Hope That Doesn't Disappoint

A Faith More Precious Than Gold

The Valley of Trials

You have come through
the valley of trials,
and have found Me faithful.
You’ve wept and cried out,
worshipped, and leaned hard on Me,
and always—always
I’ve been by your side.

I’ve sung over you
and rejoiced to hear you pick
up the song
and sing it back to Me.
I’ve held you close
to My heart
when yours was breaking.

I’ve promised your joy will return
and will watch and
wait with you,

until you find it to be so.
I am all you need,
no matter
the season, trial or test.

I have found your tested faith more precious than gold.

I have sought you out,
chosen and called you to come to Me.
I am your very source of
the Bread of life and Living water.
I AM….I AM
and I’ll be what it takes
to meet your need.

Faith, Hope, and Love Whispers

6 Comments

Daddy and Esther
We miss neither tears nor sadness,
just sweet moments of heart connects;
when time stood still and Faith whispered,
“Everything’s going to be all right”.

We embrace not the loss of years,
just sweet memories tucked in our hearts,
when time stood still and Hope whispered,

Everything’s going to be all right”.

We walk through storms with heads held high and do not fear, for God is near and time stands still and Love whispers,

Everything’s going to be all right”.

In memory of my dad, whose life and words echoed this promise…

We know that all things work together for good for those who love God,  who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

Feeling Incomplete?

IMG_0057

 

I wonder what happened?

A missing petal caused the lily to appear incomplete.

There are times I feel that way.

I’m caught off guard at times, responding in ways that are unloving or unkind to those around me.

Perfection raises its ugly head. “You’re still flawed, inadequate, imperfect!”

Disappointment grips my heart and I cry out…

“How long O Lord, how long?”

Then I hear the still small voice within; “As long as it takes.”

And I am encouraged.

How about you?  Ever get discouraged or impatient when your reactions

aren’t what you want them to be?

If so, isn’t it good to remember the promises from God’s Word!

The truth is, every follower of Jesus is a work in progress, and we need to trust Him to do the changing while we do the trusting.

The Bible encourages us to let our roots grow down deep in the soil of God’s love and embrace this promise.

Faithful to complete it.


I am certain that God, who began the good work 
within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.
Philippians 1:6 NLT

See God in Everything

Forget past  IMG_0886

See God in everything whether great or small.
Trust His Sovereign will to all who will call.
Trust Him to guide and keep never let you fall.
See God in everything whether great or small.

See God in everything…morning, noon, and night.
Trust His hand to lead from darkness into Light.
Remember He has promised never to leave or fail.
See God in everything, His promises prevail.

See God in everything when human reason speaks.
Trust His Holy Word to guard your heart and keep.
Peace that passes understanding, joy to fill your heart.
See God in everything and He will not depart.

See God in everything when pressures mount within.
Trust Him to guide and keep your heart from sin.
Cry out when you’re weary…He sees and hears your call.
See God in everything whether great or small.

See God in everything through the fog and din.
Trust the song He sings will give you joy again.
Run the race before you empowered by His Grace.
See God in everything and give Him all your praise.

I focus on this one thing; forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race (Philippians 3:10-11 NLT).
