Each day’s a little brighter;
I heal a little more.
Each day my Lord stands with me,
Reminds me what I’m living for.
Most days I’m moving forward -
It’s by His grace, alone;
I find the strength to go on
When I’m sitting at His throne.
Some days I suffer setbacks;
Reminded of the loss.
Those days I take my sorrow,
And leave it at the cross.
It’s there my Lord reminds me
That He’s my dearest friend.
And though I feel I’m broken,
I know that I’m complete, in Him.
My healing isn’t finished;
But I can surely say
That with God’s grace and mercy,
I am truly on my way.
“Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way,
consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know
that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.
So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed,
you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.”
James 1:2-4 NLT
