Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

He will carry you

Sometimes life just isn’t fair.   Oh I know that all things work for our good and all.   I know that God is still God.   I know that He has it all under control.  Yet there are times my feelings get the better of me.

I try not to live by my feelings.  Feelings can be deceiving.  Feelings can lie.  Feelings blind us to the truth.  Today my guard was down.    It may have something to do with working 24 hours between Thursday and Friday.  Yes, 24 hours.   I am physically drained.  This is not the time to deal with emotional issues.

Yet that doesn’t seem to matter.  You see, as I type this, my sister is taking my mother to the ER.  I hate that I am here and not there.   I talked with my mom this morning and it nearly broke my heart.

Last fall I went through all the “why” questions.  I still have no answers.  Now the big question faces me again.  What am I suppose to do? An answer to that question would be nice.

God speaks to me through music.  There are a couple of songs that give  me renewed hope and bring calm to the storm.   So I have youtube going in the background.  I have been listening to ‘Trust His Heart” and “He will carry you.”  Both are filled with truth and hope.

TRUST HIS HEART

All things work for our good.  Though sometimes we can’t see how they could.   Struggles that break our hearts in two, sometimes blind us to the truth.  Our Father knows what’s best for us.  His ways are not our own.   So when your pathway goes dim and you just can’t see Him, remember you’re never alone.

God is too wise to be mistaken.  God is too good to be unkind.  So when you don’t understand, when you don’t see His plan, when you can’t trace His hand – Trust His heart.

He sees the master plan.  He holds the future in His hands.  So don’t live as those who have no hope.  All our hope is found in Him.  We see the present clearly but He sees the first and the last.  And like a tapestry, He’s weaving you and me to someday be just like Him.

God is too wise to be mistaken.  God is too good to be unkind.  So when you don’t understand, when you don’t see His plan, when you can’t trace His hand – Trust His heart.

“He will carry you”  is another one.

If He carried  the weight of the world up on His shoulders, I know my brother that He will carry you.  If  He carried the weight of the world up on His shoulders, I know my sister that He will carry you.

He said come unto me all who are weary and I will give you rest.

There is no problem too big – God cannot solve it.  There is no mountain too tall – He cannot move it.  There is no storm too dark – God cannot calm it.  There is no sorrow to deep – He cannot soothe it.

If He carried the weight of the world up on His shoulders, I know my brother that He will carry you.  If  He carried the weight of the world up on His shoulders, I know my sister that He will carry you.

So I leave my mother again in the hands of God.  Trusting that He will work all of this out for good.  As for my ‘feelings’ — when I can’t trace His hand I trust God’s heart.

til next time
