When life is complicated

Life has been complicated recently: a member of the household in hospital and, almost certainly, changes when they come home.

We try to carry on but sometimes that feels like walking through the mire.

But we aren't alone.

Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Philippians 4v6

My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.

2 Corinthians 12v9

  1. God holds the key of all unknown,
        And I am glad;
    If other hands should hold the key,
    Or if He trusted it to me,
        I might be sad.
  2. What if tomorrow’s cares were here,
        Without its rest?
    I’d rather He unlocked the day,
    And, as the hours swing open, say,
        My will is best.
  3. The very dimness of my sight
        Makes me secure;
    For, groping in my misty way,
    I feel His hand; I hear Him say,
        My help is sure.
  4. I cannot read His future plans;
        But this I know:
    I have the smiling of His face,
    And all the refuge of His grace
        While here below.
  5. Enough; this covers all my wants;
        And so I rest;
    For what I cannot, He can see,
    And in His care I saved shall be,
        Forever blest.
  6. Joseph Parker


  1. I'm so sorry to hear of one of your family hospitalised. I will be praying that God is with them, and you whilst you process any changes required. I'll be thinking of you.

  2. Sorry to hear this. Praying for your and your family at this time. May God give strength and wisdom.
