31 Days of Hope Day 10

To celebrate 10 days together I wanted to share a poem. I have had this poem for several years. It's a reminder of what God HAS promised us.

God hath not promised skies always blue, flower strewn pathways
All our lives thro’; 
God hath not promised sun without rain, Joy without sorrow, Peace without pain.  
God hath not promised that 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.  
But God hath promised strength for the day, rest for the laborer, light for the way, 
Grace for the trials, 
Help from above, unfailing sympathy, undying love.


  1. We have rest when we allow God to be God today...

  2. Sheryl, thanks for reminding me of this truth!
