For Better or For Worse

This remains a familiar phrase
You hear at weddings these days
As couples say their marriage vows
But has it lost meaning somehow?

The divorce rate continues to rise
Little children, tears in their eyes
Don't understand why parents fight
But want everything to be all right

You may be without a husband or wife
By death or choice, living a single life
In all situations, can you truthfully say
God, for better or worse, have Your way?

Those words are more than wedding vows
But about commitment in the here and now
Trusting God in good times may seem easy
When a crisis comes, are you very uneasy?

What I have learned more and more
God will lead to what He has in store
He is trustworthy in good and bad
I will remain in the grip of His hand

Close to Him is the safe place to be
I am lost when it is all left up to me
In the tough times I will persevere
My final journey does not end here

2 Corinthians 4:16 (Amplified)
Therefore we do not become discouraged (utterly spiritless,
exhausted, and wearied out through fear). Though our outer
man is [progressively] decaying and wasting away, yet our
inner self is being [progressively] renewed day after day.
