Quotations: What God Hath Promised

Photobucket
-
"God hath not promised skies always blue, flower-strewn pathways all our lives through; God hath not promised sun without rain, joy without sorrow, peace without pain.

-
God hath not promised we shall not know, toil and temptation, trouble and woe; He hath not told us we shall not bear, many a burden, many a care.
-
God hath not promised smooth roads and wide, swift, easy travel, needing no guide; never a mountain, rocky and steep, never a river, turbid and deep.
-
But God hath promised strength for the day, rest for the labor, light for the way, grace for the trials, help from above, unfailing sympathy, undying love."

Annie Flint (words) and William Runyan (music)

  2. Amen! A lot people think that when you become a Christan that everything will be perfect. Like a story from a fairyland. It is like that one verse in Proverbs that says both wicked are rightoues men will fall. But the rightoues will get up and the wicked will perish. Nice post!
