“WHEN THE LORD IS WITH US”
Life offers many choices, and some situations do arise
When it can be very hard to think, so exactly what should I do?
But I know I still can make decisions that are no doubt very wise,
When I let the Bible guide me, my Lord will see me through.
When Satan does his very best to tempt me all the day,
And I feel that I’m surrounded and have no place to turn,
There is a place I can escape and God provides the way.
But the tempter’s traps I must resist and properly discern.
However, when I do make bad mistakes, giving in to sins,
I must turn from them with humble heart and try to do my best,
Because that’s how God’s forgiveness so graciously begins,
When I repent with Godly sorrow, my loving Father does the rest.
Trials and tribulations, some persecution I must endure,
But I know that Christ will strengthen me to do the things I must.
The Bible keeps on guiding me and helps me feel secure,
If I meekly persevere each day and in my Lord completely trust.
The future has uncertainties that may lead to grief and tears.
I still must keep following Christ with confidence,
He will help me to overcome all my fears,
As I keep drawing near to Him, trusting in His loving providence.
Though life sometimes has turmoil, with distractions all around,
I know the Lord is there for me, so I must focus on His Will.
His fellowship will bless my life as His love for me abounds,
And His guidance always will give me the peace that He instills.
Though I sometimes get discouraged when life doesn’t go my way,
When life seems so just right for those who are living in the wrong,
I must always count my blessings, being thankful as I daily pray,
Knowing my God is still with me, I can rejoice with words in song!
“That which we have seen and heard, we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.” (1 John 1:3)
