Help in Trouble

From Psalm 46:1-3:  “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult.”

Drowning in sinfulness

Darkness covers this land

Needing help in trouble

God reaches out His hand


Facing our transgressions

Mighty hand bringing grace

Saving us, all alone

God tapping life’s backspace


Sending love through His Son

Refuge found in one cross

Squashing dark’s empty hope

God triggers evil’s loss


Leaning on His wisdom

Strength flows from His power

Living with righteousness

God rebuilds faith’s tower


Knowing we walk with Him

Lord’s armor covers thee

Praying in Christ’s spirit

God’s mercy sets us free

From Ephesians 6:13:  Therefore take up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand on the evil day and, having prevailed against everything, to stand firm.”
