Thy Will Be Done

Matthew 26:42

…thy will be done.

If you haven’t heard it yet, go to YouTube and listen to Hillary Scott’s song, Thy Will Be Done. The message of her lyrics mimics Jesus just before He goes to the cross to take away the sins of the world. He struggles with the pain and suffering He soon will experience, but nevertheless, He accepts the will of the Father. 

Similarly, as circumstances of life overwhelm us, we are faced with difficult decisions and unanswerable questions. With each new tragic incident, I hear people exclaim, “why would God allow this to happen?” I cannot answer the whys.

What I do know is that God is real. God does hear our prayer. God is just. God loves you. God loves me.

Jesus says in Matthew 5:45, “…for He maketh the sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.” Life happens to us all. Sometimes it’s good, and sometimes it’s bad. We must choose to praise God through the victories and defeats. If we concede to allow His will to be fulfilled in our lives, then we are guaranteed a resurrection after each death experience. 

It’s not all rainbows and puppies serving the Lord. But, the benefits are out of this world. Trust Him today.

As a former mathematics teacher and pastor's wife, I encounter many people facing difficult problems in everyday life. I desire to inspire others to push on during times of difficulty. I am a mother of two grown children, and what I lack in personal experience, I have gleaned through the experiences of others. My goal is to encourage through my "Priddy" words.
