“And this will we do, if God permits.”

Hebrews 6:3

We know that life is filled with storms

That come in various ways;

Like sudden, violent storms at sea,

They can descend on us on any day.

One minute the sky is clear and blue;

The next minute lightning fills the air.

And if we’re not careful we’ll be tempted to fear

And give in to panic and despair.

That’s why like a tree we must have strong roots

Which go down so very deep—

For it’s only by being deeply rooted in Grace

That we’ll have strength for the days that we weep.

Yes, being “rooted in Grace” is our greatest need

When difficulties and trials do come;

Only then will we know that our Lord is sufficient

When we don’t know where our problems come from.

Like a mighty oak that rises up high to sky,

So should we be in faith—

For its deep roots keep us strong in the storm,

Even as Jesus keeps us in His sure embrace.

The key to serenity and security in life

Is growing deeper in the Father’s Love;

Only then will we know He’s always there

Through His Spirit He sent from Heaven above.

May today be the day we grow stronger in Grace

By growing deeper in God’s Word;

In so doing we’ll know we’re grounded on a Rock

And assured by the greatest Promises we’ve ever heard.

“Yes, help us grow deeper in You, O Lord,

So we can truly be free—

For it’s when we abide in Christ, the Risen Lord,

That we find all we’ll ever need.”
