Hardship – Hebrews 12:7

Hardship – Hebrews 12:7

Hard times ahead
From the bad moments of the past
It forever keeps on coming
At times only tears will fall
When a soul feels it cannot go on
But hardship is a discipline
Where lessons come from the test
Where the Father disciplines His children
To grow them with each test
So hardships will come
But never more than you can take
See it as a process of growing
So embrace the tough times ahead

Hebrews 12:7

Tested (1 Corinthians 10:13)

Tested (1 Corinthians 10:13)

I have been tested
Thrown deep into the fire
I felt the heat rise
Yet He never left my side
Together we walked from the flames
Into the freedom beyond

I was washed away by the flood
As the tide charged down my path
For a while I slipped beneath the waves
Yet He was always there at my side
Together we walked upon the waters
Onto the golden shores beyond

1 Corinthians 10:13

To Persevere

To Persevere (James 1:2-4)

When I fall to my knees
With my prayers screamed out
To Heaven above
That’s when I find You there
To pick me up
Out of the dirt
You place in me Your mighty strength
To keep on keeping on

To persevere
No matter what the trial
To persevere
No matter how great the pain
To persevere
Through the test of the storms
To persevere
Through the trials of the fight

You never leave my side
My comforter in the night
The bringer of joy
With the light of the morning
And rebuilder of this heart
For the great things ahead
So I’ll walk together with You
And persevere through every trial

James 1:2-4

Fallen Giants

Fallen Giants (Isaiah 25:9)

As I walk towards the mountain
That stands tall within my path
Casting dark shadows upon my soul
I take this moment to look around
To see behind me the mountains
That we have already conquered
For You are my Lord
And I have trusted in You
And together we defeated those giants
So now I look to You
For You are my Lord
Now I trust in You
And rejoice in my salvation
So now I face the mountain
With my head held high
And with every step I take
I will praise Your name
Until I stand upon the top
Of another fallen giant
And proclaim once more Your victory

Isaiah 25:9

Weary Soul

Weary Soul (Proverbs 3:24)

In the test I have triumphed
In the trials I have overcome
Yet this battle leaves my weary
I have no strength left within

This night Lord I lie before You
This night Lord I lie here afraid
That tomorrow I will not rise
With the heart to face the day

I pray Lord for Your peace this night
I pray Lord for Your sweetest rest
So when the battles rages before me
I find Your strength within to fight
