True contentment comes from Godliness in the heart, not from wealth in the hand.

From Philippians 4:11-13:  “For I have learned to be content with whatever I have.  I know what it is to have little, and I know what it is to have plenty.  In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being well-fed and of going hungry, of having plenty and of being in need.  I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

When we are weak, then are we strong.  When most empty of self, we are most full of God.

From Ephesians 3:17-19:  “And that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love.  I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”

Charles Hodge (1797-1878) was an American theologian and Christian teacher.

Strength in Faith

From the words of American Christian author, Kay Arthur:  “To be courageous is to step out in faith–to trust and obey, no matter what.”

Each fear tests quiet resolve

Holding tightly to God’s Word

Strength in faith, stepping forward

Waiting courage, to be stirred


Another mountain to scale

Taking every fear to God

Faith’s shield shall always protect

Dissolving evil’s facade


Disappointment knocks at door

Believing in faithful Lord

Unspoken fears leaving heart

Sustaining grace, comes aboard


Endless wilderness journey

Seeing mercy’s light ahead

Every roadbed now smoothed out

Darning each fear, with faith’s thread


Dark challenges setting sail

Meditating day and night

Prayer surrounds every fear

Transforming faith, Savior’s light


Yesterday’s failures vanish

Removing fear’s daily stress

Faith encased with timeless love

Coming sunrise brings success

Imperfect life’s darkness

One more faltering step

Defeat again knocking

Discouragement’s doorstep


Observing faithful light

Glowing with lasting hope

Strength in adversity

Grasping mercy’s firm rope


Hearing Father, trust grows

Transforming future days

Faith journey maturing

Receiving grace, let’s pray


Evil’s message scuttled

Healing from Father’s hand

Peace brings lasting comfort

Affirming His commands


Beholding mighty works

Melting away concerns

Impossible vanquished

Trusting Father’s U-turn

From the words of English-born preacher Charles Inwood:  “When God is going to do a wonderful thing, He begins with a difficulty.  When He is going to do a very wonderful thing, He begins with an impossibility.”

Faith’s glowing spark

Tiny to see

Strength filling heart

Grace to foresee


Strength facing tests

Unknown as yet

Nourishing faith

Quieting threats


Challenges come

Darkness creeps in

Boosted in strength

Faith, life’s linchpin


Kneeling to pray

Faith never peaks

Fulfilling strength

Humbleness speaks


Always trust God

Mercy lifts up

Source of faith’s strength

Filling life’s cup


Embers of faith

Fed by courage

Blazing in strength

Shall encourage


From Father’s rock

Spirit connects

Lasting faith grows

His strength protects
