And when I’m feeling bound up,
when my spirit’s tied up in knots
You promised to be my deliverer
and to capture all my thoughts.
And when I’m feeling confused,
when my mind wanders about
You promised to be my counselor
and to rid me of all my doubt.
And when I’m feeling like a failure,
when my life is but a mess
You promised I’d be an overcomer
and to help me to onward press.
And when I’m feeling fearful,
when anxiety has me in a stew
You promised me Your power
and a mind that is sound too.
And when I’m feeling lonesome,
when no one else comes into my day
You promised to be my forever Friend
and my companion along the way.
Lord, when the day comes to an end,
when darkness captures the night
You promised to be my lamp . . .
and Your Word to be my light!
2 Peter 1:4
King James Version
“Whereby are given unto us
and precious promises:
that by these ye might
be partakers of the divine nature,
having escaped the corruption
that is in the world through lust.”
Deborah Ann Belka
