We are hard on ourselves sometimes. We have distorted ideas of our worth, if we do not act in the way we perceive as right we feel we have failed. I am happy our Lord knows all our weaknesses and does not measure our success by our actions but by His work in our behalf.
You may feel your faith has faltered and your pace has slowed,
But in truth you are walking forward on streets of gold.
Your love you wonder is it as strong as before?
Is it as strong and true for your Lord?
When life throws darts and hits hard inside,
You know where to run to hide.
Faith is not always showy in its display.
It does not always know exactly what to say.
It does not always run wild and free;
Sometimes faith crawls on heart’s knees.
Faith’s test- Are you God’s child? On Him do you depend?
If a negative word is said against His name do you defend?
When trouble and trials come do you believe for God’s best?
If yes to all these questions you pass faith’s test.
Love, faith, and hope join together from time to time.
When they do joy, peace and assurance are also close by.
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is,
and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
