Over Rough Terrain

Over Rough Terrain

We listen to the news, read the newspapers, see what is going on around us with others and all the struggles and worries we face in our own life and we fret and complain, we gripe and blame but it doesn’t have to be that way…Read more.

OVER ROUGH TERRAIN

It seems to me in this old world

there’s too much stress and strain,

too much struggle, too much work

with way too little show of gain;

there’s too much worry, too much woe…

and seems too much I complain

when all I really need to do

to cross this rocky, rough terrain

is hear and follow as God leads

instead of wandering off again

where I stumble, fumble, maybe fall,

and to all my own disdain

when I take what seems an easier way

just to find it wrought with wind and rain

and storms that toss and batter me

until my hope is drained

and days seem dark and foreboding,

filled with sorrows and with pain…

But it wouldn’t have to be this way

if I’d just let Jesus reign,

not just give my worries to Him

and then take them back again;

He would guide my footsteps sure and true

across life’s rough terrain.

I’d need not worry then at all

and have no reason to complain.

He knows the way I need to go,

knows every possible pitfall,

knows the best and safest route to take;

He is God, after all.

He knows each thing I’ll ever need

to face life’s dangers and life’s sorrows

and knows all that I cannot see;

He already sees tomorrow.

He is my all sufficiency.

He is all I’ll ever need.

He will lead me to the mountain top

if I just follow and believe.

He will guide my footsteps sure and true

across life’s rough terrain,

light my path and lead the way

‘til I come home again.

Nicely written and a comfort to know, I’m not the only one who loses heart, all too often! Our God is truly the only strength we need, to come through all this, as a Christian soldier. God Bless!

I always say that no one can’t be too busy to spare some time to someone else be it a relative, a friend or even a neighbour. Thanks for sharing!
