Well on to my whole thoughts for this new post. While we were singing hymns this morning there was one I happen to cross while flipping pages that spoke to me. Its called "Be Still My Soul". It really encouraged me while I read the lyrics and I thought someone who has gone through similar losses of a child or any hardship would most certainly relate to it. So here it is:
Be still, my soul! the Lord is on thy side; Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain; Leave to thy God to order and provide; In every change He faithful will remain. Be still, my soul! thy best, thy heavenly Friend through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.
Be still, my soul! thy God doth under take to guide the future as He has the past. Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake; All now mysterious shall be bright at last. Be still, my soul! the waves and winds still know, His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.
Be still, my soul! the hour is hastening on when we shall be forever with the Lord. When disappointment, grief, and fear are gone, sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored. Be still, my soul! when change and tears are past, all safe and blessed we shall meet at last.
I really liked what the lyrics are saying and it was so relate-able! I hope that maybe these lyrics might encourage and speak to someone else too!
Oh and by the way I have learned this past week how terrible I really am at math! More than I knew I was before! Ugh! Been doing the finances and figuring all our bills....so not fun:( Its funny the other day I could swear I could be an amazing cartoonist! As I was imagining our financial situation I could picture us being squeezed by a giant belt and popping out of our pockets were grocery receipts and bills, bills, bills! lol It hurts so much you just have to laugh, right?:)
However, I guess as the lyrics above state: "Leave to thy God to order and provide; In every change He faithful will remain.":)
