The Banner of Trust Continued

Do I Trust You?
 Twila Paris

Sometimes my little heart can’t understand

What’s in Your will what’s in Your plan
So many times I’m tempted to ask You why
But I can never forget it for long
Lord what You do could not be wrong
So I believe You even when I must cry

Chorus:

Do I trust You Lord does the robin sing
Do I trust You Lord does it rain in Spring
You can see my heart You can read my mind
And You’ve got to know I would rather die
Than to lose my faith in the One I love

Do I trust You Lord

I know the answers I’ve given them all
But suddenly now I feel so small
Shaken down to the cavity in my soul
I know the doctrine and theology
But right now they don’t mean much to me
This time there’s only one thing I’ve got to know

Chorus 2:

Do I trust You Lord does the river flow
Do I trust You Lord does the North wind blow
You can see my heart You can read my mind
And You’ve got to know I would rather die
Than to lose my faith in the One I love

Do I trust You Lord

Chorus 3:

I will trust You Lord when I don’t know why
I will trust You Lord ’til the day I die
I will trust You Lord when I’m blind with pain
You were God before and You’ll never change

Do I trust You, do I trust You, do I trust You
I will trust You, I will trust You Lord

I will trust You Lord
 
 
I listened to Twila Paris and Amy Grant when I was in 8th grade through college and my early mommy-hood days! We go way back.
 
In the midst of my battles this week (which I now believe were a spiritual attack) this song came to my mind. I’ve signed it for women’s retreats and church programs, but it’s been a long time since I thought of it or heard it. The internet is great, because I would never had put my hands on my old cd which contains this treasure, but I found it this morning and knew this was what I felt I needed to say today.
 
It’s normal to battle in faith. We are living in a war zone, but Jesus has won the victory. I want to encourage you that if you’re struggling with trusting God today, you are not bad or alone. Our struggle is normal. But let God win! Surrender is the sweetest place to be.
 
The white flag of trust brings peace.
 
Jesus even asked His Papa, “Is there any other way to do this? Are you sure? Really…any other way?” God’s plan was painful, but it was glorious.
 
Bring it on!
 
Much love,
andy
