Faith Always

Do you ever feel torn about what be to do? You pray for answers and guidance but you don’t see, feel or hear an answer. That doesn’t mean nothing’s happening. I believe God is there fighting your battles. It may seem hope, or you’re feeling angry and in distress. I know right now I’ve been feeling all that. I had trouble understanding how anything good could come out of this. Yet God has been using this trial for my benefit. I’ve met some awesome new people, and pre existing relationships with people have been deepened. I’ve also been growing in my faith, renewing myself confidence and the passion I have for life.

Here’s some songs and verses I pray that will help you as well.

I first found this song on the radio before it was even out on cd. When my dad was in the hospital and having complications during a bypass sugery. Today, my mom sent it to me just when I needed it for my own battle. Music helps, especially praise and worship!!!

📖Bible Verses:

✞Philippians 4:13 (TLV)
I can do all things through Messiah who strengthens me.

✞ 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

✞Joshua 1:9 (NKJV)
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

✞ John 10:10 (NRSV)
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

✞James 1:1-7 (NLT) Faith and Endurance

Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing. If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. 6 But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.

✞ Matthew 6:25-34 (NLT)“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God[a] above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

Rejoice in the Lord, Always!

It is important that we maintain Joy in this time of trouble and stress. I do not know one person who does not have something going on right now. Be it financial troubles, health, job security, or something else, every one is going through something. I really wish I could say this was not a fact, but it is. Therefore one is in a bad mood.

I can not begin to explain how hard it has been for me to keep joy these past few months. Every time I would find Joy, something would come up, happen, or attack my thoughts. I have had to make a physical and mental attempt to keep the joy. And that is not an easy task. Especially with so many “What is Next” questions are hanging around.

We can not live in fear! “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 Nothing gets done in fear. We need to walk in faith. There is power in our faith, in our words, in trusting God. Joshua chapter 6”By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.” Hebrews 11:30

Have we forgotten that God is all powerful! That he takes care of his children and their needs? Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who Gives me strength. John 10:11 I am the Good Shepard. The Good Shepard watches over his sheep.

If God can protect Joseph and make him a King. Genesis chapter 30 – Exodus chapter 1; he can deliver Shadrack, Mishah, and Abendigo from a Fiery furnace, with out a burnt hair or a stench. Daniel 3:17; He can take down the walls of Jericho. Hebrews 11:30; He can save Paul and Silas from prison. Acts 16: 25-26 and Raise people from the dead. John 11:43. What can he not do for you???

Here are some songs you can sing, when you need to find some Joy, along with a few more verses.

Philippians 3:1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.

Deuteronomy 28:47 Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;

Job 8:19 Behold, this is the joy of his way, and out of the earth shall others grow.

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

Psalm 118:24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.


I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart.
Where? Down in my heart!
Where? Down in my heart!
I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart,
down in my heart
down in my heart to stay.

And if the Devil doesn’t like it he can sit on a tack.
OUCH
Sit on a tack.
OUCH
Sit on a tack.
And if the Devil doesn’t like it he can sit on a tack
Sit on a tack today.

Rejoice in the Lord always
And again I say rejoice
Rejoice in the Lord always
And again I say rejoice
Rejoice, rejoice
And again I say rejoice
Rejoice, rejoice
And again I say rejoice

Come bless the Lord Come bless the Lord Draw near to worship Christ the Lord And bless His name His holy name Declaring He is good O that men would praise Him O that men would praise Him Rejoice in the Lord always And again I say, and again I say Rejoice in the Lord always

And again I say, and again I say Rejoice! Come bless the Lord Come bless the Lord Draw near to worship Christ the Lord And bless His name His holy name Declaring He is good O that men would praise Him O that men would praise Him Rejoice in the Lord always And again I say, and again I say Rejoice in the Lord always And again I say, and again I say Rejoice!

And again I say, and again I say Rejoice! Come bless the Lord Come bless the Lord Draw near to worship Christ the Lord And bless His name His holy name Declaring He is good O that men would praise Him O that men would praise Him Rejoice in the Lord always And again I say, and again I say Rejoice in the Lord always And again I say, and again I say Rejoice!
