Faith-trouble






To know while circumstance deceives
Takes more than this mortality

To trust in God’s infinite grace
To rest in peace amidst life’s storm
Takes more than fingers can embrace  
Or fathom in this flesh-blood form

To reach without tangible touch
To love beyond regard for cost
To give without knowing how much
To make God our sole soul-boast

…takes more than we can prove with might
Tests every Promise we have claimed

Living Hope
 ...who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ;…1 Pet. 1:5-7
