Sovereignty, Goodness, and my way

I was out playing taxi driver yesterday, fretting and stewing about some upcoming timing issues, wondering how things would turn out, turning the situations over and over in my mind, trying to find some way to *make* things work out the way I want them.
Suddenly, the words on the radio broke through my worrying…
After all, You are constant  
After all, You are only good  
After all, You are sovereign  
Not for a moment will You forsake me
Oh.
Yes.
I’d lost sight of that.
I wrestle repeatedly with these two truths and how they fit together –
~ God is sovereign and good
~ God doesn’t always give me what I want
I love how this song reminds me of His sovereignty and His goodness in a way that checks my desire for my own way.
Thank You, patient Father. Help me to remember that You are sovereign, that You are good, that those constants never change, regardless of circumstance.  Help me to trust You as much as I long to love You…
