I do not ask that He must prove
His Word is true to me,
And that before I can believe
He first must let me see,
It is enough for me to know
It's true because He says its so;
On His unchanging Word I'll stand
And trust till I can understand.
I read this today in one of the devotionals that I read out of on a daily basis, & it just seemed to fitting to share it with others. It is a challenge every day for me to remember that God loves me even more than I love myself & that by faith I must hold fast to the promises my Lord has given to me. I have many family members that are not believers & I pray each day for them to be saved. By faith, I have to believe that one day this prayer will come into reality. I have many favorite verses but only a few that I call my life verses & one of them is Acts 16:31 "Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved-you AND YOUR HOUSEHOLD."
Just because we are empty nester's I still consider family members that are not living with me any longer to be part of my household, so I continue to claim victory over those who have still remained out side of the family of God but will one day be included. God works in His own time zone & His own manner, not the way I would. God has worked miracles in my family time & time again & continues to make changes in the lives of those I love daily including myself so by faith I choose to believe in the mighty works of a loving, giving, saving Lord to complete the work He has started in me & my family....
