The Promises of God

God has not promised
Skies always blue,
Flower-strewn pathways
All our lives through;
God has not promised
Sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow,
Peace without pain.

But God has promised
Strength for the Day,
Rest for the labour,
Light for the way,
Grace for the trials,
Help from above,
Unfailing sympathy,
Undying love.

This poem by Annie Johnson Flint reminds us that although we may face many challenges in our life, with God on our side He will never leave, nor forsake, us. For He will always be with us wherever we go and whatever we do.

Jesus said, “Ask and it shall be given unto you.”

Never underestimate the Power of Prayer. Our Father God will always provide us with the inner strength we need to successfully complete our daily tasks and overcome all obstacles, real or imaginary!


With many peaceful blessings
