At times people wonder why God “permits” some things;
but, really, we know it’s from Him that all hope springs.
Our adversary is the devil, the scriptures clearly state;
so our faith in God’s Word can determine our fate.
The tenacity of a bulldog with a bone may be required
to see the manifestation of the things we’ve desired.
I will say of the Lord, He is my God in whom I trust–
Voicing God’s Word will give our faith in Him a greater thrust.
In the meantime, we “rest” in that God is faithful and true–
“This I know, that God is for me” applies firmly to you.
Don’t fall for the devil’s lies, giving in to despair–
God knows all your concerns, and He definitely does care.
Faith and patience in many things are often the key–
so say it often, with sure conviction, “Jesus loves me!”
As for God, His way is perfect–you’re never forgotten.
This we know, through faith in the Son, Whom God has begotten.
P. A. Oltrogge
