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
and 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!
Psalms 119: 129-130
” Your testimonies are wonderful;
Therefore my soul keeps them.
The entrance of Your words gives light;
It gives understanding to the simple.”
Deborah Ann Belka
