Standing Firm


The Stand

I will stand because you have called me...

I will stand for thou will uphold me...

When fear pulls at my heart and despair grabs at my feet, I will stand in the strength of you love for me...

I will stand for the humiliation you had to bare...

I will stand and fight aginst the prince of the air...

I will stand and pray, fast and do my part...

I will stand in your grace for your love has captured my heart...

I will stand when all the world takes a bow, I shall stand and know that it is on your legs I stand now...

Mood: Embracing who I am each day....

[*] posted on 1-9-2010 at 02:45 AM


When reading this i was reminded of the "footprints in the sand".... it is so rare for people to actually stand up for what they believe in.... Jesus did it for us, why can't we do it for him? I feel that so many of us call ourselves "unashamed" when our actions speak differently. I am so glad that you are Standing. I pray that you continue to stand and that you not only stand... but stand firmly. Thanks for sharing....

Mood: In LOVE with life

[*] posted on 1-21-2010 at 02:38 PM


Phinixrose..

Indeed to Fight the Fine Fight of our Faith.
This piece is wonderful to me for so many reasons.. in this world and the times that we are living in, there are so many things that will test for faith, love and integrity, but it is oh so important for us to stand firm... recognizing though that we can not do it on our own

I will stand when all the world takes a bow, I shall stand and know that it is on your legs I stand now...

A lot of things are so much bigger than we are, and we are fighting against forces that are so much stronger than we are(alone) but with complete reliance on our heavenly father he will help us to endure, and give us the strength we need to continue in our race for life.

Thanks for sharing this peace...
poetic Love

Thank you ,

To everyone who took the time to read this write, Im glad that it touched each one of you in a different but similar way. Ariono-jovan Labu the way you recieved it is exactly the way I want it to be recieved, I want to awaken in all of us that desire "to run towards the goal of the mark and high calling of Christ Jesus" for this is what we were created for. Also I just wanted to say a special thank you to Sellmecandy for comparing my write to" Footprints in the sand" I felt really honor'ed because that is such a beautiful write. Thank you angel25

Very uplifting poem indeed. I enjoyed reading it. Standing firm and believing in our beliefs is the best choice we could make because Jesus did so much for us. He is always watching over us and he carries us and our burdens in his hand. What we give to him through our devotion and good things is us giving back what he already gave us.

That was a great poem describing the lenths of gratitude being shown to us as a people when faith is exercised. If the world could only be united in the faith, we would all learn what god has in store for us. Good job
