Concerns...

~ Beside Still Waters ~

"The Lord will accomplish what concerns me;
Thy loving kindness, O Lord, is everlasting;
Do not forsake the works of Thy hands."
Psalm 138:8


My concerns seem to be multiplied lately, as I am sure many of you feel the same way. I find such comfort in knowing that the things that concern me, concern God. Since He can do the impossible, and nothing is too hard for Him...then as I submit to His will, His desires, lay my concerns at His feet, I can have confidence that He is working for good those things that concern me. I encourage you to be comforted knowing that even in the midst of your concern, God is working.

God is Sovereign ....it's something we all need to remember.... that whatever our circumstances, He is in control and not one thing comes as a surprise to Him. Things can hit us and knock the wind right out of us and drop us flat on our behinds....and all the time God must be thinking, "I've got you..I've never dropped you before and I won't drop you now."


"Thou hast enclosed me behind and before,
and laid thy hand on me."
Psalm 139:5


He is behind us, before us and His hand is upon us...
What an awesome God!
