What a Great Morning Today

I love my church. This morning was awesome. Very challenging message from the preacher that I am pondering and praying over this afternoon. And one of the songs we sang was this:


"Great is Your faithfulness oh God

You wrestle with the sinner's heart

You lead us by still waters in to mercy

And nothing can keep us apart


So remember Your people

Remember Your children

Remember Your promise

Oh God


Your grace is enough

Your grace is enough

Your grace is enough for me


Great is Your love and justice God of Jacob

You use the weak to lead the strong

You lead us in the song of Your salvation

And all Your people sing along


So remember Your people

Remember Your children

Remember Your promise

Oh God


Your grace is enough

Your grace is enough

Your grace is enough for me [x2]


So remember Your people

Remember Your children

Remember Your promise

Oh God


Your grace is enough

Your grace is enough

Your grace is enough for me

Your grace is enough


Heaven reaching down to us

Your grace is enough for me

God I see your grace is enough

I'm covered in your love

Your grace is enough for me

For me"


I've been struggling recently with some anxiety and the blues. As we sang that this morning, the tears began flowing as I thought about how God's grace is sufficient on those days I feel so anxious and down that I just don't want to do what needs to be done that day. He is the reason I get up and get it done. He alone is the reason I am able to push through those kinds of days. His grace is enough, and more than enough!


And it is sanctity of human life Sunday. How I pray I can be one who will encourage anyone who will listen to choose life. We saw a very powerful video about the miracle of conception and human life. What an awesome Creator God we serve. I admit I was not even fighting the tears that fell as I pondered the verse, "And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them." - Psalm 139:16 (b) As we watched the video showing the development of a baby and the weeks were listed, I couldn't help but think about how the four little ones we've lost were only granted 10-11 weeks in my womb each. That is all the days that were written for them. And it is okay. Their lives have a purpose, too, I believe that. And how I want to be sure to teach the 3 living children I have the right fear and love of God. I want them to be absolutely sure what they believe, why they believe it and to be able to give a reason for the hope that is within them. I want to be that kind of person too.


God is so good and kind and merciful, and He is truly the all-sufficient and all-wise Savior. How thankful I am that God remembers His people, remembers His children, remembers His promise. Jesus is the hope upon which my soul is anchored.


John 14:6 "Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.'"
