Trials

I wrote this while I am sick in bed with a cold that went straight to my chest. I have to stay in my room because I have asthma and a cold like this makes me allergic to all the dogs and other animals we have as well as the weather outside. Normally my system has built up a tolerance for our hairy brood but the infection has made my lungs super sensitive to them and the humidity in the air. The air conditioner located in my room, set to a cool 68 degrees and a battery of drugs makes it much easier for me to breath until I can fight off this cold. So the way I see it is. I could feel sorry for myself and cry which just makes me even more stuffed up or I could focus on the Lord instead. I chose the latter.

Psalm 100 vs 4
Enter His gates with thanksgiving
And His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him, bless His name

Trials

When I was hurting Jesus, you were there for me
You were the friend, I could never be
On the occasion I lied
You were the court, in which I could never be tried
For on You was pinned, all of my sins
Where I end You begin
On the nights, that were the blackest black
You were the light that led me back
Before You I never really knew, the meaning of joy
That’s not dependent on people,money,success or toys
In the past people branded me disabled, defunct
You gave me courage to throw out those labels as junk
Your spirit empowered me to live, laugh and love
while You guide my journey from the heavens above
Difficulties sometimes, are the tools that You use for my gain
You lead me through the fire, forever changed
Rebuilt by Your love, I am the picture of Your grace
I deserved death but instead You embrace
All that I was, all that I am and all that I will be
So I can lead others to You, for a chance to be free
From all of their sorrow, guilt, grief, and pain
To believe in the Lord while the time still remains
