One time I was worried about my future, but God was faithful. The next time, I worried again. But God was faithful. And then, I worried yet again! But, to my surprise, God was faithful. I wish my story sounded more like this: one time when I was a little girl I got scared during a thunderstorm. However, God comforted me that night. Ever since then, because of that one time He was there for me, I have never doubted again. But, no. Sadly, I routinely doubt and struggle in my faith. A single roach can change the course of my life, but not God. Ridiculous, but true.
I was reminded of one of the verses from the old hymn, Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing, and identify with the author:
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.
