Full and Running Over

Full and Running Over

The problems of life at times are brutal
Draining our strength, crushing our hope.
We struggle with pain, feeling empty and helpless;
There seems no escape, we’re unable to cope.

These times when we’re weak and bewildered,
Feeling empty and we want to give up,
If we trust in the Lord, our soul is revived
And His grace, love and power refills our cup.

No one is spared all of life’s troubles,
We’ve all had hard times to bear,
But trusting Christ Jesus we’re never alone;
He’s always with us, our burdens to share.

Our hope is renewed and our joy is restored;
The weakness is gone, in Christ Jesus we’re strong.
Lifted up daily by His word and through prayer,
With joy let us praise Him with service and song.

Oh, the great wonders of our Heavenly Father!
Guiding, refreshing us throughout the day.
Of His Almighty arms drawing us close
Throughout life’s journey, each step of the way.

With our cup refilled and running over,
May we reach out in love and share,
With others who need to be lifted up
And be filled with God’s grace and loving care.
