FAITHFUL...

FAITHFUL...

 

 

Is He who has promised.

 

Are you passing through a testing?

 

Is your pillow wet with tears?

 

Do you wonder what’s the reason why

 

it seems God never hears?

 

Why it is you have no answer

 

to your oft-repeated plea.

 

Why the heaven still is leaden

 

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 have 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 rememberHe 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 darkened 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!
