He’s everywhere you just have to look

So this morning I’m in the shower this morning and I look to my left out the frosted window. Now you can’t see anything unless it’s right up against the window and even then it’s hard to make out. But this morning there it was clear as day what I could only assume was a twig has lodged it self between the bottom and top pane.

So what?

Well this twig was shaped like a cross.

Just a twig that happened to look like a cross?

You could believe that but I choose to believe that a twig in the shape of a cross whose image in a frosted window came through as clear as day was the Lord saying Carl as you start the week know that I got you everything going to be OK.

May you all have a blessed week!

He’s all over me and He’s keeping me alive

Have you ever walked by a mirror looked into it saw your reflection and thought about just how lucky you are at that moment to be able to do just that.

I have because after a long journey. I realize the Lord is in my heart and in my mind.  I realize that nothing I have accomplished or nothing I will accomplish is done without Him and I realize nothing is impossible with him.

So take a minute today to recognize Him, to praise Him and to thank Him. Do this because you opened your eyes this morning to enjoy yet another day on this beautiful blue ball He has given us. Do this because you know that in good times and bad as the song goes. He’s all over us and He’s keeping us alive!

He Woke Me

Woke up today to another Monday and could hear the rain as it fell upon my window sill. My first thought was ugh!! Monday and to make things worst rain.  Than I thought about it and realized I woke this morning! 

Yes I woke! Thanks to the grace of God my eyes opened to a new day.  

The rain? Well the rain I realized was symbolic of the Lord raining down his blessings upon me. Keeping me one of his children safe as I begin another week!  

Yes the Lord has allowed me to experience a new day and he woke me and for that I am truly blessed. 

Have a blessed week everyone!

Nothing Compares to U Lord

It’s been 12 months and three days

Since I found my way back to U

I used to sin every night and party all day

Without you I could travel the less righteous road

I could care only about myself

I could worship the dollar while in a fancy suit

But nothing

I said

Nothing can save my spirit

Nothing can save my soul,

Nothing can save my heart

Nothing could give me the happiness you could

Cause nothing compares

Nothing compares to U

I was so lost without you in my life

Like a bird without a song

Nothing could stop the tears from falling

Tell me Lord where did I go wrong

I could grab for every dollar I see

I could have every comfort money could buy

But they’d never give me the happiness of knowing U

I went to the doctor guess what he told me

Guess what he told me

He said boy even with all the money in the world there’s nothing we can do for you

but he’s a fool

Cause there’s nothing U can’t do

Cause nothing compares to U

You saved me

You breathed life back into me

I know that following you won’t always easy

I must be willing to sacrifice

I must be willing to forgive

I must be willing to embrace my enemies

I must be willing to serve the poor

I know it will be hard because I know I’m flawed

I know I am not perfect

Yet you still love me

So I’m going to give it my best

‘Cause nothing compares to the love you rain down on me

Cause nothing compares to the blessings you bestow upon me

Cause nothing compares

Nothing compare to U Lord

You stepped into my life And I’m oh, so happy

With a nod to Melba Moore’s classic you stepped into my life

You stepped into my life
And I’m oh, so happy
You stepped into my life
And I’m oh, so happy
Stepped into my life
Steeped into my life

Before you came my way
I had so much worry
Always thought it would never work out
Thought I was alone
That I wasn’t worthy
But then you came to me
Told me I was your child
And you would always love me
All I had to do is have my heart believe
If I wanted to come home I just need to confess
And I’ll be forgiven of any sin

You stepped into my life
And I’m oh, so happy

Others look at me and wonder what has happened
You gave me so much more than I deserved
Now I kneel before you and praise you every day
Cause I understand that you’re always watching and protecting me
And I believe that You will work out all my problems
Because I know with You all things are possible

You stepped into my life
And I’m oh, so happy

You can tell everybody – He’s the one

Well you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
He’s the one, He’s the one , He’s the one
Yes He is, Yes He is, Yes He is.

I believe in Him no matter what life may bring me
Praised him to all who hear my voice
Had my faith tested but never did I fold.

Well it ain’t that hard when you believe
Somewhere I heard that life is a test
I been through the worst but I still give my best
God stands with me through the storms
Then he works it out so I know I’m blessed.

Stand up now and face the sky
Don’t let your troubles consume you
It’s time to do what must be done, come home and praise him
For He is the King of all the earth; Sing praises with a skillful psalm.

Well you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
He’s the one, He’s the one , He’s the one
Yes He is, Yes He is, Yes He is.

He’s got all the answers to your questions
He has established His throne in the heavens, And His sovereignty rules over all.
If we confession our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
For He is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know His name name trust in Him, for He has never forsaken those who seek Him.

He’s the one
Go ahead and tell everybody what I’m saying y’all
He’s the one, He’s the one , He’s the one
Yes He is, Yes He is, Yes He is

6:00 a.m. and I know he will work it out

The alarm goes off at 6:00 a.m. and as I open my eyes blessed to have another day on this earth I immediately smile armed with the knowledge that without Him I wouldn’t be alive.  I rub the remnants of sleep out of and raise my eyes to praise him for I understand I may not always be worthy but know that I am his child and He still loves me. Today like all days Satan will lurk in the shadows attempting to cast doubt on my faith through pain and angst. This I do not worry about because I understand that the Lord is the greater force. So I simply turn my troubles over to Him confident He will work them out.  Because I know it is true that to be without is not His will and there is a cattle on a thousand hill and they are all mine to claim in his holy name.  So I praise Him for what he has given me and for what he will give me as I open my soul to the blessing He will rain down on me.
