He who PROMISED
On the day the royal wedding of William and Kate took place, the world stood still. It was a union of a commoner and a royalty which everyone saw as a classic example that LOVE conquers all. It made an impact on everyone, young and old. People watched in awe and talked about the fairy-tale exchange of vows. The public display of affection from Will and Kate when they kissed in the balcony of Buckingham Palace received a huge applause from the world.
It took place after Easter while the whole Christian kingdom was still celebrating the victory won by the Cross. And it was also before the great Pope John Paul II was beatified.
For a moment, people forgot the events that were unfolding in Libya and in Syria; the tornado that hit four states in the US, particularly in Alabama, and its aftermath; and other things that put the world in crisis.
This series of events led me to hope and believe that the beauty of God's love will win our battles in life. It all points to God's love and His faithfulness.
Therefore, there is no reason to live in fear nor despair from what is going on around us. "For He who has promised is faithful." (1Thes. 5:24)
Faithful is He who has promised, He will never let you fall, Daily will the strength be given Strength for each and strength for all.
Knowing that our Father watches, Knowing daily strength He'll give, Victory for each passing hour, This is life, so let us live!
