ivey hopes…

skies of mercy

Open up the skies of mercy
And rain down the cleansing flood
Healing waters rise around us
Hear our cries lord let ‘em rise

-Chris Tomlin Kindness


I took this at a red light on the way to church last night. From McHenry all you could see was a blatantly vapid sky, low and heavy; you couldn’t tell that He had opened up the sky. You couldn’t see the light peeking through the clouds, the contrast of the rain barren clouds against the bright sun. But as soon as I made the left turn onto Pelendale it was clear. The sky was open, He was showing me His work, the work of His hands, the dust beneath His feet. so so so clear. I couldn’t deny the work of His hands now that I had seen what He’d done, but if He had said 10 minutes prior that there was a sunset waiting would I have believed Him? Trusted that He’d done what He said He would?

{trust} |trəst| noun.

1 firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something : relations have to be built on trust | they have been able to win the trust of the others.
• acceptance of the truth of a statement without evidence or investigation : I used only primary sources, taking nothing on trust.
• the state of being responsible for someone or something

I want to trust Him. I need to trust him. Faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen… But without faith it is impossible to please God for the one who draws near to Him must believe He exists and earnestly rewards those who seek Him.


worthy of trust

worthy of love

worthy of my everything
