Victorious Eyes Of Faith

Victorious Eyes Of Faith 150 150 Debbie Harris

With victorious eyes of faith, A valley becomes a place to find a lily fair. A darkened night bids us fix our eyes on the bright and morning star And thus becomes heavens stair. A trial becomes a chariot of fire to the cooling river of  life through prayer. A test becomes a stepping stone to eternal treasures unseen. A tortuous thorn becomes an eternal diadem. A heartache healed becomes a triumphant mountaintop. A failure becomes a heavenly transport Into the arms of a loving, forgiving, Father, Friend, And King. With victorious eyes of faith, Our Savior bids us rise above it all For it is with His eyes we see that The earthly weed becomes the heavenly rose And the worldly rose becomes the heavenly weed. For with victorious eyes of faith Our heightened souls Like a light filled cathedral can rise above it all. For nothing is as it seems!   “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 (KJV)

I Run To Thee My Savior! I Run To Thee!!

I Run To Thee My Savior! I Run To Thee!! 150 150 Debbie Harris

Every day with each and every need, care, worry, fear, sin, doubt, and despair, I joyfully run to meet with Christ, my Savior. And the King of Kings joyfully delights in me being there. The Creator of the universe every single time I approach the golden throne room of  beauty and grace, lovingly, joyfully, and eagerly awaits to hear each and every prayer. Oh how our Savior delights in pursuing and forming personal relationships with each and every blood- bought Cross-delivered royal heir! And so I run to Him often with all my needs and all my cares. I escape to His endless, unconditional love. I escape to His limitless and changeless kindness. I escape to His tender compassion. I escape to His divine and ceaseless forgiveness. I escape to His mountainous gratuitous grace. I escape to His exquisite beauty. I escape to His cross-given righteousness. I escape to His omnipotent and bountiful strength. I escape to His inerrant, unchanging words of life giving truth  to see how to live soberly and righteously in this ever darkening world! And every day with each and every need, care, worry, fear, sin, doubt, and despair, every day I joyfully run to thee my God. Every minute I seek thy dove like still small voice. Every moment I run to thee my Savior. Every day, yes, every moment I run to thee. I run to thee. so that I can be sculpted by your light , love, and majestic care!…
