Strength to Carry On

by
Sarah Elizabeth Itterman
Lord, give me the strength to carry on
When life is filled with circumstances I cannot control
While doubts and worries overwhelm the soul
Help me to trust in Your perfect plan for me
And though I may never in this world understand in full
I know in heaven all will be revealed eventually
 
Lord, give me the strength to carry on
When a chapter in my life is done
Knowing that yet another must be begun
Perhaps it is the struggle of the unknowns going forward
However it is for Your Glory I am on this path heavenward
 
Lord, give me the strength to carry on
When in times of weakness I am tempted to despair
During seasons of hopelessness and inner grief
Continually laden with heavy burdens of care
For only You can bring the sweet peace of relief
 
Lord, give me the strength to carry on
When dreams for the future are destroyed
“Be still my soul”, a voice within reassures my heart,
“He has a greater purpose, He will restore this dark void
Let Him finish what He has intended from the start"
 
Lord, give me the strength to carry on
When for Your sake I am asked to give everything
Remembering to take up my cross daily
Despite the fear, pain and long suffering
Give me the courage to stand firm to the end faithfully
 
Lord, thank you for giving me the strength to carry on
When in every moment I knew You were near
Reminding me always of the blessed promise dear
“My grace is sufficient for thee”
I will forever praise You throughout eternity
