From the words of American pastor and Christian teacher, Charles Stanley:  “When we trust God to provide the stamina for the work He calls us to do, we are clothed in power.”

Walking these roads for so long

Sin short-circuits dusty steps

Trust’s gauge running on empty

Darkness knocking at doorstep


Facing life’s tall shortcomings

Empty promises sell short

Holy Spirit calling now

Time to seek Father’s support


Hearing faithful promises

His Spirit brings fortitude

Truly believe, seeking Him

Bread of Life, God’s daily food


Turning to Jesus Christ

Living water quenches thirst

Savior clothes with grace-filled love

His promises, always first


Strengthening life’s weaknesses

Holy promises bring light

Eyes open, hearts enlightened

New life trusts in Father’s might

From Luke 24:49:  “And see, I am sending upon you what my Father promised; so stay here in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”
