There is always much to pray for. Just with Kenny and the kids alone my prayer concerns for the Lord are long. And then all the brokenness in the world to talk to the Lord about. A friend loses her baby, just a couple weeks before her due date. Another dear one terribly sick while traveling. And another friend diagnosed with an incurable cancer. Not to mention the school incident this week in Denver that completely shook me. Sending my kids to school every day is a complete act of faith. Every. Day. I turn my hands up to heaven and release my kids to the Lord every day. Asking for His protection which is so much greater than my own. I keep telling myself “Just three more weeks of school”, “Just two more weeks of school”, as if having them home with me they’ll be safer.
Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. Lamentations 3:22
God is still on the throne in the midst of life’s circumstances. None of it is a surprise to Him. He is in control and sovereign over all. I have seen His faithfulness over and over again in the past, and therefore my heart can trust Him.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8
These are the words of truth I speak to myself over and over again, all day long when my heart is troubled and worried. We preach this gospel to ourselves daily to be reminded of His great love for us.
Perfect love casts out fear. 1 John 4:18
And as I turn my concerns over to the Lord, one by one, taking them to the cross and leaving them there…
A heart at peace gives life to the body. Proverbs 14:30
…I am able to move forward. Confident, that whatever happens in this life, in this day, my Lord is on my side and I have no reason to fear.
Have a blessed day, my friends, putting your trust in the One who loves you so. That’s right where He wants you to be.
And because I’m still listening to this song on repeat, I’ll post it again as a reminder to myself. He is Worthy!
