“tune my heart to sing Thy grace”

September 26, 2014 by 5 Comments

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog. It is a joy for me to write and it some ways it’s how I process everything that is going on around me! I write so that I may remember and learn from the providence of God. I have been keeping a journal since the early age of 10!! Yet, writing has always been a way I process and I’ve missed writing here on this blog!

Honestly, in this new season it’s hard to find the time to write my thoughts out. Right now my kids are out back playing and I can see them running around and for this moment enjoying each other. Though I don’t know how long that means I have to actually finish this post. But in this moment, Praise the LORD that they are playing with each other and from the window I can see them having fun with dirt, side walk chalk, sand bucket and a bunch of random toys that end up outside in our toy box!

What should I say?

Should I describe how the Lord is daily making a way for us? How He is showing Himself to be tender to me in my grief? How He continues to be faithful when often at times I am not? His grace truly is my standing place? Even when my circumstance is not what I was hoping for, He is giving me grace to take one day at a time, even one moment at a time. It doesn’t always look pretty, but by His grace He is Keeping me.

I am seeking to train my heart in thankfulness! We are not born with this, if you haven’t noticed!  Oh and I have a journey ahead of me to learn the art of gratefullness!  This “tune my heart to sing Thy grace” is a plead for the Lord to work in our hearts and teach us! He is willing and promises to lead the humble in His way!  And Jesus example of humility with joy is amazing!   “Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:2).

“Come, Thou Fount of every blessing,

Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;

Streams of mercy, never ceasing,

Call for songs of loudest praise.”

 

He is providing fellowship for me, two Bible studies to be a part of, help with my children, and even some evenings off to go run at my favorite park (thanks to my sis in law!)! He is providing. I don’t know how it will look in the future. Yet RIGHT NOW, God is providing. And I am even now reminding myself this truth right now as I type.  He even led a family in our church to want to pay someone to come and clean my home twice a month!  Friends, this shows the heart of God towards those who suffer.  Though He has bruised me, He promises not to crush me!  Praise Him for His mercy!

God truly gives me reason to rejoice! My greatest need has been met in Christ! I have been forgiven!

Thank you for ALL your prayers for me and my 3 littles! Please continue to pray! I know the Lord is using the prayers to sustain and strengthen us in this sorrowful time of missing my beloved Marky and my dear Momma. Thankful they are in Glory with Jesus! 

Here’s a couple of pictures of the kids near the end of Summer! So very thankful for these three!

    I linked my way through cyberspace to your blog, and have read a few of your posts. I just wanted to say that I am so very for your loss, and I commend you for praising God even through this great sorrow and grief. In doing so you bring Him even greater glory, and you set forth an example to all who come in contact with you of what trust and faith are all about. I will pray for you and your children, and I wish you all the best. May God’s peace remain with you always.
