Song: “Great Is Thy Faithfulness”

By Thomas Chisholm

1 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!

2 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. [Refrain]

3 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! [Refrain]

VERSE:  Deuteronomy 2:7–“ For the Lord thy God hath blessed thee in all the works of thy hand: He knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness: these forty years the Lord thy God hath been with thee; thou hast lacked nothing.”

I know there are some days when things don’t look the way you want them to look.  I realize there are some days that you don’t feel the way you want to feel, and I understand that some days you just don’t feel like going on.  But all these feelings are rooted in a lie.  They are formed from focusing on the bad and the lies the devil tells you and not on the wonderful blessings God gives you.  Think of all God has given you.  He has provided for you all you have needed.  He has given you people to love you and care for you. He has given you a community of friends and family to walk this journey of life with you. Nothing you have needed has He ever withheld from you. In fact, when you look back on your life, you will find that you have lacked nothing.  Everything you have needed, He has provided. Remember, Jesus loves you.  You are loved!

Prayer:  Lord, speak peace to my heart today.  Fill my mind with the memories of Your blessings.  Let me see You in the smile of those I meet today.  Help me to embrace each day with gladness and gratitude.  In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
