Victim or Victory
Are you a victim?
When trials oppress you
When stress overwhelms
When your health lays you low day by day.
When life’s not fair and you battle the fear
That consumes your faith when you pray.
Do you wallow in pity?
A victim laid low
A fist raised in anger and rage
Do you cry out ‘why me’?
Blame God and not see
The lesson God wrote on life’s page
Don’t be a victim
Don’t turn away
From the strength to be gained in the trial
Put your trust in the Lord and He will guide
To go the extra mile
As children of God we must learn to grow
Like students in the school of life
And in heartbreak or joy
We must learn to deploy
The strategies taught thru the strife
Our father knows best
He will not let the test
Break the reed or put out the flame
He will use every tear
Every hurt, every fear
To strengthen our faith when oppressed.
So learn from your heartache
Learn from the pain
Study the battle and strife
Turn victim to victory
And soon you will see
The grace of the Lord in your life.
Isa 42:3 1Pe 1:6
