"All I have needed, Thy hands hath provided...."

"Here", she says as she hands me the CD. "Track two. It'll make you cry."

I pop the CD into the player and begin to listen, as she heads to get the music to review. She is right. As the music begins, the tears fall. "Great is Thy faithfulness, Oh God, my Father..." When she returns, I say "I want this played at my funeral". "NO!" she says. "This is your LIFE song." Again, she is right. She knows me too well.

I think back through the years... "... all I have needed, Thy hands hath provided...." It's true. Even before I was aware of the pain, the sorrow, the needs... they were met. Through my darkest moments, I was never alone.

"Great is Thy Faithfulness, Lord unto me". My LIFE song. Thank you God.
