This Journey of Faith.


This Journey of Faith…



This journey of faith is a long arduous pilgrimage…


one that we traverse blindly…

through the wilderness…across rough terrain …

over mountains that abscured the view of what awaits on the other side.


This journey of faith requires planting in the dark…

causing us to doubt the SON would shine…

that light would come…

cries flow from a breaking heart…

 doubting these tears are really being gathered in a bottle.



This journey of faith can be a leap…

one that sends us free falling…spinning…

desperately grabbing for something to hold onto…

but all slips through the grip…

until  Christ alone we cling.  


This journey of faith restores our vision…


the only way to Joy.


This journey of faith keeps us traveling…

until that day…

we hear God say, “Enter into my Sabbath rest”…

enter the land where the milk and honey flows….

Because all God’s promises are yes and Amen!!!


“I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until that day. 2Tim. 1:12

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Gal.6:9

“For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:6

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Heb.11:1

  7. Ro,

    i loved the land that flows with milk and honey...yes, what a glorious, comforting thought. i really enjoyed all the verses. this faith journey really is a journey that obscures our view just enough that we have to completely trust Him, isnt it?

    love and blessings,

    Nacole
