During trials and tribulations

Though God seems distant and far away

He is much nearer than I know

For I am cupped in the palm of His hand

When God seems silent

His voice is drowned out by the noise of life

He bids me to be still

Incline my ear to Him and listen

When I’m tempted to fear and tremble

Walk by sight…focused on my circumstances

The Lord commands me

Take every thought captive in obedience to Christ

May I dare to walk by faith

Take God at His word

May I trust Him enough – to trust Him

Even when I don’t understand what He is accomplishing
