"No Surprise" - A Poem

Don't be surprised if folks come and go
from your life according to God's holy flow.
Remember that 'holy' means He's set apart
your life for His purposes so in the dark
and places of travel where you've been unsure
you'll know His hand's on you and you'll be secure.
He's just separating the things that don't match
and laying out for you the wisdom to catch
His vision and good plan for freeing your life
from worries and heartache and fear and all strife.
Don't be surprised when life echoes all
He's purposed and planned for your heart since the fall.
He's the God of Redemption and freedom from sin,
the only One on Whose strong side you will win.
His favor is yours, quickly there for the asking
with blessings of love and of life everlasting.
The end of His purpose is just like the start:
your whole life redeemed and transformed to His heart.

The Lord remains focused on His plans for the total redemption of our lives, beloved.  When we yield to His definitions and don't rely on our own no matter what we see, we have peace.  He is faithful to confirm His purposes and remind us of the words, dreams, and visions He's given us concerning His eternal, specialized blueprint and intentions.

Rest in Him and His powerful abilities on your behalf, dear ones.  I am, and I'm not surprised that His faithfulness remains, His mercy endures, and His love for me is everlasting.  So is His love for you.

God bless you!


"... fervent in spirit, serving the Lord."
(Romans 12:11b)
