“But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” In order to stay on the high road with Christ, I can’t listen to the many voices clamoring for my attention, trying to divert me to another path. Jesus has called me to walk ever so close with Him, soaking in His presence, living in His peace. This is His unique design for me, planned before the world began.
So what this is saying is that it takes all kinds of people to live in this world.
I will call on Your name and search round for Your face
For this walk that we’ve shared no one else can replace.
Oh I’m so tired
Of the load I carry
Yes I’m so tired
Of this world of sin
Oh, the angels
In the kingdom are beckoning
Saying, weary soul come in
I, I’m coming Lord
Yes I’m trusting
Trusting in Your word
Oh just keep me
From the path
Path of sin
Hide me in your love.
Wake me up, GOD!
Feel strong in your walk, for this time you should take
The lesson at hand, from decisions you make
And lift them up high, through all this you’ll learn
When struggles are here, where else can you turn
God leads His dear children along. Some thru the waters, some thru the flood, Some thru the fire, but all thru the blood; Some thru great sorrow, but God gives a song, In the night season, and all the day long.
‘T’is no place for gloomy Christians to abide, For my soul is filled with music and my heart with great delight, And I’m living on the hallelujah side.
