When I Can’t Do It

As we face life each day, we need strength from above. We need the Lord to guide us, to direct our paths, to show us the way – His way …..

When I JUST can’t seem to do it Lord
I know that You can – in me
I thank You that all the things I lack
In YOU, O Lord, I see

As I journey along this heavenly path
No matter what test I face
It’s not about might, nor even power
But patiently running the race

I look at You and it’s possible
New faith begins to rise!
Then I reflect and wonder why
I looked through earthly eyes

Deep down in me, my heart says, “Yes”
When flesh would rather say, “No”
At times You want me, Lord, to wait
When it seems I’m raring to go

I thank You Lord for love that sees
Beyond this fleshly veil
When it seems I can’t, in You I can
Through love that never fails

Lord, Hold My Hand

A short prayer poem for any going through the challenge of illness. God bless you …

Soothe every storm
Calm every fear
When the news is not good
Not what I want to hear.

When the figures are high
And my feelings are low
O help me, dear Jesus
Let faith in me grow.

Your word, precious Lord
Is a lamp to my feet
Your word is alive
Full of power, not defeat.

There’s nothing impossible
Saviour, with You
The miracles of yesterday
You can still do.

YOU are the Lord ~
Who heals my disease
O send forth Your power
Bring a release.

I’m trusting in You
On Your promise I stand
O help me, dear Jesus
Lord, hold my hand.
