We sang this song by Mark Robin yesterday morning in church. And these lyrics just put me at peace with all the thoughts that were going through my head. It was a great reminder that I don’t have to get anxious about my future. I do know my God, and He is in control!
And this morning I was up VERY early, I thought I would still catch my youngest on the phone. But I was not successful. And since I was up already, I just reflected on the year that has gotten me to this point. I don’t know that I’ve had a year with as many changes and as many “events” as this past one.
And looking back on this past year I’m overwhelmed with gratitude! In the midst of hard stuff I see God’s provision, I see His faithfulness and His love. But I also see His unbelievable grace and mercy! Wherever I failed, whenever I did not follow Him, He still did not let go of my hand. Yes, it was Him who carried me and put me back on my feet again.
I’ve got this little rock at home that has two Scripture references inscribed on it. The first one is Matthew 6:33 “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” And the second one is from 1 Samuel 7:12 “Up to this point the LORD has helped us!”
And this morning as I reflected on this past year I could say without a shadow of a doubt, that YES, up to this point the LORD has helped me!
And it is my prayer that I would seek the Kingdom of God above all else and live righteously. And God promises to give me everything I need.
