Colin’s Wise Wednesday – 27th February 2019

When I started out on our devotion on Monday I had it all planned in my mind. Then I heard my phone “beep”,  I normally ignore it if I’m busy but for some reason I looked at the message. It was a very dear friend of ours. Her 9 year old granddaughter had been declared clear from cancer on the 6th June 2018 after 10 weeks of intensive treatment. Lots of praising God and thanksgiving prayers. Her message this morning was “Georgia’s tumour is back”. I had no words for her yesterday, I was devastated and I am still battling today as I dedicate this devotion to Georgia and her family.

One cannot imagine what they are going through and as Georgia’s Gran said in her message ”not sure how a 9 year old manages to deal with this” and of course how can her Mom, Dad, Brother and Gran cope?  While pondering the situation I played a gospel CD and listened intently to the words to try and find some words of comfort for a family that has had a rollercoaster ride of emotions and faith. I still have no words but these words are all extracts from choruses I was listening to:

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You've never failed and You won't start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Saviour

He wraps himself in light
And darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice

How great is our God

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness

Christ alone, Cornerstone
Weak made strong in the Savior's love
Through the storm
He is Lord
Lord of all

When darkness seems to hide His face
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil

Christ alone, Cornerstone

There's no one like You
None like You

Into the darkness You shine
Out of the ashes we rise
There's no one like You
None like You

Our God is Healer
Awesome in power
Our God, Our God

Higher than the mountains that I face
Stronger than the power of the grave
Constant through the trial and the change
One thing remains

Your love never fails, and never gives up
It never runs out on me


Without You I fall apart
You're the One that guides my heart

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defence, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

Where grace is found is where You are
Where You are, Lord, I am free.


Amen. Amen.

God Bless ~Lyn & Colin
