Enduring Faith

September 5, 2018

How long must I wait? Will you forget me forever? How long will you turn your face away from me? Psalm 13:1

Jesus sets a race before me – one that requires endurance.

To build endurance, I must wait and endure.

  • Circumstances I don’t like.
  •  Relationships that press but don’t crush.
  • Painful past.
  • Dreams turned to dust.
  • Hope on hold.
Faith perfecting tools in Holy Hands.

Master Carpenter.

Death conqueror.

He endured the cross while despising the shame.

He tells me not to grow weary.

A harvest of blessing is coming.

Don’t give up.

He hears my cry.

In His Word I hope.

Grace of God.

Blazing fire.

My hope is in You, Lord.

Hope and shield.

Mount Zion, the city of the living God.

Heavenly Jerusalem.

God justly judges.

Mediator sits to the right.

Mercy’s seat.

Heaven’s enrollment.

Removal of shakable things.

God of love, consuming fire.

Winnowing fork clears the threshing floor.

Wheat gathered, chaff burned.

Offer what I have – all of me.

Living sacrifice.

When I come with humble heart and outstretched arms, He meets me in the mess. Click To Tweet

The mess of circumstance.

The mess of my heart.

The mess of me.

Dirty hands raised in worship honor Him.

He doesn’t care where I’ve been, He cares where I’m going.

Robes for rags.

Life for death.

Love everlasting.

Bread of life, living water.

Water that restores, renews.

Soul hungry no more.

Multitude of sins covered by love.

Love that gives, breaks, bleeds.

Love that keeps no record of wrongs.

It doesn’t point fingers, instead opens wide to deliver and embrace.

Never lets go.

Gives new life.

Second chances.

Third, fourth, fifth.

Called out of darkness.

Once sin’s slave.

Now His Own.

I'm a free spirit. I hate rules and legalism. I love art and nature, music, the beach and dogs. I like to garden, take pictures and read. I tend to speak my mind and have a rip-the-band-aid -off approach to life. (Brace yourself, this might hurt.)
