON (A Song of Encouragement)

BY FAITH, I'LL CARRY ON

Sheltering in the shadow of His everlasting arms
I may feel defeated
But by faith I’ll carry on
‘Cause Jesus is alive and living
Way, way, way up yonder
And He’s sent the sweet, sweet Comforter
So with peace our hearts rest and ponder
No longer in the darkness do we wander

Oh! Jesus, Jesus, why did You love us so
The pain, the shame, the tears you wept
Could never fill our blunder
But to the cross, I believe the angels led
And washed the path before You
With promise of sweet victory
Amidst the blood-soaked flowers blue
And overflowing joy filled a heart so true

Chorus
Oh! I’m sheltering in the shadows of His everlasting arms
I may feel defeated
But by faith I’ll carry on
Yes by faith, I’ll carry on

You spread Your arms and encased the world
All sin was laid upon You
And even though the cross, it held You there
Your heart crushed and shed nothing belonging
Oh! Dear Carpenter, the wounds were deep
Your anguish reached the heavens
Releasing love back to those who weep
Those who the darkness can no longer keep

Chorus
Oh! I’m sheltering in the shadows of His everlasting arms
I may feel defeated
But by faith I’ll carry on
Yes by faith, I’ll carry on

silhouette woman tree

Even more beautiful … Please be blessed as I have been.

PLEASE HUG THEM (for those who are hurting)
Tears are welling up inside
I see so much around me
Turmoil, sadness, unbelief
Too much for this heart to see

Children crying, some dying
Hunger, thirst, poverty
No love given, no love there
Vacant eyes stare distantly

Chorus
There are so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
Sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug your loved ones
Those in need, today
Please hug them Lord in Jesus’ name
And take their pain away

Women lost without their homes
Men despair without income
Families torn, separated
Floods, fires and storms make them numb

Watching death take victory
Among them that are so close
Feeling left behind and worthless
Overwhelmed by each new dose

Chorus
There are so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
Sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug your loved ones
Those in need, today
Please hug them Lord in Jesus’ name
And take their pain away

Bridge
Hug them as they’ve never been hugged before
Hug them till love opens heaven’s door
Hug them till their knees lower to the floor
And with joy they praise and adore

So that is why I cry now
And stand before You broken
Release them from emptiness
Let Love be heard and spoken

All Your creatures are groaning
And nothing can stay the same
Daily there is tragedy
Lord, reveal Your great Name

Chorus
There are so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
Sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug your loved ones
Those in need, today
Please hug them Lord in Jesus’ name
And take their pain away
And take their pain away

SNOW GLOBE HEART (Song Lyrics)

It’s been a while since I wrote any song lyrics … I hope you enjoy these!

realistic christmas snow globe with christmas gift in it vector

It’s Christmas time around the world
The snow is gently falling
Homes ring out, much jubilation
Young and old in harmony

And as the hour is counting down
Slowly eyes, they find their sleep
Trying hard to stay wide awake
Midst final preparation

Chorus
Oh! See the snow falling upon your life
When all is well, purity covers strife
Little snowflakes, making your heart landscape
A joy to behold, no need to escape

But within the frosty shadows
A heart refuses to shine
Not even in the excitement
Of the night, can warmth, it smile

’Cause a little child, a child’s heart
Grown one, lost in memory
Doesn’t matter how old the years
When hearts are cold, love is gone

Chorus
Oh! See the snow falling upon your life
When all is well, purity covers strife
Little snowflakes, making your heart landscape
A joy to behold, no need to escape

So be embraced by heaven’s Gift
Though found in times of shaking
Surround your life, your loved ones too
Forever all season’s hope

Bridge
May love find all that is lost
May joy receive Her King
May peace line each footstep
Throughout earth, may all hearts sing

Chorus
Oh! See the snow falling upon your life
When all is well, purity covers strife
Little snowflakes, making your heart landscape
A joy to behold, no need to escape
