Words of Encouragement

HE CONQUERED

The following is a rap for my beloved Camp Shiktehawk.  This is the camp that I attended as a child and the camp where I trusted Jesus as my personal Saviour in a top bunk in cabin 11 1/2.  A sign hangs in the dining hall which reads “Where He Conquered” because it is said that is what the meaning of the word Shiktehawk is.  I remember another sign that hung by the fireplace in the old lodge which read “Jesus Never Fails.”  As the camp faces the challenges of some major repairs we know that indeed HE has never failed us. We have tested it and find it to be true indeed  and I know that HE will conquer any challenge if we give it to Him.  HE comes through every time!

Just look up there and see that sign

Where He conquered is the theme of my rhyme

Don’t grieve it

Just leave it

Believe it

Receive it

‘Cause He has conquered and we’ll be fine

 

Fixed the foundation in Warner Hall

Poured the concrete and built the wall

Repairs done

Y’all come

Visit some

Have some fun

Now it’s solid and it won’t fall

 

How ‘bout you is your foundation broke

The uglies of life flow in and soak

In a mess

Feelin’ stress

No Success

SOS

To the One who fixes human folk

 

The  flood waters came and the ice it jammed

And broke the bridge down from its span

So up we rose

To face those blows

The gap was closed

By all of those

Who cancelled Satan’s nasty plan

 

You too can swim when you’re going down

In the storms of life that make you drown

So look to Him

When life is grim

He’ll help you swim

And you will win

And you will get a golden crown

 

We know the crick it needs repair

But history tells us don’t despair

Not frantic

Nor panicked

Nor heartsick

Nor up the crick

God is the one who will get us there

 

God said we’d have trouble from time to time

Where He conquered is the theme of my rhyme

Don’t grieve it

Just leave it

Believe it

Receive it

‘Cause He has conquered and we’ll be fine

 

Don’t grieve it …

Just leave it …

Believe it …

Receive it!
