prayer

Moment of Truth

 

God in foxholes?

Is He there?

A moment of truth,

If you dare.

 

Death draws near,

What do you say?

On whom do you call?

To make a way.

 

The time has come

To play or fold.

Which winning cards

In your hands, hold?

 

The air is thick

With battle’s smoke.

It’s life or death;

This is no joke.

 

So lay it all

Upon the line.

Call His name,

This God Divine.

 

Take His hand

And walk with Him.

He’ll see you through

Until the end.

Opposites

The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.

—1 Samuel 16:7 (NIV)

 

The ways of this world…

this human nature…

are opposite of the Lord’s ways.

 

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Isaiah 55:8-9 (NIV)

When

~~~

When I pray, He listens.

When my words are few, He talks to me.

When I am afraid, He holds me

When my hope is low, He lifts me up.

When my faith is weak, He inspires me.

When I lose my way, He finds me.

When I falter, He forgives me.

When I die, He will take me home.

Thankful in All Things and Circumstances

~~~

“I have learned in whatever state I am, therewith to be content”

 ~

Focus on what you have, not on what you don’t have.

To have your needs met doesn’t mean there is money in the bank; rather you have something to eat, a roof over your head and clothes on your back.

God knows what you need; let Him define that for you.

 ~

Be anxious for nothing, be prayerful in everything

and be thankful in all things.

~~~
