Life seems so hard to put into place,
Building a future, running the race,
I look at my life, all that I planned,
And wonder how things could get so out of hand.
So many “constants” have drastically changed,
The future uncertain, my thoughts rearranged.
So I find myself down on my knees to pray,
Asking God, “Why is life going this way?
I thought my future was written in stone!
Why didn’t You help me? Am I all alone?”
Then God smiled down on my worrying tears,
And in a few words dispelled every fear.
“Trust Me, dear child of Mine, I can see
All that you are, and all you will be.
I know all your dreams, but here from My view,
I see that My plans will be better for you.”
What a thought, that the One who is holding the key
To all heaven and earth, has a plan for me!
So I’ll read His Word, and continue to pray,
Let go and let God take control every day.
He knows the best, so I’ll just wait and see
What beautiful plans He has for me.
