Trust Him With Everything

If you’re gonna trust in the Lord, go all the way…
Trust Him with everything.
If you say you trust Him to look after you,
But keep doubting things you hope for,
Or things you know He expects of you and for you,
How can you say you trust Him?
That would really be more like saying,
“I trust You, Lord, but I’ll take care of the most important things.”
If you do not completely surrender your trust to Him,
Maybe you’re not trusting Him at all.
If you trust God to hear your prayers,
Meet your needs, and fulfill your life,
Then trust Him with what it takes to get it all done.
Give Him your soul, heart, mind, and body.
Give Him everything He has loaned to you.
If you know He’s all knowing and wise to protect,
Why would you doubt Him?
I know fear and uncertainty can be a problem,
But you know for certain that the fear of the Lord
Is the beginning of knowledge.
So if you’re gonna trust in the Lord, go all the way…
Trust Him with everything.

A Pastor’s Love

A pastor’s love for his people.
A shepherd’s heart for his sheep.
He is so protective
With those he’s been given to keep.
A faithful prayer warrior.
A faithful attentive ear.
A servant ready to serve.
A friend who’s always near.
God’s man is always on duty.
He’s always on call.
Never leaving his flock,
Even when they fall.
Interceding for his fold.
Interacting with his people.
Strengthening the strong.
Carrying the feeble.

Faithfully Pursued

For so long You pursued me
and sought to protect my heart.
You tried so earnestly
to keep us from being apart.
Even in those times
when I thought I had flown,
You were so loving and patient
to show me I was never alone.
How grateful I am
all these years later
that I finally heard Your plea
to make my life greater.
Nothing I ever pursued
has ever compared to You.
How thankful I am
that You are faithful and true.
