I’m scared to go out…

Because I don’t want to get it
Because that would mean I help spread it
But there’s no one else who is able to do it
And supplies need to be replenished.
So I wear the mask and say a prayer
That I may not be included in the statistics
And that this sickness, never touches my family.

Fold

These are my hands,
They will grow old,
They won’t forever look grand,
But they will never cease to fold…
..in prayer

These are my knees,
They will buckle someday,
Yet they will not cease,
To kneel before you everyday

These are my feet,
They won’t always be strong,
But it will perform a feat,
Walking away from all that’s wrong

This is me,
A sinner
As sinners can be
But I will glorify Your name, always
As You are the reason why I am a winner

A Sinner’s Plea

Is God still showing me love
As He looks down from above?
He silently  sheds a tear
as He longs to be near.
To be His child is my true  calling,
So why am I continually falling?
The Sinner’s eternally  cry,
For their broken wings just cannot fly.
Now I long to  change…that’s what I say,
But why is it that I won’t pray?
What is it  going to take
To finally make me break?
Where is that longing  fire
That showed my true hearts desire?
What will be the final cost
If  I forever am lost?
I still am crying out to be free,
But is this my hearts  true plea?
I have it all right in front of me,
Still my covered eyes  cannot see.

Conversation With God

Every night before I sleep
I look up to the Heavens and try not to  weep.
For my heart is full
with the Lords will,
My strength, my health & pockets full.
He has blessed me every day
Since birth till  today.
Thank you Lord
cause now I can afford,
to testify and praise  you
Precious, love and True-
Thank you.

When The Earth Shook

The Earth shook me

Almost threw me aside

My life did not flash before my eyes

But it was then that I realized I may not make it.

However, the Lord did plan it that way

He made me realize my existence

and that I need to keep my faith

I am not afraid for I know You are with me

You had to shake the Earth for me to take notice

But I hear you

Loud and clear

 

 

***Please pray for the people in Bohol, Philippines, they badly need it. We here in Cebu are under a state of calamity but those in Bohol have been affected the most.  Thanks in advance for all your prayers.

A Son’s Pain

Until the end of the day, I sit and pray
Looking towards the heaven, looking  toward that day.
The day when life will unfold it’s plan
To a needy young  man trying to make it through this land.
Had dreams of wealth, happiness  galore
But only received nightmares, Lord I can’t take any more.
Please  lead me to that path that You have set for me
My patience is running short.  Where do you want me to be?
I know I am one of your angels, one without the  wings
I try to be kind and peaceful, bring to people wonderful things.
But  I feel more hurt that happiness, tears continue to flow
I see so much more  with my life, but things are happening slow.
So I ask you, Father, please  show me your full grace
Because I am tired of hiding my smile underneath the  pain on this face

 

-James Toles

You Take Me There

As I search for your Saving grace,
I know one day I’ll see your face.
Waiting is the hardest thing for me,
I know with you I will be so  free.
You take me up and lay me back down,
I know with you I am and will  be found.
I seek you each day and seek your name,
I am nothing without you or your Fame.
Waking with you, you give me power,
To make it another day and another hour.
Learning your word is oh so smart,
I love you Lord with  all my heart.
You gave up for me all your life,
We could not stop all the  strife.
Everyday I will always say,
I long to return to you one  day.
Love me Lord and keep me strong,
Without you I can never get  alone.
So hear my prayers as bring me peace,
My sins Oh Lord will slowly  cease.
My heart is heavy and I am weak,
Your love is strong as you speak.
Keep me safe at comforts arms,
Give me grace without any  harm.
Give me eternity and take me home,
That day I will never be alone.

No Time To Pray (I knelt to pray)

I knelt to pray, but not for long,

I had too much to do.

I had to hurry and get to work

For bills would soon be due.

So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,

And jumped up off my knees.

My Christian duty was now done

My soul could rest at ease …

All day long I had no time

To spread a word of cheer,

No time to speak of Christ to friends,

They’d laugh at me I’d fear.

“No time, no time too much to do,”

That was my constant cry.

No time to give to souls in need

But at last the time, the time to die.

I went before the Lord, I came,

I stood with downcast eyes.

For in His hands God held a book –

It was the Book of Life!

God looked into His book and said

“Your name I cannot find. I once was going to write it down…

But never found the time”

A Prayer

Lord give me strength to face what needs to be done today

Show me the light and path that I may do the things needed

to be done in the way that will not lead me astray or hurt others

Clear my mind of any worries or doubts

and help me overcome the hurdles set up

 

Lord help me listen so I may learn and help me understand

so I may take criticisms well

Give me patience and determination as I go about my work

and as I mingle with other people

Help me go through this day as I look forward

to the following day
