I don’t want

a circumstantial faith


I want a solid faith


Up & Down

Up & Down

Down & Up


That wavering

is a rollercoaster

I don’t want to be on


Jesus, help me

keep my eyes on You

and on Your promises


In the storm

In the desert

In the fire

In the parties

of life


And let my confidence

be unshaken


For circumstances

don’t change who You are







– Susie Stewart


If our definition of success is solely based on outcome, we’ll live like we’re on a never-ending bungee jump.  We’re up.  We’re down.  We’re swayed by failure or buoyed by success.  We’re left hanging until someone reels us in with a word of praise.

– Suzanne Eller


So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.

– Hebrews 4:16 (NIV)


…for the Lord is your security. He will keep your foot from being caught in a trap.

– Proverbs 3:26 (NLT)


But the Master, God, has something to say to this: “Watch closely. I’m laying a foundation in Zion, a solid granite foundation, squared and true. And this is the meaning of the stone: A TRUSTING LIFE WON’T TOPPLE.

I’ll make justice the measuring stick and righteousness the plumb line for the building. A hailstorm will knock down the shantytown of lies, and a flash flood will wash out the rubble.

– Isaiah 28:16,17 (MSG)
