There Is No Pause (by Jo Ann Newlove)

The desire of our hearts
Is our Lord to serve,
To faithfully do our parts
Honoring Him as He deserves.
Then into life affliction falls.
The work is too hard to bear, it seems.
Can’t we take just a little pause, we cry –
Take a break to follow our own dreams?
O Christian, in life there is no pause.
We back away from God, or move toward Him.
Let prayer for guidance be our only pause,
And not slip backward into sin.
Advance, move forward for His cause.
Through trials, hardships and distress
God within our hearts does call;
Move onward and upward – I will bless.
