3-30-15 Neither Fail Nor Forsake

alone

I AM your God, and I will always BE,

I do not sleep, I do not slumber, too.

I watch a star evolve, I watch a flea,

I watch the universe; I’m watching you.

I will not fail you; you can count on Me.

I always keep the promises I make.

I know that life has its adversity;

I won’t abandon you when love’s at stake.

I did not leave when Adam fell from grace,

I never did forsake the prophets bold.

I was with Jesus til sin took His place;

I was with Him when death failed to take hold.

Relax, My child, You’ll never be alone

I AM your God, and you are all My own.

~~~~~~~~~~~

I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Joshua 1:5 KJV

11-13-14 Peaceful Sleep

sleeping peacefully

Your enemies surround me all the day,

Attacking both my body and my mind,

But I’ve no fear amid the constant fray,

For Your protective love has me entwined.

Great evil stalks the land like hungry beast,

Devouring the truth with hate and lies,

But though it lays beside me with its feast,

I share the gospel without compromise.

The past and future rob most men of sleep;

Their troubles run unchecked all through the night,

But Your serenity makes slumber deep;

There is no need to worry in Your sight.

Rest safely in the shelter of the Lord;

Find comfort in His Word, the great reward.

~~~~~~~~~~~

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep:

for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.

Psalm 4:8 KJV
