    Lord, I know that I'm not worthy
    Of the blessings that you give
    But your grace and mercy keep me
    Allowing this filthy wretch to live.

    I'm glad that it is You alone
    Who governs my dying breath
    For if man could do his will
    I would have long before faced death.

    But You've kept your arms around me
    And You've given me a second chance
    Now, it is up to me Dear Lord
    Whether I'll choose my life to enhance.

    Even when I go astray
    You still keep watch over me
    And I am breathing life today
    Simply because of Thee.

    You keep me safe from danger
    You give me strength to make me strong
    You bless me with your undying love
    Which encourages me to press on.

    Lord, I am so grateful for all you do
    Even when I'm outside of Your will
    Lord, you have a forgiving Spirit
    As You continue to bless me still.

    Lord, thank you. Amen!

    HALLELUJAH!

    What a beautiful expression of faith! What a fitting way to use your God given ablity. You are definitely an inspiration to me. I started off doing this sort of thing for Church and got away from it thinking , no one wants to hear this. But with your permission I will share it with my Congregation at this weeks midweek Praise service. It is simply beautiful and should be shared with many.
    Of course I will not take credit. For we both know "To God be the Glory"! But God Bless the vessel!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!:heart:
    "IN ALL THY WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AND HE WILL DIRECT YOUR PATH!"
