Flagging Tape

God, make me flagging tape
Brightly contrasting
Against the landscape
Marking the trail
They right way to go

God, make me flagging tape
Leading to the narrow gate
That leads to you
Standing out
Marking the path

Let God Do the Glowing

Instead of setting up
And planning out
Talks designed to
Lead to talk about Jesus

Let God do the glowing,
Let Him shine through you
He’ll draw people to Him
By His spirit in your heart

Focus on God
Show people His love
Share His grace and mercy
His Name will come up

Like moths to a flame
We’re drawn to God’s light
Let God do the glowing
Be a lamp He can shine

No Place to Hide

This world is round,
It has no corners,
There is no place
To hide from God.
He made this planet
And He knows
Every inch the way
A mother knows
Her baby’s every cry
There’s no place to hide.
Nowhere He can’t reach
Nowhere He can’t love you
Nowhere He can’t hold you
Nothing to separate you
From God’s love.
There’s place to hide.

Calls Your Name

When God calls out your name,
He isn’t calling because
He can’t find you
He’s calling you to see
Whether or not you’ll answer

When God calls out your name,
No matter how you hear it,
He isn’t calling from
A great distance
He’s already with you

When God calls out your name,
He doesn’t want to destroy you
He wants your attention
Often just to say
“I love you”

When God calls your name,
How you answer is your choice
You can run or say,
“Here I am, Lord.”
The Bible has stories of both

When God calls my name
Sometimes it scares me
Until I remember His love
I have learned to say
“Here I am, Lord.”

Not Fair

This world is not fair,
Sorry to break the news to you,
But I’m probably not
The first one to tell you
This undeniable truth.

But wait, there’s more,
God isn’t fair either
No, He sees all the things
We’ve done wrong
And erases them.

He isn’t fair at all, God forgives
No matter what we did.
I hope I’m not
The first one to tell you
This undeniable truth.

How He Whispers

In a whisper
Like a mother
Speaking softly to
Her child
Is the voice
Of Father God
Gentle and quiet
Leading and loving
That’s how He speaks
Like a grandpa
Who just wants
To see and spend
Time with you
That’s how He speaks
Not in the thunder
But in the eye
Of the storm
That’s how He speaks
Quietly, in a whisper.

The Ultimate Compliment

To be like my mom
Would be the ultimate
Achievement, the best
Compliment I could get

To be like my mom
Is my goal
When I grow up
Even though I’m an adult

When I look at my daughters
I surely see
How much they
Take after me

And I can’t help
But to think
I hope for them
To be like my mom

She’s my hero,
She taught me to love
She’s a leader
She taught me to forgive

She’s my cheering section,
My councilor, my mentor
She introduced me to Jesus
And led me to His house

To be like my mom
Would be the ultimate
Achievement, the best
Compliment I could get
