When God Says “No”

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

If answers that I seek are not to be,
Then help me, all the more, to trust in Thee.
To trust Your grace to be sufficient for
The heartache and the pain that lie in store.
To trust Your peace to calm the raging storm.
To trust Your will, regardless of its form.
For Lord, I know Your will and way are best;
That I learn faith and patience with each test.
So grant me wisdom, Lord, and eyes to see
Your hand at work to lift and strengthen me.
“’For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,’
declares the Lord.”
Isaiah 55:8 NIV
