Life Well Inspired

How are you today, friend?

Today finds me at the end of my rope feeling like I cannot persevere anymore.  Specifically being Big Bro’s mama.  Hubby will tell you that I am stubborn and strong willed, but I am wondering if maybe Big Bro might have me beat in that department.  He has been in some kind of funk that is just testing and trying- fighting us at every turn.  He is definitely in a rough spot.

After a mommy meltdown this morning and unloading on God, the lyrics of this song came to mind.  God reminded me that he gives me strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow.  The quietness and truth in this hymn was so comforting as I let its melody infiltrate my mind this morning.  Take a minute to let the music calm your nerves while the truth in its words sink in.

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.

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!

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!

Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow.  Yes, that is what we need through life’s storms and it is His faithfulness that makes that strength and bright hope available to us.  I hope it encourages you today, where ever you are!

I'd love to know your thoughts!
