Our help in time of need

Is effectively dispatched by the Lord;

Where seemingly impossible situations

Are miraculously restored.

Do we believe that God hears us

When our petitions are sent to Him?

Or do we doubt and wonder if He’s real

When our cup is filled to the brim?

As our head rests on our pillow

Do we ponder the meaning of life?

Are we in wonder and awe or are we frightened

In case there is an after-life?

Do we lie awake at night

And think about the injustice?

Or are we content with our lot in life

Where peace and joy is in our midst?

Do we have a void inside

And wonder what life is about?

Are we overwhelmed with situations

With feelings of self-pity and doubt?

As we implode with our frustrations

We can easily blame God indeed,

But it’s wiser to cry out for mercy

So He can truly intercede.

It’s normal to have doubt and fear

But abnormal to dwell with same,

Since we’re given the faith and the hope

So these strongholds do not remain.

Fear is debilitating

Along with unbelief,

And unless we use the tools God provides

We’ll never find true relief.

God is truly our best friend

Our comforter, rock and refuge,

But we forfeit His blessings and His promises

When our stubborn hearts refuse.

When biblical truth is rejected

We naturally turn to philosophies,

Or religions based on good deeds and merit

So our conscience can be appeased.

But our pride levels are dangerous

And we’re truly unaware of same,

When we pretend that all is merry

When from biblical truths we refrain.

God adores us and gave us Christ

To appease His wrathful way,

And the fact that Jesus died a horrific death

Shows the extent of the price that was paid.

God listens to our prayers;

Our supplications and to our pain,

And although sometimes it appears He doesn’t

The facts will still remain.

Only a holy God can eradicate our sins

And it’s something we desperately need,

As our soul requires a regeneration

Where only God can intercede.

Let’s rejoice that He’s a loving Father

And let’s surrender all to Him,

And exercise our spiritual muscles

With all the promises this brings.
