Please give me a new understanding of what
it means to do Your will in all my plans. It seems
That each time my lips frame the words,
“I put all things in Your hands,” Immediately
my hand reaches out to snatch them back…
Give me eyes to view each situation from Your
perspective – The long range. And since I cannot
see tomorrow, may I rest its questions in Your hands.
For only You can shape my future for good.
I recall unnumbered times that You have seen
Me though – when foolish pride had blocked my
View and human blunders clogged the way.
But when matters are turned over to you, things
Are different! I stop stewing and worrying.
Stories from Scripture come to mind of how You
Helped people of old with problems of the same
Kind. Then I begin to watch for doors to open
In your own way and time.
Peace has come to my heart since I’ve started to
accept Your plan. It is always the best one!
