Asking God to hold your heart



You know, when I first heard the lyrics to this song "Hold My Heart" by Tenth Avenue North, I was a bit offended. 

"How DARE they talk to God like THAT?" I thought in self-righteous indignation. 

But THEN I got older and LIFE HAPPENED and after hearing this song again today, I realize that I have talked to God like that! I have been guilty of questioning him along the blatant lines of "God WHAT are you DOING?" when I just don't understand. 

Oh but don't you know, God's Word (The Holy Bible) says that God's ways are NOT our ways! Isaiah 55:9 tells us about God's mind and methods when it says (written like God is speaking): “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." 

So today was one of those days when I was filled with questions for God. But then tonight as I listened to this song, I realize that God hears me, He's right here with me and He will hold my heart and I choose to trust Him even when I do not understand.
