Do Not Despair ~



In this time of trouble throughout the whole world and within our nation, it is ripe for the enemy of our souls to cause despair AND confusion, but as a child of God, with Christ Jesus as our loving Redeemer AND Advocate before our Heavenly Father, we have the tools and the spirit to resist the enemy’s onslaughts and to overcome despair with the knowledge of the Father’s Joy in each of us. Here is another GREAT example by one of my favorite Christian poets. Be blessed AND encouraged! Thank You Sister Deborah for this timely word!

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Do not despair,
do not be oppressed
I will comfort you
so be not distressed.

Do not worry,
do not be alarmed
I will not let anything
cause you to be harmed.

Do not doubt,
do not be disillusioned
I have waiting for you
an joyful conclusion.

Do not anguish,
do not be downcast
I will bring you peace
if on Me you hold fast.

Do not despair,
do not be crushed . . .
put your faith in Me
for I’m worthy of your trust!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:8-9

We are troubled on every side,
yet not distressed;
we are perplexed,
but not in despair;

Persecuted,
but not forsaken;
cast down,
but not destroyed;
