The Answer

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

The answer to my prayer is not just seeing what He’ll do;
Nor is it being told the how or why.
Instead, the answer comes in seeing God's unfailing love,
And in the grace that He, alone, supplies.
So I must trust His love, alone, and not what I might see;
For God’s not bound by human space or time.
He may already have the answer heading on its way;
And it may not be what I had in mind.
But it will be the very best my Father has to give.
And that will be the very best, indeed.
The answer to my prayer, then, is this simple, awesome truth:
Assurance that my Father’s loving me.
“But the LORD watches over those who fear him,
 those who rely on his unfailing love.”
Psalm 33:18 NLT
