As I have been going about my daily routine, I keep getting sidetracked.
I feel a little overwhelmed- I pause to try and regain a sense of direction. I try and focus a little, and then I feel pulled in a different direction.
I keep reminding myself to focus on what is most important.
I sing to myself when I am happy,
when I am troubled,
when I am thoughtful,
when I am searching for answers,
when I am bored.
And this is the song (I believe in Christ) that keeps going through my head ...
I believe in Christ; he is my King!
With all my heart to him I'll Sing;
I'll raise my voice in praise and joy,
In grand amens my tongue employ.
I believe in Christ; he is God's Son.
On earth to dwell his soul did come.
He healed the sick; the dead he raised.
Good works were his; his name be praised.
I believe in Christ; oh blessed name.
As Mary's Son he came to reign
'Mid mortal men, his earthly kin,
To save them from the woes of sin.
I believe in Christ, who marked the path,
Who did gain all his Father hath,
Who said to men, "Come follow me,
That ye, my friends, with God may be."
I believe in Christ- my Lord, my God!
My feet he plants on gospel sod.
I'll worship him with all my might;
He is the source of truth and light.
I believe in Christ; he ransoms me.
From Satan's grasp he sets me free,
And I shall live with joy and love
In his eternal courts above.
I believe in Christ; he stands supreme!
From him I'll gain my fondest dream;
And while I strive through grief and pain,
His voice is heard: "Ye shall obtain."
I believe in Christ; so come what may,
With him I'll stand in that great day
When on this earth he comes again
To rule among the sons of men.
I think that it might have been because of the middle line in the 4th verse "so come what may"
that I have had this song on my mind today.
There has been so much topsy turvey stuff going on- recovering from sickness, being with out electricity, car repairs, things not going as planed, broken dishes, missing shoes, preparing for Christmas, and vacations, preparing for a baptism, having the electricity go out again for a while-
sometimes you just feel full....as in done, enough. Ready for things to slow down or just stop.
I needed to remember ...
I can handle things-
I have strength-
I know where to turn-
He will ease our burdens and make them light on our backs.
"so come what may"
I believe in Christ.
