Psalm 84:11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing will He withhold from them whose walk is blameless.
The path I have travelled has been ever so steep; there is no way of seeing just what is ahead with this bend in the road now right in my face.
I am weary, yet feel strong and sustained, I long to sit down and rest for a spell but I know I am held ever so close to my Master’s breast.
My heart does not pound from the journey; in fact, I am strangely refreshed.
It is my Lord who has given my feet a firm and broad place to stand. He upholds me and teaches me to lean into Him and not try to make the climb alone.
‘Tis but a bend in the road this place I am at. It seems to be getting darker and I cannot see my way,
but when I look at my Master’s Face, I see the light shining at my feet.
A circle of light, a dawning of love that encompasses Him and me. There is light sufficient for each step that I take.
There are sorrows in the night but soon the Morning Star will be dawning. So many memories of the difficult climb have been erased;
in their place are a joy and satisfaction and wonder at the works that God has wrought.
So, ’tis but a bend in the road this place I am at.
Weary, forlorn, it is such a comfort to know my Master has walked this road before. I am not alone. I have not been forsaken.
‘Tis but a bend in the road ahead and it has been a climb, with small and great obstacles to overcome.
The Blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony have enabled me to overcome. Never has it been my own strength; but the Master’s, always infusing me,
encouraging me and being the Lifter of my head as I gaze into His glorious Face.
The Lord says He will never forsake me; He will be my Helper in times of troubles.
My faith pleases Him and while one part of my heart feels broken, there is within me a stronger desire to please God.
God, the One who has given all for me that I might live a rich and abundant life in His Son.
How now, do I walk through this dark night with a faith that pleases and blesses God?
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
