Thank You

Just this today,

Just these few repeated lines,

These few simple rhymes,

Inspired by a quote I found here.


Thank You
inspired by a quote by Ann Voskamp

It's so hard
Sometimes.
It's so hard
Sometimes.
Will things be
Alright?
Will things be
Alright?

It's so hard
Sometimes.
It's so hard
Sometimes.
Will we be
Alright?
Will we be
Alright?

If I believe in You,
If I believe in You,
Then I must believe in what You said.


If I believe it's true,
If I believe it's true,
Then it's still true when the storm's overhead.

If I believe in You,
If I believe in You,
Then I must believe the promise You gave.

If I believe it's true,
If I believe it's true,
Then I know somehow You will save.

And I know it's all grace.

It's so hard
Sometimes.
It's so hard
Sometimes,
When the silence
Is so wide,
When the pain is
Too high,
When I'm harried
And weakened,
When I'm troubled
And broken.

But in the silent times,
I will seek You.
In the painful times,
I will praise You. 
In the harried times,
I will hallow You.
In the troubled times,
I will trust You.
And at all times,
At all times,
I will thank You.




Thanking Him today and always for neverending abundant grace.

Thank you for this rich post, Mary. It blessed me. We're all a bit of a mess - or, more than a bit! My first thoughts at the idea of being unknowingly a mentor are just like you described - wondering what awful blunders I may have been making. And yet, that precious thought: that we might each be an "angel" to someone without even realizing it, and that God in His grace is working through us even in our imperfections, so that we help each other along the road of Life, along the road toward Him!

Hi, Sylvia!
I'm so glad this (http://maryschieferstein.blogspot.com/2011/12/how-you-might-be-angel-and-not-even.html) touched you today! It is such a strange and worrisome thought, yet so beautiful and wonderful to see Him use the imperfect and unqualified! And what a blessing to help one another! Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this!
