LESSONS OF HUMILITY
By Helen Pearson Garrett

Troubles? I had loads of them - family responsibilities, frailty following Cancer surgeries. Name it. I had it!
But when he opened his Bible - and showed Me that Verse - {Hebrews 11:1-6} - I was dazzled by the brightness of God's promises - and I felt lifted from the pains of life, filled with hope and courage.
Ever since, it has served as a guide to lead me out of troubles into The Light of His Truth, and onto the firm Foundation of HIS Love.


Jesus said: "I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. (Jn 8:12)

THERE'S A CANDLE BRIGHT

For Every Trouble
There's a Candle Bright
Lighting Up
The darkest Night.

For Your Every doubt
or fear
There's a Star shining
Near.

For the surcease
of every sorrow
You May hold,
I know the Sweetest
Story Ever told.

It tells of how
Jesus came...
And died on Calvary,
So that of our
Sins and sorrows
He could Set us
Free!

For every Trouble
There's a Candle
Lighting up
the darkest Night.

In Thee.

GOD HAS NOT PROMISED US A SMOOTH PATH

God has not promised
Us always a smooth,
Carefree Path...
But He has Promised
Us always from all
of our Troubles
a glorious aftermath!

He has Promised Us
His Light
Along the Way,
And He has
To Listen To Us
When We Pray.

He has Promised
To be with Us
In Sorrow
And He has
Promised Us
A Bright and Shining
Tomorrow!

MY LOVE FOR THEE

Bright as a Lighted Candle
Shines In My Heart
My Love for Thee
Bright as the gleaming
of a Star...
and
that shining Love Sets
Me Free!
Bright as the gleaming
of a Star...
And that shining Love
Sets Me Free.
Free from Doubt
And free from
Fear.
All worry Now
has flown on swift
Wings - I know not
where. I only know
It to be gone.

And Peace that passeth
understanding
Fills My Waiting
Heart.
Joy floods All My
Being as it's ugly
Cares
Depart.

Thy yoke Is Easy.
Thy Burden is
Light...
And even through
The darkest Night
I have no fear
THOU art Near.

SUNLIGHT IN MY SOUL

There is Sunlight In My Soul,

And though Storms
With darkness
Roll...
No Terrors can assail
With His Sunlight
In My Soul.

There Is Sunlight
In My Soul
And with Jesus'
Life
As My goal...
No danger can
Ever Conquer
Me
With Sunlight
In My Soul.

There Is Sunlight
In My Soul,
And with His
Infinite Love
For Me
I Shall sing
His Song
of a Victory
As boundless
As the
Sea.

I NEEDED SOMEONE

I needed
Someone
and Behold!
JESUS Was
There.
He came close
To Me...
In Answer
To My
Heartfelt,
Longing
Prayer.

He came to tell
Me
That life in Him
Is good _ _
And that
Life without
Him
Is as a dark
Wood.
He Came
In His Great
glory,
and His Light
Shone
All around.

In My heart
I felt
His own true
Love
Expand and
abound.
Then the shadows
about Me
all fell away...

and it was all
just because
I began
To Pray.

I needed
Someone
and Behold
Jesus is
Here.

I touched the hem
of His garment.
I heard His
Voice
Sweet and clear.
"Fear not My Child,
I will Help You.
In the midst
of it all I am Here".

NEW GROWTH

The Rose blossoms
On the New Growth...
Not on the old,
and bright, fresh
thoughts
Stream from
God
Into My Life...
Like Sunlight's Gold.
