St. Paul Ev. Lutheran Church

405 Emma

Chenoa, Il  61726


July 28, 2021





When you get to the end of your tether and your energy seems to have gone

When you’re weary and wonder whether it’s worthwhile to keep struggling on

When the fire has gone out of your spirit, and your armor has fallen apart,

Let go and let God do the fighting, be still in your heard and your heart.


When the music goes out of the morning and you cannot keep pace with the drum

When the flowers in the garden stop smiling, and the birds do not sing when you come

When the sun never peeps through your window and you look for the rainbow in vain,

Ask someone to help and to heal you, let God take the brunt and the strain.


When you get to the end of your courage and there’s nothing much more you can do,

Try folding your hands for a moment and try letting God’s guidance get through.

Life can’t be altered by worry, stop trying to push it your way,

Just let the Good LORD take over, you’ll find that things change when you pray!
