Finding Peace

Life can be a lot like the weather, it can change very quickly, sometimes you have warning sometimes you don't. There are all the indications that a "weather front" is getting ready to move through our lives, I can feel the winds against my face. I am not sure what's ahead...but change is coming.

When thinking about all the different scenarios that could play out, I  remembered a song by Sara Groves that I heard a couple of years ago...I was reminded of the faithfulness of God in times past...he has always provided what I have had need of. My biggest need right now is peace for today and the days ahead...trusting he will continue to provide it. Thought I would share the words from that song that gave me so much peace tonight.

He's Always Been Faithful
Morning by morning, I wake up to find
The power of comfort in God's hand in mine
Season by season I watch Him amazed
In awe of the mystery of His perfect ways
All I have need of, His hand will provide
He's always been faithful to me

I can't remember a trial or a pain
He did not recycle to bring me gain
I can't remember one single regret
In serving God only, and trusting His hand
All I have need of, His hand will provide
He's always been faithful to me

This is my anthem, this is my song
The theme of the stories I've heard for so long
God has been faithful, He will be again
His loving compassion, it knows no end
All I have need of, His hand will provide
He's always been faithful, He's always been faithful
He;s always been faithful to me

Amen...yes, I know that feeling when something is going to change...but also know the feeling of needing to trust for the future, that is where I am right now, letting go of the fears of "what if" and leaning strongly into His arms

Great song...great words ....blessings as your change comes

Good morning...Yes, I have found myself in that spot many times. And nothing quite as comforting as knowing He has us in His hand. Love that song! Have a wonderful day...HUGS

Peace for today. Trusting Him for today. There is so much wisdom in that. You inspire others with the fruit you are gathering. And what a beautiful hymn. Prayers and blessings!

Those are pretty special lyrics and so full of Truth. Praying for you, dear Maryann!

I know exactly of what you speak. Exactly.

I want to google to see if I can hear that beautiful song. It is, indeed, and anthem.

And I pray for that peace in the storm ahead, or whatever changes are coming, that you will look out across the horizon and see the One who says, fear not, I AM.
