Poetry Saturday—God Is Sufficient

George MacDonaldIt is easy to love Him when the blue is in the sky, 
When summer winds are blowing, and we smell the roses nigh; 
There is little effort needed to obey His precious will 
When it leads through flower-decked valley, or over sun-kissed hill.

It is when the rain is falling, or the mist hangs in the air, 
When the road is dark and rugged, and the wind no longer fair, 
When the rosy dawn has settled in a shadowland of gray, 
That we find it hard to trust Him, and are slower to obey.

It is easy to trust Him when the singing birds have come, 
And their canticles are echoed in our heart and in our home; 
But ’tis when we miss the music, and the days are dull and drear, 
That we need a faith triumphant over every doubt and fear.

And our blessed Lord will give it; what we lack He will supply; 
Let us ask in faith believing—on His promises rely; 
He will ever be our Leader, whether smooth or rough the way, 
And will prove Himself sufficient for the needs of every day. —George MacDonald
