When it is all beyond us
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. –Catharina von Schlegel
Lord, like Job when his heart was heavy with grief, he gave thanks to You and worshipped. In the depths of our hearts we worship and adore You. May your name be glorified and exalted. You are indeed above every one of life’s circumstance and your omnipotence and sovereignty are never lost on us each day. Descend O gracious Lord and continue to receive your praise. Your goodness can and will never be questioned O Lord Most High.
Lord there are many who have hit rock bottom. Everything they have tried in terms of solving pertinent problems in health and in other aspects of life all seem to fail and, hope also seem to be fading fast. May they realize in such moments that when it’s all beyond us you are still in control. Amen. ( 3/19/17)
