Between the Straits

When I feel like I can’t breathe,
And everything is pressing in on me,
I will look past my circumstance
Allowing You my vision to enhance.
I choose to trust in Your divine plan
And grasp tightly to Your loving hand.
Though everything may fall apart
I know that I still have Your heart.
So please, Father, show me Your face;
And help me rest in Your strong embrace
Between the straits.
