While We Learn To Trust His Will

 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: 
because he trusteth in thee.

 The weather, like life, sometimes allows sudden light to stream through the storm...

The Unknown groans and oft we do not know how we should pray
Mercy atones ineptness; God hears what we cannot say
From founts of faith His love and grace bids fear’s turmoil ‘be still’
While we, students of love’s heartache must learn to trust His will

There are no Unknowns to He who sees, not with mortal gaze
His precepts taught in forums oft foreign to mankind’s ways
How small the visage of us all; God’s Reason veiled until
We see Him face to face; for now we learn to trust His will

The valley; who could bear it without God to calm and cheer
His Ever-present spirit whispers and comforts our tear
While we with step-by-step dependence climb Time’s holy hill
And cling to He who holds us while we learn to trust His will

Before I was afflicted I went astray,
but now I obey your word.
You are good and what you do is good;
teach me your decrees.


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed!
