Four Powerful Words

“I don’t wanna think
I may never understand
That my broken heart is a part of your plan
When I try to pray
All I’ve got is hurt and these four words
Thy will be done…..
I know you’re good
But this don’t feel good right now
And I know you think
Of things I could never think about
It’s hard to count it all joy
Distracted by the noise
Just trying to make sense
Of all your promises
Sometimes I gotta stop
Remember that you’re God
And I am not
So, Thy will be done…”  Hillary Scott & The Scott Family

 I first heard the song Thy Will about a month ago. Instantly captivated by the beautiful melody and poignant words, I had no idea how God would use this song to begin to heal my soul. Every time I turn on the radio, this song is on. Every time I hit my favorite playlist on my phone, this song begins playing. It has become so obvious that even my nine year old has noticed and refers to the song as “Mama’s song.”
Thy will be done. Four short words. Four powerful words. Four words when spoken from a broken trusting heart can change everything.
Anytime we are able to say, regardless of the circumstances, “God I trust You,” it is like blow to satan. He wants to destroy, tear down and make us question God’s goodness and love. By uttering four simple words “Thy will be done” and asking God to help us mean them, we fight back against the destroyer.
I like to tell my kids that saying to God “Your will be done” and “I trust You” is like punching satan in the face……and it feels really good!
And so….here is my new fight song. My new anthem. My forever prayer……Thy Will.

About My Work

This blog serves as an online journal of sorts. It is where I go to process my thoughts and feelings. It is where I write about what it means to shine the light of Jesus in an ever darkening world. And it is where I record the beautiful glimpses of God’s extraordinary grace in the midst of my very ordinary life.
