Woman of God ~ Patricia Bankhead



Woman of God
by Patricia Bankhead 

People wonder how you keep smiling
When things are falling apart
They wonder how you can forgive
When someone has broken your heart

People wonder how you can give
When you're down to your last dime
They wonder how you manage
When you give so much of your time

People wonder how you resist
When temptations are all around
They wonder how you keep standing
When problems weigh you down

People wonder how you survive
When you're fighting against the odds
They wonder what's the secret ingredient
When it's because you're a woman of God

I Refuse To Be Discouraged


I Refuse To Be Discouraged

I refuse to be discouraged, To be sad, or to cry;
I refuse to be downhearted, and here’s the reason why:
I have a God who’s mighty, Who’s sovereign and supreme;
I have a God who loves me, and by grace I’m on His team.
He is all-wise and powerful. Jesus is His name;
Though everything is changeable, My God remains the same.
My God knows all that’s happening; Beginning to the end;
His presence is my comfort; He is my dearest Friend.
When sickness comes to weaken me,
To bring my head down low,
I call upon my mighty God; Into His arms I go.
When circumstances threaten to rob me of my peace;
He draws me close unto His breast, Where all my strivings cease.
When my heart melts within me, and weakness takes control;
He gathers me into His arms, He soothes my heart and soul.
The great “I AM” is with me. My life is in His hand.
The “Son of the Lord” is my hope. It’s in His strength I stand.
I refuse to be defeated. My eyes are on my God;
He has promised to be with me, As through this life I trod.
I’m looking past all my circumstances, To Heaven’s throne above;
My prayers have reached the heart of God I’m resting in His love.
I give God thanks in everything. My eyes are on His face;
The battle’s His, the victory mine; He’ll help me win the race.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!!!
