Promises He Keeps (II Timothy 1:7)

Promises He Keeps

I felt his presence in the room,
My heart was gripped in fear.

I felt my blood turn icy cold,
My heart frozen and still.

I tried to fight him night and day,
Staying conscience and alert.

My strength did fail and fear arrived,
His power was greater than mine.

In one last desperate attempt,
I began to read my dusty Bible.

I tried to find God in that book,
But the meaning wasn’t clear.

I spied a stranger’s gift to me,
A tract given long ago.

I read it again one final time,
Learning of a Father’s love.

It talked of repenting of one’s sin,
And ended with God’s dear grace.

I asked forgiveness of my sins,
Repenting and turning away.

Still I doubted the truth from God,
And made a pact with Him.

If salvation is true, O mighty God,
Then wake me in the morn.

If not, dear Lord, my strength has failed,
And death is what I yearn.

That night I slept a healing sleep,
And in the morning I rose.

With joyful heart, I praised my God,
For promised He keeps.
