Some day it really won't matter,
The things that I've had to go through,
The pain and the suffering, the tears I have shed,
His plans surpass all in review.

Some day my questions He'll answer,
The "whys" that have lingered within,
He'll lay out His pattern, at last I shall see,
His way, not my ways, will win.

Confusion, frustration, that haunts me
Will be put to rest in His time,
It really won't matter once I see His face,
The mountains that I've had to climb.

I truly was never abandoned
Though I felt my prayers went unheard,
He carries me through every valley,
I know this 'cause I have His Word.

The trials allowed one day will make sense,
Disease and evil abound,
But He has a plan that I can foresee,
His glory will one day astound.

Some day it really won't matter,
The things we have had to go through,
The pain and the suffering, the tears we have shed,
His plans surpass all in review.

I admit, I let the notice for this article sit in my inbox for a while but God told me I needed to read it today. Beautiful poem that spoke to my heart and in my life. Thank you, my friend.

So trusting and hopeful, my sweet friend. Reminds me of Samuel Longfellow's "I Look to Thee in Every Need.", especially the first verse: "I look to Thee in every need and never look in vain; I feel Thy strong and tender love and all is well again: The thought of Thee is mightier far than sin and pain and sorrow are." Shalom :)
