"Bitter and Sweet"
Kindle, Saviour, in my heart,
A flame of love divine;
Hear, for mine I trust Thou art,
And sure I would be Thine;
If my soul has felt Thy grace,
If to me Thy name is known;
Why should trifles fill the place
Due to Thyself alone?
'Tis a strange mysterious life
I live from day to day;
Light and darkness, peace and strife,
Bear an alternate sway:
When I think the battle won,
I have to fight it o'er again;
When I say I'm overthrown,
Relief I soon obtain.
Often at the Mercy-seat,
While calling on Thy name,
Swarms of evil thoughts I meet,
Which fill my soul with shame.
Agitated in my mind,
Like a feather in the air,
Can I thus a blessing find?
My soul, can this be pray'r?
But when Christ, my Lord and Friend,
Is pleas'd to show His pow'r
All at once my troubles end,
And I've a golden hour;
Then I see His smiling face,
Feel the pledge of joys to come:
Often, Lord, repeat this grace
Till Thou shalt call me home.
~By John Newton~
A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is
none upon earth that I desire beside thee.
What occupies your mind today? Are your thoughts resting in perfect
peace? Are you resting in the Lord? Have you given to the Lord your
burdens? Oh how important to rest in the Lord and wait patiently for
Him! How important it is to meditate upon God's Word and to give to
God all of our troubles. His grace is sufficient! As we yield to God,
we find His power! As we meditate upon Him, we see that He is in
control. Let us not look upon our current circumstances but rather
upon the Lord who is all powerful-- Who enables us to rise above all!
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that
loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor
height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us
from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
