Tag Archive: The Way the Truth and the Life


God worked through my sister-in-law who wrote a beautiful poem and posted it the very day I was struggling to trust in His timing and provision.

I hope it is as much of a blessing and encouragement to you as it was to me.

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”   Proverbs 3:5-6

Trusting Through Trials

Father God please help me to trust

My timing is NOW

But Yours is not

This trial this test

I don’t understand

I know I can’t make it

Except by Your hand

That must be why

The storm has come

To teach me to trust

To prepare me for

The trials to come

The storm is tumultuous

The wind knocks me down

Which is perfect because

My knees is where must be

The bitter rain stings my face

Causing me to bow my head

My tears mingle with rain

As I come to understand

It’s not the why but the how

How will I make it through

I know there is but one way

The Way the Truth and the Life

He has been with me every day

Urging me to give my cares

To Him and Him alone

To grow my trust

To let go of my fears

To rest in knowing He never left

He is here and will dry every tear.

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”   Revelation 21:4
