Tested Faith

In the darkness, hope becomes visible
It’s the glimmer of light around the bend

In doubt, faith becomes tangible 

Turning trials into a dearest friend
James 1:2-3
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance

Grace

Some might wonder 

How I could speak Your name

After all that I have done

It’s not because I’m worthy

But because of Your grace

That I am unconditionally loved

Hebrews 4:15

This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin.

Poetry

Prayer of Thanks

Thank You

     for never leaving

     for treating me with such kindness. 

Thank You 

     for never abandoning me 

     for never condemning me

Thank You 

     for wanting a relationship with me      

     for fighting to show me you care 

Thank You 

     for responding to me 

     for hearing my prayers 

Thank You 

     for creating me as a unique person 

     for designing a place for me in this life

Thank You

     All I have is a thank You today

     Thank You is all I can say

Poetry

Unfaithful

What part of You should I write of today?

The way You raise Your hand to stop me when I’m going the wrong way?

Or the blessings You shower down to remind me You love me and are here to stay.

How about the confidence You bestow when everything else is on shaky ground

Or the Hope you instill when no tangible reason to hope can be found

Yes those are all great. But I think there is  still another favorite I should proclaim.

When I told You I may never be faithful, You gently grabbed my hand and said “I know” and kept loving me anyway. 

2 Timothy 2:13

If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.
