God prepares me for each day’s troubles,
When my dear enemy hounded me each day,
The smell of blood in his nostrils,
I turned to God and sought safety,
My deepest failure became my sword,
Safety was found in my brokeness,
The battle tide turned as God showed up.
I witnessed God’s awesome power,
I found new strength to see me through,
My dear enemy shaking his puny fist,
Angry words making his wisdom foolishness,
Tripping up on his own confused lying,
It all became perfectly clear to me,
My voice found the right words again,
So that truth could be heard,
The darkness quickly giving way to light.
Now each day brings new promises,
There is no limit to God’s abundance,
I will seek him with all my heart,
And, enjoy the life that comes from God,
This is the truth that I have found,
The lies have no power at all,
Disarmed completely by love,
Peace is found in God’s rest.
