You Can Do It

I walk through the valley alone and afraid
Not knowing what will appear
The shadows surround me and I lose my way
I finally succumb to my fear

I try to escape the darkness and gloom
The sin that has hold on my life
Then I hear you whisper as quiet as dew
My child don’t despair in this night

You can do it with my strength
You can do it through my grace
You can come through this quagmire of life
You can do it with me
As I give you mercy
Don’t despair when your lost in the night

Suddenly light shines around me
The path becomes clear up ahead
Once again I know God walks beside me
I am sure I have nothing to dread
As He speaks

You can do it with my strength
You can do it through my grace
You can come through this quagmire of life
You can do it with me
As I give you mercy
Don’t despair when your lost in the night

Sometimes I get myself into situations that make me cringe. Why did I travel down this road? Why do I get lost in this sin? I brought myself here. Yes, the devil lured me in with His temptations and I succumbed to him, just as Adam and Eve did in the garden. He asks me the same question he asked them on that fateful day. “Did God really say you can’t do that?” When I give any thought to that question, I am in trouble. I know the word well enough to know right and wrong. Yet I walk off the path all too often. I am so glad God is always right thee to bring me back to the path of life. He gives me the strength and the grace to once again walk with Him. Lord, let me stay on this path you have laid out for me! Help me to stay in the light.

Psalm 91:2-3 King James Version (KJV)
2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
