He Knoweth Best

Hey Everyone,

Its REALLY snowing outside right now! I love the snow (especially when I can look out at it through a window and I'm inside nice and warm!)

The Lord has really been doing a work in my life lately. "Poking and Prodding" (if you will) in areas of my life that were still "mine" and I didn't (and still kinda don't) want to let them go. But I know that these things don't last for eternity. How easily we can get caught up in the cares of this world. I see my sin and the Lord has opened my eyes for which I am thankful. He is showing me that I need to hold things like this


and not like this
If I hold things to tightly he cannot use me because I will bring too much with me. But if I hold things with an Open hand the Lord is free to take and to Give. You can't give something to someone if they have a closed hand.

True Joy can only be found when we surrender all to the only one who knows it all.
He knows what is best.

A good Friend sent me this poem and it spoke to me. Hope you are blessed.

HE KNOWETH BEST

When you lie in bed wondering what you're doing,
Or decide to move, but don't know where you're going,
Be calm and trust Him, for He knoweth best!

When you are confused with the twists and twirls of life,
Or at the brink and sick of all your struggles and strife,
Be calm and trust Him, for He knoweth best!

When you feel like you're really at your very end,
Or when you feel defeated and have no love to lend,
Be calm and trust Him, for He knoweth best!

Your father up above,
Is always looking down with love,
Be calm and trust Him, for He knoweth best!

He is with you, will be to the end,
For He unlike men, His word will never bend.
Be calm and trust Him, for He knoweth best!

When making decisions, never do you need to fear,
For your Father in Heaven, has promised to always be near.
Be calm and trust Him, for He knoweth best!

Be still and quiet; let Him speak to you,
He is the almighty, never with Him argue.
Be calm and trust Him, for He knoweth best

    Hey Melodie!
    I was surprised to read my poem off of your blog. I am glad God used my poetry to speak to you. I stand amazed at how the Lord uses even poems that I think aren't my best!
