When life events seem confusing and beat down on us, we might cry out, Lord, make it right.
When we aren’t sure which is the best path to take, we might cry out, Lord, make it plain.
When things seem a little muddled and fuzzy, we might cry out, Lord, make what is so clear to you, clear to me.
Whenever we cry, Lord, make it right, we can be assured God is aware of what we’re going through. Sometimes we see his hand move as he works on our behalf. Other times we don’t. Whether or not we see God at work, it doesn’t change the fact he is working.
When we believe God is good, God is in control, God will never leave or forsake us, and trust in his sovereignty, we are better able to lay our needs at his feet while we wait for him to work in his way and in his timing.
This may not be an easy thing to do, but the more we do it, the easier it becomes.
How have you seen that to be true in your life?
“Being perplexed, I say,
‘Lord, make it right!
Night is as day to Thee,
Darkness as light.
I am afraid to touch
Things that involve so much;
My trembling hand may shake,
My skilless hand may break;
Thine can make no mistake.’
“Being in doubt I say,
‘Lord, make it plain;
Which is the true, safe way?
Which would be gain?
I am not wise to know,
Nor sure of foot to go;
What is so clear to Thee,
Lord, make it clear to me!’”

O our God, won’t you stop them? We have no way to protect ourselves against this mighty army. We don’t know what to do, but we are looking to you.

Sandy, I appreciate the truth shared in your post and the way you chose to share it. The “Streams and the Desert” quote hemmed it in perfectly. Thank you!
Thanks so much, Cathy. Appreciate you stopping by and commenting.
An encouraging message, Sandy, for when we’re waiting and not sure of the future.
Thank you, Kathy. I find I need to remember whether I see God’s hand at work or not, he’s still working.
Indeed He is, and I pray to be aware of His hand in each part of my day
