The Lord gave me this poem yesterday. He knows just what we need because I had a particularly discouraging day today.
But praise God, “Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever.” Psalm 125:1
Father, I will wait for you.
For it is you Who gives me hope.
In the hills and in the valleys
I will trust and wait for You.
I will obey; I will be strong.
I will take heart and wait for You.
I will see Your goodness in this land
And You will see me through.
Thank You for Your precious work
For Your good pleasure and will.
In this journey, on this path
Help me, Father, to be still.
It may not go as I had planned.
But your plans are for the best.
I will be strong and not discouraged
As you help me, Lord, through this test.
I will rise on wings like eagles
My new hinds’ feet will leap.
I will walk with You hand in hand
As You take me to the steep.
I will carry Your Word in my heart
As one who carries a bag of seed
And those You place before me
I will reach out my hand to feed.
From Your Word You have taught me
And now You are my strong Tower
I have tasted Your goodness and mercy
And seen Your all surpassing power.
Every day, in every way
Help me to follow You.
My steps are ordered and ordained
And with Your strength I will wait for You.
I hope you are blessed today.
