HE’LL BE WITH ME (Song Lyrics)

Written for a dear loved one who is hurting …

tropical storm is coming

Chorus
He’ll be with me in the wild, wild storms
Those which threaten to knock me over
He’ll be with me in the fiery trials
Those that still smolder under cover
When all seems hopeless, no end in sight
And darkness appears to be winning
I’ll look into His beautiful eyes
And know, He cared from the beginning

And so I cry
Father in heaven, I know You’re there; but I feel so very alone
Father, please speak the Word, and lift me to Your throne

All plans are crumbling fast, each day delivers grief
I’m being cornered, and it’s shaking my belief

I want to do what’s right, and shun all that is wrong
But waves and flames around me, have silenced my song

Each time I get back up, here comes the floor again
Trying hard to see You, forgetting all this pain

Chorus
He’ll be with me in the wild, wild storms
Those which threaten to knock me over
He’ll be with me in the fiery trials
Those that still smolder under cover
When all seems hopeless, no end in sight
And darkness appears to be winning
I’ll look into His beautiful eyes
And know, He cared from the beginning

But I know You’re there, and because of this, I say
Lord be magnified this day, magnified this day

For I can do nothing, and nothing I can do
To bring about deliverance, it’s up to You

And so I’ll rest in the storm, sing in the trial
This is not forever, only for a short while

I will get stronger, and the sorrows soon will leave
As long as my beating heart to Your heart, can cleave

I’ll listen to His word
For His word is all I need
His word created, sustains me
His word will always feed
And one day I’ll stand before Him
And be shown my life in His
I’ll see His protective arms locked in mine
With each breath He ever freed

Chorus
He’ll be with me in the wild, wild storms
Those which threaten to knock me over
He’ll be with me in the fiery trials
Those that still smolder under cover
When all seems hopeless, no end in sight
And darkness appears to be winning
I’ll look into His beautiful eyes
And know, He cared from the beginning

May This Prayer Entwine Your Family Tree

Family Tree Prayer

Dearest Heavenly Father,
I pray that the True Vine (Jesus) wrap around and protect our family tree.
Comfort us,
Feed us,
Support us,
Save us.
Lift us and place us beside streams of Living Water.
And may every leaf (Thy precious word) upon the True Vine hold sweet healings for each life in this tree.
May Your strength hold us amidst the storms of life.
May Your peace settle upon each decision we need to make.
May Your love flow in and through each heart.
Each battered heart.
Each hurting heart.
Each heart that doesn’t even know there is trouble.
Each heart that doesn’t know and acknowledge You.
Forgive us.
And may the fragrance of Your love envelop us.
May Thy joy and not the world’s joy fill us … sustain us.
And Your hope … keep us.
In the mighty Name of Jesus,
Amen.

My prayer for each family.
My family.

Shipwrecked; But Never, Ever Broken

Thank you Karrol for liking this older post. It came at a perfect time for me and I pray it will bless many who find themselves in the sea of affliction.

canary islands shipwreck ship

The ship tosses violently upon the open seas
The Captain’s in control; but the crew are full of fear
And with every fresh onslaught, they all cower lower
The Captain, though, with commanding voice, says, peace be still

Likewise, peace be still, He speaks silently to our hearts
The storms of life may appear that they are shattering
The ship of our lives, our hopes, our dreams, our course, our lives
Take your eyes off the storm, rest in His words, you’ll come through

It is as though He says, the Prince of Peace is saying
Some days are highs, some are lows, you will rise, you will fall
You may be drenched with the tears that you shed, I’ll dry them
You may be parched by the heat you bear, I am the Son

So if you’re battling raging storms upon worldly waves
Your ship will break, there’ll be none to save when you cry out
But with Eternity’s Best upon Living Waters
Your heart may be shipwrecked; but never, ever broken

PRAISING IN DARKNESS (Song Lyrics)

door goal house entrance
Chorus
Thrown into the darkness through the deepest prison door
I’m crying out to God for help, please help, I cannot do this anymore
My feet are bound, I can’t move forth, hope sinks to the floor
But then sweet praise, it rises, to the One I adore

It’s so, so dark
The light has gone
Doesn’t matter
How dark the storm

I won’t be scared
He’s here with me
In dark turmoil
Or calming sea

Chorus
Thrown into the darkness through the deepest prison door
I’m crying out to God for help, please help, I cannot do this anymore
My feet are bound, I can’t move forth, hope sinks to the floor
But then sweet praise, it rises, to the One I adore

The door has closed
Nothing is clear
But His word says
I must not fear

How long, how long
Till heaven’s key
Unlocks the door
And sets me free

Bridge
Praising in darkness
I’ll pray and I’ll sing
Glory and honour
To Jesus my King
Glory and honour
I’ll pray and I’ll sing
Praising in darkness
My voice, love will sing

And until then
I’ll sing, sing, sing
Mountains will move
Bow to the King

Once held captive
Door opens wide
Finally free
Freedom inside

Chorus
Thrown into the darkness through the deepest prison door
I’m crying out to God for help, please help, I cannot do this anymore
My feet are bound, I can’t move forth, hope sinks to the floor
But then sweet praise, it rises, to the One I adore

Acts 16
24 Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.
25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

THE BLUENESS OF MY HEART (A Song of Hope)

THE BLUENESS OF MY HEART

My eyes were drawn outside this morning to a beautiful, lone blue flower which had blossomed amidst heavenly showers … need I say more … another song was born … enjoy.

All glory to God.

THE BLUENESS OF MY HEART

Chorus
O the showers of Your blessings
Release the blueness of my heart
So I come before You humbly and pray
Lord, set the showers and storms apart

I need to feel Your presence Lord
Like sunlight melts the darkness of night
I need to feel Your presence Lord
And in mercy stand before You right

Chorus
O the showers of Your blessings
Release the blueness of my heart
So I come before You humbly and pray
Lord, set the showers and storms apart

In hours gone by, the rains have poured
And my heart has taken a lashing
In hours gone by, the rains have poured
Mingled with booming and forks flashing

Chorus
O the showers of Your blessings
Release the blueness of my heart
So I come before You humbly and pray
Lord, set the showers and storms apart

And now rivers of grace, they flow
Through my once tear-stained emotions
And now rivers of grace, they flow
Draining sadness into the ocean

‘Cause the showers of Your blessings
Release the blueness of my heart
The showers of Your blessings
O the showers of Your blessings
Have sprinkled joy in this once blue heart
Have sprinkled joy in this once blue heart

WAVE AFTER WAVE AFTER WAVE AND TEMPTATION (2 POEMS TODAY)

wave water sea

WAVE AFTER WAVE AFTER WAVE
O Lord, I feel like I’m in the ocean
Being pounded by wave after wave
And I know in my heart, ‘tis You Lord
You Lord that only can save, can save

Every turn of my head sees them coming
Wave after wave after wave
But there in the distance I see You
My Lord, coming toward me to save

I am lost between all the commotion
I am lost, I am lost at sea
O Jesus, can You see my dilemma
You smile, take my hand, rescue me

******* ******* *******

TEMPTATION
Temptation has many faces
That hide within the crowd
Some pass by, lost in confusion
Some scream in your ear, so loud

O Lord, You know our very weakness
You know how we hate to sin
But sometimes the promise of gaiety
Burdens greatly and has its win

Please grasp our hands much tighter
Draw us away when temptation’s near
And may the look contained in Your eyes
Restrain us so we have nothing to fear
