"Formed into His Image"

Romans 5:3-5 - ...we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 - Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

Bang, bang, bang
going off in my head
As motionless I lay
on the MRI bed.
Taking image after image
I briefly wonder if I'm dead
But quickly I dismiss it
and sing songs of God instead.
It's a song of how He is my source
and how He is my strength
And how I Iift my hands in praise
and He fills me with faith.
It is Christ I am believing
as each step He'd have me take
With total trust in Father
even as I wait.
My Father brings me comfort
He lifts me when I despair
He's my consolation
so later I might care
For someome else in trouble
that a shoulder I might lend
Strong, that is in Jesus
in Him to be a friend.
