Day by Day

Note: Please turn off my music playlist at the bottom of this page before starting the video.

When Lina (the Swedish writer of this hymn) was 26, her father (a devout minister) fell overboard and drowned right before her eyes. This tragic experience did not make her bitter or angry at God; instead, she chose to live each day with the conscious presence and strength of her Lord and continued to express a childlike faith/a deep & peaceful trust in Him day by day.

"Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." Hebrews 4:16

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

I couldn't imagine going through that and then penning these words...I think I'd have some "working/sorting" to do first!
Thanks for stopping by!

I didn't know the story behind this hymn. When our Sarah died, a friend sent us this song so it's a special one of mine.
