Trust In You by Lauren Daigle
Another song is lingering on my heart this week that I really feel lead to share. This one speaks deeply to me, and I realize that what I want and wish for in my life is not what God may want for my life. I sometimes feel I am drowning. Life is both good and conflicting all at the same time. I try to stop and listen to God but I am unsure what He is saying to me these days. Each day is a different message, but I know somewhere in there is my own confusion, distracting me from God’s will.
Letting go of every single dream
I lay each one down at Your feet
Every moment of my wondering
Never changes what You see
I’ve tried to win this war I confess
My hands are weary I need Your rest
Mighty Warrior King of the fight
No matter what I face You’re by my side
Then I heard this song. The words speak to me as we enter this holiday season and the end of another year. I know that I must lay my life and dreams at His feet. I am weary from life and I need Him by my side as I continue the fight! I am David before Goliath. May my faith in God be strong as I use God’s strength to push forward. “Then David said to the Philistine, You come to me with a sword and with a spear and with a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel…” 1 Samuel 17:45.
Truth is You know what tomorrow brings
There’s not a day ahead You have not seen
So in all things be my life and breath
I want what You want Lord and nothing less
I rest in the arms of the Lord and the knowledge that he has counted my days before my days even existed. “Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.” Psalm 139: 16. I place my trust in him that I can conquer all that he has planned and that his dreams become mine and I will walk in his grace and strength just as Ephesians 6:10 promises, “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.”
When You don’t move the mountains
I’m needing You to move
When You don’t part the waters
I wish I could walk through
When You don’t give the answers
As I cry out to You
I will trust, I will trust
I will trust in You
I will trust in You
I sing these words and I know that I must trust as Jeremiah 17:7 reads, ““Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.” I will find my blessings by walking and trusting in the Lord. The God I know can move mountains from Matthew 17:20, “He said to them, Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” He may choose not to move the mountain or part the sea I want moved or parted. This realization is sometimes hard to understand but walking his path I know I will find His blessings.
You are my strength and comfort
You are my steady hand
You are my firm foundation
The Rock on which I stand
Your ways are always higher
Your plans are always good
There’s not a place where I’ll go
You’ve not already stood
On this Thanksgiving morning as I write and realize how thankful I am for all that God has provided and blessed my life with – may I remember that He is my Rock. Psalms 95:1 says, “Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!” May I remember to sing and rejoice in this song that God is my Rock each and everyday. I find my strength from my Rock and “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”, Philippians 4:13.
Closing Verse: “The Lord is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him.” Exodus 15:2
Challenge: During this holiday season may we find our path and strength from our Rock and sing a song of praise for all God has done.
