Up thinking about the Jones’
What it means to be a friend
They’ve always been there for us
Now’s our turn to pray they mend.

Injured in a car crash
Returning from a time with family
We pray that God will hold them
And restore them to all that they can be.

How life can change in a moment
From thoughts of retiring, having fun
To fighting to keep on breathing
Another day to serve the Son.

In life we learn some very hard lessons
And most don’t seem to make much sense
Like why good people have to suffer
While around others God’s placed a fence.

It’s in these times of testing
That our faith legs do appear
As we continue holding on to Jesus
And put aside all doubt and fear.

And all we can do is trust Him
After all He knows what’s best
Since he’s the God that made ’em
There’s no need to second-guess.

So rest in God’s assurance
There’s no reason for us to doubt
Our God knows what He’s doing
And in the end it all works out.

About menmourningmoments

I'm happily married, the Father of 2 sons and 2 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Death is all around us but somehow we've managed to distance ourselves from it. Men, Mourning, Moments is about how the death of my son awakened me to life & the desire to seize every moment as though it were my last. It's about making sense of life in the good times and bad and allowing GOD to carry me and teach me through the hard times in life.
