Author: Unknown I refuse to be discouraged, to be sad, or to cry; I refuse to be downhearted, and here's the reason why: I have a God who's mighty, who's sovereign and supreme; I have a God who loves me, and I am on His team. He is all-wise and powerful, Jesus is His name; Though everything is changeable, my God remains the same. My God knows all that's happening, beginning to the end; His presence is my comfort, He is my dearest Friend. When sickness comes to weaken me, to bring my head down low; I call upon my mighty God, into His arms I go. When circumstances threaten, to rob me of my peace; He draws me close unto His breast, where all my strivings cease. When my heart melts within me, and weakness takes control; He gathers me into His arms, He soothes my heart and soul. The great "I AM" is with me, my life is in His hand; The "Son of the Lord" is my hope, it's in His strength I stand. I refuse to be defeated, my eyes are on my God; He has promised to be with me, as through this life I trod. I'm looking past all my circumstances, to Heaven's throne above; My prayers have reached the heart of God, I'm resting in His love. I give God thanks in everything, my eyes are on His face; The battle's His, the victory mine; He'll help me win the race. I can do all Things through Christ who strengthens me!!!!!! BE BLESSED & KEEP BLESSING OTHERS!
