God Is There Beside You!

The thunder is rolling in
And the lightning strikes at your heart
Don't worry, don't give up
God is there beside you.

You feel like your all alone
And this journey is so long
Don't worry, don't give up
God is there beside you.

He has a shield around you,
He will protect you,
He is your best friend,
Lean on Him.
So don't worry, don't give up
He is there beside you!

Hymn of Encouragment

I love this verse of this Hymn Great Is Thy Faithfulness.

3. Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth, 
    Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide,
    Strength for TODAY and bright hope for TOMORROW 
    Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

Chorus:
    Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
    Morning by morning new mercies I see.
    All I have needed Thy hand hath provided.
    Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me.

'Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus

1. 'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
    Just to Take Him at His Word,
    Just to rest upon His promise,
    Just to know; "Thus saith the Lord."


3. Yes 'tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
    Just from sin and self to cease,
    Just from Jesus simply taking Life and rest,
    and joy and peace.


4. I'm so glad I learned to trust Thee,
    Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
    And I know that Thou art with me,
    Wilt be with me to the end!


Chorus:
    Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
    How I've proved Him o'er and o'er!
    Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
    O for grace to trust Him more!

Words from "God Calling"

I read these words in my devotional book called God Calling and they were really encouraging to me and I hope they are to you too!


Know Me
"I am here. Seek not to know the future. Mercifully I veil it from you. Faith is too priceless a possession to be sacrificed in order to purchase knowledge. But Faith itself is based on a knowledge of Me. So remember that this evening time is not to learn the future, not to receive revelation of the Unseen, but to gain an intimate knowledge of Me which will teach you all things and be the very foundation of your faith."

                                                                   Wonders Will Unfold
"I am with you. Do not Fear. Never doubt My Love and Power. Your heights of success will be won by the daily persistent doing of what I have said. Daily, steady drops of water, so will your daily persistence wear away all the difficulties and gain success for you, and secure your help for others. Never falter, go forward so boldly, so unafraid. I am beside you to help and strengthen you. Wonders have unfolded. More still will unfold, beyond your dreams, beyond your hopes. Say "All is well" to everything. All is well!"
God Calling by: A. J. Russell

Purpose

"We all possess the thunder of pure fury and the calm breeze of tranquility.  If it wasn't for tomorrow, how much would we get done today?  Whatever your purpose... embrace it completely.  Get lost in the clouds every now and then so you never lose sight of God's wonder."  ~Paul Vitale
