A Rose in the Rain

When facing difficulties… And for any men reading this, you could be compared to a hickory or oak tree, some of the strongest woods to weather storms…

Beloved, to God, you are His rose in the rain;
and don’t ever think He doesn’t feel your pain.
Trials aren’t sent to us by the Lord—
no, they’re deep rivers that He alone helps us ford.

The thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy,
but we’ve got God’s Word to foil the thief’s ploy.
God’s promises are sure—He never has lied;
and the desire of your heart will surely be supplied!

With our eyes on God’s Word, we persevere;
we know this fulfillment is already here!
For faith says right now what isn’t seen with our eyes,
because we know that our God has heard our hearts’ cries.

A rose in the rain, but you’re hardy and strong—
you trust in God’s Word and in Him to Whom you belong.
There’s an answer in God for every problem we face;
so we thank You, Heavenly Father, for the answer by Your grace.

P. A. Oltrogge

“The righteous cry and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted, and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.” Psalm 34:17-19 NASB

“Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
Ephesians 6:10-12 NASB
