Heart Gifts

In Hours of Discouragement

God Is Our Encouragement

 

Sometimes we feel uncertain
And unsure of everything,
Afraid to make decisions,
Dreading what the day will bring-
We keep wishing it were possible
To dispel all fear and doubt
And to understand more readily
Just what life is all about -
God has given us the answers
Which too often go unheeded,
But if we search His promises
We'll find everything that's needed
To life our faltering spirits
And renew our courage, too,
For there's absolutely nothing
Too much for God to do-
For the Lord is our salvation
And our strength in every fight,
Our redeemer and protector,
Our eternal guiding light-
He has promised to sustain us,
He's our refuge from all harms,
And underneath this refuge
Are the everlasting arms-
So cast your burden on Him,
Seek His counsel when distressed,
And go to Him for comfort
When you're lonely and oppressed-
For God is our encouragement
In trouble and in trials,
And in suffering and in sorrow
He will turn our tears to smiles.
