Oh! What God Can Do

Look how God turned it around
Oh! What God can do
Two years ago I was in frowns
As my world came crashing down
Nothing would go right for me
I never knew how sad and hopeless life could be

Sustained by friends encouraging wors
To never give up
inspired by artists songs
That the Lord would deliver
Clinging to preachers messages of hope
Readind His word, and praying more and more
This is how I kept going

And just as I thought I was permanently down
Oh! God turned it around
Oh! What God can do
His mercy is forever, His word so true.

Now I see

Now I see
Why You didn’t answer me
When I prayed
But you delayed
You delayed the blessings for better times
And now I see, now I have an open mind

Some things needed to be straightened out
Before this blessing I received
If I would have gotten it earlier
I wouldn’t have been happy

I didn’t understand all the obstacles that got in the way
But it was Your intention to delay
And now I see
You were protecting me

And You made it better
Than I would have imagined
You blessed me with more than I was asking
It’s better than I thought it would be
You delayed the blessing And now I see.

Scripture Reference
God can bless us beyond our imagination. But His time for the blessing may be different from the time we expect to receive it.
Ephesians 3:20 Says “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,”

And Acts 1 :7 says “And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.” 

An Even Higher Thanks

Today the Navy’s Blue Angels did a flyover over the city
They did it to give special thanks to the healthcare workers
For their tireless, heroic, work during this pandemic
As I thought about the well, deserved jester
Not only to the health care workers; but for all who work the front line
I thought about how God deserves an even higher thanks

Navy’s Blue Angels

It is God who is keeping everything intact while we struggle
He is watching over the health care and frontline workers
And God Himself is a tireless worker
Every day and every night He’s keeping the earth intact
Letting His earth still supply food and water
Letting the sun shine and the rain fall
Supplying the earth with what’s needed for  medicines and vaccines
And giving knowledge to scientists and those who develop technology

I can’t fly a jet, but I can lift my hands and open my mouth with praise
Thanks Lord, for keeping us during these difficult days
I wanna be like the people in Nehemiah’s time
I wanna bless the Lord the great God with lifted hands and praise in my mouth

Nehemiah 8:6
And Ezra blessed the Lord the great God.  And all the people answered Amen, Amen with lifting up their hands; and they bowed their heads, and worshipped the Lord with their faces to the ground
