I wrote this song yesterday when life was hard. And I recorded it this morning when life got harder. I don’t claim to have cornered the market on Crappity Crap. So I’m not giving you this because I think my life is so much harder than everyone else’s. But I have found that the only way I can survive is to trust God’s goodness and thank Him repeatedly for His perfect plan that will eventually work good out of my current mess. I don’t need to share my whole mess with you – Heaven knows you have your own. But I wanted to share my Thanksgiving song.
A friend of mine just posted this quote on facebook. It is beautiful and perfect for me today. “Sometimes we make the foolish assumption that our heavenly Father has no right to insist that we trust him unless he makes his infinite wisdom completely understandable to us. What we call the problem of evil is often the problem of our finite and fallen understanding.” ~ R. Alcorn
My understanding is definitely finite. And I am viewing my problems and heartaches through the lens of my own sin and shortcomings. But God is viewing my whole life through the lenses of His perfect will and His goodness and His knowledge of the future. He is good. I trust Him.
(Don’t draw attention to your pathetic accompaniment, Anita. Don’t do it. GAH! I can’t leave the elephant unaddressed. Yes, my piano is out of tune and my “skills” are amateur at best. Plus I lost my place right near the end and that’s just too bad. Please try to disregard all that and simply be encouraged by the lyrics.)
