July 26, Today’s thought — When is the Time to Trust?

When the Farmer isn’t gardening, weeding, or watering;
you might find him here.

Good Morning

What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.  Psalm 56:3

When is the time to trust?
Is it when all is calm,
When waves the victor’s palm,
Of joy and praise!
Nay! but the time to trust
Is when the waves beat high,
When storm clouds fill the sky,
And prayer is one long cry,
O help and save!

When is the time to trust?
Is it when friends are true?
It is when comforts woo,
And in all we say and do
We meet but praise?
Nay! but the time to trust
Is when we stand alone,
And summer birds have flown,
And every prop is gone,
All else but God.

What is the time to trust?
It is some future day,
When you have tried your way,
And learned to trust and pray
By bitter woe?
Nay! but the time to trust
Is in this moment’s need,
Poor, broken, bruised reed!
Poor, troubled soul, make speed
To trust thy God.

What is the time trust?
Is it when hopes beat high,
When sunshine gilds the sky,
And joy and ecstasy
Fill all the heart?
Nay! but the time to trust
Is when our joy is fled.
When sorrow bows the heard,
All else but God. Selected.

Trust God for your day . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
