Tonight I listened to Rich Mullins’ version of All The Way My Savior Leads Me by Fanny Crosby. I was moved once again to the simple faith of a woman blind since childhood. Fanny Crosby is credited with over 8,000 hymns in her life time, including To God Be the Glory and Blessed Assurance. The hymns written years ago can contain an entire church service in the words if you just read them and let them soak inside.
Fanny Crosby was said to have prayed because she had been in need of money, when a man brought to her the money she needed. God provided for her needs again and she wrote in response to her blessing.
How many times have you had God respond to your needs? How many times have you just praised Him for His goodness in caring for you? He loves you dearly. You matter to Him. Be encouraged, He will meet your needs every time. Just open your eyes to see His providence.
I hope these words encourage you today.
