“Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing|
that the same sufferings are experienced by your
brotherhood in the world.”
(1 Peter 5:9)
Lean On Me
Whose voice are you listening to?
Is it the one who whispers “give up,”
in struggles too difficult for you?
Or will you choose to surrender to Me,
trusting the One who loves you
and brings new life;
yes, even in the most difficult of times?
Resist the wiley one who insists, “Give up!”
My voice continues to call, “Follow Me,”
Giver of all good and hope.
For you are Mine, My beloved.
I will never abandon you.
In the severest of trials,
I am still with you.
