Trying Times

Trying Times

O LORD, we have such need of Thee
in these most turbulent times
Our hearts are full and heavy
as we observe these signs of the times.
What can we do except turn to Thee
in these dire times of need
Your Word and Promises sustain us
as we look to You to proceed.

Our world is fraught with turmoil
both within and without
And only by looking to Thee for help
can we remain devout...
To the work You have called us to
may we look to You to receive
All the help we will ever need
is available as we believe.

(c)2015 Karen Langford Brown

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many
kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops
perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may
be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks
wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without
finding fault, and it will be given to him." James 1:2-5 NIV
