…. they were unschooled, ordinary men …. they had been with Jesus …. the crippled man healed standing with them – Acts 4:13,14

Four days late … but He’s still on time

Timeless songs of faith & hope that lift the spirit, … rest the soul … in seasons when answers to prayers are slow, delayed… when looming storms gather … when the path seems unclear … songs birth from waiting on God

Though the fig tree does not bud
    and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
    and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
    and no cattle in the stalls,

18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
    I will be joyful in God my Savior.

19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength;
    he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
    he enables me to tread on the heights.
Habakkuk 3:17-19 (NIV)

John 11:5, 6, 17, 40 (NIV)
Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.
So when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days …
17 On his arrival, Jesus found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days.
40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”

Four days Late

 Be joyful in hope,
patient in affliction,
faithful in prayer.

Rejoice always,

pray continually,
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
(Romans 12:12, 1 Thessalonians 5:17-19)

While I’m Waiting

God’s been good

Psalm 138:8 (ESB)
The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me;
    your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever;

Philippians 1:6 (NKJV)
 being confident of this very thing,
that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it
until the day of Jesus Christ;

Trust His Heart

2 Corinthians 4:7-9 (NIV)
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed;
perplexed, but not in despair;

persecuted, but not abandoned;
struck down, but not destroyed.

Lay It Down

Does Jesus Care?

Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)
The Lord himself goes before you
and will be with you;
he will never leave you
nor forsake you.
Do not be afraid;
do not be discouraged

In time, on time, every time

Sometimes He Comes in the Clouds

Psalm 27:29,40 (NASB)
But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;
He is their strength in time of trouble.
The Lord helps them and delivers them; 

Psalm 118:2 (HCSB, NKJV)
For His faithful love to us is great;
the Lord’s faithfulness endures forever.

For His merciful kindness is great toward us,
And the truth of the Lord endures forever.
Praise the Lord!

I cannot believe that God would have told us to trust His name,
and have brought us this far to put us to shame.
– Hudson Taylor

 But as for me, Lord,
my prayer to You is for a time of favor.
In Your abundant, faithful love, God,
answer me with Your sure salvation.
Psalm 69:13 (HCSB)
