When I Can’t Do It

As we face life each day, we need strength from above. We need the Lord to guide us, to direct our paths, to show us the way – His way …..

When I JUST can’t seem to do it Lord
I know that You can – in me
I thank You that all the things I lack
In YOU, O Lord, I see

As I journey along this heavenly path
No matter what test I face
It’s not about might, nor even power
But patiently running the race

I look at You and it’s possible
New faith begins to rise!
Then I reflect and wonder why
I looked through earthly eyes

Deep down in me, my heart says, “Yes”
When flesh would rather say, “No”
At times You want me, Lord, to wait
When it seems I’m raring to go

I thank You Lord for love that sees
Beyond this fleshly veil
When it seems I can’t, in You I can
Through love that never fails

Lord, Be My Compass

directory-1495843_960_720

Dear Lord, be my compass as I journey on
My trust is in You Lord, for You’re never wrong
With You in the picture, I know I’ll succeed
With Your hand to guide me, I know You will lead

In the way I should go and the path I should take
Please guide all my steps and each move that I make
Whichever direction You’d have me to go
Please help me to follow ~ help me to know

For You are my Captain and focus of faith
My Alpha and Omega ~ on You Lord I wait
To run on without You, I’m certain to fail
Like a ship on the sea, without a firm sail

Shine on my path ~ each day and each night
Surround me, O Saviour, with heavenly Light
I’m trusting You, Jesus, my joy and my song
O Lord, be my compass as I journey on
