When I'm Down

By: Jeffrey Pollock

How much I need the Grace of God,
To pick me up when I fall behind;
How much I need the Word of God,
To strengthen my heart & renew my mind.


How much I need the Peace of Christ,
To lift me up when my faith is small;
How much I need the Truth of Christ,
To strengthen my heart burdened by the Fall.


How much I need the Hope of Heaven,
To raise me up with Resurrection power;
How much I need the Life of Heaven,
To strengthen my heart in today's hour.


My Father, how much I need Your Spirit
To carry me up off this heathen ground;
How much I need You, Holy Spirit,
To strengthen my heart when I'm down


"Sometimes God lets you hit rock bottom so that you will discover that He is The Rock at the bottom." ~ Unknown


And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most

gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in

infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

(2 Cor. 12:9-10)
