Our ways and His…

The Bible says God’s ways are as far above our ways as the stars are above the earth.  So far, in fact, that it cannot be comprehended by the mind of man or woman.  Why would the answer to one prayer be yes and the answer to another be no?  Why would there be a flood, a drought, a tornado?  There is no understanding it.  But by faith, we can trust that He does know, does care for us, does listen to our prayers, and does hold us in His hand, turning everything to His purpose, which ultimately is that we become more and more like Jesus.


Life is not my own…

i am not a maker of promises

i am not a spinner of fine threads of dreams

i cannot weave happiness into tomorrow

though I try

life is not my own.

i follow on

i am a follower

i live by listening

and trust to grow

and grow by trusting more

still more

come along

i follow on.

my footsteps climb a path

i cannot see

i do not need to see

the Light is strong

the darkness gone

and Love blows like the wind

the breath of Life

still given not my own.

where are the promises

i have them here

where are the answers

there is but One

i follow on

the path grows hard

the stones are sharp

i follow still

beyond me and above

lies a pasture green and rich

and happiness

still given not my own

it is not mine to give.
