Tired and empty I came today… and Father, you have met every need. A daughter experiencing your grace and and kindness; needed prayer and encouragement from a close friend. Gentleness from my wife. A new (and much needed) job for a son in law. A timely client payment “in the mail.” And quiet direction… so quiet and so subtle that I would not have heard it if I had been running my mouth in complaint and misery. But you commanded me to be still. I was still. I pray for your strength to remain still. What a safe place it is with you.
The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
It goes beyond the highest star,
And reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled,
And pardoned from his sin.
