We Shall Endure

The Hand that paints upon the air
Keeps us in His tender care.

My eyes fill with tears
As my thoughts fill with prayer
The unknown with its fear
Threatens doubt and despair
But we have His promises
To comfort; reassure
And there by His goodness
We shall endure

To win or succeed
We cannot succumb
To thoughts of defeat
Though our spirit grows numb
Our God is infallible
And we are secure
In Him; All-powerful
We shall endure

My heart fills with hope
As my thoughts fill with Him
When we cannot cope
And our vision grows dim
We lift our petitions
To Love perfect; pure
Then, by His will and wisdom
We shall endure

To God; He beholds
Into mysteries of gold
We see only glimpses
But we know for sure
That as God is our witness
We shall endure

Written for my dear friends far away who need our prayers desperately…
…for their protection I cannot reveal their names, location or specific needs, but God knows.
Please pray for them, that they may be granted wisdom and safety as they face vast Unknowns.


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed!
