GOD IS THE POTTER

God Is The Potter,
We are The clay.
May He shape us
And Mold Us
In His gentle and Wondrous
Way.
May We give Him All
Of The Glory for All
He has done,
And May We Know
Of a surety
That Our present
And future Battles
He has Already
Won.

Glory Upon Glory
Is due to His Name,
And We shall continue
To bring to it
Fame.
We shall continue to
It sweetly Proclaim.
We shall continue to
It sweetly Proclaim
We shall continue to
Give glory to His Name.



I HAVE AN ANCHOR

I have An Anchor
Wherever I May be
And I know that
Whatever My
Circumstances Are,
In Him I am
Set Free!
I am not bound
By painful happenings
From Almost every side,
For I Know that
As to our perfect
Well being
Our Father's influence
In Jesus' Name
Stretches far and
Wide.
All I have to do
Is to get on My
Knees,
And My Troubles
Will be swept
Aside.
As by a Passing
Breeze.
For They All seem
So infinitesimal
When I bring
Them to Him.
What a strange
Collection
To make such
A din!
How unperceptive
Of Me
To have Allowed
Them to have
Seemed so grim.
For I Know
That I have An Anchor
Wherever
I May be
And that however
Hard
Our circumstances
Are
In Him we Are
Set Free!

WINGS OF FAITH

When Things Have
Gone Wrong
We pray more
Deeply
When Things
Have gone Wrong,
Because We
Need so Very
Much
To find
HIS Song.
So from
The fiery furnace
We emerge,
Cleansed and
Renewed,
a purer Gold.
We would not
If We could
Go back
To things The Way
They Were
Of Old.
For Prayer
Has brought
To Us
Our Wings
And in sweet
Triumph
Our Soul
Sings!



THROUGH THE FIRE

Through the fire,
Through the pain,
I only know
That God
Doth Reign.



GOD IS WATCHING

God is Watching.
Don't Be Afraid
Of Anything,
For You are
Safe
Under HIS Wing.



GOING THRU A STORM

If You go through
A Storm
With Your Thoughts
On High
And without any Doubts
Or Fears,
The dark clouds
Above You
Will All dissolve,
And Your Faith
Will blot away
Any Tears.
Your Skies
Will become clear
As the Unmeasured
Sea of God's Love
While the Storm Clouds
Fade Away.
And Your Faith
Will be Bright
And Shining
As You See
The End
Of The Fray.



SHAKEN AND STIRRED

My Life
Was shaken,
Stirred to the
Very depths
By all of the
Problems
I had to Meet.
But God transformed
It All into
Good.
Just like
He said
He Would!

STRENGTH THROUGH LOSS

I have learned that
Adverse ways bring
Strength thru Loss.
That my Life is More
Used by Thee
After burns away
The Dross.
