All Because By Brenda Drake


            I was not looking to be saved.  I did not even know I needed to be saved.  I am now set aside, and have a new purpose to my life.  I did nothing to earn it and did nothing to deserve it. It is true only because my heavenly Father, His Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit called me to Him and set to work for me to receive such a great gift as this.

All Because

All because of a Father’s love, was mankind saved by grace.
All Because of the obedient Son my sins are erased
Because of a sacrifice on a tree upon the hill;
All because the Son of God died in my place I am fulfilled.
All because of a prayer stated in behalf of my soul;
All because ears heard from the Almighty’s throne;
All because the Spirit wooed and urged my heart to believe;
All because of God’s angels work, to help me receive.
All because of Jesus do I now write this word of rhyme.
All because of mercy and grace am I with Him aligned.
Only because He chose me and because He helped me change,
Am I free to live without bondage and shame.
All because of Him I am brand new within.
I will try to serve and do all I can to glorify Him;

Isaiah 43:10
Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.

Diamonds on God’s Crystal Sea By Brenda Drake

            There is nothing as valuable as God’s favor.  The love poured upon us is precious and abundant in every situation and in every place we step.  His favor is even available in the places we cannot walk without His help.  By faith I walk on the waters to gather the diamonds on God’s sea prepared for me. 

Diamonds on God’s Crystal Sea

Favor shines like diamonds on God’s sea;
That pours out His love as He abides in me.
He kindly observes all I say and do;
The Holy Spirit directs my every move.
As a loving mother cares for her young each day,
Or as a devoted father that gently persuades to obey.
He is as the big brother who walks ahead,
Leading the way the Father’s Word says.
God’s favor attends to every need along the path:
Arranging to keep us healthy and on track,
Whispering sweet loving words in the times of stress,
With thrills of promise that assures all turn out as best,
Displaying High Mountain views of His dream for our life,
And with joy of glorious guarantee of a future with Christ.
Through the living testimony of His provisions for others,
His exciting invitation as He beckons us to His truth discover,
They all shine like diamonds on God’s Crystal Sea.
So great is God’s favor upon His redeemed.

Romans 15:13
Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
