A poem to encourage you

I choose to trust

I do not know why I must suffer pain today.
I can not see how you will take it all away.
But I choose to trust in you, Lord, I choose to trust.

I do not understand where you are leading me,
Or if the things that I desire will ever be.
But I choose to trust in you, Lord, I choose to trust.

I pray for all that I desire and dream to do.
I know that your plan is perfect for me ‘tis true,
So I choose to trust in you, Lord, I choose to trust.

I forget to wait in patience for you to lead.
I try to plan my own way to have what I need.
But I choose to trust in you, Lord, I choose to trust.

I will not think of what I could do if only…
I seek your strength and wisdom to serve you wholly.
For I choose to trust in you, Lord, I choose to trust.

I do not have enough to serve you on my own.
I ask you for the strength beyond what I have known.
For I choose to trust in you, Lord, I choose to trust.

This world around me if full of evil and fear,
But you are by my side you will always be near.
So I choose to trust in you, Lord, I choose to trust.

In Heaven one day, I will see your loving face,
And I will praise your name for ever in that place.
For I choose to trust in you, Lord, I choose to trust.

  • Bethany,

    Did you write that poem? It is very good. I trust that you are receiving my Monday updates from Newfoundland. I want you to know I am proud of you. I thank God for the good work He is using you to accomplish. If you would please pray for our VBS this week. Last year it was very poorly attended. It was honestly discouraging. We have put a lot of time in flyers, prayer, decoration…and we have to leave the rest to the LORD.

    • Yes, I did write it. Thank you it means a lot knowing how God has used your poems to bless me. Yes I am receiving your updates and I am praying for you. Love you.

  • Oh Beth! My mother’s heart hurts for you and at the same time is so encouraged that you are trusting your heavenly Father. If only I had that much trust at your age…

    ❤️ You. Think of you often and pray for you too.

    Terry
