Messy Monday – No Mistakes
God Makes No Mistakes
My Father’s way may twist and turn,
My heart may throb and ache,
But in my soul I’m glad I know,
He maketh no mistake.
My cherished plans may go astray,
My hopes may fade away,
But still I trust my Lord to lead,
For He doth know the way.
Tho night be dark and it may seem
That day will never break,
I’ll pin my faith, my all in Him,
He maketh no mistakes.
There’s so much I cannot see,
My eysight far too dim,
But come what may, I’ll simply trust
And leave it all to Him.
For bye and bye the mist will lift,
And plain it all He’ll make,
Though all the way, tho’dark to me,
He maketh not one mistake!
I came across this poem while reading Karol Ladd‘s book, “Positive Principals for Creating Calm and Peace.” It really opened my eyes. The past year was brutal both mentally and spiritually. I questioned everything God gave us. Why me? Why us? I have been reading this past week about everyone’s recollection of 2011 and sounds like it was a struggle for most people. Why them? Why now?
In focusing of this year’s word “Contentment” I have already been trying to focus on Him and leaning on him to provide for me a safe place. However, when I don’t immediately see those times, I will continue to focus on God. Trusting Him to get me through it. I can’t expect everything to always be rosy, but I can expect Him to be there with me until those mists lift, because He never makes any mistakes.
