The Promise

i saw a good friend yesterday and she said something that shook the security that i’ve been feeling. she asked me, "what if you don’t pass? what if wala na talagang blessing na ibigay sa iyo si Lord?…even if things happening to you are bad, you’ll have no opinion about them because they’re dim" boy, those questions, and our conversation yesterday really got me thinking. i realized this morning that i got disturbed because i still had some trust issues remaining in my heart…and so i spent most of the entire morning presenting those concerns to the Lord. i didn’t end my devotional time until i felt His peace. then, this afternoon, in our church choir practice, just when i remarked that the lyrics of this song are just so nice, the conductor asked if i could be the soloist for the song next sunday. although i didn’t really know the song yet, i readily accepted the offer because the lyrics of the song spoke to me so much. here are the lyrics and a video that i found on youtube.

I never said that I would give you silver or gold
Or that you would never feel the fire or shiver in the cold
But I did say you’d never walk thru this world alone
And I did say don’t make this world your home

I never said that fear wouldn’t find you in the night
Or that loneliness was something you’d never have to fight
But I did say I’d be right there by your side
And I did say I’ll always help you fight

‘Cause you know I made a promise that I intend to keep
My grace will be sufficient in your time of need
My love will be the anchor that you can hold on to
This is the promise, this is the promise I’ve made to you

I never said that friends would never turn their backs on you
Or that the world around you wouldn’t see you as a fool
But I did say like me you’ll surely be despised
And I did say My ways confound the wise

I didn’t say you’d never taste the bitter kiss of death
Or have to walk thru chilly Jordan to enter into rest
But I did say I’d be waiting right on the other side
And I did say I’ll dry every tear you’ve cried

‘Cause you know I made a promise that I’ve prepared a place
And someday sooner than you think you’ll see me face to face
And you’ll sing with the angels and a countless multitude
This is the promise, this is the promise I’ve made to you

So just keep on walking don’t turn to the left or right
And in the midst of darkness let this be your light
That hell can’t separate us and you’re gonna make it thru
This is the promise, this is the promise I’ve made to you
Oh, this is the promise, this is the promise I’ve made to you
