I wanted to share the words to a song that was sung as a special today in church that was a great comfort and encouragement to me.
When my life seems dark and drear and the future I don't know,
My heart feels so empty as the tears unending flow.
When my heart breaks with sorrow and a tempest fills my soul,
This one thing I know for sure: my God is in control.
When the toils of life are come and my heart is worn with care,
I faint 'neath the burden of a cross I cannot bear.
When the joy has departed from my sorry stricken soul,
This one thing I know for sure; my God is in control.
His way is perfect. His way is perfect.
When I don't understand wise and loving plan, His way is perfect.
His way is pefect. Take my life and make a vessel purified.
God makes no mistakes; His way is best.
So wherever you are in life right now, in a valley or on the moutaintop, rest in the fact that God is in control. And even when you don't understand His way and His timing is best.
This has been hard for me to remember recently so this was a great encouragement to me today - to remember that God is in control even when I don't feel like it. And His way and timing is best - I just need to wait and trust on Him.
How is the Lord working in your life right now? Feel free to share in a comment or send me an email.
