"Accustomed To His Hand"

In this time of struggles and so much wrong, the day so often seems not short but much too long.

You've told me my life overloaded I'll not touch but today I wonder just why you trust me so much.

The morning star shines most bright but as the sun rises it yields to it's light.

This day too I'll do the best I can and with each adversity, I'll grow accustomed to His hand.

I'll learn though many more hardships and failure I will know; it's by His grace that I might grow.

This day my life is rolled as the ocean's sand but I know He guides each wave; as I grow accustomed to His hand.

Written by Bob Wood

Psalms 55: 22 ... Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

Psalms 138: 7 ... Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.

Isaiah 43: 2 ... When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

There is a song that says, "I Did It My Way." What a terrible testimony, yet most of us do try to always do it our way. It has been said to tell when a Christian is growing is he begins to talk less of his works and more about the works of Christ and what He is doing in their life. It can be quite easy to lose sight of the fact that God is in control. So often it seems the more we try to direct our lives, the more we seem to lose control. Man is working for world peace which is a great goal, but we as Christians should also know there will not be a real peace on this earth. However, Christ offers peace in the midst of the storm. Today as you listen to the news of child abductions, pornography, suicide, wars, fires, mud slides, earthquakes, famines, politics and other events the news media feels compelled to report; remember God is in control and you know Him personally. Remember too as you see so much in this life unfair and often this happens to you, that these things often happen that we may learn to more depend on Him. Today let us work and pray to Do It His Way. May God Really Bless You! Keep shining and be as good as you can be and when you have a chance, you pray for me.
