You Can Do It, With His Strength

By Sindy Nagel

 

When the road you’re on is long and hard

With snares on either side

Take My hand; I’ll lead you on

I AM your strength and guide.

 

When challenges present themselves

And keep you from your way

Run to Me, I’m here for you

To walk you through your day.

 

When sorrow strikes and grief sets in

Your Comforter, I’m He

I’ll hold you in My loving arms

Your strength I’ll always be.

 

When sin is knocking at your door

Asking you to play

Call on Me, I’ll give you strength

There is a better way.

 

When hope is gone and your heart feels weak

You need a loyal friend

I AM your ever-present strength

I AM faithful to the end.

 

When you’re all alone and gripped with fear

Of some impending threat

I am your Fortress and your Shield

That truth, do not forget.

 

When the task at hand is much too large

For you to do yourself

I AM the One who gets you through

Trust Me to give you help.

 

You can do everything

You set your hand to do

Do not fear what lies ahead

My strength will lead you through.

 

Inspired by the Word of God from Philippians 4:13

“I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.”

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

His Joy is Here to Stay

By Sindy Nagel

 

Trust in Him, the God of hope

Who fills you with His peace

The Spirit’s power within your heart

Will be your joy-filled feast.

 

It matters not what circumstance

You find you’re in today

God will walk you through your trials

He is your hope and stay.

 

His joy and peace; His endless love

Is true abundant life

It carries you through thick and thin

No matter what your strife

 

His strength He gives the weary

He fortifies the weak

He lifts you up on eagle’s wings

When heartfelt joy you seek

 

Fame and fortune do not last

Worldly “happy” fades away

But with His Spirit deep inside

His joy is here to stay.

 

Inspired by the Word of God from Romans 15:13

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

 


 

 

Do Not Be Discouraged

Run to the Arms of God

by Sindy Nagel

 

When discouragement beats me down

I run to the arms of God.

He holds my hand and leads me on

Where others have not trod.

 

He gives new strength to my tired bones

And hope to my weary soul.

He makes me of sound mind again

In Him I now am whole.

 

He calls me in His righteousness

To bring new sight to the blind

To release those held in prison

If only in their mind.

 

I will not fear, for I’m redeemed

And called by His new name.

He healed me and transformed me;

I will never be the same.

 

The road less traveled has its bumps

The sailing sometimes rough

But still I will press on for Him

Because He is enough.

 

Inspired by the Word of God:

“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are mine.” (Isaiah 43:1)

“I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.” (Isaiah 42:6-7)

 


 

Share His Message of Love

Amplify My Voice

By Sindy Nagel

 

Intensify my heart, O Lord, and AMPLIFY my voice

To IMPACT those around me and reduce the worldly noise.

You’ve knit together in my heart a passionate DESIRE

To share the GOODNESS of your love and set the world on fire.

 

You’ve put a MESSAGE in my mouth that people need to hear

PREPARE the hearts of those You want to lend a listening ear.

EQUIP ME with compassion as I share my hope in You

OPEN doors and lay the groundwork only You can do.

 

You’ve GIFTED me to do the work You planned for me to do

As a STEWARD of Your generous love, I offer them to you.

Here I am, Lord, USE ME now to carry out your ways

Let me be Your SALT and LIGHT for all my earthly days.
