Great is Thy faithfulness, oh 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 wilt 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!
So, this week has been one of those weeks. It’s been trying. It’s been hard. It’s been feverish, dizzy, nauseous and painful. It all started last Friday with my oldest having fever from then until Monday when we took her to the doc. Ended up, she had tonsillitis/strep. She passed it on to dear ole mom. By the end of Tuesday, the fever had me feeling like I was walking in slow mo. I took a little trip to our local physician right when the last bell rang at school. It was strep. It was painful. I felt like a knife was in my throat. I haven’t had this kind of sickness for a very long time, but through this week, God calmed me and I know He helped me keep on keepin’ on. My fever went away quickly, but the dizziness and just weakness from the crazy stuff kept me down. It came in waves. One minute I would feel kind of like “OH YEAHHH…” then I would be like “Whoa Bessie” and I’d have to grab on to something so as not to have an embarrassing fall.
Ok, enough of all that sickness talk. BACK TO GOD–He is so good! It’s Friday and after a week of the crazy throat mess, I knew I was to sing this Sunday at church. I’ve been praying and I was not worried at all. God gave me the song this evening after I sat down and started going over a couple of new ones I’d downloaded last weekend. I tried the first one, but really thought that it would be the second one. I started on the second one and couldn’t get it right. So, I said it out loud: Lord, tell me what to sing. He always has THE ONE. And as always HE put it in front of my face. It is a song I’ve sung once before, but it had been a while back. So, I sang it and automatically knew THAT’S THE ONE! The message alone should have told me that. This week I’ve been through so many things that seemed to kind of beat me down, but GOD IS CONSTANT…He sustains me…He supports me, helps me, shows compassion for me, loves me. I love that the more I sing praises to HIM, the MORE He ALLOWS ME to sing!
