Food in the Wilderness & Alphabet of Assurance (September 2020)

Food in the Wilderness
(Source Unknown)

When our way is weary, and the going tough,
When life is dreary and things get rough,
When spirits weaken and the day time dark,
When sadness deepens and pain finds its mark,
Strengthen and keep us true, save us, Lord, as You can.
Lord when troubles oppress, Feed us in the wilderness.

Alphabet of Assurance
Those of you who have been members of SBC for some time, particularly those who were members of the Burgess Road Home Group in 2005, will remember a South African couple, Clive & Ronnie C, who worshipped with us for some time. It was Ronnie who passed this on to us with the comment that it was “one of the nicest and most beautiful uses of the alphabet that I have ever seen.”  We hope you agree!  Eds.

Although things are not perfect
Because of trial or pain
Continue in thanksgiving
Do not begin to blame.
Even when the times are hard
Fierce winds are bound to blow,
God is forever able
Hold on to what you know.
Imagine life without His love,
Joy would cease to be.
Keep thanking Him for all the things
Love imparts to thee.
Move out of “Camp Complaining”
No weapon that is known
On Earth can yield the power
Praise can do alone.
Quit looking at the future
Redeem the time at hand,
Start every day with worship,
To “thank” is a command.
Until we see Him coming,
Victorious in the sky,
We’ll run the race with gratitude
Xalting God most high.
Yes, there will be good times & yes, some will be bad, but
Zion waits in glory … where none are ever sad
Alleluia !!!
