These are the words sitting in my heart today:

You are forever in my life,
You see me through the seasons.
Cover me with Your hands,
And lead me in Your righteousness,
And I'll look to you,
I'll wait on you.

I'll sing to you Lord,
A hymn of love,
For your faithfulness to me,
I'm carried in everlasting arms,
You'll never let me go,
Through it all.

This was a worship song that was played at my church this morning. I really identified with it, because I feel like I am in a season of waiting on the Lord. It is hard sometimes to sit back and be patient. It is hard to want something so badly and not be receiving it. I have been told time and time again that things happen in the Lord's time, not ours and I want to be a person who handles this waiting with grace.

As we were singing this morning, I started crying. This often happens when I am touched by some words in the song, and this one was especially a blessing to me. I pray that I can know His comfort in this time and that I can feel His arms around me. I can praise Him in my joy and in my sorrow. That I will be a light for someone else who is struggling. Thank you Lord, for your love, through it all.

Hi Sissy, I know what you mean about a song moving you to tears at church. That is the Holy Spirit...you cannot deny or ignore it...the tears just come whether you want them to or not. Sweet blessings are headed your way. Your obedience is so pleasing to Him. Don't forget that.

I am the same way about songs that touch my heart.

I know its earier said than done, but God does have a plan and He does have His reasons. Surrender to Him. He loves you and wants the best for you

Right there with you, Sissy...your post really resonates with my heart right now too. I start round 3 of Clomid tomorrow and this is month #18 for us. At the moment, I am battling desiring to hope & trust when my flesh pulls me to just give into hopelessness. There is such a delicate line between trusting and being okay and also being free to grieve- but both in the Lord. I pray that God will meet us both at this place and carry us on with the strength and faith that HE will give, not that we will muster up.
