Is He who has promised?

Are you passing through a testing?

Is your pillow wet with tears?

Do you wonder what the reason.

Why it seems God never hears?

Why it is you have no answer

To your oft-repeated plea.

As you wait on bended knee?

Do you wonder as you suffer.

Whether God does understand.

And if so, why He ignores you,

Fails to hold you in His hand?

Do black doubts creep in, assail you,

Fears without, and fears within,

Till your brave heart almost falters

And gives way to deadly sin?

All God's testing has a purpose ...

Some day you will see the light,

All He asks is that you trust Him,

Walk by faith and not by sight,

Do not fear when doubts beset you,

Just remember -- He is near;

He will never, never leave you,

He will always, always hear.

Faithful is He who has promised,

He will never let you fall,

Daily will the strength be given

Strength for each and strength for all.

He will gladly share pain with you,

He will gladly give you peace,

Till your tired and weary body

Find its blessed, glad release.

When the darken veil is lifted,

Then dear heart, you'll understand

Why it is you had to suffer,

Why you could not feel His hand

Giving strength when it was needed,

Giving power and peace within

Giving joy thru tears and trial,

Giving victory over sin.

So till then just keep on trusting,

Thru the sunshine and the rain,

Thru the tears and thru the heart-aches,

Thru the smiles and thru the pain

Knowing that our Father watches,

Knowing daily strength He'll give,

Victory for each passing hour,

This is life, so let us live!

Addendum -- Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the

plans I have for you, 'declares the LORD,'

plans to prosper you and not to harm you,

plans to give you hope and a future."
