The troubles of life can bring great distress;
The spirit can be overwhelmed under stress.
The heart cries out to God in stirring prayer,
God hears for He will always be there!
The troubles of life must cause us to pray,
The heart learns to cry out without delay!
The soul must find great comfort in God,
Much wisdom is sought from the Lord.
The soul must learn to be still and meditate,
Therein is the secret; to God we supplicate.
From the Word of God comes needed hope,
We find fresh strength that we might cope.
The call to meditate is much needed today;
We can be too busy; It would lead to dismay.
The challenge is to be still and to seek the Lord;
The spirit can be revived by the power of God.
Inspiration: Psalm 143:5
