Day 4 :: We are never forsaken (A Puritan Prayer)

“I bless thee for tempering every distress with joy;

too much of the former might weigh me down,

too much of the latter might puff me up;

Thou art wise to give me a taste of both.

I love thee

for giving me clusters of grapes in the wilderness,

and drops of heavenly wine

that set me longing to have my fill.

Apart from thee I quickly die,

bereft of thee I starve,

far from thee I thirst and droop;

But thou art all I need.

Let me continually grasp the promise,

‘I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.’ ”

-excerpt from The Valley of Vision-


Today, may you be reminded that God will never forsake you. May you rejoice in the wisdom of God to give you all things.  May you taste of the heavenly and long for Jesus.  Whether you are in want or enjoying plenty, He is all you need.  Run to Him today and bless the Lord.
