Sometimes you have to go, when you don’t feel like going, speak when you don’t feel like speaking; pray, when you don’t feel like praying; sing when you don’t feel like singing; trust, when you don’t see how it could ever work out; encourage yourself, when there’s no one else who is willing to do it, hold your head high, when you feel more like crumpling in sorrowful weeping; smile, while you are hiding the emotional upheaval in your life.
Sometimes everyone else reaps the benefits of prayer. Stay encouraged, because Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever; keep moving forward, your answers are on their way. We can’t afford to let down our guard, and become vulnerable to the attacks of Satan. His time is short, and the only power he has, is the power given to him by God, so he can’t overtake us unless God allows it for our good, so I choose to move onward.
I will follow where he leads me,
through the valleys and the hills
I will trust Him for there’s no other
who can all my needs fulfill
In sickness and in health
he’s my strength and my song,
In life’s battles, He’s my shield;
In my weakness, He is strong.
Oh, when all the world’s against me,
my ideas and my plans
I know that he’ll lead me through it, and
Teach me how to stand.
