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)
