Need Encouragement?

(Prepare to be encouraged…)

Lay your head down tonight
Take a rest from the fight
Don’t try to figure it out
Just listen to what I’m whispering to your heart
‘Cause I know this is not
Anything like you thought
The story of your life was gonna be
And it feels like the end has started closing in on you
But it’s just not true
There’s so much of the story that’s still yet to unfoldAnd this is going to be a glorious unfolding
Just you wait and see and you will be amazed
You’ve just got to believe the story is so far from over
So hold on to every promise God has made to us
And watch this glorious unfoldingGod’s plan from the start
For this world and your heart
Has been to show His glory and His grace
Forever revealing the depth and the beauty of
His unfailing Love
And the story has only begunAnd this is going to be a glorious unfolding
Just you wait and see and you will be amazed
We’ve just got to believe the story is so far from over
So hold on to every promise God has made to us
And watch this glorious unfoldingWe were made to run through fields of forever
Singing songs to our Savior and King
So let us remember this life we’re living
Is just the beginning of the beginningOf this glorious unfolding
We will watch and see and we will be amazed
If we just keep on believing the story is so far from over
And hold on to every promise God has made to us
We’ll see the glorious unfoldingJust watch and see (unfolding)
This is just the beginning of the beginning (unfolding)

 
“The Glorious Unfolding” by Stephen Curtis Chapman
 

If you read or listened to the lyrics of this song, you may have been moved or encouraged as you heard yet another song with a message of encouragement to help you as you fight your personal battles and struggle through life’s difficult circumstances.  The song is indeed very encouraging, but if you stop at the self-centered message and not see the God-centered message of the song, we think you are missing the bigger theme of the song.

For us the focal point of the song is this:

God’s plan from the start
For this world and your heart
Has been to show His glory and His grace
Forever revealing the depth and the beauty of
His unfailing Love
And the story has only begun

Recently a young lady shared this song with us.  She had come to us in her struggling with some trials and difficulties.  As we sat and chatted with her, we attempted to be a blessing and encouragement to her, but instead she blessed us with this song and its message.

As we seek to further the Kingdom of God on this earth by ministering to the Bahamian people and those that come to serve the Bahamian people, we do face times of difficulty and discouragement, but God is faithful.  He brings us encouragement and help when we need them and in ways we least expect it.  We can rest assured that everything is working out for our good and God’s glory as we remain faithful to Him.
