Persevering Faith


John 1:4-5
In Christ there was life, and that life was a light for the people of the world.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not defeated it.

No matter how dark the night,
No matter how fierce the storm,
Jesus help us trust in You,
And not give up, oh Lord.

No matter how high the waves
Come rising around our soul,
Jesus help us cling to You,
Your promise help us hold.

No matter how strong the winds
No matter how hot the flames,
Jesus help us trust in You,
And cling to You in faith.

No matter how strong the night,
It cannot overcome,
The light of Christ within us,
So may we not give up.

The darkness cannot overtake
The light of Jesus Christ,
Greater is He who is within us
Than our enemies of the night.

Lord Jesus, may we never give up,
Lord, never give up on You;
Lord, help us cling to You in faith
And hold on to Your truth.

Heavenly Father, thank You that Your Holy Spirit lives inside each one of Your children and that You are always with us every moment, every day of our lives. We may not be able to see You any more than we can see the air, but Your presence abides with us no matter what we are facing. You are with us in all our joys as well as all of our sorrows. Thy word says that You are very close to those whose hearts are breaking.

In art the brightest light is revealed by placing it next to something very dark. Perhaps that is also true spiritually. When we go through trials we are able to draw closer to You unless we allow the sorrows to make us bitter and angry.

Lord, I pray for every person reading this message and prayer; may You draw them closer to Thy heart through whatever path they are traveling in their life at this time.
May they not give up on any dream You have given them: ministry, work, whatever You whispered in their deepest hearts. Help them hold on and remember that “no word from God shall ever fail.” Thank You Lord. I love You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
