God Is Still Your Friend


When all your hopes appear gone
And the needed help is not near
Remember: God is still there

When the light is out
And all you can see is thick darkness
Try not to forget God’s goodness

When you think no one understands
Which makes you feel so mad
Remember: things are not so bad

When you find yourself in a quagmire
And all your problems seem to swell
By faith, you can still say “It is well”

When you’re tempted in life to quit
Encourage yourself, stay on and fight
By God’s grace, things will turn out right.

When it seems no one cares
And troubles assail you without end
Remember: God is still your friend.

  1. Thank you Victor and it is very True what you shared, God is always there for us as we see confirmed in the Scripture below, I wrote about those feelings of being hurt and abused too and was assured that all good things come from God not bad.

    Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

    Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid for I have ransomed you, I have called you by name, you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression you will not be burned up the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD your GOD, The Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

    Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of Peace and not of evil, to give you a Future and a Hope.

      Thanks Anne for the scriptures quoted. Jeremiah 29:11 is my personal favourite in the entire Bible. “All things work together for my good…”
