Run to the Arms of God
by Sindy Nagel
When discouragement beats me down
I run to the arms of God.
He holds my hand and leads me on
Where others have not trod.
He gives new strength to my tired bones
And hope to my weary soul.
He makes me of sound mind again
In Him I now am whole.
He calls me in His righteousness
To bring new sight to the blind
To release those held in prison
If only in their mind.
I will not fear, for I’m redeemed
And called by His new name.
He healed me and transformed me;
I will never be the same.
The road less traveled has its bumps
The sailing sometimes rough
But still I will press on for Him
Because He is enough.
Inspired by the Word of God:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are mine.” (Isaiah 43:1)
“I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.” (Isaiah 42:6-7)
