Welcome to In "Other" Words Tuesdays. This week Loni from Writing Canvas is hosting with an awesome quote!
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." ~ Isaiah 55:8-9 (NIV)
"The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." ~ Psalm 34:18 (NIV)
"Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O LORD, you preserve both man and beast." ~ Psalm 36:5-6 (NIV)
God is on His throne. He is Sovereign. It's enough knowing that He is able and that He doesn't have to explain Himself to me. I trust Him because He is loving, faithful, and just.
I know that He was, is and will be forever. His ways are so holy and pure. He is beyond my comprehension yet so close that He dwells within my heart.
Whatever He does, I can be sure He acts with love and compassion.
"He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD." ~ Psalm 112:7 (NIV)
Father, just because I cannot see the outcome of things, I do know You are at work. I trust You and I have faith in You. I can continue serving You and praising You as I seek to do You will in the lives of those You have blessed me to be a part of. Not having a clue as to what You are doing doesn't mean I don't trust You. I will not be moved from loving You or having faith in You. I believe every word You've given us through the Bible and cling to the promises You share. I will proclaim Your wonderful deeds and miracles and continue to ask for prayer for the things You have yet to work in or are perhaps working in and I don't see it yet. Father, open the eyes to my heart and let me see what You want me to see. Nothing more, nothing less. Most of all, help my faith continue to grow. May it never be stagnant and may it never wane. I really seem to be going through a growing spell right now and I love how close to You I'm coming. Bring me even closer, Lord, and please don't let me veer off the path. Thank You so much for Jesus, the author and finisher of my faith. In His Name, Amen.
