As it states in the scriptures, "God is enthroned in the praises of His people". When we praise God in spirit and in truth, we will know the presence of Him because He will be there. Now that's what I call AWESOME!!
INHABIT MY PRAISE
There are many different beliefs with many different opinions about who Jesus was. Some say an archangel, a prophet, a faith healer and some say He was just a man. I stand firm in my belief that the bible is the inspired word of God and that Jesus is the second person in the Trinity, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit. I believe He is the only Son of God who came to earth as "fully God", yet "fully man" and served as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men. I believe that He is our redeemer who made a way for us to get to heaven through His shed blood. But the questions is, what do you say...
WHAT DO YOU SAY
The map is laid out and the path is clear, all we have to do is stay on it; destination: heaven. Jesus clearly showed us the way we are to live in order to have peace and joy, and also to be guaranteed an eternal home in heaven. The gift is free, He already paid the price by taking all our sins on Himself and nailing them to the cross of calvary. Accept His gift today and start "Walking in the Way"!!
WALKING IN THE WAY
STAND UP AND STAND
Whatever your situation may be, remember that God is our rock and our solid ground. Stand on The Rock and you will not be moved; and when you've done all you can do... stand up and stand.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
I realize that without God I would be a wandering soul depending on the temporary pleasures of this world to satisfy my desires. Don't get me wrong, God has provided me with many blessings and I appreciated them all; good food, health, a home, etc. But I also realize that these are all temporary and one day they will all disappear. We are eternal beings created by God, for God, because He is a God of love and wants us to love and worship Him. It is of our own free will that we chose who or what we will worship, and God will not force His will upon us, it is for us to chose. If we chose Him, our reward is eternal life with Him; if not, well, it's in a place not so pleasant. Actually it will be a living hell that won't end, and eternity is a long time. I pray that you chose God; He is waiting on you, please hear His voice calling and answer yes Lord.
HERE I AM
I know that it is only by the Spirit of God that I can have the strength to do His will and live according to His Word. I'm far from perfect, and I don't care to admit how many times a day I stumble, but He is always there to lift me back up and set me on the right track again. He would love to fill you with His Spirit, just ask Him and see!
FALL ON ME
Welcome To Redemption
It was around the 4th of July when I was inspired to write this song. With all the politicians, special rights groups, atheists, etc. trying to silence anything to do with God in this country, I wanted to express my unashamed willingness to speak out about my love for God and my belief in Him. I for one, am not ashamed of His name and I will shout it from the roof tops if I want to; and Mr. Obama or anybody else will not stop me.
SMALL TOWN USA
Welcome To Redemption
Doing Just Fine
I'm walking my own walk and fighting my own individual battles as I do my best to follow Jesus. Please don't judge me by what you may see, you don't know where I've been or what I'm going through at this time in my life.
Matthew 7:1-3 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
Be careful! .
Now I'm living in Redemption and settling down, on a street called Forgiveness, in a quiet little town. Thank God for the peace that I have found, in this place called Redemption, my new home town! Once you understand the forgiveness that is yours through the redemptive blood of Christ that was shed for you, you will never be the same. It's kind of like moving to a new town and starting your life all over again, with a fresh, clean slate. That's the message I tried to convey through this song.
Having some fun writing some country style music about trusting God no matter what the situation might be. A fun little tune about someone that is way down on their luck, but then they remember that no matter what, Jesus is always there with them and everything is going to be all right.
Worn Out Jeans
I used to think it was all about "raising hell", but now I know it's all about "raising praise"!! One of these days when we see our risen Saviour face to face, we're going to be raising some praise like never before! We'll be in the company of all the prophets, angels, and all those who went before us. Wow, now that's going to be a concert brother!!!
Raise Some Praise
A song about a very special little girl who I hold very dear to my heart. When we moved into our home, the neighbor boy across the street was about 5 years old. We have watched him grow into a man and were there when his mother and dad passed on. He is now a father to a wonderful little girl and boy and still lives across the street. We were never able to have children, so therefore, no grandchildren; but his children have become our grandchildren and a very, very sweet blessing from God.
