STARTING OVER

 

I feel the tension mounting,
 every second of every day.
The stress overwhelms me,
and nothing goes my way.
I lost my favorite job,
and my options are very few.
I lost my best friend,
what am I going to do?
Starting over was never easy, 
it never was meant to be.
It's always a time of learning,
and not a time of harmony.
My bills keep piling,
and all my cupboards are bare.
I reached out to others,
but no one really cares.
I lost another car,
and all my possessions too.
Here I am starting over,
at the age of sixty-two
Starting over was never easy,
it never was meant to be.
It's always a time of learning,
and not a time of harmony.
So I fix my eyes on Jesus,
I know he's always near.
He can take away my sorrows,
and cast away my fears.
I place my hope in Jesus,
even when life looks grim.
He promised to help me,
I know I can trust him.

I WILL REMEMBER YOU

 

So many days have come and gone.
But the memories of you is still strong.
From the first day when we just met.
To the last day I will never forget.
You're the most caring person I ever knew.
I will remember you.
I look through the photographs and see.
How wonderful it use to be.
All the things we use to do.
All the places we went to.
Our love for each other grew.
I will remember you.
Day and night I see your face.
Moments of love you can't erase.
We became best friends.
Our love seem to have no end.
Until God called you home. 
I will remember you.

OUR AWESOME GOD

 

God filled the darkness with a starry light.
He created the stars to glow at night.
He created the sun and the day had begun.
He created the earth to orbit the sun.
How did God create this beautiful sight?

It was almighty God who created the land.
He filled it with trees, flowers and sand.
He filled the earth with plenty of water.
And all the fish he created right after.
How did God create this beautiful sight?

It was almighty God who created the sky.
He filled it with all kinds of birds to fly.
He created all the animals one by one.
God saw it was good, but he wasn't done.
Till God said let us make ourselves a man.
He created all of us according to his plan.
How did God create this beautiful sight?

When almighty God spoke, this all came to be.
By his own words, he created this beauty.
So take a moment and look around and see.
OUR AWESOME GOD created it for you and me.

GOD'S OWN WORDS

 

I stand on the promises of your spoken word.
Etched in my mind are the bible verses I've heard.
I know in my heart that you hear my prayer.
I believe you love me and you'll always be there.
I study the very words that you promised to do.
I know and believe that your words is always true.
So I can read the bible in times of uncertainty.
Because the author is God and he is trustworthy.

PLAY IT FOR CJ

 

All the times you helped me.

All the times you shared.

All the things you did for me.

You showed you really cared.

My times with you I treasure,

more precious than real gold.

Those times we prayed together,

those memories I'll always hold.

My times with you were splendid,

I thank God every day.

Those memories keep me going,

they'll never fade away.

My times with you were special,

we were happy as can be.

Those times we ate together,

and also watched TV.

My times with you have ended,

it's so hard to say goodbye.

Till we meet again in heaven,

those memories will never die.

WE BELIEVE

 

There is hope, there is joy,
there's a reason to live.
There is love, there is peace,
that only he can give.
We have faith, we proclaim,
that Jesus is the one.
We are glad, we rejoice,
for the things he has done.
He's the best, he's the greatest,
he's the only one we need.
He is Jesus, he is Lord,
that's what we believe.
We will serve, we will worship,
we will thank the Lord every day.
We will sing, we will shout,
we will praise his holy name.
We will reach, we will teach,
we will preach the word of God.
That's our goal, that's our life,
that's the best thing we got.

 CJ


My heart aches every time I see.

The empty chair near the TV.

My best friend suddenly passed away.

Part of me died and I'm left astray.

I miss CJ, she was my best friend.

We had great times till the end.

I know God will call me home too.

Till we meet again, CJ, I LOVE YOU!

THE INNER LIGHT

 

There are four candles burning,

with a message for you to see.

You can learn the truth,

what life was meant to be.

The first candle proclaimed,

I am JOY that you need today.

But no one cares to listen,

so my flame has gone away.

The second candle was next,

I am PEACE to bring you harmony.

But they chose to hate instead,

so my flame has gone out of me.

The third candle said I am LOVE,

for those who are torn apart.

But they chose to ignore me,

I can no longer warm the heart.

I stood there in disbelief,

and wonder what this is about.

I didn't understand,

why the three flames would go out.

The fourth candle said there's time,

while my candle has some light.

I am HOPE that still flickers,

you can use me tonight.

So I took the candle of HOPE,

to light the other three.

The message was clear,

there's still hope inside of me.

When I lit each candle,

of JOY, PEACE, and LOVE.

I can get all three,

when I pray to GOD above.

Someone Who Cares

There is someone who knows you,
and someone who cares.
That someone is Jesus,
who is always there.
He loves you so much,
it's beyond compare.
So call on him today,
with a simple prayer.
There is someone you can trust,
and someone who understands.
That someone is Jesus,
who offers you a hand.
He promised he will help,
and he promised he would stay.
All you have to do,
is put your faith in him today.
There is someone you should seek,
and someone you will love.

MY FINAL PRAYER

 

Sweet Jesus come to me and call me to rise.
Raise me from the grave and open my eyes.
Sweet Jesus come to me and call me to your side.
And take me up to your land of paradise.
I was the one who sinned and turned away from you.
You showed your amazing grace and forgave me too.
I bowed my head and said my life is in your hands.
You sent your Holy Spirit and took command.
You cleansed my soul, heart and mind.
Healed my broken heart and put my past behind.
 I sing and praise to you with my joyful noise.
And I wait for the day when I hear your voice.
Sweet Jesus come to me and call me to rise.
Raise me from the grave and open my eyes.
Sweet Jesus come to me and call me to your side.
And take me up to your land of paradise.

