I Still Believe.

Scattered words and empty thoughts
seem to pour from my heart
I've never felt so torn before
seems I don't know where to start
but it's now that I feel Your grace falls like rain
from every fingertip, washing away my pain

I still believe in Your faithfulness
I still believe in Your truth
I still believe in Your holy word
even when I don't see, I still believe

Though the questions still fog up my mind
with promises I still seem to bear
even when answers slowly unwind
it's my heart I see You prepare
but its now that I feel Your grace fall like rain
from every finger tip, washing away my pain

The only place I can go is into your arms
where I throw to you my feeble prayers
in brokeness I can see that this was your will for me
Help me to know You are near

I feel like there are so many things that these words relate to in my life right now. I'm not even sure if i can write a blog about it, because the words above do such an amazing job expressing my heart.

Lord, help me know (live/believe/hear/see/feel) You are near.

Hi Cassie,
Great words of encouragemnet!!
the chorus says it all....we still believe even when we just don't's by faith. Faith is always one of those words that is hard to explain. He it's very important to the Christian Faith.
My mind is fogged also...yet I know that the fog will lift when I keep my eyes on Jesus. As you know not as simple as it sounds. Faith again.
Those arms of Jesus....ho how I long each day for his arms to bring the comfort that I long for.
You know Cass...your an amazing young lady. Thanks for making Jesus yours and living life to the fullest. Mom and I are .......not proud by blessed to call you our daughter. You rock my socks off! ( ust to let you know, I do't even know why I brought socks to Africa... what was I thinking??? it's hot here who needs socks. My toes love the freedom)

Hmmm.... great words of encouragement, Cass! Thanks... I think we all need encouragement to keep believing, whatever it's for, but to keep trusting that God is going to fulfill His promises, and though it linger, it will not delay, it will surely come! Bless you, my dear sister! I love you and am praying for you...

Love and hugs, Lou <><
