Tonight in church we sang this song, and it was something I needed to hear.
Rejoice in the Lord by Ron Hamilton
God never moves without purpose or plan
When trying His servent and molding a man.
Give thanks to the LORD though your testing seems long;
In darkness He giveth a song.
I could not see through the shadow ahead;
So I looked at the cross of my Savior instead.
I bowed to the will of the Master that day;
Then peace came and tears fled away.
Now I can see testing comes from above;
God strengthens His children and purges in love.
My Father knows best, and I trust in His care;
Through purging more fruit I will bear.
O Rejoice in the LORD
He makes no mistakes,
He knoweth the end of each path that I take,
For when I am tried
I shall come forth as gold.
