11-28-14 Courage Under Fire

christian soldier

No weapon used against me shall I fear,

No enemy the strength to break my will,

For Jesus is my shield, He is my spear,

He’s with me in the valley, on the hill.

The Lord is my salvation, He’s my light.

Why be afraid with Jesus by my side?

He gives my spirit power with His might

And brings me victory, for He’s my guide.

He gives me life, so I’ve no fear of death;

I can’t complain; He suffered for my soul.

I’ll live for Him until my dying breath

And die for Him, for He has made me whole.

Though missiles fly around me I am calm,

For Jesus shelters me within His palm.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?

the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalm 27:1 KJV

9-12-14 My Cup Runneth Over

jesuslamb

Now through the valley on to open plains

I follow in the shadow of my Lord.

Though evil wants to tie me up with chains

He makes a feast for me before the horde.

My faith consumes the sacred bread and wine,

While Satan stands defeated once again,

And grace anoints my head e’en while I dine;

No longer do I serve the likes of men.

My Saviour do I praise forever more!

This cup of joy will always overflow.

His Presence makes my blissful spirit soar,

And where He leads is where that I must go.

My enemies do watch and gnash their teeth;

My Shepherd’s love surrounds me like a wreath.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thou preparest a table before me

in the presence of mine enemies:

thou anointest my head with oil;

my cup runneth over.

Psalm 23:5 KJV

9-11-14 Through the Valley

valley george inness

The valley of the shadow of my death

Is filled with hidden demons clawed with doubt.

Though evil may dissuade with ev’ry breath,

I have no fear: my Shepherd’s here throughout.

My soul draws nigh toward this journey’s end

And I stand facing my eternity,

But when I die my spirit will ascend:

My Shepherd’s face is all that I can see.

He holds the rod of strength, His Holy Word;

His staff is victory beyond the grave;

When I pass on, this body is interred,

Yet there’s no sting; my spirit He did save.

Though I must walk into the valley floor,

My Shepherd guides me through an open door.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;

thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Psalm 23:4 KJV
