Trust His Heart - sung by Newsong

Trust His Heart - sung by Newsong

All things work for our good
though sometimes we can't see how they could.
Struggles that break our hearts in two
sometimes blind us to the truth.
Our Father knows what's best for us;
His ways are not our own.
So, when your pathway grows dim,
and you just can’t see Him,
Remember He's still on the throne.

God is too wise to be mistaken.
God is too good to be unkind.
So when you don't understand,
when you don't see His plan,
When you can't trace His hand, trust His heart.

He sees the Master plan.
He holds the future in His hands.
So don't live as those who have no hope.
All our hope is found in Him.
We walk in present knowledge,
but He sees the first and the last.
And like a tapestry, He's weaving you and me
to someday be just like Him.

God is too wise to be mistaken.
God is too good to be unkind.
So when you don't understand,
when you don't see His plan,
When you can't trace His hand, trust His heart

This was an old song which I had on tape.... I bought it in Canada when I was doing my Grade 12 in Medicine Hat, Alberta. I had listened to this song many times when I could not see His hand in my life. It had been some time since I heard this song.

It has been many years since I left Medicine Hat, it has been about 20 years now. How time flies .... things change .... more responsiblities in life, diferent experiences, more distractions, many more things fighting for my attention, the loneliness ... that at times I forget that I can trust His heart. I still look at things which are tangible. I look for visible signs of God in my life .... but many times, it is not possible to feel Him or to see His hand in my life. Sometimes when life gets too routine, I tend to just live life in autopilot. The same old thing day in and day out makes it so easy to forget about Him. There was not much fellowship in KL to be reminded of God's goodness and power. I am amazed at how God always know who to pop into my life to remind me about Him. This time it was Yap who blogs at cpwaterman.blogspot.com, I stayed with him and his family when I was in Paris last weekend. It was great to hear him talking about God ... how God had been so faithful ..... It awakens the fire within me to be reminded that my God is alive and real. To see Him working in another person's life was a good reminder to me. Coz sometimes I feel that I walk around like a zombie in my shell .... I feel numb at times .... maybe it helps to numb the hurt ... it helps to stop feeling sometimes. And little did I know that the last weekend I spent in Paris was a place of awakening for me. Last Sunday before I left Paris, I sat in the Sacre-Coeur Basilica Cathedral and said a prayer to God which I used to say many years ago .. "God use me, may Your will alone be done in my life. Lead me in the path that You want me to take. Show me Your will for my life."

So when I don't see His hand working in my life, I will trust His heart. The Lover of my soul. Amen

So I want to share this song with you ... to not lose heart ... know that when you can't feel His hand, you can trust His heart.

Nice song with good lyrics :) , I bought it from Itunes store tonite. Thanks for sharing...It's very true, our dear Father always send someone / something to be close to us, to remind us that He's there for us :)..I brought my brother to GH for doc apt, at the same time also late for work, needed to rush for a prezo meeting, when I was about to make the 'wrong decision', He made everything so perfect for me, suddenly name was being called, jumped queue, it was so right timing that I got to see & chose the good doctor of my choice, prescribed with new medicine as well as arrived right back to work on time for my presentation. Praise God for all the little wonderful helps / cheers He is pouring onto me & my family ....wish the same goes to all my bro and sis in christ too :) ...
