Woke Up With This On My Mind…

Daddy and MeThere are some mornings when I wake up with a song in my head. Usually it’s a gospel song. This morning I woke up with one of my FAVORITE songs on my mind. The song is called “Sovereign God” sung by Maurette Brown Clark. The Lyrics go a little something like this:

There aren’t even words to describe just how great You are
In all Your majesty
You continually
Provide for me
There just isn’t anything that You can’t do
Lord I’ve seen Your work before
So I’ll trust you all the more
Because You are

You are the sovereign God
Bigger than all my problems
And every situation
There is nothing too hard
For the sovereign God

A wave of Your hand can command the seas to hold their peace
If you can handle the seas
Then I know that You can deal with all my needs
So I will put every situation
Into Your capable hands
I don’t have to know the plan
Because You are

You are the sovereign God
Bigger than all my problems
And every situation
There is nothing too hard
For the sovereign God

He is able to do exceedingly abundantly
Above all we ask or think
So take all your burdens and lay them at His feet
And watch Him meet the need
We have the victory
Because You are

You are the sovereign God
Bigger than all my problems
And every situation
There is nothing too hard
For the sovereign God

He is sovereign, He is
He is sovereign, He is
(repeat sequence 3 times, inverting each time up to one octave…)

You are the sovereign God
Bigger than all my problems
And every situation
There is nothing too hard
For the sovereign God

Whenever I hear this song, I just can’t hold back my tears because there is sooooooo much truth in this song for me. I’m crying NOT because I’m sad, but because my heart is bursting with joy…particular now.

If you read my previous blog (go ahead and read it if you haven’t), my Daddy was in the hospital for some complications. He’s 89 years old. My Daddy is no average 89 year old man and although nurses and doctors kept marvelling at how strong he was and couldn’t wrap their brain around how he was progressing so well and so quickly, I knew that it was my Sovereign God at work.

My Daddy was in the hospital since December 24, 2012. He was released into rehab about a week ago and TODAY he comes home! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!! So you see these are the reasons for my tears…tears of joy…this early in the morning. When I think about the lyrics to this song that I woke with on my mind…

There is nothing too hard for the Sovereign God. A wave of His hand can command the seas to hold their peace. If God can handle the seas, then I KNOW he can handle my needs. When I left to go to Atlanta knowing that my Daddy was in the hospital, I had to trust that the Sovereign God was gonna take care of Him. The funny thing is I thought Daddy would have been out by the time I came back. Ha! He was still in there. I have this really bad habit of thinking that I know what God’s next move will be. Ridiculous…right? When you put your trust in God, you have to put your trust in Him ALLL THE WAY…even when you don’t know what the next move will be. There’s a verse in the song that says, “So I will put every situation, Into Your capable hands, I don’t have to know the plan, Because You are”…that’s just it. When you say you’re gonna trust Him…that means “you don’t have to know the plan”…He is God after all.

When I came back from Atlanta and went to the hospital to see my Daddy…he looked worse than when I left him Christmas Eve. I broke down in a puddle of tears. After a reminder of who was ultimately in charge…I thought about that part of the song, “I don’t have to know the plan”. That’s when my “Beast Mode Faith” kicked in.

I’m so thankful to God for what He did for my Daddy. He has the blue print for his body, so who else could fix him. Through the doctors, nurses, respiratory specialists, physical therapists…God was in that room with him, showing him compassion, strengthening him, making the decisions, guiding the hands of the surgeons, taking care of him. He was there. He was there.

Everytime God does something amazing, He just adds more testimonies to the rolodex in my head that I can refer to whenever i forget to put my complete trust in Him. Oooooooh…I’m so overwhelmed with joy and gratefulness right now! There is NOTHING too hard for my Sovereign God. He is in control of EVERYTHING! He is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all we can ask or think!

MY DADDY COMES HOME TODAY!!! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

    I so needed to be reminded of this today. My daddy and mommy were both sick, and God saw fit to allow them to rest. However, the entire time that they were ill, I knew they were in His hands and all would be well. It isn’t always easy to do – just trust blindly – but it is possible, and no matter the outcome, we know that it is how it is supposed to be. I am so glad that your daddy is home – having him means more than you can even express I am sure! Be blessed lovie!
