Thoughts on Thursday
There are days like today when I sit down at the computer,
and I read of trials that some of you are going through.
I am sad that I can't
come and just give you a hug or a touch
or just cry with you. I know though, that God can be
there and I know that He hears my prayers.
Since His thoughts are higher than my thoughts I
am just going to give you some that have comforted me.
I am taking this from the book, " God's Guidance,
A Slow and Certain Light. " (By Elisabeth Elliot p.34-35)
"... and he will guide them to springs of living water; and
God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."
"There are promises of special care for special needs;"
"He will feed his flock like a shepherd, he will gather the lambs
in his arms, he will carry them in his bosom, and gently lead those that
are with young."
If you can't see the way before you:
"I will lead the blind in a way that they know not, in paths that they have
not known I will guide them. I will turn the darkness
before them into light, the rough places into level ground."
If you are confused or distressed:
"I will lead him and requite him with comfort."
If you are lonely or tired:
"My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest."
When my kids were small and we used to listen to scripture memory songs
in the car, they would help me too. Still till this day I will sing to myself,
"When I am afraid, I will trust in you, when I am afraid." I can't carry a tune
in a bucket but I can sing little kid songs.
My prayers will be for you today.
