Its has been awhile, since I have written a post, exactly 20 days ago. September has flown by. The heat has subsided to cooler, more pleasant temperatures. The first leaves of the season are starting to change color and gently fall from the trees.
School started, and I have been busy with my children. It has been great, most of time, but honestly, I am tired. I think I will look back on this season of my life fondly, probably my favorite. I see how God is working in my children, and I am so proud of them and excited for them. I can’t wait to see what God has planned for them.
The one thing that never changes is God. The name of God shines like the sun. All nations will worship him. God does wondrous things! The name of the Lord is glorious. We should sing our praises to God and let the praises fill the earth, as his glory lights up the world. The name of God will endure forever, as the things of this earth fade away. The Lord remains forever.
His name shall endure forever;
His name shall continue as long as the sun.
And men shall be blessed in Him;
All nations shall call Him blessed.
Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel,
Who only does wondrous things!
And blessed be His glorious name forever!
And let the whole earth be filled with His glory.
Amen and Amen.
—Psalm 72:17-19 NKJV
I hate to remember myself, before I found God. I was like a fish out of water, floundering. I made so many mistakes. I searched for someone to love me and accept me. I didn’t realize that God was right there all along, waiting for me. Now, I know that God is there for me. I trust in the Lord.
God grasps my hand and guides me along. When I am confused, I pray and seek God’s guidance. God fills me with peace and gives me guidance. When I trust in the Lord, I never need to be anxious. God provides for all my needs.
When I am weak, God gives me strength. When I have no hope, God fills my heart with comfort and peace. I pray for those who don’t know God. I pray that they let go of control and trust in the Lord. I thank God for all that he has done in my life and look forward to seeing his plan for my life unfold.
I was so foolish and ignorant;
I was like a beast before You.
Nevertheless I am continually with You;
You hold me by my right hand.
You will guide me with Your counsel,
And afterward receive me to glory.
Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
My flesh and my heart fail;
But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
For indeed, those who are far from You shall perish;
You have destroyed all those who desert You for harlotry.
But it is good for me to draw near to God;
I have put my trust in the Lord God,
That I may declare all Your works.
—Psalm 73:22-28 NKJV
No matter what season, you are in, God is there for you. God will carry you through sorrow. God will fill your heart with peace during trials. God will dance with you during times of joy. You will never be alone, if you trust in God.
