Sometimes the weight is too heavy, sometimes the road, too long.
Sometimes the waves are too rough, sometimes the storm, too strong.
Sometimes the burden is massive, sometimes things go wrong.
Sometimes the way is unsure, sometimes you just don’t belong.
Sometimes the view is unclear, sometimes just riding along.
But the Lord resides in the Heavens, and He watches those on Earth.
He rules over every second, even from years before any birth.
He delights in the pure and the righteous, rewards according to their worth.
Placed exactly where He wants you, secured and established at your berth.
You will rejoice forevermore in Glory, jubilation, pleasures, and mirth.
Wait upon the Lord, lift up our eyes to the One who cares, lift up your head and look to the Savior who loves you, and to the One who rules over all. Fix your gaze upon Jesus, and not on any of the wild, crazy, and difficult situations and events that swirl around you. He is the way, the truth, and the life, and nothing has happened by mistake.
The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein, for He has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers. Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in His holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false and does not swear deceitfully. He will receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation. Such is the generation of those who seek Him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob. Psalm 24:1-6
It is by Him and through Him that you are given all things. He is above looking down on all mankind from the beginning to the end. He knows the best way, He knows the right path, even when you can not see it or when you don’t understand. His works are flawless, timing perfect, His plan ultimate, and His word absolute.
Thus says the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and the one who formed him: “Ask me of things to come; will you command me concerning my children and the work of my hands? I made the earth and created man on it; it was my hands that stretched out the heavens, and I commanded all their host. I have stirred him up in righteousness, and I will make all his ways level; he shall build my city and set my exiles free, not for price or reward,” says the Lord of hosts. Isaiah 45:11-13
His Ultimate Plan
So as you move forward in faith and in the Lord you seek,
Keep your eyes firmly fixed, up to His mountain peak.
Even when the storms of dread and uncertainty batter against,
Lean on the Savior, His reassurance will be dispensed.
Don’t focus on fear, but remove all worry and doubt,
Keep your faith strong and secure, His plan will work out.
Believe and trust in Him, He has everything in hand,
His path is straight, His purpose and the ultimate plan.
Be patient and trust Him, in every moment of every day,
He is dependable, worthy, and will show you the way.
1 To you I lift up my eyes, O you who are enthroned in the heavens! 2 Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maidservant to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the Lord our God, till He has mercy upon us. 3 Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us, for we have had more than enough of contempt. 4 Our soul has had more than enough of the scorn of those who are at ease, of the contempt of the proud.
