All Will Be Well

One of my favorite bands is called The Gabe Dixon Band. For some reason today, things kept happening to make me depressed, until this evening. I got home from hanging out with a friend, and it just seemed like everything was sad. I watched most of “Babel” and had to turn it off cause it was just making me feel depressed. After dinner with mom, my parents were gone for the evening so I tried to entertain myself, again trying to finish “Babel” but again too depressing. Then I watched some “Law and Order” later on- depressing again. A sixteen year-old girl trades sex in order to get someone to murder her mother. And then I thought I’d enjoy the “Wonder Years” later on, and the first episode was this sad episode about Kevin’s grandfather who can’t see well enough to drive anymore and has to finally let go of that part of his life, of which he has so many good memories.

I too am in the process of learning how to let go and trust. It’s not easy. Trust means that we don’t have control. Letting go means exactly that: letting go of something we once treasured, but it also means trusting that there’s something different or better in store. I’m not an expert on the subject. But John 14 says “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God and trust also in me.” Simple words, not so simple to follow. I’ve made a lot of blunders in this area.

The reason why I mention the GBD is cause they have a song that really speaks about trust.

All Will Be Well:

The new day dawns
And I am practicing my purpose once again
It is fresh and it is fruitful if I win
but if I lose, ooh, I don’t know
I’ll be tired but I will turn and I will go
Only guessing ’til I get there then I’ll know
Ohh, I will know

And all the children walking home past the factories
Can see the light that’s shining in my window
As I write this song to you
And all the cars running fast along the interstate
Can feel the love that radiates
Illuminating what I know is true

And all will be well
Even after all the promises you’ve broken to yourself
All will be well
You can ask me how but only time will tell

The winter’s cold
But the snow still lightly settles on the trees
And a mess is still a moment I can seize until I know
That all will be well
Even though sometimes this is hard to tell
And the fight is just as frustrating as hell
All will be well

And all the children walking home past the factories
Can see the light that’s shining in my window
As I write this song to you
And all the cars running fast along the interstate
Can feel the love that radiates
Illuminating what I know is true

And all will be well
Even after all the promises you’ve broken to yourself
All will be well
You can ask me how but only time will tell

You got to keep it up
And don’t give up
And chase your dreams
And you will find
All in time

And all the children walking home past the factories
Can see the light that’s shining in my window
As I write this song to you
And all the cars running fast along the interstate
Can feel the love that radiates
Illuminating what I know is true

And all will be well
Even after all the promises you’ve broken to yourself
All will be well
You can ask me how but only time will tell

All will be well
Even after all the promises you’ve broken to yourself
All will be well
You can ask me how but only time will tell
You can ask me how but only time will tell
