THOUGHTS FOR SUNDAY



Image result for margaret sangster

God knows, not I, the reason why 
His winds of storm drive through my door;  
I am content to live or die 
Just knowing this, nor knowing more.  
My Father's hand appointing me
My days and ways so I am free.

~Margaret Sangster (1838-1912) 


Dear Lord, You alone know the deep winds of storm that whirl around us trying to frighten us and causing us to doubt Your Word and care for us. But then I'm reminded that you have assigned me my portion and my cup. You have made my lot secure. (Psalms 15:5)  You are a God of Love, so I can trust you.  I'm your child and you alone filters what can touch me.  I rest in that Love and Security today and every day.  I love You.  Amen.

  1. Jesus love me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so...
    Safe am I in the hollow of His hand, Sheltered o'er with His love forever more...

  5. Thank you for your good devotionals. I told Alan last night that I can feel the prayers of many people. Thank you for praying. I was not the least bit concerned or anxious so I know that God heard your prayers. Thank you so much.
