His Altar Is Always Open

by Kenny Rager

When your world gets rocked and shaken down to its very core,
it's nice to know your faith in God will lead you to a peaceful shore.

When the sky is full of gloom and all you can see are stormy seas,
it's calming to know God will steer your life into a gentle breeze.

When a bad day gets the best of what's left of your heart and soul,
it's grand to know God will sit beside you with support and console.

When there is no drug that can ease the pain of your broken heart,
it's comforting to know God will show you the way to a healing start.

When your world is caving in and you wonder how you'll stay alive,
it's reassuring to know God will give you His strength to survive.

When your demons take control and you are on the edge of defeat,
it's wonderful to know God is on your team and He's never been beat.

When you have lost your way and are depressed from going no where,
it's good to know God will guide you with His vision and tender care.

When the lab results come back with nothing but dreadful news,
it's encouraging to know God will send his best two angel crews.

When the roof of life comes off and debris flies in every direction,
it's nice to know there is shelter under God's wing for your protection.

When your finances have gone from bad to a stressful disaster,
it's calming to know its only money and God is still your master.

When a dear friend or cherished loved one passes from your home,
it's heartening to know God has a place for them by his throne.

When your child goes off to war to defend our liberty and peace,
it's relieving to know God will be there to help the conflict to cease.

When your relationship to another takes a turn down a dark trail,
it's good to know God's love will light up a new path without fail.

When your home is attacked by fire, thief or scary stranger,
it's reassuring to know God will guard you from any danger.

When your body is fighting a battle against sickness and disease,
it's nice to know God will care for you and put your mind at ease.

When your ship is going down and life's perils are crashing on you,
it's comforting to know God will be there to safely anchor onto.

When you are drowning under the weight of misery and despair,
it's soothing to know God will rescue you with a breath of fresh air.

When life's tragic events each come knocking at your door,
it's great to know God's spoken word will save you once more.

When you hurt so badly inside from relentless stress and grief,
it's nice to know God is only a prayer away with peaceful relief.

When there's no one else between you and a distant setting sun,
pray to God as He will listen and answer your prayers one by one.
God's waiting to hear from you, "His Altar is Always Open".
