When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low, and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit -
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you never tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar.
So stick to the fight when your hardest hit-
It is when things go wrong That you must not quit.
When my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. Psalm. 61:2
When you become a Christian, it doesn’t mean that you will live on a perpetual “high”. The Psalmist David went down to the very depths, and so did the Apostle Paul. But in the midst of all circumstances God’s grace, peace, and joy are there. The tears will still come, the pressures will be felt, and so will the temptations. But there is a new dimension, a new direction and a new power in life to face the circumstances in which you live.
David and Paul , in the Bible have given me the example of trusting You, Lord even in the excruciating valleys of life. Like them , I praise You.
Hope to find you all well. Have a wonderful day.
