Far Reach into Tomorrow By Brenda Drake

Our dreams are like seeds. We need to look ahead in faith to see the fruit of our planted seed of hope.  At times I clearly see ahead but when I get impatient my vision of harvest disappears from my sight. Lord help me to dream Your dreams for me.

Far Reach into Tomorrow

A far reach into my future by faith I see,
The reality of what now is only a dream to me.
I see the results of hard work and prayers have paid well.
I see all the future potential successful stories I can tell.
As I gaze ahead looking through eyes faith filled,
I see a profit of new souls who walk in God’s will.
Each move that I make
Is known by God and each step of the way.
Finds a certain progress I cannot see.
Moving toward the exalted future prepared for me.
I love my Lord and how I marvel in His ways;
At His faithfulness I will sing His praise.
A far reach into tomorrow by faith I see,
All that is now only a dream to me.
My God is with me now and He walks ahead too,
So I will enjoy today and watch to see my dreams come true.

Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Faith sees Beauty where Ashes are Still by Brenda Drake

We are surrounded on every side with the troubling circumstances of the day.  It is wise to be informed but with the conflicting information swirling about; less is more.   When our hearts are overwhelmed and worry fills our day; it is past time to get into the World of God to allow God’s wisdom and assurance to restore our ability to see with eyes of faith instead of fear. It is such a joy when an almost impossible situation has lost it power over us.  The circumstances perhaps remain the same but the atmosphere has changed. Faith has filled our eyes with the promises in God’s Word.  For… we remember that nothing is impossible to our God!

Faith Sees Beauty where Ashes are still

Faith filled eyes choose to see,
Exactly what God’s Word says will be.
Circumstances are not held in thought for long;
For the pull of the Word of God within is too strong.
Minds are trained to turn away from lie and fraud,
And to place in high honor the Word of God.
Faith filled eyes see beauty where ashes are still;
For they know that the Word for them is fulfilled.
Faith filled eyes see the answer that will come,
Almost before their prayer requests are done.
Yes the one with faith filled eyes may dance and will sing,
As they agree with God’s Word praise is brought to Jesus their King.

Mark 9:23
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

Isaiah 61:3
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion,
to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning,
the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
that they might be called trees of righteousness,
the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.
