Have you exhausted your store of endurance ? - 
Is your basket now empty - that once was so full ? -
Does the pathway you walk on seem uphill and narrow ?
And the burden you carry - seem harder to haul ? - Then turn
To the Saviour - whose yoke has proved easy - and lay down your 
Cares at the foot of the cross - then rest in the arms of the 
Father who loves you - and count all your blessings -
Not the things you have lost .

Are you seeking for  promotion - or that allusive winning 
Draw ? - or looking for the clover leaves - with their special
Number four ? - or - are you working so much harder - to appear
The best of all - so you stand above the others - with your head 
Held high and tall ? - are the Uppers and the Downers - still
Helping you get by - or the caffeine and the sugar -
Still keeping you on high ?

Friends - may I suggest to you - that these things will not
Last - and all the scheming and the plotting - will soon be in 
The past - and only things that God ordains - will bear good fruit
And remain  - for He giveth - and He giveth - and He gives us - yet
Again - for He knows about our frailties - as each day comes and goes -
He is aware of all our sorrows - and every tear that flows - but
He can solve all our problems - as we trust Him in each
Test - with Faith and hope - believing - He gives 
Only what is best .

His love has no limits - it goes on and on - when all others have
Deserted you - and loved ones have all gone - the Father will still 
Hold you tight - with love close to His breast - and speak tenderly to you - 
As He gives you  peace and rest - then - as you grow stronger - He will 
Strengthen your way - and give you love and courage to face 
Each coming day - Whatever the circumstance -  He will 
Always be near - and He'll protect you - and He'll guide  
You - and banish every fear . 

Such is His Loving Heart - reaching through All time - as 
He Giveth - and Giveth - and Gives Us -
Yet again .


This poem was inspired by the wonderful words of
Annie Johnson Flint  who wrote those immortal lines ...

He giveth - and giveth and giveth again.

May they bless you my friends today

With God's Everlasting love.
