clinging faith

Thursday, October 6, 2011

Dear Lord, we cling to Thee.

Yes, cling. Your faith shall be rewarded. Do you not know what it means to feel a little trusting hand in yours, to know a child's confidence?

Does that not draw out your Love and desire to protect, to care? Think what My Heart feels, when in your helplessness you turn to Me, clinging, desiring My Love and Protection.

Would you fail that child, faulty and weak as you are? Could I fail you? Just know it is not possible. Know all is well. You must not doubt. You must be sure. There is no miracle I cannot perform, nothing I cannot do. No eleventh hour rescue I cannot accomplish.
God Calling, October 6

When we adopted Grace, God was teaching us all about His grace. From the moment that she was placed in my arms, I experienced His supernatural, overflowing, abundant grace. He poured out more and more, and when we didn't think that there could be any left, there was. Our precious daughter was a generous Father's love gift to us. She was (and is) a symbol of His grace in our lives.

And now, our kind Father is teaching us what it means to have faith...true faith, faith that doesn't let go when the way seems unclear, faith that holds fast to His promises, faith that does not look for the easy way out.

Could I fail you?
He asks.
Just know that it is not possible.
It is not possible.

I am clinging to this truth.
I am clinging to His promises.
He will never fail me.
He will never fail you.
He will never fail our precious R. Faith.
(yes, her middle name will be Faith)

Dear Lord, we cling to Thee.

Thank you friend for sharing this from God Calling, what a beautiful picture, what a reassuring promise!

"Could I fail you? He asks. Just know that it is not possible. It is not possible."

As I read your words the Lord reminded me again of a promise in Habakkuk 6:2--

The revelation awaits an appointed time;
it speaks of the end
and will not prove false.
Though it linger, wait for it;
it will certainly come
and will not delay.

He is faithful! Praying believing that He will bring your sweet R. Faith, home forever!

Love you,

oh, and by the way....I love her middle name. Just yesterday I was thinking about a "Faith" I had just met this week, and I thought, "I really like the name Faith." Holy your thing!
