Isaiah is full of the promises of God. This evening I was looking up verses on lacking strength and I came across this one. Powerful.
“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.”
That was a source of encouragement as I have worked all day and things are beginning to not look so haphazard. This evening Od wanted some quality time and so we went into the living room and tried to figure out which chair to unload so we could sit.
Tomorrow is Sunday and I am playing the piano. Always a thrill. Always have a sense of providing nourishment to the soul of the people through music. Two weeks ago I played a beautiful arrangement of Rock of Ages – – it held a bit of chime effect and simply a different, beautiful piece of music. The deciding factor for everyone feeling the praise factor through that piece of music was because they knew the song and thus, it could speak to them. Yes. There are times when music can speak almost as loud as words.
I always wondered what it would feel like to be an old woman and play the piano. Would my eyes and my mind hold up? Would my hands fly across the keys or would they all be stilled?
I read so much in the Word about God using people in their 70’s and onward. Never once realizing that he might do the same for me. And He has.
“Bless the Lord O my soul, and all that is within me, Bless His Holy Name”.
I am beginning to not do as much each day and let more flow into the next day, since I have quite a few days before the move will actually take place.
Annie Johnson Flint was born 12/24/1866 and died 9/8/1932. One hymn she wrote speaks volumes of God’s limitless riches for us. It is entitled, “He Giveth More Grace”.
The chorus reads, “His love has no limits, His grace has no measure, His power no boundary known unto men, for out of His infinite riches in Jesus, He giveth, and giveth and giveth again.”
This is a hymn most for consoling the bruised and hurting person, but for me in my tired state, I find a great deal of comfort in the words and I know the music to it too, so I am doubly blest.
He does. He is limitless in His love, security and well-keeping of His children. Do you belong to Him? If not, you should. You are missing out on the greatest Gifts and the limitlessness of them as well. He can bestow upon us grace, mercy, peace and strength to carry on when strength is at low ebb. He is sufficient for me. He can be for you too.
In His care, right now.
