God is Working

God is Working

Perseverance is the fruit, not the cause,

Of my growing in faith and love.

Love is evidence of His work – no pause-

In my life from His throne above.


I can use this Truth to improve praying

About the roots of my problems.

Increase my faith is what I am saying

So that I know He can solve them.


Lord, sustain my usefulness in old age.

Give me a large heart for others

That, in my life, You will take center stage

Thus to help sisters and brothers.


Love through me – there to leverage my trials,

So helping me grow in Your Grace,

Learning how I should suffer denials

Until I see You face to face.
