SONG - Find Us Faithful


This blog post is a little different as it is simply the words to a song.  BUT these words so speak my heart - especially where my Children and Grandchildren are concerned.  I felt I MUST share them. 


FIND US FAITHFUL

We're pilgrims on this journey on a narrow road,
And those who've gone before us line the way.
Cheering on the faithful, encouraging the weary
Their lives a stirring testament to God's sustaining grace.

Surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses
Let us run the race not only for the prize
But as those who've gone before us
Let us leave to those behind us
The heritage of faithfulness passed through Godly lives.

Oh, may all who come behind us Find us Faithful
May the fire of our devotion light their way
May the footprints that we leave - Lead them to believe
And the lives we live inspire them to obey.

After all our hopes and dreams have come and gone
And our children sift through all we've left behind
May the clues that they discover and the memories they uncover
Become the light that leads them to the road we each must find.

Oh, may all who come behind us Find us Faithful
May the fire of our devotion light their way
May the footprints that we leave - Lead them to believe
And the lives we live inspire them to obey.

For our children and our grandchildren.

I've always liked this song and it's good to just read the words and pay attention to them again.

To me a song that gently reprimands, encourages, teach and put my eyes back to look to GOD alone.
Oh, and that reminds me of another song he sings, I am off to go listen to it, 'GOD and GOD alone.'

I became aware of your blog through a dear Christian lady who also blogs. I look forward to following you as I have been so blessed as I have read through some of your posts this morning! Thank you for your obedience and boldness in sharing your faith and life with others. My heart's desire is to be found faithful in all that my Heavenly Father calls me to do.
