I forget how intimately acquainted He is with all of my ways. I remember common grace, but I forget that He extends His mercy to me in my particular moment of need. I underestimate His ability to fill my emptiness before I even have time to notice the gaping hole. He’s so good, so perfect, so strong. Sometimes that overwhelms me.
Sometimes in a moment of need, I do what’s natural:
I lift my eyes to see Your beauty…
and it takes me by surprise when suddenly He can
still my heart and take my breath away.
I can’t imagine life on earth without the Lord. The clearer that the pain and brokenness of this life becomes, the more my compassion increases towards those who are blind to Hope. My heart aches to see His glory. And I will:
I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
