Unfolding the Rose
listen to the MP3 recording of "Unfolding the Rose":
It is only a tiny rosebud, a flower of God's design.
But I cannot unfold the petals with these clumsy hands of mine.
And the secret of unfolding flowers is not known to such as I.
God opens this flower so sweetly, when in my hands they fade and die.
If I cannot unfold a rosebud, this flower of God's design,
Then how can I think I have wisdom to unfold this life of mine?
So I'll trust in Him for leading each moment of every day.
I will look to Him for His guidance each step of the pilgrim way.
The pathway that lies before me, only my Heavenly Father knows.
I'll trust Him to unfold the moments, just as He unfolds the rose.

In Times Like These
listen to the MP3 recording of "In Times like These":
Help me in times like these
To braver be;
Trusting each trying day,
For strength from Thee.
Help me to keep my faith
When funds are low;
Guide me to wisely plan
The way to go.
Help me to learn to smile
Beneath the load;
And lift some struggling one
Along the road.
Help me to walk by faith,
And not by sight,
Knowing in God's good time,
All will be right.
