I'm Waiting

I'm Waiting
I'm Waiting on The Lord

I’m waiting…
For a word from you. Just a hint will do, because...
    I'm waiting.
There is no hurry, no worries, no rush, because...
    I'm waiting.
When you're ready, you will let me know, because..
    You know I'm waiting.

You said, “Wait...”, and so I do.
You said, “I would run and not get weary...
    I'm not weary Lord.
If I ask, will You not answer me?
    I know You will!
So You see, that's why...
    I'm waiting.

Who are they that wait?
Those who need not ask the question..
    “How long Lord, How long?
They who wait are patient.
I may not see the road ahead...
    but I know You've made a way,
    when there was no way!

That is why...
    I'm waiting.

It may be an unpaved road, but it's my road...
    bulldozed by Your word.
It may be a steep climb, but I have the faith...
    to ascend this height!

It may be the road less traveled by others...
    but I know it leads to You.
I may get stuck in the mud some time, but
    I will trust You to guide me through.
That is why...
    I'm waiting.

While some may flee at the first sign of terror,
    I'll stand firm and wait.
When the doctor says, “There is no cure”,
    I'm waiting for Your prognosis.
When the lawyer says, “You have no case”,
    I'll wait for Your vindication.
When the job says, “You've been laid off!”,
    Send me to that ripe harvest field.
When the bank says, “We're seizing your home!”,
    I have a place prepared by You.
You see Lord, I've learned that it's best...
    to wait on You.

Some have asked me:
    “Why do you wait for someone you cannot see?
    I say,
    “Eyes have not seen the goodness of the Lord”.
Others may ask:
    “Why wait for words that are not spoken?
    I say,
    “Ears cannot hear the words,Peace be still’”
Still others ask:
    “Why wait when the table is bare?
    I say,
    “Who will taste and see that the Lord is good?
Others may mock, but I will glory in the Lord!
That is why...
    I'm waiting.

It Was Christ!

It Was Christ!
It Was Christ!

Who was it,
    that heard you crying that night?

Who was it,
    that brought you into the light?

Who was it,
    who gave you clarity of sight?

My friend…
    it was Christ!


Who was it,
    who carried your rugged cross?

Who didn’t forsake you,
    when all seemed lost?

Who was it,
    who willingly paid the cost?

My friend…
    it was Christ!


It was Christ,
    who hung and died for you!

It was Christ,
    who rose on the third day too!

It was Christ,
    who began new life in you.

That I’m able to say,
    “God’s love is true!

Who sees,
    the plight of the single mother?

Who feels,
    the pain of a fallen brother?

Who hears,
    your cries like no other?

My friend…
    it was Christ!


It was Christ,
    who hung and died for you!

It was Christ,
    who rose on the third day too!

It was Christ,
    who began new life in you.

That I’m able to say,
    “God’s love is true!

I'm a Witness!

I'm a Witness
I'm a Witness!

Born in a manger…
    to Mary, a virgin.
Holy Child…
    of God The Father.
Angels rejoice,
    wise men heard them.
Bethlehem…
    is where they found Him.
Some have called it, a fiction story.
The Son of God in all His Glory
But let me tell you this…
    He is Lord and,
    I’m a witness!!!

Jesus stood up in the temple,
Quoting scriptures to the elders.
Who is this they asked each other?
Speaking like the Son of God!
Healing sick,
    raising the dead.
Performing miracles,
    as the...prophets said.
This ain’t just...
    a made-up story.
Of some guy...looking for glory.
Cause I can tell you this…
    He is Christ…
    and I’m a witness!!!

He walked Golgotha’s lonely road,
    carrying the cross...
    of our heavy load.
He hung up on that lonely tree,
    bearing the sins of you and me.
He died, but then He rose again,
    defeating death and with it sin.
You may think...
    it’s a lovely story,
    of Jesus Christ and Heavenly glory.
I’m here to tell you this…
    He is Lord…
    and I’m a witness!!!

Jesus rose...
    from the grave.
He rose from where...
    His body laid.
He did it just...
    like He said.
One day He’ll judge...
    the living and dead.
All who stand before Him will see,
    Christ will reign through eternity.
Then you’ll know…
    this ain’t no story.
When Jesus appears in all His glory.
I’ve got to tell you this…
    that I’m a living witness!!!

Do You Know Him?

Do you know God?
Do you know Him? (Image courtesy of http://mudpreacher.org)

I know He is…
    The Great I AM
Jesus Christ…
    The Righteous Lamb.
Do you know Him?
    Yes I do!
He’ll do for me…
    what He’s done for you!

There was a time…
    I didn’t know Him.
A sin-filled life…
    no spiritual growing.
I crashed and burned…
    on life’s highway.
When all seemed lost…
    I heard God say:

Confess and accept…
    My only son.

Receive new life…
    from The Risen One.

Do you know Him?
    Yes, I do.
He saved my life…
    He’ll save your’s too!

He filled my life with…
    His Holy Spirit.
I walk in grace…
    empowered to live it.
No weapon formed…
    against me will prosper.
Consumed by Christ…
    I’m more than a conqueror!

Do you know Him?
    Yes I do!
Then lift your hands…
    And praise Him too!

God Is

God Is
God Is...(image courtesy of http://eternalloveministry.net)

God is my provider.
He gives to me...
    life, joy and health.
In me is Christ...
    my Lord, the greater wealth.
Almighty Creator...
    of Heaven and Earth.
The crucified Savior...
    is what I'm worth.
Jehovah Jireh...
    the giver of life.
Turned my darkness...
    into His light.

God is my Redeemer.
My shelter...
    in stormy times.
I am His...
    Jesus is mine.
Rose of Sharon…
    Bright Morning Star.
Jesus is Lord...
    that’s who You are.
Lamb of God,
    He’s coming again.
Prince of Peace...
    my Everlasting Friend.

God is my Comforter.
The Almighty King…
    who sits on the throne.
In the midst of my battles…
    I’m never alone.
The Lord is my Shepherd…
    who quenches my thirst.
I love you Lord…
    but you loved me first.
When I am weary…
    and weak with fear.
Your loving arms hold me…
    You wipe away my tears.
