He knoweth the way that I take....

I soon hope to post a bit of the last week for you, but until then I want to give you this at least. Having been gone almost a whole week on and off, plus the emotional and physical strain of the funeral and it's preparation has been draining to say the least. However, as usual, God has taught me much through it, and some of it is expressed in this poem/song. Though much of the recent events we don't understand, we can trust the heart of our Father and His perfect love for each one of His children.

When God says "No" to you, it's such a blow to you
And all your hopes and dreams unravel at the seams;
When God says "Wait" to you, when God seems late to you
It's hard to rest within His will, it's hard to trust "Just be still"
It's hard to simply wait until it's all made plain

When God works silently, in ways we cannot see
And troubles multiply so that we ache and sigh.
When God does not seem kind, when hope is hard to find
It's hard to rest within His will, it's hard to trust "Just be still"
It's hard to simply wait until it's all made plain

He who holds us in His hands, has no problems only plans
He who has control of all sees the smallest sparrow fall
He who works where no one knows, does not sleep as we suppose
But works in all things, in great and small things
For His own glory and our best good.
