The Lord has established His throne in heaven, and His kingdom rules over all.
When I was little, I trusted my parents and was sure they knew everything. As I grew older, I realized that my parents trusted the Lord and had faith in His omnipotence. It wasn’t something I was told. It was something I saw, and I felt secure.
Before every meal we said the blessing. We never went hungry and thanking God for our food gave me faith that He had and would provide for us. Each night during our family devotionals I head scriptures and stories of God’s provision.
The unrest of life was tempered by their example at home.
In the journal Mother wrote, “It was a ten year old boy’s time to say grace at the dinner table. He prayed, ‘Dear God, thank you for the meatloaf and salad and bread and all the other stuff. And God, please don’t let anything happen to you or we’re all sunk! Amen.”
Dear Father, Thank you for all you do for me from the tiniest want to the greatest need. Thank you for your promises that make me feel secure. Without you, I am sunk!
