[will you still like Me?]

[will you still like Me?]

I woke up and the first thing on my mind was “God, can we please have good weather tomorrow?”

As I went about getting ready for work, mentally checking things that had to be done today in preparations, the weather was continually on my mind.

And then the tough question came to my mind…

“Are you going to like Me even if I don’t stop the rain tomorrow? Will you continue worshipping Me or will you simply say ‘He couldn’t do it’?”

And I stopped.

I stopped because I knew the right answer was “Of course, I will still be on Your side, God.”

But in my heart I was tempted to say, “Well, You could’ve changed the weather. I don’t like you anymore. You didn’t do what I’ve asked.”

… Because I KNOW He can change the weather! He did stop the storms, and healed people, and raised them from the dead. He’s almighty! What’s a couple of clouds for Him?

Yet I also know that He’s got a plan for everything. Quite honestly, it sucks to not know what is going to happen. I like to be prepared. But He is prepared. He has been prepared for July 2, 2011 for eternity.

*Sigh* I should go to sleep now. It’s going to be a LONG day tomorrow for the Chamber team. However, I really want to stick to “Thy will be done, not mine” motto.

That motto is tough to stick to when you really mean it.

  • There is a song we sing at church every now and then called "My God, My Father"…

    My God, my Father! while I stray
    Far from my home in lifeʼs rough way,
    Oh! teach me from my heart to say,
    Thy will be done!

    Though dark my path, and sad my lot,
    Let me “be still,” and murmur not,
    Or breathe the prayer divinely taught,
    Thy will be done!

    But if my fainting heart be blessed
    With the Holy Spirit for its guest,
    My God! to Thee I leave the rest–
    Thy will be done!

    If Thou should call me to resign
    What most I prize, never was mine;
    I only yield Thee what is Thine;
    Thy will be done!
    Thy will be done!

    Renew my will from day to day
    Blend it with Thine and take away
    All that now makes it hard to say
    Thy will be done!

    Then when on earth I breathe no more
    The prayer oft mixed with tears before,
    Iʼll sing upon that joyful shore,
    Thy will be done!

    It's a pretty sweet song and seemed appropriate.

  • Thanks for stopping by, Dustin 🙂
