"This Father's Day

I am not worthy to receive of  Your perfect love
Yet I have been blessed by Your saving grace
As I was disfigured many times by worldly sin
I am thankful for the salvation that I now taste

Not a perfect son who should receive such favor
When for my many sins I should have died
I am made humble by this love I now receive
That makes tears fall freely so deep inside

I am the example of what Your kindness can do
To one who embraces the living word they need
As before in the past I would never drink of
The living water in Your spirit which set me free

Yet still being a sinner, a true prodigal son
Who by Your grace and mercy was led to the path
I pushed forward, rising up until I came to Your door
Finding a pure forgivness that would always last

And the only words that I can express to You
Speaking from my lips in a most wholesome way
Is to tell You how blessed my world now is
To be counted Your loving son this Father's day!

"The One Who Satisfies My Needs"

You did bring me in my life full circle
To rest so serenely in your arms
You protect my entire person
So no part of me will ever suffer harm

When i am hungry Lord you feed me
And when I thirst you make me full
The life essence living within your word
Makes me to do better in all that I do

Whenever I am feeling sorry for myself
Your spirit makes my eyes to see
That there are so many others
Who do suffer much more than me

And at that moment I am empowered
To pray for all that I do see and meet
That they may come to know the love
Of the One who satisfies all my needs.
