be encouraged


"the providence of god is the way in which
he governs everything wisely.
first for the glory of his own name,
and second for the
ultimate blessing of his children."
{sinclair ferguson}

today i'm grateful for his providence.

i want to see, to look for his hand
in every moment of every day.
i want to trust him, in all things.

he is so good!

praise jesus in the bitter and the sweet,
it is all for our good and for his glory.

he gave us life, and all of his love.
take heart, he cares for our spirit!

  4. Amen! Me too!
    I want that too!!!
    But then we (I) are always in a battle with our old sin nature to see. To take the time to see.

    Sunday pastor described it as our sinful bodies being like a balloon.....that leaks. We constantly have to run to Him & His word to get filled back up again. I had never though about it quite that way before!

    Thank you for your constant encouragement!!!
    Have a blessed day friend! :)

  15. It is so hard to praise him in the bitter... But you are so right, we need to praise him at all times in all circumstances. He is not just there for us during the good times, He's ALWAYS there.
