The world fades deeper into grey
No sun to shine on the horizon, so low
The soul feels empty
Bleak vistas through the windows of slow moving train
Day blends into night, into day
Yet will I rejoice?
Rejoice in despair?
Celebrate in agony?
For while the world may not care
His love is everywhere
All around and about and surrounding you
Faith will see you through
Yet though You destroy me
I will praise You
Though my love seems so far away
Faith hides in the recesses of my mind
Through the hopeless and the heartless
Faith can get you through
Through the pain and the sorrow
When you can't see tomorrow
And the horizon begins again to fade...
Shades of grey
In a world of black and white
Yet you are never alone
Don't listen to the whispering in your ear
Itching to hear the worst
Because you were bought at a price
The roaring lion must relent
His lies fall to deaf ears
When the faithful stand
Be still, be still
Revelation will be yours
Be still and know
That your faith will see you through
Hold onto the word that has been given to you
To that deposit in your heart
You have been sealed by the Spirit
So do not listen to the idle chatter
Designed to make you doubt
Did He not tell you that if you would just believe
You would see the glory of God?
So easily led astray
So easily ensnared
Your eyes will falter
Your ears betray you
Life is choices and we must choose
What to believe and embrace
But your lying eyes and faulty intuition
Will not be of help to you
Only faith, your measure of faith
Will see you fall or see you through
The promises of God are not void
They are mighty in truth and limitless beyond the capacity of imagination
His timing will test you though
Our patience runs so thin, so fast
His ways are not our ways
Yet we seemingly cannot wait for Him
We cry out for our promise!
Our selfishness prevails
We cry out for our deliverance!
And doubt the truths we already know
Yet will not God bring about justice for His chosen ones?
But will there be faith
Will there be faith on earth
When He returns?
Destroy me oh God and I will still believe
You see all time
Yet I cannot get through this instant
You see the end of all things
Yet I get stuck in a mere moment
Seemingly unable to move on without the mountain being removed for me
Waves crashing around me
The distracting howl of the wind
Put your eyes back on Him
Put His word back on your lips
Let the seed grow again within you
Your faith will see you through.
