The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, And in the night His song shall be with me— A prayer to the God of my life. Psalms 42:8 NKJV
I read these words this morning and was surprised at how they perfectly reflect my day and night.
They speak so clearly to what the Lord is doing.
His faithfulness is incredible!
As you probably know, our family’s desire is to see God’s Word shared around the world.
The Lord blessed us with a season of travel, where one, some, or all of us were able to go to other countries to share the love of Christ.
Now that travel is no longer an option, we are looking to support others who are living on the mission field.
My husband felt God would have us sell furniture.
After prayerfully considering the best platform for us, we rented a space at an antique mall.
Yesterday, God blessed us with safety as we traveled down and set up the booth.
He blessed us with help.
First our son-in-law lent us his trailer, then got up early and helped my husband load the trailer.
They drove down with us and he helped unload the trailer.
Two other young men, friends of ours, also came to help unload the trailer.
Since I’ve had a migraine for several days, I evidently wasn’t clear when explaining where I wanted the furniture and they had to rearrange things several times.
When all the furniture was in place Anne, Jase, and the young men patiently unwrapped all the small things and helped me place them.
My mom came down to meet us and took pictures of it all.
Since the booth is a few hours away, she’s offered to check on it regularly.
When it was finished, we packed up and headed home, as I was feeling worse.
To my surprise I realized I hadn’t taken a single picture of the booth.
I texted Sis and not long afterwards I received a bunch of lovely photos.
They had returned to take pictures.
My mom sent me hers as well.
My heart was so full of gratitude to the Lord for all the help and blessings.
And during the night I was able to praise Him and pray for those people who came to mind.
Such quiet and deep times with the Lord are those watches of the night
And then I read these words:
“The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime…”
Yesterday, it was unmistakable God was blessing us greatly.
Truly, each day is full of God’s lovingkindness.
“And in the night His song shall be with me— A prayer to the God of my life.”
This was exactly what my night was, singing praise in my heart and prayers.
As I read these words this morning I just had to share how good and how faithful God is.
His ways are perfect and His Word is truth.
His lovingkindness is incredible.
I am so thankful to Him.
I’m so thankful for all the people who helped us.
And I pray that your heart is encouraged.
I don’t know what you are facing today, but I do know Who is wanting to walk you through it.
May you feel the love of Jesus Christ as you walk into 2021.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for all the ways You bless me each day. Lord, thank You for the food I eat, the clothes I wear, and the tasks at hand. Lord Jesus, I want to lift up the broken, the hurting, the lost, and I humbly request that You touch them, guide them, bring them to Yourself. Lord, the innocent, those in bondage, the orphan, and the widow, please provide and protect. Lord, for those who are called by Your name, please help them to live wholeheartedly for You in every area. Lord, show them how to live, give them discernment and provision. Please, return the prodigal. Lord, Your lovingkindness is amazing. Your grace and mercy are incredible. Thank You for Your faithfulness. I love You. Amen.
