The Lord God is my strength and my song;
he has given me victory.
Isaiah 12:2 NLT
How can you go on when you feel like giving up?
How can you face another day if you don’t want to get out of bed?
My power is the answer to your problem of weakness.
You can be stronger than you feel achievable—if you let Me carry you.
You can accomplish everything I ask of you if you rely on My grace.
You can survive harrowing situations if you trust Me.
You can be ready for anything the future holds if you lean hard on Me.
You can be victorious over evil habits if you depend on My Holy Spirit.
You can avoid self-pitying quicksand if you stand on the Rock of Ages.
You can hang in there when you are bone-tired and weary if you pray.
You can persevere until the finish line if you stay focused on the cross.
How can you celebrate when the world is falling apart?
How can you rejoice even in the midst of discouraging circumstances?
My peace is the answer to your problem of woe.
You can be happier than you think possible—if you let Me comfort you.
You can be optimistic about a bright future if you believe My promises.
You can learn to dance for joy even on cloudy days if you follow My lead.
You can have cascading joy in a sad world if you drink of My Spirit.
You can get over singing the blues if you listen to My toe-tapping jazz.
You can know peace in pandemonium if you keep your mind on Me.
How can you find real significance in a society playing trivial pursuit?
How can you make God’s dream for your life come true?
My purpose is the answer to your problem of wandering.
You can be nobler than you deem attainable—if you let Me control you
You can find an exciting reason for living if you honor the King of kings.
You can be resurrected above narcissistic culture if you bury your self.
You can aim for goals death cannot kill if you think vertically.
