Faith
(written by LaJuan)
I have faith
I have wall breaking
Solid rock kind of everlasting
Faith
It’s never binding
But ever climbing up the mountain
Faith
It’s something you get when you’ve hit the floor
And you’re damaged like you’ve never been before
And something kind of happens that turns it around
And you pick yourself up off the ground
It’s Faith, Faith, Faith
I have faith
I have earth shaking
Mirical making, love driven
Faith
Muscle behind me
Power inside me, God given
Faith
It’s something that builds when you seek the lord
And lay your burdens at his door
cause with him you just can not help but win
So believe it and get back up again
Have Faith, Faith, Faith
Your cross is heavy and the mountain is high
Keep moving your gonna make that climb
Have Faith, Faith, Faith, Faith – created at http://animoto.com

This is my prayer in the desert
When all that’s within me feels dry
This is my prayer in my hunger and need
My God is the God who provides

And this is my prayer in the fire
In weakness or trial or pain
There is a faith proved of more worth than gold
So refine me Lord through the flame

I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon formed against me shall remain

I will rejoice
I will declare
God is my victory and He is here

This is my prayer in the battle
When triumph is still on its way
I am a conqueror and co heir with Christ
So firm on His promise I’ll stand

All of my life
In every season
You are still God
I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship

This is my prayer in the harvest
When favor and providence flow
I know I’m filled to be emptied again
The seed I’ve received I will sow

From the birds that sing
In the tallest trees
To the human life
Of you and me
From the desert sands
To the place we stand
He is God of all
He is everything

I’m giving my life to the only one
Who makes the moon reflect the sun
Every starry night
That was His design
I’m giving my life to the only son
Who was and is and yet to come
Let the praises ring
‘Cause he is everything
‘Cause he is everything

From the autumn leaves
That will ride the breeze
To the faith it takes
To pray and sing
From the painted sky
To my plank filled eye
He is God of all
He is everything

Hallelujah (hallelujah)
Hallelujah
I believe
Ohhh
Hallelujah (hallelujah)
Hallelujah
I believe

I’m giving my life to the only one
Who makes the moon reflect the sun
On that starry night
He changed my life
I’m giving it all to the only son
Who gave me hope when I had none.
So let the praises ring

Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. Rev. 14:12.
We have need now for more than human wisdom in reading and searching the Scriptures; and if we come to God’s Word with humble hearts, He will raise up a standard for us against the lawless element.

Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. Rev. 14:12.
We have need now for more than human wisdom in reading and searching the Scriptures; and if we come to God’s Word with humble hearts, He will raise up a standard for us against the lawless element.

It is difficult to hold fast the beginning of our confidence firm unto the end; and the difficulty increases when there are hidden influences constantly at work to bring in another spirit, a negative element, on Satan’s side of the question. In the absence of persecution, there have drifted into our ranks some who appear sound, and their Christianity unquestionable, but who, if persecution should arise, would go out from us.

When the law of God is made void the church will be sifted by fiery trials, and a larger proportion than we now anticipate, will give heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. Instead of being strengthened when brought into strait places, many prove that they are not living branches of the True Vine. . .

But when the world makes void the law of God, what will be the effect upon the truly obedient and righteous? Will they be carried away by the strong current of evil? Because so many rank themselves under the banner of the prince of darkness, will God’s commandment-keeping people swerve from their allegiance? Never! Not one who is abiding in Christ will fail or fall. His followers will bow in obedience to a higher authority than that of any earthly potentate.

While the contempt placed upon God’s commandments leads many to suppress the truth and show less reverence for it, the faithful ones will with greater earnestness hold aloft its distinguishing truths. We are not left to our own direction. . . . We should consult His Word with humble hearts, ask His counsel, and give up our will to His. We can do nothing without God.

Satan works overtime to establish strife and conflict in today’s society, however it is most unfortunate when he puts one religion against another. We can only hope that civility will prevail in helping cooler heads to win this one. We should be expressing our love for one another, not spewing hate and anger as we tend to do so often today.

None of us should doubt the sincerity of our Muslim brothers and their commitment to their beliefs, however it is those very beliefs that beg for reasoning from the rest of the world. Being a Christian myself, I can appreciate dedication to your chosen faith, and while some may   claim to use this commitment to their benefit, the world should realize that this religion is being held hostage by a few.

Christians have been persecuted for years for their beliefs in Jesus Christ as their one and only Savior, so why should our status today be any different. We move forward by our faith, not by our sight, and that confuses some spectators, who firmly believe that they should be able to see and touch something in order for it to be real.

Most religions today are not tolerable to others because they believe that theirs is the only true word. When another brother gets into a religious conversation, it is almost as though we see a feeding frenzy occurring right in front of your eyes. This is one of the reasons why many choose not to enter into conversations of such a nature.

This intolerance to others is what causes our society to be separated in so many different directions. We prefer to take aggressive measures against each other, simply because they do not agree with us. If anyone finds any part of the Bible, (the Word of God) that suggests being aggressive to their neighbors, they are probably reading from the wrong book, because our Creator advocates peace and love.

Music by Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston video from “Touch by an Angel”
Many nights we’ve prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hopeful song
We barely understood

Now we are not afraid
Although we know there’s much to fear
We were moving mountains long
Before we knew we could

There can be miracles, when you believe
Though hope is frail, it’s hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe

In this time of fear
When prayers so often prove(s) in vain
Hope seems like the summer birds
Too swiftly flown away

Yet now I’m standing here
My heart’s so full I can’t explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I never thought I’d say

There can be miracles, when you believe
Though hope is frail, it’s hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe

They don’t (always happen) when you ask
(Oh)
And it’s easy to give in to your fears
(Oh…Ohhhh)
But when you’re blinded by your pain
Can’t see your way straight throught the rain
(A small but )still resilient voice
Says (hope is very near)
(Ohhh)

There can be miracles
(Miracles)
When you believe
(Lord, when you believe)
Though hope is frail
(Though hope is frail)
It’s hard to kill
(Hard to kill, Ohhh)
Who knows what miracles,you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will(somehow,somehow, somehow)
somehow you will
You will when you believe

You will when you
You will when you believe
Just believe…in your heart
Just believe
You will when you believe~
