August 23, Today’s thought — But THROUGH

Melons are picked.

Good Morning

When thou passest through
Isaiah 43:2

“When thou passest through the waters”
Deep the waves may be and cold,
But Jehovah is our refuge,
And His promise is our hold;
For the Lord Himself hath said it,
He, the faithful God and true:
“When thou comest to the waters
Thou shalt not go down, BUT THROUGH,”

Seas of sorrow, seas of trial,
bitterest anguish, fiercest pain,
rolling surges of temptation
Sweeping over heart and brain–,
They shall never overflow us
for we know His word is true;
all His waves and all His billows
He will lead us safely through.

Threatening breakers of destruction,
Doubt’s insidious undertow,
Shall not sink us, shall not drag us
Out to ocean depths of woe;
For His promise shall sustain us,
Praise the Lord, whose Word is true!
\We shall not go down, or under,
For He saith, “Thou passest THROUGH.”
—-Annie Johnson Flint

Trust God for your day. . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
