In you our fathers put their trust;
they trusted and you delivered
They cried to you and were saved;
in you they trusted
and were not disappointed.
A friend of mine suggested that I use the Psalms to remind me of God's love and compassion. I have chosen this Psalm and will place it in my pocket for the next couple of days to bolster me when I am anxious and stressed in the face of three needful children.
I have already started singing my chosen song too; Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.
What have I to fear, What have I dread.When I worked at Gould Farm, after breakfast and morning meeting we would sing our morning hymn around the piano. This was one of my favorites. It was always such a nice way to start the day. Gould farm was where I experienced God daily in the work, out in nature and in the relationships fostered there. Gould Farm was also the place where God called me to seminary.
Leaning on the ever lasting arm;
I have blessed peace with my Lord so near,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.
Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarm.
Leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms.
So I will lean on the Psalms, an old favorite hymn that gives me hope and my memories of Gould farm as I quietly and patiently open my heart to God's call.
Right this very minute, I am at peace.
