“I Will Trust in You”

I love this song:

 

 

 

So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever.  2 Cor 4:16-18 (MSG)

 

16 Therefore we do not become discouraged [spiritless, disappointed, or afraid]. Though our outer self is [progressively] wasting away, yet our inner self is being [progressively] renewed day by day. 17 For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]!18 So we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are unseen; for the things which are visible are temporal [just brief and fleeting], but the things which are invisible are everlasting and imperishable. 2 Cor 4:16-18 (AMP)

 

 

“Today, will I surrender my fears, my future, my what ifs, my life to the God of the heavens? The sovereign one with whom there are no accidents. With whom truth gives way, shining its light on the very core of my fears. With whom His very Word, that which we can hold in our fingertips, and take into the inner places of our beings…..brings hope, love, truth, comfort, encouragement, courage, forgiveness, healing, strength and endurance…and the ability to surrender to Him.”
Although I am very tired these days and I’m dealing with some side effects from the chemo, I’m so thankful to be doing  really well overall.  Thank you for praying for me and my precious family.  As I think about those verses in 2 Cor  above, it’s neat to know  that any and every hard thing we’ll ever go through is “small potatoes” to the Lord and the best is yet to be!  🙂

  1. You are going through the “valley of the shadow of death ” so that God can ressurect you. I pray for patience and healing as He does His good work.
