God calls me to trust Him and lately I’ve been struggling to. #thestruggleisreal! But we sang this hymn at evening service tonight and the words have made my soul feel like this:
Beloveds, let us “be still and wait his pleasure.”
IF THOU BUT SUFFER GOD TO GUIDE THEE
If you but trust in God to guide you
and place your confidence in him,
you’ll find him always there beside you
to give you hope and strength within;
for those who trust God’s changeless love
build on the rock that will not move.
Only be still and wait his pleasure
in cheerful hope with heart content.
He fills your needs to fullest measure
with what discerning love has sent;
doubt not our inmost wants are known
to him who chose us for his own.
Sing, pray, and keep his ways unswerving,
offer your service faithfully,
and trust his word; though undeserving,
you’ll find his promise true to be.
God never will forsake in need
the soul that trusts in him indeed.
