Just Trust.

2 Comments

sunshineOh dear today, I shall remember

The happenings that you hold.

 

I breathe in deeply, straining to believe

In the beautiful things I was told.

 

Never before have I truly understood

The phrase ‘too good to be true.’

 

I wage war against my little doubting heart

And  beg the LORD to see this good thing through.

 

I look up. He smiles.

I blush with shame.

 

How could I ever doubt the King

Who brought this deceitful peasant into His own Home…

Brought me into His own family

To bear His own Son’s Name.

 

I speak to Him silently,

“Kill my doubt. It seeks to make me forget how beautiful my soul’s Lover is.”

 

Peace fills my lungs,

Giving me the courage to leap off the cliff’s edge

And glide to safety

On the Wings called trust.

 

I doubt on account of mortal man’s track record for letting me down.

How silly of me to forget that You are the one who defied death itself for me.

 

You are great enough

To guide home

The little lost sheep.

 

You can. And you will.

 

I trust You.

 

In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.  –Philippians 1:4-6

 

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” –John 16:33

 

God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? –Numbers 23:19

 

<< Titus 1 >>
New International Version


1Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ to further the faith of God’s elect and their knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness— 2in the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time, 3and which now at his appointed season he has brought to light through the preaching entrusted to me by the command of God our Savior,

4To Titus, my true son in our common faith:

Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.

Jesus is my Savior, my Lord, my strength, my song, my life, my hope... my best Friend.
