In His Hands

It's been a difficult weekend for us. I keep singing All Is Well With My Soul over and over, reminding myself that yes, God is in control. Our heartaches are no surprise to Him. He will equip us in decision making, He is with us in our need and sorrow.  

These things are always too heavy for me and the only way for me to function is to turn around and put it back in God's hands. Give us wisdom. Give us courage, Lord Jesus. I've been playing this in our hospital room today, singing nose to nose with Calvin. He opens his mouth and sings "aaaaaahhh" with a smile.  He looks at me so trustingly, so happy and seems to say, yes momma, all is well. Let's sing it again, little one. 

He lowers us to raise us
So we can sing His praises
Whatever is His way all is well
He makes us rich and poor
That we might trust Him more
Whatever is His way all is well

All my changes come from Him He who never changes
I'm held firm in the grasp of the Rock of all the ages

All is well with my soul
He is God in control
I know not all His plans
But I know I'm in His hands

He clothes us now then strips us
Yet with His Word equips us
Whatever is His way all is well
And though our seasons change
We still exalt His name
Whatever is His way all is well

I've never heard that song or that artist - it was wonderful!
Thinking of you all tonight and praying that all is indeed well.

Thanks for sharing this. Robin Mark has written some great music, and this is just beautiful. It reminds me of the old hymn, "It is well with my soul", but these words are almost better. I'm going to have to try and find this for church. I love it.

Meanwhile I hope things are going better and that both you and Calvin have been able to get some rest. Thinking of you often. Love you heaps!
