Count it all joy, no matter the pain.
Count it all joy, remember the gain.
Count on today, not on the past.
Focus on Jesus, the First and the Last.
The Author and Finisher, the One who is able.
The One who walks with you and then sets your table;
Preserving you from enemies like fear and misgiving;
The One who promises that He keeps on giving.
So count it all joy when all happens to you
Cause Jesus, your answer, is in it with you!
(From James 1:2, Psalm 23)
Prayer – Lord when we feel like we are down for the count, help us remember that you are our way up and out. Amen
