Great is Thy Faithfulness.......
That song is stuck in my head today as I reflect on how GOOD Father God is.
Great is Thy Faithfulness
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!
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 will be.
Summer and winter and springtime 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
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
AHHHHHH!! it’s so good you guys!
I want to focus on how faithful He has been in my times of need these last few weeks. As most of you know, we moved to Florida. Well, the boys and I did and Vlad is working in Portland. The idea is for him to work there and get his life straight and come back to us. Come back to us healed and whole and loving Jesus and…. sigh… You guys don’t even know how much I want my family whole and healed. I know that God’s will for my life is good and that includes me being married to Vlad and the boys having a father - their father. I know that and I cling to that. God is a God of restoration and healing. That alone keeps me going on tough days. I know I will write a redemption story here one day. These posts are the chaos and brokenness I face daily. This time is filled with uncertainty. I am certain of this -I ask and I shall receive, that’s the promise and God is a promise keeper. I have lined my will to God’s in this area and now I cling to it. I persist and He is faithful. I know He holds my hand through the days that I just cry on my five year old’s shoulder and wish I can do more for the boys. I get so frustrated with opening lids on cans ( small) to weed-wacking and mowing the lawn (big) and just flippin cry. As I write this I’m laughing, but I’m not a man and I don’t intend to do those types of manly things. lol Gosh Vlad, get your S&*% straight. Wow, this post was intended to give glory to Father God and here I am being real and remind myself of King David of old. He was all over the place. He was a man after God’s own heart and I can see why. He was a mess and he loved God with all his being and put all that out in Psalms.
God uses all the ugly, all the “not enough” and turns them in to gold and over flowing goodness. Because he is Good. ALL THE TIME. He provides ALL the time, even when things have been stolen by the enemy, God redeems and provides. Even the little tiny things. Like, I was just thinking how I wanted to get a citronella plant and a few other things in Home Depot. I was cleaning out my wallet and there it was! A gift card to Home Depot! During our first week back in Florida, we had no money to spare and our house was was a mess after the renters moved out, my friend happened to be vacationing here and asked me to come and take all their food, water, and beach stuff when they leave so it doesn’t go to waste. That was a huge blessing. She doesn’t even know. But, God used her to just whisper to me that “He will always provide”… I can go on and on His faithfulness these last few weeks.
Father God has always provided. In so many ways in my life, especially in financial circumstances. Through people, through work, through just having the right person in my life at the most perfect time.
That’s a little piece of my heart right now.
