Words for the journey

When you are giving, give with open hand
Do not count the cost or proudly stand
For if you are caring and if you are kind
The act of giving will  bless your mind

Whenever you're praying or singing praise
Do not over shout or flaunt your ways
For the God who sees and the God who knows
Will bless the one who humbly glows...

When life is tough and your road too long
Do not fuss or fret or claim its  wrong
For the timing's right and the route is clear
If you'll walk by faith His voice you'll hear..

When night's approaching or the break of dawn
There's still  a song for you to carry on
The melody of hope and that of peace
So do your part and share this sweet release...

In my hands, I do hold

In my hands, I do hold,
All of God's healing, I am told..
Yet, I am hesitant and I am afraid
So all of God's work for me is delayed

The brokenhearted are at my door
Seeking a handout, and something more
But they are waiting, and waiting long
For my spirit to become more strong

In my hands, I do hold,
All of God's healing, I am told..
Yet, I am hesitant and I am afraid
So all of God's work for me is delayed

The troubled spirits and the deranged
Are walking alone,  like souls estranged
But people flee them and people try
To avoid their encounter: oh my, oh my...

In my hands, I do hold,
All of God's healing, I am told..
Yet, I am hesitant and I am afraid
So all of God's work for me is delayed

With all of my vision, I  can see
All of the wounded of humanity
The poor, the orphaned...the undefined
Are some of those, who are now in  line..

In my hands, I do hold,
All of God's healing, I am told..
Yet, I am hesitant and I am afraid
So all of God's work for me is delayed

The sounds, the echoes...of my past
Are in my spirit and on full blast
They seek to stifle and to disrupt
But God's grace keeps saying  "I am enough"

In my hands, I do hold,
All of God's healing, I am told..
Yet, I am hesitant and I am afraid
So all of God's work for me is delayed

These words, these lyrics, of this song
They are also yours...so sing along
Today's the day ..the new start of you
Doing all that you were meant to do...

In my hands, I do hold,
All of God's healing, I am told..
Yet, I am hesitant and I am afraid
So all of God's work for me is delayed

So, here I go....

In the morning let me praise You
With my words allow You to shine through
Touching creatures and touching people
Without a pulpit or even a steeple

So here I go into my morning
Shining Your Light without a warning
To a world so needful and hurting
I am Your ambassador with a hope alerting..

When I'm working, oh let me bring You
To my coworkers and the projects I may do
For You are the Power behind my being
And it is You, the world should be seeing

So here I go into my morning
Shining Your Light without a warning
To a world so needful and hurting
I am Your ambassador with a hope alerting..

When inside company, let me be You
Speaking a hopefulness in all I do
Not with  preachiness ...but pure love
I will encourage others to seek You above...

So here I go into my morning
Shining Your Light without a warning
To a world so needful and hurting
I am Your ambassador with a hope alerting..

What are you doing.....?

What is it, you're pursuing,  with all of your might
Is it selfishness, selflessnes; darkness or light?
The source of your seeking.. the reason for your run:
What is it, that motivates you, to get everything done?

With everything that's happening in the busy-ness of your day
Have you stopped for a moment to consider your way
For what are you doing this ...and for what do you seek
Have you gotten into a routine that won't make you unique..?

The hours and the minutes and the seconds of each day
They are passing and evolving and filling our way
But what of our activities and and what of our stride
Will we lay down each evening and know a healthy pride??

The storms we need

 The rain is creating her own melody
 Of soothing-ness and serenity
 Soaking the earth ..so parched and dry
 And leaving her rainbows..in the sky

 The skies all graying produce their lights
 Of awe inspiring lightning strikes
 They flash, they fizzle, they move so quick
 Heavens own version of the neon stick..

 All glowing and shaking, the skies above
 Thunder with echoes of limitless love
 Ominously rumbling with its frightening sound
 Thunder is helping the earth and the ground

 And after all these storms, so loud and clear
 A sign in the skies is reminding us all here
 That shaking and trembling may take over our land
But we will be okay again: do you understand ?

He drank his life away...

He drank his life away.. yet he had it under control
This is what he said ... when the questions started to roll
A little bit won't hurt you . it helps me to calm down
When they carried him away empty bottles were all around

And he loved to drink his wiskey and he loved his finest wine
Whenever you'd go to visit .. he tempt you all the time
With another type of  liquor:  a margarita or a gin
He had a big variety .. it was killing him deep within

He drank his life away.. yet he had it under control
This is what he said.. when the questions started to roll
A little bit won't hurt you . it helps me to calm down
When they carried him away empty bottles were all around

Soon he'd seemed to struggle with the words he wanted to say
He never could understand it.. what was eating his brain away
But the liquid inside the glasses.. he poured when he got home
Were the demons he'd never acknowledge yet they did freely roam

He drank his life away.. yet he had it under control
This is what he said.. when the questions started to roll
A little bit won't hurt you . it helps me to calm down
When they carried him away empty bottles were all around

It seems to be so acceptable a very cultural thing to do
For all of the major networks are advertising it to me and you:
The bottles of the Ole Jack Daniels the Michelobs and Miller lite
Never get followed up by the medical warnings or some insight...

He drank his life away.. yet he had it under control
This is what he said.. when the questions started to roll
A little bit won't hurt you . it helps me to calm down
When they carried him away empty bottles were all around

Why was it he poured those glasses of liquor so many times
He had everything he'd ever wanted but must we read between the lines
He was trying to cover up some something that he could never tell
So he smiled beneath that whiskey and that bottle that made him swell

He drank his life away.. yet he had it under control
This is what he said.. when the questions started to roll
A little bit won't hurt you . it helps me to calm down
When they carried him away empty bottles were all around
