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