You would think that the older you get and the more you studied the biblle the easier it would be to swim those giant waves that want to sink you when the storms of this life come calling. Some days I navigate the peaks and valley's of those waves just fine and others I take on so much water it feels like I'm about to drown. In God's Word he tells us that we can't live by our feelings if we are to survive life's storms we must live our lives by God's truth. A courageous calling by any standard but it's an essential lesson if we want our walk to be a testimony that Christ can use to reflect himself to others.
God's Word God's Truth
Your Word my Lord is the truest mirror of my soul
Reflecting gaping imperfections and traces of pure gold
Caught up in the undertow my fallen nature sweeps me out to sea
Guilt and despair surface on the waves and my shame won't let me be
But your Word my Lord is a lighthouse showing me the way ahead
Slowly it tows me back and tells me what the Lord has said
Your Word my Lord has restored my faith and placed me on solid ground
And filled my heart with your sweet grace the truest love I've found
Now safe upon the shore I sit, not where I was before and others start to see
The Word in the truest light, a gift from God, that can set the captives free
