Trusting and Rejoicing in Trials

Posted: October 28, 2012 in Uncategorized

Though the fig tree does not bud and there is no fruit on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will triumph in Yahweh; I will rejoice in the God of my salvation! Yahweh my Lord is my strength;
–from Habakkuk 3 HCSB

“Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings your glory
And I know there’ll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that’s what it takes to praise You
Jesus, bring the rain.” –Mercy Me
“It’s not that I don’t have an answer
It’s just not the one that I’d like
But through this time Lord I must keep in mind
You’re always wiser than IYou have a much better purpose
And You have a far greater plan
And You have a bigger perspective
Cause You hold this world in your hands” –Jonny Diaz “Waiting Room”
“Sometimes all we have to hold on to
Is what we know is true of who You are
So when the heartache hits like a hurricane
That could never change who You are
And we trust in who You are
Even if the healing doesn’t come
And life falls apart
And dreams are still undone
You are God You are good
Forever faithful One
Even if the healing
Even if the healing doesn’t come” –Kutless “Even If”
“When I cannot understand God’s leading,
When I do not know the reason why
He should choose the path that lies before me,
Still to Him in faith I can reply:I will trust when I cannot see,
When I’m faced with adversity,
And believe Your will is always best for me
I will trust when I cannot see.” –John W. Peterson
“Day after day our God is reigning
He’s never shaken, my hope is in the Lord
Time after time our God is faithful
Trustworthy Savior, my hope is in the Lord” –Kristian Stanfill
“I was sure by now
God You would have reached down
And wiped our tears away
Stepped in and saved the day
But once again, I say “Amen”, and it’s still rainingAs the thunder rolls
I barely hear Your whisper through the rain
“I’m with you”
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes awayAnd I’ll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I’ve cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm” –Casting Crowns “Praise You in the Storm”
“All I hear is what they’re selling me
That God is love, he isn’t suffering
And what you need’s a little faith and prosperity
But, oh my God, I know there’s more than this
If you promise pain it can’t be meaningless
So make me poor if that’s the price for freedomDon’t stop the madness
Don’t stop the chaos
Don’t stop the pain surrounding me
Don’t be afraid, love, to break my heart
If it brings me down to my knees” –Tenth Avenue North “Don’t Stop the Madness”
” I know that You can do anything and no plan of Yours can be thwarted.” –Job 42:2
