I have had a day full of emotions that have been up and down. I am exhausted, emotionally. Sanj was playing me some songs that he redid from his 25th alumni reunion, Eternal Praise. As I listened, a song that really moved me was “In His Time.” It was one that I clung to going through some rough times in my 20s. My faith was so SIMPLE. I miss that. I hate the constant doubt of “Are You There, God, It’s Me, Reema…”
I am going to try and put the music on here… but here are the words:
In His time, in His time
He makes all things beautiful in His time
Lord, please show me every day as You’re teaching me Your way
that You do just what You say in Your time
In Your time, in Your time
You make all things beautiful in Your time
Lord, my life to You I bring may each song I have to sing
be to You a lovely thing in Your time
As I was talking to Sanj, he said… it’s an easier thing to sing than live. Now almost 40, I want that again.
Faith. I want to be a woman of faith. Lord, Help me Believe again and KNOW in my core that You are IN COMPLETE control.
I know I just need that mustard seed. You will make it grow. If I look back, I see all the things You DID make beautiful and it was in YOUR time.
I want that Peace that passeth all understanding. I need it. I didn’t understand those words as a kid… now I sing that song craving that peace beyond all understanding. All my friends out there, I pray this for you tonight too.
