God, You’ve Been Working

Jesus answered them, "My Father has been working until now,
and I have been working." John 5:17, NKJV

In the shadows of my memory,
I see You working behind the scenes.
Times when I might have battled alone,
You were there, keeping my heart in Your Word,
Defeating evil forces come to take me captive.

In the secret parts of my heart,
I feel new strength growing.
Courage dissolves my fears.
Hope that I thought had died
Has come to life again.

In the normal routine of life,
I see adventures waiting to be had,
Friendships to build and hearts to love,
Opportunities to use,
And truths to discover.

You’ve been working all along.
In the night while I slept,
You protected my soul.
During the day as I walked on Your path,
You guided my steps.

Thank You, God, for Your constant presence.
I will trust You when I can’t see clearly.
I will follow You when I don’t know where the path will lead.
Keep me close to Your heart.
I know You’ve been working all along.

    God has NEVER stopped working in our lives - we have not always seen it

    Thank you, Leigh! Psalm 91 and Psalm 121:4 have always helped me to see God as Protector. Happy adventuring! :)
