Streams in the Desert

This is a poem that I have been reading over and over and over again. It is soothing to me and helps to remember that even when I don't feel it or want to believe it -- God's Word and promises are still true.

My words...will come true at their proper time. (Luke 1:20)

What the Lord has said...will be accomplished! (Luke 1:45)

The Lord is sure to accomplish those things
A loving heart has waited to see;
Those words will be fulfilled to which she clings,
because her God has promised faithfully;
And, knowing Him, she never can doubt His Word;
He speaks and it is done. The Mighty Lord!

The Lord is sure to accomplish those things,
O burdened heart, rest in His care;
In quients beneath His shadowing wings
Await the anser to your longings and prayer.
When you have "cast your cares" the heart sings,
The Lord is sure to accomplish those things.

The Lord is sure to accomplish those things,
O tired heart, believe, wait, pray.
Though cloud and rain and storm have filled the day.
Faith pierces through the mist of doubt that bars
the coming night and finds the stars.

The Lords is sure to accomplish those things,
O trusting heart, the Lord to you has told;
Let faith and hope arise and lift their wings;
to soar toward that sunrise clouds of gold;
the doorways of the rosy dawn swing wide,
Revealing joys the darkness of night did hide.

-Bessie Porter
