FSFD007 Song Title: I Do Believe – Proverbs 3:5 (If you don’t have a Bible handy, you can read this passage at BibleGateway.com)
I believe You hear us when we cry to You.
When we sing Your praises, unspoken wishes too.
I do believe You hear us, Lord. I do believe in You.
I believe You help us with Your love and grace.
Giving us Your strength for the world that we face.
I do believe You help us, Lord. I do believe in You.
I believe You hold us, safe within Your arms.
Giving care and comfort when in our earthly storms.
I do believe You hold us, Lord. I do believe in You.
I do believe in You.
About Bonita B. Evans
Since I was young I have felt God's presence in my life. I have been singing Christian music since I was a small child. Reading and studying the Bible have become more and more important in my life. In 2008, songs started coming into my head when reading, driving and also sleeping, so I decided to write them down and share them. For Christmas 2008, I recorded a ten song CD for my family and friends. For Advent 2009, I shared the first version of "A Flame in My Heart" with my church, family and friends. In 2011, I created and shared in this blog "40 Songs for 40 Days" for Lent. For Advent 2011 and 2012 I posted revised versions of "A Flame in My Heart". For Lent 2013 I reposted "40 Songs for 40 Days". I am not sure why this has all happened but I consider it to be a gift from God.
“When we have an important decision to make, we sometimes feel that we can’t trust anyone-not even God. But God knows what is best for us. He is a better judge of what we want than we are! We must trust him completely in every choice we make. We should not omit careful thinking or belittle our God-given ability to reason; but we should not trust our own ideas to the exclusion of all others. We must not be wise in our own eyes but be willing to listen to and be corrected by God’s Word and wise counselors.”
We should bring our decisions to God in prayer, use the Bible as our guide, and then follow God’s leading. He will direct our paths by both guiding AND protecting us.
I think bringing our decisions to God helps us place our faith at the center of our lives instead of on the fringes. Yes, we can make all of our decisions based on ourselves and the world and then turn to God later when we have made a mess of things, but don’t you wonder how different things might be if we would all pray for and listen to God’s leadings before our actions?
