Oh My Wonderful Lord!

When I kneel and close my eyes to pray,
In the morning, the beginning of each new day.
I am a supplicant, thirsty for Thy living water.
Ready to sup nourishment as a loving daughter.
Thy Spirit falls on me as I praise Your name.
With joy my heart sings,; I am never the same..
You send Your word to savour, filling my mind.
Promises You gave us, my God You are so kind!

Names of the needy You always send my way.
And their needs, not always known, but I pray.
You know their needs, and I trust Your way.
My responsibility is to perceive how to pray.
I thank You for the lessons I have learned.
You gave me new life, one that was not earned.
I rise up refreshed ready to face each new day

You gave me new life, one that was not earned.
I think of Calvary where You paid the price.
I will praise You forever, my living Christ.
I never like to miss the times that I pray.
When I read Your word, I do not stray.
It is food for my soul and strengthens me.
So I can become who You want me to be.
Oh, my wonderful Lord!

Tread Softly

Tread softly as you walk through this coming year.
New days mark easily leaving ones direction unclear.
To walk into a future without Christ is a fearful thing,
I would not want to risk His guidance for anything.

Wayward decisions leave marks so hard to erase
Then shame draws you away from His loving face.
‘Tis better to start the New Year as you mean to go on,
Putting God’s word first, and trusting in His Son.

Hand in hand you can then face the coming year.
Come wind or storm face challenges without fear.
It is so secure to know that what e'er you face
Nothing will defeat you with God’s amazing grace!

Ephesians 2:6-9 “And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not of works, so that no one can boast.”   NIV
