Trusting In Jesus
I know, O Lord, though all around is dark,
I need not fear,
Rough are the waves that toss my little bark,
But Thou art near.
The stormy winds Thy word alone fulfill,
Their rage shall cease,
And when Thy voice shall give the charge "Be still,"
All will be peace.
Yes! I shall see (soon as this storm has passed
Across the soul)
That He who slumbers not, held every blast
In His control;
And though, o'ershadowed by the present woe,
The heart may quail,
Strong in the grace, the strength Thou dost bestow,
I shall prevail.
What though long-cherished hopes, like autumn leaves,
All scattered lie,
Knowing Thy love divine, this scarcely grieves,
For spring is nigh;
New hopes, God given, shall then arise and bloom
In beauty bright,
Therefore, in hope rejoicing, 'mid the gloom
I wait for light.
Thou precious Saviour, by whose life I live,
Lighten my eyes!
Let me not miss the lessons Thou dost give,
O make me wise!
Keep me, whilst tempest-driven on life's dark sea,
Close to Thy side,
There, anchored safely by sure hope in Thee,
Let me abide.
Jesus, Thou art my all. What can I lose,
Since Thou art mine?
Guide me, O best Beloved, my portion choose,
For I am Thine.
To the desired haven let me come
In Thine own way;
There will be no more night in that fair home,
But endless day!

A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory,
to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That
Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is
the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love
of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in
us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all
ages, world without end. Amen.
May we ever trust the Lord Jesus-- no matter what the situation. Though
storms may rage in our life, we must let God take control. As we give Him
every burden, we know that He will bear our burdens and will see us safely through every storm in our life. The Christian life is not without difficulty
but as we lean upon the Lord and truly TRUST Him in all things, we find
Him to be EVERYTHING that we need. He is leading us. He is teaching us
and guiding us. By His power, we live. In Him, we live and move and have
our being. To know the love of Christ is the Christian walk. We are learning
more about Him day by day. This world is not easy to live in but we have a
WONDERFUL Savior Who walked the road before us and will guide us every
step of the narrow way! We trust in Jesus-- for our Lord Jesus never fails!
Christ Jesus said in John 14:27:
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
