Lord, there’s a lot of countin’ goin’ on
It seems to start at the crack of dawn
The various trials that are counted as joy
Produce much patience as I must endure
I’m not smart as that certain patent clerk
But I know to let patience have its perfect work
That in these times of many, many trials
I’ll be perfect and complete all the while
Lord, there’s still a lot of countin’ to do
But I am going to trust wholly in You
Give me wisdom until this day is gone
‘Cause there’s a whole lot of countin’ goin’ on
Brothers and Sisters,
As I am in the midst of Category 5 hurricane of troubles and trials, I have been praying. The Lord reminded me to read James 1:2-5. As I read this several times the title of this poem kept running through my mind.
So here it is in its simple perfection, another blessing from the Lord. I hope you enjoy and I hope it is catchy enough to remember when you find yourself with a whole lot of countin’ goin’ on.
God bless and keep serving.

My name is Czarina, I'm Chris Coutts' wife. I would like to ask everyone to pray for my husband. He is deployed at the moment but he still continues to communicate with me through email and he has been telling me that he is having some problems with his knee and infact it is swelling pretty good that the Doc is putting him on an MRI appointment. He said that he is really hurting. I ask for your prayers for his healing. I wont lie to you, I am a little worried. God Bless you all and Thank you so much. Take care.....In Christ Love, Czarina.
Dear Christian and Czarina,
You both are in my prayers tonight. Czarina, I pray that God puts a hedge around you and your family while your hubby is serving his country. Christian, I pray for God's healing on your knee, I also pray for a hedge of protection around you as you serve our country. I pray that the Lord will lift you both up and give you strength, courage, and encouragement right now.
Christian I am so proud of you and all others who continue to serve our country- God bless you both! Keep me updated on the knee- I think Christian has my email address.
Love in Christ! Danette Kettwich
