Take Heart, Hold On

“Never give up, never give up

Never give up to thy sorrows

Jesus will bid them depart

Trust in the Lord, Trust in the Lord

Sing when your trials are greatest

Trust in the Lord and take heart.” – F. Crosby

Peace Forfeited

Oh what peace we often forfeit
Oh what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer. – J. Scriven

Remember God’s Goodness

Isn’t it so easy to forget God’s goodness to us in the past? The Hymnist John Newton writes

His love in time past forbids me to think He’ll leave me at last in trouble to sink

Do take a couple of minutes to ponder how The Lord has helped you through difficult times or how He has provided for you in the past. It will give you a lot of confidence for the present, and future.

Every Blessing, with prayers.

You Will Never Leave Me

“His love in time past forbids me think He’ll leave me at last in trouble to sink” John Newton, Hymn ‘Begone Unbelief, my Saviour is near’

The hymn writer obviously discovered one of the secrets of victory in life- that God never forsakes his children. What a blessed assurance! The Bible is filled with many exhortations to “remember what the Lord has done in the past“. This allows us to use the past as a great tool to cope with the present, as well as carve the future.

Lord, Your love in the past, especially what You achieved through the cross, forbids me to think You’ll ever leave me now. Help me remember this all the time.

Be blessed,

Run To Win

Running 400 meters under 46 seconds is an incredible achievement. Running it with a broken leg is simply astonishing!

In the 2012 Olympics, Manteo Mitchell of the United States broke his left leg whilst running in the heats of the 4×400-meter relay, and yet he managed to finish his section of the relay in excellent time, simply because he “didn’t want to let the… team down.” What a legend!

In the race of life, we may get injured sometimes (many times), but it’s comforting to be reminded of the finish line. Much more than just a stadium full of a crowd of cheering spectators, will be the Great Champion & Victor himself to give us the crown of glory that will never fade away.

Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.” James 1:12

Wishing you every blessing in Christ Jesus

Begone Unbelief

Begone, unbelief; my Saviour is near,
And for my relief will surely appear;
By prayer let me wrestle, and He will perform;
With Christ in the vessel, I smile at the storm.

Though dark be my way, since He is my guide,
‘Tis mine to obey, ’tis His to provide…

His love in time past forbids me to think
He’ll leave me at last in trouble to sink;

Why should I complain of want or distress,
Temptation or pain? He told me no less;
The heirs of salvation, I know from His Word,
Through much tribulation must follow their Lord.

Since all that I meet shall work for my good,
The bitter is sweet, the medicine, food;
Though painful at present, ’twill cease before long;
And then, O how pleasant the conqueror’s song.

~ John Newton, 1779

It Is No Secret

When bowed with burdens and with care
Your soul is in despair,
You don’t have to fear,
God is very near.
He loves you as He loved His Son
And He will help you too,
Just trust His word of promise
And He will see you through.

It is no secret what God can do
What He’s done for Jesus, He’ll do for you.
With mighty power He’ll strengthen you
It is no secret what God can do.

~ Zac Poonen, 1977
