Trials come from various angles

Church Steeple and Cross
Church Steeple and Cross

“We walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Cor 5:7

How soon the harvest? We cannot tell

But towards the anchor keep on rowing

What the future hour may hold in view

We have no way of knowing.

Cease to shorten the day with undue grief

Pray for the courage that will not fail,

Today is ours, so let’s embrace it

Permit nothing your faith to derail.

As we look to Him who has gone before

Strength we find in the present mile,

Day by day with each passing moment

Grace is given to meet the trial.

So let nothing or no-one defeat you

Mindful God’s promise is ever new,

Though trials may come from various angles

His gentle hand remains upon you.
