I Forget

Sometimes our plans go awry. We lose our jobs, we are forced to change, we feel we've reached a stalemate, and, man, it hurts. Yet, it's times like these when I get a little nudge inside where God says, "Remember?" and I am brought to my knees in thankfulness, for this is another opportunity for God to show Himself faithful and all-loving once again.

Countless times He has been out-of-this-world good to me. And when I think about all the time I spent worrying over each of those "disasters" I thump myself on the head for wasting my energy and thoughts on something so useless. His love and faithfulness know no bounds and I can't wait to see how He's going to bless us as we work towards His next step.

Thank the Lord I'm not God. And thank God, we have the Lord.

  Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee.
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy Faithfulness, Lord unto me.

Summer and winter and spring-time and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide,
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

"Great is Thy Faithfulness" words by Thomas Chisholm
