Keep On

Have you ever felt like you just didn’t have anything left?  I was feeling like this lately when I heard this song.  It spoke to me in so many different ways!  I realized I’d been putting other things ahead of time with God and what he might be teaching me.  I was also just worn out from some daily struggles and feeling depressed.  This song encouraged me and reminded me to give my worries and sadness to God.  In our own strength, we’re not able.  But Got is able.  I hope in difficult times you remember to draw near to Him.  You are not alone.

I’ll Keep On by NF featuring Jeremiah Carlson

Lift up your eyes

Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens:

Who created all these?

He who brings out the starry host one by one

and calls forth each of them by name.

Because of his great power and mighty strength,

not one of them is missing.

Isaiah 40:26 NIV

Drawing of night sky

I came across this Bible verse recently, and it made me think of the song Your Love Oh Lord by Third Day.  Something about hearing that song gives me peace.  You can listen to the song here:

Some of the lyrics, from Psalm 36:

And I will lift my voice to worship you my king

And I will find my strength in the shadow of your wings

Your Love Oh Lord reaches to the heavens

Your faithfulness stretches to the skies

May you find strength in the shadow of His wings today, and above all the peace that only He can give.

Are you walking by faith?

…for we walk by faith, not by sight. 

2 Corinthians 5:7 (ESV)

Today I wanted to share the song “Walk By Faith” by Jeremy Camp.

He sings

Well I will walk by faith

Even when I cannot see

 Have you ever felt that way, that you’re walking along a rocky path, but you can’t see one foot ahead of you?  I’ll admit, actually, I’m feeling like that at times right now.  I’m trying to figure out what steps to take next, and honestly I don’t know what to do sometimes.  The path that I think I want doesn’t seem to be the path God’s leading me on.  But I have to remember that God knows me better than I know myself, and unlike me, He can see in the dark.   Most of all, since Jesus loves me enough to die on the cross for me, I need to trust Him.

God, thank-you for your guidance along this sometimes dark and scary path.  Please protect me from harm and guide my steps.  Thank-you for the gift of faith.

“Walk By Faith”

Has your heart broken down?

“Turn Around” by Matt Maher

Love the lyrics to this song…and it rocks!

Has your heart broken down?  He sings, “Love won’t take away the pain, but don’t be afraid, ’cause it will never walk away.”

God may not take away the difficulties in life, but He will not leave us.  If we call upon Him, He will be there with us through it all.
