In Our Garden Alone
Such Beautiful Roses
The Potter's Hands
Completely Free
A Million Years
Blessings In Time of Trial
We'd Gladly Give
Gloriously Reap
God's Eternal Call
Like An Oak Tree
Bear His Fruit
The Simple Man
A Sure Foundation
He'll Be Your Dad
Time is Precious
Strength for the Race
Perfect Healing
Redeemed to Serve
Never Give Up in the Valley
A Fountain in the Valley
A Little Portion of Heaven
The Sun Shines So Much Brighter
What Manner of Man is This?
Strength in Christ
A Bright New Life
That Old Rugged Tree
Know Ye Not?
Lord, Thank You
The Song of a Soul Set Free
A Beautiful Creature
Something Out of Nothing
The Prayer of Jabez
It All Goes Back in the Box
You Will Never Be Alone
No Need to Worry
Draw Nigh to God
The One Way Street
My Life is in His Hands
A Day of Disaster
Resting in Your Hand
God Truly Bless America
What Matters
God Alone
Life is Worth the Living
So Much More
Walk The Christian Walk
A Holy Living Sanctuary
Little Things







Such Beautiful Roses



Fine roses come from the thorns in life-
The trials, heartaches and pain,
As God develops a beauty within us,
Working all for our spiritual gain.
Oh, how we desire that the prickly thorns
Be removed out of our life,
But we'd desire it less if we knew God's best
Comes from that trouble and strife.
Paul prayed his thorn would be removed-
Three times he sought God's hand;
His plea was denied and Paul relied
On the Master's perfect plan.
Oh, how we bargain and beg the Father
To remove our painful thorn,
But we'd desire it less if we knew God's best
And could see the roses form.
As He molds and develops us in His Kingdom,
Such talents and gifts He adorns;
Yet, never has there been a beautiful rosebush
Without the piercing thorns;
Those stakes in our heart we feel unbearable,
And everything in us opposes,
Are the very tools our designer uses...
To develop Such Beautiful Roses.



"For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy
to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us."
