The future or things that are now
No power below or above
Can make You Your purpose forego
Or sever my soul from Your love
Today was one of those days where I wanted to tell God that the plan that I had for my future was better than what we're experiencing now. We sang the song above, Debtor to Mercy Alone, at our church's college group and these few verses were what I needed to be reminded of. Nothing can make God's purpose forego, even comas, and there is a great purpose in this trial. And nothing, even my sinful thoughts, can separate our souls from His love.
My sins of pride and disbelief today are worthy of sending me to hell. Just those few uncontrolled thoughts. But because Jesus died on the cross for my sins, these sinful thoughts are forgiven. God provides lavish grace to believe true things about Him.
The sidewalk was completed today. Please pray that the paving company would begin the driveway soon so that Ian can come home on Monday. If all goes as planned, only five days until Ian's seven months in a hospital are over. But as we've learned several times through this, the heart of man plans his ways but the Lord establishes his steps (Prov. 16:9)
