Discouragement

How do you meet discouragement? If we wonder sometimes if God is there, look to Paul’s words in 2Russian soldiers preparing for the Battle of Kursk July 1943 Thessalonians and know that our Father is still by our side.

“Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.”              2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

At times we need what is right in front of us but we either don’t see it or fail to reach for it. Our discouragement matters to God. Take it to Him. Allow Jesus to reveal Himself to you.

Eternal Father, Strong to Save

Psalm 107:30-31 “Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven. Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man!”

Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bidst the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep;
O, hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea!

Christ, the Lord of hill and plain,
O’er which our traffic runs amain,
By mountain pass or valley low,
Wherever Lord our brethren go,
Protect them by Thy guarding hand
From every peril on the land!

O Spirit Whom the Father sent
To spread abroad the firmament,
O Wind of Heaven, by Thy might
Save all who dare the eagle’s flight,
And keep them by Thy watchful care
From every peril in the air!

O Trinity of love and power!
Our brethren shield in danger’s hour;
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect them whereso’er they go.
Thus evermore shall rise to Thee,
Glad praise from air, and land, and sea!
