2 Chronicles 20:12 “… neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee”

1 Corinthians 10:13 “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make an escape that ye may be able to bear it.”

This Time
By: Heather Michelle Green

This time there doesn’t seem to be a way out.

Everywhere I turn I am faced with fears, doubts.

I’m tempted to be full of that pointless pride

And allow my foolish conscious to be my guide.

It seems I am stuck between a rock and a hard place

As I get caught in this rut in life’s relentless race.

Once again, I know not where to turn or what to do,

But this time, Lord, my eyes are upon You.

For You promised to always provide an escape route,

And although that path is rarely the “easy way out,”

God is faithful and just to keep His precious promise

That He would never leave us nor forsake us.

Yes, His way can be rough, but the burden is light-

So I must press on toward the mark and fight.

And with God’s grace, I’ll make it through this trial,

Praising His name for this lesson learned all the while.
