It would be so easy on this Testing-Ground, Lord,
to just sit on the fence of indecision. . .
to become silent, quiet and uncommitted. . .
to wait in mediocrity and indifference. . .
to delay in being lukewarm and tepid. . .
It would be the easiest thing to do,
but my nature is not what it was.
I cannot remain on the fence.
I cannot walk in divided allegiance.
As I stand by Your Side, Lord,
Shelter me. . .
Shelter me in Your Arms
that my perspective of this time
may not be made sightless
by the smog of impossible odds.
Keep within my being
the constant awareness
that even though I cannot see
the total picture of this time
in the scheme of things,
– for now and always –
My faith and trust rest in You, Lord.
My mind is at peace
in the tranquility of Your Presence.
My heart and soul are made calm
in the freedom of Your Abiding Love.
My will is in Your Will.
Assured that I am in Your Will
– even on this Testing-Ground,
I can stand by Your Side
and not be intimidated.
I can stand in the commitment
of a life dedicated to You,
knowing that I am but a vessel
to be shaped,
to be molded,
to be fitted for Your Service. . .
knowing that only after
and the fitting
can I be used in a decisive way. . .
