Invocation by Chaplain Fred S. Hollomon:
You were not in the wind, nor the earthquake, nor the fire, but then there came a still,
small voice. (I Kings 19:11b-12)
Sometimes I get discouraged
Trying to do what's right.
I've lost a lot of battles
Fighting a fair fight.
I'm tempted to cut corners,
To see what I can do
With a little deception
Maybe win a round or two.
But every time this kind of thought
Comes into my mind,
I can hear Your still, small voice,
``You know you're not that kind.''
I've tried to bargain with you, Lord,
Just let me cheat one time.
But again I hear that still, small voice,
``You know you're not that kind.''
So I'll walk the straight and narrow,
And hopefully I will find
Though I'm tempted to deceive,
I'm really not that kind.
Once more I heard that still, small voice,
``Remember what you're fighting for.
You may lose some battles, child,
But you will surely win the war!''
I thank You for that assurance, Lord, in Jesus' Name,
