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.

GODS PROMISES
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.
