He Knows What He's Doing

It hurts to see you this way.

I’m lost for words. There’s so much I am wanting to say.

Though I don’t understand,

I’ll hold your hand. I’ll hold your hand.

If I had it my way, I’d take this from you,

But God, He knows what He’s doing.

So here while our hearts break, we have to believe,

That God, He knows what He’s doing.

Our God, He knows what He’s doing.

He’s never failed us before.

He has shown us His goodness, His love will endure.

His ways are higher than our own.

Whatever the road. Whatever the road.

If I had it my way, I’d take this from you,

But God, He knows what He’s doing.

So here while our hearts break, we have to believe,

That God, He knows what He’s doing.

Our God, He knows what He’s doing.

One day we will see.

One day we will find.

All of the answers to the question why…

If I had it my way, I’d take this from you,

But God, He knows what He’s doing.

So here while our hearts break, we have to believe,

That God, He knows what He’s doing.

Yes, our God, He knows what He’s doing.

This song by Jason Crabb has so many applications that I can’t possibly name them all. But although it relates to so many different things, it feels as if it was written for each one specifically. Whether you are watching a loved one suffer through cancer, or your marriage has come to a place you never thought you’d see, or something suddenly happened that has left you questioning everything you know, no matter what you may be facing or going through, one thing remains the same: God knows what He’s doing.

To the parents who sit in the waiting room anxiously as their child undergoes major surgery, there are no words that I could say that would make things any better. With all the thousands of encouragements and “hang in there” type sayings that come to mind, I am still lost for the words that will take their pain away. But when all seems to be lost, the one thing that we can hold on to is that God knows what He’s doing.

To the broken heart that grieves the loss of their spouse, their mother, their father, or any other loved one, there is nothing that I can say that will fill the void inside. As I stand there helplessly and watch you fall apart, the only thing that I can do is hold your hand and be there with you so that you won’t have to be alone. But even when we lose what can never be replaced on this side of heaven, we can hold onto the fact that God knows what He’s doing.

To the family member who watches from the hospital room chair as their loved one suffers from cancer, there is no promise that I can give that they will beat it or that they won’t feel the pain of it eating their body away little by little. I cannot take it away from them, as bad as I wish I could. But even through heartache and despair, one thing remains the same, that God knows what He’s doing.

To the husband or wife who’s spouse has run off with someone else and left them alone after years of being together, I can’t explain why it happened. I can’t explain to them what went wrong, or how they’re supposed to tell their kids that their mom or dad isn’t coming back home. I don’t know how to help them pick up the pieces of what’s left of their life and continue on, but I do know that God has never failed us before, and even when we don’t understand, He knows what He’s doing.

To anyone who suffers or watches a loved one suffer from a chronic illness or disease: depression, Chrohn’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, fibromyalgia, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, ALS, MS, stroke, neuropathy, or any other condition that forces them to alter their daily life because of pain or coping with the disease, I don’t have the answer to why you are going through this. I can’t tell you why you have it or what purpose there is that it was allowed to be a part of you. But I can tell you Who does know why and that God knows what He’s doing.

To quote another song, “I don’t know what tomorrow will bring. I can’t tell you what’s in store. I don’t know a lot of things. I don’t have all the answers to the questions of life. But I know in Whom I have believed.” I don’t have to know why things happen, or what will happen next, or even what to do when things come my way. I just have to remember the times where God has brought me through and trust that He will take care of me one more time. He will never leave us. He never has, and He never will. If I had it my way, I would take this from you. But it’s not my way, it’s God’s way. And, yes, He knows exactly what He’s doing.
