HE will guide you...


 "For this God is our God for ever and ever: He will be our guide even unto death." Psalm 48:14

Isn't this verse so comforting? This verse brought me so much joy this morning. Can you believe it? If we've known the Father, or rather are known of Him, we have the promise that God is our God for ever ... and ever. How comforting is that thought?... and then  He continues to give us even more hope. We can rest  in His promise that He will be our guide even unto death. That thought overwhelmed me this morning... and I give Him praise for  His faithfulness to me.

God's mercy is new EVERY morning, and through His word He speaks words of comfort and peace.  We only have to have ears that listen. And to be still before Him. He controls our life path.... and HE goes before us. As I was walking this morning I listened to this song. It was such a blessing to me.

The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
It goes beyond the highest star,
And reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled,
And pardoned from his sin.


O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
The saints’ and angels’ song.

When years of time shall pass away,
And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,
When men, who here refuse to pray,
On rocks and hills and mountains call,
God’s love so sure, shall still endure,
All measureless and strong;
Redeeming grace to Adam’s race—
The saints’ and angels’ song.


Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
And every man a scribe by trade,
To write the love of God above,
Would drain the ocean dry.
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.

Words: Fred­er­ick M. Leh­man; he wrote this song in 1917 in Pas­a­de­na, Cal­i­fornia, and it was pub­lished in Songs That Are Dif­fer­ent, Vol­ume 2, 1919. 

I hope you will be blessed today with the love of the Father.
