Life has that awful way of making me forget those things I need to remember -- especially when I have those times of doubt and fear. The Word never fails...
One day You'll make sense of it all
One day every question resolved
Every anxious thought left behind
No more fear...
It immediately brings back those weeks ahead of Christmas when the Sears and Montgomery Ward holiday catalogs would be delivered, and my sister and I would dog-ear the pages and circle images of toys we wanted for Christmas.
And yet we knew that out of the dozen or so things we marked we were only allowed to have one.
Just one wish...
There are days when I go running so far ahead of God that I think I know what's best for me.
I am so very wrong.
He knows so much better than I.
- Seneca, Letters to a Stoic
I love this song. It always puts a catch in my throat, and One Voice has a masterful blend of voices that makes this song even more memorable.
Even in the darkest of nights and the most depressing of days, God is there to provide what is needed for whatever may come -- all I need to do is keep on believing.
I remember the Be More Dog ads -- and when I was doing a little blog clean up today, I noticed another one.
On a Monday, I needed encouragement like this.
As the United States prepares to witness the glorious dance of our sun and moon across our skies, I keep thinking how amazing God is showing us His glory and power in such obvious ways. He truly is one true God, and I love Him.
Jesus said to them, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but by me." (John 14:6)
When I was downsizing my library last summer, I made it a point to keep books that had become an important part of my life.
One in particular I kept. It's worn, it's spine is broken, it has loose pages, is dog-eared, and highlighted, and underlined. I did more than just read it. I absorbed it.
A Long Obedience in the Same Direction by Eugene Peterson has been more than just a book. It has been a life-long inspiration.
The message of this song... Wow!
O my soul, you are not alone
There's a place where fear has to face the God you know
One more day; He will make a way
Let Him show you how
you can lay this down
'cause you're not alone.
