Fight You

_DSC7260n2

Here I am in the dark night of the soul
Here I am in the blackness of depression
Here I am and I tried to run away
Here I am and a like a rebel tried to take control

But I don’t want to fight you tonight
I just want to follow and let you take the lead
So I’m not gonna fight you tonight
Instead I’m gonna trust you and let you carry me

Here I am in the dark night of temptation
But I remember that you will never tempt me
There you are the rock of my salvation
There you are and you never leave, so Jesus carry me

So I don’t want to fight you tonight
I just want to follow and let you take the lead
No I’m not gonna fight you tonight
Instead I’m gonna trust you and let you carry me

The light of the world is Jesus
The light of the world is Jesus
No one cares for me like Jesus
No one thrills my soul like Jesus

In Times of Crisis, I Will Remember…

“First, God brought me here;

It is by His will that I am in this difficult place

…in that I will rest.

Second, God will keep me here in His love,

And give me grace in this trial

…to behave as His child.

Third, God will make this trial a blessing,

Teaching me the lessons He intends me to learn

…and working in me the grace He means to bestow.

Fourth, in God’s good time,

He can bring me out again

…how and when He knows.

So, I am here:

…by God’s appointment

…in His keeping

…under His authority

…for His time.”
