• “If we do anything to further the kingdom of God, we may expect to find what Christ found on that road – abuse, indifference, injustice, misunderstanding, trouble of some kind. Take it. Why not? To that you were called. If we think of the glorious fact that we are on the same path with Jesus, we might see a rainbow.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Annie Johnson Flint

His grace is great enough to meet the great things
The crashing waves that overwhelm the soul,
The roaring winds that leave us stunned and breathless,
The sudden storm beyond our life’s control.



His grace is great enough to meet the small things
The little pin-prick troubles that annoy,
The insect worries, buzzing and persistent,
The squeaking wheels that grate upon our joy.
–Annie Johnson Flint

“Behold, I come” – the darkness lightens
Above all sorrow and all fear;
Beyond the clouds the Daystar brightens,
And our deliverance is near;
The groaning earth awaits the hour
When all the wrongs of time are past,
And clothed with glory and with power,
The King of kings shall reign at last.
– Annie Johnson Flint

“Is God-?’ ‘Does God-?’
Man’s ‘Why?’ and ‘How?’
In ceaseless iteration storm the sky.

‘I am’; I will’; ‘I do’—sure Word of God,
Yea and Amen, Christ answers each cry;
To all our anguished questionings and doubts
Eternal affirmation and reply.”

2Co 1:20  For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

    I am curious about copyrights to Annie Johnson Flint's poetry. Are they copyrighted and if so, who holds the copyright? I would like to include several of them in my writing.

    I have her book "Grace" with alot of her poems. I was looking forward to sharing them with others on Facebook, but noticed that in the beginning of the book there was a statement that nothing of hers is to be copied, reprinted, shared on any devices etc., as it's illegal. Well, that scared me off in sharing. You can get her books on Amazon, at least that one, and her poems are such a blessing.
