The Believers Life

Storms Will Subside

When I’m feeling left out I look in
To see Jesus is right there with me
I’m never alone
When My Saviors along
Always in Him I will be

When I’m feeling down I look up
To see Jesus is looking at me
The smile on His face
Shows me His grace
This is where I want to be

When I’ve lost my way I look back
I see Jesus is running to me
I give Him the lead
He knows what I need
Behind Him is where I must be

When I do not know I look lost
My faith seems a long way from me
His word will I seek
His truth I will speak
My faith will rise up in me

When I might be faced with some trouble
His mercy is all I need
His love will abide
Even storms will subside
I know Jesus is right there with me

In Christ Alone

I’ll lift my hand
I’ll lift my voice
In Christ alone
I will rejoice

I’ll bow my head
I’ll bend my knee
In Christ alone
I’ll always be

In Him all sin will be erased
In Him no enemy escapes
In Him all victory is mine
In Him I’ll gladly lose my life

For He is my rock, my sword, my shield
To Christ alone I gladly yield
All of my strength and soul and mind
Giving my heart my life I find

He’ll take me places
Yet unknown
I’ll gladly follow
Christ alone

Why do I even think about dwelling anywhere else but in His presence. Look at this world we are living in right now. We have a virus that is scaring the masses on one side, and violence in our streets on the other. We have disheartening stories about businesses being destroyed and lives being taken for a cause that should b e fought in the individual hearts of men, not in the chambers of our government. This is not a government issues. It’s a heart issue. I heard someone say to me the other day that it would work out best if everyone would just treat people with respect, the way they want to be treated. Now where have I heard that before? The words of Christ ring true. His promises never fail.

I need to spend time in His presence. I need to meditate on the words He spoke. I need to lift up His name in praise. I need to spend time on my knees in prayer, praying for my brothers and sisters in this country who just can’t seem to get it right. I need to pray for government leaders, whether I agree with their policies or not, that they will find the will of God for this great country of ours. I need to allow the Holy Spirit to guide my every step. When I do these things and more, I am walking in Christ. Life will be so much better then!

18 “‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.
