God was so gracious to give me a good thought today- in the midst of all the impatient and irritable type thoughts that have been swirling around in my mind! :)
I have a devotional book I read called The Valley of Vision. It is a collection of old puritan prayers. Today I read:
I can come to thee in my need
and feel peace beyond understanding!
The grace that restores is necessary to preserve,
lead, guard, supply, help me...
Every new duty calls for more grace than I now possess,
but not more than is found in thee, the divine treasury
in whom all fullness dwells.
I especially like the part about God giving us grace for
every new duty- and I feel like He is assigning a new "duty" to me tomorrow,
in the form of a brand new little one. I'm so grateful for the strength
that He promises and daily provides.
Hopefully we'll have some news to post the next time I write on this blog!
