As I read through a testimony yesterday from one of the famous God fearing ladies of our time, I was so surprised to read about all that had happened to her. I had not known her story, and by reading it and understanding where she had come from I was able to appreciate the words of wisdom that she was writing even more. She had been there. She had trusted in the Lord and called out to Him, and He had answered her.
The lyrics from the song, “Lord reign in me” have a verse that speaks about the kind of testimony that we want to have when walking with God:
As I read through this testimony yesterday, that was what I was able to see threaded through a story of great trial and difficulty: The consistent beauty of the Lord.
Psalm 17 vs 6-7
“I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer. Show me the wonders of your great love, you who save by your right hand.”
May the choices I make and the life that I live today reflect the wonders of His great love and the beauty of my Lord.
