You Are The Master

Regular readers of this Journal know that the past several days have been very difficult here.

I told you about the excruciating pain from my recent back injury. A few days later, I told you about the death of my biological father.

But, the day before I hurt my back, I suffered a devastating loss. I didn’t tell you about it, although a few people were able to read between the lines and figure out that one of my Journal entries was about much more than just my back pain.

And after everything else that had happened, yesterday brought an even more shockingly devastating loss that I’m not going to tell you about.

So right now seems like an especially appropriate time to reaffirm that I am a man of faith.

My wife and I know that, over the years, our Lord has sustained me through many trials that were even worse than what I’m going through right now.

And to me, the only thing that would make all of the things that I’m going through even worse, would be to have to try to endure them without faith.

I can’t even imagine how some people do it.

So here’s my basic faith statement, in a song that I wrote in 1982:

You Are The Master

I will thank you, Lord, for whatever you give me.
However much or little, I’ve decided
I will thank you, Lord, for whatever you give me.
You see my every need and provide it.

‘Cause you are the master —
I’m just a servant in your name.
No matter what happens, I’m gonna serve you just the same.
You are the master —
I’m just a servant in your name.

I will serve you, Lord, with the life that you give me.
However long or short, it’s for you to fill.
I will serve you, Lord, with the life that you give me.
Let every breath I take, be for your will.

‘Cause you are the master —
I’m just a servant in your name.
No matter what happens, I’m gonna serve you just the same.
You are the master —
I’m just a servant in your name.

I will love you Lord, for the love that you give me.
Whatever comes or goes, you are with me.
I will love you Lord, for the love that you give me.
From this day till my last, through eternity.

‘Cause you are the master —
I’m just a servant in your name.
No matter what happens, I’m gonna serve you just the same.
You are the master —
I’m just a servant in your name.

You are the master —
I’m just a servant in your name.

You are the master —
I’m just a servant in your name.
