Becky’s Song: He’s Always Near

Verse 1:

God hears my prayers,

And calms my fears.

Yes, God hears my prayers;

He’s always near.

God comforts me,

And wipes away my tears.

Yes, God comforts me;

He’s always near.

Chorus:

He’s near me in the sunshine;

He’s still there in the moonlight.

And even when there’s no light,

God’s always near.

Verse 2:

God provides for my needs

and keeps watch over me.

Yes, God provides for my needs;

He’s always near.

God shows the way

And leads me home,

Yes, God shows the way;

He’s always near.

Chorus

Verse 3:

Because he loves me so,

He’ll never let me go.

Yes, because he loves me so;

He’s always near.

I’ll praise his name,

And sing with all my heart.

 Yes, I’ll praise his name;

He’s always near

Chorus

Somewhere in this Day

Somewhere in this day is an unhurried

moment in which to sit beneath God’s

unwavering gaze;

and be showered by his love with

droplets of his mercy and never-ending

grace.

Somewhere in this day, God sits

patently and waits for me to

draw closer to his gracious throne;

where I can sit in quiet fellowship

with him alone in a restful, silent place.

Somewhere in this day as I

meander and journey along,

I will hear him in the quiet birdsong

underneath the wintry sunshine’s

glowing display.

I then realize he is gently reminding me

that he is much nearer than I think.

And he will reveal himself again

somewhere in this day.

 

In a Whisper of Faith

In a whisper of faith, God calms the raging storms.

In a whisper of faith, God diffuses the troubles of life;

In a whisper of faith, God instills peace amidst the strife.

In a whisper…

In a whisper of faith, God shields me from the searing heat.

In a whisper of faith, God is in the wind sifting through the trees;

In a whisper of faith, God surrounds me in a cool, gentle breeze.

In a whisper…

In a whisper of faith, God protects me from the frigid, wintry cold.

In a whisper of faith, God wipes away my tears in the deep, dark night;

In a whisper of faith, God watches over me until the dawn of morning light.

In a whisper…

When LOVE RAINS

Lingering raindrops in the grayish sky

Overcast with a sheet of clouds drifting by.

Venturing out on a dark and dreary day

Ever wishing for the clouds to dissipate.

Remembering just then that God has a plan

As Jesus, his only Son, he did send.

Inflicted and laden with all my wickedness;

Not hesitating, he suffered and died for my sinfulness.

So like the rain covering the grass, he came to hold me steadfast.

Therefore as the droplets fall and cling to the land,

He quietly descends and  takes my hand.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentines

THANKFUL HEART

Thinking continually of God and his grace;

Holding on to him in a warm embrace.

Attitude and heart set on joy and gladness

Never forgetting from whom we are blessed.

Kindness and love to share

For neighbors, friends, and family everywhere.

Unswerving in faith and hope in the Lord;

Letting him guide in life, prayer, and in his Word.

Helping other and never stop caring;

Eternal life with him always sharing.

Adoration and praise never ending;

Remembering always Jesus is my friend.

Trusting and believing forever in him, Amen!

Becky’s Song: Being Thankful in January

(Tune: Deck the Halls):

January is too cold fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

And I can tell I’m getting old fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Oh this weather and the temperatures, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

I cannot so easily endeavor, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

 

Tis the season to hibernate, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Stay inside until Spring’s first day, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Oh but then I might miss some fun, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

And not see the bright rainbow sun, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

 

Also no sledding or skiing, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Nor walking beneath snow glistened trees, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Nor making angels in the snow, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

All because outside I won’t go, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

 

So, I guess I’ll venture outside, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Now that the bright sun did arise, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

And continue on life’s journey, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

And try to see this new day’s blessings, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

 

It is still the time to be thankful, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Knowing that God is faithful, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

He has promised to never leave me, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

And lovingly he’s always providing, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

 

So now as I step into the cold, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Following a snow swept road, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

I will remember that Jesus is with me, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Sheltering me in his love and peace, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
