Reading one of the assignments for one of my classes, I ran across this:
"He loves us. He will watch over us, and—even in hard times He will prosper us—if we are not of little faith. He may try us, but He will not forsake us. Don’t we in great sincerity sing:
How firm a foundation, ye Saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in his excellent word! …
The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,
I will not, I cannot, desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake?
(Hymns, no. 66.)
That is His promise, and His word is true,"
(Mark E. Petersen, May 1981)
I love it when things all fall into line.
