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.

Hi Kim, I'm taking a wee brake from my hooking to read a few blog. Thanks for your prayer, it's so touching. I really don't have anything that needs comforting at the moment but I'll remember this post when I need it.

You remind me of a receptionist at God' switch board , connecting us to his saving grace. Have a great Thursday. Hugs. JB

Good Golly Miss Molly, I was wondering where you were. Its not like you to miss a day. So I was pleased to see your post and your lovely comforting words.
I hope the raindrops in your photos are not from today and you are enjoying the sunshine in your field of dreams.
Hugs, Kim

In such agreement with you today...I have been crying over some of the trials different ones are going through and then praying...knowing we are to weep with each other and rejoice. Thanks for the beautiful words, they sum it up have such a gift at that.
I too remember so many of those scripture songs also...God brings them back to mind often. said...

You have such a beautiful heart Kim. These are perfect pictures to share the thoughts. God has given you a wonderful concern and compassion for others and I share the many burdens that are out there with you today. Our prayers are with so many.
