Christ in it All

In all of life’s emotion,
In every trial or pain;
Turn to Christ again
In still devotion.

In all of life’s successes
And in the failures too,
There is a place for you
To sense His soft caresses.

In all of life’s confusion
With every tough decision,
His love dispels derision
And brings a “hope” transfusion.

In all of life’s declines,
In every fall that comes
There is a blessed One
Who carries us at times.

In all of life’s surrenders,
In every place you’ve failed
A Son for you prevails
And victory He renders.

John 3:35 “The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in his hands.”

I enjoy the way you use Scripture
along with your poem.
