There’s A Rainbow Up Ahead

Oh, There’s a Rainbow up ahead
Awaiting for me,
A promise of joy and hope,
A gift from the Father,
Creator of life,
The Maker of all Rainbows.

Oh there’s a promise up ahead
Of new life for me;
A river of mercy and peace;
Where the waters of God’s love
Will never run dry,
Where His presence
Will never cease.

Oh, there’s a rainbow up ahead
Awaiting for me,
The promise of bright new clothes~
A golden ring and a holy name
That no one but Jesus knows.

Oh there’s a promise up ahead
Of faith for my heart;
A gift from my Father above,
To help me to walk with Him each day
And to know His holy love.

Oh there’s a rainbow up ahead
Awaiting for me,
I just need to point my eyes
Up to the Son in the Heavens
And to trust that God never lies.

“Rainbow Up Ahead” are the lyrics to one of the prayer songs featured on my first album, “God’s Rainbow Promise.”

So often we get our focus off of Jesus and onto this material world, but the Bible reminds us that everything in this world that we can see and touch with our hands is only temporary, while the things we cannot see are eternal.

In his second epistle to the Corinthian Church, St. Paul encourages those who were suffering with these words, “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” ~ 2 Corinthians 4:17-18

God gives many promises in the bible to His children that are eternal promises that will only be fulfilled when we see our Lord face to face.
If we base our hopes in this material life we will be sadly disappointed, because as St. John wrote, “And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” ~ 1 John 2:17

Nothing in this material world is permanent. Jesus assures us that we are going to suffer tribulations in this life, but that if we abide in Him and in His word we shall have joy and peace because He is the same yesterday, today, and forever~He is eternal.
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”~ John 16:33

Trust God. He is completely faithful to keep every promise He makes. He has never failed you and He never will.

Heavenly Father, may You bless Thy children who are suffering trials of any sort, whatever path they are on today, lead and guide them with Thy wisdom and counsel.
Heal all hearts that have been broken and disappointed.
Speak words of comfort to those who desperately need a word from You, draw them close to You and encourage their heart with Thy measureless love for them.
Thank You, Lord, in Jesus’ mighty name, amen & amen.

Savior of My Soul Prayer Song

© S.D. Harden All Rights Reserved.


O, I will trust the living God,

The Savior of my soul-

I may not understand His ways

But He is in control.


My path may be obscure

And in the darkness lie,

But I will hope in Jesus

Who holds me in His eye.


He will not forget me

For I have been engraved

Upon His holy hands;

For Him my soul is saved.


For Him I am redeemed,

For Him I am reserved;

For Him I am a trophy

Of His grace to be preserved.


And though I sit in darkness

With trees that will not bud,

I have a promise from the Lord

That spring will surely come.


Though winter struts along

Like it will never end;

It’s just a giant’s shadow~

The spring He soon will send.


God’s promises are sure

Though I must walk by faith;

Such wonder in believing;

Such hope it generates!


Oh I will trust the living God,

The Savior of my soul;

O Lord, you know the paths I take,

For You are in control.


Yes, You are in control;

You know what’s best for me;

You’ve set apart unto Your heart

Those who will but believe.


And you will keep your promises

To those who trust in You

Though they may not understand

The mysteries of Truth.


Though I sit in darkness

On a path I had not planned

I will trust I am engraved

Upon Your holy hand.


And You will keep Your promises,

For You are in control,

O You will not forget me,

O Savior of my soul.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the assurance that You are always in control of all things. Thy word says in Psalm 103:19, “The Lord has prepared His throne in the heavens; and His kingdom rules over all,” and in Hebrews 1:3  that You “uphold all things by the word of Your power.”Romans 8:8 assures me that every detail of my life is being orchestrated by  You into something grand and beautiful and for my ultimate good because You care very much about each one of us. Psalm 138:8 promises that You will “fulfill Your plans for my life.” So I don’t need to worry about whether or not I am going to accomplish Your will for me. You will get me on the path I need to be on. And all I need to do is Trust You.

Lord, though this is often so hard to do, please help each of us to trust You when we cannot see past the bend in the road, when we cannot fathom Your purposes for us on the path You have chosen for us. Help us to trust You when nothing makes sense. Help us to keep our eyes on You anyway; to know that You are in control and that You cherish each of us beyond what we can imagine.

May the sense of Your abiding presence sustain every person praying this prayer. May they feel You with them as they never have before. May You renew their faith, fill them with new hope, and give them joy.

Thank You, dear Lord, I love You, In Jesus’ name. Amen.

God’s Plans For You

Just Around the Corner
Prayer Song  © Suzanne D. Harden
Just around the corner
Something new there’ll be,
Just around the corner,
Just you wait and see!
Just around the corner,
Just around the bend,
Just around tomorrow,
A little while and then…
A future full of hope,
A promise and a dream,
Just around the corner,
Just you wait and see.
Walk a while with Me,
You know I never lie
And when the way is hard
Just keep your hand in Mine.
And though the way is steep,
Keep looking up ahead
For there a promise waits for you
Just around the bend.
Oh, just around the bend,
Just you wait and see!
Oh don’t give up, My little one,
Keep walking on with Me.
Oh just around the corner
To tomorrow’s shores,
No matter what today may bring
Let Hope be ever yours.
Oh just around the corner,
Just you wait and see,
Oh don’t give up, My little one,
Keep walking on with Me.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You that You have promised to never leave or forsake us and to give us a future and a hope. May we walk by faith with our hand in Yours, though we see You only in our hearts. May we never give up on You even as You have promised to never give up on us. We love You, Lord! In Jesus holy name. Amen.
