Firm Foundation

I’ll keep reminding myself
To place my hope in You
Not in another, not in a circumstance
Not in flashes of temporary hope before me
Nor memories of victories past
No, only in You
Will I hope and rely
On the Rock of Your truth and promises
Will I place each brick of my life.

“It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built.” Luke 6:48

Unchanging

Should sorrow come my way

and darkness cover all I see

Should I lose my dreams

And tragedy descend upon me

I’ll cling to You with my last grip

And place all my hope in You

Knowing your heavenly purposes

Prevail regardless of earthly truths

Your love remains the same

Your promises do not change
