10. Forever in His Care | 31 Days

This is post 10/31 of Write 31 Days. See full list HERE.

I was on Pinterest or Instagram the other day and I saw a quote that went something like, “My favorite childhood memory is not paying bills.”

Can I get a witness? Adulthood is wonderful, to be sure, but I do miss the simplicity of my childhood.

I was going through some of my old writing and I came across the lyrics to one of my absolute favorite songs of all times. As a music lover and a book nerd, the term “favorite” is not something I can easily assign but this song will always be one of them.

I don’t think there was ever a time when I didn’t know it but sometimes I forget the truth in the lyrics I know by heart. They’re a beautiful reminder that I don’t have to worry about a thing. God has promised to take care of me no matter what I’m going through.

“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

Deuteronomy 31:6

So here’s a piece of my childhood. It’s by First Call and was originally on their 1987 album Somethin’ Takes Over.

Yeah, lol just a bit before my time. Just a bit.

Anyway, I hope it blesses you as it has me for the past 25 years.

Forever In His Care

There was a time when I would fret about the time that lies ahead

Until the time my Savior said “You are Mine, never forget.”

So why should I worry if it shines or rains?

I’m safe and warm under His wings

I’m in no hurry for an earthly thing

I’m forever in His care

Troubles come and troubles go

Can’t change a thing by worrying so

I’m kissing goodbye to my worldly woes

I’m forever in His care

He robes the meadow with flowers bright

He see the sparrow fall

And though He leads me through the darkest night

I’m sheltered in His wings

Protected through it all

So why should I worry if it shines or rains?

I’m forever in His care?
