Five Minute Friday – Once Again

Under fiery trials my faith grew weak
It tottered and wobbled until it failed me

The Lord Whom I love and trust was obscured
By circumstances fast spinning out of control

There I stood facing the enemy defeated
Clothed in my weakness, not the Lord’s Armor

But then I cried out to the Lord my God
Omnipotence Who reigns on high

I lifted my eyes unto Your throne
From whence cometh my Help

The Holy Spirit rose up within me
Strengthened my heart with truth from God’s Word

Encouraged, I remembered God’s faithfulness
His deliverance in times past, which is always on time

For God is always faithful
Though I may fail Him, He will NEVER fail me

The Lord Jesus has a firm grasp on me
Once again, in confidence I stand for He will NEVER let me go

Even though it’s Saturday I wanted to participate in Lisa-Jo Baker’s Five MinuteFriday writing challenge.  Head over to her website “Lisa Jo Baker Tales from a Gypsy Mama”.  Be sure to read some of the entries from other writers.  I can promise you that you will be blessed.

Hi Denise, Andrea, Martha, Wanda and Lauren.

It's so good to meditate on the goodness of the Lord. I can't imagine doing life without Him.

Andrea and Martha, pleased to meet you...I'm going to check out your blogs.

Lauren, the picture was taken at our church. On the hill above where our church sits we have a cross that is lit up at night. I've taken many a picture of the cross in all the different seasons. I never grow tired of seeing it. I was looking at some of the pictures you have on your site...they are beautiful! I especially love the pictures with scripture.

Susan; powerful verses that remind us we never outgrow our need for God's untiring watch over our life.....we are safe! :)

Love and joyful blessings,

Picture a Day - My Little Friend in Brenham

Recently, we were able to travel to an area that was new to us...Brenham, Texas.  It's about an hour east of Austin.  Such beautiful...
