~When I~

"When I am down, He lifts me up. When I am sad, He makes me glad. When I feel lonely, He covers me with His love. When I feel like know one cares, He is always there."

Here lately the devil has really been fighting me and I can't take much more, so it seems. I know in times like this, God is there for me. Sometimes it doesn't seem that way, but I know deep down that it is. God always brings a certain song to my mind, when I feel this way.

Jesus is all the world to me: My life, my joy, my all.
He is my strength, from day to day; without Him I would fall.
When I am sad, to Him I go; No other one can cheer me so.
When I am sad, He makes me glad. He's my Friend.

Jesus is all the world to me, My Friend in trials sore.
I go to Him for blessings, and He gives them o'er and o'er.
He sends the sunshine and the rain; He sends the harvest's golden grain:
Sunshine and rain, harvest of grain. He's my Friend.

Jesus is all the world to me, And true to Him I'll be.
Oh, how could I this Friend deny, when He's so true to me?
Following Him I know I'm right. He watches o'er me day and night.
Following Him by day and night, He's my Friend.

Jesus is all the world to me; I want no better friend.
I trust Him now; I'll trust Him when, Life's fleeting days shall end.
Beautiful life with such a Friend; Beautiful life that has no end.
Eternal life, eternal joy, He's my Friend.

My prayer is to be more like Him, and to trust Him for everything, no matter how rough life may get. Please just pray for me.

Hi Becky. I am praying for you. When we have struggles it is so good to know others care. The 23rd Psalm is a good scripture to read when you are feeling down. I hope things look up soon. Love Gale

Thanks! I had fun doing it but I'm glad the hard part is over. That wall took me forever it seemed. Hope that things are looking up for you again. Take it as a sign that you're exactly where God wants you. And exactly where the devil doesn't. That's always a good place even if it doesn't feel like it.
