fullness of joy

Well, October is here. Which means I am swooning and my head is in the clouds. I love October. So much. It rained twice this week. Twice! That doesn't happen often in Chihuahua.

Right now I am house-sitting for a friend, and I welcomed October with a big mug of chai tea as I wrapped up in a blanket on a rocker and let the Lord speak lovely things over me and remind me of His beautiful promises.

At staff meeting on Wednesday, a co-worker shared the lyrics of this hymn, and I just love all of the affirmation it carries:

  1. He giveth more grace as our burdens grow greater,
    He sendeth more strength as our labors increase;
    To added afflictions He addeth His mercy,
    To multiplied trials He multiplies peace.
  2. When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
    When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
    When we reach the end of our hoarded resources
    Our Father’s full giving is only begun.
  3. Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision,
    Our God ever yearns His resources to share;
    Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing;
    The Father both thee and thy load will upbear.
  4. His love has no limits, His grace has no measure,
    His power no boundary known unto men;
    For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
    He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.
"He Giveth More Grace"-Annie J. Flint

I'm looking forward to all this month has in store, because as always, He gives grace upon grace upon grace...

  1. I read this poem a long time ago and have part of it written in my Bible. It was so good to read it again and be reminded of how much the Lord gives! Over and over and more abundantly when we need it!
