Hi, I’m a friend
Your ear, I’m asking you to lend
I want for you what I have now
I hope that soon you’ll know how
I’m not the person I used to be
I used to feel so empty
But someone came into my life
And is freeing me from strife
I want you to know that He is waiting
You, He isn’t hating
He knows what you have done
He wants you to have a life full of fun
Fun times await you, but it still won’t be easy
It won’t always be breezy
But He will be by your side
In Jesus, you can always confide

Hey there, I know you out there
You may not be saying a prayer
You may be in the pit so deep
In depression’s sleep
Sleep is covering you, I’m sure
I have something to tell you so it won’t endure
Someone’s here to pull you out of that mire and muck
He won’t ever let you get stuck
He can be your best friend
On Him you can depend
He died so you don’t have to
For this gift, there’s nothing you can do
Do draw close to Him, for he won’t hurt you
He will make all things new
He died a long time ago to save you
No matter what you’ve done, He forgives you

The sun shines, and so does the Son
The Son of God who ended what had long ago had begun
He killed Sin; he stomped it on its head
Head flattened, Satan knows he’s defeated
Defeated he is thanks to Jesus Christ
He paid the ultimate price
He hung there on the cross like a criminal for all to see
He died to make things right for you and me

We are walking, he and I
We will walk by your garden, by and by
What will you grow there?
Hopefully something nice is my prayer
Prayer is the furtilizer, the Word is the water
I know some people think it’s fodder
But the blooms that burst forth, are the prettiest I’ve seen
Born from the blood that washes me pristine
Pristine is the One who walks by my side
It’s in Him who I can confide
He tells me what I should and shouldn’t do
And He can do the same for you

Don’t know how I feel.
Don’t know what I want.
Don’t know what I’m really like
Don’t know what I want to be.
Don’t know if I even care.
Don’t know what I want to do today.
Don’t know if I want to get up today.
Don’t know what I’m to do.
Don’t know what I’m supposed to do.
Don’t know who I am.
Who am I?
I am a child of God, so why am I like this?
This isn’t like me, so why don’t I cling to Him?
Him, He is good, kind, gentle, and He cares about me.
Me? What do I do? I am in a funk. I must go with what I know.
I know how I feel. I feel better.
I know what I want. To be closer to God.
I know a little of I’m really like. I’m ok.
I know what I want to be. I want to be a better steward.
I know that I do care. I must.
I know what I want to do today. I want to write for God.
I know I want to get up today. The Lord wouldn’t want me to sleep it away.
I know what I’m to do. I have to keep living.
I know what I’m supposed to do. Love
I KNOW who I am. I’m a CHILD OF GOD!!!

I will stand with my Lord Jesus
And not create a fuss
I will fight the good fight the best I know how
I will not let my spirit go fallow
Fallow spirits mean a harden heart
Then my Lord and I must depart
He must step away
Because I have sinned and strayed
Strayed from Him, just like the rest of the world
Rolling up my flag, not having it unfurled
Hiding in my darkness, not wanting to come out
All I want to do is fume and pout
Pouting isn’t the way to go
I remember that as I step through Grace’s window
Into the arms of my loving Lord
Who is someone I cannot ignore

I look up to the heavens above
I see a cloud shaped like a dove
I think about the time when the dove descended down
To tell us all that God smiled, not frowned
I look around to see a trickling stream.
I think about Joseph’s dream
The dream which told Your earthly father to marry Your mother
And that he shouldn’t seek another
I’m thankful that it’s you who has it all in control
You had it all planned when it was so cold
You had it all planned from beginning to end
Heaven’s gates were opened
Opened wide they were that night
The shepherds were paralyzed with fright
I smile and thank you Jesus, my Lord
With you showing me these things, I’ll never be bored!

A wind is blowing about our little house
Inside and out because of a little mouse
The chaos born of depression
The things brought in became an obsession
Obsession nearly buried me with a mess
Chaos took away our little nest
It buried us in confusion and pain
We continued in the insanity again and again
Again we went round and around
Just like mice on the wheel, not on the ground
Until you said “Let my children go!”
And the chaos ceased to blow
Blow, Holy Spirit, blow
Blow through our lives, and show us what you know
Clean out our lives, like our house you gave our family
Make this a better home for you, my husband and me

I lift my eyes to the sky
Praising the Lord Most High
He is everywhere, whether we know it or not
His love can’t be sold or bought
Bought were our souls with His own blood, pure
Yet He has risen; His love still endures
He has given His unfailing grace
All we have to do is seek His face
Face Him, no, we don’t want to
We think there’s something we should do
To earn His favour and unfailing love
It’s always here, it’s given freely from above

I am tired
Not very inspired
I feel the urge to write
It’s usually my delight.
I sit here in my chair
Thinking that I hadn’t a prayer
Then a Spark comes into my mind
My first word, I find
My emotions set me affire
To write is my desire
I write about Him and His work
His love for us is His only perk
He turned a bad day downside up
As He filled my cup
I lift up my hands in praise
In the son’s miraculous rays
