When you obey the Will of God with love
Allowing Christ to live inside of you,
When you submit your life to God above
All things will work together good and true.
This doesn’t mean your wool will turn to silk
Or opposition tucks its tail and runs;
You will have sickness, still of mortal ilk,
Sometimes you’ll find your trials have just begun.
No matter what befalls your troubled life,
God’s spinning all your problems into gold.
He knows the purpose of your pain and strife;
He’s forming you into a sacred mould.
Your suffering is truly not in vain:
Just take the hand of Christ; He will sustain.
And we know that all things work together
for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28 KJV
