God’s Promises……

*******

I have promised Peace – but not leisure;
Heart-rest and comfort – but not pleasure;
So do not feel when adverse things happen=
that you have failed or not being guided.
But I have said
In the world you will have tribulations,
but be of good cheer. I have overcome the world.”

So learn of Him  – the overcoming Power-
Even though – He was spat upon;  scourged;
misunderstood;  forsaken; crucified;
Not the pain;  the mocking or the agony-
made Him forget the TASK ahead and say on the cross –
“It is finished”‘.

Let these thoughts strengthen us
– Amid failure; discord and confusion –
He will never forsake you.

What a wonderful Promise!
