When I Don't Understand
/

Oh Lord, My God, in You I put my trust. Many years ago, in a time of illness, sorrow threatened to swallow my heart of confidence in God. With my pen in hand and oxygen tank at my side, one day I made a choice. I wrote a song about the faithfulness of God even when I didn’t understand. It was eventually recorded as part of a collection on a CD called “Quiet Times.”

Sometime later, a letter came to me from someone who testified that that particular song stopped her in her tracks as she was on her way to commit suicide. It led her back to her childhood faith in Christ. The point is this even when we don’t understand, the purpose of God is still unfolding in each of our lives.

It’s time to pray.

    Thank you Pastor Conlon and TSC for sharing this. This is right where I was this morning. I am encouraged that what I have gone through + am going through will be used by the Lord. Blessings

    God bless you and I thank you for these encouraging words. Many of God's people seem to be going through difficult and hard to understand times. But He is faithful and His lovingkindness is better than life. He is the potter and we are the clay. I believe He is preparing us for what lies ahead as we have to make our roots go deeper into His living word and rivers of His life.
