Hope

I haven’t posted in awhile!  I’ve actually been busy, which is good, mostly.  It’s a blessing to be busy, to have things you want to do and be able to do them.

Today I want to share the song “There Will Be A Day” by Jeremy Camp.  This is an answer to my previous post about tears.  It describes the hope we have, even during times of suffering, perhaps especially important when we’re suffering, of the life to come through Jesus.

This is actually a devotional video of Jeremy Camp speaking about his song.

 

One of the verses he mentions in the video is Romans 8:18.  I recommend reading the passage Romans 8:15-23 for context.

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.

Romans 8:18 (ESV)

Dear Lord, Please fill us with the hope you give us for the future.  Please help us to trust you, during good times and bad, and to keep in sight the life to come.  Give us your peace.

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.
