When the way seems dark, when there seems to be no answer, when you're weary of the load you are carrying, when your pillow is soaked with your ceaseless tears......

Remember this:

"There shall be a performance" Luke 1:45
"My words shall be fulfilled in their season" Luke 1:20

There shall be a performance of those things
That loving heart has waited long to see;
Those words shall be fulfilled to which she clings
Because her God has promised faithfully.
And, knowing Him, she ne'er can doubt His Word
'He speaks and it is done'...the mighty God!
There shall be a perfomrance of those things
O burdened heart, rest ever in His care
In quietness beneath His shadowing wings
Await the answer to your longing prayer.
When thou "has cast thy care" the heart then sings
There shall be a performance of those things.
There shall be a performance of those things
O tired heart, believe and wait and pray
At eventide, the peaceful vesper rings
Though cloud and rain and storm have filled the day
Faith pierces through the mist of doubt that bars
The coming night sometimes, and finds the stars.
There shall be a performance of those things
O trusting heart, the Lord to thee hath told
Let faith and hope arise and plume their wings
And soar towards the sunrise clouds of gold.
The portels of the rosy dawn sing wide
Revealing joys the darkening night did hide.
---Bessie Porter
Matthew Henry says "We must depend upon the performance of the promise when all the ways leading up to it are shut up."
Proverbs 3: 5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths."
Though your path may be dark today, TRUST the One who loves you and is working all things for your good. He will perform it for you in His time and in His way, rolling back the dark clouds and revealing the sunshine once again. Cling to this today, dear friend, do not lose hope!!
