God is with me and gives the strength I need;
With His help I overcome and succeed.
There have been many storms through the years,
But I get to the shore safely when He steers.

Tears flow freely when grief takes its toll,
But God is the comforter of my soul.
Though many loved ones have passed away,
My Father is with me now and every day.

Satan loves to throw many darts at me.
As he taunts me he laughs with glee.
"Hmph, Godís not going to forgive you of sin.
Youíre so bad and now Iím going to win."

My Saviorís blood will cleanse and atone.
Jesus can save me, Heís the only one.
So Satan I will not believe your lies.
My God loves me and He hears my cries.

God keeps His promises of that Iím sure.
Each heartache and trial Heíll help me endure.
Iíll be saved through His mercy and grace,
Win the crown of life when I finish the race.

Good writing and theme! I have heard the saying that when Satan reminds you of your past, you just remind him of his! future.

You know, I really like this. It has such a sincere honest presentation (voice) that it is endearing. It really ministered to me bcause the "piece" was not trying to be more than it was. Very good. God bless.
