August 11, 2007

This has been one of those weeks when every phone call has brought sad many all around us are hurting from the pain of losing loved ones, divorce, illness, and heartache. I pray that this will be an encouragement to you.


I refuse to be discouraged
To be sad or to cry,
I refuse to be downhearted,
And here’s the reason why.
I have a God who’s mighty
Who’s sovereign and supreme.
I have a God who loves me
And I am on His team.
He is all wise and powerful...
Jesus is His name.
Though everything is changeable,
My God remains the same.
My God knows all that’s happening,
Beginning to the end.
His presence is my comfort.
He is my dearest friend.
When sickness comes to weaken me,
To bring my head down low,
I call upon my mighty God..
Into His arms I go.
When circumstances threaten
To rob me of my peace,
He draws me close unto His breast,
Where all my strivings cease.
And when my heart melts within me,
And weakness takes control,
He gathers me into His arms..
He soothes my heart and soul.
The great "I AM" is with me.
My life is in His hand.
The "Son of God" is my hope
It’s in His strength I stand.
I refuse to be defeated,
My eyes are on my God.
He has promised to be with me,
As through this life I trod.
I’m looking past all my circumstances
To Heaven’s bright throne above;
My prayers have reached
The heart of God,
I’m resting in His love.
I give God thanks in everything,
My eyes are on His face.
The battle’s His, the victory is mine;
He’ll help me win the race.
