Do you get discouraged,
When your weakness…you do see;
When others…all around you,
See the same…and must agree?
Some appear to have it all together,
On the outside…all looks great;
But, we never know for sure,
The troubles piled upon their plate.
Some are good at concealing,
The outside of their cup is clean;
But, what lurks beneath the surface,
What lurks in the unseen?
Do not be discouraged,
For when we’re weak that’s good;
We know for sure…our limits,
When we’ve done all we could.
But, there’s a Higher Power,
Our Creator…Father God;
And, He knows our limitations,
Our need to have Him as our LORD.
We have this blessed hope…within,
His strength is all we need;
Our natural strength won’t get us through,
That still, small voice…we must heed.
So, be of good cheer,
When we see our weakness…know;
His strength is all we need,
Stronger and stronger in Him…grow.
When we see those all around us,
Who, so stalwart do appear;
Remember that they too,
Will one day…be stripped of their veneer.
When that day comes,
And, it surely will;
Be kind…be gracious to them,
Smile a lot and just be still.
Our Father has His time-table,
And, He’s always right on time;
He will begin to show them,
From the pit of their abilities…the way to climb.
The way up…is always down,
And, when we hit the bottom;
There…He will be to help us,
Draw us close to His bosom.
When we surrender all our strength,
Put Father in control;
Then, we begin to see,
His strength come forth…unfurl.
What a glorious revelation,
When we begin to see;
That His ways are always best,
It always was His plan for you and me!
