Take My Faith

1/12/2019 5:17:00 AM BY Tyler Robertson

Proverbs 18:24 (NIV) – A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who stays closer than a brother.

Popularity is a fickle mistress.  She comes and goes quickly. Sometimes in the night she steals away or may just leave you right before your eyes.  Much can come to ruin with “friends”.  We all desire to be loved, even those who say they don’t care. If you look at their eyes, you will know who they rely on.

Man (myself included) has a track record a billion miles long of letting God down.  Time and again we stumble, we walk away, we curse, we lie, and the list goes on.  Yet God doesn’t leave us alone or forsake us.  He promised that.  Even unto the end of the age.

I will speak for myself and say that as much as I long for a continued, deep relationship with the Lord, sometimes I want the company of my fellow man.  God allows this and brings into our paths men and women that, in our moments of weakness and darkness, seem to pull us to our feet and get us through the mire.  That is the Grace of God.  In my experience, these men and women demonstrate faith and its seems that when I can’t muster any of my own, their complete confidence in the Lord bolsters my resolve.

I was given the below psalm as a cry of my heart to be that kind of husband, father, brother and mentor to others.  Yet even when I may fail, Jesus fulfills every single promise.  Keep your eyes on Him and in the darkness you will see the Light.  

Oh my loves, I hear your ups and downs.

I will walk beside you as the fire rains around.

As your dreams seem to lick with the flames

And the ash floats on the air, I will have the faith to cover you.

 

He is your Shepherd and I am your brother and sister.

He leads you and I am step for step with you.

When your faith wanes with the setting sun,

My faith will lift you on the rays of the moon.

 

Stumble and fall, lay down and crawl.

I will be in the trenches with you.

The Rock gives us steps

I will give you my hand to lift you up.

 

Your faith will get you everywhere.

When you seem to run low I have some for you.

I give it to you freely to give you a new breath.

I promise my faith will see us both through.

 

I have shed blood and shed my tears

With every hurt you’ve taken.

I give you my faith to hold your bandages

And bring a transfusion of His loving Grace.

 

You won’t walk down dark halls without me.

You won’t leap without me to catch you.

He builds our faith and He builds our lives

Without faith we have no hope to please Him.

 

Love is really REALLY hard (but totally worth it)

1/5/2019 8:05:00 PM BY Zach Hunter

       How often do we use the word love? The answer is all the time; like the word awesome we have lost the true meaning of the word and turned it into a catch-all for positive feelings for something. According to Paul in 1st Corinthians 4-8 “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not
dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
       Looking at that list we can see that love is a good thing, a great thing, amazing even. However HOLY CRAP BATMAN is that hard to pull off all at once let alone all the time. How often have we been impatient with people who we love? Angry? What about envy? Do we not often wish we had something we know someone else has? Don’t
we remember the stuff people did to wrong us more easily than what they did in love for us? Even with the ones we love are we able to always put them first or don’t we sometimes put ourselves first?
       This is further evidenced by our relationships; for those of us who have been in a loving relationship we know that it can be very rewarding but it takes a lot of hard work. As a species we tend to put love on a pedastal (see every love song/story/movie/cliche’ of love winning) and yet this thing does not come naturally to us (see hard work sentence).
After all we tend to be selfish, self serving, angry, proud, envious species who won’t let go of the crap from our past, the opposite of love.
       Of course it is because of our nature as sinful beings that love is so important. Looking at the list of what love is we can see a way to be better people. If everyone let their actions be driven by love instead of sin the world would be a much better place. While it is very unlikely that everyone is going to embrace this way of thinking we ourselves can make a difference by doing this. We are in fact commanded to do so by Jesus “Love they neighbor”; Also important to note is the fact that as Paul points out that without love, no matter how amazing we seem, we are nothing.
      Finally I want to point out that love is the very reason we have hope and salvation. If not for love God would have had no reason to send Jesus to come and die for us. If it were not for love Jesus, when he was frustrated with the crowds and even his own disciples could have just said, “Nope, forget it, you aren’t worth it, I am out.”;Thankfully God had such love for us that he was willing to send Jesus to die for us and Jesus had such love for us that he died so that we be saved and not condemned. Love is important and central to God and to our relationships both with Him and with others.
