Instructed by the word of God,
I attempt to please my Lord.
I set out to be His warrior,
defending and living by His word.
Trials arise. Obstacles appear.
Hazy Days make my task unclear.
Enemies strike. Allies betray.
God’s word seems to go astray.
Even then our sinful human eyes
must trust despite Satan’s disguise.
Just because we do not understand
doesn’t mean it’s out of God’s hand.
What seems to be all gone wrong
is somehow God being very strong.
His word does not return void,
no matter how much we’re annoyed.
This is God’s world and God’s way
to give to us a brighter day.
Trust in Him when all seems lost.
No one knows more than Him the cost.
