Marvelous Monday

More Than a Song

Streams of mercy overflow,
Jesus loves me this I know.
What a tremendous thought
By His blood I have been bought.

More than a children’s song,
Everyone loves to sing along.
With a childlike faith in thee
My heart sings Jesus loves me.

The words are more than a phrase.
They will guide me all my days.
Jesus loves me this I know
All my love to Him I owe.

Treasured Tuesdays

Not Just Today, But Always

My heart I give to you,
Not just for a moment, but always.

It’s not just a casual relationship
I want with you
I want it to be forever and always.

I will treasure each moment of our
Time that we have together
Not just today, but tomorrow and always.

You will be with me on rainy days
You will be my sunshine
Not just today, but always

We will go on long walks together,
Have many treasured conversations,
Not just today, but always!

When my heart aches,
I know yours does, too.
You cry with me,
Not just today, but always.

Sometimes I don’t treat you very well
I turn away from you
But you’re still there waiting
Not just today, but always.

You love me more than I’ll ever know
Someday We’ll be together in heaven
Not just for one day or two, but always!

Songfilled Sundays

My Father’s Embrace

Tears trickled slowly down my face.
I needed my Father’s loving embrace.
The pain was difficult to bear
So I ran quickly to Him in prayer.

He alone has the power to heal
It begins as before Him I kneel.
He gently wipes away each tear,
Reminds me that He is always near.

God’s own Son died for my sake
So He understands my heart ache.
He watched His Son die on the cross.
He will help me bear my own loss.

I will be thankful as my faith grows
For all the love and hope He bestows.
His mercy is extended o’er and o’er.
One day I’ll see Him at heaven’s door

Who do I Worship

What question must I ask myself today?
Am I doing everything my own way?
Do I always have to be in control?
I need Almighty God to make me whole.

Who do I worship and give my praise?
What do I think about during my days?
Jesus you are the Redeemer of my soul?
When I need comfort you will console.

Father, you are the one true God.
You love me even though I am flawed.
No other God will I love and serve.
All glory and honor you deserve.

I will bow down before your throne.
I want to be yours and yours alone.
May my actions bring glory to your name.
Throughout my life your love I’ll proclaim.

In the Potter's Hands

In the potter’s hands I am clay,
Lovingly molded day by day.
The Master Potter has a plan for me
In the future I’ll be able to see.

Why is He shaping me like this?
I don’t want pain, just bliss.
Why must my heart ache?
I feel as if it’s about to break.

Even though I continue to wrestle,
The Potter is making me a stronger vessel.
I often argue and complain too much
And don’t always yield to His touch.

I must be shaped on the potter’s wheel
While all the cracks He will heal.
He will mold and fashion me into
an image of Jesus the world can see.

I Needed a Savior

I saw myself as a sin sick soul,
But how would I ever be whole.
Then I heard of a Savior who died
Forgiveness and grace to provide.

Father thank you for this saving grace,
For the Redeemer who took my place.
Help me always trust and obey,
Walk with you each and every day.

May I always have an attitude
Of thankfulness and gratitude
For this marvelous gift of love
Given by the Mighty God above.
