God, You are now rearranging my way

God, You are now rearranging my way.
All I have built You’re destroying today.
Those serving faithfully daily decrease.
Dishonesty, misunderstandings increase.
  My eyes are teary; I can’t see You clearly,
As though all Your words aren’t as real as before.
You make me decrease, that You might thus increase,
To make Your will sweeter than e’er before.
For Your hand stopping I’d almost implore,
When I feel I cannot take any more.
Yet You are God! Oh, how can You give way?
Please, Lord, do not give in; wait ’till I obey.
If Your good pleasure and will should decree
That I must take suff’ring’s yoke upon me,
Then may my heart’s deepest joy be this thing—
Obeying Your will to take the suffering.
It seems the price that’s required for Your joy
Is that I’m hindered and knocked down by You;
Therefore I’d welcome Your hindering pull,
If thus I could cause Your heart to be joyful.
You’ve given chariots to others instead.
You have made them thus to ride o’er my head.
You stretch Your hand out my all now to take,
Yet please leave Your stripping hand here for my sake.

You’ve sovereignly given chariots to others instead, You have made them thus to ride over my head. You stretch Your hand out- my all now to take, but Lord, please leave Your stripping hand here for my sake.

We need to understand His purpose in rearranging what would be our way over and over and over again so He may gain us more deeply and in a continuous way. Hallelujah!

Oh Lord... You stretch Your hand out my all now to take,

Yet please leave Your stripping hand here for my sake.

Lord I love you. Thank you for Your will. Your stripping and consuming proves to me that I do love you because You first loved me.

Leave your stripping hand here for "our" sake, the product of the New Jerusalem. By your grace and mercy grant a soft, open, and turned heart to you Lord that I may remain under Your dispensing and transforming work all the day. Praise You for Your great love towards us!

Oh Lord, please wait until I obey. I cannot obey because of the wickedness of my flesh. Help me Lord. My eyes are teary I can't see You clearly💔💔💔💔


I fell in love with Him even more! Praise the Lord!


Praise the Lord, for You are sovereign in arranging everything for our need. You act on a hidden way, May You cause us to obey and hold on to Your presence, not to loose Your smilling face towards us, or I might be teary again, remembering Your love. , ❤️

God is the orchestra of our lives. Yes! There are disappointments, tears, and misunderstandings ; the Lord is omniscient (all knowing). Please, Lord help me to hold on until my changes come.

We should believe that everything that passes through God's hand is good. Our circumstances are arranged by God and are there for our benefit. Every environmental arrangement is for our benefit; it deals with the strong points in our natural life.

All the experiences we encounter are arranged by the Holy Spirit and are there to edify us. While we are passing through these disciplines and trials, we may not feel joyful or comfortable, but they are all part of God's work in us. Afterwards, we will realize that these experiences were all for our benefit. -eManna
