Wednesday Worship: God Knows Best

So with everything within me,
I say, "Yes" to thee, O Lord
Even though my faith gets weak,
I'm standing on Your word.
So forgive me, Lord, for doubting You
When Your way I cannot see
Now I rest assured that You know what is best for me.

So let the faint of heart take courage,
Let the weak one say, "I'm strong."
God will exchange gloom for gladness
And your sadness for a song.
Do not cast away your confidence
God will always see you through
He knows just what to do and He knows what is best for you.

I've found great comfort in this song since I first heard it over 20 years ago.  Miller's voice, combined with the lyrics, provides a balm that soothes the deepest of wounds.  And now, when I'm not feeling particularly wounded but simply need a word of encouragement, the words are uplifting and remind me how great God art.

I pray that all the peoples of this earth--in the end, after the fighting, bickering, judging, doubting, denying, hurting, accusing, lying, mistrusting, torturing...after all the horrible things we do to one another--put their faith in God, realizing that He knows best for us all.

Does God know best for you?

Have a safe, happy, healthy, blessed Thanksgiving.

Peace & Blessings,
