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.
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
