By Grace Through Faith

One can’t always see the stars;
We know that they are there.
God is like those stars;
His presence is everywhere.

Evening scene with mountains and brilliant sky effects in background. a starry and colorful sky

By faith we believe in Him,
And this He will reward.
We trust that He is truth,
We Align with Him, concord.

By grace have we been saved,
And that alone through faith;
Lest any man should boast,
Lest any man should saith.

It is not of ourselves,
Nor achieved by any works.
The gift, it comes from God,
And it’s one of many perks.

Clouds may block the stars,
Our hearts may fill with fear.
We may think that we’re alone,
But our God is never scarce.

Take your seed of faith.
Let it grow, and fully sprout.
Leave no room for question,
Leave no room for doubt.

Soon you’ll see some fruit.
You’ll wonder how and why
You ever did without
The Maker of the skies.

There are many who are confused. They think their good works alone will get them into Heaven. This is so far from the truth and my prayer is that they will come to the knowledge of the truth. When we love God, it is natural to want to lift others. I have realized that by loving God, the door is opened to love others. And having a heart for His people and lifting them up is a way to glorify Him.
