…. they were unschooled, ordinary men …. they had been with Jesus …. the crippled man healed standing with them – Acts 4:13,14
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)
5 Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.
6 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,

2 Corinthians 4:7-9 (NIV)
7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.

9 persecuted, but not abandoned;
struck down, but not destroyed.
Lay It Down
Does Jesus Care?
Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)

and will be with you;

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.
