I am blessed

Last winter I took up singing in Leendert Kooy's choir (the OMCA concerts). It was such a blessing to sing praises and have fun times and fellowship with people of all ages. One of the song arrangements we learned was especially an encouragement to me both during that time and still now. It has reminded me time and again to bless the Lord, even when I least feel like it.

I am blessed.

Thru sunshine and rain, even sorrow and pain,
Jesus is my comfort and my guide;
For His love for me and His grace has set me free,
And some day I shall stand by His side!

I am blessed, I am blessed!
Every day that I'm living I am blessed!
When I wake up in the morning till I lay my head to rest,
I am blessed, I am blessed...

I've shoes for my feet, I have plenty to eat,
And a home in heaven by and by.
And through my new birth, brothers sisters here on earth,
We shall share in that home beyond the sky!

.... ..... .....

He gives you more grace when the burdens grow greater,
He sends you more strength when the labours increase;
To added affliction He's adding His mercy;
To multiplied trials He multiplies peace...

His love has no limit, His grace has no measure;
His power has no boundary known unto men.
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,
He's giving, and giving, and giving again!

And when we've exhausted our store of endurance,
Our strength may have failed ere the day is half done.
When reaching the end of our human resources,
Our Father's full giving is only begun.
