"When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow.
For I will be with thee, thy trials to bless,
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress."
Quoted from the hymn
~ How Firm a Foundation ~
Oh there are times it feels as though they WILL!
But, the LORD promises they will not!
How often we must speak TRUTH to ourselves.
How often I must listen and drink in that TRUTH!
This is not our home ~
We are not to put roots down here.
Sin, sickness and disease are in this old world ~
We must do battle with them.
But, Oh what a blessed thought ~
There is NO sin in Heaven.
None of the effects of sin are there either ~
No sickness, sorrow, or death.
The longer I live,
the more precious Heaven becomes ~
HE becomes more precious!
In the midst of life's trials and troubles.
Thankfulness is something I can do.
When everything *seems* out of control.
Was I ever in control?
No ~ It was an illusion.
God is in complete control ~
Of all things!
I give thanks ~
To the ONE Who deserves All our Thanks.
God is Good ~ ALL the time!
"I will bless the LORD at all times:
his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make her boast in the LORD:
the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
O magnify the LORD with me,
and let us exalt his name together."
~ Psalm 34:1-3 ~
