Shepastor: "A Bend in the Road..."

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: Philippians 1:6, KJV

Do you feel like you are at the end of your rope or your "road?" Consider these encouraging words by Helen Steiner Rice...

The End Of The Road Is But A Bend In The Road
by Helen Steiner Rice

When we feel we have nothing left to give
And we are sure that the "song has ended.'-
When our day is over and the shadows fall,
And the darkness of night has descended.
Where can we go to find the strength to valiantly keep on trying,
Where can we find the hand that will dry the tears
that the heart is crying.

There's but one place to go and that is to God
and dropping all pretense and pride.
We can pour out our problems without restraint,
and gain strength with Him at our side.

And together we stand at life's crossroads, and view what we think is the end,
But God has a much bigger vision, and He tells us it's Only a Bend-
For the road goes on and is smoother the pause in the song is a rest, the part
that's unsung and unfinished Is the sweetest and richest and best.
So rest and relax and grow stronger, LET GO and LET GOD
share your load.

Your work is not finished or ended,
You've just come to "A Bend in the Road.

You may be at the end of all your resources,
but you are at the Beginning of God's.

Be Still and watch God work,
You will be so very Amazed
God loves you!
He will reward you!
