Wednesday’s Word: Psalm 66:2
I loved this part of Lynn Austin’s Until We Reach Home! On the entire journey thus far, Ludwig constantly encourages Sofia with Bible verses. This time, however, he is discouraged beyond words and, though she tries, no verse she shows him breaks his despondency. But then, she remembers her precious Mama. Thank God for spiritual Mamas!
Sofia remembered the above verse and then she thought of her mother’s favorite hymn. It’s a very old one, but so beautiful – and so true. Please take a moment to listen to it and allow your heart to be refreshed.
Did you notice the last three verses?
From the Lord His children sever;
Unto them His grace He showeth,
And their sorrows all He knoweth.
Praise the Lord in joyful numbers:
Your Protector never slumbers;
At the will of your Defender
Every foeman must surrender.
Though He giveth or He taketh,
God His children ne’er forsaketh;
His the loving purpose solely
To preserve them pure and holy.
They remind me of Romans 8:28
