The following poem was shared by my mother-in-law who received it years ago. It has been meaningful to her, and I love that she shared it with me. Now I’d like to share it with you. If you are familiar with it’s author, please let me know so I can give them credit! Be blessed:
BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD
WHEREVER YOU MAY BE,
YOU CANNOT GO BEYOND GOD’S REACH,
HE HEARS THE FAINTEST PLEA.
HE KNOWS THE PROBLEMS THAT YOU FACE,
THE HURT YOU’RE GOING THROUGH,
BECAUSE YOU ARE HIS OWN DEAR CHILD,
HE WANTS WHAT’S BEST FOR YOU.
HE HOLDS THE FUTURE IN HIS HANDS,
HE SEES WHAT LIES AHEAD,
AND HE WILL SAFELY GUIDE YOU
THROUGH THIS TIME THAT YOU NOW DREAD.
OH WEARY ONE, KNOW THAT GOD IS NEAR,
TRUST IN HIS WILL AND WAY,
HE IS WAITING THERE TO HELP YOU
HE’S JUST A PRAYER AWAY.
