In My Weakness

When you’re lost in a sea of indifference,
When you’re drowning, but nobody cares,
When it seems all is lost, though you’ve paid the high cost
And you can’t pierce the ceiling with prayers;
When you’re standing for right ~ but alone in your fight ~
When your heart is breaking in two;
Dear friend, just recall the sparrows that fall ~
He really does care for you.

Sometimes in losing, we win more,
And sometimes the battle’s not o’er;
Sometimes the struggle brings forth the strength
To raise us up where eagles soar.
When we have reached the high places
And we gaze at the valley below
The tapestry woven, will look from above
Like it never could from here below.

God does have a plan and a purpose,
And things never happen by chance;
What you see through the lens with study
Is not just the same as a glance.
So when troubles and trials beset you,
Hold on! And study with care!
And you’ll find the trace of His finger -
You’ll know he is answering prayer!

It is not just the present and past He can see -
And it’s not just the loss or the win;
But He sees beyond and He sees results -
He knows how the twig turns and bends.
I like to think that each twist and turn
In this gnarled old bark of mine,
Drove my roots deeper still, seeking guidance until
They’re forever entwined in Thine!
