Thanks to my mom, (who posted this song on Facebook yesterday) I have something beautiful to share with you today and the story behind the origin of this song makes it even more precious.
I have always loved the group, Lady Antebellum, and I have especially loved Hillary Scott's voice. It is tender and beautiful as is she. As I read this article about her experience with a miscarriage and writing this song, my heart wept for her. I have never experienced a miscarriage myself, but when I think about my four children, I cannot imagine the sorrow and hurt that fills your soul when you lose a child. It doesn't matter if you are barely pregnant, extremely pregnant, or if the child has been born and taken his or her first breath-- losing a child is heartbreaking. My sincerest sympathy and love goes out to everyone who has had the unfortunate experience of losing a child.
Any time you experience pain and sorrow, it is hard to function through those feelings. Sometimes we want to lash out at God and say,
"How is this possibly something that is good for me?"
It's okay to feel that way.
As a parent He watched His only Begotten Son bleed from every pore and cry out in agony. He had to stand by and allow His Son be spit upon, forced to wear a crown of stinging thorns, carry His cross upon the torn up flesh of His whipped back, and then be nailed to that cross. All the while knowing that He had the power to stop it all, but He couldn't. Because of His love and because of His Son's pure love for us, it had to be done.
And so we can take the example of our loving and gracious Father in Heaven and apply that to the tragedies that occur in our own lives. After the anger and hurt subsides, we can hopefully come to a place where we can recognize that each of our trials can teach us valuable lessons. If we allow ourselves to be tutored by His Spirit and humble ourselves to the point where we can say with sincerity, "Thy Will Be Done," that is when our hearts can truly begin to heal.
"Thy Will"- Hillary Scott and the Scott Family
I’m so confused
Here is a little video snippet with Hillary sharing some of her thoughts on the song...
I am loving my second chance at life.
