Living by Faith and Not by Feeling

When everything is pleasant and bright
And the things we do turn out just right,
We feel without question that God is real,
For when we are happy, how good we feel…
But when the tides turn and gone is the song,
And misfortune comes and our plans go wrong,
Doubt creeps in and we start to wonder
And our thoughts about God are torn asunder–
For we feel deserted in time of deep stress,
Without God’s presence to assure us and bless…
And it is then when our senses are reeling
We realize clearly it’s Faith and not Feeling–
For it takes Great Faith to patiently wait,
Believing “God comes not too soon
and never too late.”
