What Time I Am Afraid

What Time I Am Afraid

What time I am afraid
I will give Thee thanks
Though all around me fall
I’ll thank Thee for Thy grace
By the blood of Jesus
Through His cross by faith.

What time I am afraid
To Thee, oh Lord, I’ll run,
I will confess my sins
I’ll ask Thee search my heart.

What time I am afraid
I’ll put my Hope in Thee;
You’ll come to my defense
And will my fortress be.

What time I am afraid
I’ll give to Thee my fears
I will sing to Thee
Then to me You’ll draw near.

What time I am afraid,
Oh Lord, I’ll trust in Thee
And thank You, Jesus, for Thy love
And mercy You show me;
Though I am a sinner, Lord,
Thy gift of love is free.

What time I am afraid
I will trust Thee, Lord,
Though my sins be scarlet
You’ve clothed me with Thy robe
Of holy righteousness
Gifted from Thy own
While You these scarlet sins of mine
Upon Thy cross You bore.

What time I am afraid,
Lord, in Thee I will trust
You’ve cast my sins as far away
As east is from the west
And will remember them no more
Not for eternity;
What time I am afraid, oh Lord,
These things I will believe,
In Jesus’ holy name, amen.

All My Cares

Lord, I Give Thee All My Cares

Lord, I give Thee all my cares

I come before Thee now,

On Thy Altar lay them, Lord,

I lay my burdens down.

Lord Jesus, You said, “Come, oh come,

You weary come to Me

And lay thy heavy burdens down

And leave them at My feet.”

Upon thee take My yoke

And rest I’ll give to thee,”

This is what You said, Jesus,

To all who are weary.

I come, I come, Lord Jesus,

To Thee with all my needs

I give to Thee my troubles

While You give me Thy peace.

I come, I come, Lord Jesus,

And give Thee all my cares

And in my heart You sing to me

Thy love and mercy prayers

That comfort and restore my soul

And wash away my fears,

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.

Jesus said, “Come unto Me,

all ye that labor and are heavy laden,

and I will give you rest.

Take My yoke upon you,

and learn of Me;

for I am meek and lowly in heart:

And ye shall find rest unto your souls.”

~ Matthew 11:28-29

Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank You that we can come to Thy Altar and cast our burdens and cares at Thy feet knowing that You care for each one of us and love us as much as if we were Thy only child You had to love.

Thank You that You will lift our cares and burdens and replace them with Thy peace. You will never fail or forsake us. For so Thy word has promised and You keep every promise forever.

Father God, thank You for loving us so much that although we are sinners You sent Thy beloved Son Jesus to the cross to forgive us and redeem us from our sins.

We love You, In Jesus name, amen.

