Trusting Him Moment By Moment

I have always loved the song, Day By Day.  It says,

Day by day, and with each passing moment,

strength I find to meet my trials here,

Trusting in my Father’s wise bestowment,

I’ve no cause for worry or for fear.

He, whose heart is kind beyond all measure,

Gives unto each day what He deems best,

Lovingly its part of pain and pleasure,

Mingling toil with peace and rest.

However, when I was speaking with a friend recently and she asked how I was doing I honestly said, “I’m all right at the moment!  Forget ‘day by day'”, I laughed.  “I need the Lord to help me each minute!”  I was referring to my migraines – I can be fine, then in an hour be struck low with a splitting headache.  I’ve learned not to say “I don’t have a headache today.”  One can pop up so quickly!  Yes, it’s trusting the Lord moment by moment for my very life.

Migraine sufferers aren’t the only ones in need of God’s grace each moment – every child of God stands with the same need.  One minute we’re being obedient, trusting His Word, standing strong in His Truths, the next, something happens and we’re filled with doubt, tempted to sin or disobey.  Moment by moment we need Him.  Moment by moment He sustains us.

It’s taken you a moment to read this – He still has you in His care.  In another moment, He will provide your needs as He did in the past.  The next moments will find His grace sufficient for whatever you’re experiencing!  Trust Him for each moment!

Moment By Moment – Daniel Whittle

Dying with Jesus, by death reckoned mine;

Living with Jesus, a new life divine;

Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine,

Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.


Moment by moment I’m kept in His love;

Moment by moment I’ve life from above;

Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine;

Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.

Never a trial that He is not there,

Never a burden that He doth not bear,

Never a sorrow that He doth not share,

Moment by moment, I’m under His care.

Never a heartache, and never a groan,

Never a teardrop, and never a moan;

Never a danger but there on the throne,

Moment by moment He thinks of His own.

Never a weakness that He doth not feel,

Never a sickness that He cannot heal;

Moment by moment, in woe or in weal,

Jesus my Savior abides with me still.

With love,

One thought on “Trusting Him Moment By Moment

  1. Before I read your post, I had emailed a missionary who inquired about my health problems that I take “one day at a time”-often one “moment”! Then, I read your blog! How true! Thank you.
