What More Can You Ask?

Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! Psalm 107:15

God's love endureth forever-
What a wonderful thing to know
When the tides of life run against you
And your spirit is downcast and low...
God's kindness is ever around you,
Always ready to freely impart
Strength to your faltering spirit,
Cheer to your lonely heart...

God's presence is ever beside you,
As near as the reach of your hand,
You have but to tell Him your troubles,
There is nothing He won't understand...

And knowing God's love is unfailing,
And His mercy unending and great,
You have but to trust in His promise-"
God comes not too soon or too late"...

So wait with a heart that is patient
For the goodness of God to prevail-
For never do prayers go unanswered,
And His mercy and love never fail.

Hello! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a nice comment. I have just spent several moments reading through your blog, and I want you to know I enjoyed it very much...especially your post on Crazy Laws -- my mom and I read it and laughed together! I will probably start following your blog now...I am always on the lookout for blogs by other Christians, and am beginning to realize there really are more of us King's Daughters out there in the blogosphere than I first thought. Thanks again!

"His mercy and love never fail." A wonderful poem, I was really encouraged by it.
