Songs in the Night
Poetry with a biblical perspective on our journey through life.
Does our future lie in finance or the forecast of astrologers?
Are stocks and shares an anchor, the hope on which we rest?
Will our planning for the future really stand the test?
Is security the world can offer ever safe at all,
As walls of nations tumble and politicians fall?
Do we have a sure foundation that will stand the test of time,
Or will doubts and fears assail us if our fortunes fast decline?
If our life and health are threatened, will everything be lost?
By faith in Christ alone can we know a perfect trust;
Our future guaranteed and eternity secured,
To those investing in our heavenly Father’s treasure store.
Through her poetry, Adele Pilkington helps us to gain heaven’s perspective of our life on earth. Although we walk through the ‘night’ of life’s challenges, Adele offers us ‘songs’ of hope and glimpses of God’s perfect plan behind every moment.
