God is calling us

God is calling us to a higher place
where He will meet us face to face
where the spirit is drawing us near
where His word is very clear
trials and tribulations are layed at the cross
yet laying our lives down will cost
for when faith and obedience are drawning near
means listening and hearing without fear
can you hear Him speak to you
He wants you to give Him everything in all you do
to give Him glory when suffering seems great
to pray always without fate
to trust Him dearly when all seems lost
with all abandonment with all cost
a deeper depth than ever before
for Him to be center more and more

Why I follow Jesus

You ask why I follow this Jesus?
Why I love Him the way I do?
When the world's turned away from His teachings
And the people who serve Him are few.

It's not the rewards I'm after
Or gifts that I hope to receive
It's the Presence that calls for commitment
It's the Spirit I trust and believe.

The Lord doesn't shelter His faithful
Or spare them all suffering and pain,
Like everyone else I have burdens,
And walk through my share of rain.

Yet He gives me a plan and a purpose,
And that joy only Christians have known,
I never know what comes tomorrow,
But I do know I'm never alone.

It's the love always there when you need it;
It's the words that redeem and inspire,
It's the longing to ever be with Him
That burns in my heart like a fire.

So you ask why I love my Lord Jesus?
Well, friend, that's so easy to see,
But the one thing that fills me with wonder is
Why Jesus loves someone like me.
