The Lord has said no to me.
Despite my pleas and “pretty please”.
He knows His plan for my life,
My role as Believer, mother, wife.
And all the things in between,
He uses all with tenderness,
For He’s in no way mean.
I no longer think of asking why,
With my hope only of by-and-by,
In Heaven I’ll think no more to ask,
The purpose of this life’s task.
Instead I pray with renewed heart,
The prayer that can never fail,
Whether my faith is strong, or frail.
“Not my will but Your’s O Lord,
Not my will but Your’s O Lord.”
“Give me strength to hear and obey,
Not my will but Your’s this day.”
Grant my surrender willingly
To Your plans and not mine,
My gift to You through this time.
Amen. d.f.a.v. 3/29/15
