God loves us more profoundly
Than we can understand,
So when a problem comes along
Reach out and take His hand.
Sometimes His love is hidden
In trials dark and gray,
If we could see behind the cloud,
This at His feet we'd lay.
For we would see His eyes of love,
Compassion on His face,
He always wants the best for us,
Through this His hand we'd trace.
We need not fully understand
Why this He has allowed,
We rest secure within His love,
He's just behind the cloud.
His purpose is not fully known,
We know this too is best,
And though we do not understand
Yet in His love we rest.
"Shall we accept (only) good at the hand of God and shall we not accept (also) misfortune and what is of a bad nature?" Job 2:10 (Amplified)
"Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience. But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be (people) perfectly and fully developed (with no defects), lacking in nothing." James 1:3-4 (Amplified)
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
