In Weakness

In Weakness

When you're on the mountaintop
it's effortless to shout,
but often in the valley
your mind begins to doubt.

Learn a lesson in the bible
from the Apostle Paul...
he didn't wait for sunshine
in order to stand tall.

In every circumstance he faced
Paul learned to be content,
whether living in abundance
or without a single cent!

He discovered in weakness
In Christ he'd be strong,
and in negative conditions
he'd sing a victory song!

He knew that in the darkness
Christ would be the light...
Paul rested in assurance
no matter what his plight!

All his greatest teachings
came through adversity...
he left behind a treasure
and gave to us the key! (c)

My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
