Another August First. God has been so faithful to not only uphold me and strengthen me – every August 1st and the random days in between when my faith begins to wobble – but to also send me a personal encouragement – something seemingly insignificant to others but, for me, as if straight from Heaven to my heart. I’ve begun to look for these special things…anticipate them. Eager for a reminder. A smile from Heaven – from my sweet boy. I’m not superstitious or wanting to sound silly but I do know God is a personal Heavenly father who knows our hearts, and our hurts, and who wants us to know Him and how much He cares.
Sunday, a song was sung at church that I have never heard before. It has probably been around for ages but it was new to me. And I have been listening to it – and singing it – ever since. Whatever heartache, hurt or challenge you might face today, or in the days ahead, I pray these lyrics will encourage you too.
