Thank You for today, no matter
what the weather will be. You
have given me the gift of today.
You designed me fearfully and wonderfully
in Your own image, though
I am scarred by sins, both my own
and others’. But You healed me and
made my body a temple, that
I may live for You today and
every day. And I am complete
through You, free through You.
Yes, the bad can happen, and I
will stand strong in You,
my foundation of rock. When the
winds whip at my back, I will
not be swayed, for my foundation
is truth and my armor is heavy.
Yes, the burden of carrying Your armor
through this world, a soldier for You,
is daunting, but You lighten all burdens.
When the rains pour, I will seek
shelter in You. In sun, I will grow
Your fruits, a branch of Your vine.
At times, I do wonder why
You allow me to suffer so.
Why did You give my love over
to a reprobate mind, hungry for
his own desires and not Yours?
Why did You give life to his child
through a woman selfish and prideful and
not me? I thought he was Your
gift to me, only me. But now,
those promises he made are voided
by his responsibility to the child You made.
And he still loves me, but now he
is not himself, but a man with a child
with another woman. And I cannot see
whether You would have me stay
or go. You say You will give peace,
but I cannot have peace not knowing.
You say You will light my way, but
my heart is so heavy and my eyes
see only darkness. I try
to trust You, knowing You can work
anything out to good for those
who follow You, though I cannot see
how this will ever end in good.
Oh God, I know You will
surprise me over time.
I cannot fathom Your greatness,
so You will heal me and use
this all for Your glory. I burn
to watch Your plans unfold.
Please, if I only knew my part
in this, I would play it for you,
to tears. But how can I act when I
cannot see the script?
Show me what to do, so that I may
pick up the pieces and continue
walking. I know that patience
is a virtue, so today I wait no matter
what the weather will be.
If this message blessed you, be a blessing by sharing with others.
