"Rough Beginnings"




Equipped for every good work,
accompanied down life's way,
even in rough beginnings
  God is with you every day. 
Hebrews 13:21

What if your plans and efforts
should not produce what you desire,
could it be this "failure" is a step
on a path that leads you higher?

And if the path He takes you down,
as you follow in His stride,
should lead you through a valley dark,
          rest assured, He has not lied.           
Psalm 23:4

For He said, "I'll never leave you"
He has promised to provide,
all that pertains to life and godliness,
                        as you in Him abide.                        
1 Peter 1:13

Underneath His pinions
refuge you may seek,
for He says His strength's perfected
    in those who realize they're weak   
Psalm 91: 4.

So bow the knee and thank Him,
place your shoulder to the plow,
the victory lies in knowing Him,
        His grace will show you how.        
Titus 2:11-12
