Never doubt that God is in control. There are times especially looking at world events we think God has forgotten about us, however God is in control and He has a plan. Let these poems encourage and reminded
you that God is with each one of us and He is in control!
I said, "I'll walk this road alone, my plans are all arrayed; I don't need interference, I will not be dismayed. I have the gift of knowledge, I have a brilliant mind; My talents are fulfilling through which much joy I find." My well-established pattern creates my life of ease, A lifestyle lived in comfort, to do the things I please.
Then there's this sudden challenge - my health seems to give way, My concentration's weakened, I wonder, "Will this stay?" Oh, surely, I'll get better, I'm never sick for long, It's my great constitution; I've always been real strong. Yet, this is quite consuming, there seems no end in sight; I've followed doctor's orders, but things just are not right.
I'm alone, I think a lot - it's all that I can do, There must be a solution for what I'm going through. Then one day in the stillness, a small voice comes to me, "I must get your attention, it's time that you should see. The life that you've created will some day end in grief, The pattern you have followed can never bring relief.
Your problems will be constant, no comfort can be found; Your life has been established on very shaky ground. I'm offering a solution - let God direct your way, He's patiently been waiting; He longs to hear you say: 'Oh God, You are my Shepherd, I leave You in control; I've messed things up quite badly, I've never reached my goal.
But God, with Your permission, I'd like to join Your team, And have You as my Pilot to ferry me upstream. I realize my error, I've tried to swim alone,
But God, please be my Lifeguard and bring me safely home.
