What Will Be Will Be - Victor Hafichuk
It’s in a child’s heart to believe it can determine its destiny. From the time it’s born, it is making up it’s mind what to do, where to go, how to go. It thinks of tasting, experiencing, possessing, and enjoying. It isn’t long before it discovers things aren’t that simple. It very soon discovers there are other powers making the decisions it counts on or isn’t happy about, and there’s not a lot it can do about it.
So with the walk of Reality, the True Christian walk. When I first believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, I thought I had arrived. I thought the time had arrived for instant victory, pleasure, prosperity, peace, happiness, and security. I was in for a gradated shock and disillusionment. Which eventually led to submission in all things to a higher power, which turned out to be none other than The Highest of Powers, the One Lord God Almighty, Creator and Sustainer of all things.
At long last and loss of everything, including myself, I came to possess those things I had hoped for, including myself. There is a place of true victory and peace. It just doesn’t come by our own power or in the way expected or preferred. Ironically, we discover we had desperately clung to the wrong way and determinedly resisted the Right Way.
I wrote this song in the midst of a lifetime of diverse trials. Now, in the end, life begins in earnest.
