Remember, There Is a God in Heaven

Remember, there is a God in Heaven who loves us no matter what! From the above message by Charles Stanley

When we do what we ought to do
Instead of what we want
When we, with tear-and-groaning rue
Battle temptation’s taunt
Remember, we are not alone
Nor do we fight in vain
For God abides on Heaven’s throne
Our struggle to sustain

When we think that we want to quit
And cannot bear the load
That presses on our little bit
Of will-and-want fraught road
Remember, there is One who knows
The intent of each hurt
And He is greater than the woes
Tormenting Time’s wee dirt

When gods clad in self-righteous cloth
Distract us with their guile
And we are tempted to think both
Can be served for a while
Remember, God in Heaven gives
us courage, strength and hope
And He equips us all our lives
With what we need to cope

  Above all else, guard your affections. For they influence everything else in your life. Prov. 4:23 LB

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.Romans 8:28
