“God is our refuge and strength.” Psa 46:10
Take heart, God has promised to sustain you
Don’t lose your smile, though shadows fall
Faith and courage will keep you going
As you look upwards and recall.
The countless times that you’ve been blessed
And how events helped you to realise,
That things that seemed to mar your pathway
Were really blessings in disguise.
It’s not always easy to respond to
The unexpected things that come your way
Each difficulty may hold a lesson
Though unrevealed to you today.
Hold fast and stand on the written promises
And once again your blessings retrace,
To be thankful for all that passes your way
Gently releases God’s mercy and grace.
