Sunday Devotional: “When The Morning Comes”

“1 Trials dark on ev’ry hand,
and we cannot understand
All the ways that God would lead us
to that blessed Promised Land;
But He’ll guide us with His eye,
and we’ll follow till we die;
We will understand it better by and by.

By and by, when the morning comes,
When the saints of God are gathered home,
We will tell the story how we’ve overcome;
We will understand it better by and by.

2 Oft our cherished plans have failed,
disappointments have prevailed,
And we’ve wandered in the darkness,
heavyhearted and alone;
But we’re trusting in the Lord,
and according to His Word,
We will understand it better by and by. [Chorus]

3 Temptations, hidden snares
often take us unawares.
And our hearts are made to bleed
for some thoughtless word or deed.
And we wonder why the test
when we try to do our best,
We will understand it better by and by. [Chorus]” (“When The Morning Comes”)

As I was thinking about what to share for this devotional, the last of 2015, I thought about this hymn.  I sung it in church this morning.  Given the last couple of years and the struggles I’ve went through I was reminded of the words of this song.  Anytime we go through loss and pain, we struggle with why we go through these events.  And sometimes we don’t understand why we go through it.  But the good thing is that we serve and follow the one who has all the answers.  The one who knows what we’re going through.  The one who loves us and cares for us, Jesus.

So whether this year has been a great year or whether it has been a tough year, remember that God is faithful and He loves you and someday we will understand why we have went through those tough times.
