Solid

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

 

You

are

my

Rock

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)
