When life rains on our parade it is our choice to allow it to cloud our day, steal our joy, and sour our outlook for the future; or we can place all in God’s hands and allow Him to bring comfort and peace and joy into every situation we face. God is in control and He is good. It is always the right time to rest in His care wrapped in His embrace.
Wrapped in His Embrace
Sweet comforts of joy fill up and overflow,
With healthy life-giving strength, to the well-loved soul.
The day’s new light closes yesterday’s door;
Another day to offer in service to the Lord.
Makeshift plans are laid aside,
So God’s purpose can arrive.
The heart sings even in the rain,
For in God’s sunshine it remains.
Joy has some friends that desire to stay,
The wise will not turn them away.
Peace and contentment along with trust, faith, and rest,
Are sent by the most-loving Father who plans for your best.
Make room for them; wisdom and direction is ready to speak,
Giving the assurance that you seek.
Love and rejoice and allow God’s helpers to assist.
At their direction and ministration do not resist.
Allow the Comforter to wrap you in His embrace.
This is a gift of love provided by God’s mercy and grace.
The eternal God is thy refuge,
and underneath are the everlasting arms:
and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee;
and shall say, Destroy them.
