Light Shining Out Of Darkness by William Cowper

Light Shining Out Of Darkness

God moves in a mysterious way,
His wonders to perform;
He plants his footsteps in the sea,
And rides upon the storm.

Deep in unfathomable mines
Of never failing skill
He treasures up his bright designs,
And works his sovereign will.

Ye fearful saints fresh courage take,
The clouds ye so much dread
Are big with mercy, and shall break
In blessings on your head.

Judge not the LORD by feeble sense,
But trust him for his grace;
Behind a frowning providence,
He hides a smiling face.

His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flow'r.

Blind unbelief is sure to err,
And scan his work in vain;
GOD is his own interpreter,
And he will make it plain.
-- William Cowper

Again with the mysterious and non-concrete. I feel very lost and drifting right now -- like nothing in my life is under my control. I hope everything will be OK for moving into the Mobile home by the end of this month, but it all depends on people I don't know completing their paperwork efficiently. I hope we can get assistance for moving the furniture, but we can't ask for it till we know when we're moving, and we won't know till the paperwork is done. I hope I can get everything packed up safely -- but after working most of yesterday I was entirely wiped out. I napped for at least 6 hours on and off today. I didn't even do any lifting and carrying -- mostly, I was just putting things away so they'd all end up in the right boxes. I won't be able to do this on my own...I just have to trust that God knows what he's doing with our lives.
