Faith… Do I have it?

“So let go my soul and trust in Him
The waves and wind still know His name”

It is well Take time to listen 🙂

April 10th… A day that now has significance in the life of my family.  This day last year we were getting ready to lay the body of my Granny to rest.  Not sure how my sisters and I made it through work last year on that Friday, other than through the strength God gave me.  Just like He has given us the strength to make it through other difficult things in the past 9 months.  I cannot imagine living life without the Hope, Joy, Peace, and Grace.

This morning in Church we were singing this version of “It is Well” and as I reflected on how God is constant in life through the death of my grandparents, Dad’s surgeries, and in daily life.  As I live through the stuff this world throws at me… He is there.  I just have to keep my eyes on Him as I meet it all head on…. Knowing, as His child He has my future in mind and the best plan for me.  And when I look away, as I seem to do often, He is there, ready to lift me up…. Just as He reached out His hand to Peter (See Matthew 14:22-33).

There are days I wonder if I have enough faith… even though it just takes the Faith of a mustard seed… I find myself trying to take hold of things in my life that I have already given to God to take control over.  ( Matthew 17:14-21).

My prayer this week is that I allow Him to work through me, even in difficult situations.  That I leave things in my life up to Him.  I mean… His plans are so much better than anything I can come up with, right?  I just need to get out of the way and let Him work (John 3:30).

It is well (full Lyrics)

Grander earth has quaked before
Moved by the sound of His voice
Seas that are shaken and stirred
Can be calmed and broken for my regard

Chorus
And through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
And through it all, through it all
It is well

And through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
It is well with me

Verse 2
Far be it from me to not believe
Even when my eyes can’t see

And this mountain that’s in front of me
Will be thrown into the midst of the sea

Chorus
Through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
Through it all, through it all
It is well
It is well

Bridge x3
So let go my soul and trust in Him
The waves and wind still know His name (repeat last line during 3rd run)

It is well with my soul
It is well with my soul
It is well with my soul
It is well with my soul
It is well it is well with my soul x3

Chorus x2 (softly slowly)
Through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
Through it all, through it all
It is well with me.
