Still standing

Cursed is the man who trusts in man

And makes flesh his strength,

Whose heart departs from the LORD,

For he shall be like a shrub in the desert,

And shall not see good when it comes,

But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness

In a salt land which is not inhabited.

Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,

And whose hope is the LORD,

For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,

And will not fear when heat comes;

But it’s leaf will be green,

And will not be anxious in the year of drought,

Nor will cease from yielding fruit.

Jeremiah 17:5-8

When Murphy’s law plays out and our fears come life,

Where the natural order of things brings us to a point where our own strength fails,

And our best laid out plans come undone,

May we be found having a Strength greater than ourselves

So that even when, outwardly, things fall apart

There will be an inner man,

Still standing.