Songs of Comfort

Songs Of Comfort

One night a few years ago I was out with my husband and friends who’s son was performing on the vibes at a local cafe.
It was getting late, some young women soaked in perfume came in and sat near us.
I immediately prayed that the Lord would protect me from getting a migraine.
Scents are one of my fiercest migraine triggers.
Suddenly as I was listening to the music, I became aware of all of the colors in the cafe; then everything I saw and heard poured like an uncontrolled river into my brain simultaneously.
I had no ability to focus on anything I heard or saw.
Now the cafe loomed up around me like a room crowded with thunder and giants in a blaze of unrestrained colors. I seemed to see every minute detail of everything ~the people and what they were wearing, every nuance of every color in the room, the windows, what was outside them, what was on the walls, the globe lights ~ and I could smell every odor~ the food cooking, the smoke from the grill, the smell of people and their colognes, shampoo, soap, as well as whatever they were drinking or eating ~ all of which was profoundly nauseating.
And all the while the music poured into my ears along with all of the other information without a director to focus my thoughts. It was like being in a madhouse.
As panic arose in my heart, I prayed for the Lord to rescue me.
Suddenly I felt His presence holding me close.
Although my brain was still in a state of uncontrolled sensory input, now I was no longer afraid for the Lord was guarding my thoughts and helping me to view the experience from a different perspective.
For the Lord had suggested to me, “Isn’t this fascinating, you don’t often get to see and hear things like this. Just think of it as a story you are writing.”
So then I calmed down and was even able for a few seconds at least to focus on bits of conversations around me. If raucous laughter was like nails piercing my ears, even the barest whispers were strangely loud for I seemed able to hear every noise in the room along with the music.
One moment I was mesmerized by someone’s drama only to be attracted by someone else’s saga behind me, and then the music, then the colored lights, then BANG went my head exploding in pain, and the room went spinning and I almost passed out.
I don’t even know how Mark got me home.
I vaguely remember our friends asking if I were all right.
Then Mark saying we had to leave.
“Hush, Be Still, Be Silent…” one of the comforting songs on my new album Paths of Mercy is just the right prayer song for a migraine sufferer. 🙂
There are so many prayer songs on Paths of Mercy that are just right for someone who needs to calm down, to get quiet before the Lord, to return and rest in Christ.
The prayer songs on this album are some of the most encouraging songs that my Savior has ever inspired.
Sometimes people ask why they have to suffer. There is a passage in the Bible I cling to that helps me put my own suffering in perspective every time I listen to the comforting prayer songs, poems, and music the Lord gives me.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,
who comforts us in all our troubles,
so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort
we ourselves receive from God.
For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ,
so also our comfort abounds through Christ.
If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation;
if we are comforted, it is for your comfort,
which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. ” (NIV) 2 Corinthians 1:3-6
“Oh Lord, You Know The Way I Take,” is a prayer song that reflects my challenges in just showing up to any task by faith when I barely have any strength to get out of bed.
The “Prayer Song to Jesus My Good Shepherd,” is one I love to listen to and sing often because it encompasses so many of my challenges and presents my needs upon Christ’s Altar of Mercy and Grace.

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16 KJV

“Hush, Be Still, Be Silent…” the prayer song I referred to earlier, is one I praise and thank my Lord for always.
This song truly presents my needs to God when I have migraines and all my thoughts are whirring about in my brain like a blender out of control, and only the Lord can push the stop button and reassemble all the fragments and corral them back into the fold of rationality.
And which of us cannot say that we don’t need to seek the Lord now while He can be found?
I know I harp on this but All of these songs were inspired by the Holy Spirit and the scriptures.
They came to me as gifts from the Lord and I am profoundly grateful and humbled by them.
God’s gifts more than anything remind me of the truth of the scriptures that God indeed has no favorites.

Weeping For Thy Church

Weeping For Thy Church

I’m weeping, weeping Jesus

For Thy Holy Church,
Fasting, Lord, and weeping,
Hear my prayers, oh Lord…
Lord, my heart is bleeding
Bleeding for Thy Church,
Suffering for Thy needy
Hear each cry, oh Lord…
Lord Jesus, hear me seeking
Seeking Thee, Savior
Who redeemed us for Thyself
Lord Jesus, heal Thy Church.
On Son of God, oh Risen Christ
Who bled for all our souls
Let us all return to Thee
Thy Church to Thee restore…
Restore Thy Church from seeking
God’s that are not Thee
May we all repent for worshiping
The god of me…
I’m weeping, weeping, Jesus
Lord, You alone I seek
To give all praise and glorify
To make my God and King…
In Jesus’ holy name,
Amen.

——————————————
Thanks for listening to my bible study this morning with me. I will have to continue this study as the Lord enables me! But this has been amazing.
I pray the Lord has spoken to you through this poem and bible study as He has to me. Please join me in prayer for all the Lord’s people, especially those who may be suffering in any way.
As one who lives with chronic pain I understand the challenges of trials. Those who are not suffering please pray for those who are. In this way, we can in Christ’s love lay our lives down for each other by helping to shoulder someone else’s burden.
Prayer is an act of love that everyone in the Body of Christ can participate in. May God bless you and fill you all with His Holy Love for you, in Jesus name, amen.
Peace and Grace,
Suzanne
