You Are God Alone

You are not a God
Created by human hands
You are not a God
Dependent on any mortal man
You are not a God
In need of anything we can give
By Your plan, that's just the way it is

You are God alone
From before time began
You were on Your throne
You are God alone
And right now
In the good times and bad
You are on Your throne
You are God alone

You're the only God
Whose power none can contend
You're the only God
Whose name and praise will never end
You're the only God
Who's worthy of everything we can give
You are God
And that's just the way it is


That's what You are

I desperately needed to be reminded of the truth. The truth that God, indeed, is on His throne.
Because this is what the bad days look like:

These last few days have been excruciatingly painful. I have, honestly, wanted to die because the pain is so unbearable. I just want to be with my precious son. I want him back. So many people think I'm so strong, yet I feel like I am falling apart. I am overwhelmed and have absolutely no motivation to do the daily "stuff" of life. I can't do this without God. And I'm not even so sure I can with Him. It just seems that in a matter of months, my life has gone spinning out of control. Absolutely nothing is the same any more and everything has changed and continues to change. Relationships I once thought were secure are not. Places I once loved being at, like church, I now hate. I feel like I'm groping my way around in the dark in vain.

But thanks be to God for His truth! I may not know where I am going, but God does. He is leading me, as He did Abram. Abram did not know where he was going, but he knew who he was following. Abram trusted and obeyed, and I am asked to do the same. The amazing thing, too, is that the strength it requires of me is provided by God as well. Oh, how I long for the day when I can say with full confidence that God did work Matt's death for good in my life. For now, I will trust in His Word because He has been good to me. (Matt. 4:4, Ps. 13:2,6)
