God, You’ve Been Working

God, You’ve Been Working

 by Katy Kauffman


 Jesus answered them, “My Father has been working until now,

and I have been working.” John 5:17 NKJV


In the shadows of my memory,

I see You working behind the scenes.

Times when I might have battled alone,

You were there, keeping my heart in Your Word,

Defeating evil forces come to take me captive.


In the secret parts of my heart,

I feel new strength growing.

Courage dissolves my fears.

Hope that I thought had died

Has come to life again.


In the normal routine of life,

I see adventures waiting to be had,

Friendships to build and hearts to love,

Opportunities to use,

And truths to discover.


You’ve been working all along.

In the night while I slept,

You protected my soul.

During the day as I walked on Your path,

You guided my steps.


Thank You, God, for Your constant presence.

I will trust You when I can’t see clearly.

I will follow You when I don’t know where the path will lead.

Keep me close to Your heart.

I know You’ve been working all along.
