God…sometimes I wonder if You blinked for just a moment,
And let things go beyond what I can bear.
It seems to be much harder than I ever could imagine;
But yet, oh Lord, I know that You are there.
My head tells me You’re faithful, for You have been through the years;
My heart is most insistent that it’s true.
So even though the darkest clouds I’ve ever seen hang o’er me,
I’ll keep on holding tightly, Lord, to You.
And I will trust that You’ve not blinked, or looked the wrong direction;
But that I’m still held tightly in Your hand.
No matter how the storms of life are raging all around me,
Each moment of each day is in Your plan.
And, Lord, Your plan for me is always best.
So help me, in Your will and way, to rest.
“‘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 a future.’”
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
