one thousand gifts {2709-2736}

I know Who goes before me.
I know Who stands behind.
The God of angel armies
is always by my side.
{Chris Tomlin’s “Whom Shall I Fear“}

When I first heard this song on my way to work not-so-bright and very early Monday morning, I fell in love with it. It’s catchy and chock-full-o’ truth! I hummed the chorus all morning long and it even came back on the radio on my lunch break. Score! God used this new song to bring much joy to my Monday.

And nothing formed against me shall stand
You hold the whole world in Your hands
I’m holding onto Your promises
You are faithful
{Chris Tomlin’s “Whom Shall I Fear“}

It’s amazing to me how God can take the same song and apply it to my heart in a different respect. In a matter of just a few days, He used this song once again–this time to bring comfort to my heart and encourage me to trust His sovereign hand. When you’re hit with something you don’t expect, you have to trust that God knows what is best and trust His promises. I’m so thankful that though everything around me may change, HE IS FAITHFUL.

Whom–and what–then shall I fear?

Since reading One Thousand Gifts, I started my own journal of grace-gifts God blesses me with every day. I will spare listing all of them here, but I will try to share some of my favorites every Monday.
