Where Hope is Held

Is there hardship, despair?

Does life seem beyond hope?

Do struggles keep growing?

At the end of your rope?

When we find our own end,

and have no more to give,

this is where we find God,

who raises us to live.

Mighty Deliverer,

the Granter of true strength;

Designer of our days,

Who determines their length.

May we all rest assured,

and place all hope in Him.

He is our Warrior,

Who will lead us to win.

For true victory comes,

not from treasures on earth;

but in our held promise,

received at second birth.

(Responding to 2 Corinthians 1:8-10)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are alive and active and always by our side.  Thank You that though we often find ourselves in situations or circumstances too weighty and difficult for us to take on in our own strength, with You, we have help and hope to overcome even the seemingly impossible.  Forgive us for being slow to turn to You and may we be dependant on You in all things and at all times.  May the help and hope that You provide be shared as an encouragement to those in need of You in such a way, that they are drawn into a lasting relationship with You.  All honor and glory to You, God.  Amen.
