my comfort.

Aug 20, 2009

these powerful words were written over 100 years ago and i sing them to my claire everyday.

’tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
just to take Him at His word.
just to rest upon His promise,
and to know thus saith the Lord.
Jesus Jesus how i trust Him,
how I’ve proved him o’er and o’er.
Jesus Jesus precious Jesus,
oh for grace to trust Him more.

the other day when i was in a panic, fearful and almost shaking as claire was having a very difficult time- all of the sudden a voice spoke inside me saying “i know this is hard. and it’s going to be hard for awhile. but it will get better. she is going to be able to do so much more than you know now. it will be okay. it is hard now but it will get better.” and then my body became calm and still. you have to understand- i knew that voice was not my own because i was about to break down. and i’m not crazy either so don’t think i’m hearing strange voices or something. i know that voice. it was my rock, my redeemer, my sanity, my everything, my Jesus.

    You are a strong woman and a beautiful mama to Claire. I hope she knows one day just how blessed she is to have been given to you guys…I think she will.
