Whatever my God ordains is right.

July 7, 2008

The weeks have flown by, it seems.

One of the songs that have become more precious lately — like a promise to cling to — is the old hymn, Whatever My God Ordains Is Right (Mark Altrogge’s updated version).

Some of my favorite lines from the hymn:
Whatever my God ordains is right
In His love I am abiding
I will be still in all He does
& follow where He is guiding . . .
I take it all unshrinking
My God is true . . .
I take content, what He has sent . . .
I am not forsaken
My Father’s care circles me there
He holds me that I shall not fall
& so to Him I leave it all.

I can sing this with a gloomy, downcast air of feeble resignation; or I can sing this with cheerfulness, with strength & joy & hope. God helping me, I will do the second.

Take heart — He is mightier than we have yet seen. We’ve only seen the edges of His ways. Take heart — His way is perfect.  He will work all things for our good & His glory; indeed, He is doing it now.

Tomorrow, I’ll post up some pictures. Glimpses of summer, so far :]
