Trust in You

Help me trust you God, I don't want to falter.
Though circumstances are grim and discouraging
Evil must not win, help me be encouraging.
Help me trust you God, I don't want to falter.

Let your love for all humanity be mine, may I choose to love.
Even in the midst of the world filled with hate,
I choose your love may it not be late,
Let your love for all humanity be mine, may I choose to love.

Set me firmly on Your path, I believe in Your way.
As even basic decency is lost in this place,
Strengthen me for Your pace,
Set me firmly on Your path, I believe in Your way.

O God, may I be found as true, faithful to You.
May I know when and how to fight for Your way,
Being sure if I have anger it is righteous each day,
O God, may I be found as true, faithful to You.

Father, may my heart always believe in You first.
Even as it appears evil is winning after all,
Remind me of Your plan since Adam and Eve's fall,
Father, may my heart always believe in You first.

Cottage-by-the-Sea, #8, 4/5/16

Abba Father:
You are the Lord, God Almighty,
The Author and Creator of life,
Even if the circumstances are horrible,
You are now and will always be,
The I Am, our Provider, a Father most kind.

I tried to remember that as I’ve laid here,
In great pain and endure and wait.
For three very long weeks,
Capped by three very long nights.
And I thought I’d lost my mind.

Then I heard Your voice in the waves,
So I called back, “Here I am”,
The sands multiplied Your presence,
The thunder shook the Seaside,
Lightning zipped storm to land to find.

The Cottage filled with Your Spirit,
Ideas were written on my heart,
One by one they made it better,
Finally it was really over,
There were answers in God’s sign.

Today, I sat on the deck,
Watched seagulls fly and dive.
Waves roll and crash
Sand reveal and bury treasures.
All the time I knew a truth that binds.

No matter how messy or hard the circumstances,
God is beside us all the way by prayer,
And He loves us enough to answer our calls,
When we rise from the meal of bitterness,
God Himself has known we were being refined.

All glory to Him we are His and cannot be separated!
