even though

though You send me no husband (even though You have the entire planet and everyone in it at Your command, from which to select someone especially for me)-still, I will trust only in You.

even though my book does not sell – still, I will continue writing about Your great love and endless mercy

even when no one reads my blog – still, I will pour out my heart to You, proclaiming Your truth, praising Your name, acknowledging my need . . .

even when I must rise before dawn – I will give You thanks for my job

even when my tire light comes on (again and again) – I will give You thanks for my car

when I am lonely – I will rejoice in Your presence abiding with me

when I am weary – I will rest in Your strength which sustains me

when I am filled with pain – I will be grateful for Your comfort

when I feel invisible – I will remember that You know every hair on my head and You see the way that I take – I am not invisible to You because “My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place.  When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body.” (Psalm 139:15-16)

when my dearest dreams lie dead and buried, I will remember that You are the God of the impossible, “the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were.”  (Romans 4:17b) – I will hope only in You

when those I love most don’t seem to love You – still, I will persist in prayer, for You have said, ” . . . at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”  (Galatians 6:9)

even when I am not where I want to be – I will give You thanks and praise, trusting I am where You want me to be

I will trust in Your sovereignty, O God

I will rejoice in Your sovereignty, Heavenly Father

I will rest in Your sovereignty, Lord

I will give thanks to You in all circumstances because You are sovereign over all circumstances, events and peoples

I will hope only in You, for You are sovereign, Lord

“Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior.”  (Habakkuk 3:17-18)

“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again:  Rejoice!”  (Philippians 4:4)

sincerely,      Grace Day
