I can’t even begin to describe how heavy my heart is right now, but in an unexplainable way, I know God’s good. You see, I don’t look at what’s in front of me. I don’t have all the answers. But I trust God, because that’s what a relationship is all about: trust. I trust that even though everything’s backwards, he’s in the midst of it all, working slowly to turn the rough edges of life into beauty itself.
I trust you, God.
I love the LORD because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath! Death wrapped its ropes around me; the terrors of the grave overtook me. I saw only trouble and sorrow. Then I called on the name of the LORD: “Please, LORD, save me!” How kind the LORD is! How good he is! So merciful, this God of ours! The LORD protects those of childlike faith; I was facing death, and he saved me. Let my soul be at rest again, for the LORD has been good to me. He has saved me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling. And so I walk in the LORD’s presence as I live here on earth! (Psalms 116:1-9 NLT)
