Is Your Soul Hidden?

In trials, we don’t always sense God’s protection. Feelings  of vulnerability overwhelm us until He seems distant and deliberately uncaring. I know. Far too often, I’ve endured difficult circumstances that made me wonder if I really mattered to Him.

Of course, He always brought me through those trials, abundantly proving both his faithfulness and how deeply He loves me. And of course I felt ashamed and embarrassed for doubting Him. I saw, in the hindsight that is so clear, how wonderfully the Lord protected me from turning away from Him in bitterness and anger.

Indeed, Jesus is a wonderful Savior, hiding the souls of His beloved to preserve us until He brings us Home. Today’s hymn challenges me to look, not at my trials, but to Him, trusting that He’ll cover me with His hand.

    Amen, Sister! Over the past 8 years I was thrust into increasingly difficult trials, culminating with my last living sibling threatening to sue me over my parents’ estate. I wondered if I had done something to warrant such trials by my Lord, fearing the loss of our ever-protective Shepherd. But, a great sister in the faith has kept me focused on the prize rather than the overwhelming difficulties of life. We must be overcome, no matter how the Adversary wants to sift us in our circumstances. Blessings!
