This I Know…

By: Julie Thompson

Below is something I wrote awhile ago, but it still holds meaning to me today. I wrote it at a time that I was questioning God – I didn’t know why He was allowing certain things to happen. He reminded me that instead of focusing on what I don’t understand, I need to focus on what I know to be true.

So, I opened up my Bible and these verses resonated with me – Isaiah 41:10, Isaiah 43:2, Isaiah 46:4, Isaiah 49:16, Isaiah 55:9, Psalm 33:4, Psalm 46:1, John 1:5, and Romans 8:28. They inspired the following words….


Another day goes by
And I’m left wondering why
Things are happening the way that they are
Sometimes life can be so hard

Brokenness surrounds me
And I’m finding it hard to believe
That you can bring good out of this
How can it be

But this I know – you’re always faithful
And this I know – your word is true
And this I know – you’re always loving
This I know – you’re my refuge

We all have our scars
Some can be seen from afar
Some are hidden from view
But healing can come through you

You’ve engraved me on the palm of your hands
On your promises I will stand
Your ways are higher than mine
Through the darkness your light will shine

You will carry me, when I can’t see
You will rescue me, when the water’s deep
You will sustain me, when I feel weak

This I know – you’re always faithful
And this I know – your word is true
And this I know – you’re always loving
This I know – you’re my refuge
And I will trust in you
