...on whatever befall
I don't know what it is, but it seems like as I get older, I am coming into contact with more and more people who have experienced or are experiencing such great loss. A little over a year ago I remember being in church and singing Be Thou my Vision. I had just recently learned of a friend who was suffering a devastating loss. As we sang this song I almost began to cry (something I do not do often) when I reflected on these lyrics "heart of my own heart, whatever befall, still be my vision, O ruler of all". Specifically the words "whatever befall". Not really sure where I'm going with this but I just felt like sharing. I guess it just made me reflect and think whether or not I would be willing to trust in God "whatever befall". I would like to think so. I hope this isn't a downer for your friday-maybe just a little perspective? I'll leave you with the song "Be Thou my Vision". An oldie but a goodie!