PLEASE HELP ME


        Sometimes I want to pray,

        not knowing what to say.

        Except the tears I want to cry,

        and for you to be at my side.

        Sometimes I want to pray,

        with the words I want to say.

        The moment I want to see,

        When you are there to hold me.

        Sometimes I want to pray,

        with the words I need to say.

        For you to answer my plea.

        The words of PLEASE HELP ME!




Saturday, September 5, 2020

This Is Your Story

 

              This is your story,

 what have you done?

Have you shown kindness,

 do you love everyone?

This is your moment,

 what will you do?

What will you say,

 when someone comes to you?

The people you meet,

 what emotion do you create?

Consider your choices,

 it's love or it's hate,

We must heed God's word,

 because it's all true.

If you love God, 

you'll obey his word too.

This is your story,

 what will you do?

When someone you know,

 is angry at you.

This is your moment,

 the impact you can make.

From your own words, 

and the action you take.

Your emotions buildup,

 what thoughts do you create?

Consider your choices,

 it's love or it's hate.

We must heed God's word,

 because it's all true.

If you love God,

 you'll obey his word too.

This is your story,

 how will it end?

You'll be judged,

 on what you did back then.

In Memory of CJ


When God gave us CJ,
for a relative and a friend.
Those ties are never broken,
even when we saw her life end.
We miss her precious smile,
and her love and care.
We never forget those times,
and wish she was still there.
She may have passed,
but the memories we can hold.
On our dear relative and friend,
who had a heart of gold.
Our hearts may be broken,
and the tears we may shed.
But we have this time,
to recall the words she said.
She may have left us,
but her life was not in vain.
We can always honor her,
and carry on in her name.
We come to bear tribute,
to a relative and a friend.
We know she's with God,
and we'll see her again.


Sunday, August 23, 2020

Memory of CJ

You gave a cheer and a smile,
to one whose heart was sad.
You were kind and generous,
which made me happy and glad.
You showed your friendliness,
in every single way you knew.
You touched my lonely heart,
that even my smile came through.
You greeted me every day,
with your sweet and loving care.
You showed your thoughtfulness,
with food you were willing to share.
You did so many wonderful things,
to brighten my day.
I am thankful and grateful to God,
for sending you this way.

Long Road Ahead

God has chosen this time,
which you patiently waited for so long.
To serve him in a way,
where his name is praised in every song.
Now you look ahead,
to the road that God is leading you.
A road in life,
that is reached by only so few.
So in times of trouble,
remember what God has done for you.
God will always help,
in everything you say and do.
So every burden that comes,
take the time to pray.
God's Holy Spirit will help,
and lead the way.
So when you pray each day,
 these words you should always say.
Dear Lord, I ask you,
to please help me today.

GIVE ME JESUS

Just give me Jesus, who can save my soul.
He can change my life and make it whole.
Send your Holy Spirit to guide me today.
And cleanse my soul and lead the way.
Lend me the bible, so I can finally learn.
All about my Savior, before he return.
Teach me to pray, on what I should say.
So I can ask Jesus to help me today.
Show me a church, where I can find.
So I can praise the Lord, all the time.
Teach me a song, so I can always sing.
To praise his name and honor the King.
Give me the wisdom that I can share.
The real good news that Jesus does care.
Show me the way, which road to take.
For I got a promise, I want to make.
To give the good news to everyone I see.
With the message, JESUS is all we need.

Face the world with the Lord,
with his love and all his care.
You know that he promised,
he will always be there.
Face the world with the Lord,
with the knowledge he will lead.
You know that he hears your prayers,
and provides what you need.
Face the world with the Lord,
with the life he gave.
You know that he died for you,
so you can be saved.
Face the world with the Lord,
with his word that no one can break.
You can believe in his promise,
that he will never forsake.

Hidden Tragedy

Just never knew the feelings you had inside.
Until they told me the reason why you died.
Lord only knew all the tears you cried.
I just wish you could have confide.
All those feelings you were trying to hide.
Remember there is life beyond the pain.
Sad to say these words are all in vain.
At times life is cruel, I don't know why?
I can only say, it's no reason to die.
Knowing now what you went through back then.
I wish I could help you my friend.
Now I pray for you till the end.

Keep The Faith


Whenever you are down,
and feeling really sad.
Even when you're ill,
and your day is going bad.
Anytime you worry,
 or have some fear.
Maybe you feel alone,
 and long for someone near.
Remember that GOD is there beside you.
He's always there to help you through.
That's a promise, he will never forsake.
Just remember to KEEP THE FAITH!
Whenever there is trouble,
or any type of pain.
Even when you struggle,
and your effort seems in vain.
Anytime there is a burden,
or even a broken heart.
Maybe there is some grief,
and you're torn apart.
Remember that GOD is there beside you.
He's always there to help you through.
That's a promise, he will never forsake.
Just remember to KEEP THE FAITH!
There may come a time,
when something goes wrong.
It seems to linger on,
and your life seems gone.
Whenever that happens,
and you're wondering what to do?
You got to believe in GOD,
and he'll help you too.
Remember that GOD is there beside you.
He's always there to help you through.
That's a promise he will never forsake.
Just remember to KEEP THE FAITH!

BORN AGAIN

I saw the light that broke the darkness of my day.
The light that came from God who saved my life today.
I live the life that he has given to me for free.
The gift of life to show the love he has for me.
I pray to God for all the strength I need today.
The strength to love and care in God's loving way.
Now I look ahead and put my past behind.
And love God with all my heart, soul and mind.
I give my life to my almighty Father above.
And praise him for all his help and love.
