Have you ever felt so overwhelmed you’re not sure how you’re going to keep it together? I had a moment like that…or a few of them recently as I decluttered my house to get it ready to sell, chase three boys around, balance swim lessons and t-ball schedules with grocery shopping and laundry (which, by the way, I didn’t do so hot at last week as we had an underwear crisis!) And as a friend commented on facebook recently, it sometimes seems that as soon as you get through a whole mess of things, you’re inundated with twice as much — cause that’s life!
This verse of “Great is Thy Faithfulness” was just what I needed.
“Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!”
Oh the idea of a peace that endures and never fails comforts my heart! The reminder that God’s sweet presence cheers and guides me is the reassurance I need. His promise to provide strength and hope for each new day with new blessings, even if they’re in disguise (as the Laura Story song goes.) I just love it when Jesus comforts me with reminders of his faithfulness at the moment we need it most, don’t you? And though my situation hasn’t changed at all, I feel confident that I can do all things through Him who gives me strength. Great is His faithfulness.
