What a blessing that I know these things. When life gets crazy and the trail a bit rough, I have truth to hang onto. In these moments where I am powerless the truth starts flooding back to my mind through songs and old hymns, Bible verses and testimonies. Sometimes God whispers the truth to me in beautiful pictures in my mind and if I focus on him and allow him to get my attention I can even hear the truth more clearly.
God is so good. God is so good. God is so good. He's so
good to me.
He is so good to me. He has my best in mind.
When peace like a river attendeth my soul. When sorrows like sea
billows roll. Whatever my lot thou hast taught me to say, "It is
well. It is well with my soul."
You have taught me Jesus. Let your peace flow over my anxious soul. Whatever my lot dear Lord, whatever you have planned.
"For I know the plans I have for you" declares the Lord, "Plans to prosper
you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and future."
Yes, Lord, your plans are good and you've known them forever! I trust your plans for us.
I long to tell you amazing news of what God is doing in our lives outwardly, but for now we continue on waiting to see what that is. I can tell you he is doing mighty works in our lives inwardly. Though I know that's not as dramatic a story to tell, it is the critical piece of his puzzle.
My prayer is that you know the truth. Life is far too confusing to try to navigate it alone. Not only that but we have an enemy who's desire is to get us off track, keep our eyes off our leader, and fill our hearts with lies.
