My Faith Still Remains

“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’” Isaiah 41:10

Linking up this week for five-minute Friday: Here

Honestly, there are prayers I have prayed that have still not been answered. Not visibly that is.

There are biblical promises claimed that have not come to fruition.

I’ve waited on the Lord.

Fell on my face before him.

I have reminded him what his word said, yet the needle has not moved in the direction I desired. Sometimes it seems He has moved it backward a few notches

The situation has not changed but my faith still remains.

I trust God even when I can’t see his hand.

I am not dismayed, discouraged or downcast. I know God to be a good, good father who cares about the things that concern me.

I know that his word will not return unto him void. He will do what he said he will do!

 In the meantime, he will strengthen me with his right hand. The hand he used to scoop out the valleys and stack the mountains. The same hand with which he flung the stars and moon in space. That God!

The all-powerful God. The God who is still working behind the scenes on my behalf. The God who in the fullness of time will reveal his handiwork. And, I will stand in awe of Him.

Until then, I still trust him.

Thought to consider: Have you been praying for a long time about the same problem. Does it feel like your praying has been in vain? Be encouraged. God heard you and he cares. Only God knows when the time is right to reveal his masterpiece. Trust him still.

Prayer: Lord, we are weary. Our lips are chapped from moving them repeatedly in prayer. Our chest hurts from the pain of our situations and circumstances. We thought it would be different by now. Yet, we wait. We wait on you to see what you will do. We trust you still. Strengthen us with your right hand so we will not fall. Help us to hold on until you move. In Jesus name, Amen

Hi, I'm Calvonia. I'm so glad you stopped by. I'm a small town girl with old school ways. So come on in, share of cup of hot tea and a real conversation. I've shared my life with my husband, lover and friend, Moses for most of my adult life. Our union has been blessed with three children a couple of in-loves and a few grandchildren. We are so blessed. I love God more than words can articulate and sharing his word and his love with my sisters literally makes me smile. Enough about me, let's talk about Jesus!

  1. Yes, I’ve had lots of those prayers that haven’t been answered as I’d hoped, but faith is trusting that God is still sovereign and still good even when we don’t understand what he is doing.


  2. Ok, so He won’t take my cancer
    and send the thing far, far away,
    but disappointment ain’t my answer,
    and so it’s here I’m gonna stay,
    a place of trust and faith and praise
    (not hope, for all that’s in His hands),
    through dark nights and bloody days,
    through these strange enchanted lands
    where pain takes solid shape and form,
    hallucinations, but so real,
    and ghostly visits are the norm,
    but I know this isn’t real
    and I cling with no arg’ment
    to holy hem of His garment.


  3. This brings to mind the song that says “All my life you have faithful…all my life you have been so so good…with every breath that I am able…oh I will sing of the goodness of God.”


  4. Amen. Our faith still remains! Earlier this morning in reading my devotional (Streams in the Desert for 10/23) I read this line >> “Blessed are you if you trust when you cannot understand.” May we keep trusting Him and remain still with Him.
