Braver Because of the Savior

We can have confidence about the future because God protects us like a cherished child of His. Below is a poem I wrote to explain this confidence.

Life can get us down
But we can be found
We can run out of strength
But our rescue is at length

My precious friend
Just try not to overextend
You have what it takes inside
Just brush aside and never hide

Have courage to keep going
And continue your glowing
See things through to the end
God loves you…can you comprehend

You are not what happened to you
Choose His help unlike you used to
Move forward with principle
With God you are invincible

Take courage and be a hero
Exhibit faith in your tomorrow
Take it one day at a time and cope
Never giving up hope

Be empowered with devotion
To handle the commotion
Receive strength and be braver
Because of the Savior you have favor
