Attending Bible school at age 17, it was expressed there is a need for modern day Christian writers. So I have accepted the challenge.
If I Have Anything
If I have lived and not died, then it is a gift from the Lord
If I have any hope in this life of success, it is from the Lord
The years I have spent already, they are from the Lord
Children born from my seed, they are gifts from the Lord,
And their years and time on Earth are a gift from the Lord
Let me point it out to you, It is all from the goodness of the Lord.
My health and prosperity, and prospects of life are a gift from the Lord
My fortunes and even my follies are allowed by the Lord
Any blessings that I have are from the Lord
My feet and hands and their ability are gifts from the Lord
My soundness of mind is given me by the Lord
If I have anything, It is given me from the Lords hands
My inspirations and my dreams are born in my spirit from the Lord
Inner strength and self worth is born within me from the Lord
My outlook and my faith born within me is of the Lord
Any battle of conscience fought within is about the Lord
Mercies are renewable, so failing is not an option due to the Lord.
I will daily win any constant struggles based on my relationship with Him
Anywhere I go and the beauty of life I see is a gift from the Lord
My life's opportunities don't just happen without the grace of the Lord
Who I am and where I was born was a divine invention of the Lord
He who spoke my life's journey into existence was the Lord
As creator, as my designer and very life giver, He is Jesus, My Lord
As Everlasting God, and maker of all things, He is the Lord
So, If I have anything at all, it is from Him, my King.
He who guards me with the heavenly angels, is the mighty Lord
He who watches over me constantly, is the Lord
The songs of praise born within my soul are from the Lord
Majestically, he rules over my world, as the Lord of Lords
In a time long ago, he saw my need, and died for my sins, this merciful Lord
On a cruel rugged cross, executed by men, this was Jesus
Destined to die, and take my place and yours, as our Savior, as our Lord
When I was in my mothers womb, He who made plans for my life
Knew I would need mercy, knew I would need grace knew I would need his love
This was his mission, his purpose, His life for mine, this lamb of God
Now I thank him for everything he's given me, thank you Lord
For every times he's delivered me, thank you sweet Lord
For every challenge and every moment of happiness, thank you Lord
For setting me on a rock and leading me in a straight path, Oh Lord.
I worship you, adore and exalt you in all splendor, and royal praise my Lord
I cannot understand it all, but I know he is all knowing, this greatest Lord
In times of trouble, he is the Lord, In times of distress, he is still God
When I come to him in tears, He bears my burdens, oh my compassionate Lord
Sometimes times when I can't stand to live, he gives me a new hope of Life
In trials, in darkness, in loss, loneliness and defeat, who has my back but the Lord?
Beautiful in situation and in times of desperation, my friend is the gracious Lord
In happiness as well, in times of awe and wonder, what a companion is my Lord
Life has led me to walk with him, to talk with him as man to his Lord
Forever settled, my Savior who gave his own life for me, saying I am your Lord!
Joy will fill my soul with gladness in the morning oh Lord.
My mouth will offer you praise, mighty one of heaven born.
In my heart you will forever live, and I victorious because of you Lord
What I found in you will never cease, your work in me, until eternity
What enemy can I ever have, when you are on my side, dear precious God?
Your presence follows me and directs me on my way upward, Lord
Fill me now, forget me not, for my sake and my children's sake Lord, my Lord
Let it never end, my part in this, For he is the Lord, He is the Lord!
