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.

A Song in the Night

I’d rather walk
in the valley with Jesus,
than on a mountain-top
without Him.
He gives a song
in the night.
knitting our hearts together
with sweet chords of love.
I’d rather walk
through valley’s long trial
with the Shepherd—
than high on a mountain
without His song.

Shepherd of love, empower me to go forth with heart
lifted up, s
inging love’s sweet song.

I call to remembrance my song in the night. Psalm 77:6
He will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17

#God Proved His Love For You

Made right with God by faith in Jesus—

Peace with God through the blood of His son,

A place to stand in undeserved privilege,

Waiting for the glory of His second return.

Wash My Feet?

“Never shall you wash my feet!”
This was too much for Peter.
Too much to think the Lord would
want to wash his feet. This was the
Christ, the Messiah. The very Son of
God. Peter knew in his heart he should
be the one washing Jesus feet!

Yet, when told he could have no part in the life of Jesus without being washed by
Him, the reluctant disciple’s heart changed.

Then Lord, wash not only my feet, but my hands and my head. 

Jesus took a towel and basin and met with me one day.
Will you let me wash your feet before you go your way?
Before you begin the work, I’ve called you to do;
Before you yield your body, My power and love flow through.
Before you face another day, knowing not what it will bring,
Will you let me wash your feet and cause your heart to sing?
Will you cease from all self-effort, come to me and rest?
Learn my yoke is easy, My will for you is best.
Will you let me wash your feet before you start your day?
Will you listen for my voice, My will and my way?
  . . . . . .

The poem was given to me out in the middle of the ocean years ago. Hoping I would
not forget the words pouring into my heart, I prayed I would remember them when
I returned to my hotel room.

I’m so grateful the words poured out afresh on pen and paper when I sat down to write.
Though inspired by the Lord, I believe the painting of a man sitting at his desk with
head bowed, while Jesus washed his feet, was the visual I needed to write it. Our children
had given the beautiful painting to their dad just after he had accepted a new job with a
special mission. The painting now hangs over his desk. And just to the left of the painting
is the framed poem entrusted to me many years ago.

Thank you Lord. I now know you were more after Peter’s heart than his feet. And what a
wonder to think 
you want to spend time lavishing unconditional love on your children. All
we need do is make room in 
our hearts for you. Only then can we receive the fresh outpour
of your grace. The grace that cleanses and renews the
thoughts and intents of our hearts,
and gives us a song to sing. 

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person.
The old life is gone, a new life has begun. 2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT
