The LORD didn't promise 
That life would always be easy 
My friends - but He promised that He would
Be near - and He tells us - to lift - our heads up in
Triumph - and always - to  be of good  cheer - for He has 
Overcome the world with its troubles - and His mercies 
Each day - are brand new - and when we look back
On the journey we've travelled - we can see -
The many times - how the hand of
Our God - brought us 

Yes - He has brought us 
Through many dangers - and many days
Of  darkness  and fear - but - our Saviour has 
Broken the power of death and the Grave - and again 
He says  - be of good cheer - for no matter what's
Gone before us - and the days that may
Still be ahead - He tells us to walk
Boldly into the future - and
Not give in to panic
Or dread .

For the things of this world
Are all temporal - and one day - they 
Will all pass away - and every male and female 
Will give an account - when they meet with their Maker
One day - but - in the meantime - God calls us to
Be faithful - and trust in His Word - without
Fear - and stand united in love by His
Spirit - and - throughout all - He
Still says to us - be of
Good cheer .

Yes - be of good cheer 
Precious children - and don't fret - or
Grumble - or  frown - for God's  people  are 
Blessed beyond measure - and His faithful love will not
Let us down - so - praise Him for His goodness and
Mercy - and even the times - when He may not
Seem to be near - for - even in the darkest of
Valleys - my friends - He exhorts us to
Stand strong - and to be of
Good cheer


It seems like every day we are going from
one crisis to the next .. but for those who 
know the Lord as their Saviour .. He tells
not to give in to fear .. because He has
overcome the world through His 
death on the cross ..

And Jesus tells us that we too can be
more than conquerers as we put our
trust in Him ..

And again .. He would say to you ..
Be of Good Cheer ..

God bless you all with His love 
and peace .. now and always.
