Savior of My Soul
 Prayer Song © 2011 S.D. Harden All Rights Reserved

O, I will trust the living God,
The Savior of my soul-
I may not understand His ways
But He is in control.

My path may be obscure

And in the darkness lie,
But I will hope in Jesus

Who holds me in His eye.

He will not forget me

For I have been engraved
Upon His holy hands;
For Him my soul is saved.

For Him I am redeemed,
For Him I am reserved;

For Him I am a trophy
Of His grace to be preserved.

And though I sit in darkness
With trees that will not bud,
I have a promise from the Lord
That spring will surely come.

Though winter struts along

Like it will never end;
It’s just a giant’s shadow~
The spring He soon will send.

God’s promises are sure

Though I must walk by faith;
Such wonder in believing;
Such hope it generates!

Oh I will trust the living God,

The Savior of my soul;
O Lord, you know the paths I take,
For You are in control.

Yes, You are in control;

You know what’s best for me;
You’ve set apart unto Your heart
Those who will but believe.

And you will keep your promises

To those who trust in You
Though they may not understand 

The mysteries of Truth.

Though I sit in darkness
On a path I had not planned
I will trust I am engraved 
Upon Your holy hand.

And You will keep Your promises,
For You are in control,
O You will not forget me,
O Savior of my soul.

Little Prayers  (Detail ) © 2014 S.D. Harden All Rights Reserved.


Heavenly Father, thank You for the assurance that You are always in control of all things. Thy word says in Psalm 103:19, "The Lord has prepared His throne in the heavens; and His kingdom rules over all," and in Hebrews 1:3 that You "uphold all things by the word of Your power."

Romans 8:8 assures me that every detail of my life is being orchestrated by You into something grand and beautiful and for my ultimate good because You care very much about each one of us. 
Psalm 138:8 promises that You will "fulfill Your plans for my life." So I don't need to worry about whether or not I am going to accomplish Your will for me. You will get me on the path I need to be on. And all I need to do is Trust You.

Lord, though it is so difficult sometimes, please help each of us to trust You when we cannot see past the bend in the road, when we cannot fathom Your purposes for us in the path we are on. Help us to trust You when nothing makes sense. Help us to keep our eyes on You anyway; to know that You are in control and that You cherish each of us beyond what we could ever imagine or believe.

May the sense of Your abiding presence sustain every person praying this prayer. May they feel You with them as they never have before. May You renew their faith, fill them with new hope, and give them joy.

Thank You, dear Lord, I love You, In Jesus' name. Amen.
