Always

Whenever I go through a difficult time, whether personally or with worry for a family member, etc the first thing I do is turn to God and ask for His help - True or False?  I would like to say TRUE.... and I do turn to God and pray and ask for His help, but do I stop worrying?  No, not always.

The Scripture Lessons and Lyrics Challenge no 3 (see it here) is entitled Always and its about knowing God as our refuge and strength ALWAYS.  The song this time is by Kristian Stanfill.  Its a wonderful song with great words.  You can listen to it here..


This song really spoke to me:
"My foes are many, they rise against me
But I will hold my ground!
I will not fear the war, I will not fear thte storm
My help is on the way, my help is on the way

Oh, my God, He will not delay
My refuge and strength always
I will not fear, His promise is true
My God will come through always
Always

 Do I believe those words?  Yes, yes, YES!!!  God has proved it to me so many times - He is always there to help, to strengthen, to get us through bad times.  I just want to be able to get to the place where I will never fear or worry, but always trust and hold my ground!  - its a work in progress :)

Here is my double page.  Again I wanted to include most of the song and several scriptures:


  I'm doing a 6 x 12 book so this is how is will look:


Here are the pages individually:



And a close up of the words of the song:


and these wonderful wonderful scriptures.


God wants us to call on Him for help - we just need to do it.....and then wait and not worry!
