And he said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.”-Job 1:21
Hello, friends! Another day, another song. 🙂
This is one that has always spoken to me.
The thoughts contained within it, inspired by the verse above, have long resonated deep in my heart.
I can recall singing it in both times of greatest joy and heaviest sorrow. And He has always met me in the midst and provided His incomparable comfort.
I don’t know why it took me so long, but it occurred to me yesterday as the youth group unexpectedly chose to sing this steady go-to of mine that it speaks incredibly well to this time of significant unrest in our nation.
For, whatever questions may rise, whatever uncertainty we are facing, whatever we see come and go, He always, always knows best.
And His name-that precious name of the Lord-always remains blessed, come what may.
Resting our trust in this fact can be a challenge as we look at the strife in our world-believe me, how my anxious heart struggles!
Yet, I know this ability to trust is a very necessary component to holding on to our peace and joy. So, daily I am praying He would increase my trust in Him and His sovereignity.
So…may we listen to the following, choose to add our voices to the chorus of praise, and be reminded of this powerful truth.
