There are Times

There are times in my life
When my heart is embittered.
There are questions unanswered,
Yet, You’re drawing me
  To enter
Into Your blessed sanctuary
And turning my eyes heavenward,
The questions of constant inquiry
Are changed to these words,
Whom do I have in heaven
But You, dear Jehovah.
My flesh and my heart
Constantly fail,
  But God’s still
The strength of my heart and my portion;
To Him forever I’ll draw near.
I’ve made Jehovah my sweet refuge.
So now throughout the years
Turn my view to see You,
How I need to see Jesus!!
Though I don’t understand
The ways that You take;
  Lord, make me
A babe and suckling always praising.
Enjoying Your worth day by day.
Let each experience constitute me
So Your life I’ll display
In every way.

Yet You'really drawing me

To enter

Into Your blessed sanctuary

And turning my eyes heavenward,

I love You Lord and God!

In times of stress, tragedy, loneliness, loss of a loved one, depression and heart-aches that we experience in life brings us closer to HIM. I love the words of the song and sing and play the chords for the ukulele. His love is AMAZING.

This hymn was given to my husband and I yesterday after losing our baby boy at 5 months of pregnancy. The hymn has been with me as I've reflected on what beauty has come of a dire situation already. The Lord knows so many things that we don't see and He knows what we need for us to be drawn closer to Him. Of course I am sad that I've lost my first born but I am reminded and I've experienced that EVERY situation is an opportunity to turn to the Lord and grow in Him.

This song has brought me such hope in my current situation of trials. There are many questions unanswered but Lord, You are drawing me. I consecrate my life to You Lord Jesus.
