When Your World Falls Apart

When your troubled and
worried and sick at heart
And your plans are upset
and your world falls apart,
Remember God’s ready
and waiting to share
The burden you find
too heavy to bear.

Life Can’t Always Be A Song — Helen Steiner Rice

Life can’t always be a song—
You have to have trouble to
make you strong,
So whenever you are troubled
And everything goes wrong,
It is just God working in you
to make your spirit strong.
Helen Steiner Rice

For Me

Under the Eastern sky,
Amid a rabble’s cry,
A man went forth to die
For me.
Thorn-crowned His blessed head,
Blood-stained His every tread;
Cross-laden, on He sped
For me.
Pierced glow His hands and feet,
Three hours o’er Him beat
Fierce rays of noontide heat
For me.
Thus wert Thou made all mine;
Lord, make me wholly Thine;
Grant grace and strength divine
To me.
In thought, and word, and deed
Thy will to do. Oh, lead
My soul, e’en though it bleed,
To Thee.

Morning Is Near — Helen Steiner Rice

Nothing in life can defeat me,
For as long as this knowledge
I can suffer whatever is happening,
For I know God will break
all the chains
That are binding me tight
in the darkness
And trying to fill me with fear. . .
For there is no night
with dawning,
And I know that my morning is near.
Helen Steiner Rice

Thy Wonders Are Displayed

Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed
Wherever I turn my eye,
If I survey the ground I tread
Or gaze upon the sky!
Isaac Watts

You Shall Receive

All we really ever need
Is faith as a grain of mustard seed,
For all God asks is that you believe,
For if you do, ye shall receive.
Helen Steiner Rice

Winds Blowing, Softly Whispering


IMG_0847Moment by moment,
I KNOW He is with me
I feel His presence
I hear His voice
He showers me with His Love
In Him I rejoice.

Ever near me
Ever in me
His Grace overwhelming my soul
I know He is making me whole

Shaping me
Molding me
Restoring me
Refreshing me
My heart is astounded
By all He offers

I am His willing handmaiden
Desiring to be fit for Him
Desiring to honor Him
Desiring to be used for Him
Furthering His Kingdom
Every moment of every day

Sharing His Love
Sharing His Hope
Proclaiming His goodness
Proclaiming His promises
To all I meet, everywhere He takes me

Sometimes those I encounter
Heed not what I say,
Heed not what I share,
Heed not what He offers
It breaks my heart
It breaks His heart

Yet, silence about my faith
I can not comprehend
For I treasure His…

Jesus Saves

Shout salvation full and free;
Highest hills and deepest caves;
This our song of victory,–
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Thank You For The Miracles

Thank you for the miracles
we are much too blind to see,
And give us new awareness
of our many gifts from Thee,
And help us to remember
that the key to life and living
Is to make each prayer a prayer of
thanks and every day Thanksgiving.
Helen Steiner Rice

What Will You Do Without Him

I could not do without Him!
Jesus is more to me
Than all the richest, fairest gifts
Of earth could ever be.
But the more I find Him precious–
And the more I find Him true–
The more I long for you to find
What He can be to you.
