wilderness - o. c. supertones

for some reason, i really love this song. it seems to sum up how i feel all in one big....song, i guess. (the music is really cool, too) it is comforting for me to hear this and read it, especially the las to parts of it. let me know what you think.

The rain falls on the righteous and the wicked
And mine is not to reason why this is
In this I rest in this I find my refuge
That my thoughts and ways are not His
I spent my life on looking up the answers
It's rare that I can't find a reason why
But reasons fail and children without mothers
His plan is more than I can know

Have you ever held in doubt
What this life is all about
Have you questioned all these things that seem
important to us
Do you really wanna know
Or are you a little scared
You're afraid that God is not exactly what you'd have
Him be
What should I hold to and what should I do
How do I know if anything's true
I'm somewhere in-between Canaan and Egypt
A place called the wilderness

I'm not one who always trusts their feelings
I don't believe in what you'd call blind faith
But faith that you can do all that you promised
And you said it all works for good
It's safe to say I don't see the big picture
I can't see the forest for the trees
And if five hundred lives
Were mine to get to know
You all could be spent on just this

God do you really understand what it's like to be a man
Have You ever felt the weight of loving all the
things you Hate
Have You struggled have You worried
How can You sympathize

I have spoken much too soon put my hand over
my mouth
I can't contend with You
Your ways are so much higher
And we pass through the fire that Christ endured
before us
When You were in the wilderness

i've never heard that song before but it sounds good. Wow, i can completely identify with the second to last stanza sometimes. It feels so wrong to question God but it's like God even as Jesus you always knew what would happen in the end so it wasn't so much of a big deal to think about pain and suffering cuz you knew good would triumph in the end, but yet I don't know what's going to happen, and I'm tempted to worry, in fact i DO worry... sigh.
