I was having one of my quiet moments when a phrase suddenly came to my mind, “when you can’t trace His hand, trust His heart”.
I heard it being repeated in my head and I began to contemplate the words. I knew that it was referring to God and His infinite wisdom and care.
I had heard the phrase sometime ago though I can’t remember where and from whom. Today however it came back to me and it was such an on time reminder.
After thinking about the phrase for a while and how it related to my personal situation I felt led to share it with others, but before doing so I decided to do a search online to see where the line came from so I could reference the author if necessary.
That search led me to the lyrics of a song by Babbie Mason, ‘Trust His Heart.’
I read the lyrics and then listened to the song and I could relate to every line. It reminded me in such an intimate way that I could trust God no matter what was happening, no matter what I was going through and no matter how much I lacked understanding.
It reminded me that we can truly trust the heart of God when we are going through our moments of uncertainty. When the wheels of life begin to turn and we do not know what will happen next. When things start to spin and seem as if they are about to spiral out of control, we can trust one thing, the heart of God.
No matter what happens and no matter how the pieces fall and how the puzzle fits together, we can trust that God has our best interest at heart. We can trust His love to never fail or run out. Not ever!
I want to leave an excerpt of the song with you and I pray that it will minister to you in a special way. If you are not able to take anything from it, at least take and always remember this one line – ‘When you can’t trace [God’s] hand, trust His heart.’
“All things work for our good
Though sometimes we can’t see how they could
Struggles that break our hearts in two
Sometimes blind us to the truth
Our Father knows what’s best for us
His ways are not our own
So when your pathway grows dim
And you just can’t see Him,
Remember you’re never alone
God is too wise to be mistaken
God is too good to be unkind
So when you don’t understand
When don’t see His plan
When you can’t trace His hand
Trust His Heart…”
