Sometimes it seems . . .
I’m on a roller coaster ride
with all the ups and downs
and twists from side to side.
One day, I’m blissfully joyful,
the next one, I miserably sad
one minute, I’m cheerfully happy
the next one, I’m steaming mad.
One day, the Lord seems close,
the next one, He seems so far away
one minute, I see His light shinning
the next one, it’s hard for the finding.
One day, I feel so very blessed,
the next one, I feel so deeply depressed
one minute, I feel His awesome love
the next one, I feel tight as a glove.
Who’s got control of the switch,
who’s controlling this roller coaster ride?
Lord, I need for You to pull the plug . . .
so that in Your rest ~ I can abide!
1 Peter 5:10
King James Version
“But the God of all grace, who hath called us
unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus,
after that ye have suffered a while,
make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.”
