He Knows Your Name
When you are having problems
And feel there's no help around.
First take one step forward,
To get to higher ground.
If you think that God doesn't hear you
Then that, is really a shame
Not only does He hear every prayer you say;
But He knows you, by your name.
It does not matter just where you are
When you call upon the Lord.
He will be listening with a well-tuned ear
And will understand every word.
Be ready to listen to what He says,
As He tells you what to do.
For that will be your instructions
Because the rest will be up to you.
You should thank Him for His kindness,
Because He was standing by.
And not as you thought; He had turned away
And would never, hear your cry.
Even though you have made so many mistakes.
He will not hold you to blame.
For now, you are fully forgiven.
And remember, He knows your name.

Don't Give Up
At times we feel like giving up and saying, "whatís the use?"
We feel weíve disappointed God, at least thatís our excuse.
Godís love for us will never change, for the bible tells us so.
Rather than saying "I give up," itís to God that we should go.
We need to humbly kneel to God, and pour out all our sorrow.
Tell Him of our aching heart, and ask His help to face tomorrow.
Tell Him our feelings of loneliness, and the failures we have seen.
Tell Him of our struggles and fears, and confess we feel unclean.
We, as Christians, are not exempt from the sins of daily living.
So we need to talk with God in prayer, for He always is forgiving.
He knows each sin that we commit, but Heíll never hide His face.
He loves us and Heíll welcome us back to His throne of grace.
If from our heart, we truly repent, God will instantly forgive.
He knows that in this sinful world, a godly life is hard to live.
By nature we are sinful people, and daily battles weíll always face.
Thatís why God in His infinite mercy sent His Son to take our place.
Jesus suffered and died on Calvary's cross, to give the gift of grace.
He paid the ultimate price ~ He bore the sins of the human race.
With God's mercy and love, Christians can face what comes each day.
Sins committed have been "paid," for those who have chosen His way.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and lean not on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and
He will make your paths straight?
"When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said,
"I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life ."
