It is the confident position
That God Almighty reigns.
It is the thorough expectation
That simple faith proclaims.

It is the song in dire places,
That rejoices through the pain.
It is taking hold of graces
And standing in His name.

It is strength and consolation,
To know He’s in control.
It is void of consternation
As it fills the settled soul.

It is power for believers
And a gift from God above.
It conquers the Deceiver
And dances in His love.

By Tom Valles

Psalm 28:7 “The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song. NIV

Your faith speaks volumes in this one, Tom. And today, I needed this reminder. Thank you.

A lovely piece; the 'joy of the Lord is my strength' and it is a necessity for life; too many people lose this joy and fail to understand the significance of its loss; thanks for the great reminder.
