As surely as the sun will rise

"As surely as the sun will rise, You'll come to us. As certain as the dawn appears"
Hillsong - Brooke Fraser

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord your God with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

1 Corinthians 2:9
No eye has seen,
No ear has heard,
No mind has conceived
What God has prepared for those who love Him.

These two scriptures have stood out for me all my life and I am sure to many others too. It has an air of expectation. A feeling that there is really more to life. Trusting God wholly and knowing He is there always to guide you. He has a plan. My life is not going to end with me feeling it was all for naught.

As surely as the sun will rise You'll come to us as certain as the dawn appears.
The sun will rise tomorrow that dawn will come at the end of the day. These are some of the certainties we have in life and just as we have these we have the certainty that God is there for us all the time no matter what. Like the footprints in the sand.

With the Poem of the footprints in the sand I realise that there is a part that we need to play to. God may be holding us during the tough times when we cannot walk ourselves and we need to be carried but maybe we need to at these times remember Him and recognise His presence in our lives and recognise Our Father's footprints in the sand instead of thinking we are alone and that those footprints are our own.

Trust in the Lord your God and lean not on your own understanding.
"My ways are not yours" says the Lord.

He said He would never leave us or forsake us. Do we beleive that? Do we somedays feel like He has? Why do we not feel Him carrying us in our darkes hour or not recognise that the single set of footprints in the sand are not ours but His?

Will we walk by Faith and Trust in Him? I'd like to say I do maybe somedays I need to remind myself of this.
