Refuse to be Discouraged!
“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” – Isaiah 41:10
I Refuse to Be Discouraged
I refuse to be discouraged, To be sad, or to cry;
I refuse to be down-hearted, And here’s the reason why:
I have a God who is mighty- Who’s sovereign and supreme;
I have a God Who loves me, And I am on His team.
He is all-wise and powerful- Jehovah 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 “God of Jacob” 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 circumstance; To Heaven’s throne above;
My prayers have reached the heart of God and I’m resting in His love.
I give thanks in everything; My eyes are on his face;
The Battle’s His, the victory’s mine; He’ll help me win the race!
