His song is especially beautiful during the fierce trials of life.

“So if you find life difficult because you’re doing what God said, take it in stride. Trust him. He knows what he’s doing, and he’ll keep on doing it.” ~ 1 Peter 4:19, MSG

Lord, the trials of life are great, but You, O Lord, are greater! You are mighty in power, strong in deliverance. You are faithful to carry Your child across the turbulent waters.

How wonderful is this knowledge!

But knowledge is nothing if we don’t believe it and apply it. It’s so frustrating Lord! Help us get the knowledge of Your greatness deep into our knowers so that when the trials come we stand and face them with confidence and courage.

You did not make us to be shaken by every wave that crashes about us. You made us to be more than conquerors —  victorious against our foes …

Not because of who we are, but because of who You are.

You are in us and we are in You.

We are surrounded by Your mighty power — a great shield to protect and preserve us. We are bathed in Your amazing grace and Your steadfast mercies that are new every morning.

You, Lord, are our song in the night whose melody rises and falls over our weary souls like the refreshing morning dew.

Oh, how wonderful You are Lord. We praise you!

Lord, we choose to submit our sufferings to You knowing that everything that comes our way comes by You first and You will use it for our eternal good.

Be glorified in us. Let Your light shine into our darkness so we might reflect it into a hurting world.

Thank You for Your promises on which we depend.

When we start to waiver and sway with fatigue from the battle, help us stand strong upon the Rock and lean into the wind — the wind of Your glorious Presence — lifting our hands in worship to the One True God, our Father.

We love You Lord and appreciate Your faithfulness. Open our eyes to see You.

In Jesus’ Name I pray,

Amen
