The celebration of communion included some great music yesterday.
God Moves in a Mysterious Way has always been a moving hymn, especially knowing how William Cowper struggled his entire life with depression.
But the combination of this hymn, my oldest son with his arms wrapped around my neck as I held him, and anticipating the celebration of the Lord’s supper – tears came to my eyes at the wonder of God’s extraordinary goodness as we sang these verses:
Judge not the Lord by feeble sense, But trust Him for His grace; Behind a frowning providence He hides a smiling face.
His purposes will ripen fast, Unfolding every hour; The bud may have a bitter taste, But sweet will be the flower.
We sang a different musical arrangement at church, but I like how the Sovereign Grace team put the version below together. Enjoy our great and merciful God today!
