Day by Day…..Moment by Moment

Today was not a normal day…..not by any stretch of the imagination.  I won’t go into a lot of details, but I can honestly say looking back, God had a reason for EVERY single trial in my life today.  And the great thing was, I could see the fruit of it right away. (Wonder if that means I passed. 🙂  It’s by God’s grace that I was able to overcome some of these trials and temptations. I really do wonder how people do without Him! How they survive. As I was driving the long drive home from school this evening I couldn’t help but sing to my constant Companion of the day. This song was on my heart and I don’t know of a better song to apply to today than this!

Day by Day
by Carolina S. Berg
Day by day and with each passing moment,
Strength I find to meet my trials here;
Trusting in my Father’s wise bestowment,
I’ve no cause for worry or for fear.
He whose heart is kind beyond all measure
Gives unto each day what He deems best–
Lovingly, its part of pain and pleasure,
Mingling toil with peace and rest.
Ev’ry day the Lord Himself is near me
With a special mercy for each hour;
All my cares He fain would bear, and cheer me,
He whose name is Counselor and Pow’r.
The protection of His child and treasure
Is a charge that on Himself He laid;
One by one, the days, the moments fleeting, 
Till I reach the promised land.
Help me then in ev’ry tribulation
So to trust Thy promises, O Lord,
That I lose not faith’s sweet consolation
Offered me within Thy holy Word.
Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,
E’er to take, as from a father’s hand,
One by one, the days the moments fleeting, 
Till I reach the promised land.
