Do I Trust You? - A Texture Tuesday

A Texture Tuesday...a peaceful scene to soothe my broken heart.  Took this photo on vacation during a photowalk through Thomas, West Virginia.  Used Kim's aurora texture...


Sometimes we are blinded by tears and heartache...and all you can do is trust.  My severely disabled son, Caleb, is having a very rough time and so am I with the system.  So...I must remember these words and sing them back to the Lord.

Sometimes my little heart can't understand
What's in Your will, what's in Your plan.
So many times I'm tempted to ask You why,
But I can never forget it for long.
Lord, what You do could not be wrong.
So I believe You, even when I must cry.

Do I trust You, Lord?
Does the river flow?
Do I trust You, Lord?
Does the north wind blow?
You can see my heart,
You can read my mind,
And You got to know
That I would rather die
Than to lose my faith
In the One I love.
Do I trust You, Lord?
Do I trust You?

I know the answers, I've given them all.
But suddenly now, I feel so small.
Shaken down to the cavity in my soul.
I know the doctrine and theology,
But right now they don't mean much to me.
This time there's only one thing I've got to know.
Do I trust You, Lord?
Does the robin sing?
Do I trust You, Lord?
Does it rain in spring?
You can see my heart,
You can read my mind,
And You got to know
That I would rather die
Than to lose my faith
In the One I love.
Do I trust You, Lord?
Do I trust You?

I will trust You, Lord, when I don't know why.

I will trust You, Lord, till the day I die.
I will trust You, Lord, when I'm blind with pain!
You were God before, and You'll never change.
I will trust You.
I will trust You.
I will trust You, Lord.

  8. Bless your Caleb. And bless you too. I have sung this song in my heart often (even though this is the first time I've ever seen this actual song)...to be powerless on behalf of your child is a cruel fate. Prayers continuing.

    Why must it be so?

    xoxo
