Last night, the blues hit with a wham as I made my way to the car to drive home from work in the dark. Just like I did on my way in to work 8 hours earlier.
So I did what works for me when depression tries to become my only thought. I fight back with truth.
The verse “All things work together for my good” (Romans 8:28) came to mind, as did a new song I only heard a snippet of last week. By the time I made it home, I had the song memorized and was a little hoarse from all the car singing at the top of my lungs. (Don’t knock it til you try it!)
It occurred to me that this song might encourage those of you who are feeling blue, lonely, or anxious in that inbetween place of waiting for the next step. That the good is up ahead, even if we can’t see it yet.
🎤FOR THE GOOD🎶
“Who can bend my burdens and make them beautiful? Who can bring the healing to the hurt I hold? Who else could part the waters when I’m needing a way? Though I’m walking through the valley, I’ll believe when You say – I’ll believe when You say…
🙌For the good, for the good, You work all things together. For the good, for the good, Your promise stands forever. You alone are my greatest hope, I trust You on the broken road. You work all things together like only You could – for the good.🙌
Lord, Your ways are higher, You know Your plans for me. You give purpose and a future even when I can’t see. So I will pray through every heartache, I will cling to this faith. Though I’m walking through the valley, I’ll believe when You say –
I’ll believe when You say….
