Wrestling With Faith

Hi Beloved! I hope you are having a great week! Here is another one for you. It can be hard to hold on to faith when the wait is long, the results aren’t as expected, and fear and doubt start taking root. Just remember, He is faithful. Amen! ❤

Wrestling With Faith – Alexis Gonzales

I don’t want it your way, Lord
I want it today
No patience, no rest, faith is put to the test
I’m trying to knock down doors, not respecting what is yours
The timing, the fight, thinking I am always right
I’m trying to force my will, but that battle’s all uphill
Thinking that you won’t come through, seems like I don’t even know you
Because have you ever failed me? Never
Have you ever let me down? I couldn’t think of a time, however
I’m so quick to turn, wondering can I trust you now
I’ve been waiting so long, thinking, do I have it all wrong?
Are you actually there? Do you actually care?
I hope it’s not all for nothing, all the waiting, all the hope
Will it lead me down the right path or am I cut from the rope
I’m trying to hold on, but do I have it all wrong?
Then again, why would I question and why would I doubt
You always come through, no question about
Your faithfulness, your love, we have it to the end
Even when we start to waiver and be shaken to the core
We need to remember that’s when you’re with us all the more
You’ll always provide for your children that you love, even when we’re undeserving
You are true to us even when you’re not the one we’re serving
I couldn’t understand the Israelites’ plight
Always worried and complaining, though they didn’t have the right
Did you ever fail them? Did you ever not come through?
No, but they were acting like they didn’t even know you
I thought, how do they not know and how do they not see how remarkably faithful you will always be
How could they doubt for a minute or even fear at all
You will always deliver, even if by close call
Then I realized how hypocritical I was being, here losing my faith because of the unseen
But God is so faithful, you can see from my past
Lord, forgive my unbelief, I know it won’t last
If I remember your goodness, your perfect planning, and Grace
You’re with us till the end, there’s no time or space
That can separate us from your love Lord, this is true
Lord, I trust you and thank you for all that you do
I need to sit back, relax, and let you come through
Prepare to receive my blessing and start thanking you
Your ways are perfect, you want what’s best for me too

Jesus Loves You,

Alexis
