Hi. I'm Janet Roller: wife of one, mother of two, lover of coffee and writer of songs. I have just finished my first fiction novel and I'm looking forward to watching how God uses the simple story to minister to others. God is a big deal to me. My goal each day is to wake up and declare, "This day is Yours, Lord. Show me what to do with it."

Then Sings My Soul Saturday - Trust His Heart

Hello, Saturday "Then Singer's". Today I've posted one of my all-time favorites by Babbie Mason. I had the opportunity to attend The Inner Circle songwriter's conference last year. It was wonderful.

All around us people are struggling - relationships, health, death, finances, job loss...

This song is such a reminder to not look at today's circumstances.

God's plan is bigger than circumstances.

All things work for our good

Though sometimes we can't see how they could

Struggles that break our hearts in two

sometimes blinds us to the truth

Our Father knows what's best for us

His ways are not our own

So when your pathway grows dim,

and you just can't see Him

Remember you're never alone


God is too wise to be mistaken

God is too good to be unkind

So when you don't understand...

When you don't see His plan

When you can't trace His hand

Trust His heart


He sees the master plan and

He holds our future in His hands

So don't live as those who have no hope

all our hope is found in Him

We see the present clearly but

He sees the first and the last

And like a tapestry He's weaving you and me

to someday be just like Him


He alone is faithful and true

He alone knows what is best for you

I love the verse that starts, "God is too wise to be..." My aunt sent me that in college on a notecard. I still have it in my Bible. Great song!
