In His Time

In His Time ~~~Written by Linda Hogeland~~~November 2010

In His time we’ll understand the things we don’t know now
Why some people suffer pain with frowns upon their brow

Why some people leave this earth while other people stay
Why no matter how we try we always go astray

Why it is that evil wins and lurks around each door?
Is it a fact that sin prevails and throws us to the floor?

If we fight back in our own strength I doubt that we can win
But in His time we’ll understand… if we cling to Him

In this life it’s not for us to know the reasons why
We live by faith and trust His grace to daily get us by

We simply trust in God’s own word and all He has to say
And take the steps one by one as Jesus lights our way

We may not see the pathways end, or what He holds in store
But in His time He will reveal the ballad’s wondrous score

The play it has been written… the story has a theme
And we wait until the ending to realize the dream

Our eyes are set on heaven where we will meet the King
And among the band of angels His anthems we will sing

Praise and adoration spring forth from grateful hearts
And maybe then will be the time when the questions start

But I think we’ll be so happy to stand before our Lord
That these questions might not matter when we walk in one accord

He may let us see the tapestry from the finished side
Where here on earth we only saw the knots and tangled pride

It’s a wonder He could work with us and make us fit for Him
But He did in fact purchase us and wash away our sin

So when we wonder here on earth why things happen as they do
Let us keep our eyes on Him and He will bring us through

In His time all knees will bow and we’ll see Him face to face
And then perhaps we’ll understand the vastness of His grace!
