Faith's the Key

It is another “My Song Saturday.” These are new lyrics I just completed this morning. The lyrics are to the tune of: “I’m Gonna Live Forever” by Ernie Haase and Signature Sound. I hope you enjoy Faith’s the Key

Let’s give praise to Jesus
He came and lived like one of us
On a cross He died for me.
I have faith and that’s the Key.

Let’s give praise to Jesus
He came and lived like one of us
On a cross He died for me.
I have faith and that’s the Key.

Without You Lord, I am nothing.
To my sin, I’d be holding
I’d look but wouldn’t find love or peace of mind
On my own, I am just wandering.
You come chasing, you keep speaking
I hear your voice, after me calling
My stubborn soul, tries to stand tall and alone
Lord, my heart is falling.

Let’s give praise to Jesus
He came and lived like one of us
On a cross He died for me.
I have faith and that’s the Key.

I know His praise, this day I’ll sing
Let the world see, to him I cling.
With grace that comes from above, I know the King
To God, this day, faith I bring.
My God and King, Today I sing
I bring my praise to you this day
I will sow seeds of hope, if I may
In you, may my faith, grow today.

Let’s give praise to Jesus
He came and lived like one of us
On a cross He died for me.
I have faith and that’s the Key.

Let’s give praise to Jesus
He came and lived like one of us
On a cross He died for me.
I have faith and that’s the Key.

Without You Lord, I am nothing.
To my sin, I’d be holding on
I’d look but wouldn’t find love or peace of mind
On my own, I am just wandering.
You come chasing, you keep speaking
I hear your voice, after me calling
My stubborn soul, tries to stand tall and alone
Lord, my heart is falling.
You’d better praise Jesus
He sure lived like one of us
On a cross He died for me.
I have faith and that’s the Key.
I know His praise, this day I’ll sing
Let the world see, to him I cling.
With grace that comes from above, I know the King
To God, this day, faith I bring.
My God and King, Today I sing
I bring my praise to you this day

Let’s give praise to Jesus
He came and lived like one of us
On a cross He died for me.
I have faith and that’s the Key.

Let’s give praise to Jesus
He came and lived like one of us
On a cross He died for me.
I have faith and that’s the Key.

I love Mike Ashcraft's book, "My One Word." For the past nine years I have participated and encouraged others to participate to in the "My One Word" Challenge. My first word was discipline was my word the first year. Since then my word has been focus, sight, jungle, peace, concentration, serve, genuine and this year is fit. I seek to be fit for my health, my family, my church, my ministries. I seek to be fit in any are of my life where God might point to me. I also have a nickname, "Dr. B." When I was a public high school teacher, Dr. B. is what most of my students called me, at least in my presence. I am still called that by many people though I no longer teach in public schools. I am the author of "Average Joe: With an Extraordinary Story" (available on Amazon). The book fits into the genre of "Biblical Fiction" or "Christian Fiction" and features some of the Bible's lesser known characters. The name of my blog is, "Fork in the Road." Life is filled with forks in the road. It isn't a matter of if we encounter a fork in the road, but when will we and how many will we experience in a lifetime. I love to strum my guitar. I am not a great guitar player but I enjoy it. I also enjoy writing music. I get excited with I feel a new song emerging. I live with my wife Cindy and our little dog, "Bishop" in Lufkin, Texas. I spent the past 30 years as a United Methodist pastor, serving churches all over east and southeast Texas, from just north of Tyler to south of Houston, from the Gulf Coast to east of Madisonville. I currently serve Perritte Memorial UMC in Nacogdoches. I spent one year in the classroom, teaching High School government, economics, psychology, and sociology. Cindy and I have been married for 43 years. We have two grown sons and six grandchildren, three boys and three girls. I enjoy preaching and all it's aspects from research to writing to the actual preaching event. I also love writing, reading. I have dabble in drawing and "painting" with pastels as well as woodworking and woodcarving. My current projects are two ukuleles. I collect, repair and restore guitars too. I play the guitar (badly, but I still do) I also enjoy working with paracord on various projects, mostly prayer ropes I usually give away. I hold an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Business Data Processing, from San Jacinto College in Pasadena, TX, a Bachelor of Science in Political Science with a minor in History from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX, a Master of Divinity from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX and a Doctor of Ministry from Carolina University of Theology. This blog started out as devotional writings. In August of 2020, I made a major change to the blog, switching to a daily theme format. Sunday Sermon-usually my manuscript sermon Miscellaneous Monday-misc. writing, poetry, ministry Tuesday Thoughts-Devotion Wed. with Wesleys-hist. & theol. of early Methodists TED Talk Thursday-Video & appl. in current theology Five for Friday-5 things I've seen & my thoughts Sing-Along Sat. - Usually a new song I have written I write, "Strumming a G-Chord with Dr.B." to get my thoughts onto something permanent. After all, they say, once something is on the internet it never really goes away. Still, I hope you enjoy reading it. Who knows, it might generate a bit of discussion between you and me and anyone else who might make their way here. Seeking the Genuine, Keith Lufkin, Texas August 2020
