The Way is Tough

The way is tough
the road is hard
I won’t give up
No I won’t!
When my spirit is down cast
I say, “Self
no – you cannot stay here today
there is no way
Think about your blessings
and what God has done
Where is your focus
The enemy is on the prowl
Stand firm and hold your ground
the enemy’s around
Don’t let him in to badger and bash
trying to give many a lash
lift your face
you walk in grace
God is with you
through and through
there is nothing you
can possibly do
or on your own
chin up
fear not
shoulders back
look ahead
get rid of the dread
good will come
God’s promises are true
and now I’m through.”
