Living By Faith - TSMSS

We live by faith, not by sight.

2 Corinthians 5:7 TNIV


It is our choice...trust in the Word of God and what He promises us, or be deceived by what we see with our earthly eyes.

If you do not stand firm in your faith,
you will not stand at all.'

Isaiah 7:9 TNIV


It is our choice...believe on the Solid Rock, or sink into the sand.

Get together and make plans,

but you will fail because God is with us.

Isa 8:10 CEV


It is our choice...to be confident the Lord will win the battle, or be defeated by the enemy.

Which do you choose today?







LIVING BY FAITH


I care not today what the morrow may bring,


If shadow or sunshine or rain,


The Lord I know ruleth o'er everything,


And all of my worries are vain.


Refrain:


Living by faith in Jesus above,


Trusting, confiding in His great love;


From all harm safe in His sheltering arm,


I'm living by faith and feel no alarm.


Though tempests may blow and the storm clouds arise,


Obscuring the brightness of life,


I'm never alarmed at the overcast skies—


The Master looks on at the strife.


I know that He safely will carry me through,


No matter what evils betide;


Why should I then care though the tempest may blow,


If Jesus walks close to my side.


Our Lord will return for His loved ones some day,


Our troubles will then all be o'er;


The Master so gently will lead us away,


Beyond that blest heavenly shore.

What a wonderful post and blog! I was lured here through Christy Rose's blog because of the title. We used to sing "Hallelujah Anyhow" at the church we attended before our move and I love the lyrics. What wonderful insights you share! Keep writing--we are listening and God's moving.
