O Father You Are Sovereign

O Father, You are sovereign
The Lord of human pain,
Transmuting earthly sorrows
To gold of heavenly gain,
All evil overruling,
As none but Conqueror could,
Your love pursues its purposeó
Our soulsí eternal good.

Learn the whole hymn here.

Since the New Year, I've been using Table Talk from Ligonier Ministries for my daily fellowship time with God. (Thanks Marsupial Mom and Swamphopper!) I'm also using the verse, Westminster Catechism question and hymn as part of Bible time with the boys. The devotional passages each day have been very appropriate for things I've been thinking about and living through recently, both good and hard.

All last week I was humming "What a Friend We Have In Jesus." I don't know this week's hymn very well, so thankfully very unmusical me can learn the tune online.

Kim at Upward Call has been inspired by TableTalk this month, blogging on Worship.

TG-I have been wanting to get Tabletalk for years now, but have struggled to find room in my budget for the two year subscription.

Isn't it such a tender piece to chew on?

I've wanted to subscribe for several years, and I am so thankful that MM and SW have sent it to us as a gift. It definitely is worth it, when you can find the wiggle room to order it. (You might want to call and see if they have any promotionals for it. . .)

I've been very blessed each day by the reading selection. It seems to touch just where I need it most.

That is exactly the reason I would like to receive it :D

So, if you have the time, make a comment or even better, provide a link in a post :D
