Deceitful Eyes – Hebrews 11:1

Deceitful Eyes – Hebrews 11:1

My eyes
Deceive this heart
This mind
Fills the soul
With it’s lies
All I have left
Is this faith
Confidence
In my hope
And assurance
For what is not seen
When the eyes

Never What We See – Hebrews 11:1

Never What We See – Hebrews 11:1

The blind will see with hope
They will find their way
In darkness or in light
It’s our faith that leads the way
Never what we see
That is not the hope
The hope that faith in our Lord will bring
So close your eyes and pray
And as the words flood the mind
See the images of what is to come
For He is faithful, He is just
He who holds a promise for all of us

Verse of the Day – Hebrews 11:1

Hebrews 11:1

Hebrews 11:1

After one of those day yesterday where things were going very wrong and nothing seemed to go the way I planned, it would be easy to fall on my knees and ask when this will all turn around and finally start become what I have prayed for.  But I know that faith requires patience and trust in the Lord promise, His timing will be perfect and for now I keep hoping and keep going.

CORNERSTONE by DAY OF FIRE
All of the ground is sinking sand
A doubting maze of desert land
Where darkness rules the heart of man
Til’ the sun shines light on him

Lord of all,
Show you’re strong
All my needs they fall

Be a cornerstone
Be a cornerstone
Be a rock, higher than I
Be my fortress wall
Be a foundation for all,
My cornerstone

The building’s swaying in the wind
The towers crumble down again
This certainly will be the end
Of them not built on him

Lord of all
Show your strong
All my needs they fall

Be a cornerstone
Be a cornerstone
Be a rock, higher than I
Be my fortress wall
Be a foundation for all,
My cornerstone

You
You are the builder of my heart
You
Held me together from the start

Be a cornerstone
Be a cornerstone
Be a rock, higher than I
Be my fortress wall
Be a foundation for all,
My cornerstone

Be a cornerstone
Be a cornerstone
Be a rock, higher than I
Be my fortress wall
Be a foundation for all,
My cornerstone

 

Sometimes I Still Hear With Blind Ears

No, you have read the title correctly, I do mean blind ears, trust me as I try to explain.

This was from a line that came to me this morning, a line of poetry that was going around my head as I walked to Church, the problem is I can’t remember the rest because this line had me perplexed.  I was intrigued by the line, what did I mean, did I get it wrong, surely I meant blind eyes or deaf ears, but as I reasoned with it, I worked out I was right, I meant blind ears, I had them once before and from time to time I get them again.

When I was struggling, when work was scarce, money tight and my alcohol problem was beginning to take a grip that I couldn’t control, life was slowly falling apart around me but I was oblivious, just stuck in a never ending cycle that I couldn’t get out of.

But now when I look back at those years and what was going on in my life, I can identify times when I now know that God was speaking to me, through music, through Victoria and through people who came into my life that I now count as friends and counsellors.  But at the time I didn’t recognise it, I just carried on with my descending cycle into darkness.

It’s not that I didn’t hear, I wasn’t deaf, the messages were there, but I was in that place where words weren’t enough, I had to see also, if I heard about God and Jesus, well I wanted to see it before I believed, that was my opinion, I had to see it, words alone were not enough and as my ears couldn’t see, I ignored it and carried on with my descent.

Since I turned to God, accepted Jesus as my saviour and turned this life around, I have had some profound experiences with God, experiences where He spoke directly into my life, on all those occasions I didn’t need to see, I didn’t need eyes to experience God, just belief.

But from time to time I still find I need to see to believe what I hear, I still have blind ears, my brain won’t process it without viewing it first, yet I know what I have experienced, but still I find it hard to believe and hold faith sometimes, probably more so in the last few months.

So I know It’s time to get back to keep praying about the things in my life and keep believing and having in faith that those prayers will be answered, not in my time, but in His.

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

BELIEVE by MAINSTAY
I don’t know if I still have
the strength to get up again
I don’t know if I can face my own reflection
Jesus, take this heart that feels
So cold again, and make it new
I hold this hope inside
that you’ll never leave me

When all around me starts to fall,
And when my faith it seems so small
Even in my darkest hour, I will believe

I don’t know how I could turn
my back and walk away
All I really want is for your love to hold me
Jesus, take this heart and make it whole again
I know you’ll never leave me

When all around me starts to fall,
And when my faith it seems so small
Even in my darkest hour, I will believe

Even if the sun begins to fall,
Even when I feel nothing at all
Even if I’m all alone, I will believe

When all around me starts to fall,
And when my faith it seems so small
Even in my darkest hour, I will believe
