I have had much on my mind lately. I’ve done battle with worry, and it has left me weary. Doesn’t it always seem that bad things happen in threes? I ticked off the worries on my fingers. One. Two. Three. My first thought was…..What should I do? I reminded myself that I am not the one in control. I like to think I am, but ultimately that is not true. It is just a lie I tell myself.
I’m going to be honest. There are times that things happen in my life and I just don’t get it. I don’t know why. I don’t know what good is going to come from it. I get resentful that I have to go through certain trials. Even though I know that life is never easy or even happy, 100% of the time, and we all bear our own burdens, the worrisome stuff always seems to catch me unaware. Sigh.
This afternoon God decided to join me, right in the middle of my pity party.
He spoke to me….in my car…on my way back home. Okay, so it wasn’t an audible voice, it was through old song verses I had memorized from years past… Great Is Thy Faithfulness. It was as if God, Himself, was reminding me that we have a history together. That He has always proved faithful in the past and He will again. No matter the circumstances, God is bigger.
“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!”
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
“Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me!
Proverbs 16:9 “The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.”
