Chronic Back Pain, Faith, Health, Struggling

Waiting to see the tapestry…

Over the course of this past summer, this song here has become my common thread woven through each of my days…

Through the good ones and the ones that have been just shy of agony, this song…these words have become my anthem to my God.  See, I know…I KNOW…that He is able to heal me at any moment…at any time…Even before I get to the end of this sentence, if it were His will to, I could be healed.

So far that has not been the way, and it has not been His will just yet…

…but I know that there is a reason far greater than I can comprehend for that.

A friend once told me that God is creating a tapestry for each of our lives.  For the most part, all we are able to see is the view from behind, where all of the knots and ugliness shine their face, but on the other side…Oh, on the other side…is a beauty unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.  So while, yes, right now I am seeing a lot of the seemingly ugly…someday…whether here on this Earth or up in Heaven with my God…someday, I will get to see that beautiful tapestry that my Lord has woven and made of my life…

Until then, like the words of this song…

I know He’s able…I know He can…

but even if He doesn’t, my hope is in Him alone….

That will never change…

I will forever hang on…because even with the pain and the sorrow and the hurt, my life with the Lord has never been deeper or sweeter…and for that, I would go through all of this all over again.

It is for Him to heal my back and its pain or not…He certainly is able, but I will not question…I will only hope, and I will say that it is certainly well with my soul…

I hope you’ll take the time to watch this video…to listen to his words…It is a bit on the longer side, but his testimony and song bring hope and encouragement that I think each one of us could stand to have a little helping of.

Sharing at Grace & Truth!

I write about my life's core: Jesus & my faith, my family, and the struggles I have met along the way. I figure...I hope...that if exposing my life and it's lessons learned can encourage even one person, this blog and all the hours I have spent behind this computer will have been more than worth it.
