Trusting God when we can’t see…

April 7, 2008

I’m going to do a series of posts about how God uses trials in our lives… This post is sort of a “sneak peak” into the subject…

Ginny Owens is blind, a succesful Christian musician, and a beautiful example of trusting God in all of life and prizing Jesus above all else… Read the lyrics to her song “Wonderful Wonder” below:  

Wonderful Wonder

I don’t know the ocean’s crystal blue,
and I don’t climb the mountains for the view.
Or wish upon the stars above my head,
or bear witness to a marvelous sunset

But the very thought of things I’ve never seen,
Is all it takes to bring me to my knees.

(chorus)
Oh what a wonderful wonder,
A display of great beauty and power
Oh what a wonderful wonder
You are to me

I wish that I could see life through your eyes.
To gaze upon the canvas from your side
To understand all that you’ve done before
And to realize the plans you have in store.

And when I long to know what I don’t see
You give me the courage to believe.

(chorus)
Oh what a wonderful wonder,
A display of great beauty and power
Oh what a wonderful wonder
You are to me

I can hardly wait until the time
when you will turn my darkness into light.
and I’ll finally find my way to heaven’s door
where I won’t need my faith anymore.

And when my eyes behold your majesty
I’ll join with the angels and we’ll sing

(chorus)
Oh what a wonderful wonder,
A display of great beauty and power
Oh what a wonderful wonder
You are to me

Beautiful, isn’t it? It’s brought tears of joy to my eyes several times before…

I’m thankful that we have a wise, loving, powerful God, whose plan we can trust, even when we can’t see exactly what He’s doing… And I’m thankful He’s the awesome, satisfying God He is…

May we all see life as clearly as Ginny does!
