Recently I shared a post with a message I gave to my church. (Click here to view that message) At the end of that message I asked one simple question. It was this: Will you trust God with your pain?
That is a simple question, but yet it is so difficult to answer. Will I trust God with my pain? I have to first answer other questions, like; is God good? Is God in control? Does God care about me? These are the questions that plague us and leave us feeling weary and worn out.
When we walk into the doctors office to hear the test results, or when we click our pen to sign the divorce papers, or when we feel anxious over every one of life’s details, we ultimately have a decision to make… and that is, will you trust God? Can you say that it is well?
Sometimes it is easier than others… At least that has been my experience. But at the same time, I also know that there is nothing I would rather do than place my life and my hurts, pains, doubts, and frustrations into the hands of a God who not only knows what it is like, but holds it all together.
When I am in the moments of pain and deep suffering I have to turn to scripture. Over the past few months the soundtrack to my pain has often been this song-It Is Well by Bethel . I love these words…
Through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
It is well with me
So, what about you? Can you say, It Is Well?
