God bless you,
Be strong and of good courage.
Don’t let the sights dismay.
He’ll be there in the battle.
He will not let you stray.
If the Lord our God is for us,
then who can be against?
For He’s our Mighty Fortress;
our Shield and our Defence.
No weapon formed shall prosper;
no judging tongue succeed.
In Christ we are forgiven;
our righteousness is He.
Hold fast to His mighty word,
for greater is He in you
than he that is in the world.
The Lord will see you through.
(Joshua 1:9; Isaiah 54:17; Romans 8:31; 1 John 4:4)

Dear Friends, as we journey through life and unforeseen events occur, whether simple or greatly distressing, our faith may be tested – feelings may get in the way – sometimes we may be anxious, but there’s hope …….
As a glimmer of light on a starless night
faith keeps hope alive.
When days seem long and you don’t feel strong,
faith will help you thrive.
Like Winter, Summer, Autumn or Spring,
life brings seasons of change.
As sure as the sun, trials do come,
but friend – don’t think it strange.
Faith sings a song of joy within
for things still yet unseen;
rejoicing in hope, it helps you to win,
so don’t give up your dream.
Hold onto God through faith in Christ
and always sing your song.
The answer will come, just trust in Him,
each day as you journey along.
(Hebrews 11:1; John 15:10; 1 Peter 4:12)

God’s word tells us that
“..this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith” (1 John 5:4).
Through Him, we can still stand. Amen!
A wonderful refuge and shelter is found in the Lord Jesus Christ,
as expressed in my poem “Where Shall I Go?” above.
“Whom have I in heaven but thee?
and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee”
