Walking in peace, and strength, and hope, I stand as if on a precipice looking down into a valley of despair. Let my eyes not linger on what could be my reality, but keep my feet steady on the ground beneath me, my eyes fixed on the here and now, and my heart fixed on Thee. For further consideration: Psalm 34:4-7
Thank You, Lord, that in the spiritual world, the battle has ended. It was already over before it had begun. God is in control of this world, of our lives if we choose to follow Him and give Him our hearts. "Let not your souls be troubled, never be afraid," the scriptures resound with promises, that our God has made. We need to see with spiritual eyes The war's already won, claim our peace, trust in God, and see the victory!
I'm trusting in You, Lord, I have no way to change the past, no way to know what tomorrow will bring. My days seem uncertain, quiet solitude fills my time, but You, alone, will prevail. Touch those who are ill, Lord, speak peace to Your people, when we need to trust. Please take away the doubts that brighter days will follow for Your love can shine through us, loving and encouraging us as our minds are staid on You.
The times of our lives seem so uncertain, and yet, as the sky after fleeting rain, a patch of blue can be seen on the horizon. We are like a villager after a terrible storm. We walk as if in a trance to discover that we are still here, unharmed and stronger than before. Let us wait for our redemption when we can worship together once more, clasping hands in faith and praising God that His redemptive work has seen us through.
Oh, the beauty of the ashes when we realize our hearts are new. Painful things surround us, but Your love is in us, holding, forgiving, ever true. Let us help those who need us, and not turn our faces from those in despair. The lion roars and the earth is shaken, and yet our God is evermore. Let our hearts be light, for His truth surrounds us, The Lord is in our midst, and we are not forsaken. Let our courage rest in Thee, You are God over these circumstance, You alone know our destiny.
