When the silence is deafening and
you think you can't stand it any more ...
Listen to your favorite Christian music
or, maybe, turn on a religion channel;
focusing on things that are lovely.
When the nights are so cold
you think you'll never be warm again,
Turn on a heating blanket
and curl up with God's Word.
When legalities become so overwhelming
you feel buried under the load,
Find another way.
(My yoke is easy, my burden light.)
When days are ruff and
you think you can't go on,
Just take it one step at a time.
God requires nothing more of you
than to walk humbly with Him.
When you finally admit that you can't ...
You'll find that, with God, you can.
God must have a lot of faith in you!
