The past few weeks have been very trying for me. The TyrannyÂ of the urgent has worn me out. My best laid plans have been sidetracked for the more urgent matters. Stacks of paperwork lie on my desk for me to sort through, fill out, scan and file. Checkbooks to balance and schedules to sync and update…. it seems a little overwhelming … but it hit me… God has this! He has given me the strength to meet all of the challenges of each day. He has given me strength for the day! He has given me peace in the troubled times. Believe me … when you helping people who are sick, you are in troubled water!
I am finding such comfort at 3:00 am just reading God’s word.
in Psalm 92 verse 14,15 and 16 he tells us this : ” Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him. I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. Â He shall call upon me, and I will answer him,; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and Â honor him. with long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
I think about that old hymn “Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus”….
Jesus, Jesus how I trustÂ him, how I’ve proved him over and over. Jesus ,Jesus precious Jesus… O for grace to trust him more…
We don’t have to go through life in our own strength … we can fill our our cup to overflowing … how? On our knees… giving our burdensÂ to The Lord.
We can rest assure that he will give us peace.
Oh, what a comfort to know that God is our faithful friend. He sees all and holds us in his tender loving care. O What a Savior!
Trust him with your life.
In his grip.
