Timely measures are His treasures
That He gives to make us better.
Much is needed to make holy
Those who follow Him so closely.
God is sovereign over all things,
Holy living to our lives brings,
So He takes us through our trials,
Some which come now through Belials.
No escaping hardships plenty,
Thinking we should not have any,
For they’re promised us in measure,
So, they’re not for our good pleasure.
Yet, suffering is for our good,
Throughout the Scriptures understood,
We die with Christ to all our sin
So we can now live sure for Him.
By faith we walk in righteousness,
For in Christ we are surely blessed.
But when we do, some will us hate,
For persecution is our fate.

My name is Sue J Love. I am married. My husband Rick and I have 4 children and 3 children-in-law and 14 grandchildren. I have been a full-time homemaker most of our married lives, and I have been in Christian ministry most of that time, as well. I started teaching the Bible when I was a teenager, and I have taught children, youth, and women most of my adult life. Since late in 2004 the Lord Jesus has had me writing out what he teaches me through his word and posting it on the Internet, which I have been doing full-time since 2006. He also has given me multiple songs to write, which he sometimes includes in these writings. All praise to Him!
