Where Is God? Sunday Glimpses

by Nan Jones  @NanJonesAuthor

Lord God, You are so good. You are so faithful. Your tender mercies rain on us with each new day. Thank You, Lord. Thank You for teaching me these truths. Life is SO hard at times. It overwhelms. Suffocates. Confuses. But yet, there You are Lord. Steady. Calm. Faithful. Oh Lord, open our eyes that we might see. Enlighten our hearts that we might understand the height and the depth, the length and the width of Your great love. It simply astounds me. Many of my friends are struggling with overwhelming circumstances. I bring them before Your throne of grace, and as we bow before You I ask that You would touch them with an abundance of Your grace. Pour the oil of gladness over them. Help them to anticipate beauty from the destruction because You, Lord, are faithful to work all things together for our good when we love You and are called according to Your purposes. You are precious, Lord. You are our strong tower, our shelter in the storm. Thank You for claiming us as Your own. We love You and we give You praise.

  2. Hi Nan! I think you know so many people because of your church, but also because you are an empathetic, compassionate, prayerful person. You can be relied on to care and to intercede. That is a great blessing!
    Hugs,
