Through it all, God is with us, leading us, teaching us, humbling us, preparing us.

From Psalm 91:1-2:  “You who live in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shadow of the Almighty, will say to the Lord, ‘My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust.'”

Victor Hugo Quote

Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace.  God is awake.

From Isaiah 43:18-19:  “Do not remember the former things, or consider the things of old.  I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?  I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”

Beholding a New Day

Our Heavenly Father, we rejoice and humbly receive your precious gift of a new day.  Our hopes burn brighter as we give thanks for your blessing of this gift.  Amen.

Emerging each morning, a new dawn

Waiting outside our door, neatly wrapped

Walking next to us, God understands

Bringing us love, never feeling trapped


Designing His gift, a new day calls

Witnessing God’s deeds, each day unfolds

Allowing us, to live out each day

Feeling His Grace, hearts never grow old


Guarding us during times of trouble

Opening gates each day, His stronghold

Trusting in God, never forsaken

Singing His praises, humble yet bold


Kneeling and praying, as this day ends

Rejoicing, in all our Father sends

From Psalm 9:10:  “And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.”

Tell God you are ready to be offered, and God will prove Himself to be all you ever dreamed He would be.

From 2 Timothy 4:6-8:  “As for me, I am already being poured out as a libation, and the time of my departure has come.  I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.  From now on there is reserved for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give me on that day, and not only to me but also to all who have longed for His appearing.”

Oswald Chambers Quote

The real delight of hearing God is tempered with shame in having been so long in hearing Him.

From Exodus 20:18-20:  “When all the people witnessed the thunder and lightning, the sound of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking, they were afraid and trembled and stood at a distance, and said to Moses, ‘You speak to us, and we will listen; but do not let God speak to us, or we will die.’  Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid; for God has come only to test you and to put the fear of Him upon you so that you do not sin.'”

God Walks Ahead

From the words of Moses

Don’t fear, be unafraid

Our Lord will fight for us

Standing firm, comes His aid


Protecting evermore

God stands everlasting

Delivers from bondage

His love, full and lasting


Sending His Son to earth

Jesus’ footprints cry out

Step in line, follow me

His peace reigns, without doubt


Crying out to our Lord

Consumed by life’s furnace

Covered by eagles’ wings

Follow Him with sureness


Darkened tomb found empty

Jesus overcoming death

Knowing God’s in control

Stay faithful, with each breath


Father always with us

Never forsaking us

His hope, comforting us

Walking ahead of us

From Exodus 14:13-14:  “But Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid, stand firm, and see the deliverance that the Lord will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you see today you shall never see again.  The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to keep still.'”
