Blessed Assurance

There is so much to pray about that I don’t even know where to start.  Our country’s leaders.  The people sorting through rubbish and trying to pick up their lives after Hurricane Ike.  My brother-in-law’s brain tumor.  Safety for my husband as he comes back home from a long week away at work.  The economic turmoil everywhere I look.  The teachers in Dallas who will be losing their jobs due to last year’s 64 million dollar budget shortfall.  Problems in the marriages of some dear friends.  And the unmentionable requests that my Father in heaven already knows about.

At times like these, when I feel pressed and crushed under the weight — these are the times that I get lost in  the Lord, usually through music.

This song is for you, Mom.  And it’s for Dan.  And it’s for everyone who needs some assurance that God is in control.  He will not falter.  He will not desert us.

Thank you, Third Day, for blessing us with your rendition of this favorite old hymn:
