I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” Heb 13:5″

Faithful 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.
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 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
Finds 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 through tears and trial
Giving victory over sin.

So till then just keep on trusting
Through the sunshine and the rain
Through the tears and through the heartaches
Through the smiles and through 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.
