Seeking Faith ~ Verses . . .


This Walk of Faith

I walk the walk of faith,
hand in hand with my Lord.
And in my heart His Word,
I have put away and stored.

I trust and I believe,
He is always here with me.
Though at times it is dark,
His light helps me to see.

When I falter in my belief,
and I’m not sure of the way.
I rely on Him to be with me,
and to hear me when I pray.

I know He’s always next to me,
and I’m never all alone.
Even though there are times,
when I feel I’m on my own.

This walk of faith is simple,
but sometimes I make it hard.
For when I take away the trust,
my hopes get somewhat jarred.

I know I must be faithful,
to walk this walk with Him.
For where there is not a doubt,
His light won’t fade or dim.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding.
in all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths.”

My Life Was Made To Please You


My life was made to praise You,
to lift You up in song
my soul was made to worship You,
to glorify You all day long.

My mind was made to seek You,
to claim Your perfect peace
my heart was made to find You
to know a love that’ll never cease.

My ears were made to hear You,
to listen for Your quiet voice
my eyes were made to see You
to be a witness to Your rejoice.

My feet were made to follow You,
to walk in Your very steps
my legs were made to go after You,
to follow in Your concepts.

My mouth was made to declare You,
to tell the universe about Your love
my lips were made to confess You,
to let all know You are my God above.

My life was made to please You,
to lift You up in song
my soul was made so You’d be seen
amongst the world’s throng.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 4

“Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren,
and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye
have received of us how ye ought to walk
and to please God, so ye would abound more
and more.”

Hello


Hello, to all of you who seek the Lord.

Isn’t seeking the Lord exciting? Isn’t something that gives you a warm and cozy feeling? It does me. When I walk away after spending time seeking the Lord, I feel joyful, I feel like the weight of the world has been taking off me. I walk away knowIng  that EVERYTHING is in His control.

One of my favorite Bible verses on seeking the Lord is Psalm 27:8 “When You said, “Seek My face, “My heart said to You, “Your face, LORD, I will seek.”

To seek God’s face, to get a close look at Him and to see who He really is, can only be done when you read and study the Bible. When I do this, I come away with so much more knowledge of His wonder and power and feel so blessed that I have the opportunity to personally know my Lord and Savior.

Won’t you please seek the Lord with me, together we can find out all kinds of new and exciting things!
