In general it seems  - that our laughter
Has gone - and so many people are suffering
Alone - wondering - when will this shut-down ever
Come to an end - and when will  we  smile -  and take
The hand of a friend - Like a cruel joke - that mocks
At the gloom - as the world reels - this way and 
That - from the voices of doom .

But - my dear friends - we must not 
Despair - but let Hope fill  the vacuum -
As we struggle for air - and let the words of 
The Saviour say - ' Peace ' and ' Be  still ' - I have
Never forsaken you - and I never will - I'm in the
Boat with you - in the midst of this storm -
And I'll bring you through safely - as
You travel for home .

And for those who are lonely - let me 
Say this to you - turn your eyes upon Jesus 
Who is Faithful and True - He will not disappoint
You - and He won't let you down - and no matter what
Happens - there's no reason  to frown - for His yoke 
Is easy - and His burden is light - and wherever
We are - He keeps us in His sight .

Yes - our God is mindful of all in His 
Care - and He has promised to be with us
Wherever we are -  and as we  seek first  His 
Kingdom - and His  Righteous ways - He will meet
All our needs - as  we  trust  and obey -  so my
Friends - hold on tightly to the dear Saviour's
Hand - and He'll lead us on safely -
Into His Glorious land .

Yes - there may even be giants and
Perils ahead - but - if God is for us - we
Have nothing to dread - for - He can still part 
The  waters - and He can still make a way - to bring
Us through the troubles - we face -  day  by day -
So - lift your heads up in triumph - and praise
God and sing - then one day - we'll all be 
In Glory with Jesus - our Saviour 
And  King .


Dear friends . I wrote this only a few days ago , in
light of the hardships so many find themselves in 
today . These are indeed  strange and  uncertain
times , but I want us to remember that no matter
what we are going  through in this life, God cares
and is mindful of our struggles and He is with us
in  them . 

Sometimes God allows the trials of our lives to get our 
attention , and I believe this is one such time . But , He 
also wants us to turn to Him and seek His face and His 
help in our time of need .

My prayer  is today , that  many will turn to Him and 
receive His mercy in their lives , and know the peace  
of the Lord in their hearts ...

Many blessings to you all 
In Jesus' name .
