Peace At Such A Time

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As I embark on this new journey,
I know I’ll never walk alone.
Though this path is not my choosing,
My life is not my own.
I’m created for a purpose;
God’s called me to his field,
And I’ll see his will unfolding
When I walk in truth and yield.

Though I can’t see beyond today,
I walk the path ahead by faith.
His watering wells of hope are mine;
He gives me peace at such a time.

As I look back on paths I’ve travelled,
I see God’s hand upon my life.
He has brought me through dark valleys;
His word my guiding light.
I don’t need to know the reason
God’s brought me to this place.
I’m just called to be a witness
To his glory and his grace.

Though I can’t see beyond today,
I walk the path ahead by faith.
His watering wells of hope are mine;
He gives me peace at such a time.
Peace at such a time.

Ezra 4:17 Then sent the king an answer unto Rehum the chancellor, and to Shimshai the scribe, and to the rest of their companions that dwell in Samaria, and unto the rest beyond the river, Peace, and at such a time.

Isaiah 12:3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.

This song was written for my friend, 'Hope.' Getting to know Hope has been one of the blessings I've received through blogging. Her first blog, Watering Wells Of Hope, is a wonderful testimony of how God has worked in her life and used her during a difficult trial, to be a witness of his amazing grace. I look forward to one day seeing this story become a book, as I know that Hope has a message that will be a great encouragement to all who read it.
Her second blog is called This Is The Day. This is a quote from the sidebar,"As the turmoils of the world surround us ... with GOD there is HOPE and each day can bring rejoicing as we seek Him in it." This is the theme of Hopes writing, and I believe, her life. No matter what comes in this life, we can have joy, because our HOPE is in HIM. Hope has just set out on a new journey; another fiery trial, and as always, her focus is on the Lord, and what he would have her to do during this time to bring glory and honor to his name.
