... and learning how to trust

I've been enjoying listening to some of my older music lately. Last week while I was unpacking/cleaning, I was listening to the first CD I ever purchased - Out of the Grey's first CD. The lyrics to the song Write My Life struck a deep chord with me - they resonate much more deeply with me now than they did when I was fresh out of high school!

I try to write a rhyme
To reveal my feelings inside
I search with every word
To find the perfect line
But just like a little child
I hide behind a clever line
You take the pencil
I've been holding much too tight

And I'm watching
You write my life, Lord
I'm seeing Your hand in all I am
I'm watching You write my life
And learning how to trust

I struggle every day
To finish this my own way
Then try to scribble out
The pain of my mistakes
But You take my hand in time
And You paint a simple line
Erasing each mistake
The pages come alive

And I'm watching
You write my life, Lord
I'm seeing Your hand in all I am
I'm watching You write my life
As only You, only You can
Oh I'm watching
You write my life, Lord
And telling the story of Your love
I'm watching You write my life
And learning how to trust

Since He knows from the beginning to the end, we can trust that He will write it just as it pleases Him. It is much more pleasant when we allow Him to "take the pen".
I'd forgotten that song.
