Where is God When...
Where is God when we are happy? Is He joyously celebrating too?
Where is God when we are sad, and life's storms leave us feeling blue?
Where is God when we are angry, lose our temper, maybe come unglued?
Where is God when we are hurting, like our heart has been broken in two?
God is right there with us, it doesn't matter whether we are happy or sad!
God is right there with us, when our heart is broken, or we are fighting mad!
Where is God when we are all alone, and we could really use a friend?
Where is God when death claims a loved one and a life comes to an end?
Where is God when we are stressed, feel like breaking because we can no more bend?
Where is God when we feel lost and confused, will His peace and direction He send?
God is right there with us, He brings to us comfort, companionship, guidance, clarity!
God is right there with us, transitioning lost loved ones to their lives with Him in eternity!
Where is God when we are scared, will He help to put all of our fears to rest?
Where is God when we have failed, even though we have tried our very best?
Where is God when things are going well, and we feel that we are blessed?
Where is God when the enemy attacks, and our lives feel like one big test?
God is right there with us, we must reach for His hand, and to it we must cling!
God is right there with us, blessings, protection, and assurance, a part of His offering!
Where is God when we are quiet, and take time to listen for His voice?
Where is God when we go astray, when we do not make the right choice?
Where is God when we triumph over something, does He too rejoice?
Where is God when we lack confidence, and we waver in our poise?
God is right there with us, if we search our hearts, listen, look, and seek!
God is right there with us, giving peace to the troubled, and strength to the weak!
Sometimes He knows all He need do is walk with us, walking quietly by our sides,
When life's storms become rough, it is those times He carries us through raging tides!
When times are good, it's easy to see the footprints of everywhere God has been,
It's when times become tough, we need to remember His Spirit that dwells within!
We invited Him into our hearts, He remains, even when at times we forget He's here,
We may go astray, or turn our backs on Him completely, but He is faithfully there!
