THE WRITINGS OF RUTH MARTIN
The Preacher's Wife

PROMISE

Out of the rubble, a flower grows,
Bravely flaunting a blossom fair.
Over the ashes, a robin sings,
A clear sweet song floating on the air.

After the deluge of rain that fell
A shimmering rainbow arcs on high.
Above the twisted carnage below
An eagle soars into the sky.

The Morning Star greets waking Morn,
Ending the grim and endless night,
And caught on the rim of a fragmented dream
A dewdrop sparkles in Dawn's first light.

Comments from Ruth on PROMISE

As our shocked, unbelieving eyes stared at the scenes before us, every fiber of human emotion sobs, "Finish", or some similar word of finality. But Praise His Name, those who place their trust in the Eternal One know that only God can write "Finish," and we believe He will bring forth victories yet un-imagined and His Glory and Power will be manifested in as yet unrevealed manner. Now our eyes see only death, pain and destrucion but Tomorrow WILL come. And God holds all the Tomorrows of all the future in His hands.To those who love Him, He has promised to bring forth good out of what seems totally bad.As we surender ourselves into His keeping we will "stand still and see the Glory of the Lord." We need not fear the future for He is already there. He is from everlasting to everlasting, unchanging and unchangeable, the same yesterday, today and forever. And He loves us.
