I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Poetry Do I Trust or Turn Away?

It is easy to talk about trusting Jesus
When all goes well,
Without major bumps in the way.
But in times of tragedy, betrayal,
Frustration, pain,
When God isn’t following my plan,
He seems so far away,
Leaving me uncertain, frightened, scared.
Does, then, all my talk about trust dissipate
Into a panic array?
Do I turn away or
Will I choose to trust in my Lord, in His Word,
With all my heart?
Will I seek His guidance each day,
Listen…wait,
Knowing the God who created, lives and loves me
Will walk beside no matter what?

Yes, I will choose to trust because this I know
He’ll be with me wherever I go, and
His grace will cover me day by day.
In Him I’ll be Ok.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths. –Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV)
