I have just come out of a wonderful weekend! A weekend of getting away! Here is what I came away with…..
The Lord promises us Mountaintops….where we will commune with Him and life could not be better….and He promises that we will have valleys….days when we feel we cannot go on one more step….
However….PRAISE THE LORD! It takes two mountain tops to make a valley….the PROMISE….with God there will always be more Mountain tops than valleys.
I was able to spend some sweet reunion time with several of my friends. Three of them where my dear friends The Martins (http://www.the-martins.com/). They were in concert this weekend…and sang one of my favorites…here are the lyrics.

I never said that I would give you silver or gold.
Or that you would never feel the fire or shiver in cold…
But I did say “You would never walk through 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 every time of need…
My love will be the anchor that you can hold on to…
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 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 that you’d never taste the bitter kiss of death
Or have to walk through 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 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 your gonna make it through
This is the Promise, this is the Promise….I’ve made to you.
