I'm Thankful For Trials

I'm thankful that trials
Do come my way
For they teach me dependence
Upon God each day.

I know that my own strength
Is never enough
And surely would fail me
When the going is rough.

But Jesus beside me,
His Spirit within,
Can keep me from falling
And cleanse me from sin.

I also have proven
That humbly I must
Seek His enabling
And earnestly trust.

With confidence then,
Knowing He is so near,
I can face my tomorrows
With Him, without fear.
