Wednesday Ponderings

Photobucket
What a roller coaster ride life is! And aren't the days rushing past with locomotive speed. The trials and mysteries of day to day living can be so disconcerting, I can not imagine how the unregerate, folk cope! Just this week, I have experienced the sense of loss and dismay of brought on by unexpected death, then joy and love unspeakable because of the Father's love for us, the fulfilling fellowship of sisters in Christ, yet, the dismal longing to hug my own daughter who is happily living her new life hundreds of miles away. Then, there is the fearful prospect of the coming pandemic of pestilence, the crushing blows of failing economy, bad news on every network, it seems, which could deplete anyone's reserve and send one into a downward emotional collapse. But praise God! He is faithful and just. With all our faith in Him who orders the universe, we have complete peace and confidence that come what may, we'll be better that okay! The verse which was written over me in prayer on my "WALK" is Romans 8:28!
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Trust and Obey

When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,What a glory He sheds on our way!While we do His good will, He abides with us still,And with all who will trust and obey.
Refrain:Trust and obey, for there’s no other wayTo be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,But His smile quickly drives it away;Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,Can abide while we trust and obey.
Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,But our toil He doth richly repay;Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,But is blessed if we trust and obey.
But we never can prove the delights of His loveUntil all on the altar we lay;For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,Are for them who will trust and obey.
Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet,Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;Never fear, only trust and obey.

  1. We are certainly living in very uncertain times and there are lots of things to be afraid of, but having a faith and knowledge in Christ and the Gospel is a great support and help in these troubled times. We must trust in Him. He will not lead us astray and even if the worst happens, we'll be with Him, so it's all good.
