Hymn Challenge 2019

Day 9

Written by Joy Chukwu

Have you ever wondered why some things just happen without a fore warning?

Why sometimes you fail an exam even after studying?

Why some Christians are in lack even when their father owns the universe?

Why you find it difficult to win that your friend over to christ?

Why the world keeps getting worse regardless of the prayers Christina are organizing every day?

Why the sun should rise in the east and not the south?

Why he(God) made you fair not dark?

I used to wonder too until i came across this hymn in the church’s hymnary

Let’s look at the second stanza together😃

TEMPTED AND TRIED,WE’RE OFT MADE TO WONDER
WHY IT SHOULD BE THUS
ALL THE DAY LONG
WHILE THERE ARE OTHERS
LIVING ABOUT US
NEVÉR MOLESTED THOUGH IN THE WRONG.

Pause!

Did you notice the word “others” ?

You’re fearfully and wonderfully made, designed and crafted after his own very image.
God brings some things our way which we can’t reason out. He can’t be questioned but his name will be glorified at a later time through the situation he brings your way.

Chorus

Farther along we’ll know all about it
Farther along,we’ll understand why
Cheer up my brother (my sister)
Live in the sunshine
We’ll understand it all by and by.

(maybe not now…but the assurance remains…someday,we’ll understand it)
