In Times of Trouble

In times of trouble a child of God may say

"I am here by God's appointment"

He brought me here.
It is by His will I am in this difficult place;
In that I will rest.

"My soul waiteth for the Lord...
for with the Lord there is mercy,
and with Him is plenteous redemption."
(Psalm 130:6-7)

Holding Hands by Danny Hahlbohm
Holding Hands


"I am in His Care"


He will keep me in His love
and give me all that I need in this trial
to behave as His child.

Fear thou not;
for I am with thee:
be not dismayed;
for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee;
yea, I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee
with the right hand
of my righteousness.
(Isaiah 41:10)

"I am under His training"



He will make the testing a blessing,
teaching me the lessons He intends for me to learn,
and working in me the grace He intends to give.

"Blessed is the man that endureth temptation:
for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life,
which the Lord hath promised to them that love Him"
(James 1:12)

"Call upon me in the day of trouble:
I will deliver thee,
and thou shalt glorify Me.
(Psalm 50:15)


"I am here for His purpose"

In His time He will bring me through.
He will not abandon me.
Calming The Storm by Larry Weingartner
Calming The Storm


"And we know that all things
work together for good
to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose."
(Romans 8:28)

"He will make the testing a blessing,

This really hit me today. It fits in (at least in my mind) with a lesson I am learning right now in regards to the anger I am dealing with. IN the end it matters not what others think I am doing it for Him and through Him and He is faithful to bless. So I must keep Him first.
