Oh Tired Heart


The Lord is sure to accomplish those things,
Oh tired heart, believe,wait and pray,

Peacefully, the evening chime still rings,
Though cloud and rain and storm have filled the day.

Faith pierces through the midst of doubt that barsThe coming night sometimes, and finds the stars.

The Lord is sure to accomplish those things,
O trusting heart, the Lord to you has told;

Let faith and hope arise, and lift their wings,
To soar toward the sunrise clouds of gold;
To the doorways of the rosy dawn swing wide,
Revealing joys the darkness of night did hide.

For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us (2 Cor 1:20)
~~~taken from the devotional "Streams In The Desert" poem by Bessie Porter.

A wonderful reminder, Debra, as we face and deal with so many issues we must remember He has it all under control and keep our eyes fixed on Him and Him alone.
