I am here in a season of stress,
For myself and my nation as well,
The voices of hope and of doom,
Make it hard the way forward to tell.
The stress has become overwhelming,
My spirit within me is downcast,
Then I turn to the page of God’s promise,
Remembering his righteousness forever does last.
I remember how Peter with courage,
Did step out of the boat in the storm,
Then confidently walked toward Jesus,
Until he looked at the waves with alarm.
Lord Jesus help me to be faithful,
When the storms of this life do rage;
When I am in the midst of life’s stresses,
Help me trust in the words on your page.
C. R. Hill, Jr.
“Your testimonies are righteousness forever;
give me understanding that I may live.”
Psalm 119: 144 ESV
