He Is...

(inspired by this quote from Beth Moore*) 
“If we’re willing,
God is our song when we are happy,
our escape when we are tempted,
our hope when we’re despairing,
our joy in tribulation, our strength in weakness,
and our immortality in dying. “
My song when I am happy,
My hope when in despair,
My joy in tribulation,
My cure for every care.
He is my strength in weakness,
My sheltered place to hide;
The One I’ve put my trust in,
And in Whom I abide.
In sorrow, He’s my comfort;
When tempted, my escape.
He’s every hope and blessing;
He’s every breath I take.
And when, in death, I look up,
He then will be my Life.
For He is my Redeemer,
My Savior, Jesus Christ.
I will say of the Lord,
'He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.'

Psalm 91:2 NKJV
