Put My Faith In him

I have been thinking about how easy it is to forget all the things God does for me. How those big things I always remember but it’s the little ones that really count and sadly those are the ones I let slip away. I know I maybe crazy but I don’t sweat the big stuff like maybe losing a house or job, I know my God is bigger than that. Yet… why is it I worry about my sleeping children not waking up, or the prowler in the dark that may have the worst in mind. I can quite convince myself that there is something “out there” and work myself up to such a state that there will be no sleep for me that night!

I cry out with all my soul to my Lord to be with me and take these fears from me. I pray that he will give me peace and I lay my burdens at his feet but some days I just can’t quite let go. Why is that?
Here is a beautiful prayer set to music which you can purchase here. This is from the classic Puritan book of prayers, Valley of Vision. I found this from another blog and it greatly encouraged me.
O Great God

Words and music by Bob Kauflin
As recorded on Valley of Vision
O great God of highest heaven
Occupy my lowly heart
Own it all and reign supreme
Conquer every rebel power
Let no vice or sin remain
That resists Your holy war
You have loved and purchased me
Make me Yours forevermore
I was blinded by my sin
Had no ears to hear Your voice
Did not know Your love within
Had no taste for heaven’s joys
Then Your Spirit gave me life
Opened up Your Word to me
Through the gospel of Your Son
Gave me endless hope and peace
Help me now to live a life
That’s dependent on Your grace
Keep my heart and guard my soul
From the evils that I face
You are worthy to be praised
With my every thought and deed
O great God of highest heaven
Glorify Your Name through me

Hi! It's Lisa C. from the Crew. This post was beautiful and thought provoking.

You had sent me a Google friend request - and I tried to hit "add", and the arrow checked "ignore." I'm so sorry (I still have a rough time with this laptop)

Can you resend the request? Sorry!
