Friday's Crush #9

A few days ago I had a follow-up doctor's appointment and was feeling a bit nervous.
I really had nothing to be nervous about, honestly, but nevertheless, a feeling of worry came over me as I walked into the doctor's office.

As I was having my ultrasound done by the technician, all I could think about was how the Lord has blessed me. He has not only given me good health over the years, but he has blessed me with a family I enjoy being around and learning from. There were so many things I was thanking God for while I was talking with Him during that appointment and then suddenly, all my fears and worries disappeared. It really is quite amazing how worry-free we can be if we just rest-assured in God's Word and His promises, isn't it?

A song that comes to mind during my feelings of doubt or worry is "How Great Thou Art.
There is something special about the lyrics to an older hymn, you know?

In case you haven't heard of the song or are unsure what it is about, here are the lyrics.

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

Verse 2:
When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.


Verse 3:
And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.


Verse 4:
When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration,
And then proclaim: "My God, how great Thou art!"


And He is great!
I love this song and its meaning and I hope you find it enjoyable and meaningful too!
Take some time to thank God for his blessings in your might be pleasantly surprised at what you find!

Happy weekend and thanks for stopping by!
