I was worried and discouraged -
Life had me quite upset.
I was ready to give in and break down,
But a still small voice whispered, "Not yet."
I was reminded of God's love for me;
A gentle assurance brought me hope.
The Lord is not limited by my situations,
And that reminder helped me cope.
His Spirit lives within me,
And I know I have been born again.
Whatever happens to this old world
I know it is still held in His hands.
Yes, He's still got the whole world in His hands,
Though sometimes I may not see;
But Jesus reminds me from His Words of Life
That with those same gentle hands He still holds me.
I need not fear for my tomorrows,
And my past is all but gone,
But when I look toward my future,
His bright promises shine on!
