If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine (Matthew 26:39; NLT).
Revive my fading faith,
Then I’ll believe in you.
But if you don’t revive my faith,
I’ll still hold fast to you.
Renew my ebbing hope,
Then I will trust in you.
But if you don’t renew my hope,
I’ll still cling tight to you.
Repair my dying love,
Then I will worship you.
But if you don’t repair my love,
I’ll still belong to you.
Restore my failing health,
Then I will follow you.
But if you don’t restore my health,
I’ll still be one with you.
1. I lie in the dust; revive me by your word (Psalm 119:25; NLT).
Believe in the Lord your God (2 Chronicles 20:20; NLT).
Hold fast to him (Deuteronomy 11:22; NIV).
2. Renew my life with your goodness (Psalm 119:40; NLT).
Trust in God (John 14:1; NLT).
Cling tightly to the Lord your God (Joshua 23:8; NLT).
3. I will raise up the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down, and repair its damages (Amos 9:11; NKJV).
Worship the Lord your God (Luke 4:8; NIV).
Whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord (Romans 14:8; NIV).
4. Restore me to health and make me live (Isaiah 38:16; ESV).
Follow me and be my disciple (Matthew 9:9; NLT).
Whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17; NIV).

Certain health issues are taboo to admit, but less so with the new openness about mental health. The same taboo exists in Christianity about times of darkness in personal faith, when rather than fearing them we should embrace them in Him as Job did. Excellent Devotional poem on this Ruth, thank you and God bless you richly today.
Thank you so much, Alan. I’m struggling to keep up with things, which is why I don’t always manage to comment on your blogs, but I do appreciate our contacts and your kindness very much XXXXX
