a word of encouragement for those going through hard times, may this lift your spirit :)


Has that trial in your life been going on so long
That everything in you screams, “This is so wrong.”

You can’t understand, it seems God is far away
As with tears you cry out to Him everyday,

If you read God’s Word His truth you will see
That He has a job for you and a job for me,

ONLY BELIEVE! is what He has to say
At His feet this problem you must lay,

In His time and in His way
An answer to your problem will be there one day,

Keep on believing, don’t lose hope
He’ll give you His grace enabling you to cope,

Keep your eyes on Him as to to Him you cleave
He has promised He will never forsake you or leave,

Give Him time to work it all out
The devil just wants you to worry and doubt,

Praising Him is one thing He’s looking for
To bless you is what He has in store,

So no matter what, even when you don’t understand
ONLY BELIEVE! that’s what moves His hand.
