Thy Will Be Done

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:9-10

Did the Lord realize how hard it would be to say those four little words? Thy. Will. Be. Done. I think so. Alone, in the midst of Gethsame, just before his death, the Lord prayed. Twice.

Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me. And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. Matthew 26:38-39

He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done. Matthew 26:42

Thy will be done…

…is letting go when we want to cling

…trusting when we don’t understand

…hoping when all seems hopeless

…believing He is able

Thy will be done…

 

Do you ever struggle with that phrase?

    • I agree, Jennifer. I have to remind myself I am not the one in control! That song is powerful in the raw emotions and the truth of the matter. Hillary Scott dug deep and it shows in her words.
