Rejoice in the Lord

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen the chips are down,

planned provisions fail;

rejoice in the Lord,

He who will prevail.

Despite circumstance,

the Lord is still good;

rely not on eyes,

on what’s understood.

For He is our strength,

grants us way to climb;

secures each new step,

He’s present each time.

Rejoice in the Lord,

joy in He who saves;

faithful Provider,

for all of our days.

When hope seems futile,

and darkness surrounds;

give thanks to the Lord,

where true joy is found.

Trust Him to provide,

for each of our needs;

always He’s faithful,

and His plans succeed.

(Responding to Habakkuk 3:17-19)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that no matter how things appear, You are still God, and You are still good. Thank You that You are our strength, and that we may always choose to rejoice in You. Forgive us for allowing our circumstances to steal our joy, and teach us to rejoice in You – who You are – in all things and at all times. Thank You that You secure our footing, even on shaky ground. May our trust in You, even in times of great trial, move seeking souls to the security found in You alone. Help us to rejoice not in our circumstance, but in the eternal hope we have in You. Amen.
