MM#2 “Thy Will”~Hillary Scott & the Scott Family

 

“Thy Will” By Hillary Scott and The Scott FamilyHillary-Scott-Thy-Will-Cover (1)

“Thy Will” is a new single from Hillary Scott (the lead singer from Lady Antebellum) and her family.

It is a beautifully worded song that I feel sums up my life over the past few years. I think this is a song many others will relate to as well.

I’m so confused
I know I heard you loud and clear
So, I followed through
Somehow I ended up here

I’m confused at why God is bringing me through this health journey and confused at why I’ve ended up in a dark place so very many times.

I don’t wanna think
I may never understand

It’s so hard for me to think that God is going to bring me through all of this heartache and at the end of it all I still may never understand why. Trust. I just keep trusting though because there IS a purpose.

That my broken heart is a part of your plan

How could a loving God include a broken heart in His plan for my life? Doesn’t He love me enough to give me a life I can enjoy? Or even enough to just give my mind an hour-long break every once and a while?

When I try to pray
All I’ve got is hurt and these four words

Thy will be done.

He does love me; I can say that with certainty. In fact, He loves me so much that He is using my brokenness…He sees that the goodness that will come from my broken heart is immensely greater than my life without the hardship. He loves me so much that He wants to bless me with that greater life. The greater times to come.

I know you’re good
But this don’t feel good right now

Oh, I KNOW God is SO good! But yes, this journey does not feel good. It’s horrible, awful, and terrifying. The OCD, the mental torment, and the memories, are extremely painful.

And I know you think
Of things I could never think about

God is DIVINE! He sees, knows, and thinks about things so imagebeyond us humans. We can’t comprehend all the wonders of the universe because we wouldn’t be able to handle it.

It’s hard to count it all joy
Distracted by the noise

It’s really hard to count my trial of OCD, PTSD, anxiety, depression, and seizures all A JOY because, again, they hurt! It’s hard for me to think and concentrate never mind do anything productive! How am I supposed to count all of that a joy? It’s hard.

Just trying to make sense
Of all your promises
Sometimes I gotta stop
Remember that you’re God
And I am not

That part couldn’t be more true! How many times each day do I make big plans for my future then God takes me somewhere completely different and unexpected then I get upset or worried that I’m not ‘where I want to be.’ Sometimes I think I know whats best…but I certainly do not! God is the only one who can see the whole picture; I can only see the puzzle pieces.

I know you see me
I know you hear me, Lord
Your plans are for me
Goodness you have in store
I know you hear me
I know you see me, Lord
Your plans are for me
Good news you have in store

After the honest verses just pouring out heartfelt cries out of grief, this beautiful bridge sums up the true reflection in my heart. The things I surely know to be true.

My prayer and my motto since I’ve discovered this song have been the 4 words of the chorus:

“Thy will be done.”

My prayer for you is that you can hold these 4 words dear as well.

 

Listen to the song on Hillary Scotts official YouTube channel Here.

Here re are the lyrics to the whole song:

“Thy Will” By Hillary Scott

I’m so confused
I know I heard you loud and clear
So, I followed through
Somehow I ended up here
I don’t wanna think
I may never understand
That my broken heart is a part of your plan
When I try to pray
All I’ve got is hurt and these four words

Thy will be done
Thy will be done
Thy will be done

I know you’re good
But this don’t feel good right now
And I know you think
Of things I could never think about
It’s hard to count it all joy
Distracted by the noise
Just trying to make sense
Of all your promises
Sometimes I gotta stop
Remember that you’re God
And I am not
So

Thy will be done
Thy will be done
Thy will be done
Like a child on my knees all that comes to me is
Thy will be done
Thy will be done
Thy will

I know you see me
I know you hear me, Lord
Your plans are for me
Goodness you have in store
I know you hear me
I know you see me, Lord
Your plans are for me
Good news you have in store
So, thy will be done

Thy will be done
Thy will be done
Like a child on my knees all that comes to me is
Thy will be done
Thy will be done
Thy will be done
I know you see me
I know you hear me, Lord

Add yours

  1. Summer you are an incredible gifted writer who is honest and vulnerable, and you are an encourager. I am always amazed as well as touched when I read your thoughts/experiences. More people (including myself) should be courageous enough to allow themselves to be so transparent and vulnerable. You are an incredible source of wisdom/and knowledge. What a great advocate you are for mental illness. Only God Himself knows what is in store for you for your future-it may very well be to be a spokes person /a motivator speaker for mental illness…you may even write a book, or take to the roads-and have speaking engagements . And what an incredible teacher . Thank you for continually be patient with me for all my short comings of when I don’t say the right words/terms or when I ramble on and say too much-like now-ha! I love you kiddo!! Debb
