Song for a Sunday // It’s Gonna Be Worth It

“It’s Gonna Be Worth It”  by Rita Springer

I don’t understand Your ways

Oh but I will give You my song

Give You all of my praise

You hold on to all my pain

With it You are pulling me closer

And pulling me into Your ways

Now around every corner

And up every mountain

I’m not looking for crowns

Or the water from fountains

I’m desperate in seeking, frantic believing

That the sight of Your face

Is all that I need

I will say to You

It’s gonna be worth it

It’s gonna be worth it

It’s gonna be worth it all

I believe this

Oh, I’d forgotten how much I loved this song.  The CD, Effortless, was a birthday present in 2002, the year I “discovered” Rita Springer.

If you’re going to sing a song about not understanding God’s ways but deciding to worship Him anyway, right in the middle of everything, then it should be this strong, this desperate, and have this intensity.

“Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, my Help and my God.” Psalm 42.5 Amp.

It’s true.  I don’t understand His ways.  But I’d rather be in His presence at those baffling times because He can see what I cannot.
