David Jeffers ..

I know you believe.. I know you are out there, in the world, doing what you think is best.. for you.. today..

I know you give the heavens more than just a second glance..

I know its scary..

I believe in you.

I love you.

I miss you, so much.

I’m here.. Always..

Love, Heidi

lyrics:

Oh,what I would do to have
the kind of faith it takes
To climb out of this boat I’m in
Onto the crashing waves
To step out of my comfort zone
Into the realm of the unknown
Where Jesus is,
And he’s holding out his hand

But the waves are calling out my name
and they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times
I’ve tried before and failed
The waves they keep on telling me
time and time again
“Boy, you’ll never win,
you’ll never win.”

But the Voice of truth tells me a different story
the Voice of truth says “do not be afraid!”
and the Voice of truth says “this is for My glory”
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the Voice of truth

Oh, what I would do
to have the kind of strength it takes
To stand before a giant
with just a sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound
of a thousand warriors
shaking in their armor
Wishing they’d have had the strength to stand

But the giant’s calling out
my name and he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times
I’ve tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me
time and time again
“Boy you’ll never win,
you’ll never win.”

But the voice of truth tells me a different story
the Voice of truth says “do not be afraid!”
and the Voice of truth says “this is for My glory”
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the Voice of truth

But the stone was just the right size
to put the giant on the ground
and the waves they don’t seem so high
from on top of them looking down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
when I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
singing over me

But the Voice of truth tells me a different story
The Voice of truth says “do not be afraid!”
And the Voice of truth says “this is for my glory”
Out of all the voices calling out to me (calling out to me)
I will choose to listen and believe (I will choose to listen and believe)
I will choose to listen and believe the Voice of truth

I will listen and believe
I will listen and believe the Voice of truth
I will listen and believe
‘Cause Jesus you are the Voice of truth
And I will listen to you.. oh you are the Voice of truth

Research It.. for yourself.. don’t take anyone’s word, for it!


Amy has touched on something very personal to me, in her latest bible study post. Proverbs 31 is one of my favorite scriptures.. and something that has always touched me, so I started reading when I saw her post logo.

Even though Amy and I have walked similar paths, in similar shoes, we do not have the exact same spiritual thoughts or experiences. I can’t let that stop me, though, from feeling that Amy has something to teach me.

My greatest discouragement, in my own bible research, is not knowing how to compare different versions. I am very disappointed that I can’t read scriptures in their original language. Its an unrealistic expectation, of myself, though.

I am never going to read Aramaic or Greek. This makes me love apologetics.

The greatest blessing, that I have received, from my attempts to study or learn Arabic, was a change from my knowledge of “translation.”

“Transliteration” is more appropriate when we talk about languages. There simply are not words, that mean exactly the same thing, from one language to another. Culture and “the times” can also create the word that is chosen, by the transcriber.

What is a concordance? You may know it better by the words “Topical Guide.”

What is a Lexicon? You may know it better by the words, “Dictionary” or “Encyclopedia.”

I can discern. I can be strong, enough, in my own faith, to pray about what I am reading and learning, and ask for guidance and direction. I can use internet resources and do the best, that I know to do.

So can you.

Search, Ponder, and Pray.. Simple Standardz to live by..
