I would have lost heart,
and given up on spiritual things
I would have wasted away
from the troubles, that life brings.
I would have passed out,
and lost my faith and my hope
I would have gone down for the count
and thrown in the rope.
I would have sunk under the pressure,
and let my fears take me down
I would have called it quits
and be willing to sink and drown.
I would have been crushed,
under the weight of my heavy load
I would have gotten lost
on the straight and narrow road.
But, I kept my eyes on Jesus,
and He renewed me day by day
He promised He would lead me
and to show me ~ heaven's way.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though
outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly
we are being renewed day by day. For our
light affliction, which is but for a moment, is
working for us a far more exceeding and
eternal weight of glory, while we do not look
at the things which are seen, but at the
things which are not seen. For the things
which are seen are temporary, but the things
which are not seen are eternal."
