An Open Door Policy

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

Lord, I’ve got some great ideas
I’d like to share with You;
As if You cannot see it all,
Or haven’t thought it through.
Yes, in my head I know You’ve got
It all under control.
But sometimes I just feel the need
To clarify my goals,
Or just remind You of the things
You’ve promised that You’ll do;
Instead of waiting patiently
To hear the plan from You.
But now I see that’s not the way
That prayer’s supposed to be.
It’s not about my wants, at all,
But drawing close to Thee.
For only then will my desires
Fall into line with Yours.
And only then will my requests
Be met with open doors.
“There are many plans in a man’s heart,
Nevertheless the LORD’s counsel—that will stand.”
Proverbs 19:21 NKJV
