Trust His Heart 

24 02 2016

Grief, questions, uncertainty of our future have pushed their way into our lives in the last several weeks. We have faced several major disappointments in a short time. 

It has been one of the toughest times in my life. I feel like I’m trying to hold up a large slab of rock that just keeps getting heavier. Why must everything happen all at the same time?

“Trust,” my mom says. “Things seem overwhelming right now, but God has a plan we can’t see.” 

Trust. I’ve been lying awake in my bed, thinking about it. And I realize it’s not something that will just happen. I must choose it.

The lyrics of the song, “Trust His Heart” begins to to run through my mind. The phrase “when you don’t understand, when you can’t trace his hand, trust his heart”  repeats itself over and over. 

So I choose to trust. I know it will be a choice I must make daily, perhaps hourly, but the alternative is bitterness and I simply cannot afford to allow its seeds to sprout in my heart. 

In the meantime, I will ask Jesus to get under that slab of rock with me to help support the weight. 

Trust His Heart – Babbie Mason

All things work for our good

Though sometimes we don’t

See how they could

Struggles that break our hearts in two

Sometimes blind us to the truth

Our Father knows what’s best for us

His ways are not our own

So when your pathway grows dim

And you just don’t see him,

Remember your never alone


He sees the master plan

He holds the future in his hand,

So don’t live as those who have no hope,

ALL our hope is found in him.

We see the present clearly

He sees the first and last

And like a tapestry He’s weaving you and me,

To someday be just like him


God is too wise to be mistaken

God is too good to be unkind

So when you don’t understand

When don’t see his plan

When you can’t trace his hand

Trust His Heart

Andrea, what’s up? Do you have time to describe what’s making your boulder heavier and heavier? Yes! Yes! Please do allow Jesus to hold this boulder for you! I love you, Janelle

Andrea, I have no idea what is going on in your life right now. But I pray that you will feel God’s presence there with you holding up your rock for you. You continue to be an inspiration to me in the way you deal with what life brings you. Is it easy? I’m very sure not, yet you seem to gracefully accept what is happening. I pray that God bless you and Joe with strength and grace in this hard and difficult time. Blessings, Janita

It is so true, we can’t afford to let bitterness take root in our lives. I’ll keep praying.

Andrea, I don’t know what you’re going thru, but God does and so I’ll bring you to Him in prayer. I heard this song for the first time during one of the lowest times of my life and is one of my favs…it is still hard for me to hear it or sing it without tears. Praying that you’ll feel a hug from God today because your are precious to Him and He loves you. Is 43
