I heard this the other day and I thought I would share it with you all as not only does it cary the same name as this blog, but the lyrics are AMAZING and so, so true! I would also ask you to pray for an elderly friend of mine who is in hospital, that they might feel the truth of these words during such a trying time.
God never moves without purpose or plan
When trying His servant and molding a man.
Give thanks to the LORD though your testing seems long;
In darkness He giveth a song.
O Rejoice in the LORD
He makes no mistake,
He knoweth the end of each path that I take,
For when I am tried
I shall come forth as gold.
I could not see through the shadows ahead;
So I looked at the cross of my Savior instead.
I bowed to the will of the Master that day;
Then peace came and tears fled away.
Now I can see testing comes from above;
God strengthens His children and purges in love.
My Father knows best, and I trust in His care;
Through purging more fruit I will bear.
Regarding the blog series, I will only be posting for it every so often (Lord willing, varying from once a fortnight to once a month) and gradually building it up (with my own normal blog posts in between), so I apologise if I'm keeping anyone in suspense! :P But Lord willing and by His timing I will be posting those, so watch this space! :)
